Kúpiť a predať bitcoin cez LocalBitcoins za hotovosť už nemožno

LocalBitcoins, jedna z prvých bitcoin zmenární, obľúbená pre nákup a predaj bitcoinu osobným stretnutím s protistranou a výmenou za hotovosť, už neumožňuje cash obchodovanie. Vývoj tejto služby od jej vzniku až po súčasné kroky symbolizuje vývoj celého bitcoin odvetvia, posúvajúceho sa do štandardného mainstreamu. Aj na úkor straty atraktívnosti pre tých používateľov, ktorí bitcoin vnímajú ako peer-to-peer transakčný prostriedok.

Bitcoin svet sa mení. Nápadmi nabitých programátorov a vizionárov zo začiatku dekády v pôvodných platformách často striedajú korporátne postavičky v oblekoch. Ktoré ale vedia ako riadiť veľké firmy a byť zadobre s regulátormi. Aj to je dôvod, prečo LocalBitcoins definitívne stopli hotovostné transakcie na jar tohto roku.

V čase zastavenia hotovostných transakcií na LocalBitcoins predstavovali podľa vedenia spoločnosti tieto obchody menej ako pol percenta tržieb. Zlom podľa nového šéfa Sebastiana Sonntaga nastal v roku 2013. Cash obchodníci tu ešte v lete tvorili viac ako polovicu používateľov, na konci roku predstavovali už iba tretinu. V roku 2016 ich podiel klesol pod 5 % používateľov. “LocalBitcoins možno považovať za platformu, kde sa obchodovanie v hotovosti už nerealizuje dlhý čas. Tri roky sú v bitcoine už dlhá doba.”

Korporáti vymieňajú geekov

Zakladatelia LocalBitcoins Jeremias a Nicholas Kangasovci sa postupne prestali venovať riadeniu spoločnosti. Pôvodný start-up z Fínska sa rastom celého bitcoin ekosystému rozrástol na veľkú spoločnosť. A v takej treba riešiť aj bežné organizačno-prevádzkové starosti štandardnej firmy. Nehovoriac o rastúcich regulačných požiadavkách na bitcoin spoločnosti, ktoré narábajú so štátnymi peniazmi.

To už muselo byť na programátorských geekov priveľa a riadenie tak prenechali profesionálom. Nastúpili biele goliere s oblekmi a kravatami, ktoré už zaregistrovali, že bitcoin stráca svoj negatívny obraz a regulácia celého prostredia robí tento biznis “bezpečným”.

“Na začiatku, keď sa spoločnosť nachádzala v šedej zóne, ma to až tak nezaujímalo. Ale teraz s prichádzajúcimi reguláciami firiem sa biznis mení zo šedého na biely,” ozrejmuje svoje uvažovanie S. Sonntag.

Zvláštne argumenty

Dôvodom zastavenia hotovostných obchodov, podľa nového šéfa LocalBitcoins Sebastiana Sonntaga, je obmedzený počet používateľov. Tiež vraj problémy plynúce z takýchto transakcií kvôli nutnosti používania escrow služby a priamej osobnej výmeny.

“Skutočným bezpečnostným problémom je priame obchodovanie s hotovosťou. Taktiež je ťažké dokázať, že hotovosť bola odovzdaná. Čo ak jedna strana povie, že vyplatila peniaze a druhá strana to poprie? Je to skutočne ťažké dokázať,” obraňuje rozhodnutie zrušiť hotovosť S. Sonntag.

Tieto slová vyznievajú iba ako chabá obrana rozhodnutia skončiť s cashom. Nákup a predaj bitcoinu za hotovosť prebiehal x rokov predtým bez problémov. Práve escrow služba je poistkou pred podvodníkmi. Problémom LocalBitcoins bolo a je niečo iné. Centralizovaná služba podliehajúca tlaku regulátorov.

