Global interest in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency has been steadily increasing since it’s introduction in 2009. Statistics indicate that there are 310,996 Bitcoin transactions per day. Some can find it challenging to learn enough about Bitcoin to comfortably explore the world of cryptocurrency. There are many online cryptocurrency resources available yet few strong, central locations of collected, helpful information specific to the interests of the Bitcoin fanbase. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday we’ll introduce you to an informational member of the .xyz community who grew a significant following around the rising interest in Bitcoin: Bitcoin.xyz.
Bitcoin.xyz is a Canada-based online information hub all about the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. As shared on their Facebook page, their mission is “to bring Bitcoin to billions of people worldwide. We are doing this by providing news, information and access to multiple Bitcoin services and features through our portal as well as offering education and insights to our users.” An example of the information they provide is a comprehensive directory of where to buy Bitcoin in exchange for other currencies, found at their Exchanges link. They also offer helpful tools, such as:
As home to a growing community of forward-thinking innovators, including various decentralized finance platforms and blockchain technology, .xyz was a great choice for Bitcoin.xyz to develop their online presence. As they told us, “The .xyz extension can be used for anything, hence the xyz…. which makes it more valuable than any other extension available. With Alphabet giving more brand awareness to the .xyz domain space it was just natural that growing companies also start building on this awesome extension. We chose to do so because we love .xyz and found the extension to be the perfect fit for our site home address. A general site about Bitcoin with many services needed a general extension domain.”
One of Bitcoin.xyz’s helpful tools is the Statistics page, which is linked on the Tools menu. This page provides real-time, up-to-the-minute statistics, data, and exchange rates within all international markets, peer-to-peer brokerage breakdowns, latest blockchain information, transaction set-up, and user-friendly price converters for investors and sellers. Headlining the page is the current Bitcoin live price, which changes regularly. At the time of this post, the value of one Bitcoin to the US dollar was $31,683.13. This page also displays the all-time high (ATH) price of Bitcoin ($64,805), and even the date of that high (April 14, 2021).
Since Bitcoin.xyz’s launch in 2016, the platform has become very popular with a sizable social media following. They’re most active on Facebook, where they have 274K followers, and on Twitter, where they have nearly 20K followers. Bitcoin.xyz’s posts include general information and updates pertaining to Bitcoin, such as news that the currency is now being recognized as legal tender in El Salvador. They have secured @Bitcoin.xyz on Facebook and can easily cross promote with their short, memorable .xyz domain name as their handle name. They acquired @Bitcoinxyz on Instagram and LinkedIn, and @Bitcoin_xyz on Twitter. These handles also make Bitcoin.xyz easy to find, and promote their website URL right in their social media handle.
.XYZ seems to be an easy choice for those interested in the growing cryptocurrency industry. We are inspired by Bitcoin.xyz‘s development of an informational online hub for all things Bitcoin, and we are excited to see their community grow.
