Singapore-based BitX has announced that it has raised an undisclosed amount in fresh funding from Venturra Capital, a Southeast Asia-focussed VC fund launched by former Rocket Internet and Monk’s Hill Ventures Partner Stefan Jung, Google Indonesia CEO Rudy Ramawy, and Lippo Group Director John Riady.
The fresh funding round comes five months after BitX raised US$4 million in Series A led by Naspers Group, with participation from Barry Silbert’s Digital Currency Group, in July.
