Waterhole, the mobile based marketplace for users to buy and sell bitcoin, has finally been released. It is a refined marketplace that caters to both advanced sellers and new buyers in a safe, protected ecosystem. After years of selling bitcoins online and being frustrated by the lack of improvement in the marketplace, the two founders, Ziqi Chen and Jason Nguyen, decided to reform the system to safeguard both sellers and buyers of the virtual currency world.

  2. Better customer service systems for instant message communications.
  3. Full featured social instant messaging (IM) functions, meanwhile allowing anonymity if desired.
  • Anti-fraud measures that are unheard of in the marketplace such as
  1. Geo-fencing to block certain users from a particular area or bank branch
  2. Triple verification process for users through ID, headshot photo, and video verification
  • Seller system
  1. Real-time photo and video upload to prevent Photoshopped media, allowing for better peer-to-peer AML/KYC verifications and payment proofs.
  2. Automatically start and end sales based on preset settings
  3. Easily adjust pricing automatically
  4. Filter out buyers based on volume, score, ratings, verifications, and much more
  5. GPS-based selling allows sellers to confirm a particular transaction at a specific bank location and local face to face transactions
  • Buyer system
  1. Find the nearest bank or credit union listing from each advertisement categories.
  2. Choose from available and active sellers.
  3. A variety of payment methods depending on the buyer's need.
