UPDATE: All services are back.
Our app just recently hit the Google Play store, and is available to download for free! Our goal was to design an app that would make accepting Bitcoin simple and easy for any business owner. Simply download, install and open the app; set up your 4-digit PIN number; add your Bitcoin receiving address, name of your business and currency preference; turn push notifications on and then click save! You’re now ready to accept Bitcoin payments!
Over the past little while, a number of languages have been significantly updated by our volunteers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank:
- Colt Ma from Shanghai for the Chinese improvements
- Micaman for the Portuguese
- Soz Nov for Russian
- Wickex for Dutch
We are looking for more help on translations.
As you may already have seen on Reddit/r/Bitcoin, Blockchain’s Chief Security Officer Andreas has personally organized a fundraiser for Dorian Nakamoto. Dorian was the target of Newsweek’s recent alleged discovery of Satoshi Nakamoto (click here for the original article), inventor of the Bitcoin protocol.
Blockchain is fully supportive of this fundraising initiative and hopes these fundraising efforts are accepted by Dorian, as a way of compensation for bombardment by the media and invasion of his privacy. We are extremely proud to be part of such a generous and respectful community of individuals.
UPDATE: 2014/3/6 These issues have been resolved.
We are getting a constant stream of phishing attempts on our users. We have set up a security alert page, and will update this over time.
The Security Alerts page can be found by clicking on Support, then Security Alerts.

Do you think of yourself as a voluntarist, anarchist or libertarian? If you do, chances are you attended last week’s 2014 New Hampshire Liberty Forum in Nashua. Blockchain was proud to be the Rearden sponsor of the event this year, where nearly 500 people attended to mingle, learn more about freedom and why it is so important to ask questions.
To better service and communicate with our users, we have moved our blog site to a new domain (https://blog.blockchain.com). Together with the move, a number of features have been added:
