Imperii Partners served as the financial advisor to AscendEX in support of the Series B fundraise process.

Launched under the name ‘BitMax’ in July 2018, AscendEX offers exchange, custody, and staking services. Further, AscendEX has positioned itself as an infrastructure partner to blockchain companies in the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector and operates as a validator and yield farming portal.

“AscendEX plans to use the Series B funds to accelerate international market entry, and catalyze further product innovation, specifically focused on blockchain-based yield generating protocols. Building a bridge to the DeFi ecosystem has allowed AscendEX to differentiate itself from other cryptocurrency exchanges and has made the platform a popular destination for innovative DeFi projects to conduct initial exchange offerings (IEOs).”
