Blend Swap was initiated by Matthew Muldoon on December 3, 2009, and has since been converted into a LLC. in the U.S.

Blend Swap was developed at Poifox, a one-man Web-Dev studio based in Costa Rica, where Jonathan Acosta spends his days writing code.

Blend Swap is a big place and consists of tons of parts brought together so the site works across different Operative Systems and modern Web Browsers.

Blend swap is built upon lots of different technologies, most of them released under the MIT License, and others in the Public Domain for free use and adaptation.
