Quickbit continues the strategy of broadening the company’s target groups. The new phase, which began in the middle of the previous year, meant that the company broadened its offering to also include products aimed at the consumer market.

To better meet the challenges of the new phase and support the implementation, Quickbit is making changes in the Group management team.

“Over the past year, we have adopted a new direction and are building an ecosystem of services to facilitate the use of cryptocurrency in people's everyday lives. The new management team reflects the needs of the new phase and means that we will be able to develop these services more efficiently and quickly. Niklas will, with his expertise and cutting-edge knowledge, be an important contribution and I am very happy to welcome him to the team. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Ejub Bicic for his valuable contribution to Quickbit's development and wish him luck when he now leaves Quickbit, ”says Hammad Abuiseifan.
