Bitcoin buying service Brawker has announced that it will close its doors at the end of April, citing competition and workload issues.
Gabriel Majoulet, CTO at Brawker, told CoinDesk:
He suggested that the Brawker team will continue working on bitcoin initiatives. "We want to move on to the next project and start working on something that's more useful to the community," he said.
Majoulet confirmed that user transactions would be completed before the service went offline. Brawker is no longer accepting new orders, he added.
