Poloniex News

Poloniex is a popular digital asset exchange and margin trading platform that was founded in 2014 by Tristan D’Agosta, an early cryptocurrency investor and entrepreneur. Just three years after its launch, Poloniex was purchased by fintech startup Circle, in a deal that reportedly valued the exchange at $400 million.

Catering to both novice and more experienced users, the Poloniex platform is designed to be easily accessible, while still offering powerful trading features that appeal to experienced traders, including margin trading, dozens of technical indicators and an easy-to-use API.

In addition to its cryptocurrency exchange platform, Poloniex also offers a lending feature, allowing you to lend funds to those trading on margin, though this feature is not available for users from the US.

Besides this, the strong security features offered by the platform make Poloniex one of the safest exchanges to store your funds on, with two-factor authentication, round-the-clock transaction monitoring, and air-gapped cold storage used to protect your funds.
