Blockchain.com’s 2021 Wrapped Up

It’s time to reflect on a year marked by new all-time highs, the NFT explosion, and a profound appreciation for YOU–the people ushering in the new era of crypto.

In the same way your favorite music player might “wrap” your personal tastes and listening trends into a tight summary, here’s your 2021 “wrapped up” Blockchain.com style.

Your Private Key Wallet Wrapped Up

Just kidding.

We can’t access your Blockchain.com Private Key Wallet.

As always, holding your funds in your Blockchain.com Private Key Wallet offers you complete and total control over your crypto. Just as Satoshi intended.

But how did the Wallet change in 2021?

The Wallet Wrapped Up

With millions of new users creating new accounts in 2021, we worked nonstop to make more assets available, including the addition of ERC-20 support.

Since we made swapping cryptos inside your Wallet easier than ever before, we saw many popular pairs emerge. Notice any trends?

Whatever you were using your Blockchain.com Wallet for, it was certainly keeping the network busy.

In 2021, on-chain Bitcoin volume from Blockchain.com topped $378 billion.


The Exchange Wrapped Up

The Exchange got its fair share of new asset listings from DESO to EFI to SUSHI and DOT. In all, you got access to 18 new assets in 2021.

Interestingly, our top performing pairs on the Exchange differed from those seen in the Wallet.

Crypto Culture Wrapped

Collins English Dictionary selected NFT as its Word Of The Year in 2021.

Who’s shocked? Not you.

You’ve sat through months of your friends and family asking the same questions: “So, what is an NFT? How does a JPEG actually have value? Can’t I just take a screenshot of one and ‘own’ it?”

You’ve crafted your response and nailed the delivery.

So, it’s not surprising that Collins Dictionary’s word of the year is NFT.

Even popular music streaming services have incorporated it into their End of Year content. Weird…

A Look At Your Crypto Energy

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking auras: crypto auras.

Your trading, HODLing, sending, earning habits tell a lot about you. Clearly we all have big crypto energy, but where do you fall within that? (Be honest!)

That’s A Wrap

2021 was a year for the books.

You took your crypto game to the next level, and we loved helping you along the way.

Only time will tell what holds for 2022. We’ll see you again this time next year!
