Poloniex’s Tumultuous Journey
Poloniex has had its share of ups and downs recently. It started operations in 2014 and soon catapulted itself to the top exchange spot. Over the years, it lost market share due to stagnant market policies and decreasing user base. In February 2018, it was bought by Circle for four hundred million dollars ($400M).
Later, the exchange moved away from Circle and came under the aegis of an Asian investment group backed by Justin Sun. Now, Poloniex has an expansion budget of one hundred million dollars ($100M) that will focus on increasing the operations base and build new infrastructure.
