Kaiko wants to become the go-to source for consolidated financial market information in crypto. Customers of its trade and order book data feeds include the likes of CoinShares, Messari, Paxos and Ledger.

In tandem with announcing its Series A raise, the startup has unveiled Kaiko Stream, a new service that connects institutions to consolidated crypto data feeds that are akin to traditional financial data products.

Kaiko closed a $5 million seed raise in September 2019, again led by Anthemis, with Kima Ventures, Point Nine Capital, ConsenSys Ventures, Olymp Capital and CoinShares also participating.

Data startups in the crypto sector are drawing a lot of investor attention at present. CryptoCompare, the London-based data firm, last week secured a strategic investment from VanEck, the asset management giant.
