Blockchain.info... What is their business model? I just went through the site, scanned the twitter, and checked out the facebook page. There's no ads, no way to donate, they aren't selling anything... There's not even a mention of accepting money. Is this service just being run out of charity? What gives?

Unless I unwittingly installed adblock plus for internet explorer, I don't reckon there were any.

I am pretty sure when you click "Buy Bitcoin in 10 minutes or less" you are seeing paid adds.

I don't get any adds either, they could get money when people buy bitcoins via them?

That is only an ad for blockchain.info's own services. If you'll notice, there are fees involved for those services.

Still around.

Ah, so the fees go to them. I didn't notice the fees before. That makes a whole lot more sense. Thanks.

They also take fees for their mixer service I think.

Regardless, it still does make sense for them to just run a really slick service even at a loss at this point. It's a really easy service to monetize once they want to, though it may be more beneficial to them to just get as many users as possible at this point.
