European crypto firms in Q4 of 2021 reach record-breaking numbers of €793 million (roughly $925 million), as reported by Dealroom, the analytics platform. 

Q4 Investments on the Lead 

Crypto investments in Europe have surpassed Q1 at the beginning of Q4. The last record marked was that of 2021 Q1 as crypto companies earned €715 million (roughly $834 million) by signing 25 deals.

Big names like MoonPay, Celsius Network, Elliptic have played a significant role here, and the last record was beaten with merely six deals.
