Bitcoin.org is getting a new redesign after 5 years. The community run website’s significance is huge as the domain registered by Bitcoin’s founder Satoshi Nakamoto.
New UI focuses on the ease of information access, and navigation while giving the website a modern look and feel. The site has grown exponentially in popularity as Bitcoin adoption has increased. Last year alone, there were over 30 million visitors to Bitcoin.org. These visitors viewed the site’s pages over 200 million times.
The blog post that announced this news also said:
“One of our goals in 2018 has been to modernize the look and feel of Bitcoin.org. Each day, tens of thousands of new users come to Bitcoin.org to learn how to get started using the currency and technology. The site has grown exponentially in popularity as Bitcoin adoption has increased. Last year alone, there were over 30 million visitors to Bitcoin.org. These visitors viewed the site’s pages over 200 million times. Many of these pages are often the first results on search engines for bitcoin-related phrases and terms.”
Bitcoin.org is funded exclusively by donations from the community, and a huge debt of gratitude is owed. Without community donations, the current redesign work would not have been possible. More enhancements and special projects are on the horizon, so stay tuned. The support from donations that allow Bitcoin.org to compete with sites that aren’t community supported, are greatly appreciated.
Bitcoin.org was originally registered and owned by Satoshi Nakamoto and Martti Malmi. When Satoshi left the project, he gave ownership of the domain to additional people, separate from the Bitcoin developers, to spread responsibility and prevent any one person or group from easily gaining control over the Bitcoin project. Since then, the site has been developed and maintained by different members of the Bitcoin community.
