Unidentified parties tell mainstream media the wallet provider wants to buy equity and cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency wallet and statistics resource Blockchain (formerly Blockchain.info) is reportedly raising $50 million in a new funding round.
According to Yahoo! Finance citing two anonymous sources on Sept. 4, Blockchain is already negotiating the cash, which it will use to invest in equity and purchase unnamed cryptocurrency tokens.
Blockchain eyes fresh expansion
The sources added that Sam Harrison, who joined the company in 2018 to co-found its Blockchain Ventures spin-off, is in charge of proceedings.
Blockchain has yet to confirm the reports, which come on the back of previous round in March this year.
More broadly, Blockchain has sought to diversify its crypto industry presence away from just Bitcoin (BTC), a move which has earned it criticism.
These have included a $125 million giveaway involving altcoin Stellar (XLM) last November, and resisting calls to implement Segregated Witness (SegWit) for Bitcoin users, something which would reduce the cost of sending transactions from its wallet.
Last month, BashCo, the Reddit user in charge of moderating the r/Bitcoin subreddit, publicly criticized Blockchain for failing to offer SegWit.
Since the technology’s activation in Aug. 2017, he argued, consumers had opened 31 million non-compatible wallets with the company.
