On April 14, 2014 around 11:00am EST, we reached 1.5 million wallets for our Bitcoin wallet service! We sent out a newsletter (also shared on our blog), announcing this, plus some other great things happening right now. We’re so happy to be able to provide a free service that has facilitated such enormous growth in the Bitcoin community. A major goal for our wallet service is to make it easy for anyone, computer-savvy or not, to send and receive Bitcoin payments; this is a goal we’re striving hard for and we would never have come this far without feedback from our users!
Here are just a few of the positive remarks from Bitcoiners we received yesterday on Twitter:
As you can see, this event is a milestone that we have come together as a Bitcoin community to achieve. We could not do this without our loyal Blockchain users, and the greater community of Bitcoin users. We’d like to send a thoughtful and heartfelt Thank You! to everyone for your congrats and appreciation of our services that we provide! We hope this is only a small glimpse of success in store for the future of Bitcoin.
