The investment complements GIC’s previous blockchain-related investments, including Anchorage and the BC Group, which were also part of the earlier Series E round. Michael Gronager, co-founder and CEO of Chainalysis, said on the subject:

“GIC acknowledges Chainalysis’ data system and customer network, as well as our leadership team’s capabilities and the market opportunity that lies ahead of us.”

Gronager also claimed that the organization would be extending its operations to the APAC region.

Chainalysis also offered a summary of the goals it hopes to achieve with the funds raised. As the asset class obtains mainstream popularity, the company expects this investment to help with “product innovation and scaling its global operations to meet consumer demand.”

According to the company’s figures, Chainalysis has experienced substantial growth. Year over year, the company’s consumer base has grown by 75%. Furthermore, the company has added new business by teaming with Dapper Labs to expand NFT-related operations.