Málo cash obchodov…

Nový manažment zdôvodňuje zrušenie hotovostných transakcií hlavne biznisovými číslami. “Každá firma sa raz dostane do stavu, kedy potrebuje zjednodušiť biznis a koncentrovať sa na kľúčové aktivity. Ak máte takéto nastavenie, tak proste odstrihnete veci, ktoré neprinášajú dostatočný príjem.”

Mika Impola dodáva: “Misiou spoločnosti je priniesť bitcoin do každého mesta na svete alebo umožniť všetkým na zemeguli kupovať a predávať bitcoin. Hotovostné transakcie nie sú pritom dôležité. Rozhodujúce sú iné spôsoby platby.”

Minimálne tržby z hotovostných transakcií cez LocalBitcoins však neboli dôvodom, prečo sa nový manažment rozhodol stopnúť cash. Platforma totiž podporuje mnoho rôznych spôsobov platby v závislosti od krajiny a lokality, pričom závisí iba od dohody predávajúceho a kupujúceho. A určite sú niektoré z nich menej používané, resp. prinášajú menšie tržby ako cash, ktorý je často a pre veľa ľudí jedinou možnou formou výmeny.

…kvôli strate súkromia

Zrušiť hotovosť je rozhodnutie Localbitcoins, na čo má platforma plné právo. Zdôvodňovanie to biznisovými rozhodnutiami a slabými príjmami od tejto časti používateľov však kríva. Postupný útek obchodníkov bol spôsobený okliešťovaním anonymity a súkromia pri používaní platformy. Najskôr to bola nutnosť verifikácie telefónnym číslom, neskôr vyžadovanie ďalších súkromných údajov o používateľoch.

Je pravda, že mnohým zákazníkom tieto kroky nevadili a prispôsobili sa. No LocalBitcoins bola pre bitcoin komunitu od svojho vzniku zaujímavá práve bezpečnosťou a zároveň anonymitou (v prípade, že sa tak používateľ rozhodol) a títo ľudia začali po zavádzaní KYC regulácií platformu opúšťať. Zmenáreň LocalBitcoins už veľa rokov nie je tým, čím bola. Ale rastú nové decentralizované platformy, rešpektujúce súkromie používateľov a nezávisiace od svojvôle ľudí vymýšľajúcich nebezpečné predpisy.

Bitcoin Price Is Going Down And Offers More Options For Buying

The price of bitcoin is heading its own direction as usually, regardless of technological and user experience development progress of the cryptocurrency. It is a downward move making lower lows during these days and weeks. It is time for you to prepare your bitcoin wallets for some new satoshis if you don’t prefer buying on/at the top.

So where is the bitcoin price heading and where we can expect a rebound? Considering bitcoin has been moving for quite a time in charted territory, the technical zones can be of some help.

Bitcoin Price Is Going Down

Daily BTC/USD chart suggests the price obviously sits in fairly clearly delineated descending channel. The lower border of the channel lies at about 6000 USD currently. This place roughly corresponds with a strong support zone which showed its strength at the end of 2017 and start of 2018. Bitcoin price made several strong upward rebounds from this level back then. Only the 6th attack of sellers were successful and bitcoin booked its local record low at that time.

Weekly BTC/USD chart also shows a descending channel been formed. The parallel line of two contacts of the upper bound determine possible rebound zone of the lower bound. If ever the price gets there…Well, it is quite probably after breaking down the strong support at 6000 USD.

It will be interesting to watch the price behavior if BTC/USD gets there, and even more so considering last time it shot up and went through this zone like it didn’t exist. Clearly the rule on price support turned into resistance was not valid here.

Can we see new two-year low if the support at 6000 fails? Sure, of course. Weaker hands will be selling bitcoin in panic and the pressure can keep growing with new record lows. Just to lay out the complete picture: the 1000 USD zone has not been tested yet since its break up at the start of 2017.

Is it realistic to expect bitcoin price collapsing so deep down? Well, not much probable, but you know… There is nothing impossible for bitcoin.

