Announcements | November 30, 2016 By:

Blockchain has announced that the company has surpassed ten million bitcoin wallets. The company claims that it is the first wallet provider to reach this milestone and it now holds over 50 percent of the bitcoin wallet market.

“Hitting this milestone at this particular moment isn’t a coincidence … In the wake of the brexit vote, the US Presidential election and a weakening Yuan, we have seen unprecedented levels of activity and transaction on our platform, which further suggests that people are embracing the need for a more globally accessible currency system, and one that does not exclude over one-third of the world’s population. We are excited to play such an important role in powering the world’s shift to a more open, fair and accessible financial system,” said Blockchain Chief Executive and founder Peter Smith.

Blockchain describes its goal as to dramatically accelerate the re-engineering and modernization of the global financial system by onboarding millions of individuals across the globe into open P2P transaction networks over the coming years.

Blockchain is a UK-based bitcoin wallet provider.
