Alto Global Processing: Canadian Bitcoin Processor Nets $8.5 Million Round

alto global processing-Canadian-Bitcoin-Processor-Nets-8pt5-Million-RoundVogogo, a Canadian e-commerce processor based in Calgary, said last week it has secured an $8.5 million round of financing that will enable it to expand its recent success in processing bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in Canada to the U.S. and other countries around the world. The 13-year old company said it handles $6 to $10 million in cryptocurrency-based transactions monthly and that its dedication to “[meeting] strict compliance and risk mitigation requirements of conventional banks and regulators” will help bitcoin shed any negative perception that remains.

“We had been watching Bitcoin and crypto currencies closely. As a payments company we were very intrigued by the potential of Bitcoin,” said Vogogo Co-Founder Geoff Gordon. “We watched several crypto groups enter the Canadian market, have a lot of success only to then be shut down by their bankers due to payment-related fraud and/or no compliance structure. We put the Vogogo platform in front of a few crypto groups to resounding success in Canada. We are now adjusting our platform to scale these services and we will be replicating the service in the U.S., EU and other target markets.”

Cormark Securities led the funding round with participation from Salman Partners Inc., Clarus Securities Inc., Beacon Securities Limited and Canaccord Genuity Corp.
