What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a digital currency that is supported by P2P network of computers across the internet that acts as servers to process financial transactions of this currency. Simply put, Bitcoin is a digital token that can be sent electronically from one user to another regardless of where they are in the world. It is a way of making or receiving payments similar to PayPal, Skrill, and other online payment methods. The total quantity of bitcoins is capped at 21 million. There is no one person or company that runs the Bitcoin network unlike other traditional payment networks such as Mastercard, PayPal, or Visa. Instead, networks of computers all around the globe keep track of all Bitcoin transactions – similar to how the internet itself works.

Since there is no central authority governing it, Bitcoin is able to run outside of any government control or company. Some people believe that Bitcoin is a scam or a Ponzi scheme. On the contrary; once you understand what it is and what it has to offer, it is clear that this worldwide currency is for real. Bitcoin is how the future of money might be like.

Bitcoins share quite a few similarities with other currencies; they can be traded for good or services, they can be used by both retailers and individuals, and they can be used both online and offline. It was created back in 2009 and since then, this currency’s transactions are made with no middle men – meaning no banks are involved. It is becoming more and more popular each day. You can be able to purchase your meals, subscribe to an online dating service, or even do your grocery shopping online with bitcoins.

How much is a Single Bitcoin Worth?

To answer this, I would like you to think of bitcoins as gold. The prices fluctuate constantly and are determined by open market bidding on exchanges. Bitcoin’s value is similar to this. The value fluctuates constantly and is determined by bidding on Bitcoin exchanges. Since 2009, the value of Bitcoin has been rising steadily. By 2013, the price of one bitcoin had risen to $1,242 and has recently hit a high of $2,000. Do note that the prices rise and fall in extremely volatile manner making it near impossible to estimate how much a bitcoin will be worth after a couple of hours. Taking the example of gold as mentioned earlier, it is incredibly hard for us to estimate the value of it at any one point. But one thing that we know for certain is that its value is driven by scarcity. Using this trail of thought, it is clear that bitcoin’s value is also driven by scarcity and since it was stated that only 21 million coins would ever be created, the more sparsely they are spread all over the world, the more valuable they become.

Why Bitcoins?

This cryptocurrency is a product of modern technology and many people have had issues wrapping their heads around having to purchase something that is not tangible. The one great thing about this cryptocurrency is the fact that it is a global currency with a traceable system. It cannot be forged nor can it be stolen as each bitcoin has a unique data stream that supports it. This currency can be used to buy merchandise anonymously. Since this worldwide currency is not tied to any government, country or regulations, international money exchange is incredibly easy and cheaper. It also provides a good saving platform for small businesses as they will be freed from credit card fees. We have already seen bitcoins become increasingly popular in the black market since it’s untraceable. Real-world transaction is now slowly catching up and we foresee Bitcoin becoming a global digital currency for the future.

How Do I Get Bitcoins?

Unlike dollars or Euros, bitcoins as mentioned earlier are not backed by any government body. This means that they are not linked to any issuing authority or any sort of central banking system. This currency is available online and driven by mathematics and ingenious encryption protocols. If you wish to use this digital currency for your online transactions, you first need to purchase bitcoins – this can be done either through your credit card, your bank account or even with cash. Once purchase is made, you will receive your bitcoins directly into your Bitcoin account. Once you have them in your account, you can use them to directly send or receive payments directly from a buyer without any go-between such as credit card companies or banks. For you to start accepting this digital currency, you will need to create a Bitcoin address. This is relatively easy to do as you only need to log on to bitcoins website and register – it can be done anonymously by just about anyone with internet access.

Where do You Buy Bitcoin?

There are companies in most countries that sell Bitcoin in exchange of the local currency. In the United States, Mt. Gox is the largest bitcoin exchange platform that allows people to buy or sell bitcoins using different currencies. Another popular platform is Coinbase. It is among some of the most popular companies that deal in such transactions. All you need to do is open an account with Coinbase and the company will then link to your bank account and sells the coins to you in exchange for dollars. Opening a Coinbase account is similar to opening a bank account – do keep in mind that you will be required to verify your identification. For anyone wishing to remain anonymous, we would recommend that you take a look into localbitcoins.com. This website connects local buyers and sellers to each other in exchange for cash.

Transfer Bitcoin?

Individuals also have the capabilities of transferring their bitcoins to someone else. People can easily send bitcoins to each other using their laptops or mobile devices. It’s actually very similar to how one sends money digitally.

Mining for Bitcoin?

Say you would prefer to find another way to acquire bitcoins without having to buy them. Bitcoins can be mined by powerful computers that complete complex math problems. How this works is people compete to “mine” bitcoins using their computers to solve math puzzles. This is actually how bitcoins were actually created. Bitcoin uses are infinite; however, its structure remains concrete and open source. However, the value of each Bitcoin is disputable. When more and more people log their laptops on to “mine”, lesser and lesser bitcoins will be available. In theory, Bitcoin mining becomes harder and harder. This means that it now takes more and more energy (power from your computer) to process math puzzles and solves the blocks of data.

Therefore, when it comes to mining, the value of a Bitcoin may be related to the price of energy consumed and the cost of maintaining this network. If you think about it, it only makes sense that since there are more and more computers been added to the network daily, the workload on the initial nodes should ease. From here, we can perhaps speculate that the price of bitcoin will increase exponentially over time. Especially since power costs will only rise in the future.

Recently, specialized computers and mining PC’s are becoming available to individuals from companies such as Butterfly Labs and many other companies which harness ASIC (Application-specific integrated circuit) technology. These machines will dominate all others and render most other PC’s worthless as they have been specifically designed for one task only; to mine Bitcoins up to 50 GB/s. Whether these machines are real or a scam is yet to be known. However, if they are legit, the individuals who already pre-ordered will dominate the Bitcoin market. Currently, a winner is rewarded with 25 bitcoins approximately every 10 minutes.

