Bitcoin marketplace Brawker to shut down

Announcements | April 16, 2015 By:

On Tuesday, April 14, Brawker revealed that the company’s growth has been below expectations, which is the prime motivation for the complete closure of services.

“We did not meet our objectives, and the general idea behind the project is not as effective as it was 18 months ago. Buying bitcoin with credit cards is now possible, and more and more merchants are accepting digital currencies,” said Brawker CTO Gabriel Majoulet.

Majoulet confirmed that user transactions would be completed before the service went offline. Brawker is no longer accepting new orders, he added.

Brawker is a bitcoin buying service provider.
