Bitcoin Newcomers FAQ - Please read!

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.
It all started with the release of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper however that will probably go over the head of most readers so we recommend the following videos for a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Some other great resources include Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series.
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute.
Some Bitcoin statistics can be found here and here. Developer resources can be found here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here.
Potential upcoming protocol improvements and scaling resources here and here.
The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!)

Key properties of Bitcoin

Where can I buy bitcoins?

Bitcoin.org and BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (even just a few dollars worth) 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.
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use 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.
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 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.
Google Auth Authy OTP Auth
Android Android N/A
iOS iOS iOS

Watch out for scams

As mentioned above, Bitcoin is decentralized, which by definition means there is no official website or Twitter handle or spokesperson or CEO. However, all money attracts thieves. This combination unfortunately results in scammers running official sounding names or pretending to be an authority on YouTube or social media. Many scammers throughout the years have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Websites like bitcoin(dot)com and the btc subreddit are active scams. Almost all altcoins (shitcoins) are marketed heavily with big promises but are really just designed to separate you from your bitcoin. So be careful: any resource, including all linked in this document, may in the future turn evil. Don't trust, verify. Also as they say in our community "Not your keys, not your coins".

Where can I spend bitcoins?

Check out spendabit or bitcoin directory for millions of merchant options. Also you can spend bitcoin anywhere visa is accepted with bitcoin debit cards such as the CashApp card. Some other useful site are listed below.

Still have mining questions? The crew at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.
If you want to contribute to the bitcoin network by hosting the blockchain and propagating transactions you can run a full node using this setup guide. If you would prefer to keep it simple there are several good options. You can view the global node distribution here.

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
bitcoin BTC 1 bitcoin one bitcoin is equal to 100 million satoshis
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin used as default unit in recent Electrum wallet releases
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin (μBTC)
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $10000 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

r/Bitcoin recap - January 2018

Hi Bitcoiners!
I’m back with the thirteenth monthly Bitcoin news recap. I must say it's becoming pretty hard to select just 1 or 2 stories per day, too much is going on!
For those unfamiliar, each day I pick out the most popularelevant/interesting stories in Bitcoin and save them. At the end of the month I release them in one batch, to give you a quick (but not necessarily the best) overview of what happened in the Bitcoin space over the past month.
You can see recaps of the previous months on Bitcoinsnippets.com

I seriously can’t believe all of this stuff happened in ONE month.

The next year in bitcoin... What are your predictions?

As in development of the technology, as opposed to price.
A few off the top of my head:
  1. Lightning network rolls out in tandem with blockstack providing a new suite of Layer 2 "http://" blockchain solutions.
  2. Microsoft integrates Passport logins via blockstack and secure, decentralised identity services finally become a reality, propped up by the 1bn Windows users worldwide. Google, Facebook, AirBnB and other tech giants quickly follow suit and blockstack identity logins become the norm for users across the net, similar to how facebook connect took off.
  3. We start to see the first consumer devices equipped with mining chips, beginning with heaters, aircon units and lightbulbs.
  4. With (opt-in) digital history linked to blockstack logins, people become more aware of their digital 'karma' as it will be used as a measure of trust when joining new networks, similar to how old Web of Trust systems worked and how 'social capital' on twitter / linked.in are used today as an indication of trustworthiness.
  5. Bitnation and other decentralised governance platforms work with the UN and other agencies to help provide identity and banking services to those currently unable to access the world economy. Similar to how they already did this with bitcoin debit cards / blockchain identity registration during the Syrian refugee crisis. Bitnation also roll-out decentralised voting platforms for localised governance pilot schemes (again tied to blockstack logins). Digital passports / visas are now becoming a reality.
  6. Decentralised crypto exchanges, crowdfund and micro loan platforms begin rolling and we see UBI trials and 'global rent schemes' (similar to YC and other pilots being run in SF) now gaining real prominence via various custom sidechain initiatives. Speculation and volatility within the crypto space is further reduced as a result of exchanges no longer being required to get hold of crypto.
  7. Rootstock and other smart contract platforms begin to gain prominence and everything from realestate to medical and insurance services become smarter, cheaper, faster and more secure to deploy on the blockchain.

