The Bitcoin.fr site was launched on December 23, 2010 and is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The first online version featured a brief overview of BTC
The Bitcoin.fr site was born on December 23, 2010, a little less than a year after the launch of Bitcoin (BTC) by Satoshi Nakamato.
The founder explains that he stumbled across Crypto Engine by chance through a developer friend who discovered the concept on linuxfr.org.
This same friend shared with him a news about the revelations of the telegrams of American diplomacy by Julian Assange who was making the headlines at the time.
The founder goes back to the beginnings of the site:
“It’s pure luck. I then managed other blogs (associative / professional). When I saw at the end of 2010 that the domain name bitcoin.fr was still available, I did not hesitate. I immediately sensed that there was something completely new and terribly powerful… I did not however push my foresight to buy bitcoins… at 0.15 € uro BTC… what a mistake! “
Today, the Bitcoin.fr community is also strong with 13,300 YouTube subscribers and over 16,000 Twitter followers .
