The company that developed the popular Bitcoin app ZeroBlock, which recently became available for Android devices, was acquired by the world’s most popular wallet,

The app, released this summer, has turned into one of the most popular mobile and web services for Bitcoiners, combining live crypto-data with news and updated charts. Dan Held, ZeroBlock’s developer, will join the Blockchain team as a product manager, Coindesk reported.

During this month, ZeroBlock turned into the most reviewed Bitcoin app on Apple’s App Store, as well as the one with the highest rate and more than 9,000 downloads.

According to Blockchain, the app will help the wallet service to fulfil its “very ambitious future goals in the Bitcoin space”.

Nicolas Cary, Blockchain’s CEO, praises the work developed by the team at ZeroBlock: “when I’m asked what’s the killer app for Bitcoin right now, I always recommend ZeroBlock. What Dan Held and Kevin Johnson have accomplished is truly remarkable. ZeroBlock has created an enduring design aesthetic that elegantly filters the signal from the noise in the Bitcoin ecosystem. I’m completely obsessed with it”.