Currently, there are 21 million Bitcoins created but the way they are becoming increasingly popular, I have a feeling that they will rise in quantity. This is because most people who have already acquired some bitcoins and not reselling them or using them but they are merely hoarding them waiting for the day they will become more valuable for resell. This is typically what happens with gold as well. Within no time, there simply won’t be enough digital currency to go around and not enough work or transaction data for the increasing number of miners each day. We can only speculate as to what will happen but for now; it is a good idea to mine and or purchase bitcoins as they will be the future financial currency acceptable worldwide.

How Do I Store my Bitcoins?

To simplify it, think of how your money is stored on PayPal. It is technically a virtual bank account that allows you to have access to your money (send or withdraw) at anytime. The major difference is that with Bitcoin, there is no third party or fees required for the transaction to be successful. Bitcoins are stored in a digital wallet which only exists on a user’s computer or in their personal cloud. This virtual wallet will be able to receive bitcoins from another person. You will also be able to send this digital currency to another individuals Bitcoin wallet. You will be able to pay for goods and services or even opt to save your money just as you would in a traditional bank setup. However, unlike owning a bank account, your bitcoin wallet is not insured by the FDIC. Some major drawbacks to storing your bitcoin wallet in your cloud is that it can get hacked and your coins can be stolen. However, storing them on your home’s computer can deem tricky as you might delete them by mistake or viruses might destroy them.

Is Bitcoin safe to use?

This worldwide currency has become a favorite amongst drug dealers, hackers and people involved in illicit activities. This is because each bitcoin transaction is mostly anonymous. Granted each transaction is recorded, all names of buyers and sellers remain concealed and hard to trace. This means that people can trade just about anything under the anonymous cloud and tracking anything illegal back to them is near impossible. As mentioned, all transactions are recorded on a public ledger called a “blockchain”. Financial authorities and law enforcement can access the blockchain and use it to track criminal transactions.

However, the problem with using this type of currency is the fact that criminals can opt to not associate their true identity with their bitcoin address. When this happens, the trail runs cold and there is no way for the authorities to track down the criminals. To make it harder, there are some Bitcoin laundering services known as tumblers. Tumblers tend to mix transactions together in order to make it extremely hard for authorities to track down a single transaction. Most American exchanges require an individual to register with their real-world identity. However, this is still not the case in most countries worldwide.

Who Created Bitcoin?

Your guess is as good as ours. Bitcoin was first introduced back in 2009 by an anonymous created known only as Satoshi Nakamoto. There have been several people who have been identified as the creator of Bitcoin but up to date, not one has been confirmed or taken ownership of creating this worldwide digital currency. After Bitcoin was introduced in 2009, Satoshi was said to have disappeared completely from social medial two years later. This person – he, she, or they – now has no authority or control over Bitcoin. The search for Bitcoin’s creator continues.

Final Verdict

This crypto-currency is quite a fascinating concept. Sending and receiving bitcoins is as easy and fast as how you normally send out an email. You can use your computer or your smartphone to complete the transaction. The concept behind Bitcoin is relatively simple and easy to understand and by cutting out the middleman, you will pay far less during transactions. Each party involved also has the ability to maintain anonymity if they so wish. Simply put; Bitcoin has provided individuals with an easy and untraceable way to conduct business. Whether this is a good thing or not; all we can do is wait and see.

  4. A very good explanation of what Bitcoin is. I basically knew it was a modern currency that was not tied to old systems. In this article, however, I learned much more. I am especially interested in the part that the creator of Bitcoin is unknown and there is a big secret around this person or persons. Very uncharacteristic of today, when everyone loves to take credit for successful achievements.

  11. Unfortunately Bitcoin is almost completely elusive to those of us who can’t afford to buy it or don’t  have the resources to mine it. Despite the currency not being easy to acquire, I enjoy observing it’s slowly emerging as a global trend, and becoming a gradual impact on the global economy. It will be interesting to observe the future of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies as Covid 19 has created a greater necessity for a cashless society. I have recently been following a new crypto currency in the making called PI (pie).

  19. I almost got into bitcoin like 4 or 5 years ago when I first started college.  It seemed like a good idea and if I had done it, it would’ve been.  Not long after a lot of people began to lose their investments and things weren’t looking too hot for bitcoin.  My first rule for investing is that if I don’t understand it, I shouldn’t put money into it.  Datamining and block chains are abstract concepts to me so I avoid them

I like your single explanations broken down for us to read. I think you are indeed correct that digital currency is how the future of our currency will be. I’m still a bit skeptical of digital currency.

  22. I heard several times before that Bitcoin might be our future currency, but although I have read several article about it, I don’t understand much about Bitcoin and how it works. First of all it seems to have an extremely high value – or did I misunderstand something from those Bitcoin apps or platforms  …? Looking at your explanation, I guess Bitcoin is truly expensive, but I think that if you own some Bitcoins, that you can use them or even accumulate them, right?

    I must say that your explanation was by far the clearest to me. So, I’m relieved to say that I finally understand it! 🙂 

    It seems indeed a little risky to store your Bitcoin wallet on your computer or phone. That is the only drawback I see. Since it is stored online, it is at risk from hackers … I hope that some solution will be found for that.

  30. Hi Tony, thank you for sharing this article about bitcoin. To be honest, I find it incredibly hard to get my head around the whole bitcoin thing. I have looked into to it several times but never got really into it though to gain a better understanding. I have to say that after reading your article, I have gained more understanding, and I always feel curious about how it really works. Realy, I should try it out for fun and probably while I am trying it out I will be able to visualise it a bit better.

  32. Hello there, Tony! Thank you for posting this article about bitcoin. When it exploded back in the day, I did not know anything about it. I only found out later that there was this spike in the price so those who acquired it earlier on when it was cheaper made a lot of money. But that was about all that I knew in addition to the fact that I missed out on that opportunity. I haven’t had much time to do further research on it, but I am glad I ran into this article which explains everything you would need to know about bitcoin.

  33. Thanks for your Bitcoin review, Tony! I learned first about Bitcoin from a cryptocurrency based financial institution known as Wirex a couple of years ago. One thing about Bitcoin is that it brings about investment opportunities for traders. Being the leading platform in the cryptocurrency world, it keeps waxing stronger by the day.

