NEW YORK (InsideBitcoins) — A popular bitcoin wallet has doubled its user base in little more than six months. Blockchain has announced that it has surpassed two million wallets, the first company in the burgeoning industry to celebrate such a milestone.
The company reached one million wallet users in January of this year, but saw demand explode after the relaunch of its iOS wallet on the Apple App Store late last month. Blockchain says there were more than 41,000 downloads of the app within the first week of reinstatement.
“Not only is this milestone indicative of the public’s interest and belief in the importance of cryptocurrency, it’s also a testament to the quality, stability and usability that Blockchain’s wallet is able to provide to consumers at large,” says Blockchain CEO Nicolas Cary. “Now, with over two million users on our wallet, it’s reaching mass relevance.”
