We’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with Blockchain, a leading provider of cryptocurrency products and creator of the world’s most popular crypto wallet, to bring Blockstack apps that Can’t Be Evil to over 40 million Blockchain Wallets.

As part of the partnership, Blockchain will integrate Blockstack’s native Stacks token (STX) into Blockchain’s full suite of products for retail and institutional users including the Blockchain Wallet and Blockchain Explorer. Additionally, our goal is to educate users about Web 3 apps and their privacy and security benefits. As part of the partnership and to introduce users to apps built on Blockstack, Blockchain plans to begin airdropping Stacks later this quarter to a set of users who have opted into the program in eligible geographies.

Blockchain users seek education on the best projects in the space so this partnership will not only allow them to learn about the Blockstack network, but will also make it easy for them to interact with easy to use Blockstack applications.

“Blockstack has methodically built an impressive network for the future of decentralized finance, applications, and identity,” says Peter Smith, Co-founder and CEO of Blockchain. “We look forward to not only expanding the number of Stacks token holders, but also handing them the keys to a variety of apps that put the sanctity of their data first.”’s mission to rebuild modern finance around ease of use, trust, and transparency aligns with Blockstack’s mission to bring fundamental digital rights to all internet users and we’re thrilled to be partnered in such a way that brings new utility to both user bases.

“Blockchain has solidified its role as critical infrastructure for people who want to use crypto and engage in a new economy that works for users, not against them,” says Muneeb Ali, Co-founder and CEO of Blockstack. “We look forward to working with the team to bring new faces into our ecosystem, and continue to empower the decentralized applications of the future.”
