BitQuick is a peer-to-peer Bitcoin exchange that allows users to buy Bitcoins with cash. The platform is essentially a third-party escrow agent. BitQuick holds both BTC and fiat while users complete the required steps to finalize the transaction. They provide an easy way to convert BTC to cash and support USD, EUR, and CAD. BitQuick is available worldwide, but used mainly in the US.
The exchange interface looks good and is clean and easy to use. The platform is intuitive and user-friendly, making it really easy to buy and sell Bitcoin in just three steps. Users don't need to open an account to make a trade, but ID verification is required for purchases of BTC. The website is responsive, and it looks good on mobile devices, but the exchange doesn't offer Android and iOS apps.

BitQuick has a good reputation for security in the BTC community. Since users don't have to register to trade, they don't provide 2FA. However, BitQuick offers a third-party escrow wallet with multi-sig in partnership with BitGo for storing the coins during the transactions and they have a proof of reserve display which allows anyone to see the amount of coins held in each of the escrow accounts.
