Ether is Now Available on iOS & Android

A few months ago, we added ether to the Blockchain wallet. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re extending that functionality to our mobile apps. As of today, users can seamlessly store, send, and receive ether on both iOS and Android.

As part of our mission to make digital assets increasingly user-friendly and accessible, we kept the mobile user experience for both currencies consistent and easy to navigate. With this update, users will notice the following two exciting changes:

  1. With a simple tap users can navigate between ether and bitcoin to monitor transactions, send funds, or request payment; and
  2. We’re rolling out a new dashboard that will allow users to monitor the market price for both currencies.

As always, users can find the latest mobile versions at our App Store and Google Play Store links.

Our team is excited to announce that iOS users in Europe are now able to buy bitcoin from within their Blockchain wallets using the same seamless and user friendly Blockchain-Coinify integration available to web users.