r/bitcoin recap - March 2017

Hi Bitcoiners!
I’m back with the third monthly Bitcoin news recap.
For those unfamiliar, each day I pick out the most popularelevant/interesting stories in bitcoin and save them. At the end of the month I release them in one batch, to give you a quick (but not necessarily the best) overview of what happened in bitcoin over the past month.
Now archived on Bitcoinsnippets.com
As promised, I launched a website as an archive, where I post the version with links to the original posts and discussions so this post doesn't get auto-moderated. Special thanks goes out to Bitttburger for thinking of the name Bitcoin Snippets.
I went back in time and made an overview for December 2016 too. I’ll probably make recaps of 1-2 previous months for each month I progress, so that I eventually end up with everything in a few years.
Starting from this month, I’m going to cut back on including memes, there’s too many and they overtake the interesting news.
A recap of March 2017 in bitcoin

Thanks to everyone who contributed to Bitcoin in a positive way this month!

Log of AMA with coindash - @alon (Alon) CEO from CoinDash.io

boldninja Let us all give a warm welcome to @alon (Alon) CEO from CoinDash.io. AMA can begin, give him some time to catch on with questions and answers.
bangomatic :clapping:
alon Hi Everyone!
jakethepanda :clapping:
tranzer hi @alon
alon Great to be here!
arigard All this BTC shit is just a storm in a teacup anyway
jakethepanda Hey @alon
dr10 Welcome
tranzer @alon how does coindash compare to Iconomi and their user-based funds you'll be able to invest / copy?
jakethepanda On top of that question, include Melonport.
5eb6o Sorry as I said I am drunk.. and I welcome everyone.. but why coindash? I mean isn't it pretty close to dash coin... or I am missing something... why not something unique
joelafc LOL
darius sup alon
welcome to the thunderdome
alon Hi, i think Melonport and ICONOMI are more of an investment instrument.. they provide a tool for people to invest in crypto assets. We are more focused on answering what peopel whould invest in and when. For that end we also intend to integrate with both of them because there is a good chance they will become a good investment instrument
tranzer are there any partnership plans already in the making with them?
dr10 So its more like a Follow Trader platform, where you do the moves that successful traders do?
alon @tranzer i can't comment on that for the next 24H :slightly_smiling_face:
ben123 Got it
alon @dr10 social trading is a great means for reducing friction for inexperienced and new traders, making crytpo trading more accessible
jakethepanda Can you briefly explain how the coin fits in to the platform?
darius ^ this
dr10 Is Coindash its own blockchain or based ontop of another?
boldninja Where do CoinDash tokens come in play? I mean where will they play a role, like paying someone subscription for private portfolio c/p or tipping or something different?
jake beat me to it :smile:
ben123 I think that's what I read about them
alon @jakethepanda we see it as fuel for using various features on the platform. If you follow someone and copy his investments you will pay a fee for that ... that fee is payed with the CDT token
@dr10 we connect to the various blockchains/ exchanges
ben123 How will you be able to compete against enigma? It's similar to your concept and they seem very promising.
tranzer When will the copy and paste functionality be introduced into your dashboard, product?
