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.

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

Weekly Update: Parachute Running Club, $JOB on ParJar, Hydro + Mastercard, Pepo Conversations... – 29 Nov - 5 Dec'19
Heyo folks! It’s been quite some time since I wrote a weekly update and am really backed up with pending ones. Will be posting three updates today to cover the period from 29 Nov’19 to 19 Dec’19. So here goes the first one as I start to catch up. Your week at Parachute + partners (29 Nov - 5 Dec'19):

The PAR4PAR lottery entered stage eight this week with the total pot notched up to 400k $PAR. Whoa! In this week's creative prompt (#creativity) by Jason, folks drew the admin crew in Christmas scenes. 10k $PAR for the winners. Nice! Chris announced the winners of the Parachute Thanksgiving FamDuel which was launched last week. But first, an honor roll for the "Face down" "A$$ up" participants (Thanks Nathan and Hang for that piece of literature. Lol). Jason, Cap and Tony came in last (in that order). Props to Tony's lil' one for beating Cap fair and square. Haha. Congratulations to Jibola, Ganteng and ShaQ for topping the charts. That is 100k $PAR in prizes given away. Saweet! Doc Vic (from Cuba) hosted a medical trivia (on Gynecology and Obstetrics) in TTR for a 25k $PAR pot. Cool! Kim's Zany Zebra won this week's Parena to take home 25k $PAR from the 50k $PAR pot.
Lolarious sticker pack out in the wild! :D
Andy’s Advent Calendar goes off to an epic start
Jason launched the Parachute Running Club this week to get Parachuters across the globe into shape. Everyone is welcome to join. There will be monthly run challenges and every confirmed mile will win $PAR rewards. Thank you James (@JJD1000) for the friggin’ awesome idea! This week's Two-for-Tuesday by Gian was themed on vowels. "Post any two videos from bands or artists whose name starts with A, E, I, O, or U". GC also permitted W and Y coz why not! Haha. Like clockwork, Charlotte hosted her Math trivia in TTR for 25k $PAR in prizes. Woot! Next week, we will be having a townhall with Cap and Ice to get feedback from Parachuters on what we are doing right and what could be better. Cap will also be sharing sneak peeks on what’s coming up in Parachuteland. Cheers to Kamo and DogGodFrogLog for their quick gun Dean Winchester replies and winning a boatload of $PAR in return. This week we welcomed Jobchain’s $JOB token as the latest asset to be listed on ParJar.
Some of the early entries to the #creativity contest. Hats off!

As the SelfKey crew continues to work on the platform, it regularly churns out crucial guidelines to stay one step ahead of hackers. This week, they discussed about social engineering hacks. Also, read up on federated identity management (FIM) and how it is different from single sign-on (SSO). $KEY was listed on Estonian exchange ExMarkets with $BTC and $ETH as trading pairs this week. Catch up on the latest at Opacity from their November update.

Devs wanting to know how the Pepo smart contracts work, can just ask Benjamin on the app. Neat!
Set a price and start your Pepo Conversation. High quality engagement made simple
Constellation entered into a partnership with Quant to allow interoperability of big data between disparate systems. To celebrate the occasion they hosted a giveaway contest.

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.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For some more great introductory videos check out Andreas Antonopoulos's YouTube playlists, he is probably the best bitcoin educator out there today. Also have to give mention to James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Lots of additional video resources can be found at the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here. Scaling resources here, and of course the whitepaper that started it all.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com and Howtobuybitcoin.io are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer.

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.

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:

BitGrail - Getting your holdings back MEGATHREAD

UPDATE: 16 July 2019 from the Discord Channel, how to file your claims...

@espenenger said:
In the attachments below, you will find formal claims prepared by our attorneys. Because the Bitgrail exchange changed company structure from Webcoin to BG-services, you will find two claims you have to fill out. To make it easier, the claims have been prepared in both English and italian in the same form (meaning you will not need to translate yourself or send four different claims). In short, what you need to do is to fill out these two claims (Webcoin and BG-services), print them, sign them, scan them and send them to the trustees.
Send the Webcoin document to
[email protected]
Send the BG Services document to
[email protected]

If you are unsure about how to file your claims, the attorneys have prepared a guide for you with a prefilled example in this PDF attachment

BG Services
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rfc7m8IsHfQCxup7iGXLJPNzOBn9c3G8/view?usp=sharing

I recommend reading the Guide. If you already sent in your claim through one of the older claim forms, you can either wait for a response from the trustees or send them in again using these new forms. If you have not filed your claim, I recommend using the new forms posted today.

As listed on a previous post, https://www.bitgrail.com/ has been updated with legal information from the Bitgrail trustees. I would guess this content is going to be updated over time. So, in order to keep a record of what you have to do to claim your holdings in one place, we have a megathread!

