Frequently asked questions
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.
What is a Bitcoin wallet?
A Bitcoin wallet is software you can use to administer your bitcoins. There are many wallets for all common computer systems. You can choose between local and online wallets. A local wallet gives greater independence and privacy, while an online wallet can offer more convenience.
Do you need banks in order to use Bitcoin?
Yes and no. If you want to buy Bitcoin directly from, for example, the stock market, you will need a valid credit card or bank account. Another way to get bitcoin is by using custodial wallets like BitBucks. This is possible because Bitcoin is a monetary protocol for the Internet. You can use Bitcoin in the same way as you access a website. Access is enabled by wallet software, which is available in various models free of charge, or by direct connection to a node.
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.
Is Bitcoin the future of money?
Bitcoin is digital and could become the native money of the Internet. Bitcoin is international - it is not issued by a particular nation, but operated and secured by an enormous decentralised network.
Become a part of the Bitcoin monetary system
Bitcoin already provides many of the options and functions of actual money, just like conventional monetary systems. You can trade and exchange it with your Bitcoin wallet as well as send and receive it. There are a wide range of storage options like escrow and cold wallets. In fact, some credit and wage payments are already being based on Bitcoin.
