BitGo Expands into Private Securities with Acquisition of Brassica

For the first time, a single platform is available to service both traditional private securities and blockchain-based assets globally, allowing for the tokenization of real world assets.

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 7, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Brassica is an innovative provider of investment infrastructure for private securities and alternative investments.

  • Acquiring Brassica bridges the gap between private securities and digital assets within the capital market ecosystem by providing flexible, secure and scalable investment infrastructure.

  • This will advance the digitization of the alternative asset industry in support of a financial services economy that is borderless and accessible 24/7.

BitGo, the first digital asset company that has been focused exclusively on serving institutional clients since 2013, today announced its acquisition of Brassica, a financial technology company specializing in providing back-end infrastructure services for private securities and alternative investments. With Brassica's comprehensive infrastructure solutions for private securities, this integration allows accessibility in the industry, making both alternative and digital investing more approachable and widespread, paving the way to compliant opportunities in real-world assets.

With this acquisition, BitGo becomes the first major financial services firm to be able to provide comprehensive infrastructure support for both traditional private securities and blockchain-based assets, while significantly expanding our global presence," said Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo.

BitGo, which was valued at $1.8B in 2023 upon completing a $100M raise, will further develop new Brassica products across asset classes to provide comprehensive services and integrated platform solutions for its customers. Brassica brings with them an impressive technology stack including multi-asset custody, advanced capital formation solutions and streamlined record-keeping and transfer agent services. This strategic acquisition will significantly boost BitGo's ability to drive innovation in the alternative asset industry while supporting a larger swath of forward-looking customers.

"We currently have a dichotomy in financial services - one side deals with traditional securities and the other deals with up-and-coming blockchain-based assets and cryptocurrencies. With this acquisition, BitGo becomes the first major financial services firm to be able to provide comprehensive infrastructure support for both traditional private securities and blockchain-based assets, while significantly expanding our global presence," said Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo,

"Joining forces with BitGo is a significant step towards Brassica's ultimate vision of building the financial infrastructure of the future," added Youngro Lee, Founder and CEO of Brassica. "Our strength lies in our 'one stop shop' approach of providing API-enabled infrastructure for the alternative assets industry. This sector is rapidly growing and bringing in new investors around the world. Our technology-focused development, combined with our deep domain expertise in securities and banking laws, uniquely position us in the market, especially for sophisticated clients dealing with the complexities of private securities and digital assets."

BitGo's industry-leading position in digital asset services, combined with Brassica's innovative private securities infrastructure, sets the stage for a new era in financial services — one that's digital, borderless and inclusive.
