Bitcoin trading platform ZeroBlock is closing down on Thursday, according to a notice posted to the service’s website.
A separate notice displayed to trading platform users advised revoking "any API keys from your exchange service", stating that the ZeroBlock database will be wiped after the shut down on 7th April.
The service, owned by bitcoin wallet service Blockchain since 2013, did not disclose why it is closing down.
In a statement, Blockchain co-founder Nic Cary told CoinDesk that the company would continue to maintain its existing ZeroBlock mobile apps, focused on price and data.
"While we’re no longer developing the trading interface, Blockchain will continue to support and maintain the ZeroBlock apps for iOS and Android, which have very strong ratings in both app stores," he said.
