January 17th Report: Top FinTech Funding Rounds

Welcome to 2020 and a new decade of fantastic fintech funding. First up for the new year is Securrency, pioneer of blockchain-based financial and regulatory market infrastructure. Watch out – the tokenization of the financial world is underway. The firm locked in $17.6M worth of Series A, led by WisdomTree Investments.

Our next big spender is Locale with an $11M Series A. Billed as an upscale short- and long-term accommodations for the discerning traveler. Get your home-away-from-home on, resort-style pool included. A unique stand out from the group is TypingDNA, which uses AI and biometrics to recognize people by how they type. This NYC-based big brother just cashed in $7M in Series A from Gradient Ventures.

We don’t have much space left, so a quick seed lightning round: Edquity is a special financial planning app for students; Collbox somehow blends ethical cloud-based debt collection; Dottid promises seamless SaaS leasing options for commercial real estate; Balance is the digital Fort Knox for the crypto world; Fundraise Up supercharges online donations with human-centered brilliance.

We’ll end with our solo pre-seed, Savvy. NYC folks are about to get faster, smarter, better tenant screening with this new-comer.