    Recently, PayPal partnered with Bitcoin, meaning that you can now trade PayPal with Bitcoin which has been a long-awaited investment opportunity. I want to believe this is the right time to invest in Bitcoin

  34. It is a great post, Tony. Actually, I learned what bitcoin was from a Wired article about ten years ago. At that time, only a few dollars could buy a bitcoin. Your post reminds me of the past. I should have bought some bitcoins. But having said that, your article explains Bitcoin very clearly.

  35. I have interested in acquiring BitCoin since I first heard of it but I have been unable to find any solid information on what it is, how to buy it, and how to use it.  Mostly what I’ve found are articles that are far too technical for me to understand or (what would seem to be) unreputable companies that want to pay me in BitCoin for surfing sites or whatnot.  

    I think I now understand it to be both an investment and a way to acquire goods/services.  I also understand how to begin investing.  I appreciate you publishing this information.  Your writer prepared an article that was very thorough and easy to understand.

  37. Bitcoin is everywhere nowadays!! While I do believe you can become profitable through Bitcoin, there are so many scammers out there too! Scammers have an easy platform to work on because so few people know how to trade. Myself included, I got scammed. If I ever try Bitcoin again, I will spend the time to learn it myself or go through a trusted friend.

  38. Thank you for sharing. Bitcoin is not all scam and also it’s not for everyone but if you are not an expert, it will be difficult for you to trade. Last year I have introduced cryptocurrency on Robinhood but I couldn’t run even when watching a lot of movies on youtube. To be honest , It a nice trade business but  I will advise you to take your time to learn this and check if you can accept the risk of losing money

  40. Hi Tony,

    Bitcoins are an investment with crypto I have followed; l have earned a great amount from this investment. Currently, it is at around $25K in US Dollars. How far will it go? Hard to say. She did a great job explaining Bitcoin, from the founder to the current market value. Is it a good investment? One never knows how high this coin will go to. Just glad I own a few Bitcoins. I think I will sell them and see how the coin fares. Sometimes you need t take the profit and enjoy it.

    Just my thinking..

  41. Thank you Tony for this wonderful article. I personally, have been hearing about Bit coins and been reluctant to find more about them. This one has helped me A LOT! I have learnt that I can actually purchase them using my credit card or bank account or even cash itself.

    But when I saw the cost of 1 bit coin, as of 2013, at $ 1,242; It made me worry about the low income earners. Will we be able to it? But as you said that prices fluctuate, maybe the prices will decrease.

    In my opinion, this global pandemic has set a stage for the introduction of Bit coin currency. More and more of these articles should be published and shared with the masses because most are illiterate about the concept.

    Whoever monitors this currency, though, has to ensure us about safety. We fear hackers stealing our coins. 

    Whoever you hired to write the article did a great job! I learnt a lot from her submission! In future editions, please list for me credible Bit coin companies in Uganda also.

    Thank you!

  43. Tony thanks for such a detailed text. Bitcoin is something that is a very big topic and there are not many people who understand it. I think when it comes to bitcoin we have to be very careful because there are a lot of platforms that are scams. This is extremely easy in the case of bitcoin because people don’t understand much about it. I learned from my friend who works with bitcoin that before he started dealing with it, he had to go through a few months of education so he would be able to know how bitcoin works. I can recommend everyone to be vigilant and well informed before embarking on a bitcoin business.

  44. Hi Tony,

    I came across this article whilst browsing another part of your site. This caught my attention as my husband dabbles in trading. Bitcoin is something that baffles me. I can’t quite get my head around it. My husband talks about it and I just glaze over. I still can’t quite get my head around the fact that it is a ‘real thing’. This article kind of made me stand up and take notice instead of having my head in the clouds! I think I’ll have to investigate further and maybe even listen a little next time…. Thank you!

  45. Hi, I trade Cryptocurrecy for a living and can say that most of this info is correct however the price of Bitcoin has recently been $10,000 (Not $2,000) and is currently over $19,000. It is obvious that the person who wrote the article does not follow BTC.

    Also Bitcoin is traceable, there is an online ledger that records the transaction it is only your name that can stay anonymous, how do you think they caught the owner of Silk Road? The FBI traced it back through the ledger and IP addresses etc…    So yes you can stay anonymous but it is traceable and if the cops want to find you they will. 

    Anyway your article is mostly right and it is informative but I would say to check the facts in your articles well if you are going to use someone else to write your content

  48. Hi,

    Interesting article. I hear all the time about getting involved in bitcoin trading but it seems to me that it all sounds a bit shady. 

    I have a question, if the number of bitcoins is fixed – at 21 million but people can ‘mine’ for bitcoin, which essentially is creating more bitcoin, does this not then reduce the value or am I missing something?

    Interesting article though and I definitely know more about bitcoin,

    Thanks

  49. Hello Tony! From my experience, the advantages of this coin are high payment freedom, transparency of information, high security, reduced risks for traders. Among the disadvantages we highlight the risk and volatility, the lack of notification and understanding, with incomplete functions, but which are developing.

  57. Hello there!

    That is really an amazing article to behold for a crypto enthusiast like me. I am happy to come across that amazing article because I love Bitcoin and I cease every single opportunities to know more about it cos my knowledge on Bitcoin is not enough. I have always wondered on how Bitcoin mining is carried out, this article just helped my curiosity to a good extent.

    Thanks

  58. I was never familiar with bitcoin. Now I am getting to know one more whereas I too used to think it was a scam.
    So in reading your article I’m understanding more of what it is and how it is similar to PayPal so that makes it a little bit more understanding to me.
    I’m still not familiar enough to deal with bitcoin as I am comfortable with the way I am doing things as it is. But I may give bitcoin a chance somewhere in the near future.

  59. I have heard on and off about Bitcoin for awhile now, but sometimes it takes getting more familiar with a new concept. I think you did a good job of explaining the ins and outs of Bitcoin. I now have a better understanding on what it is and why people view it as being so valuable. I had never heard about mining PC’s before now. Interesting article.

