Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we have a lot to be grateful for. Earlier this year, we successfully released the third version of our flagship wallet product. Earlier this month we announced a new partnership with Coinify, which is the first step in our effort to make our wallet infinitely more user friendly and, ultimately, more accessible for the mass market. And earlier this week we hit our 10 millionth wallet.
Hitting this milestone at this particular moment isn’t a coincidence. Bitcoin has become a safe haven in the face of geopolitical events like the Brexit vote, the US Presidential election and a weakening Yuan; we’ve seen unprecedented levels of activity and transactions on our platform as a result. Beyond using bitcoin to protect against geopolitical risk, people across the globe are utilizing digital financial products, like ours, to transact and save their way to a better economic future. For them, bitcoin can and has changed lives.
Bitcoin hasn’t yet replaced the established financial system, and we have a long way to go before the general public forsakes banks, cash or credit cards in favor of cryptocurrency. But we are seeing record levels of activity across our platform, which signals that people are embracing the need for a more globally accessible financial system, and one that does not exclude over one-third of the world’s population. While there’s still a lot to do, we can’t help but pause this week to give thanks for the millions of users who are helping us build an open, fair and accessible financial future. We are excited and honored to be on this path with you all.