A look at Mayer Multiple chart : Bitcoin sits comfortably in safe zone suitable for accumulation.

Not an investment advice, you should make your own decisions: Do not overthink it here and buy some bitcoin around 6000 USD. Then you can wait there for next price action and save some gunpowder for next possible drop or buy some more after an obvious rebound up.

Cena bitcoinu klesá a ponúka viacero možností nákupu

Napriek technologickému a použivateľskému napredovaniu bitcoinu si cena kryptomeny, ako vždy, ide svojou cestou. A momentálne je vo fáze pohybu nadol a dosahovania nižších miním. Ak neradi nakupujete na/pod vrcholom, je čas pripraviť si bitcoin peňaženky na nové satoshi.

Kam až bitcoin v ceste nadol môže zájsť a kde možno očakávať odraz? Keďže ide o terén cenovo pomerne prebádaný, pomôcť môže technický pohľad na graf a správanie sa ceny na daných úrovniach v minulosti.

Pohľad na denný graf BTC/USD navráva, že cena sa nachádza v pomerne jasne vyhraničenom zostupnom kanáli. Spodný okraj kanála leží niekde okolo 6000 USD. Táto cena sa zároveň zhoduje so silnou podpornou zónou, ktorá sa ukázala dôležitá koncom roku 2017 a začiatkom 2018. Vtedy sa odtiaľ bitcoin niekoľkokrát pomerne jasne odrazil smerom nahor a až na šiesty raz táto podporná zóna kapitulovala a bitcoin zaknihoval nové minimum v tomto období.

Týždenný graf BTC/USD naznačuje takisto tvoriaci sa zostupný kanál. Dve dotykové miesta v hornom okraji určujú možné miesto odrazu v dolnej časti. Úroveň okolo 3000 USD (minimum korekčného pohybu po dosiahnutí vrcholu v roku 2017) by mohla prísť na rad v prípade prelomenia už zmienenej podpory okolo 6000 USD.

Určite bude zaujímavé sledovať ako sa tu cena bude správať aj vzhľadom k tomu, že pri výstupe v apríli 2019 tadiaľto prešla ako nôž maslom (poučka o silnej podpore meniacej sa na silnú rezistenciu tu zjavne neplatila).

Ak teda suport na 6000 zlyhá, môžeme sa dočkať nového dvojročného minima? Áno, samozrejme. Slabšie ruky sa budú bitcoinu v panike zbavovať a tá sa môže zosilniť novým minimom. Iba pre úplnosť treba dodať, že úroveň 1000 USD/BTC nebola vôbec otestovaná od jej prelomenia začiatkom roku 2017. Je reálne, že sa cena bitcoinu môže prepadnúť až sem? Málo pravdepodobné, ale pri bitcoine nie je nič nemožné. Bol by to veľmi pekný a veľký nákupný festival…

A ešte pohľad na Mayer Multiple graf: cena bitcoinu sa nachádza v bezpečnej zóne vhodnej na akumuláciu.

Mayer Multiple for Bitcoin. Is it good time to buy Bitcoin?

Netreba veci prešpekulovať a určite nakupovať okolo 6000 USD. Tam počkať na ďalší vývoj a ponechať si pušný prach na ďalší možný pokles alebo dokúpiť po bezpečnom odraze.

Why Should I Buy Bitcoin?

So you have heard about that bitcoin cryptocurrency that can “make you rich in few years”(well, it is possible, but that is not the most interesting aspect of bitcoin). You want to buy bitcoin but are not sure if you really can because you don’t know much about it. This article tries to answer few question you might ask and provide you with some basic information.

• Is bitcoin legit or is it used only by criminals and hackers? 
• Is bitcoin price really important and predictable?
• Why you should avoid centralized bitcoin exchanges like Coinbase 
• How can you join the bitcoin revolution?
• How to choose the best bitcoin wallet for storing the cryptocurrency

Is Bitcoin Legit?