  60. Hello, thank you so much for this article. It was on point. Reading it as opened my mind more and created a sense of understanding in me. I have heard a lot about Bitcoin, I heard it is a good way of making money, I also learnt that is is hard to operate or utilise. But with the article, all my answers and doubts about it has been completely cleared. I’m happy for this. I definitely endorse bitcoin now.

  61. Bitcoin is something that can be verydifficult to understand, when you hear people talking about buying it and mining it it can be confusing. It is something we all need to take time to learn about and understand as it is likely to become more involved in online marketing and online transactions.

    Reply
  62. Very interesting article! I’ve always heard about bitcoins but this is the first time I stop to read thoroughly about it. And to be honest it’s hard for me to imagine doing a bitcoin transaction to an anonymous person. What if he or she doesn’t send me what I bought? Who helps in those cases? Or in the cases where your bitcoins are stolen from your computer in the cloud? All this anonymous thing and not knowing who you are dealing with doesn’t convince me at all… but of course, I will wait and see how bitcoin evolves!!

    First off, Great Article, really awesome and informative. This is an absolute epic piece, but that’s what you always crank out Mate, You have outdone yourself on this one. I really needed such a detailed Article on bit coin. I am choked full with information on it. yes even tho there are a lot out there doing all sort of scams with Bit coin, its still worth giving a try
    I am looking forward to reading the plethora of articles you put up here.

  64. Interesting article. Bitcoin is for sure the future way to do monetary global transactions without the middle man. However, the fact that it is not tide to any government is worrisome. Since you mention that from 2009, the value of Bitcoin has been increasing, would it mean that buying Bitcoins is an investment if we save them? Not that I would buy them since I would not consider it a secured investment for many reasons.

    Reply
  65. Thanks for this Bitcoin clarification. For me, it’s very timely because I have just got some Bitcoins as an associate sales bonus.It was quick to swap it for some money.  

    But I’ve learned that some people only hold Bitcoins because they’re sure they’re going to raise their worth. Some don’t want to keep it because they think Bitcoin could be gone.

  68. Thank you for such an extensive article on Bitcoin. Before reading this post, I was never to sure about the detail of how bitcoin worked, but now I have a lot more understanding I feel more willing to invest.

    I think people shouldn’t fall for the theory that Bitcoin is a scam, which is something you find reported a lot by other people, so I am glad this post has been able to see through that.

    However, I still think bitcoin is a hugely speculative investment and a gamble, but if pulled off, it can be hugely rewarding. I think Bitcoin is suited to those who are not afraid to take risks with their money, and therefore does not favour those who have limited finances to invest.

  73. This is a fascinating read – I’ve always struggled to get my head round the bitcoin concept and have researched it, but still remained confused as to ‘what is bitcoin’… this article explains it very clearly and precisely. I’m tempted to now by some bitcoin as an investment as it seems, as stated, that the value will only keep going up…

    Reply
  74. It is amazing how you have packed so much information about a technical concept in so little space. An excellent introduction to Bitcoin. In terms of safety, you can also store your bitcoin codes on a mobile drive and not on your PC to keep them safe.

    In terms of using Bitcoin for illegal activities, my argument is that many criminals are actually working within government structures and are “legally” stealing and manipulating public funds with ease. They can and are creating more fiat currencies that are open for control, abuse, and manipulation for the benefit of the few. Those people high up in the money system have too much control over our monetary system which impacts negatively on the lives of millions of other people.  A system like Bitcoin may assist the common people to actually better trace how their Public Funds are being spent and reduce the amount of corruption within government structures. 

    Many countries especially in Africa are weakened and crumbling under the corruption of the State. Bitcoin might be the answer to help millions of people take their freedom back. 

    I realize that my comment might be controversial but Bitcoin has to considered from all aspects not only from the viewpoint of people controlling the money systems and fighting to keep it. 

    All the best

  76. I find cryptocurrency intriguing.  I wonder how the other coins, including litecoin ethereum and many more with fare in the next decade.  Many of those coins are much cheaper to buy at the moment.  Where can I get my hands on a mining computer? I bet they are pricey. I don’t think the anonymous aspect of the bitcoin will prove to be an issue going forward for buyers and sellers. However, once the government starts to tax these coins we may run into certain anonymity issues.  Thanks for a detailed explanation of bitcoins. You did your research!!

  78. Hi Tony,

    Interesting article about bitcoin. For me is still a topic with many ? marks, and red flags. People are always more skeptical about intangible things, and the fact that bitcoin comes more popular on the black market, as you said, I think makes people even more skeptical to signing up for companies that sell bitcoins. But what we can do is to wait and see in which direction goes. Thank you for sharing this great information.

A friend introduced Bitcion to me a while ago and despite all she was saying trying to convince me, I don’t really get her message but you review about Bitcoin here is explanatory and easy to digest. Since the world is going digital, I believe the cryptocurrency will eventually become widely accepted. But it’s like a form of MLM

  87. I always like reading your articles because of the history you add to it. It makes me feel like I know the topic even more. The fact the bitcoin addresses can’t be traced has been exploited by kidnappers and the like to defraud people of their money without leaving a trace. I don’t know if the fact that it can’t be traced is doing more good than wrong in the society.

  89. Thank you for the great article about bitcoin! I have been invested in bitcoin for about 4 years now. I first got in when the cost of 1 bitcoin was around $150.  Now it has jumped to over $14,000!  And the future will only bring even higher value for the currency as it become more and more adopted by the mainstream and by wall street. There are so many different types of cryptocurrency and each one has its own unique attributes that differentiate it from the others. Only time will tell which ones survive and become adopted and which ones will be things of the past. Regardless, I find that bitcoin and crypto are here to stay.

  91. I have not invested in Bitcoin and I was very wary when it first came out.  I remember when it first came out.  I wanted to join, but I did not know enough about it.  After seeing it advertised and talked about daily on the television, I did do some research.  And I still did not invest.

    I personally do not know anyone who has invested in it.  Maybe it’s just that good and that they don’t want to share.