Proof of Claim
Espen Enger May 12 2019:
“I think we have to wait untill the appeal process is over, before the trustees are free to begin their task of collecting formal claims. Yes, they have the list, but will still need each claimant to file their formal claim when that option becomes available. We will just have to be as loud as possible on the different forums to make sure all claimants get the chance once it is.”
I do not know what legally constitutes a proof of claim yet. Again when I get access to the bitgrail discord, I will hopefully have more info on that.
Bitgrail.com Details (as of 11/05/19):
  1. The hearing to determine the “Stato passivo” in the bankruptcy procedure of WebCoin Solutions di Francesco Firano is going to be held on September 24, 2019, at 10:30 am, at the Tribunale di Firenze in front of the G.D. Dott.ssa Silvia Governatori;
  2. The hearing to determine the “Stato passivo” in the bankruptcy procedure of BG SERVICES SRL is going to be held on October 07, 2019, at 09:00 am, at the Tribunale di Firenze in front of the G.D. Dott. Cristian Soscia;
  3. The communication to the creditors under art. 92 of the Italian bankruptcy law containing all the relevant information in order to allow all the creditors to file their proof for claim with the Court is being prepared by the bankruptcy trustees and will be made available to all creditors as soon as possible. It will contain all the relevant information in order for the creditors to file their proof of claim under art. 93 of the Italian bankruptcy law;
  4. The proof of claim by each creditor shall be filed with the bankruptcy trustee within 30 days before the date of each hearing;
  5. We will provide as soon as possible to all creditors information on how to proceed to file a proof of claim with respect to the abovementioned bankruptcy procedures. We suggest you to wait for such instructions before filing a petition;
My current understanding is that a formal claim will need to be filed a period of time before, see previous posts for details.

Weekly Update: PAR on CMC, The Parachute Story, AXPR on Binance Chain, Opacity Willard... – 21 Jun - 27 Jun'19

Weekly Update: PAR on CMC, The Parachute Story, AXPR on Binance Chain, Opacity Willard... – 21 Jun - 27 Jun'19
Hiya folks! Here’s your week at Parachute (21 Jun - 27 Jun'19):

This was the biggest week at Parachute yet. So we will need multiple paragraphs for Parachute in this update. It has been a long time coming. PAR got listed on CoinMarketCap and we are super stoked about it! Some of the factors that led upto the listing were – 80k BOMB tokens tipped around in ParJar in 29k tips and Weekly ParJar user chart going parabolic. Thanks once again to BOMB for the shoutout! Great chemistry indeed. This was also an appropriate time to share the Parachute story – how it all started, where we are right now and where we are headed to. One step at a time towards #cryptoforeveryone. What a journey! Also, Cap published the PAR tokenomics article for anyone wanting to see how it will move around in the Parachute ecosystem.
Ice @Parachute HQ on a Saturday contemplating “What is Parachute?”
The CMC listing called for a celebratory Parena. And glorious it was! Blood was spilled, alliances crushed and in the end Marcone stood victorious. He took home 150k PAR from a 525k PAR pot. Still not sure how Parena works? Well, TTR folks got your back. Community members from the tip room made some amazing Video Tutorials on Parena. Click here to check them out! ParJar turned into trivia central this week with Victor, Ian (props to Rene for sticking with “Picasso” for every answer in the art quiz. Lol), Afful and Sophie hosting back to back quizzes. A total of 245k PAR were given out. Say what! This week’s two-for-Tuesday theme was cover songs.
Jason’s beer consignment from last week reached its destination. Cheers Chris!
Sebastian had taken the lead in the Big Chili Race in the middle of the week, only to be beaten by Tony (again!) by the end of the week at 38 cm. The ultra hots breached 20 cm just this week. Gian announced the start of the Big Brother 21 contest with a 240k PAR pot. BB fans assemble! Watch out for updates from GC in Parachute. Facebook just announced the Libra cryptocurrency project and we had to get in on that discussion. Right on cue, this week’s Parachute + Uptrennd brainstorm session was based on how Libra would impact crypto.
Alexis repping PAR with that uber cool OG gear
New feature alert on ParJar: type /price and then coin/token ticker to get current price statistics in USD (Eg. /price PAR) OR, type /price then coin/token ticker and then a representing coin/token/currency ticker (any one between BTC/ETH/LTC/XLM/XRP/BCH/CAD/EUGBP/PLN/RUB) to get price statistics in representing currency (Eg. /price PAR ETH to get price statistics of PAR in ETH) [P.S. It is recommended to use the /price function in PM with the bot to avoid spam]. Oh and did I mention that ParJar tip confirmation messages now include the tipper as well? This will help keep an audit trail of tips should it be required. Also, check out the revised Parachute 101 Doc. It is a whitepaperoadmap/plan/technical documentation/pitch deck all rolled into one. Can’t get simpler than that. For ParJar support issues, we have a specific channel now to handle individual cases. Plus, there’s new Parachute swag in the Parachute Shop now. Thanks Clinton!
New group logo. Clean and simple
Whew! And we are not done yet. This was just Parachute news. For partner news, keep reading! aXpire is now integrating with Binance Chain to create a BEP2 version of AXPR for trading on Binance Dex. Woohoo! Remember, we had mentioned that Fantom was open sourcing its ERC20-BEP2 bridge? Well, that’s what’s helping aXpire get to BEP2. Thanks Fantom! The ERC20 version of the token will also continue to exist and this is not a token swap. Just a means to be able to trade on Binance Dex. aXpire aired the first ever episode of its Blockchain for Good Series which talks about use of blockchain in humanitarian aid. The project got a detailed feature on SS Connection’s video this week. The team wasn’t even aware until a community member pointed it out. Spanish speakers, enjoy! aXpire also attended the Crypto Evolved conference hosted by Viable Mkts this week. Don’t forget to check out the detailed piece by CardRates that covers the various enterprise solutions offered by aXpire.

