In the middle of last year, over 25 million online wallets were registered with Blockchain.com (formerly Blockchain.info). It was a record mark, reaffirming the right of the leader of the service. In this article we will briefly examine the possibilities of the wallet, and we will hold a small retrospective of its creation.
Service launched in August 2011. It was the first such service in the then very young and undeveloped market. Two years later, the company was already bought out - ZeroBlock LLC, the developer of a mobile application for working with Bitcoin, became the new owner. In the same year, Blockchain.info became the most visited site on the subject of crypto. His record is more than 118 million views and 3 million unique visitors per month.
In 2014, the service broke another record - the company received $ 30.5 million in funding. This was the largest at the time of attracting funding among the cryptocurrency.
In early 2015, the service registered 3 million users. In August 2016, the number of transactions through the Blockchain.info service exceeded 100 million. A year later, blockchain info attracted another $ 40 million of investments. And in mid-2018, the number of online wallets created exceeded 25 million.
