The number of web wallet users on popular bitcoin site Blockchain.info continues to climb. According to Blockchain.info (who made this reddit post), over 1.5 million “My Wallet” accounts have established.
Chart data on the Blockchain.info site shows just under 1.5 million, but it has not yet been updated.
If you recall in late October, Blockchain announced that 500,000 wallets had been created. Fast forward to January of 2014, and it was announced that a whopping one million wallets had been created.
Recently, online bitcoin brokerage Coinbase surpassed one million wallets in late February. As of this week, the service has about 1.1 million wallets created, according to their ‘About‘ page.
For many, Blockchain.info is the first step in becoming acclimated to the bitcoin space. From the easy-to-use wallet to detailed chart information, and yes, the bitcoin community’s favorite blockchain explorer.
The growth shows that interest in bitcoin continues to grow. Many see promise in this digital currency, others see a lucrative opportunity.
Either way, Blockchain.info has been making it easy for newcomers, and I personally appreciate all the work they’ve done.
