Trying at all costs to develop its portfolio of companies, Bitcoin Group SE continues to multiply its acquisitions. Just yesterday, we found out that he intended to buy one of the oldest banks in Germany: the Bankhaus von der Heydt.
Bitcoin Group SE takeover project: rumor or truth?
The news was reported on October 20 by Bloomberg Law. Sources familiar with the matter were even cited to support this information. According to the data collected, the sale would be worth more than 20 million euros (or 19.6 million dollars).
