This bull season has not just led to cryptocurrencies reaching their new highs and the crypto industry growing into a nearly $3 trillion industry, the widespread adoption of crypto assets has also led to soaring demand for crypto service providers. The soaring mainstream demand and growing recognition have also helped these crypto companies raise millions of dollars leading to multi-billion dollar valuation. Apart from Paxos, Chainalyis and BlockFi also became billion-dollar firms after their latest funding round.
