Q3 2022 Crypto & Capital Markets Tech Insights

Sample Slide 1 Sample Slide 2 Sample Slide 3 Sample Slide 4

Key Highlights:

    Wealth & Capital Markets Tech
  • Wealth & Capital Markets Tech private company financing volume dropped further in Q3 2022 to $1.7 billion, representing the lowest volume since Q4 2020.
  • Lower funding volume can be in part attributed to fewer "super-sized" funding rounds of $100 million or more. There were only three rounds of this size in Q3 2022 compared with an average of 10 per quarter in 2021.
  • Additionally, the percentage of smaller financing rounds (less than $10 million) increased each quarter this year so far – 44% in Q1 2022 all the way to 66% in Q3 2022.

  • Crypto & Blockchain
  • Crypto & Blockchain private company funding volume fell 71% in Q3 2022 to $2.1 billion from the all-time high reached in Q1 2022 ($7.4 billion).
  • Heavy strategic participation in Crypto & Blockchain financing rounds continued in Q3; a full 62% of all capital raises in the sector YTD have included at least one corporate investor.
  • M&A activity in the space continues to fly mostly under the radar, with exceptions for prominent failed entities such as Voyager Digital – acquired by FTX for $51 million in cash – and new SPAC mergers.
