What is bitcoin?
While much of the world is still busy playing around with physical money, there is a new currency on the web called bit coin that has become a popular alternative to other forms of currency. The bit coin payment process is easy. It is also extremely secure. Paying with bit coin allows for people to engage in truly private transactions on the web. Forget needing to make payments through middle men. It's not even necessary to involve one's bank to make a bit coin transaction happen. Aside from being a type of Internet currency, bit coin is not vulnerable to the usual bank practices of currency manipulation. Rather, specialized coding procedures are used to ensure the stability of bit coin and prevent these manipulations from occurring. Now anyone can use this decentralized currency. All that a person needs to get started is a computer or similar smart device that can access the Internet.
Why use bit coin instead of other conventional payment options?
* The unique coding method, called a block chain, employed in a bit coin transaction makes it next to impossible for third party entities to hack into and follow your transactions. This is a nice way to keep other people's prying eyes out of your business, even government entities.
* It is not only a safer way to send money across the Internet, but it saves the purchaser money to do so. This is because you are not forced to incur any third party fees, such as with other online payment methods.
