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".

Keeping up with development trends can make your shop always be liked by customers, so you should never miss these e-commerce development trends.Let’s look at the top 8 ecommerce fads to watch out for in 2021.

1. Voice Business Will Surge.

Individuals are progressively relying upon voice assistant devices like the Amazon.com Mirror with Alexa and the Google Home with Google Aide to do every little thing, from waking them to getting items online. 75% of U.S. houses will have clever speakers by 2025. Voice commerce sales are prepared for to reach $40 billion by 2022.
Another reason why voice commerce gets on the rise is the growing accuracy and also comfort of the innovation. Both Google and also Amazon are pressing regional languages in their virtual aide devices to help customers go shopping even more conveniently.
Consequently, it is necessary to enhance your on-line store for voice search.
Here are four ways to prepare your ecommerce website for voice queries.

2. Omnichannel Buying Will End Up Being the New Normal.

Omnichannel selling refers to supplying consumers a smooth as well as consistent experience throughout channels as well as gadgets.
In a study by HBR (Harvard Service Testimonial), 73% of respondents stated they utilize multiple channels during their purchasing journey. This data is almost 4 years of ages.
With the boost in the adoption of mobile devices and voice aides, I can only imagine that the number of omnichannel consumers will certainly increase a lot more in 2021.
Usage analytics tools like Finteza that give thorough ecommerce analytics to identify client actions and track whatever pertaining to the cash flow. An analytics device of this type aids you assess which items remain in need, monitor your profit and loss, as well as evaluate client commitment. Finteza additionally enables you to develop records for occasions that matter one of the most to your service, such as view items, add to cart, check out progress, as well as checkout success.
These understandings enable you to provide the exact item that your consumers are searching for and also supply a seamless shopping experience.
Below are some even more ways for you to use a seamless omnichannel experience.

3. AI and AR Will Enhance the Ecommerce Experience.

Online sellers will certainly invest $ 7.3 billion on AI by 2022. More than 120,000 shops will certainly be utilizing AR modern technologies to use clients an abundant acquiring experience by 2022.
Expert system (AI) serves as your on-line in-store affiliate by providing customized guidance and recommendations to your clients. AI uses consumers’ past acquisition history and also searching behavior to show them items they are most likely to buy.
Unlike in physical stores, online buyers can not try out or physically inspect the item that they mean to purchase. Augmented truth (AR) assists remove this obstacle by allowing customers see exactly how a particular product would certainly look on them also prior to they purchase the item.
By executing AI and AR in your ecommerce shop, you will likely see a rise in conversions and also a decline in the return price.

4. New Payment Choices Will Certainly Emerge.

Payment alternatives are among the major reasons that clients choose a particular brand. If you don’t offer your customers’ preferred repayment approach, they will not purchase from your ecommerce shop.
As of now, most ecommerce services approve electronic purses (like Google Pay, Samsung or Apple Pay, and also PayPal) besides debit as well as charge card. Cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin, have several advantages for online store proprietors, such as low deal costs and no reverse purchases.
For example, Overstock partnered with Coinbase, a Bitcoin platform, to permit customers to use Bitcoin as a repayment technique.
In 2021, we could see more ecommerce companies will begin approving cryptocurrencies for deals.

How to Make $$ of Bitcoin Halving

Last time I threw somethin up here ya ghosted. I ain't gon trip but hope this wake some ya up.
Bitcoin, however you feel about it (I say imperfect but better than fiat) is halving. If you don't have a coinbase or tzero wallet you can still get a bag.
Robinhood Bitcoin Stocks:
RIOT -
Riot blockchain owns the largest Bitcoin mining farm in North America, facilities in Oklahoma and Upstate NY. They acquired the facility in NY last month as well as bought new gear to keep up with competition as Bitcoin miner rewards half. They are well positioned moving forward to be one of the farms that continue producing Bitcoin.
MOGO -
Canadian financial services firm that allows customers to buy Bitcoin through their app. They have a solid customer base they help with financial wellbeing through tracking debt/spending.
OSTK -
No longer a pennystock but I know some of ya can up ya g. Before CEO Pat Byrnes flamed out he funneled his companies resources into bitcoin/blockchain technology. Tzero is owned by overstock and they are in the process of being approved to not only exchange crypto but regular stocks as well.
OTC stocks (ToS got em)
Grayscale Investments
GBTC, GDLC etc -
Heavy with instutional backing. It's a Bitcoin trust, they own a ethereum trust if that's your thing and then digital cap fund.
Still iffy? Look up Paul Tudor Jones since billionaires are smarter than the rest of the population combined.
I would post sources but ya Google/Yahoo Finance/Reddit/Pocket work the same.
Disclaimer: I am long and own multiple positions on these stocks.
Lastly, I expect Bitcoin to dip sometime over the next week due to coin laundering (deadass, not gonna speak further on it rn). Just a heads up
Edit: Riot operates at the largest Bitcoin mine in a partnership with Coinmint.

