Trusted & Secure

BTCS is a first mover in the revenue-generating, full node deployment space. With an asset treasury strategy as the foundation of our business model, we power the top-performing Layer 1 protocols like Avalanche and Ethereum which are the foundation for NFTs and other disruptive technologies.

About Us

Nasdaq-listed BTCS as early entrants in the crypto market built its current foundation by utilizing a digital asset treasury strategy dating back to early 2017. BTCS was also one of the first U.S. publicly traded companies to focus on blockchain technology infrastructure. Through its infrastructure operations, BTCS secures disruptive blockchains by actively processing and validating network transactions, and is rewarded with digital assets.

Building on that foundation, BTCS is developing the BTCS Data Analytics Dashboard which allows users to evaluate their crypto portfolio from across multiple exchanges with plans to eventually add year-end reports and asset leveraging.