dr10 so you are your own blockchain? didnt get that
alon @tranzer we are expected to release copy-ICO towards the end of the year... until then we will work hard on the dashboard and other investor exploration (we will be rolling versions fairly fast once every 2-3 weeks)
@dr10 we are not
darius So the platform need it’s own token to tip someone? Sounds like you coulda built an app without it’s own token tbh.
its*
tranzer Are you in the talks with any of the exchange yet? Probably we'll see you on Bittrex correct?
alon not tip but reward top investors who get followed.. also the followers get financial benefit from that so its natural they will pay for it
@tranzer yes we in talks with some exchanges
jakethepanda The beta currently only allows for a link to an ETH address. Will be able to link say an ARK address, eventually?
darius Do you mean top investors are rewarded by the platform with your token? How would that work, is that based off how long they hold a top position?
alon @jakethepanda we already integrated various blockcahins and exchanges.. we will start rolling them soon
numba1enigma How do risk adjusted returns fitinto all this
alon @darius they are rewarded by the people following them as fees.
@numba1enigma that an important indicator to understand how your portfolio performs against the market. This will roll out soon alongside other indicators
darius Oh so this is taking private paid advise discords/slacks and putting them all on a platform.
Clever
numba1enigma Tell me what a sharp ratio is?
alon @darius imagine you can see the performances of the bet traders in the space, follow them and copy their investments... this is what social trading is
numba1enigma The following and payment mechanism in terms of sharp ratios
Roi of two managera without sharp ratio considerations is worthless
tranzer There is bonus in first week - 30% how will that be awarded will first week deposits count for example if you invest 1 ETH count as 1.3 ETH?
jakethepanda On top of @numba1enigma question, what kind of risk analytics will be on the platform?
alon first day is 30%... you will get immediatley 30% additional tokens
numba1enigma Byw the way iconomi and co foundit didn't know what a sharp ratio was until two months ago
alon @numba1enigma i'm not sure i follow... various indicators effect the performance and risk level of the investors. Risk adjusted returns could very much reflect how truly profitable that investor is and lets you decide how much risk you want to take by following him
darius Who are your competitors? I know there’s a platform that does this but I can’t think of their name for the life of me
alon @darius you probably are talking about eToro maybe?
numba1enigma You should take a look at markov analytic tools to bucket mutual fund returnes to rank performance
It would be helpful to you
ben123 Enigma ico is coming out in August and they seem to be a competitor also.
tranzer How many users are there already using your platform currently? How much joining lately on daily base?
jakethepanda How does fiat integration figure into the platform? Trading directly from the platform will be available?
alon @tranzer we opened the beta 11 days ago. Now we have 2.5K users with 200-250 added daily
@jakethepanda thats something we are interested in but will come in a later change. It fits very well in our mission to make crypto trading more accessible to the public

