The Series B financing, led by one of the world’s largest investment banks, will be used to fund Coin Metrics’ global expansion, according to a statement from the company.

BlockFi, Acrew Ventures, Morningside Group and Warburg Serres Investments also joined the funding round. While Castle Island Ventures, Highland Capital Partners, Fidelity Investments, Avon Ventures, Communitas Capital, and Collab+Currency each increased their respective stakes in the company.

The company this year announced it would be tracking the “real” supply of Bitcoin, for example. And last year, the firm’s lead analyst Karim Helmy suggested a new technique to measure miners’ activity.

Goldman Sachs, one of the biggest investment banks in the world, has shown greater interest in cryptocurrency as of late. The firm was previously skeptical but has since restarted its cryptocurrency trading desk and is keeping a close eye on the Bitcoin market, according to recent comments by CEO David Solomon.
