Because of the unique and different nature of the virtual currencies, there’re a few inherent benefits of transacting through the Bitcoin that the users of some other currencies don’t get. The digital currencies are new or untested way for exchange and the users must be very careful to weigh down the risks and benefits. This said, bitcoin seems to provide unique possibilities.
Bitcoin is the decentralized and peer-2-peer, “cryptocurrency” made to allow the internet users to process the transactions by digital units of the exchange named Bitcoins. Began in the year 2009 by the mysterious programmer, the Bitcoin generated a lot of interest or controversy as the “third” kind of currency and alternative to the government flat currencies such as the US dollar or euro and pure commodity currencies such as gold and silver coins.
The bitcoin payments can be processed through the private network of the computers that are linked through the shared program. Every transaction is recorded in the “blockchain” on every computer, which updates or informs all the accounts.
Bitcoins are “mined” by the computer through process of solving more and more complex mathematical algorithms and bought with the standard money currencies or placed in the “Bitcoin wallet,” which is accessed through the computer or smartphone.
The Bitcoin purchases are quite discrete. Unless the user voluntarily publishes their Bitcoin transactions and his purchases are not associated with the personal identity, like the cash-only purchases, or will not get traced back on him.
