Step 1 —> Get Started With Bitcoin
Before you start using Bitcoin, which is still experimental but has been operating without any interruptions for over eight years, there are a few things that you need to know in order to use it securely and avoid common pitfalls.
First, Bitcoins are impossible to counterfeit or inflate.
Second, you can use them to send or receive any amount of money, with anyone, anywhere in the world, at very low cost. Bitcoin payments are impossible to block, and bitcoin wallets can’t be frozen.
Third, with Bitcoin, you can directly control the money yourself without going through a third party like a bank or Paypal.
Fourth, Bitcoin transactions cannot be reversed or refunded. You should only deal with businesses or people you trust.
