ACINQ raises $1,7 M to accelerate worldwide adoption of the Bitcoin Lightning Network


The French company has just raised $1,7 M in Series Seed funding led by us and with the participation of Bertrand Diard (Talend), Sébastien Lucas, Bitcoin trader Alistair Milne and Yves Weisselberger (KDS, Snapcar).  We are really happy to welcome Pierre-Marie Cadiou, Fabrice Drouin & Dominique Padiou in #SerenaSquad.

Currently, ACINQ is recognized as one of the top 3 actors in the world for Lightning and is one of the main contributors to the Lightning Network standard, a community effort which allows anyone to build interoperable software and join a single, global payment network.

The objective of this new funding for ACINQ is to grow its engineering team, develop new Lightning-based services and more generally do everything it can to help build and grow the Lightning Network.
