NZ-Based Bitcoin Trading Platform Officially Launches


New Zealand – BitPrime, a brand-new, full-service Bitcoin trading platform designed to provide a reliable and secure site for the buying and selling of Bitcoin, a type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, this week officially announced their Bitcoin platform is open for business.

Borne from a passion for taking the complexity and danger out of trading Bitcoins, which can come to represent a significant investment, BitPrime is a centralized, consolidated platform in New Zealand that uses a safe, third-party escrow service for all client’s peace of mind.

“We are a cryptocurrency trading platform, committed to buying Bitcoin and selling Bitcoin at the most competitive rates available today,” said Geoffrey Palmer, Founder and Owner of BitPrime. “The ultimate goal of our new site is to make the entire transaction safer and faster for everyone involved”. “Bitcoin is a fairly new concept for most people, so we want to make it an accessible form of investment for everyday New Zealanders”. “With interest rates being so low investors are looking for better returns in different asset classes, and this is precisely what Bitcoin offers”.

For those interested in buying Bitcoin from the platform, they will be able to acquire the digital currency in just minutes. Once the client initiates a transaction, BitPrime’s third-party escrow partner, Local Bitcoins, will hold the bitcoin in trust until the payment has been made. BitPrime can accept both bank transfers and cash deposits, as well as in-person transactions for customers based in Christchurch.
