I would be much better for you to use Multibit or Electrum. Do not risk your coins being held by a third party. The reason why we all went to bitcoin is to have total control of our money. Why would you need to sacrifice that by needing to trust Blockchain.info? Bitcoin was designed to be trustless so do not put yourself in a position that would need for you to trust anyone.

Its really difficult to believe after all these years people still use online wallets to keep their coins which is absolutely the most unsafe approach to hold your coins. I don't know about blockchain.info website as I don't use them but be careful with them. No one is safe when keeping his coins in an online wallet which can always be hacked. I hope this is not the case though. Better to move on to desktop wallets.

Bitcoin is not completely trustless but it does remove banks

and can be sent amywhere u can get the net, many backups

of the blockchain have also been made so if the trust aspect

does get abused their is an extremely high chance it will

get caught out n rolled back

I have an account there with a very small amount, and so far there is nothing wrong on my side. Just contact them and have it sorted out.

There is nothing in my side as well, Sent few bitcents earlier in the day and everything in the website looks normal, The homepage and the new blocks etc... are working normally too, Perhaps it's something related to your browser rather than blockchain?. also from when did you start having this issue?

You got that right captain!
BTW,All of my earning are stored on the paper.I use blockchain as a hot wallet(because of there mobile app).

Nope,it wasn't just me.My friends were facing the same problem.
Now it's working properly.Probably it was down for maintenance.

Educate yourself. Blockchain.info doesn't hold any user coins. They have no control over private keys of their users' accounts. All important data is client side encrypted. You can print out all your private keys and import them into a Core wallet or whatever if their free service ceases to exist some day or if you just don't want to use it any longer.

I just googled more about it's security and it turns out that blockchian.info is the most secure E-wallet(unless your computer is infected)

Online wallets are good because it's easy however you can't let there a lot of money, just few satoshis. Trust no one.

Well, if one day blockchain.info goes offline, the bitcoin world will be in shock, there's a lot of money stocked there.

You can follow blockchain.info on twitter, they always tweet something related to problems.

No, they currently use different systems when you want to login you need to enter the wallet identification and confirmation of incoming links to your email.

as long you backed up your privkey there's nothing to be worried about,you just need to import the privkey and everything will be done,but what I worried that people are too lazy to backup their privkey and will endup losing whenever the blockchain.info goes offline but it seems that blockchain.info not going offline

yeah you can,using custom transaction so you could add as receiver's address as much as you can in bulk,but keep in mind to set the fees higher than average because the transaction will probably have larger size than usual or make sure to use the current fees/kb and calculate it

Using online wallet is just not smart, they soon or later disappear or get hacked, I think its not good to put amounts on such wallets.
Maybe some small amounts are possible but you should never do this with higher amounts.

Yes, I am aware that fee will be higher than normal, but it still should be considerably lower than sending every single transaction one after another.

Thanks everyone for answering to my question!

I use blockchain wallet from long time and definitely I trust it, but after many big sites have been hacked, everyone should be worried about his wallet, although blockchain has millions of users and high security level, but everything might happen, so you can backup your wallet .