Bitcoin as new technology and internet of money and value is here. It has been changing the world since its creation a decade ago. Although still in its infancy, just looking at bitcoin price one can tell the cryptocurrency is in high demand. People are interested in bitcoin because of many reasons and all of them relate to bitcoin revolutionary properties which are lacking in the current more and more obsolete and out of date financial system.

The answer to question “is bitcoin legit?” is not much of importance. It never has been, is not and will not be important factor for bitcoin. Bitcoin is safe and has been working perfectly 100 % of time since its birth. There has been many attempts by mainstream news outlet reporting on bitcoin to mark it as a tool for criminals, terrorists and law-avoiding felons. The true is its transparent blockchain network makes bitcoin not convenient tool for hiding many high valued transactions. It is no secret anymore that the best way to launder money is through existing fiat money and banking infrastructure.

Is Bitcoin Legit?


Bitcoin is legal in most countries in the world though there are some that made it illegal like in India where people are prohibited to buy, hold or sell bitcoin. Does this legal status of bitcoin make it unusable and unusable? Not at all! Even in jurisdictions with high regulation or complete ban of bitcoin the cryptocurrency works just fine. Usually bitcoin price is even higher in this environment.

One just need to buy bitcoin peer-to-peer from people selling it or use decentralized bitcoin exchanges which are popping up every day taking care of people disgusted by centralized exchanges demanding more and more private personal information when opening account, withdrawing money or sending transactions.

Services not enforcing KYC/AML requirements do not care about your name, ID, permanent address nor color of your socks. You should use bitcoin wallet where you hold your private keys and do not store your bitcoin in online wallet. Bitcoin is not safe in that case. No, buying and storing bitcoin at Coinbase exchange is not recommended for so many reasons that to describe them all is out of the scope right now.

Should I Care About Bitcoin Price?

Bitcoin price is what most people and bitcoin enthusiasts care about. Checking bitcoin price today and every day has become kind of habit in the cryptosphere. You can find live bitcoin price chart or widget on every major bitcoin news outlet. What is bitcoin price in usd today, bitcoin/euro exchange rate? You can check bitcoin price live in the chart right here:


What will be the bitcoin price one year from now and end of the year? That is what people are interested in mostly. Only a small part of bitcoin users does not really care about bitcoin price or future bitcoin price predictions as they see bitcoin predominantly as protocol, information or payment system.

New bitcoin price charting analysts wanna make a living of their subscription services predicting the next price move. Bitcoin is highly speculative asset whether you like or not. It is revolutionary technology currently finding its place in distorted and corrupted financial world where asset prices are artificially inflated. Bitcoin presents a hedge against debt and inflation driven society.

And that is why to predict future price of bitcoin is easy. It must go up. A bold prediction, right? Also some people like to say it is not bitcoin going up but fiat currencies like dollar, euro going down to their “intrinsic” value, which is zero.

USD heading to its intrinsic value
US dollar heading slowly to its intrinsic value

Therefore the current bitcoin price in terms of dollar or euro is meaningless and what matters is how much bitcoin do you own. Is it more than one bitcoin? Very good, you are part of very narrow group of early adopters, who will be Warren Buffets of cryptoeconomy. Do you own more than 0,1 BTC? Still good, your future well-being doesn’t have to rely on pension handouts and your retirement is more or less secured (depending on your age).

Why U Should Not Use Coinbase exchange

Coinbase exchange is probably the most used crypto service out there. One can buy or sell many cryptocurrencies even with debit or credit card. If lots of people buy and sell cryptocurrencies in this exchange that means it must be the best one, right? Wrong!

Firstly, using any centralized crypto service is dangerous for you. They will ask for your personal data which are stored on their servers, that means easy target for hackers to steal and further sell these data about you to other parties. But that is only one of many reasons why not to use crypto exchanges like Coinbase. They use so called blockchain analysis software spying on your bitcoin transactions and checking your bitcoin origin or next use of bitcoin after you withdraw the cryptocurrency. It can result to shutting down of your account even if you don’t do anything illegal.

