The money continues to flow into crypto

Bitcoin is higher today after an earlier dip.

The crypto space also continues to attract real money investments. Payments company Circle has acquired US crypto exchange Poloniex today.

Circle is partly back by Goldman Sachs and hopes to become one of the leading companies in the world of blockchain technology.

"We're proud to announce that Circle has extended its commitment to a new vision for global finance by acquiring Poloniex, a leading token exchange platform," Circle founders Sean Neville and Jeremy Allaire said.
