What is Strike Instant?

Strike Instant provides advanced access to send, spend, and withdraw funds that are still pending deposit availability.

A pending balance occurs due to ACH bank deposits taking a few business days to complete and be available. During this period, the funds can be used to trade bitcoin, but are unavailable to send, spend, or withdraw. With Strike Instant, you can access a set amount of pending deposits for any type of transaction.

Strike Instant is available to select users in certain regions whose accounts are in good standing. Using the Strike app consistently can increase your likelihood of getting access to Strike Instant, but is not guaranteed.

If you want to buy bitcoin and withdraw it immediately, it’s best to use cash payment methods that have no pending period, such as wire transfers and direct deposits. Strike offers unlimited deposits via these methods, so you can buy as much bitcoin as you want and send it all immediately.
