Lawnmower was just acquired — what does this mean for my Lawnmower account & Lawnmower as a whole?

We recently announced that Lawnmower was acquired by CoinDesk, and that much of Lawnmower’s content and tech is to be used in the next iterations of CoinDesk’s products.

As a Lawnmower user, you may be wondering more specifically — “What’s going to happen to my holdings and the app?”

First and foremost, your holdings and your account are completely unaffected.

Your bitcoin wallet, ether wallet, and payment method all exist and can be accessed through your Coinbase account — on both their web and mobile app products.

You will be able to access your Lawnmower account through our apps as well for as long as the Lawnmower apps or our investment functionality is maintained (which will likely be re-purposed or phased out). Please feel free to discontinue use (especially for investment purposes) at any time.

In the acquisition, CoinDesk purchased Lawnmower assets including our research content, code base, data methodologies, and other information that will be merged into CoinDesk’s products (or simply re-branded) over time.

As a thank you to all of our loyal users, we’re making the Lawnmower Pro Tier free for all users! We’ll be pushing an update in the next few weeks where you’ll be able to enjoy all of the Lawnmower Pro features.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to

We greatly appreciate every app download, review, blog post read, analytics report studied, and all of the various forms of support and feedback we received while creating and growing Lawnmower.
