Buying Bitcoin - step by step from scratch

Are you interested in buying Bitcoin for pouds, euros, or dollars?

Before you decide to buy Bitcoin (BTC) it’s definitely worth knowing what Bitcoin really is. It is the first electronic currency invented in 2008, based on already known blockchain technology. The creator (creators?) of Bitcoin is not known to this day and hides under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. In 2009 the first transactions using this cryptocurrency were registered and the first Bitcoin exchange – Bitcoin Market – was created.

Although it is obvious that buying Bitcoin was not easy then. It was much easier to just start mining it than to buy it on the stock exchange. Despite the fact that Bitcoin is the first and oldest digital currency, it is still considered to be one of the best cryptocurrencies, rankings that we publish regularly confirm this. Maybe the oldest digital currency is not at the forefront or even in the TOP 5 best cryptocurrencies, however, the mere fact of being in these rankings confirms its quality.

Be careful!

When you see posts like “to the moon” or that “the rocket has flown away” or “the train is leaving the station” … be careful. It is probably too late to buy Bitcoin or another electronic currencies. It is worth waiting one, three, or six months, or even a year or two for the biggest holes and support lines. I always set myself only slightly above the lowest, more or less sure support lines. This makes buying Bitcoin a bit more reliable in the context of profits. The last such support were USD 3500-3800.

The use of Bitcoin payments is increasingly widespread in many industries. We invite you to read the article about where you can pay with Bitcoin. There is a growing interest of many corporations using blockchain networks, it seems that there is still a lot ahead of us. An interesting fact is that Bitcoin payments were possible for some hotels or services during the Football World Cup in Russia. Although in recent years buying Bitcoin (BTC) has become easier and more popular, you should still be very careful in this matter.

Bitcoin ATM – another way to buy Bitcoin

Buying Bitcoin (BTC) can be done using a Bitcoin ATM. This is nothing but a cryptocurrency ATM that allows secure, fast and convenient transfer of FIAT currency to Bitcoin. In addition, Bitcoin ATM is a place where you can buy Bitcoin anonymously, without verification.

There are two types of Bitcoin ATMs where you can buy Bitcoin. The first is one-way ATM, that allows you to buy BTC for cash. In turn, two-way ATMs allow you to additionally sell cryptocurrency and exchange it for cash.

Bitcoin ATMs are free-standing machines located in most major cities, most often they can be found in galleries, shopping malls or around the main transport hubs in a given city. Their great advantage is the ability to buy Bitcoin anonymously without having to register a user account. The only data that is provided when using the Bitcoin ATM is the e-mail address and wallet address.

Transactions via Bitcoin ATMs are extremely secure. In addition, Bitcoin ATMs guarantee a fast transaction rate. After buying Bitcoin the cryptocurrency will appear in your wallet within a few minutes of completing the transaction.

How to buy Bitcoin in a stationary Bitcoin ATM in 2020? Just slip the banknotes into the machine, select the wallet address to which the purchased Bitcoin will go. You can enter the wallet address by hand or scan the QR code. If you do not have your own wallet, the Bitcoin ATM will generate a new address and private key, and place the funds you have purchased there

Buying Bitcoin in an exchange office.

A bit like a Bitcoin ATM, the Bitcoin currency exchange office allows you to buy BTC for pounds (GBP) quickly and conveniently, while maintaining minimum of formalities.

Cryptocurrency exchange offices are online platforms that offer users the opportunity to sell and buy Bitcoin among themselves (P2P exchange offices) and through the exchange office. The times of anonymous cryptocurrency purchases in exchange offices have passed irretrievably. However, the cryptocurrency exchange office allows simple creation of a user account and fast transactions.

There are cryptocurrencies exchange offices on the market that allow anonymous purchases of up to GBP 1,000. If you want to carry out larger transactions, the exchange office is obliged to verify your identity – e.g. by checking the data on an ID card. Buying Bitcoin in an exchange office is one of the most popular ways to obtain cryptocurrency. This solution provides simple and intuitive execution of transactions without the need for long and complicated registration, which takes place on the cryptocurrency exchange.

When choosing a cryptocurrency exchange office to buy Bitcoin (BTC), you should verify the transaction commission imposed by the bureau. In addition, it is necessary to become familiar with technological and legal security of the platform and the quality of the support offered. The refresh rate of the cryptocurrency market value is also important. It should oscillate around 10 seconds, which will guarantee the current price during the transaction.

Other informations

I could write and write that buying Bitcoins is such a great thing. All in all, I don’t know it 100%. That is why I try to not to recommend any particular moments when buying Bitcoin is supposed to be more or less profitable.
I try to base all my statements and analyses on possibly certain assumptions and the knowledge I have gained so far. When I see the right moments for the buy/sell reaction I obviously emphasize them.
Often in the articles, instead of answering the question whether this moment is the most appropriate time to buy Bitcoin, I prefer to present chances of particular scenario – expressed in percentage, as I see it. For example: 70% decreases, 30% increases, therefore, certainly not the best time to buy cryptocurrencies.

Summary – buying Bitcoin for everyone or not?

