One of the world's largest cryptocurrency wallets Blockchain.info launched a service for the sale and purchase of digital assets in the United States. While users have the opportunity only to sell bitcoins; the purchase option will be available later. This is reported by CNBC.

For customers of Blockchain.info from the UK similar services have been available for some time. The company's executive director Peter Smith said that the initial limited functionality in the US is due to the desire to avoid unforeseen problems when starting the service.
If we are prioritizing short-term gains, we would prioritize buy — that is what most people have done. But it's really time to make sure we nail that experience.

In the past, many users from the US complained of problems when working with various sites, including when withdrawing money. According to Smith, 22 million users are registered with Blockchain.info, while a million people use the service every day. At the same time, 30% to 40% of them live in the US.
Smith also added that "in a few weeks" Blockchain.info will be able to buy and sell other cryptocurrencies, not just bitcoin
