Our beta wallet offers a secure way to store your digital currency. We have nearly completed the development of our secure bitcoin storage solution, built on Gem's technology. Our multi-signature solution secures every transaction with three keys and every transaction requires valid signatures from at least two keys:
          1. BTCS cosigning key
          2. Primary key
          3. Offline backup key

BTCS Digital Currency Mining

We're rapidly scaling our low cost bitcoin mining efforts and believe this will provide revenue growth as we build our ecosystem. We've secured an 83,000 square foot facility, about 1.4 times the size of a regulation NFL football field, to expand our mining operations. With minimal improvements, the new facility is anticipated to handle over 10 megawatts (mw) of power and can potentially house up to 40,000 TH/s of mining hardware.


We are acquiring Bitcoin miners for our NC facility, if you have larger quantities (50TH or more) of any of the miners listed below, use the SUPPORT button at the top of the page and send us a list of your equipment.

Miners accepted:
          AntMiner S4
          AntMiner S5
          TerraMiner IV
          Spondooliestech SP10 Dawson
          Spondooliestech SP20 Jackson
          Spondooliestech SP30 Yukon