BOMB token was listed on Switcheo this week in a Flash Listing. What this means is if BOMB trade volumes are sustained over a month, the listing will be permanent. One cool feature of Switcheo is that you can create OTC deals on it. Heard the BOMB Theme Song yet? A community member made a super catchy one. Listen in here. BOMB core developer Austin sat down for an interview with Crypto Lifestyle this week to delve into the project and talk all things BOMB. The BOMB Video contest is on full swing with terrific entries in already. Check out this tweet thread to watch some of them. CoinsOnFire’s review of BOMB is up too. Have a read! And finally a big one. Founder Zachary Dash’s tete-a-tete with Occupy Wall Street co-founder Micah White is out now.
Can’t get over how deeply analysed Benjamin’s BOMB Reports are
Horizon State was featured in a list compiled by researcher Ellis Jones covering the various ways blockchain was creating social impact. Founder Nimo also shared his observation this week (in his weekly “Good Dickens” message) that sales calls to countries for their elections are proving to be futile and expensive. “Instead, we are now targeting companies and other entities who need relatively lower-stake votes….The plan is to get a good number of happy customers - so that any subsequent sale becomes a bit easier”. Sounds like a great plan! Like always, the District Weekly and Dev Update provide ample news from District0x. Similarly Bounty0x’s Distribution Report and Product Update should be of interest to bounty hunters and BNTY fans. Switch’s ESH token got listed on Instantbitex this week. ETHOS is now listed on Simple Swap and Change NOW. And Birdchain’s BIRD token was listed on P2PB2B exchange.
First 5 days of the 2gether referral program
Hydro founder Matthew Kane travelled to Tel Aviv this week to speak at the FinTech Junction Conference on Digital Transformations in the Banking sector (click here for pics). Check out Mark Anstead’s quick intro videos on Hydro products and Hydro Pay. The team also announced the start of a video contest this week for some cool HYDRO up for grabs. Check out the deets here. The Hydro Pay platform also has some pretty cool referral bonuses. If you haven’t seen them yet, have read of this article for a quick lowdown. The Opacity 101 article came out this week. It’s a comprehensive guide to get started using the platform from scratch. Plus, Tim made a cool new bot to share Opacity Gift Codes with each other. There are 8 codes in the article but they are probably all redeemed by now. Fantom’s push for transparency has already seen tie-ups with Messari and Binance (V label). In line with this, the project also partnered with Xangle. CMO Michael Chen has been travelling this week to speak about Fantom - at Blockchain Expo and ZKLux#1. Reflecting on the Binance listing, the Fantom team listed their top takeaways in this tweet thread. KuCoin moved FTM to its KuCoin Plus Trading Area which is the exchange’s own curated list of top projects. Woot! Weiss Ratings’ review of FTM was also published this week. Check it out! Fantom's infographic contest has been seeing some stellar entries already. Click here to check an absolute stunner. And finally, the Wednesday airdrops have now started on the WednesdayClub dApp. Get in on it!

And with that we close for this week at Parachute. See you tomorrow with another update and then we will be all caught up. Ciao!

/r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers 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.
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! :)

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.
Android iOs Desktop
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.

Petition against destructive polish law about cryptocurrencies. Can u help?

Few days ago Polish Ministry of Finance
published guidelines for taxes on crypto.
(translated article)
Besides the income tax (18% or 32%) they've added PCC Tax to crypto. For EVERY TRANSACTION ( crypto->crypto, fiat->crypto or crypto->fiat) you are obliged to pay PCC Tax of 1% market value.
Example: You start with 1 BTC (around 7.000$). If you make 500 transactions a day (scenario of selling and buying at the same price), then you have to pay 1% of 7.000$ 500 times, which makes around 35.000$. After a week of trading you have to prepare 3500 papers and all of these should be delivered within 2 weeks of it happening. This makes polish law the most destructive in the world.
We have prepared a PETITION to polish goverment and polish prime minister to fix this ludicrous law.
As a part of cryptocurrency community we would like to ask you for help.
We really need you!
