Founded in 2014, Blockstream has been the leading provider of blockchain technologies and has remained on the forefront of work in cryptography and distributed systems.

Our Mission


Blockstream’s mission is to create the financial infrastructure of the future. We build crypto-financial infrastructure based on Bitcoin, the most robust and secure blockchain. Applying cutting-edge cryptography and security engineering, we’re building the technology that makes financial markets more efficient by reducing reliance on trust. With a long-term outlook on delivering robust and scalable solutions, we invest heavily in research and development to strengthen the Bitcoin ecosystem and protocol.


Peer-to-peer, open-network finance holds the promise to change the world for the benefit of all. Blockstream is proud to be making this a reality.

Core Values


Permissionless innovation.
The success of the internet in recent years is built on permissionless innovation -- nowhere is this kind of progress more important than in the financial industry.
Don’t trust. Verify.
We believe in empowering individuals and businesses to take control of their own finances and reducing the need for trusted third parties.
Open finance for everyone.
We build software that accelerates the adoption of Bitcoin and peer-to-peer finance for a fairer financial system that benefits everyone, not just a privileged few.
