Google Ventures-Backed Bitcoin Exchange Buttercoin Is Shutting Down

Buttercoin, a bitcoin exchange startup backed by Y Combinator and Google Ventures, is closing its doors at the end of this month after failing to raise new investment.

“Buttercoin will be turning off our service on April 10th at 11PM Pacific,” the company said in a note on its website. “Be sure to move your bitcoins to another service and remove your dollar balances by Friday April 10th at 11PM.”

Any unclaimed funds will be returned to the accounts that they came from, the company added.

Unlike other bitcoin shutdowns, which are often triggered by hacks and result in customers losing money, Buttercoin is solvent and will provide users with their balance in full. The startup said it is winding down because it wasn’t able to raise new funding — that’s something it attributes to a “dip in bitcoin interest among Silicon Valley investors.”
