Congrats to Circle, the US based company for the big milestone in UK.

Bitcoin Company Circle Granted E-Money License in Britain, Partners with UK Bank Barclays

This enabled the Boston-based company to fast-track its way through the process of obtaining the license, making it the first digital currency company in the world to be granted an E-Money license.

While Barclays figures as Circle’s first big banking partner, the bitcoin startup has a big bank backing it up as an investor. In April 2015, Goldman Sachs was revealed as the lead investor in Circle’s funding round, one which saw the Bitcoin company raise $50 million.