You say you don’t care about privacy and prefer comfort and ease of use? OK, fair enough. Then be aware that Coinbase exchange holds private key to your bitcoin. That means your bitcoin is not really yours because you don’t own the private key. Maybe you have already heard the saying “Not your key not your bitcoin”. Sometimes it comes from people who have taken hard lesson to learn what that means while losing money in real or staged accidents. The history of bitcoin is paved by big thefts, freezing of exchange accounts and hacks of centralized services.

Why U Should Not Use Coinbase exchange
Coinbase reviews on Trustpilot are quite self-explanatory

Besides all of this Coinbase exchange has long history of behaving anti-bitcoin, anti-business, unethically towards crypto users. Some people call it Conbase for a reason. Simply said it is not the service bitcoin users would need at best and can get hurt or lose money there at worst.

Never forget, with bitcoin you are your own master, your own bank. Swiss bank in your pocket. If you don’t care properly about your money, someone else will but not for your own good.

How To Join Bitcoin Revolution

Bitcoin is revolution. Bitcoin brings freedom to financial world same as books brought freedom of thought a centuries ago and internet came with more freedom of information few decades back. You can join bitcoin revolution too and not only passively watch how it has been changing the world as we know it.

How can you participate in bitcoin revolution? There are many ways: if you are a software developer, learn how to code in bitcoin protocol and build useful applications.

Earn your income in bitcoin, learn how to use it, test the best and safe bitcoin wallet that is most convenient for your needs, run bitcoin node, send and receive bitcoin payments, learn what is Lightning network or how to increase privacy of bitcoin you hold. If you are good at teaching and explaining things to audience start providing your own learning course (of course only after getting enough theoretical and practical knowledge about bitcoin).

Even if you are an employee in company with your mundane boring job you can join bitcoin revolution. Just set up your own bitcoin wallet and buy regularly certain amount of bitcoin for your fiat money income. Preferable way of buying is cash person-to-person (bitcoin meetups, friend of friend of friend from btc community), decentralized bitcoin exchange like Bisq or at bitcoin ATM.

The ways to join bitcoin revolution:

  • Acquire bitcoin by accepting bitcoin payments, mining bitcoin or purchasing bitcoin
  • Engage in services for bitcoin
  • Provide solutions for bitcoin acceptance
  • Leverage bitcoin technology
  • Invest in bitcoin or bitcoin economy

Choose The Best Bitcoin Wallet For Your Needs

Bitcoin wallet is a device where you store your bitcoin. Same as with traditional fiat money there are many kinds of wallets. You can store money in a bank, i.e. coinbase bitcoin wallet. As mentioned above this approach seems to be safe but it is not. Same as with your money in bank, it is not really yours. The bank has final say over whether it allows you to send a payment or make withdrawal or at what conditions.

Centralized bitcoin exchange like Coinbase can reject your transaction for whatever reason it comes up with. The more and more strict KYC/AML regulations allow these services to freeze your money if they think the transaction is suspicious for some reason or does not comply with their rules.

Again, it has nothing to do with how bitcoin works and all with how these third parties control “your” money. Try to use bitcoin peer-to-peer as much as you can and you will realize bitcoin runs smoothly and without any problems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during weekends, holidays.

Best bitcoin wallet is the one with which you own your private key to bitcoin. Bitcoin wallet consists of list of bitcoin addresses. When choosing the right bitcoin wallet you should figure out what will you use bitcoin for. Is it for saving for the future? Try to buy hardware wallet like Trezor, Coldcard or Ledger which you will use not so often.

There are also cheaper solutions than hardware bitcoin wallets. If you have free notebook you can download desktop bitcoin wallet like Electrum or Bitcoin core and use it only for bitcoin transactions without connecting the machine to internet (Of course, first learn how to use it securely and what is the exact approach). Nowadays you can use them also in combination with hardware wallets.

