Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For some more great introductory videos check out Andreas Antonopoulos's YouTube playlists, he is probably the best bitcoin educator out there today. Also have to give mention to James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Lots of additional video resources can be found at the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here. Scaling resources here, and of course the whitepaper that started it all.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com and Howtobuybitcoin.io are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also, check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Bank Transfer Credit / Debit card Cash
Coinbase Coinbase LocalBitcoins
Gemini Bitstamp LibertyX
GDAX Bitit Mycelium LocalTrader
Bitstamp Cex.io BitQuick
Kraken CoinMama WallofCoins
Xapo BitcoinOTC
Cex.io
itBit
Bitit
Bitsquare
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Cashila or Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
Android iOs Desktop
Mycelium BreadWallet Electrum
CoPay AirBitz Armory
Another interesting use case for physical storage/transfer is the Opendime. Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend Bitcoin by physically passing it along so it's anonymous and tangible like cash.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin μBTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.

For lots of additional video resources check out the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
  • Limited Supply - There will only ever be 21,000,000 bitcoins created and they are issued in a predictable fashion, you can view the inflation schedule here. Once they are all issued Bitcoin will be truly deflationary.
  • Open source - Bitcoin code is fully auditable. You can read the source code yourself here.
  • Accountable - The public ledger is transparent, all transactions are seen by everyone.
  • Decentralized - Bitcoin is globally distributed across thousands of nodes with no single point of failure and as such can't be shut down similar to how Bittorrent works.
  • Censorship resistant - No one can prevent you from interacting with the bitcoin network and no one can censor, alter or block transactions that they disagree with, see Operation Chokepoint.
  • Push system - There are no chargebacks in bitcoin because only the person who owns the address where the bitcoins reside has the authority to move them.
  • Low fee - Transactions fees can vary between a few cents and a few dollars depending on network demand and how much priority you wish to assign to the transaction. Most wallets calculate the fee automatically but you can view current fees here.
  • Borderless - No country can stop it from going in/out, even in areas currently unserved by traditional banking as the ledger is globally distributed.
  • Trustless - Bitcoin solved the Byzantine's Generals Problem which means nobody needs to trust anybody for it to work.
  • Pseudonymous - No need to expose personal information when purchasing with cash or transacting.
  • Secure - Encrypted cryptographically and can’t be brute forced or confiscated with proper key management such as hardware wallets.
  • Programmable - Individual units of bitcoin can be programmed to transfer based on certain criteria being met
  • Nearly instant - From a few seconds to a few minutes depending on need for confirmations. After a few confirmations transactions are irreversible.
  • Peer-to-peer - No intermediaries with a cut, no need for trusted third parties.
  • Portable - Bitcoins are digital so they are easier to move than cash or gold. They can even be transported by simply remembering a string of words for wallet recovery.
  • Scalable - Each bitcoin is divisible down to 8 decimals allowing it to grow in value while still accommodating micro-transactions.
  • Designed Money - Bitcoin was created to fit all the fundamental properties of money better than gold or fiat

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
  • If you prefer to "Be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, there are many software wallet options here. If you want easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices, then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor or Ledger is recommended. A more advanced option is to secure them yourself using paper wallets generated offline. Some popular mobile and desktop options are listed below and most are cross platform.
Android iOs Desktop
Mycelium BreadWallet Electrum
CoPay AirBitz Armory
  • If you prefer to let third party "Bitcoin banks" manage your coins, try Coinbase or Xapo but be aware you may not be in control of your private keys in which case you would have to ask permission to access your funds and be exposed to third party risk.
Another interesting use case for physical storage/transfer is the Opendime. Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend Bitcoin by physically passing it along so it's anonymous and tangible like cash.

Best Wallet/App to monitor my investment?

I purchased some Bitcoin/Ethereum/LiteCoin within the last week through CoinBase. I really like the CoinBase user interface on Android as I can see exactly how much the current price of each currency, charts of price over time, how much total money i have, and how much in each crypto-currency I have.
The only "downside" is that i am trusting CoinBase to keep my funds secure.
I put my BTC into a wallet (Copay i think), but didn't like the fact that i couldn't easily monitor minute by minute how my investment was doing.
Does anyone know of a wallet that does this? I am also happy to input my investment data into an App that will show me the same outputs as CoinBase (while allowing me to safely put investments into a separate wallet).

