We’re working to make money better—for everyone.

Whether it’s your paycheck, pension, or piggybank savings, money matters to us all. So, rather than relying on banks—with their fees, delays, and fraud risk—we stand for money without limits. That’s why we support Bitcoin Cash, a global digital currency that only you can control.

What we’re doing about it

What we’re doing about it

Our products make both Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Core more accessible. You can buy, use, and store Bitcoin securely, monitor market prices and news, and even earn Bitcoin through mining. We also help businesses accept Bitcoin payments and support developers building on Bitcoin.

A global team of talent

We’re based here, there, and everywhere.

Bitcoin’s creator releases a whitepaper to a cryptography mailing list. It outlines the revolutionary design of a decentralized digital currency that’s immune to fraud: Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is brought to life when the very first block is mined. Its coinbase contains a message: "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks."
