Miner company Bitmain acquires bitcoin data startup Blocktrail

posted almost 6 years ago
Bitmain, the operator of one of the bitcoin network’s largest mining pools, has acquired a bitcoin data and analytics startup for an undisclosed amount.

With the acquisition of Blocktrail, Bitmain will seek to bolster the services it offers at BTC.com, a block explorer and analytics service it launched last September. The acquisition is the latest in what has proved to be a year of consolidation for the industry, which has seen particular activity in the exchange sector.

Blocktrail, co-founded by VKontakte co-founder Lev Leviev, would now be increasing its European team "significantly".