Market conditions and Viacoin

As i am writing Bitcoin dips again, i hope we can sustain the 8000 satoshi level for Viacoin.
Where the bottom lies for Bitcoin? nobody knows.Is this market manipulation? yes probably if you ask me.
In my opinion they are confusing the markets, and a lot of people will impulse trade.
I'm going to be fair, i lost a decent amount of money but sold nothing and will not sell, even if it meant to be that i lost everything what i have invested.
Yes, it sucks to lose hard earned money, definitely if you have not much to spend each month, and what you can spend you bought cryptocurrency for it recent months.
But i am not seeking compassion here, i did it myself, and tought the market was slowly recovering, well we all know how that turned out.
Thats why i am thinking this is pure market manipulation, after this peak in 2017/2018 there where these support levels around 6000, than in the end almost a straight line just above support.
Than suddenly it crashes way below, so a lot people including me, intented it either was slowly recovering or was still in the bear cycle but not at a speed like this.
Also the price of BTC jumps to little after a decline like this, it is more like the decline and than it is sustained.
But i am convinced it will recover, there's to much going on in the cryptocurrency space.
Just to make a few examples:
  1. Goldman Sachs one of the biggest investment banks will open a crypto trading desk in the near future.Source: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/06/goldman-sachs-cfo-calls-reports-of-shutting-down-crypto-desk-fake-news.html
  2. Remember the Crypto-vault in switzerland, where probably for million if not billion dollars worth of bitcoin is stored.Source: https://qz.com/1103310/photos-the-secret-swiss-mountain-bunker-where-millionaires-stash-their-bitcoins/
But with a decline like this, there are also coming some positives.
  1. You have the chance if you bought cryptocurrency for a higher price, to decrease your dollar average drastically.
But never put in to much, if you have let say 100 dollars, it's better to buy 4 x 25 dollars than all at once, don't be in a hurry.
  1. There's probably coming a whole new audience, that are going to see chances and will buy cryptocurrency.
And the crypto-community will become bigger.
  1. Also have a close look to the wealth-distribution charts, the ones with a very large wallet, probably will sell a x percentage of their funds, and smaller investors pick that up, making it better distributed, what in the long term provide for more liquidity.
Is my opinion changed about Viacoin with the recent price changes?
Not at all, 90% of my holdings are in Viacoin.Because it has all the features, what i think are important.
Also i am realy thrilled to see when market recovery occurs, how fast viacoin will recover, if my thought about no inflation is right, viacoin should recover faster than others.
Because with cryptocurrency that have a higher inflation, the miners have much more to sell, before the price will increase.
But that aside.
I am convinced people who have invested or received Viacoin from friends or whatever, are going to stick with it.
It's a great working product, easy to use, sending and receiving is almost instant without using LN and the android copay wallet is ready to use within 2 minutes.
A big plus for me is also that it is trading on Binance one of the biggest exchanges in the world, and with a BNB trading pair, which not all coins have !
And patiently waiting for all the updates that are coming like:
The lightning network what is going to be released in the near future, also the anonymous samourai wallet.
And a lot more !
Few examples: Styx anonymous transactions - Schnorr signatures - MAST - Smart contracts - Submarine swaps - Colored coins
But we will see how thing will turn out.
Thanks for reading and i will see you next time in what market conditions that may be !
Bye

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For some more great introductory videos check out Andreas Antonopoulos's YouTube playlists, he is probably the best bitcoin educator out there today. Also have to give mention to James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Lots of additional video resources can be found at the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
  • Limited Supply - There will only ever be 21,000,000 bitcoins created and they are issued in a predictable fashion, you can view the inflation schedule here. Once they are all issued Bitcoin will be truly deflationary. The halving countdown can be found here.
  • Open source - Bitcoin code is fully auditable. You can read the source code yourself here.
  • Accountable - The public ledger is transparent, all transactions are seen by everyone.
  • Decentralized - Bitcoin is globally distributed across thousands of nodes with no single point of failure and as such can't be shut down similar to how Bittorrent works.
  • Censorship resistant - No one can prevent you from interacting with the bitcoin network and no one can censor, alter or block transactions that they disagree with, see Operation Chokepoint.
  • Push system - There are no chargebacks in bitcoin because only the person who owns the address where the bitcoins reside has the authority to move them.
  • Low fee - Transactions fees can vary between a few cents and a few dollars depending on network demand and how much priority you wish to assign to the transaction. Most wallets calculate the fee automatically but you can view current fees here.
  • Borderless - No country can stop it from going in/out, even in areas currently unserved by traditional banking as the ledger is globally distributed.
  • Trustless - Bitcoin solved the Byzantine's Generals Problem which means nobody needs to trust anybody for it to work.
  • Pseudonymous - No need to expose personal information when purchasing with cash or transacting.
  • Secure - Encrypted cryptographically and can’t be brute forced or confiscated with proper key management such as hardware wallets.
  • Programmable - Individual units of bitcoin can be programmed to transfer based on certain criteria being met
  • Nearly instant - From a few seconds to a few minutes depending on need for confirmations. After a few confirmations transactions are irreversible.
  • Peer-to-peer - No intermediaries with a cut, no need for trusted third parties.
  • Portable - Bitcoins are digital so they are easier to move than cash or gold. They can even be transported by simply remembering a string of words for wallet recovery.
  • Scalable - Each bitcoin is divisible down to 8 decimals allowing it to grow in value while still accommodating micro-transactions.
  • Designed Money - Bitcoin was created to fit all the fundamental properties of money better than gold or fiat
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here. Scaling resources here, and of course the whitepaper that started it all.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com and Howtobuybitcoin.io are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also, check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Bank Transfer Credit / Debit card Cash
Coinbase Coinbase LocalBitcoins
Gemini Bitstamp LibertyX
GDAX Bitit Mycelium LocalTrader
Bitstamp Cex.io BitQuick
Kraken CoinMama WallofCoins
Xapo BitcoinOTC
Cex.io
itBit
Bitit
Bitsquare
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Cashila or Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
  • If you prefer to "Be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, there are many software wallet options here. If you want easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices, then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor or Ledger is recommended. A more advanced option is to secure them yourself using paper wallets generated offline. Some popular mobile and desktop options are listed below and most are cross platform.
Android iOs Desktop
Mycelium BreadWallet Electrum
CoPay AirBitz Armory
  • If you prefer to let third party "Bitcoin banks" manage your coins, try Coinbase or Xapo but be aware you may not be in control of your private keys in which case you would have to ask permission to access your funds and be exposed to third party risk.
Another interesting use case for physical storage/trans...

