Cryptocurrency finance company Circle Internet Financial Ltd. According to a statement released on October 5th, the equity source funding platform and broker-dealer acquired SeedInvest. For now, nothing has been explained about the process.

SeedInvest based in New York, established in 2012 as an initial investment platform. Since then, it has been reported that the company has pursued a capital increase policy for 220 companies with more than 240 investors. The average investment per company through SeedInvest is $ 500,000, the largest investment is said to be $ 2,000,000.

After the acquisitions are approved by the Financial Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Circle will allow SeedInvest to expand offers to support crypto coins, including fiat fixed debts and export and securitized securities.

In addition, it is reported that companies can capitalize through a regulated platform, access retailer portfolios through Circle Invest, and provide Circle with secondary market liquidity in Circle’s crypto-currency exchange transaction.

One of the conditions for listing a company on the SeedInvest platform is that a project must have at least a minimum applicable product or prototype. This contrasts sharply with the world of ICO, where the projects alone do not lead to an increase of millions of dollars based on a white paper.

The circle already has about 260 employees in offices around the world. SeedInvest can bring 30 more employees to Circle’s New York location.
