FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LEADING VPN PROVIDER ACQUIRES BITCOIN BLOCKEXPLORER

DENVER AND BERLIN — London Trust Media Holdings, provider of the leading VPN service Private Internet Access, has acquired the bitcoin reference site BlockExplorer. The ambition is to develop the site into a bigger outlet for market and economy data for the new financial world, with the vision of enabling a new generation of cryptocurrency users.

“Our company vision has always been about privacy and sovereignty, and as such, the addition of BlockExplorer fits well with how we want to shape the future”, says Rick Falkvinge, current Head of Privacy at Private Internet Access and newly appointed CEO of BlockExplorer. “We think of ourselves as financially sustainable privacy activists, and the concept of financial sovereignty goes hand in hand with our previous work for civil liberties.”

BlockExplorer has long been a reliable reference site in the Bitcoin community, and is used by many if not most next-generation financial services to look up details of transactions on the bitcoin network. Now, cryptocurrency enthusiasts can keep up market data and news on the site, for multiple cryptocurrencies.

“We will continue to make BlockExplorer an even greater site for the people”, says Caleb Chen, newly appointed Editor-in-Chief of the larger and improved BlockExplorer site. “We are up against trillions of dollars of the old money, and intend to beat them. It’s exciting to be part of this amazing movement. BlockExplorer has long served the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency community with market leading insight. We are committed to rolling out the next generation of cryptocurrency market data.”