    I enjoyed and learned today by reading your article.  I will think about it again.

  93. The world of bitcoins is fascinating. I do a lot of transactions which require settling payments internationally and I use PayPal and Payoneer. I am so tired of dealing with banks. Come to think of it, I haven’t been in a bank for about 10 months. I like doing the things in a digital world and I like hearing about new ways of trading money and investing that will make a moderate risk investor happy. The only feature in this article that is a little turn off is the fact that it attracts criminals and underground operations. One day soon I might just purchase some bitcoins.

    Reply
  94. This is a nice really good way of describing bitcoin. I liked the analogy of thinking of it like gold, because when you think of gold, you think of it in increments. Different weights of gold make up its currency, similarly to bitcoin where its value is broken up between a few thousand dollars. Cryptocurrency is a big part of the world now, even iff you don’t use it, it could be useful to at least be familiar with it.

  95. Glad you blended everything about Bitcoin in this post, Tony! You made me remember how much I invested in the world’s most recognized digital currency known as Bitcoin. I started investing in Bitcoin a few years ago with the expectations that I was going to withdraw to bank at the end of the year, but to no avail. Instead of making profits, I discovered that the value of the digital currency fell beyond expectations.

  96. Wow, that’s fascinating. I have never really taken the time to actually read up on Bitcoin. To be honest it just seamed to far fetched for me. It’s still a bit of a grey area, but what have posted does make sense. Especially the part about the value increasing, as the computers will need to use more power to mine. Like you said, energy prices are going to keep rising so why not Bitcoin. Thanks for the enlightenment Tony.

    I had no idea that there were only going to be 21 million bitcoins in total and also that you could use this currency anonymously. This is not such good news as far as the crime statistics go, but I can see how it is definitely going to become easier to transact anywhere around the world.

    Yes, I think that is a great article. I have been busy with bitcoin in the beginning. That was the time years ago when you could get for 250 Euro  250 bitcoins. But I didn’t trust it. What a pity. If you see what the bitcoin is worth now, I have been foolish. Everything in this post is right. But of course, now it isn’t easy to get bitcoins. Bitcoin is really expensive now. Maybe better to buy other digital currency. They will reach more value too. Great post! Thank you very much!

  104. Hello,

    I enjoyed your article about Bitcoin! I love cryptocurrencies and I believe that they will be a safeguard for people who don’t trust the fiat currencies like USD or EUR anymore. It is indeed a digital gold and as Robert Kiyosaki puts it, “people’s money”. I’ve bought some Bitcoin on Coinbase two years ago. The price fluctuates a lot but honestly I’ve never been so content, especially right now because I feel that the financial system will collapse in the upcoming years.

    Thanks for your useful article.

    Every day Bitcoin get more popular, i remember on 2011 you had to write a person from the other continent to order a pizza for you with Bitcoin.

  110. Tony, I am so thankful you put this What is Bitcoin article together! I now have a better understanding of how Bitcoin works. The issue I have with this new digital currency is that your funds can be hacked and you can risk the chance of losing all your hard-earned money but that’s possible with any normal banking system hey. Nothing can ever be 100% secure. Thanks for giving some clarification on the inner working of this system. I know some people who have invested in Bitcoin and are making profits so I might get into it too at some point, however, the best currency is still gold, which needs a lot of real work to get.

  111. More and more I see Bitcoin entering the mainstream as a real currency that can be used. It JFK airport, you can even use Bitcoin to pay for items in a few of the concession stands. I do think the days of “getting rich” by investing in Bitcoin are gone – at least for the time being. It is interesting that I have seen a few others who have tried to create their own currencies, but, as far as I know, have not been able to get them to enter into the mainstream.

Unfortunately, I do feel that right now it is too late and still cannot understand that if everyone is like me then how does the value increase?

    I have just come back from Turkey and spoke with a number of people there in a somewhat poor environment who have invested in Bitcoin.

  117. Thanks for another great article Tony. I truly do find Bitcoin and the concept of cryptocurrencies fascinating. Back when I was still in college, two years ago now, the Professor of my Business Management course said that he didn’t think Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies were going to get anywhere. They were really starting to come up in a lot of business related conversations then, and everyone thought because it was such a new and unknown concept that the fad would die off. But, here we are, two years later and Bitcoin seems to be increasing as a viable investment option each and every day. Definitely worth keeping up on the current trends of the cryptocurrency market.

  118. Interesting bit on this bitcoin article.  Bitcoin can be very lucrative or very dangerous depending on the user’s perspective.  Since most of the world currencies are being devalued because of the covid-19 pandemic, more and more people are switching to an alternative form of currency and one of the more notoriously popular one is Bitcoin.  I’ve read articles and heard rumors about the value of Bitcoin and how one can instantly become a millionaire and that “now is the time to buy!”  All I can say is “buyer beware” and do your due diligence before investing on Bitcoin or in anything for that matter.  Very thorough article on Bitcoin.

  119. Hi Tony, thanks for such a detailed explanation of bitcoin. Bitcoin, even though we talk about a lot, is still an insufficiently clear topic. This text shows little closer what it means and how we can profit from it. I have a lot of friends who deal with it but it was never clear to me in detail how it works. I think this is a good opportunity for anyone who wants to make money just they have to be prepared for the risk of losing money. But I think if one wants to profit he has to take the risk.

  120. I completely agree with that person. And I have learned a lot about bitcoin mining. I was looking for a simple explanation because my sister is inviting me to invest in a bitcoin mining company. And I was quite hesitant because I did not know how the mining thing works. So, now I know and I think it is a good investment opportunity.

Only a lazy person would say that, like there are various ways of making cool cash only if one is patient, dedicated and hardworking. Even tho the use of this crypto currency has its problem of anonymous business dealers, the profits are more than the risks in conducting a business transaction .

  122. Interesting. I’ve been using bitcoin since 2015, it’s great because I profited 1000$ from just holding it for 4 years though I wouldn’t recommend it because it’s risky as bitcoin is very volatile that it can go downhill at anytime, but I think the main useful part of bitcoin is you can use as a currency when buying on some online stores although acquiring bitcoin can be a bit of a hassle if you don’t know what you’re doing.

