Blockchain.com, a block explorer service, crypto wallet provider, and digital asset trading platform, notes that if people think that the 2022 Winter Olympics had “thrilling” ups and downs, they should consider getting into crypto and blockchain.
During the coming weeks, Blockchain.com says it will be adding new assets to the wallet they provide. In order to celebrate their launching, the firm is offering $5 BTC for every five new assets that you purchase using your Blockchain.com Wallet (but this requires ID verification and can be really tedious and not really worth it).
This month, the Blockchain.com team also confirmed that they are supporting Cloud9, one of the most innovative eSports firms. Their goal is is “to help gamers and their fans access the future of finance.”
Just as Blockchain.com “prides itself on being a steward” of the crypto space, they know Cloud9 “prides itself on playing a similar role in gaming.”
The Blockchain.com team says they are looking forward to working with Cloud9 so they can develop these new economies “both sustainably and responsibly.”
As noted in the update:
“On the road to recovery, the crypto markets have seen a strong start to February, as BTC wavered between $41,000 to $45,000 (but is now down to around $37,000 at time of writing).”
The firm’s Head of Research Garrick Hileman noted in their February Market Outlook report however that “there is some evidence that the frost that has set on crypto markets these past few months is abating.”
