In a move to make room for new technology, a digital exchange is shutting its doors.
The Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska, said Wednesday that the site, which was run by the hospital for more than a decade, would cease operations in the coming weeks.
The news was first reported by the Omaha World-Herald.
The website, which had more than 100,000 registered users, is no longer available on the company’s website.
The exchange, which accepted BTC and USD at the time, allowed users to trade with other people.
In the past, Lincoln hospital users could trade with one another in the site’s mobile app.
The site, based in Kansas City, Mo., had about 1,300 registered users.
The Omaha World Herald reported the site was the largest digital exchange in the country.
The paper said the shutdown came after a review of the Lincoln Hospital website, where it found that the website’s user-base had grown from a small handful of people to hundreds.
Lincoln Hospital has had difficulty attracting new users to its digital currency exchange in recent years, said Lincoln CEO Michael Stutzman in a statement.
The company said it will work to transition its services as soon as possible.
Lincoln was one of only three Nebraska hospitals that accepted Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, according to the Omaha City Council.
In 2017, Lincoln launched its first digital currency marketplace, which allowed users in the city to buy and sell goods and services using Bitcoin and Ethereum.
In October, Lincoln officials said they had shuttered their Bitcoin exchange, due to a lack of demand.
The city was looking to expand its Bitcoin exchange to other locations, said Stutzmann.
