BitQuick’s take on The North American Bitcoin Conference in Chicago

BitQuick’s take on The North American Bitcoin Conference in Chicago

One of the greatest things about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general is the unyielding strength behind its community. While Bitcoin was nothing but a newly-released pet project five years ago, the technology is now host to countless dedicated and relentless individuals that keep the community alive. These individuals continue to bring more and more of the exposure that Bitcoin needs in order to spring into the next phase of both consumer and institutional adoption alike.   Last weekend, the community was brought together at The McCormick Place in Chicago for The North American Bitcoin Conference, an annual Bitcoin gathering that was hosted in Miami last year. The conference is a pure celebration of Bitcoin. Several businesses exhibited and sponsored the event, and dozens of prominent and revered members of the…

BitQuick is thrilled to announce the re-launch of BitQuick.in!

BitQuick is thrilled to announce the re-launch of BitQuick.in!

In December of 2013, Bitcoin’s traction quickly began increasing in India. Despite initial regulatory uncertainty regarding Bitcoin’s longevity in the region, BitQuick India has been open for business since launch, and will continue to operate for the foreseeable future (especially in light of a more recent and less aggressive position taken by the RBI in comparison to previous statements). BitQuick.in launched in late December of 2013, and has served over 50 customers to date. Continuing with the recent interface upgrade of BitQuick Taiwan, BitQuick India has also received the very same simple and convenient interface upgrade. The interface will allow our users to more quickly and easily navigate our streamlined peer-to-peer marketplace. The BitQuick India team is headed by Keertan Patel, who has been involved in the cryptocurrency space since early 2013,…

BitQuick is standing behind Net Neutrality; Throttling FCC Connections

BitQuick is standing behind Net Neutrality; Throttling FCC Connections

When hearing the word “internet”, one of the first things that might instantly come to mind is freedom. Boundless expression. The world-wide web is not only a tool that can be used to obtain a nearly-infinite amount of information, but also a non-discriminant hub through which anybody can freely and justly traverse. Today, BitQuick joins the plethora of technology companies urging the Federal Communications Commission to regulate Internet Service Providers as Common Carriers. As an internet-based startup, we simply would not be here today if it were not due to the open internet access that we all love and share. If the FCC rules that Net Neutrality laws do not apply to ISPs, the internet we use now will be vastly different from the one of the future. The internet…
