What is Bitquence?

Bitquence is a people-powered cryptocurrency services company that is creating a Universal Wallet that lets you instantly diversify value across multiple crypto assets. Furthermore, Bitquence is issuing a token that has unique proof-of-stake community consensus features for risk and quality profiles and will form the backbone of the digital liquidity network, a global payments system that links fiat and crypto assets.

How will this help people get into cryptocurrencies?

Bitquence offers a single place for users to buy and interact with cryptocurrencies simply and easily. Bitquence simplifies using cryptocurrencies without losing the financial power and freedom that they offer.  They are trying to make it as simple as possible.

What is proof of stake community consensus?

Bitquence is building a method of staking BQX tokens against risk and quality profiles helping newer users navigate the market. Furthermore, a portion of the fees from the Bitquence platform will be used to reward users making accurate predictions in community consensus.

How is Bitquence different from Iconomi and ShapeShift Prism?

Iconomi is a pioneer, and is focusing on helping institutional money manage digital asset arrays. Shapeshift’s new Prism service is trying to make a market in asset allocation, eg there needs to be an opposite prism for a buyer and seller to make a match.

The Bitquence team also has deep mobile expertise, and is working hard on making Bitquence is mobile friendly.

Our goal at Bitquence is low fees, liquidity and transparency.   Our one-click diversification feature will not require a buyer or seller, but rather be part of a managed user portfolio. This is part of a larger vision to create a universal digital liquidity network based on the Bitquence token which makes the crypto market far more accessible to new users.

When will the platform be released?

Bitquence will roll out features of the platform as they are ready. First step is to roll out proof of stake and work towards building a regulatory and consumer protection model that will allow the release of subsequent features such as the universal wallet and one-click diversification.

Described as being a “multi-year project and vision” by its founders, Bitquence aims to go market by the end of 2017 with the Bitquence wallet, Cold storage, Proof of Stake and portfolio diversification. Next year plans are slated to initiate the liquidity network, value transfer and fiat gateway.
