BitQuick, the peer-to-peer trading platform, has announced that it has created its own ZapChain community in an effort to bring together and expand the peer-to-peer trading userbase. ZapChain is an new social media platform that enables the creation of communities powered by microtransactions via bitcoin.
With the inclusion of tipping, ZapChain allows users to use microtransactions as a way to reward other users for participation. Microtransactions can be sent to those creating content, starting discussions or selling a product or a service. Tipping other users provides an incentive to content creators to publish quality content, as good posts may generate income if they are rewarded by other members of the community with small tips. ZapChain also offers paid “bounties” in order to boost the visibility of posts, and allows free, open and uninterrupted communication.
BitQuick Founder and CEO Jad Mubaslat stated: “ZapChain was one of my favourite start-ups I heard about when I was out at Boost VC. Incentivizing content creators with microtransactions is a revolutionary idea, and is a great use case for bitcoin. Even more amazing is that all of ZapChain’s transactions are performed on the blockchain using Blockcypher’s microtransaction API!”
BitQuick’s new ZapChain community is intended to provide an easy way for users to communicate with one another about the platform. Different selling strategies can be discussed, as well as support issues and new features. The community has been described as friendly to new users that might be interested in BitQuick as an option to sell or buy bitcoin. Experiences and general feedback about BitQuick can be shared in the community, allowing for the service to directly review the opinions of its user base and continue to improve the user experience.
