The corrected release reads:

BITCANUCK CRYPTOCURRENCY EXCHANGE BOASTS MORE CURRENCIES THAN ANY OTHER IN CANADA AS THE FACE OF INVESTORS CHANGE

As cryptocurrencies continue to gain traction around the world, the launch of BitCanuck gives an opportunity for Canadians to buy from a local exchange with over a dozen digital currencies including Bitcoin and Ethereum.

As institutional investors and Baby Boomers join the ranks of investors, the “wild west” days of crypto-currency are waning, creating an opportunity for Canadian entrepreneurs and investors alike. After recently going live, Calgary-based BitCanuck has captured thousands of users across the country, with almost no marketing effort.

“Although cryptocurrency is global by nature, regulators are moving towards national standards,” said Adrian Sischin, serial entrepreneur and BitCanuck CoFounder. “Canadians want to buy from a stable exchange where they can chat to local people over the phone.”

Sischin, who is an experienced entrepreneur acquired the master-license rights for RE/MAX in 2006 for Europe for the country of Romania, speaks to investors on a daily basis. While many stereotype that investors are young, urban professionals, Sischin says that is not always the case. Cryptocurrencies can create a significant return within months, which is a novel experience to investors used to single-digit returns.

He is incredibly optimistic about BitCanuck as the face of investors is as diverse as Canada itself, including Canadians from rural areas, with the biggest investment amounts coming from Baby Boomers. Although they have the means, these folks may not have the technical capacity of the younger crowd.

“I had a woman from rural Alberta drive her truck over to her nephew, since she did not have the technical ability to take a selfie,” said Sischin. “I talked her through it, and she felt more comfortable. The fact that we are Canadian, provide outstanding customer service and chat to people over the phone makes a real difference.”

In just two months of operation, BitCanuck has attracted users in every province. They plan to help educate their users using online courses and events. Through based in Canada, the company has access to a network of hand-picked experts from across Europe. This helps users get the “best of both worlds”.
