BitLendingClub just turned 2-years-old and I couldn’t be more excited about the achievements we’ve had so far! In the past two years we went from an unlikely underdog in the uncertain world of Bitcoin, to being the largest P2P Bitcoin lending platform by volume. Our success comes with a renewed dedication to provide a more sustainable and secure platform for an ever-growing community.
When we first started BitLendingClub, we were in a time when Bitcoin was fighting to get into the mainstream. Having a Bitcoin related name was a testament to our enthusiasm about the protocol and our effort to grow the Bitcoin ecosystem. But Bitcoin has already secured its place in society and having the protocol engraved in our company name is a bit like the dot-com companies putting “web” or “e” in front of their names (RIP to Webvan and eToys). We strongly believe that growing the Bitcoin ecosystem will not come from putting “Bit” into our company name or tattooing the Bitcoin symbol in our chest (although some might argue here), but from leveraging the block-chain protocol to solve some massive real-world problems. With that said, we’re excited to announce that, in a few days, we will be rebranding to Loanbase.
When will the rebranding take effect?
We will be officially switching to the loanbase.com domain on September 23, 2015.
What will change?
Aside from switching the domain name and replacing all the references to BitLendingClub, not much! There will be a minor update of the design, but there will not be any changes to the way the platform works.
What will happen to BitLendingClub’s domain?
The bitlendingclub.com domain will automatically forward to loanbase.com. All of the links to bitlendingclub will redirect to the correct loanbase.com pages, including any referral links you have shared in the past. This will ensure the integrity of the platform and the functionality you’ve expected to see.

We’re looking forward to this new and exciting change! Please support us in this effort, but most of all: feel free to contact us if you have any concerns or questions. We’re always here to help and provide you with the best service!
