As the days go by, the vision of a global economy powered by blockchain nears realization. It may still be early, but there is no denying the distributed ledger technology revolution will soon become an unstoppable force – an inevitability. The latest entrant to this journey is Bitvo, a Canadian financial services company that is ran by vastly experienced individuals. According to the company’s website, the firm will launch a cryptocurrency exchange platform in spring 2018.
The new digital currency trading platform aims to streamline the process of acquiring and selling crypto assets, making it safer, easier and secure. By doing this, Bitvo intends to become the best virtual currency exchange in Canada. Notably, access to this platform is not limited to individual investors, as corporate institutions will also be eligible to trade over this service.
In line with its objective, which is to take over the Canadian cryptocurrency trading sphere, the Bitvo platform will come with a host of exceptional features during its inauguration. Beside the first-rate website, there will be a complementary mobile application, both of which will feature a rich, usable and interactive user interface.
Additionally, the platform will have an automated user registration and identification systems, with free funding options. Transactions on this exchange will be processed instantly, meaning that users will have access to their funds throughout. In this regard, Bitvo will avail an option to link a user’s account with the Bitvo cash card, a feature through which members can withdraw funds in virtually any ATM across the world. Also, customers will receive support whenever they need it.
Pamela Draper, the CEO of the Bitvo Group, said that the virtual currency exchange project was necessitated by the lack of competent platforms in the Canadian market. She stated that Bitvo want to improve the standards of customer service, automate payments and the onboarding process within Canada’s crypto sphere. Pamela concluded by expressing her hopes that the Bitvo exchange will revolutionize the Canadian cryptocurrency trading sector.

Particularly, these two persons re set to occupy the positions of the CEO and head of cryptocurrency trading. Pamela Draper was appointed to assume the role of President and CEO.
