Our wallet uses multisignature technology to secure your bitcoins. With our multisignature wallet, you will need 2 of your 3 private keys to move or spend any bitcoins. This provides an extra level of security to make sure your funds will not be compromised if one of your private keys is.
Your wallet private keys are three. You and BitOasis have access to one of those keys. As BitOasis, we do not have access or control over the 2 remaining keys and by that we do not have control over any of our customers' bitcoins. The second key is held by BitGo, a third-party security company. The third key, or the Recovery key, is a backup for emergencies and is secured under the supervision of an independent law firm that our customers can reach out to in case of any service compromise.
We recommend that our customers use 2-Factor Authentication to secure their accounts online. Our customers are prompted to enter a multi-digit authentication code any time they login or attempt to send bitcoins.
You will also receive an automated phone call or text message asking you to approve any suspicious or large transactions before they are sent. If you approve, your transactions will be processed successfully. If you do not approve, the transaction will be cancelled and the bitcoins will remain in your account untouched.
There are dynamic fees for sending out BTC to another wallet based on transaction volumes on the blockchain and are calculated by BitOasis and added to your transactions. Fees can range from 0.0004-0.001 BTC in most cases. You can request lower fees but confirmation time might be unpredictable.
To protect your privacy, we provide a new bitcoin address for each transaction. This prevents someone from tracking all the payments you receive by looking at the blockchain. Note that all new addresses provided by your wallet will continue to be linked to your BitOasis account.
We post all of our customer transactions directly on the blockchain. No transactions are posted off the blockchain. This allows you to confirm your bitcoin balance at any time. You will be able to view and verify your bitcoin balance available in each of your public addresses right on our website. You can also independently verify your bitcoin balance using a third party service such as Blockchain.info.
Sell bitcoin and withdraw payouts are currently available for our users in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman.
