Hardware wallet maker Ledger has just closed a massive Series C funding round led by digital asset fund 10T Holdings. The Paris-based company raised $380 million, according to a press release on Thursday.

Ledger’s funding round also garnered support from Cathay Innovation, Draper Associates, DCG (the parent company of CoinDesk), Korelya Capital and Wicklow Capital, among others.

The Series C raise places Ledger with an implied valuation of more than $1.5 billion, marking the company’s rapid and accelerating growth, according to the release.

Ledger’s previous raises came by way of a $7 million Series A funding round in 2017 and a further $75 million via a Series B in 2018.

10T Holdings was launched as a $200 million fund by investor and entrepreneur Dan Tapiero earlier this year in a bid to capture new capital from institutional investors.
