FAQ - Bitcoin Basics
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a virtual currency, also known as a cryptocurrency. It was developed in 2009 and has grown at a rapid rate since then. Bitcoin is accepted in almost every country in the world; more than 500 million dollars have been transferred via this method till today. It gives an unprecedented degree of financial autonomy to its users.
Why is Bitcoin so revolutionary?
Bitcoin is a truly international currency which is inflation-resistant, private, autonomous, does not require consent and cannot be censored. There is no central bank devaluing money through inflation, nor any banks or other middle-men conducting the transfer between sender and receiver. Bitcoin transactions are without borders. The user's private key gives full ownership of Bitcoin units, and with a passphrase you can even store it in your head.
Who can use Bitcoin?
Anyone who has access to the Internet. Everyone is equal with Bitcoin; the network does not require permission. Age, gender, religion, social status, origin - Bitcoin does not recognise these categories.
Who does Bitcoin belong to?
Bitcoin is, in essence, an open-source software. This means that it belongs to no-one and therefore to everyone. No-one can build a fence around Bitcoin - everyone has access.
What is an BTC address?
Bitcoins are sent to addresses. An address is an approximately 35-digit character combination. It has a similar function as the IBAN number for bank transfers: You can transfer money to it by entering it in a field on the transfer form. However, unlike IBAN numbers, your wallet can form an almost infinite number of addresses.
What is the difference between Bitcoin and PayPal?
PayPal is a closed system. The money that is moved via PayPal remains in that system, and can only be accessed through PayPal software. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is an open system. The user can transfer money directly, without a middle-man. At the same time this means that there is a market for middle-mens, who can provide users with an interface for Bitcoin and, with a wallet like BitBucks, payments are cheaper and more convenient.
