Blockchain.com began in 2011 as an open-source project operating out of a small apartment in York, northern England. Since then, the platform has grown into a global crypto company that has over 37 million users in over 200 countries, supports over 86 million wallets, and has transacted over $1 trillion.
While Blockchain.com now has employees and offices in over 20 countries across the world, the UK has been – and continues to be – an important historical hub for the company. As a key centre for talent and growth, most of their engineers are located in the UK, making it the heart of Blockchain’s global product innovation.
Encouraged by the UK government’s desire to become a global crypto hub –including by developing a permanent regulatory framework – Blockchain.com intends to further cement its roots in the UK, bolstering the company’s position both here and beyond.
