This week Bitcoin.com reached a milestone of a whopping 2.5 million Bitcoin.com Wallets created in less than a year. Since we started our web portal we’ve focused on providing people with world-class resources that fit every bitcoiner’s needs and our simple-to-use wallet is no different.
The 2.5 Million Milestone is the First Step Towards Our Goal to Provide a World-Class Cryptocurrency Wallet to Billions of People
The Bitcoin.com Wallet was launched on August 25, 2017, just a few weeks after the Bitcoin blockchain split that took place on August 1. Since then our light client that supports both Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Core (BTC) has become very popular and the amount of wallets created in so little time has been thrilling to watch. We think that the popularity of our wallet is due to the fact it is so easy to use, and you can send bitcoin wherever you are in the world. Not only that but our lightning fast wallet is safe and secure while at the same time allowing individuals to hold their private keys in a non-custodial fashion.
Further, the Bitcoin.com Wallet comes with a myriad of features that allow individuals to do more than just send and receive cryptocurrencies. The Bitcoin.com Wallet is also tethered to our first class blockchain explorer so you can verify all of your transactions. Moreover, we provide real-time charts, and a portal where you can purchase bitcoins effortlessly. Our client also enables users to create shared wallets that utilize the innovation of multi-signature technology. Meanwhile, Bitcoin.com’s wallet provides a shapeshifting feature where users can swap between BCH and BTC effortlessly by utilizing the popular Shapeshift API.
Bitcoin.com’s wallet product manager, Alfonso Rocha, was pumped to see how popular the client has become and he believes 2.5 million wallets created in eleven months is a landmark occasion.
“We are so pleased that 2.5 million wallets have been created. It just shows how many people find our wallet useful and proves that it’s the best place to use and store their bitcoin cash — People trust us,” Rocha detailed.
We are also continuously working every day to make sure we have the best wallet out there. The quality of what we produce is as important to us as it is to our customers.