Сервис "калькулятор"

http://preev.com Полезно, если необходимо посчитать конвертацию. Например, кто то хочет оплату в биткойне, но говорит сумму в долларах.

Как защитить свои средства?

  1. Использование HD адреса. Такие клиенты (кошельки) как Electrum создают множество биткойн адресов на основе одного, главного, мастер адреса. Из одного вытекают все множество остальных, иерархия. Это дает удобство, т.к теперь достаточно знать всего один ключ! И в любое время, всегда, можно из него восстановить все свои адреса.
  2. Использование seed. Seed переводится как "зерно", "семя". Эта технология позволяет представить длинную цепочку из цифр и букв, а именно так выглядит ключ биткойна, в виде ряда простых слов. Что очень упрощает его запись, или запоминание. Это так же используется в Electrum.
  3. Технология мультиподписи. Это простой, и эффективный способ защититься от кражи биткойнов. Суть заключается в том, что для отправки таранзакции, ее необходимо подтвердить двумя подписями. Например, один кошелек используем на смартфоне, другой на ноутбуке. Для того, чтоб украсть биткойны, прийдется получить доступ сразу к двум девайсам, что весьма сложно. Что может быть проще и надежнее этих методик для управления финансами? Золоту сложно конкурировать по этой части с биткойном.

Ограниченная эмиссия

В централизованных экономиках валюта выпускается центральным банком в том количестве, соразмерно с количеством производимых во всей экономике товаров и услуг для стабилизации цен. Денежная масса обычных денег контролируется центральным банком. В России ЦБ РФ увеличивает денежную базу путём выпуска валюты, и увеличивая денежную массу, в процессе под названием Количественное смягчение.
В полностью децентрализованной монетарной системе, центральный аппарат регулирующий монетарной базой заменяется программным обеспечением запрещающим любое человеческое вмешательство в эмиссию. В этом случае эмиссия контролируется криптографическим алгоритмом который следует чётким правилам в одно-ранговой peer-to-peer (P2P) сети. Этот алгоритм определяет, с какой частотой, в какое конкретное время и в каком количестве будут появляются денежные единицы. Любые попытки изменить (или взломать) количество выпуска несогласованное с правилами всей сети будет отвергаться криптографически любым компьютером благодаря возможности проверки транзакций без наличия необходимости синхронизироваться со всей сетью.
Валюта с ограниченной эмиссией
Биткоины создаются каждый раз когда пользователь находит новый блок. Частота создания блоков является постоянной: 6 штук в час. Количество выпущенных Биткоинов в блоке уменьшается геометрически, с сокращением на 50% каждые 4 года. В результате алгоритм имеет чёткий расписанный график по которому всего существующих Биткоинов никогда не будет больше 21 миллиона http://www.bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3366.msg47522#msg47522 Ограничение в 21 миллион. Расписание выпуска "21 миллиона" биткоинов включает в себя: 4-года выпуска Биткоинов определённого количества / уменьшение этого количества в два раза.
Изначально такое математическим обоснованием выбора такого количества Биткоинов было примерное соответствие скорости появления на свет золота в противовес потребности человечества в этом золоте. Пользователей которые используют компьютерные устройства для подтверждения транзакций называют Майнерами.
Прирост Биткоинов в краткосрочной перспективе
Эта таблица отображает количество Биткоинов, которые появятся на свет в ближайшем будущем. График рассчитан хронологически по блокам в ''Годах'', и его точность может незначительно расходиться по временным рамкам.

