What is BitCoin

Recommended Posts

What is Bitcoin ?

Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems.

Bitcoin’s most important characteristic, and the thing that makes it different to conventional money, is that it is decentralized. No single institution controls the bitcoin network. This puts some people at ease, because it means that a large bank can’t control their money.

bitcoin is created digitally, by a community of people that anyone can join. Bitcoins are ‘mined’, using computing power in a distributed network. This network also processes transactions made with the virtual currency, effectively making bitcoin its own payment network.

The bitcoin protocol – the rules that make bitcoin work – say that only 21 million bitcoins can ever be created by miners. However, these coins can be divided into smaller parts.


What are its characteristics?

Bitcoin has several important features that set it apart from government-backed currencies.

  1. It's decentralized - The bitcoin network isn’t controlled by one central authority. Every machine that mines bitcoin and processes transactions makes up a part of the network, and the machines work together. And if some part of the network goes offline for some reason, the money keeps on flowing.
  2. It's easy to set up - Conventional banks make you jump through hoops simply to open a bank account. Setting up merchant accounts for payment is another Kafkaesque task, beset by bureaucracy. However, you can set up a bitcoin address in seconds, no questions asked, and with no fees payable.
  3. It's anonymous - Well, kind of. Users can hold multiple bitcoin addresses, and they aren’t linked to names, addresses, or other personally identifying information.
  4. It's completely transparent…bitcoin stores details of every single transaction that ever happened in the network in a huge version of a general ledger, called the blockchain. The blockchain tells all. If you have a publicly used bitcoin address, anyone can tell how many bitcoins are stored at that address. They just don’t know that it’s yours.
  5. Transaction fees are miniscule - Your bank may charge you a fee for international transfers. Bitcoin doesn’t.
  6. It’s fast - You can send money anywhere and it will arrive minutes later, as soon as the bitcoin network processes the payment.
  7. It’s non-refundable - When your bitcoins are sent, there’s no getting them back, unless the recipient returns them to you. They’re gone forever.

a good post .. There are many advantages of using Bitcoin as a substitute for online money transactions. Bitcoin is a global exchange rate, meaning Bitcoin is not owned by any country, making it easy to use anywhere in the world.

      Simply put, trading bots are computer programs that autonomously pick signals and trends and then execute trades. Unlike the regular homo sapiens that get carried away by emotions, bots are entirely dependent on the data and perform trades seamlessly.
      As an added advantage, the bots help you do your trades even while you are fast asleep with your family. Some bots are programmed to trade on multiple exchanges while some stick to the mentioned platforms only.
      The crypto market has numerous veterans who predict the rise and fall of various coins. The tips and commands they give are called signals which are available online on various platforms. The bots are crafted to pick signals from these specified and trusted market geniuses and carry out trades as pre-directed.
      As humans, we may or may not understand the commands and there are high chances of being influenced by greed or grief.
      Some of the Primary features of the cryptocurrency trading bot?
      Automatic trading
      Obviously, bots have automatic trading capabilities. Yet it is essential to mention here that it is the primary feature of any given trading bot in the crypto field.
      Mirror trading
      The bots should be able to subscribe to the signallers and mirror their commands. With this type of feature, anyone can easily trade cryptocurrencies.
      Short Sell
      The bots should be able to short sell the cryptos so that you can avoid major losses during a bear market and at the same time earn big profits.
      Track and Trade
      The cryptocurrency trading bots must be capable of buying and selling multiple coins simultaneously as the market fluctuation is considerably high in the crypto realm.
      What’s mentioned here is only to give you a skeletal idea of what the bots really are. There is always more information coming. Keep watching this space.
