Jambo, a cryptocurrency firm located in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has acquired $30 million in a Series A fundraising round from several renowned investors.

Pantera Capital, Delphi Ventures, Kingsway Capital, and Gemini Frontier Fund have invested in the six-month-old cryptocurrency firm, with Paradigm leading the newest round.

Jambo recently raised $7.5 million in initial financing from significant crypto investment companies like Coinbase Ventures, Alameda Research, Tiger Global, and Polygon Studios.

James and Alice Zhang founded the company Jambo. The startup wants to create a Web3 mega app for Africa, akin to WeChat in China, to serve as a center for the continent’s whole digital economy. On its Medium account, the crypto firm has formally declared the end of the financing round.

In reality, the firm has already established operations in 15 African nations. The firm provides students with laptops and high-speed internet via thousands of internet cafés and campus booths. Web3 is also providing 10-week courses.

Jambo also hopes to take advantage of Africa’s expanding crypto sector to use the disruptive technology better. In addition, the diminished faith will aid Jambo’s ambition to enroll millions more Africans into Web3 in governments and the smartphone-savvy populace.

As Paradigm’s first investment in Africa, we couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Jambo team in this next phase of growth. We see massive Web3 potential in Africa. It’s clear that James and Alice are uniquely positioned to build a durable on-ramp for the continent,” stated Casey Caruso, an Investment Partner at Paradigm. 

The current financing will be used to grow into more African locations, employ engineers for Web super app development, and recruit ambassadors for its Web3 teaching initiative.

In collaboration with investors, Jambo wants to develop the AfricaDAO investment fund, which would give financial assistance to entrepreneurs with similar interests. As a result of greater crypto use in numerous African nations, Jambo predicts future success.

The Central African Republic became the continent’s first nation to accept Bitcoin as legal currency.