  123. Great post. I LOVE bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. I love the fact that one could become an instant millionaire by investing in cryptocurrencies and getting very, very lucky. Unfortunately I couldn’t foresee that the price of bitcoin would rise dramatically a few years back (of course that was nothing compared to its initial rise which made some people instantly filthy rich), hence I traded most of my bitcoin for other digital currencies. Big sad.

    The only gripe I have is that it was a bit inconvenient getting started, and to get money out. Not sure if things have improved, but I remember going to the bank to wire transfer some money to CoinCafe to buy bitcoin. After that, it was easy to move the bitcoin around in the online world. When I wanted to sell bitcoin, the website requires my personal details such as passport copy. I was uncomfortable with that so I sold on Paxful instead (which doesn’t require my personal details for small transactions). I accepted money with my PayPal and followed the exact guide provided by Paxful. Do that and I believe you’ll be safe from scams. 

    Anyway, that is some of my experience with bitcoin and digital currencies. If you have any recommendations as to which cryptocurrencies to buy at the moment, I’ll be most interested to know! I think the digital currencies market is quite hot at the moment due to the Covid-19 situation around the world (or maybe it’s due to some other reason).

  124. Extremely Interesting! 

    I have heard the buzz and even looked into some Bitcoin investing but never went anywhere with it due to my own ignorance. 

    This article has given me a “bit” more insight on the topic. I am more intrigued and will most likely be figuring out how to start a Bitcoin Wallet and load it up a little at a time. Just in case this does someday replace currency as we know it.

    I see you also hired the writer of the article. Just a shout out to the author, well done! 

    I have a contact saved that I got from one of your sites in the past about hiring professional writers. You never know when you might need some extra help with all that we take on in this business. You can’t always do it all yourself. 

    Good read man! I am better from it!

  125. Tony, I am so thankful you put this What is Bitcoin article together! I now have a better understanding of how Bitcoin works. The issue I have with this new digital currency is that your funds can be hacked and you can risk the chance of losing all your hard earned money. I know people who live by Bitcoin and then you have people like me thinks it’s a little risky. But the guestion still remains, will Bitcoin of the past or the the future of the way money will be?

  126. This was and interesting and enjoyable article to read as I have been into the world of crypto since 2017, although I really wish I’d gotten in a lot earlier! 

    I really believe in the tech and the decentralised nature of the asset. I believe that due to its scarcity and the trouble that is brewing for the global economy there will be big walls of money flowing into bitcoin in the months and years ahead and for a buy and hold investment it could seriously appreciate over the next several years.

    One thing that you might want to consider changing is reference to Mt Gox. Yes it was a very large (Japanese) exchange, but it actually closed down in February 2014 and they were embroiled in a debacle because approximately 850,000 bitcoins belonging to customers and the company went missing. So perhaps this exchange isn’t the best advert for bitcoin. Coinbase is good, although their fees are high. 

    Regarding mining, I really don’t see it as something that is viable for the individual anymore. Mining for profit is very competitive, especially when you are up against extremely large mining farms in China who control about 60% of the network, and volatility in the Bitcoin price. This makes it difficult to realize monetary gains without also speculating on the price. Mining makes sense if you plan to do it for fun, to learn or to support the security of Bitcoin and do not care if you make a profit.

    Also, I believe in people keeping their coins off of the web and exchanges; ironically I wrote an article on hardware wallets only yesterday!

  127. This has always been a mystery for me until now. Despite reading articles on it, none of it made sense. In recent years there have been people hacked who had their bitcoin stolen, which then puts people off. Well, me anyway.

    My brother has been mining it for a few years and done quite well but I am not sure if I will dabble or not.

    It may we’ll be that in the future all money will be digital coins such as Bitcoin. It would take the power away from the big institutions which would be both good and bad. Good in that they wield too much power now and bad in that their isn’t any sort of regulation.

    Excellent post, has really made me think and consider it again. Thank you for the information.

  129. Hello Tony! Its good to run into your comment again. You always drop Educative and Informative content and I feel excited anytime I come across your articles. Bitcoin business is a really good one and very legit too. Actually, I’ve heard of it a lot but I kind of needed something to push me into venturing into the business full time. This article is serving that purpose for me. I know some people who have invested in Bitcoin and are making profits. Your post has given me a clearer idea of it and i’m really grateful for that.

  130. This is a very informative post. 

    I think of Bitcoin as a barter network (where you are buying and selling within a closed network) but where the value of the dollar is not equal (due to the floating of the Bitcoin).

    I am afraid I would buy high and be forced to sell low – unfortunately, I am not always lucky at this type of thing.

    Thanks for giving some clarification on the inner working of this system.

  131. I heard of this. I know right now I would like to invest because it is becoming big in the trade world. I believe that since on really knows or is an expert unless you are enrolled with a brokerage firm. So to do this trade outside of my knowledge I would say no. It is skeptical because it is not backed by bank then what happens if goes down? You lose your money.

  132. Wow, this is very educating. I enjoyed reading this article. I did not know much about it until now. It’s true about this theory. The more people continue using and buying bitcoin, the more scarce and expensive it will be when you look at the law of supply and demand. One thing I love about it is how it is a kind of decentralized currency – not monitored by the government or anyone.

  133. I heard a lot about this Bitcoin thing. I know some who are really buying and investing on these. But I really have gotten a grasp of what is it really except that it is another currency. An intangible currency that is circulating with so much craze online.

    Your post has somewhat gave me a clear idea of what Bitcoin is. Though I’m still skeptical whether I would buy nor invest in it. I appreciate your effort in writing this post.

    Thank you very much.

  134. Digital currency is fast becoming the future currency of the world and will soon take over paper currency. Bitcoin has gained so much value and is still gaining much value. Bitcoin investment is one lucrative business because it’s likely to go up for a particular period of time. For me, I’d rather make an investment than mining because Bitcoin mining is not as easy as it seems.