I could still write quite a lot about the various advantages and disadvantages of this electronic currency. Undoubtedly, the creation of an alternative electronic currency to classic money makes a lot of sense. Especially considering the fact that it was created after the financial crisis of 2007-2009, which was triggered due to the mistakes of bankers and financiers. Banks were bailed out by governments, with public money although in my opinion this should not have been the case at all. It seems that Bitcoin’s creator Satoshi Nakamoto was of a similar opinion. It is possible that it was out of fear of the reaction of this rotten financier that he left his identity anonymous. What do you think? Could there have been a connection? It seems so.

The problem of the bankers’ influence on the Western world was also exposed, in my opinion, by the coronacrisis of 2020 and 2021, after which the goals of these people became clear. We already know that world governments are working to implement their cryptocurrencies or otherwise e-currencies. What consequences might this have for the classic cryptocurrency market and Bitcoin? We don’t know that for now and it’s hard to prophesy.

Buying Bitcoin BTC – update 2021 and 2022

The year 2020 was full of twists and turns in the cryptocurrency market and, of course, Bitcoin itself. The beginning of the year did not herald anything bad. The price gradually and steadily climbed upward, and buying Bitcoin was available for higher and higher prices. At one point the price reached the vicinity of $10000 per unit. Then, more and more alarming information began to appear about the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus spreading around the world.

On February 24, slightly larger declines took place, which started a dynamic sell-off in the stock and cryptocurrency markets. Investors panicked. The crash or colloquially known as the “waterfall” in the markets began. Prices, depending on the currency, fell a dozen to even tens of percent a day. At the climax of the crash on March 13, buying Bitcoin was possible in the $4,000-5,000 range per unit. However, the price quickly rebounded, stabilized and began to rise. First to $6000-7000, and then gradually to $8000,9000 and finally returned to the levels before the crash, i.e. to the price of $10000.

What’s next for Bitcoin BTC?

The moment this “resistance” was pierced, it became clear to all investors that we have another bull market in cryptocurrencies ahead of us. It came to a head in late 2020 when in November and December Bitcoin began to reach the ATH maxima of 2017 and 2018. On the 16th and 17th the ATH was broken out opening the way to further peaks. At the time of writing this article, the price for buying Bitcoin BTC for PLN is oscillating around the astronomical amount of PLN 190000 or about USD 50000 for one. Although it has already rubbed against the value of 57-58 thousand USD. It is currently in the middle of a correction, which may be much deeper than many people think. However, how it will be time will tell. Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies can surprise. However, the forecasts for Bitcoin are quite optimistic. Many analysts point out that Bitcoin will be worth much more in 10 years than it is now, and could turn out to be the best investment of the decade.

Further forecasts for Bitcoin

The price of Bitcoin and similar cryptocurrencies is subject to rapid changes and fluctuations. Sometimes it even goes down in inertia and then you often ask us why Bitcoin is going down? However, when a bull market arrives and the price to buy Bitcoin BTC rises many people fall into joyful exaltation without thinking when to sell their Bitcoins. How much a Bitcoin can be bought or sold for today may be quite different from the price of a Bitcoin 10 years from now. Many of you are wondering why Bitcoin has value and why is it so expensive? Its limited quantity and the fact that it is a technological prototype affect both. Certain imponderables affect its uniqueness and uniqueness such as anonymity. Encryption, anonymity and digital trading are the autotelic values that the first cryptocurrency Bitcoin BTC possesses.

The price of Bitcoin BTC is unlikely to ever be fixed. Bitcoin falls and rises often without any specific reason being the result of speculation. Therefore, often the question of why Bitcoin is rising or falling remains without a clear answer. There is a good chance that other countries besides El Salvador will start accepting it. Which ones will be next?

Other variants and similar cryptocurrencies to Bitcoin BTC

During the development of the project of the first encrypted electronic currency i.e. Bitcoin, there were several splits from its blockchain network i.e. the so-called hard-fork. As a result, 3 more versions were created i.e. Bitcoin Gold, as well as Bitcoin Cash, while from the hard-fork on Bitcoin Cash was born another project i.e. Bitcoin SV. We write a little more about each of these cryptocurrencies in separate articles. If you are interested in this topic then we heartily encourage you to read on. We always try to help and explain issues with how to get started with Bitcoin or how to choose a similar cryptocurrency. The step-by-step purchase of Bitcoin itself is also explained by us probably clearly. Both buying Bitcoin Gold, Cash and buying Bitcoin SV are possible through the European cryptocurrency exchange Zonda and the international platform Binance.

Bitcoin BTC coin

Sometimes novice users ask us if there is such a thing as a Bitcoin BTC coin? The answer is no. Although, in some time, it may turn out that it will be produced by Central Banks that recognize it as a legitimate currency just like, for example, El Salvador. Some institution or entity from the world of encrypted electronic currencies based on blockchain technology may be tempted to at least create such a physical wallet. If it took the form of a Bitcoin coin it would certainly have an interesting effect. The color of the Bitcoin coin should be some shade of yellow or gold, such as amber or saffron or ecru or ochre. Shades of brown like ugier or umber are also possible. Certainly if such a coin existed buying Bitcoin BTC would become even easier and accessible to everyone.
