BitcoinX Helps Pick a Wallet & Exchange

Bitcoin.com is excited to announce its acquisition of BitcoinX, which has the largest database of Bitcoin exchanges and Bitcoin wallets on the market. With this acquisition, visitors to Bitcoin.com will not only have access to the latest information on every exchange and wallet, but will also be able to rate and review these key service providers of the Bitcoin network.

bitcoinxAs the world’s first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has the most developed infrastructure among any other coin as hundreds of new exchanges and wallets are constantly being unveiled to the public. However, keeping up with them and figuring out which one is right for you can be a daunting task with so many options and not knowing where to start.

Fortunately, BitcoinX provides this data in an easy to understand format, which gives the power to the end-user for peer reviews that helps people pick a platform that’s perfect for them. Businesses can build their reputation through customer experience and feedback, and with the acquisition it will help take this to the next level so that consumers can have access to all of the most up-to-date information on exchanges and wallets.

BitcoinX founder David Shares, who is a writer and developer contributing to several Bitcoin projects, explained:

When I launched BitcoinX in early 2014, it was shortly after the Mt.Gox debacle. I knew that Bitcoin needed a reputation system for bitcoin exchanges where people wouldn’t have to search out reviews all over the internet to find information.

“If only there was a repository of exchanges where anyone in the Bitcoin community could come and rate and review the exchange, maybe in the future it would help people avoid using those services that had really bad customer experiences so others could learn from it and make better and more informed decisions. At that point, BitcoinX was born, where I later added Bitcoin wallets and other community tools,” added Shares. 

Bitcoin.com Keeps Growing

Bitcoin.com has been growing extremely quickly with the leadership of angel investor and entrepreneur Roger Ver. In the recent months, Bitcoin.com has grown impressively and now offers news, forums, educational resources, and so much more. Roger Ver added: 

“The fact that Bitcoin.com is being run as a profitable business means that in the long run it will be much more influential in the ecosystem than other non-profit competitors.We are proud to have the Bitcoinx.io team join us in that goal.”

Looking ahead as we start to transition BitcoinX over to Bitcoin.com, you will begin to see changes on both platforms in the near future with ambitious goals for growth as we continue to provide helpful resources to the Bitcoin community. Businesses looking to get in touch regarding their exchange or wallet listing should get in touch with Bitcoin.com directly.