  135. Honest this is a great and educating post! Until now I had just little understanding about Bitcoin but after I had got to peruse your article. everything seems clear to me now. Bitcoin sounds pretty cool and lucrative. But the fact that regulators can’t get to control it makes the adoption very difficult.

  136. Thank you for your post. It is informative and educational. I am still suspected about bitcoin. It is Amazing to me thtat people could just create some numbers, which could be thousands dollar. I still believe that we need to have value in order for stuff to be treated as money.

    If everyone just work on the number, where are food, clothes, and all living things coming from. Everyone needs to create real value in order for the entire society to survive. The best currenecy is still gold, which need a lot of real work to get.

    As you mentioned in your article, whether thisis a good thing or noe; all we can do is wait and see.

  138. I have always been interested in this topic considering this is what our future money might look like,  that is interesting its been use already to purchase everyday items. Now, this is what I am afraid of the volatility you essentially have to be a risk-taker, but can’t overlook the reality that this kind of scarcity can make you a millionaire. I love the traceable system and the fact that it cannot be stolen or forged. This is a great article a must-read.

  139. To answer your question about agreeing with the author of the article, I do in terms of the general information.  The value of Bitcoin is not based on gold, silver or an commodity but upon the value that the public gives to it.  Right now in 2020, one bitcoin is worth approx. $10,000.  So, most people are buying and selling minuscule pieces of Bitcoin.  There are many exchanges online to buy crptocurrency including places like Coinbase.

The popularity of Bitcoin is increasing day by day through which trading or any transaction can be done. This currency is known as digital currency which multiplies its value by purchasing. Those who want to transact something now can use this currency which will bring a lot of benefits which is best known through a secure medium. Finally, thank you for presenting a beautiful idea about Bitcoin.

Bitcoin had helped make  lots of people very wealthy and i continue to trade bitcoin and many other types of electronic currency for profits on a daily basis.Bitcoin is great as long as you don’t let your info become vulnerable to attacks I think cold wallet storage is the best when your not trading. Trading crypto is very risky but yields high returns in a lot of cases im willing to risk a little for a big gain luckily I’ve never lost but maybe 100 dollars here and there but I have made as much as 3000 in one day trading crypto but with very high risk involved but I think bitcoin is great it’s been good to me.

  150. Bitcoin has a lot of hype in the past years. As far as I’m aware, even banks are exploring how to use it including block chain, as it improves the operating efficiencies for cash settlements. But the fact that regulators can’t control it makes the adoption difficult. I read or heard somewhere that Warren Buffett also doesn’t invest in Bitcoin? I suppose it is just too risky.

    Bitcoins are a great way to transact business around the world. But governments due to their loss of power over the financial world, have banned it in various countries. Otherwise, bitcoins and other cryptos have the capability to change the world of finance.

Even though this is still a somehow struggle topic for me to fully process and understand, I do remember when the fuzz of Bitcoins started flooding the news and people were going out of their way to get their hands of one Bitcoin to eventually be able to obtain more. By then, I remember the price flowing from $650 to $800; it’s truly mind-blowing for me to see it’s current estimated price.

Then I forgot about it and unfortunately have not been able to track down my original purchase from back then. I am still not sure I completely understand the premise of Bitcoin, and I am not up on how to purchase it. I did end up signing up for coinbase while trying to find my original purchase/account, but I am npt sure I will take it any further than that. LOL

And I have to admit that I have also been scared of unwittingly getting scammed. I was not aware that the amount of Bitcoins was capped at 21 million, so can understand that it will become more valuable with demand increasing and supply running out.

With so much said about Bitcoin from the perspective of companies seeking your hard earned cash, it is good to see a clear review describing exactly what bitcoin is.  Previously I had a rough awareness but not much knowledge of the detail.  Your review has helped to fill some gaps in my knowledge.  Thank you.  This sentence, “The total quantity of bitcoins is capped at 21 million” now makes it clear to me why the value of bitcoin can rise and fall. I think you may be right, this might be the sort of model for a new world currency. The risks your article highlights make a lot of sense.  EXCELLENT article.  Thank you.

    Thank you for a very detailed explanation  of what  a bitcoin is and why you may want to invest in it or not . I think for most people it is a difficult concept to understand as you are physically unable to see and touch it, which can be daunting. I got to admit I find the whole thing strange as I cannot imagine investing in something that is so volatile. You can make some money quickly but yet again you can lose a lot quickly. It is a risky business.

    Thanks

There seems to be some risk involved with the non tracing aspect but it is worth considering.

  171. Bitcoin has been around the longest among the other cryptocurrencies but I think it became so popular around 3 years ago because of the price increase and everybody went crazy and investing on it. Here in NYC, some restaurants accept Bitcoin and I was so happy with that, it means that it will be more mainstream now. I am currently using Coinbse on my phone, the fees aren’t that bad. Hopefully the value will go up like the prime time again. Etherium is also another good one.

  172. Bitcoin is a digital currency…Okay, so if I want real USD in my account, how does this happen? I must admit that I don’t know enough of this “worldwide money,” and so I am one of the naysayers who wonder if one day this too will be revealed as a scam or some kind of scheme.

    Here is where my deepest concerns and fears are: “the prices rise and fall in [an]extremely volatile manner making it near impossible to estimate how much a bitcoin will be worth after a couple of hours.” I do love that it cannot be forged or stolen, but I just love something that is tangible. Maybe I am a bit old fashion? Maybe I need to learn more with an open heart?

    Either way, thanks for this information.

  176. Thank you for a good explanation on both bitcoins and cryptocurrency in general. it is getting more and more common to use cryptocurrency and there are more and more different currencies that can be used. I think the thought of “virtual money” is difficult to comprehend for the major part of the worlds population at the moment. The news media has had a tendency to focus on the “black market” and giving the cryptocurrency a “criminal personality”. I think this is very sad, because cryptocurrency has come to stay and we need to get used to this type of currency.

    Today, several banks are offering crypto exchange for regular currency, which is making it easier to buy crypto for everybody. Although the fees are quite high when buying from a bank.

