Apart from SoftBank and Coinbase Ventures, the list of investors includes Valor Capital Group, Globo Ventures, Canary, and other companies.

Hashdex emerged back in 2018, founded by a former Microsoft executive Marcelo Sampaio and Bruno Caratori.

Earlier in 2021, the company rolled out Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fundo de Indice – that was their first crypto ETF in Brazil.

They now plan to set up more new offices beyond Brazil and to expand their staff to 100 people from 25 at the moment.

Earlier this year, Coinbase went public via a direct listing on the Nasdaq exchange.

The net income of $17.7 billion reported by the company is the highest quarterly profit since 1990.
