Twitter users wondered why the CEO of Blockchain was so excited. Today, the answer is crystal clear. Blockchain has been able to get a five year deal to manage the domain name Bitcoin.com exclusively.
Blockchain Strikes Big
According to a blog post, Blockchain is trying to build a widely known presence in the Bitcoin realm and community. The website is trying to build relationships to increase cryptocurrency knowledge, understanding, and usage. Having Blockchain manage the Bitcoin.com domain is another step to promote Bitcoin awareness. As stated in the blogpost, Blockchain’s mission is to
“Provide the tools and services that build on Bitcoin’s core strengths.”
Blockchain admins are very happy to be part of an exclusive deal with the bitcoin.com domain. They are looking forward to creating new learning skills and introducing new users to Bitcoin.
“Finally, Blockchain.info understands that it’s important to drive this education today so that tomorrow the whole community can benefit from the next generation of world class Bitcoin infrastructure and applications.”
Another way the website has spread awareness of Bitcoin is when it released a merchant app on the Google Play Store last month. The merchant app allows an easy and simply way for businesses and markets to accept Bitcoin.
What is Blockchain?
Blockchain is notably one of the most popular Bitcoin websites around the world. It is one of the many websites people use to store their bitcoins and to verify transactions that have occurred on the Bitcoin block chain.
According to the blogpost, Blockchain.info has millions of monthly visitors from different countries and has the most traffic out of all the Bitcoin websites. As of April 14th, the its web-wallet has 1.5 million wallets which has made the website the most popular online Bitcoin wallet service. Using API services, Blockchain “facilitates the Bitcoin ecosystem.”
Having a Bitcoin.com website will allow Blockchain to spread Bitcoin awareness to a wider audience.
