One of the most important and known sites in the cryptocurrency world, Blockchain.info is now moving domains. For some cryptocurrency enthusiasts, Blockchain.Info was the first site visited where to learn about Bitcoin and virtual currencies in general.
Blockchain.Info Moves To Blockchain.com
The website released a notice on its blog that says that it will be consolidating all the pages on blockchain.info under the blockchain.com domain. The main intention behind this change is to allow users to have all the crypto needs in just one place, and not in two.
According to Alexa, the site ranks in the top 1,000 global websites and it is Located in Luxembourg. The company took off in Summer of 2011 and is widely known by the community as the block explorer by excellence. Additionally, the site has its own Android mobile application.
In addition to it, between 2013 and 2014, Info was the most bitcoin visited site in the world, reaching an astonishing 120 million views. Furthermore, it was the first to reach one million wallet downloads.
The company explains:
“We’re the world’s leading crypto wallet where 25 million users invest in and store Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). We also allow users to analyze the top cryptocurrencies via our markets page and are continually expanding our widely used APO services to make it even easier for developers to build on top of the blockchain.”
In 2017, Info snapped up $40 million in venture dough, and partnered with Unocoin so as to bring crypto awareness to India. And another important milestone was the fact that they allow people from half of the US states to buy and sell cryptocurrencies.
The team remains intact, though. Nicolas Cary has been a business leader in the space, trying to marry commerce and philanthropy. The company says that they will be providing a seamless transition to the dot-com site. Moreover, they are very optimistic about the future, saying that they ‘have a lot more to do in building the future of finance.”
