Harborly Is Closing Down

When we first launched Harborly just over a year ago, we had the vision of giving our users the simplest, quickest, and safest way to buy and sell Bitcoin globally using their local currency.

We’ve worked hard and moved quickly, launching first in Canada and the United States, with efforts underway to launch in India. Our team has had an incredible and exhilarating journey as a provider within the Bitcoin ecosystem as it experienced highs, lows, and everything in between.

And while each and everyone one of us still holds this vision, we recognize that now is the time to move on.

Why are we closing down?

We would like to state categorically that Harborly’s shutdown has not been prompted by a hack, by fraudulent activity, or by a security-related incident. While that may have been true for other firms in the Bitcoin space, this is not the case for Harborly.

Instead, a new venture that we’ve been working on as a side project has recently gained traction. Given the potential of the opportunity, it makes far more sense for us to shift our limited resources away from Harborly to focus on this new project.

We would also like to mention that Harborly is in the process of finding an acquirer, and we’re excited to sell to an organization with the resources to see what we started through to the end.

Please reach out to our dedicated email address at transition@harbor.ly with any questions, comments or concerns.

We believe in the future of Bitcoin

We continue to believe in the future of Bitcoin, and we greatly respect our peers in this space. Many of them have succeeded and have the necessary funding to continue growing and innovating quickly. We hope you’ll visit their sites and consider their services. We wish them nothing but the best.

  • Coinbase has raised $75 million with support from the NYSE
  • Circle has raised $50 million with support from Goldman Sachs
  • Bitreserve has raised $9.8 million through crowd funding

Our heartfelt thanks to you

Finally, we can’t say enough to express our thanks to you, our users, who have believed in us all this time and given us the opportunity to serve you.

The past year has been amazing. We have learned so much from the experience and are excited to turn our attention to this new venture. We hope that our paths cross in the future and that you’ll give us the opportunity to be of service to you again.

Thank you,
The Harborly Team
