Digital asset risk management infrastructure provider, Andalusia Labs, has successfully raised $48 million in a Series A funding round, achieving a valuation of $1 billion and thereby reaching Unicorn status. The funding round was spearheaded by Lightspeed Venture Partners, with contributions also coming from Mubadala Capital and other existing investors such as Pantera Capital, Framework Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, and Digital Currency Group.

  • Andalusia Labs secured $48 million in a Series A funding round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, resulting in a $1 billion valuation.
  • The fundraise saw participation from other investors like Mubadala Capital, Pantera Capital, Framework Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, and Digital Currency Group.
