The world’s oldest cryptocurrency platform, Blockchain.com has announced the launch of crypto trading for more than ten million residents of the US state of Georgia.
The move marks another step in the company’s drive to expand crypto access to users across the whole of the United States. Upon activation, Georgia user sign-ups spiked more than 500%, demonstrating high demand for crypto trading within the Peach State.
This news follows recent product launches across Michigan, Oklahoma, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota all within the past month. Additionally, within the last year, Blockchain.com has expanded to Florida, Alaska, Delaware, Illinois, Oregon, New Hampshire, and New Mexico.
The crypto platform is now available in more than 30 states and is actively working through individual license approvals to bring product availability to all U.S. residents.
Crypto trading on Blockchain.com is engineered to enable greater financial freedom and earning potential for Georgia residents. Additionally, the remote-first company is helping to create new jobs through fresh roles across sales, customer success, people operations, legal, engineering, finance, operations, and more.
Brooks Wallace, Blockchain.com Head of Communications, said the firm was “thrilled to enter a state that matches our excitement about the future of crypto.”
“Just this year the Georgia House of Representatives approved a high school financial literacy program that includes crypto. As more Georgia residents seek out resources to buy and sell crypto, we look forward to offering them a platform built on accessibility and trust. We also welcome crypto enthusiasts from the Peach State to explore our job offerings for many open remote roles,” Wallace added.
With a $5.2B valuation and more than $1.5B in 2021 YTD revenue, Blockchain.com is at an inflection point in its growth. The company is home to a growing Institutional Markets business.
With more than 37 million verified accounts and 77M wallets across more than 200 countries, Blockchain.com allows users to monitor, buy, sell, trade, and store crypto using a non-custodial Wallet, lightning fast Exchange, and renowned blockchain Explorer.
