We grew by 300% in 2023 and were able to close a new financing round

We’re on a mission to let you take control of your future. In other words: Make buying Bitcoin as easy as possible. Our investors share this mission, and thanks to strong growth in 2023, we closed a new round of financing.

Read on to learn who our new funding partners are and what we have planned further to position Relai as the number one Bitcoin platform and bring Bitcoin to everyone’s portfolio.

Zurich, 18th January 2024

Contrary to the current trend in the investor market, we have successfully closed a financing round with well-known investors and a rising valuation. This success comes at a time when the VC landscape is struggling with significant declines. The financing round underlines our team’s great market potential and innovative approach.

Because we grew so quickly in 2023 and our services found even more users, prominent Swiss and European investment community figures participated in the financing round.

These include Luzius Meisser, Bitcoin pioneer and co-founder of the Bitcoin Association Switzerland, and Jan Brzezek, founder and former CEO of Crypto Finance AG. Other participating investors were Jeff Booth’s Ego Death Capital, Timechain, Cabrit Capital, Lightning Ventures, and a large German family office. With this financing round, we plan to expand our product offering, increase marketing efforts in Switzerland, and drive European expansion through a MiCA license in France.

“Despite the current downturn in the venture capital market, we are delighted to have secured this smart money funding from such reputable investors. Their confidence in Relai underscores the strength of our product and our team. This interim success motivates us to continue our long-term mission to bring Bitcoin to 100 million Europeans.”

Julian Liniger, CEO of Relai

In addition to the new funding round, we proudly announce that Richard Byworth, Partner at Syz Capital and former top executive at Nomura, is joining the Board of Directors. He will use his more than 20 years of experience in the financial and banking sector to support us in our European expansion and further fundraising activities.

We are delighted about the additions to the Board of Directors, the expansion into Europe, the new and familiar faces of our investors, and, of course, the exchange with you, Relaier! Without you, this wouldn’t be possible, and we know our community is cheering us on every step of the way.
