Austin, TX (April 18, 2017) – Factom, Inc., a blockchain as-a-service (BaaS) technology company has closed their Series A funding at $8,029,796 USD following the launch of its mortgage product, Factom Harmony.

“The Factom Harmony launch was such a resounding success that we extended the Series A round for additional investors,” said Peter Kirby, Co-founder & CEO of Factom. “We’re very appreciative of our early investors who doubled-down on their participation and the new investors who are helping us strategically extend our reach. Many highly intelligent people worked very hard to help us get to this point and we couldn’t have done it without them.”
