, the world’s leading provider of digital currency and distributed ledger software, announced today that the company has surpassed ten million wallets. As the first wallet-provider to reach this milestone, this news further solidifies Blockchain’s standing as an industry leader, with over 50 percent of market share.
“Hitting this milestone at this particular moment isn’t a coincidence,” stated Peter Smith, Blockchain CEO and Co-Founder. “In the wake of the brexit vote, the US Presidential election and a weakening Yuan, we have seen unprecedented levels of activity and transaction on our platform, which further suggests that people are embracing the need for a more globally accessible currency system, and one that does not exclude over one-third of the world’s population. We are excited to play such an important role in powering the world’s shift to a more open, fair and accessible financial system.”
Blockchain aims to dramatically accelerate the re-engineering and modernization of the global financial system by onboarding millions of individuals across the globe into open P2P transaction networks over the coming years. In order to realize that vision, Blockchain is focused on building a series of localized onramps into its wallet that will make the acquisition of digital cash fast, easy and inexpensive for both banked and unbanked consumers across the globe. Most recently, the company announced a partnership with Coinify to accelerate the adoption of digital currencies by making them more easily accessible.
