Uphold (formerly Bitreserve) is a cloud-based digital money platform. Users can buy, hold, convert and transact across currencies and commodities, including cryptocurrencies. Headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, it also has offices in Larkspur, California, Braga, London, and Shanghai, Uphold allows users to convert bitcoin into "cloud money,"[1]

History[edit]

Uphold (previously Bitreserve), was founded by Halsey Minor in 2013.[2] In 2015 the company was renamed and former Nike CIO Anthony Watson was appointed CEO.[2]

In June 2015, Uphold removed all fees regarding money transfer for verified members.[3]

During late October 2020, Uphold suddenly discontinued their relationship with crypto-lending provider Cred [4]
