BitQuick.co, and the community, support a blocksize increase. We have the data to prove it!

Uncategorized
Edit on 1/19/2016 - BitQuick.co has officially put its support behind Bitcoin Classic, following suit with other industry leaders. We believe that Bitcoin Classic is the most suitable candidate for increasing the current block size. The blocksize debate has recently become a very hot topic amongst the Bitcoin community, even resulting in /r/Bitcoin going completely unmoderated for almost 2 days. This issue affects all of us in the Bitcoin community, whether we are Bitcoin users, businesses or anything in between. As such, I felt that it was an important time for us to figure out how our users feel, combined with our own company philosophies, to develop a formal position regarding the issue. Part of that involved issuing a survey to all our users from the past 3 months. Hopefully…

There’s no denying the impact that the internet has had on society at large. The world is continuing to shrink as more people are easily able to participate in this marvelous and mystifying vehicle that now closely dictates our daily lives more than ever before. Within all of the change and progress that has occurred in the past couple of decades thanks to the world wide web, however, there still lies an unsettling problem: There is a sizable group of people in the U.S. that have access to the internet, but are either unbanked or underbanked (meaning that they use alternative financial services outside of the traditional banking system). The internet has spread like a catalyst throughout the United States as of late, with the U.S. Census Bureau revealing that…