    I have some value in cryptocurrency myself, but not much. At the moment I am very curious about Pi, which looks very promising.

Understanding the value of Bitcoin has always been something that confused me, but making the comparison to Gold helped me understand the concept of scarcity. It’s also useful to know where you can buy Bitcoin from especially for someone like me who has no experience buying it and purchasing things with it. I’m still a bit mystified about mining Bitcoin, but I guess it’s simply another way of acquiring it. Thanks for such an informative article.

    Bitcoin is indeed one of the biggest leaps for humankind this new century. It has revolutionised the world.

    One just wishes that the extreme volatility could be controlled somehow.

    There is also the issue of central banks of some countries that are fighting Bitcoin with everything they have. I just don’t know who would be able to hold consultations with those financial authorities, because the article says there is no individual or company that runs the Bitcoin network.

You wrote that having bitcoins is something like keeping gold and waiting the right time to sell. If so then it is not for me..and question regarding legal aspect. Is it completely legal in any country? Thanks.

  196. Great and informative post! Until now I had just basic knowledge about Bitcoin but after I read your article now everything is clear for me. What do you think in the future there’s still be our normal currency like Dollars and Euros or maybe it will be replaced with Digital currency? And there are some other Digital currencies like a Bitcoin?

  197. I have heard many people on the internet talking about bitcoin exchange and bitcoin related things. Now, I finally know what Bitcoin is all about.
    Although Bitcoin is getting more and more popular nowadays, is it popular right now? Do you think it is worth it to invest in bitcoin?

  199. Great write-up on Bitcoin. My worries are about the insecurity attached to the Bitcoin. Keeping it safe from hackers and virus, and the possibilities of undelivered goods which you can not trace to anyone. Don’t you agree that Investing in Gold seems to be more secure, and less stressful to keep safe and it is a tangible item too?

  200. Hi there
    I’ve always been a bit hestitant when it comes to Bitcoin. I prefer PayPal as my preferred method of online payment.
    I have had a few friends use Bitcoin in the past and found it to be very hard to get their money back if the item they bought hadn’t arrived.
    Very informative post! Thanks for the information
    Regards

  201. Hi Tony,
    I remember the times I think it was in 2011 that I heard about Bitcoin. The price was low those time. I had the opportunity to mine 50 per day but, I didn’t care about it. If I did that mining, now I was a billionaire.
    Tony, how long it takes to mine one Bitcoin today?
    thank you

  203. I am so happy someone explained this currency to me finally! I knew it was considered a currency but I wondered who created this, or is given credit, also I know there are many others’ competing so was wondering what may be driving this competition, and is Bitcoin #1 really?

  204. Thanks for the article. It has been an unknown for me about bitcoin though I heard it a lot on the radio and I roughly know that that it is related to dollar and cent online (which I don’t think I am fully correct). This article really outlines it well and make readers easy to understand what is bitcoin about and the headers are being well-sectioned.

  205. I never knew what bitcoins were until a few days ago when an associate from the UK told me his computer was taken over by ransomware and the responsible party demanded payment in bitcoins. I didn’t think it much but your page put everything into place. It makes perfect sense! It was unfortunate for him and the asking price was way more than he could afford. Thank you for the post, I will be researching bitcoins and would like to know more. Where do think I should start? I look forward to hearing from you.

    Respectfully,

    Karl

    • Hi Karl,

      That’s very unfortunate for your Friend to have that ransomware onto his computer and for the scammers to demand the bitcoin as payment. It’s these stories that give legitimate business dealings with Bitcoin a bad name.

      You are welcome and thank you Karl for sharing the story.

  206. Hey Tony, Very interesting article, I have been curious about Bitcoin for a while and found all the information I needed here, seems like a high risk, high profit plan to go for. With the fluctuating prices you can make some good money on a good day, will definitely keep reading around the site and get more information, thanks for this.

  207. Very informative. As an active trader and investor (mostly equities and futures) bitcoin still confuses me. I did appreciate your complete explanation as it helped clarify a few things for me, especially about mining. I always wondered how they were created. Do you think bitcoin is another form of a safe haven investment similar to gold?

  208. Hey Tony,

    Fascinating article!! I see so much in the news about bitcoins and how the value and popularity of them is both rising… but I never really understood or bothered to asked “how Bitcoin really works?”
    You’ve shed a ton of light on Bitcoins and now I have a good understanding. Maybe it’s time for me to invest and/or use Bitcoin!

    Thanks again!

  209. You Had explained very well about bitcoin. I still remember those days when bitcoin value was very less But I never thought to invest in it and Now it is going too high that I can’t buy it

  210. Hi Tony

    Bitcoin has certainly made an impression! It was worth something ridiculous like $0.02 per coin back in 2009 and today it’s just over $2800. Madness.

    I have not invested as much as I should but constantly watching the market and buying partitions here and there.

    They say it will go up to 1M US$ per coin in 7-10 years, this is speculation of course but coming out of the mouth of guys like Bill Gates and Richard Branson.

  211. I have been hearing a lot about bitcoins recently and never really understood what they were, or how it worked. Your article has been educational, but I am still wary of the concept. Although I keep hearing the term bitcoin, I cant ever remember coming across goods or services that accept them. Am I correcting in thinking there are only certain retailers and organisations that will accept this currency. Also, if there is no central authority governing bitcoins, how are they even accepted as legal tender?

  212. Thank you for this very thorough article on bitcoins. I must admit I didn’t know much about bitcoins but your post has clearly explained to me what it actually is and how to obtain them. I have friends who have traded in bitcoins but wasn’t sure how they obtained them but now I do.

    Do you recommend using bitcoins and are they safe to use?

  213. Thanks for this explanation about bitcoin. It’s very timely for me, because I have just received some bitcoins as a payment for affiliate sales. It was easy to exchange it into paypal.

    But I have heard that some people just keep bitcoins, as they are convinced the value will increase. Some don’t want to keep it as they are afraid that bitcoin might be gone. What’s your opinion?

      I have personally never bought Bitcoin and actually hired the writer to research and write this article for me.