There are also bitcoin paper wallets, which are not actually wallets (storing more bitcoin addresses) but only pair of bitcoin keys (public in the form of bitcoin address and private key). Some people do not recommend using paper wallets saying they are not secure enough. Be very careful when generating paper bitcoin wallet.

Choose The Best Bitcoin Wallet For Your Needs
Visit Bitcoin.org when choosing the best bitcoin wallet for your needs

If you want to use bitcoin wallet for smaller day to day payments or just temporary moving of bitcoin, you can find and download some secure bitcoin wallet from bitcoin.org website. Beware of less known bitcoin wallets apps in IOS or Android app store in your smartphone and always check bitcoin wallets reviews before installation. Store only the amount of bitcoin equal to your amount of fiat you would carry in traditional wallet.

Do not forget: security first! Learn properly how to use all devices, solutions, approaches. Start with small money and only after you feel like you know what you are doing make bigger transfers. Most crypto accidents where people lose bitcoin happen not because of hacks or thefts but lack of safety in own personal procedures and methods. It is more probable you lose or forget your password than get hacked. Remember, bitcoin is here to be the money only you manage, not some other persons you don’t even know. Not your key (password, seed) not your bitcoin.

What Bitcoin News Sites To Follow

Bitcoin is new kid in town and many people are still not familiar with how bitcoin works, how to profit from it, how to use it, why to use bitcoin or how to buy and where to check the crazy bitcoin price. It is for your own good and wisdom to follow a credible bitcoin news sites and sources.

The most prolific stream of bitcoin ideas, news, concepts or current bitcoin price development and expectations one can find on #bitcoin (#BTC, $bitcoin) and again on @bitcoin twitter. Although most bitcoin twitter posts are directed to a bit advanced audience, you should not give up on trying to understand them if you are a beginner.

One can also find great stream of bitcoin news on reddit though be careful. There is the real Bitcoin Reddit channel and then there is also fake Bitcoin channel occupied by Roger Ver and his bitcoin cash cheerleaders. If by chance you don’t know, bitcoin cash is one of bitcoin hard forks splitting bitcoin and de facto another shitcoin used by almost nobody.

There are more than many crypto news in this space, most websites only waste your time and energy as they write about shitcoins and disregard info about bitcoin on purpose. Often these news sites promote some hidden agenda, i.e. shilling for one of several thousands of shitcoins they hope people would buy so they can sell to them for higher price.

There is growing number of quality bitcoin podcasts or bitcoin youtube channels one can follow. You can choose bitcoin show for an entertainment, education, investing, trading, programming, technical stuff or other purpose you are interested in. Just use google when finding some podcasts, youtube shows, bitcoin price news, bitcoin news sites or twitter bitcoiners. You will quickly find out there are so many good quality sources of bitcoin information that you have no chance to catch up with all of them. As always the final choice of crypto news is up to you.

Buy Bitcoin and Forget About Price

Maybe you are well aware of the saying: “The best time to buy bitcoin was yesterday. The second best time to buy bitcoin is today.” You might say we are really exaggerating here now, but it is true. Bitcoin price has been going up since it started trading almost ten years ago. Yes, bitcoin price is volatile as some talking heads like to say. And there was even two years in bitcoin short history when bitcoin price declined year over year. But even half-blinded human being can see steep appreciation by several millions of % on the long-term chart. Buy bitcoin now.

Buy Bitcoin and Forget About Price
Long-term logarithmic chart of BTC/USD price

Bitcoin price has been and will be going up long-term (in relation to euro, dollar or other fiat crypto shitcoin, (yes I mean the shitcoin you own also) because of its four year halving cycle. That is the most important bitcoin fundamental feature which impacts on bitcoin price. You can speculate with usual strategy of trying to buy bitcoin low and sell it high. But you would lose money after all. Even most successful investors can’t time the market to pinpoint the exact bottom or top. Buy and hold bitcoin. Forget about bitcoin price.

