Atlanta-based bitcoin buying service provider Trucoin.com is soft launching its waitlist in over two dozen states.
Trucoin offers a service to buy bitcoin using a Visa or MasterCard, backed by fraud detection technology and legally compliant in all states it operates in.
The company says that its pilot program provided an opportunity to enhance the speed and ease with which customers can create an account and buy.
Trucoin co-founder and President Chris Brunner commented
Since 2011 compliance has been part of what we knew would be a key to long-term success in this space. It’s no easy task because it does impact all facets of the business, but having taken that approach from day one means that it is something we are uniquely prepared for.
Trucoin’s Head of Marketing Brent James noted:
We felt it was extremely important to offer everyone the ability to own a useful amount, in a matter of minutes. Buying and owning bitcoin is something that the less tech savvy should be able to do effortlessly. Once people actually own and use bitcoin, they begin to see the possibilities. New technology adoption benefits from a customer-conscious experience. It can help flatten the learning curve and allows more people to have fun using new things.
In addition to buying bitcoin, Trucoin customers may have their bitcoin delivered instantly to one of their external wallet addresses or maintain it in their Trucoin account which is PCI compliant and protected with encryption and security protocols.
