Bitcoins may be purchased through the site using SMS / mobile. Purchases are limited in frequency and amount.

The site's availability status and service history is monitored using PingDom.

The site was launched on August 30, 2011[1], originally as the PiUK-BlockChain-Browser. It is maintained by Ben Reeves and was built with the intended purpose of recording double spend attacks and various currency statistics.

On March 26, 2012 the Blockchain for Android mobile app was released[2]. On April 20, 2012 the Blockchain ios app for the Apple iPhone, iPod touch and iPad was released globally on the App Store[3].

Mobile Apps

Security

Users of the Blockchain mobile app may wish to add the second password capability (configured through Account Details -> Security) so that bitcoins cannot be spent without the additional password.
