Blockchain: Trends, Financing and M&A in 2018

Blockchain is at an inflection point, and it is gaining momentum in aspects ranging from exploration to building, and from financing and to acquiring practical business applications. Total blockchain and crypto-related deals have surged more than 200% at an annualized rate this year, according to data from PitchBook. 115 deals involving cryptocurrency or blockchain had been announced, on pace to hit 145 by the end of 2018. The count is up significantly from the 47 total deals completed last year when Bitcoin's price was surging to almost $20,000.
