Popular online wallet provider Blockchain.info today sent a tweet that notes that the service has had 70,000 new wallet registrations in the period of one week. If basic math isn’t your forte, that’s 10,000 new sign-ups per day, which is certainly a significant number.
Blockchain.info is known for their ease-of-use online wallets, and as such, has become quite reputable in the Bitcoin community. Not only that, Blockchain.info also serves as the de facto place to view Bitcoin transactions taking place around the world, which of course are public as per the Bitcoin protocol.
No doubt, the tremendous growth of Blockchain.info online wallets is attributed to increasing interest from the outside as individuals continue to see the ever-increasing price of Bitcoin. Is it a fad, or will the numbers continue to grow?
