TRES secures $11M funding to expand multi-chain tax reporting
Tel Aviv-based cryptocurrency accounting and taxation reporting platform TRES has successfully raised $11 million in a funding round led by Faction Ventures, with participation from New Form, Boldstart Ventures, Cyber Fund and Ambush Capital.
Sustained investor buy-in
The firm announced this latest financing round on its website on Wednesday. It brings TRES’s total funding to $18.6 million. This recent instance of funding comes on the heels of TRES’s previous success in securing $7.6 million in seed funding in September 2022. That round was led by Boldstart Ventures and Alchemy Ventures. The diverse participation included F2, New Form, Kenetic Capital, Blockdaemon Ventures and Mantis.
With Miami-based Boldstart Ventures being a key investor in both funding rounds, Boldstart partner Shomik Ghosh took to social media on Wednesday to comment on this latest development, stating:
$19B client base
TRES currently serves a client base with combined assets valued at $19 billion, offering comprehensive solutions to manage, monitor and reconcile digital asset activities. The platform supports over 100 Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains, including popular ones like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana and Avalanche. Notably, TRES has ambitious plans to continually expand its supported blockchains, aiming to introduce support for “new blockchains every week,” according to a recent announcement.
As the cryptocurrency industry witnesses increased institutional adoption, there is a growing demand for sophisticated accounting and taxation reporting tools, mirroring those available in traditional finance. TRES is working towards positioning itself to address this need by providing a comprehensive solution for firms to gain a “full and accurate picture across all of their Web3 financial activity,” stated Tal Zackon, co-founder and CEO of TRES.
Zackon emphasized the importance of compliance across accounting, audit and reporting functions, asserting that TRES facilitates an easy path for customers to navigate these regulatory landscapes. The Series A funding round, led by Faction Ventures, signifies TRES’s commitment to further developing its platform to meet the evolving needs of the crypto industry.
Zachon told The Block that the outlook for crypto looks bright in terms of extending its appeal to new market participants. He stated:
“This next bull cycle will have something that no other bull cycle before it had — dozens of live blockchain networks, thousands of decentralized applications, battle tested infrastructure, and the adoption by major banks and government organizations around the world. The number of companies that will hold crypto on its balance sheets is about to explode, and we are here to serve them — no matter how complex the transactions are.”
With this latest round of venture capital backing, TRES appears to be well-positioned in striving to become a key player in facilitating transparent and compliant financial operations for an ever-expanding array of blockchain networks and decentralized applications. As the crypto industry matures, the importance of robust accounting and taxation reporting solutions like TRES is poised to grow in tandem with the increasing complexities of financial transactions within the blockchain ecosystem.
