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.
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.
We’re based here, there, and everywhere.
Prior to Bitcoin being introduced to the world, our domain is registered. We still don’t know who did this: perhaps it was Bitcoin’s pseudonymous creator, Satoshi Nakamoto!
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."
Having grasped Bitcoin’s potential for global economic freedom, Roger Ver becomes the new owner of the Bitcoin.com domain. He’s an entrepreneur and Bitcoin investor.
After some site development, Bitcoin.com publishes its first news article. This soon picks up pace as our domain becomes the beating heart of Bitcoin news.
As our company mission becomes clearer, the Bitcoin.com domain gets refreshed to reflect it. We set our sights on making Bitcoin accessible to everyone, everywhere.
We post one of our very first tweets from @BTCTN "Mainstream Medias Failure With Bitcoin Reporting & Journalism https://news.bitcoin.com/mainstream-medias-failure-with-bitcoin #Bitcoin
Helping to bring uncensored discussion to the Bitcoin space, we launch the Bitcoin.com forum. Here, anyone can join open community conversations about all-things-crypto.
To make it easy for people to purchase Bitcoin, we introduce the option to buy with a credit card instantly on our site. This is especially useful for new users in the space.
Bitcoin.com launches Bitcoin Games. One of the very first use cases of Bitcoin that Satoshi Nakamoto suggested was a currency for games. We are helping to continue that with our gaming portal.
In the spirit of decentralization, we open the official Bitcoin.com mining pool to the public. This lets people earn Bitcoin by securing the network, referred to as mining.
As we work towards making Bitcoin accessible for everyone, we launch our wallet app. It lets you send, receive, and store Bitcoin. Today, you can even buy Bitcoin Cash in-app!
Following the launch of Bitcoin Cash in August 2017, we add full support for this new coin in our wallet app. It now lets you manage both Bitcoin Core (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
In July 2018, Bitcoin.com launches developer.bitcoin.com, providing a gateway for developers to build on Bitcoin Cash. Today, Developer.bitcoin.com provides tools and guides, including Bitbox SDK, Simple Tokens (SLP) SDK, Badger SDK, and more.
To make it easier for businesses to accept Bitcoin Cash payments in-store, we release our Bitcoin Cash Register point-of-sale app. Customers simply scan and pay instantly! Available today for Android and iOS.
To support private trading, we launch Local.Bitcoin.com. This P2P marketplace lets you buy and sell Bitcoin Cash with anyone, anywhere—without sharing personal details. It uses a blind escrow meaning Bitcoin.com never touches any of the funds.
To bring us closer to our goal of economic freedom, we rethink our brand image. Our rebrand helps to instill user trust with the aim of advancing Bitcoin’s mass adoption.
