What does Blockchain do?
Led by engineers and product people, Blockchain is focused on designing, building, testing, and shipping great products that delight our users. We have three core products:
- Block Explorer - Our first and original app is still the world’s most popular bitcoin website of all time. The explorer allows anyone in the world a quick and reliable way to check the status of any transaction. The site data is regularly used by Reuters, Bloomberg, and many others to report on the status of the digital currency ecosystem. Think Bloomberg meets Google for Digital Currency.
- Wallets - We offer the world’s most widely used wallet for digital currencies. We build iOS, Android and web wallets for millions of crypto enthusiasts. Our wallets make it simple and easy for anyone in the world to securely send, receive, and manage their bitcoin, bitcoin cash, and ether. Our wallet is a software wallet that provides infrastructure to empower our users to be their own bank. We don’t hold users funds, or have access to them.
- Developer Platform - Blockchain provides the most built upon API in the ecosystem. Thousands of developers have used our APIs to build a huge array of products and decentralized applications.
But it doesn’t stop there. Our R&D efforts are responsible for pioneering advancements in block chain technology. Most recently, the team unveiled the first prototype of a revolutionary payment channel, called Thunder. The technology enables users and vendors to send and receive digital assets without touching the main block chain. Even in the prototype phase, Thunder has the potential to facilitate secure, trustless and nearly instant payments, unleash the power of microtransactions and allow the block chain networks to handle heavy loads, and increase user privacy.