ben123 Seems interesting
jakethepanda I noticed that RSk is one of your partners. Will CDT also be on Rootstock?
alon We did a POC integration with RSK with the CoinDash platform a few months ago... more will be announced in the coming month (very interesting stuff)
jakethepanda Interesting
tranzer alon would you consider something like that with Ark as well? Seems like a nice fit.
alon @tranzer definitely!
jakethepanda I noticed there isn't anyone on the team with a quant finance background. Who is developing the risk/performance analytics?
alon you should learn more about Adam and Ram.. both with a lot of experience in finance (Adam opened eToro's offices in Shanghai). Most the team has years of experience in crypto trading as well
tranzer will you be able to leverage coindash coins against some investors and use other coins to trade if that makes sense?
jakethepanda Since many people in crypto are new to trading and investing will there be tutorials and investment education tools? Based on questions noobs ask they need this. (edited)
jarunik I still don't really get how adding the coin to the mix brings any advantage compared to other social trading platforms. What do I miss?
alon yes there will be tutorials and mostly beautifully made UX/ UI
tranzer how are tokens going to be saved? Will this be centralized? I mean in order to copy someone you'll need to move coins within platform no?
alon the CoinDash Token enable us to fund our activity and create an amazing community around the product who have a huge incentive to help (in our case the investors are also the end users). We tie the token to the platform so its success is also the success of the token.
so for the copy-ICO feature foe example we use smart contracts
alon uploaded and commented on this image: Pasted image at 2017_07_14 11_22 AM.png 1 Comment
BTW :slightly_smiling_face:
mike Nice looking announcement
jarunik You could just do that with a normal crowdfunding ... what incentives give the coins exactly ? (edited)
jakethepanda Will there be a mobile app?
alon yes
tranzer Where do you get current prices from CMC or have your own service?
jakethepanda The beta app doesn't seem very social. How will the future version of the app change to be more of a social platform? (edited)
alon from CryptoCompare curently
next step will be the ability to discover other investors and follow them
darius @jarunik This way they don’t have to go through VC’s to raise a $12 MM seed fund. Use the hype of ICO’s to raise it instead because people want to profit from their coin.
alon the dashboard is the data layer on top of which the social feature will come
tranzer so if 12m is raised in first day its over no additional time and some other weird rules like we have seen with few recent icos?
jakethepanda Can you discuss any of the partnerships on the web page? Antshares or Wings?
One concern I have is that whitelisted addresses are going to buy up the entire offering. Do you have any mechanisms in place to avoid this?
alon Wings we did the forecasting and used some of their tech. AntShares, Tony the CEO invested and is our advisor
jakethepanda Thanks
alon i don't think they will buy it all... its a way for us to say thank you to the people who supported us, its not a long list. 250 people list
jakethepanda You would be surprised how much money is floating around crypto. It only takes one or two whales in the 250.
darius lol
jakethepanda I can think of 10 people in crypto that can blow a big dent in that cap.
Just saying
alkar Can my profile be private if ever I don't want to share my portfolio
alon i am too but most of those people gave us huge help the past year... people who were our first social media users.. beta testers stuff like that
@alkar yes, it can be totally private
darius That’s promising
can you answer @tranzer’s question “so if 12m is raised in first day its over no additional time and some other weird rules like we have seen with few recent icos?”
alon no weird stuff... very simple ICO :slightly_smiling_face:
guys my phone might die any second so if i'm cut off its ebecause of that
tranzer that is good to hear, didn't like how some were handling recent icos, extending time, adding some last minute changes, ...
jakethepanda @alon The project looks amazing. I'm out of questions for now. I will get you in your slack if I think of more.
boldninja Any last questions for @alon as his battery might die out?
jarunik Do you have a battery bank? :smile:
jakethepanda I think it died
boldninja Can you sell battery bank energy back into the network? :thinking_face:
alon No dead yet ;)
jakethepanda One more question. Is that Warren Buffet on your web page?
On the product page.
alon Ahah might be a caricature(my fav investor)
jakethepanda Haha
Everyone can join coindash slack https://www.coindash.io/slack/
boldninja OK I think no more questions are coming - I'd like to thank alon for taking his time to do this AMA and I wish him a good and successful launch of ICO and product later on. Hope we'll be able to cooperate further down the line. You are always welcomed here at Ark.
darius Thank you! Good luck
jakethepanda Thanks @alon
tranzer thank you for answering my questions @alon - good luck!
alon Thank you guys! Hope to see you as users of our platform

Something is Brewing Under the Surface in $BTC...

Bitcoin Price Update for September 15, 2016
Market Commentary (BTC):
Once again we are left with little to talk about in terms of price action in the bitcoin markets given they continue to stagnate in a contracting range which now sits between 605 - 610 $. While this may be frustrating for shorter term traders, we think it is setting the market up for a much more substantial move as we creep into autumn. Also, despite a fairly broad range of spot prices on the major BTC exchanges, the majority of them are currently higher than the Stamp price (even BTC-e) which confirms our upside bias for the time being. Throw in what are some approaching positive fundamentals in the form of SegWit via 0.13.1, Lightning Network developments, and RootStock for smart contracts, and we think the market is getting primed for a test of the upper 600's $ in the not too distant future.
Not only are the fundamentals turning slightly more positive over the next few months, but the technicals are also telling us that something is brewing under the surface. We can see on the 12-hour chart below that while price remains in the large symmetrical triangle consolidation, the failure to breakout did not lead to a major selloff down to the lower ascending trendline. Also notice that SCMR is still not painting red candles despite some minor price pressure and somewhat bearish near term market structure, and no new dynamic support is building while strong resistance still hangs overhead.
Moving on to momentum and volume we can see that Willy is finally coming back down while RSI holds the centerline, MACD is flatlining along with price, and PPO is back to neutral from slightly overbought. Additionally, the 9/18 EMA cross is now neutral as well, and the 200-period SMA remains in an uptrend but will continue to act as near term resistance due to positioning. As far as volume goes, the A/D line is still steadily climbing to the upside, exchange volumes are falling again, and volume profile remains porous between 580 - 600 $, as well as below 565 $. While we do not want to read too much into this considering what we see as an emerging bullish setup, it is important to note that a selloff down into our ST ProTrade buy zone is still a definite possibility.
With that said, we still want to remain firm in our VST PT long off of the 596 $ level along with our breakeven stoploss in order to manage risk in this environment. While we do not want to reload there before unloading our current position, we would be willing to add to the MT PT down in our ST buy zone, so we will be watching this closely as we head into the weekend. Ideally, price would rally to test the 620 - 630 $ area again which would give us a chance to exit the VST trade, followed by a retracement down into the 570 - 600 $ range going into next week which could then reverse quickly and head up into the mid to high 600's $ (MT OTE short zone) in fairly short order. This may be asking for a bit too much, however this is the roadmap we are traveling with right now so take it for what its worth.
GLGT!

Something is Brewing Under the Surface in $BTC...

Bitcoin Price Update for September 15, 2016
Market Commentary (BTC):
Once again we are left with little to talk about in terms of price action in the bitcoin markets given they continue to stagnate in a contracting range which now sits between 605 - 610 $. While this may be frustrating for shorter term traders, we think it is setting the market up for a much more substantial move as we creep into autumn. Also, despite a fairly broad range of spot prices on the major BTC exchanges, the majority of them are currently higher than the Stamp price (even BTC-e) which confirms our upside bias for the time being. Throw in what are some approaching positive fundamentals in the form of SegWit via 0.13.1, Lightning Network developments, and RootStock for smart contracts, and we think the market is getting primed for a test of the upper 600's $ in the not too distant future.
Not only are the fundamentals turning slightly more positive over the next few months, but the technicals are also telling us that something is brewing under the surface. We can see on the 12-hour chart below that while price remains in the large symmetrical triangle consolidation, the failure to breakout did not lead to a major selloff down to the lower ascending trendline. Also notice that SCMR is still not painting red candles despite some minor price pressure and somewhat bearish near term market structure, and no new dynamic support is building while strong resistance still hangs overhead.
Moving on to momentum and volume we can see that Willy is finally coming back down while RSI holds the centerline, MACD is flatlining along with price, and PPO is back to neutral from slightly overbought. Additionally, the 9/18 EMA cross is now neutral as well, and the 200-period SMA remains in an uptrend but will continue to act as near term resistance due to positioning. As far as volume goes, the A/D line is still steadily climbing to the upside, exchange volumes are falling again, and volume profile remains porous between 580 - 600 $, as well as below 565 $. While we do not want to read too much into this considering what we see as an emerging bullish setup, it is important to note that a selloff down into our ST ProTrade buy zone is still a definite possibility.
With that said, we still want to remain firm in our VST PT long off of the 596 $ level along with our breakeven stoploss in order to manage risk in this environment. While we do not want to reload there before unloading our current position, we would be willing to add to the MT PT down in our ST buy zone, so we will be watching this closely as we head into the weekend. Ideally, price would rally to test the 620 - 630 $ area again which would give us a chance to exit the VST trade, followed by a retracement down into the 570 - 600 $ range going into next week which could then reverse quickly and head up into the mid to high 600's $ (MT OTE short zone) in fairly short order. This may be asking for a bit too much, however this is the roadmap we are traveling with right now so take it for what its worth.
GLGT!