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
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

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.
Some great introductions for new users are My first bitcoin, Bitcoin explained and ELI5 Bitcoin. Also, the following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Also have to give mention to 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. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here, here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. Potential upcoming protocol improvements here. Scaling resources here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!), and of course Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper that started it all! :)

Samouari BreadWallet Electrum
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.

Step 1) Read "huge" news 2) Check price 3) Meh.

Loving my bitcoin but this is how I evaluate the hugeness of the news on here. I'm guessing others do the same. Here's some examples:
Meh. Meh. Meh.
It's getting to the point where I'm wondering just how good/bad the news would have to be to make the price budge. And they call it volatile!

It’s pretty clear why “Ravencoin is Soaring” in case you missed it...

Aside from RVN devs killing it like a boss...It wasn’t until recently that Patrick Byrne publicly stated that RVN would be used by TZero (which those who have followed the project already knew to be true) but in the OSTK Earnings Call and in recent Interviews he clearly calls out Ravencoin to be utilized by many of the Medici Ventures companies including TZero.
Overstock March 18 Earnings Call: https://www.google.com/amp/s/seekingalpha.com/amp/article/4249577-overstock-com-inc-ostk-ceo-patrick-byrne-q4-2018-results-earnings-call-transcript
Excerpt of Ravencoin- Patrick Byrne
Thank you. Ravencoin is an open-source project towards which Medici Ventures has been especially supportive by contributing labor and mining. The mining of this coin has spread faster than any coin in history. It's 14 months old, the community is very active. We've been supportive of this open-source movement. And although we only own a single-digit percentage of the coins, -- of Ravencoin, it's not just the value of the coins that we find attractive, it is the elegance and robustness of the Raven protocol for digital assets going forward.
Next, Raven has a role to play in a number of these Medici companies. It's been designed and developed as the perfect protocol for digital assets, has significant advantages over both Bitcoin and Ethereum. I think, you'll be hearing very significant news about Ravencoin shortly, perhaps as early as this week. It plays a role in the number of the companies in which we're involved, like you're seeing in front of you here. If you know the business model of consensus, one could say that Medici Ventures is like has a similar business model but where consensus is purist about using ether, we are not purist about using Ravencoin but there are four or five companies in there, at least, that look like they will be making use of Ravencoin.
And Interview where he talks about Ravencoin and TZero; “Patrick Byrne Discusses Security Token Future, TZERO Updates, Ravencoin, More”
https://thetokenist.io/patrick-byrne-discusses-security-token-future-tzero-updates-ravencoin-more/
Excerpt from article:
“We have twenty different blockchain companies within Medici Ventures — what we are doing, where possible, is leveraging and integrating Ravencoin into these different projects. So for example, we’re invested in an Israeli company that’s doing a blockchain supply chain system for wineries. Ravencoin is the preferred solution for that company. We’re in the same process now with tZERO. tZERO is blockchain agnostic, and Ravencoin won’t be the only chain underlying tZERO, but people will be able to issue security tokens on Ravencoin. You may see it emerge in a number of our projects, like ConsenSys did with Ethereum.”

Will there be another 2017-like crypto pump ever gonna happen again? My rant on the future of crypto, ICOs, and 2018

