The longest standing Bitcoin exchange facilitating crypto adoption in Europe since 2011.

After two years of development, with more than 25,000 clients, Blockchain.io is about to experience its most important evolution.

Technical innovations and new regulations have led us to this decision.

As of April 30, 2021, the migration of Blockchain.io services to Paymium begins!
Once the migration is completed, altcoin trading services will resume on Paymium.

Paymium, one platform to trade them all.

A streamlined experience

Once the migration is complete, all Paymium users will be able to access cryptocurrency services currently hosted on Blockchain.io. Therefore, the transfer of funds will be easier for users who have an account created with the same email address on both platforms. The trading experience will be simplified. Whether you are depositing euros, buying bitcoins or trading altcoins, all these actions will be performed on paymium.com.


Opening opportunities for the BCIO Token

We are simplifying our message by redirecting all our users to the same platform. Paymium’s strong base of 220,000 customers is the foundation for use cases of our proprietary token (“BCIO”), which is intended to be used directly on Paymium. The BCIO Token will be integrated directly with Paymium’s functionality.


Technical improvement

The Blockchain.io platform was developed from an open source code, which allowed a faster development since the core functionality was already integrated However, the performance of the matching engine of Peatio limits the number of transactions per second on the platform. The powerful matching engine deployed on Paymium will enable more transactions to be executed than before.

Compliant and ready for mass adoption

Introduced by the PACTE Act in 2019, the new PSAN statute establishes common governance and compliance rules for digital asset service providers.

Paymium is registered as a PSAN (PSAN stands for the newly created French mandatory status “Prestataire de Service sur Actifs Numériques”) after a year process. This new status is a recognition of our efforts and a sign of confidence for all Paymium customers.

The migration from Blockchain.io to Paymium will ensure that all our services remain easy-to-use and secure while complying with the new regulations.
