Bittreo a Vancouver-based retail cryptocurrency brokerage will offer it’s new SaaS (Software as a Service) product will greatly simplify the process for anyone starting a retail crypto brokerage, anywhere across the globe.

“This is a game-changer for global crypto adoption. The main obstacles facing the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies are a lack of trust and difficult access. Our physical location where investors can transact face to face with trusted professionals solves both of those problems.”

Kasukawa continued:

“By using our software, we can empower entrepreneurs to start their own retail crypto locations, anywhere in the world.  We envision thousands of businesses using our software across the globe providing access to a trusted source for cryptocurrency to millions of customers.”

Key Features

Some of the main highlights of the Bittreo software include:

  • The ability to connect via API to a host of exchanges
  • Execute trades in real time
  • Record transactions
  • Automate receipts
  • Store customer data
  • Manage user roles and permissions
  • Perform extensive business intelligence reporting

While this is standard for software platforms for traditional industries such as currency exchanges, nothing like this exists for the crypto industry.

Bittreo developed this SaaS, based on their first-hand experience operating a retail crypto brokerage. Since December 2017, Bittreo has operated a highly successful retail location in Vancouver, BC. In 2018 alone, Bittreo’s retail sales at this location exceeded $20M.

Bittreo has surpassed all odds by recording their first year of business in 2018, (a relentless bear market) yet still achieving such impressive sales, really underlining how well developed their retail model for cryptocurrency is. The company now anticipates strong demand for it’s software offering in 2019, and beyond.

Malcolm Weed, Co-Founder of Bittreo explained the level of response from the Industry since Bittreo’s launch:

“The response has been overwhelmingly positive. Since the first day we opened Bittreo in Vancouver, we’ve had numerous requests from customers, industry peers and businesses to help them open their own crypto brokerages across Canada, the US, Europe and as far as Australia.”

Weed continued:
