The Intercontinental Exchange has been working to bring their new crypto asset platform Bakkt into fruition for quite some time. Despite not being launched quite yet, Bakkt has still been working on its own development in the meantime. Most recently, the platform became the subject of a $182.5 million funding round, which is the first time that they have hosted this type of event. The funding was announced by CEO Kelly Loeffler in a Medium blog post, which noted that the funding round included 12 partners. Some of those investors for the Bakkt round included Boston Consulting Group, Galaxy Digital, Goldfinch Partners, ICE, M12, Pantera Capital, and Protocol Ventures.
