BitQuick, the over-the-counter cryptocurrency marketplace has increased its coverage by adding the fourth largest cryptocurrency in the market, Bitcoin Cash [BCH] to its platform. This inclusion will allow peer-to-peer purchase and trading of BCH in less than three hours, BitQuick claims.

The marketplace is owned and operated by Athena Bitcoin, which operates Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency ATMs in the US, Columbia and Argentina. Athena Bitcoin also operates Mercado Athena, another BTC marketplace.

Additionally, BitQuick is also used by traders to convert digital currencies to fiat or vice versa in the following countries: US, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Australia.

BitQuick is pegged as a “relatively decentralized” platform as it offers Localbitcoins’ like multi-signature escrow system which allows it to operate relatively freely in the US’ regulatory atmosphere while adhering to the Know Your Customer [KYC] requirements and transactions limits.

At the moment, BitQuick operates in 49 states in the US, with New York being the only exception. Back in 2015, the peer-to-peer Bitcoin market place ended their New York operations as they could not comply with the state’s BitLicense that required every local Bitcoin seller to apply for a license.

The marketplace also accounts for privacy as they do not store their client’s private keys, relying on escrow settlement to generate them. Customers will be allowed to trade up to $250,000 using P2SH [Pay to Script Hash] multi-signature addresses.

In order to gauge the market demand and accordingly expand their cryptocurrency coverage, BitQuick will send out a survey to traders before adding on to their Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash markets.

The BitQuick announcement comes right when Bitcoin Cash has been enjoying a bullish market, as it saw a price increase of more than 7 percent in the past 24 hours. The overall market has increased by over $2 billion as major coins are awash in green, with BCH leading the charge as the highest gainer in the top-10.

In recent news, Bitcoin Cash proponent and CEO of, Roger Ver sparked controversy by comparing Bitcoin [BTC], in its original form, going by its 2009 whitepaper, to Bitcoin Cash in its current form as the only true, “peer to peer electronic cash system for online payments.”

The Bitcoin community on Reddit accused Ver of “borderline scamming” new and uninformed investors who want to invest in Bitcoin and not in its hardfork Bitcoin Cash.

The online community has also credited Ver’s website as one of the main mouthpieces of the pro-Bitcoin Cash narrative. Last week, one outspoken critic John Carvalho, known in the community as Bitcoin Error Log, challenged Ver to a “fight” with the rights of hanging in the balance.

Bitcoin Cash is ‘stupid’ and Roger Ver is a ‘scammer,’ claims Blockstream’s Samson Mow

In the latest edition of Magical Crypto Friends, Blockstream’s Samson Mow, CSO of Blockstream, criticized Bitcoin’s fork coins and their influential proponents.

Whale Panda, one of the most popular influencers in the crypto-ecosystem, addressed a myriad of subjects on the episode. One such subject was Bitcoin Cash [BCH] reversing a malicious entity’s transaction via a 51% attack. He started out by addressing the much-hyped fork coin attack and said,

“.. after the hard fork someone claimed the segwit coins and two [mining] pools and colluded took them for themselves to redistribute them to righteous owners”

Countering the former’s use of the term “righteous owner,” Samson Mow, who has been critical of Bitcoin Cash, took a shot at the community and added,

“How do you even know who owned them? [..] they just they gave the coins back under the rule of Finders Keepers”

According to Whale Panda, the attack highlighted how vulnerable the Bitcoin hard fork coin is to attacks. Following the statement, Mow called Roger Ver, CEO of and popular BCH enthusiast, a “scammer,” adding that the “only thing that matters is that BCash is stupid.”

He further explained that the entire reversal of transactions was possible in BCH because of “low hashrate” and would not have happened in Bitcoin Core [BTC]. Agreeing with Mow’s statement, Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin [LTC] said,

“.. that’s true because if Bitcoin Cash, really does like die from this they can just go back to mine Bitcoin and they wouldn’t really lose their cash cow, right. Their miners won’t be worthless, but if they did this on Bitcoin and really hurt Bitcoin’s value, it’s gonna hurt their profitability by quite a bit.”
