Circle's origins are in cryptocurrency payment technology but its interests have expanded into investments, OTC services and cryptocurrency trading.

Background

Circle Internet Financial was launched in October 2013 with $9 million in investments.[1] In late April 2015, Goldman Sachs announced that along with IDG Capital Partners it was planning to lead a $50 million financing round into Circle.[2]

Recent Developments

In late February 2018 Circle announced that it was purchasing Poloniex, one of the largest cryptocurrency markets at the time.[3] Bloomberg reported in June that Circle was planning to apply for both banking and securities licenses so its customers could deposit insurable funds with it and trade cryptocurrencies that might be deemed to be securities under U.S. regulations.[4]
