Bitify has also processed over USD $2.5m through its escrow service, making it one of the most widely used and trusted escrow services in the Bitcoin ecosystem.

The popular marketplace lists a diverse range of products from computer hardware and software, digital games, and gift cards to motor cars, real estate, gold, and silver. Bitify is proud to have hosted several charity auctions, from the Ten Trillion Zimbabwean dollar bill signed by Bitcoin guru Andreas Antonopoulos, to the very recent Direct Relief fund raising campaign in partnership with SatoshiLabs.


Bitify is a bootstrap business, having received no capital investment so far. However the founders are now seeking external investment in order to fund the development of several new key features. Amongst these are plans to introduce customisable “store fronts” in order to target power sellers and small businesses.

Bitify is based in Sydney, Australia, and is registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
