SINGAPORE, May 19, 2022– Coins.ph, the Philippines’ leading fiat and crypto wallet services provider and Joffre Capital portfolio company, today announced the successful completion of a $30 million Series C financing led by Ribbit Capital, and joined by other strategic investors.
The new capital will be used to further expand its Web3 ecosystem and presence throughout Southeast Asia.
Coins.ph is Southeast Asia’s leading mainstream super app that boasts over 16 million users with licensed fiat and crypto wallet and exchange services including cryptocurrencies, e-wallet, and payments.
The Company is regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and is the first-ever blockchain-based company in Asia to hold both Virtual Currency and Electronic Money Issuer licenses from a central bank.
“As the Philippines continues to witness the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies, there is a real need for a secure, regulated, and user-friendly product in the market.
“We are solving that problem by delivering crypto and payment services that allow our customers to access, invest, trade, and spend their crypto assets seamlessly as a part of their daily lifestyles,” says Wei Zhou, CEO of Coins.ph.
Zhou says the company enables users, even those without bank accounts, to easily access a wide range of financial services directly from their mobile phones.
The mission is to increase financial inclusion across Southeast Asia’s largely unbanked population of 650 million through our highly trusted brand and long track record of operating in full compliance with regulations.
“We see a massive opportunity to capture new users as engagement with Web3 surges in the Philippines and beyond.
“We will continue to build upon our leading market share and acquire new customers with a product that connects digital-first users with real-world goods and services.
“The completion of our Series C is a significant milestone for Coins.ph, and will allow us to accelerate and scale faster, bringing us one step closer to achieving our vision of being the go-to platform for all crypto, Web3, and P2E gaming in Southeast Asia and beyond.” Zhou adds.
The additional funding will support the Company by reinforcing the platform’s crypto-native credentials and adding new products and services.
Current growth plans include adding more cryptocurrency tokens, upgrading and relaunching the Coins.Pro exchange, offering additional crypto-focused merchant and payment services, supporting GameFi and guild management products, and entering new geographies. /PRNewswire/
