What is it?

Bitcoin is the first global cryptocurrency which enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. It doesn’t matter if the person is standing next to you or if they are across the planet.


Bitcoin uses a new type of peer-to-peer technology called blockchain to operate with no central authority. Managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network.

Like cash?

Anything you can do with old money you can do with Bitcoin. It can do many things old money cannot such as being sent instantly anywhere across the world just like email. It’s money, just a better version of it.

Ok, it’s better money, but is it safe?

Bitcoin is the first financial application of blockchain technologya superior record keeping infrastructure.

Safety in Numbers

Users verify the history of all transactions constantly and create new bitcoins by having computers solve math problems that are impossible to counterfeit but easy to verify.

Tamper Proof

Since Bitcoin transactions are seen by the entire network they are secure, irreversible, and do not contain customers’ sensitive or personal information.

Ok, so how do I…?

We know, at this point you probably have a million question but hold tight!

it’s Valuable too

Bitcoin is a combination of a precious commodity (like gold), a spendable currency (like dollars, euro, or yen), and a technology (like email). It’s scarce, useful, and impossible to counterfeit.


Bitcoins are stored in a digital wallet app on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Sending Bitcoin is as easy as sending an email! They can be purchased at a currency exchange just like American Dollars or British Pounds.