Bitcoin is not only financial asset people speculate on. It is new technology, revolutionary technology. It is internet of money, the very basic layer upon which further layers of finance and value transfer will be built on. Besides of those properties bitcoin is a store of value. It is coming at the time when all other assets are devalued with more and more debt in the economy. Bitcoin is the ultimate tool for protecting your hard earned money and giving you freedom to use it when you want, where you want and how you want. Buy bitcoin now.

Buy bitcoin and hold it. Where to store bitcoin? Of course in your own bitcoin wallet. That means a wallet where only you or parties you trust own private keys. Bitcoin wallet can use multiple private keys when spending coins (so called multisig wallet) and it is convenient if you want to distribute the risk of losing a key.

Where to buy bitcoin? The most popular way how to buy bitcoin is bitcoin exchange. However it is also the least privacy protecting way. There are many pitfalls not obvious to user at the start. As mentioned previously, the most comfortable way does not equal the safest option. If you really have no other possibility how to buy bitcoin, just exchange your dollars or euro there and immediately withdraw bitcoin from an exchange to your own personal wallet. Yes, you can buy bitcoin with credit card, debit card for higher fee. There is also possible to buy bitcoin with paypal, though most sellers do not allow it because buyer can take the fiat payment back later and scam the seller.

If you prefer to avoid all the hustle and risk related to sending your personal information to a service, buy bitcoin in bitcoin ATM machine. Yes, you pay higher fee there but you purchase bitcoin to hold it for several years at least if not forever, right? Your privacy, your safety, your keys are more valuable than additional few percent you pay for bitcoin at ATM. Especially when bitcoin price is going to increase 1000x in future.

Should I Buy Cryptocurrency Now?

You should buy cryptocurrency right now, if you don’t own any yet. And by cryptocurrency we mean bitcoin, not one of many useless and valueless cryptocurencies listed on Coinbase exchange for example.

Many people think they should buy one of those other crypto shitcoins because bitcon price is too high and they can not afford the whole bitcoin. And that is the reason they are searching for cheap cryptocurrency to invest. That is plainly wrong assumption.

Bitcoin is divided into eight decimal places. The least unit of 0.00000001 BTC is called satoshi. That equals to about 0.0001 USD right now. Do you still think you can’t afford to buy fraction of bitcoin now? And instead putting your hard earned money into unlimited number of altcoins which will not exist few years or decades later or will be totally worthless?

The main reason you want to buy bitcoin is its limited number. There will never be more than 21 million bitcoins and currently has been already mined about 18 million BTC. No other cryptocurrency has such limit on the total number of units and that is why bitcoin is the best cryptocurrency for storing your money.

Buy and Hold Bitcoin

Did you buy small amount of bitcoin? OK, well done. Now make sure you store the cryptocurrency in your own bitcoin wallet and do not leave money at bitcoin exchange. The safest method or strategy how you grow your bitcoin investment, insurance, wealth (insert here your purpose of purchase) is HODLing with regular buying in smaller amounts (so called stacking sats).

You don’t have to stress over where is bitcoin price right now, if or when it plunges down. Also you don’t care if it is too high. You only buy certain amount once per month, per week or whatever time period suits your needs. So called dollar-cost averaging buying helps you avoid emotional ups and downs related to newbie trader mentality.

Platba kryptomenami v Európe takmer neexistuje

Digitálny spôsob platby ponúka zákazníkom v Európe ani nie tretina firiem, pričom vo východnej Európe (26 %) je to ešte menej ako v západnej. Z jednotlivých spôsobov digitálnych platieb medziročne o niečo vzrástli mobilné platby (z 5 na 7 %). Kryptomenami sa prakticky stále neplatí (1 %).

Platba kryptomenami v Európe takmer neexistuje

Čo je najzaujímavejším poznatkom z prieskumu poskytovateľa finančných služieb EOS, najväčšie medziročné zmeny zaznamenali bezhotovostné platby, ktorých podiel vzrástol z 28 na 39 %.
