进入2017年以来,比特币价格飞速上涨,日前以达到3000美元,这也是Google 和 Richard Branson 之所以要投资 Blockchain的原因之一。

Blockchain还运营着一款热门的比特币搜索器Blockchain.info,该网站每月拥有1亿的访问量,由此带来的广告收入也是公司的资金来源之一。

Blockchain成立于2011年, 公司产品主要为一款存储数字货币的比特币钱包,用户可以通过PC端或者移动端登陆系统,并进行存款或转账。2014年,Blockchain获得了3000万美元的A轮融资,当时的注册用户人数为230万。目前,Blockchain 拥有近 1500 万注册用户,遍及全球140个国家,每月的存款和交易总额达数十亿美元。

London-based fintech startup Blockchain announced on Thursday it has secured $40 million during its Series B funding round, which was led by Lakestar and GV (formerly Google Ventures). The company claims to be the world’s leading software platform for digital assets. It offers a large production blockchain platform and it is using new technology to build a better financial system. It was revealed:

“At Blockchain, we strive to make digital currency safe and easy for everyone to use. Part of that goal is providing effective miners’ fee recommendations for every transaction our users make. Bitcoin has recently reached its peak capacity, with a consistent queue of tens of megabytes of transactions waiting to be confirmed.”

Peter Smith, CEO and co-founder of Blockchain, shared details about the Series B funding round:
