Fireblocks raises $ 16 million

NEW YORK — June 11, 2019— Fireblocks (www.fireblocks.com), an enterprise platform for securing
digital assets in transit, announced today its launch out of stealth mode with $16 million in Series A
funding from Cyberstarts, Tenaya Capital, Eight Roads (the proprietary investment arm of Fidelity
International), Swisscom Ventures and MState.

Fireblocks’ customers, which count some of the largest institutional digital asset trading operators like
Galaxy Digital, Genesis Global Trading and more, use the platform to safeguard the digital assets in its
portfolio as it is moved across exchanges, OTCs, brokerages, hot wallets, and cold storage. Currently,
Fireblocks is integrated with 15 digital asset exchanges and offers support for over 180 cryptocurrencies,
tokens, and stablecoins.

More than $3B in digital assets were stolen by hackers over the last 18 months due to private key theft,
spoofing, and compromised credentials. Recently, Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the
world lost $40MM in bitcoin due to an insecure hot wallet and compromised API credentials. Founded by
Michael Shaulov and Pavel Berengoltz, whose mobile security company Lacoon Mobile Security was
acquired by Check Point (NASDAQ:CHKP), and Idan Ofrat, the VP R&D of C4 Security which was
acquired by Elbit Systems (NASDAQ:ESLT), Fireblocks aims to eliminate the root cause of digital asset
hacks and scams.

“While Blockchain based assets by themselves are cryptographically secure, moving digital assets is a
nightmare. After interviewing over 100 institutional customers, including hedge funds, broker-dealers,
exchanges, and banks, we concluded that the current process is slow and highly susceptible to cyber
attacks and human errors,” said Michael Shaulov, CEO and Co-Founder of Fireblocks. “We built a
platform that secures the process and simplifies the movement of funds into one or two steps.”

Joined by top security engineers from Symantec, Trusteer, IBM security and leading cryptography
advisor, Prof. Ran Canetti, Fireblocks is introducing the first patent-pending Secure Transfer Environment
that works with a Hot Vault system. Together, it enables digital assets to be easily transitioned from any
storage solution to be primed for immediate settlement and transfer on the blockchain.

“Moving digital assets 24/7, across the globe, uninterrupted, while meeting all enterprise security
requirements is industry changing,” said Ivan Brightly, CISO of Galaxy Digital.“ For digital asset trading
operators, the Fireblocks platform provides a robust security system for digital assets, whether stored or
in transit.

“Sitting as part of the broader Fidelity group, we realize that cybersecurity is crucial in the adoption of
blockchain and digital assets,” said Davor Hebel, Partner, Head of Eight Roads Ventures Europe. We
are excited to support the Fireblocks team as it develops a cutting edge technology that will help propel
digital assets trading to the next level of evolution, enabling huge improvements in operational
efficiencies, security, and trust.”

“Securing Blockchain based assets is one of the key challenges in modern Cybersecurity warfare, and it
requires heterogeneous expertise in mathematics, system level programming and years of hands-on
Cybersecurity experience,” said Gili Raanan, Partner at Cyberstarts and Sequoia Capital. “The
Cyberstarts team is thrilled to partner with Michael, Idan & Pavel, who amazed us with their technology
breakthrough to eliminate risk from digital assets management.”
