30 day trailing volume began at $100k and 30 day trailing new users at 50 in early 2015, but by the end of the year 30 day trailing volume had increased to $1.4M and 30 day trailing new users eclipsed 700. The platform has processed over $12,000,000 in transactions since launch. According to the BitQuick team, the company’s admission into the 5th Tribe of the largest Bitcoin accelerator in the world in February 2015, Boost VC, has heavily contributed to their success.

Echoing the recent steps of several prominent Bitcoin businesses, BitQuick has made the announcement of their integration with BitGo™ Instant.

BitGo is a well known multi-signature Bitcoin wallet, and was the first commercial multi-signature wallet to be released. The company was founded in 2013, and has raised $14 million dollars in venture capital funding to date. As a leading multi-signature solution, BitGo offers several robust features, including an API, dynamic fee management, and wallet services for any blockchain. BitQuick integrated with BitGo Enterprise™ in 2014, being the first major trading marketplace to implement P2SH multi-signature escrow addresses.

BitGo Instant is a new option that allows bitcoin to be available immediately upon receipt, eliminating the need to wait for confirmations. This feature also allows for the prevention of double spend attacks, which occur when a sender spends money elsewhere before the blockchain confirms the transaction.

Through the use of a third-party key recovery service, BitGo is able to guarantee against double spends and compensate users in the event that their transaction is not confirmed by the blockchain and losses are incurred as a result. The service is free for transactions under 1 BTC, and carries a 0.1% sender’s fee for transactions over 1 BTC. BitGo Instant is currently being used by several prominent Bitcoin businesses, including Bitfinex, Kraken, and Shapeshift, as well as fellow Boost VC alumni Fold, CoinHako, and Unocoin.

Jad Mubaslat, Founder and CEO of BitQuick, showed excitement about the development, stating

"The new BitGo Instant feature comes at a perfect time. Due to Bitcoin Core's unwillingness to increase the block size, innovations such as BitGo Instant are more useful than ever."

BitGo Instant is beneficial for BitQuick users due to the currently unpredictable rate of block creation by miners. While users would usually need to wait for several minutes or even several hours to receive a transaction confirmation, they will now be able to fill their escrow immediately and have their bitcoins instantly listed for sale. Users wishing to buy bitcoin will now be able to have access to more liquidity, as bitcoin will be placed for sale more quickly.

The new feature will also allow BitQuick to operate in a more secure manner due to the added protection against double-spends. BitQuick will be allowing the receiving of BitGo Instant transactions, and hopes to soon enable instant sending transactions for buyers.