Дефляция
В связи с тем что количество единиц Биткоина невозможно увеличить, валюта начнёт претерпевать серьёзную дефляцию если станет широко используемой. Кейнезианские экономисты давно спорят над тем, что Дефляционная спираль плоха для экономического роста, потому что больше стимулирует откладывать, а не тратить деньги инвестируя их в бизнес создавая рабочие места. Австрийские школы мысли отвергают подобные виды критики, заявляя что по мере возникновения дефляции на всех уровнях производства, предприниматели и инвесторы извлекут из этого выгоду. В результате соотношения расходов и доходов останутся такими же, поменяв лишь размах капиталов. Другими словами, в дефляционной среде, товары и услуги будут стоить дешевле, в то же время уменьшатся расходы на их производство пропорционально, но не затрагивая спрос. Ценовая дефляция будет поощрять людей откладывать — следственно количество сохранённых средств — будут вести к ещё большему размаху капитала и создаст тот самый необходимый стимул предпринимателям инвестировать средства в мировое производство.

Кодекс биткойнера. Добавляйте свои пункты

В результате оффлайн общения с одним из постоянных посетителей нашей реддит-ветки, появилась идея создать кодекс настоящего биткойнера!
Предлагаю накидать свои варианты что должен делать или иметь человек, чтобы называться биткойнером.
Позже сделаем тест и сверстаем памятку которую будем дополнять.

What can we do to encourage businesses and wallet devs to support segwit?

There was real fast increase in Segwit transactions a few weeks ago, but since then the growth seems to have slowed. You can see the history here: http://segwit.party/charts/#
Xmas is coming and bunch of new users are joining the Bitcoin ecosystem. We could really use more transactions per block, even though the mempool is relatively under control for now: http://core.jochen-hoenicke.de/queue/#30d
So, what can we do to encourage businesses and wallet developers to implement segwit addresses. It would help bitcoin users to lower fees, and the network as a whole by increasing the number of transactions processed per block, but what's in it for the coinbases, bitfinexes, and bitpays (including copay wallet) of the world?

07-12 23:56 - 'Here's why most Bitcoiners don't have sex' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/XfsMonsta removed from /r/Bitcoin within 118-123min

'''
If you are using iOS, have you ever asked yourself "Why in a new blockchain.info web wallet has removed "Address Book" feature, where I used to store my BTC-address bookmarks so conveniently? There is no address book in iOS either." BTC Bookmarks in blockchain.info wallet are absent both in web-interface in mobile wallets. I'm not even mentioning how horrible their new wallet are, and how they already ruthlessly prohibiting access from old wallets. I miss old blockchain.info and good old times.
Don't even try to recommend me wallets like Jaxx (which isn't convenient, and slow and doesn't even have a QR reader for private keys and makes me feel insecure), Mycelium (which isn't supported by my iPhone 4S, 5, 6 - no Mycelium in my app store), Breadwallet (because its ugly and also has a incompatible seed), Copay (because its always so slow and has incompatible seeds with other wallets which makes me feel insecure)
Edit: This post made me think about all existing alternatives for Blockchain.info, and that's why I made my little attempt to create a comparison chart about all Mobile Bitcoin wallets for iOS
So even made my own chart representing my horrible life of not being able to recommend even 1 iOS bitcoin wallet: [link]1
Also you could contribute by editing this chart in Google Spreadsheets (if you want, feel free to add other wallets for iOS): [link]2
I made this chart only for iOS, because currently only iOS user has a very bad choice for wallets. Android Bitcoin wallets isn't perfect too, but at least you can somewhat use them, unlike iOS, where there is not even a single secure enough wallet which you can use for everyday life and small purchases for a regular people like my sister (not even talking about mother)
P.S. Most of us, are likely are not going to have sex, because iOS is a choice #1 for females, and they feel weird when you coming with geek advice like "I can teach you Bitcoin, but buy Android", or "you can learn how to use several Bitcoin wallets in iOS to transact like everyone else on Android", or "Let me teach you how to sign up on some shitty centralized web-site exchange where I will send your first Bitcoins... Oh, sorry, you have lack of skills of using your mobile banking in fiat, which is required in this web-site, so Bitcoin probably is not for you"
