This is one of THE most widely used Bitcoin wallets in the world.
They claim here over 18m wallets have been created or managed through Blockchain.info and they have broadcast over 100m transactions.
This means that what Blockchain.info does with their platform matters.
It matters because they are the wallet of choice for the average non-technical user and because of that, any technical change they make to their platform that the average user doesn’t understand, means Blockchain.info are essentially making that choice for them.
One of the main reasons people go to Blockchain is because they want a simple user experience that hides a lot of the complexity.
The flip side to that however is that their 18m users may not fully understand the implications of what Blockchain.info decide to do.