Background
I've been getting several messages lately inquiring about my old post from which I borrowed $30k to buy ETH back in May: https://np.reddit.com/ethtradecomments/68oshw/just_borrowed_30k_to_buy_eth_stay_tuned_for_the/
I started typing a long response to someone who asked me whether he thinks there's gonna be another opportunity like ETH in the future (from which I made over 100X returns, buying most between $10 and $100, and cashing out 90% at $1000-$1200)...and I realized I typed so much info that it could be worthwhile to share it with the community.
Before I start my rant though... about the loan I had taken out at the time: don't ever invest in more than you're willing to lose.
Opportunities will always come, in one way or another. Today is crypto, yesterday was flipping houses, before that was penny and internet stocks. But from a crypto standpoint, opportunities in this field are gonna be more rare. Bitcoin, ETH, and other large caps coins are probably done for for a while -- they'll go up in the long run but I don't think we'll see another new parabolic rise of 1000+% gains for a long while. People switched to ICOs after seeing some of the 3-10X gains, but the wild west of unregulated ICOs is starting to lose steam, mostly due to regulatory barriers.
Identifying Fundamental Disruptions
I invested in ETH first at $10 and buying all the way up to $100 (the $30k loan got me ETH at $80 each), and while others were selling for 2x flips, I was able to hold it all the way to $1000+. I think this is important to mention in the context of this post because of the necessity to realize the long-term disruption that lays ahead. At the time, I realized that ETH was about to give altcoins/tokens the ability to be speculated on due to their direct utility association in a tech startup's main business mechanism. I firmly believed that ETH should be worth at nearly as much as, if not at least, BTC in market cap because of this. Prior to ETH, it was just Bitcoins and then all clones/shitcoins. ETH gave rise to ICOs and speculative coins that could be assigned potential business value to it, thereby making crypto markets what it is today. Frankly, the entire crypto market owes ETH, and respectfully BTC of course, for what is today. Note though: I rolled the dice big for ETH, but even my $30k investment at the time was only about a quarter of my savings at the time. So again, don't invest in more than you are willing to lose or sleep soundly at night.
The Future: Increasing Regulation
Anyway, turning to the future. Here's what I think is going to happen. SEC is going shutdown alot of ICOs; they are really cracking down on ICOs claiming to be utilities, even if disguised through airdrops or SAFTs. In fact, just today's WSJ news said SEC issued subpoenas to multiple ICOs and have taken interest in SAFTs for so-called utility tokens. Just like the dot-com bubble, 90%+ of these previous ICOs are gonna tank and fail. We're gonna see a massive correction probably later in 2018, when roadmaps with major expected milestones start missing their deadlines, and a domino effect happens when SEC starts really flexing their muscle and forcing exchanges to go into delisting mode (we already are starting to see this with Bittrex).
But a Hidden Opportunity
So about looking for another crypto pump opportunity.... When the culling happens, the survivors are gonna be as follows. Look for US-based ICOs that have been SEC-compliant from the outset, or at least making a strong effort to do so. Having a legal advisor or team member will be big this year. Don't be afraid of lockups or holding periods if it's for the purpose of being SEC compliant (signs are mentions of Reg CF, Reg D, Reg S, and Reg A+ offerings... you could google these keywords with their company name to see if they have a filing record in SEC's database). See if these ICOs and team leaders had a successful and profitable business in the past, or at least spun out of a profitable company. Also, there's way too much bullshit with partnerships, many which are fake or with useless no/name companies. Next, a lot of these open ecosystem platforms rely on partner companies to attract customers -- but why would companies join when there are no customers, and vice versa. It's all bullshit and often pump and dump shilling. What you want is a closed ecosystem (think Apple iOS) to help consumers navigate the business model. An open ecosystem where customers have to attach their own crypto wallet, blah blah blah, yay decentralization, yeah... well that's all never gonna see mass adoption (think Linux... some hardcore advocates exist, but what layperson actually wants to operate command lines or deep menus all day long and accidentally break their system with one wrong syntax). Look how successful Coinbase has become by simplifying crap. Too much shit is focused on the crypto side and it's like a foreign language to mainstream customers who won't touch it with a ten foot pole. Look for ICOs that are consumer focused rather just have solely an ICO page. It's particularly appealing if they have a self-directing strategy in the form of a tangible product they can sell to generate data or transactions in their ecosystem, which would naturally attract additional customers/companies into their platform.
Examples:
These companies with revolutionary ideas, who are making an effort to be legally compliant and also have a tangible product, are the ones that are gonna survive the mass culling of alts and ICOs later this year. If we ever get our first ICO unicorn (from revenue, not pumped market cap of their token), then it will bring truly mainstream recognition of the crypto markets that will give the traditional stock markets a serious run for their money. I'm not talking about less than 1% of the $70 trillion stock market value of the world -- I'm talking like double digit levels of the entire global stock market. And I bet you it will happen. This is the sorting-out phase of the future -- a shift from old world Wall Street-type money to Silicon Valley. Crypto allows direct investments into technology startups, and tokenization of the actual business transaction mechanism cuts down all the traditional valuation crap dealing with public relations and whatever meta valuation factors. If the business is making sales, then the token is worth something, and that's all that matters. If the business is losing sales, then the token is worth less. Straightforward.
When All The Puzzle Pieces Fit Together
Two more things to note. First: If ETH successfully pulls off scaling through sharding/raiden and drastically reduces gas fees through proof of stake, then it will be fit for enterprise use. ETH's stress tested blockchain with upgrades will facilitate real world adoption (Most of these ERC20 platforms are currently not fit for real adoption due to high gas fees and low TPS). Otherwise, consider hedging into alternative smart contract-, high volume-, low cost-capable platforms with implementation documentation (e.g., Stellar) to potentially get some good gains. Second: A lot of these current crypto exchanges are not registered ATS's (alternative trading systems) that are permitted to trade securities by the SEC, so they can only trade utilities. But SEC is cracking down on these fake-utilities and are deeming them all securities... that's gonna leave these exchanges in the dust. So we're seeing big companies entering this space, Overstock building tZero, Circle/Goldman Sachs acquiring Polo, Cobinhood, etc. They are prepping for ATS compliance, and when legal tokenized securities become tradeable, they will be traded on these platforms... not hot messes like Binance. And they will be user friendly -- gateways for mainstream to invest directly in the tokenized assets of a company's core business model. It's all culminating to the survival of legit companies, mainstream adoption, and these are your clues. Enjoy trading shitcoins while they last, but don't get caught with your pants down bagholding them.
Rant over.
TL;DR Look for coins based on fundamentals and legal compliance so they will survive the massive culling in late 2018 when roadmaps don't meet milestone deadlines

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
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:
