Blockchain.info reports on sharp increase in number of new users after Donald Trump’s victory

Blockchain.info reported on an unusually high user activity, after the results of the US presidential elections had been announced.

ʺWe are seeing an increasing users’ activity. People are trying to insure themselves against risks of instability in the economy. It is risky to keep their savings in British pounds or US dollars, so people are looking for safe assets such as Bitcoin. Blomberg agency has already added this cryptocurrency to “a safe haven” list,ʺ Blockchain.info’s CEO Peter Smith said.

Peter Smith does not disclose exact data about users’ activity, only saying many millions of people will use company’s services during this month.

Also, he announced the launch of a new feature that will allow customers to buy and sell Bitcoins using their wallets. This feature has been developed in partnership with the Danish company Coinify and will be available to customers in the European Union and the United Kingdom before the end of November. In the United States and Latin America, it will be launched supposedly in the end of the first quarter of 2017.

It should be reminded that Blockchain.info added a feature of importing addresses from third party wallets. As a result, a user can see an overall balance of existing digital assets without having to log in each of these separately.
