Frequently Asked Questions

About Bitcoin

What is the blockchain?

A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers so that any involved record cannot be altered retroactively, without the alteration of all subsequent blocks.

Each “block” represents several transactional records, and the “chain” component links them all together. When records are first created, they are confirmed by a distributed network of computers and paired up with the previous entry in the chain, creating a chain of blocks or a blockchain.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a kind of digital currency that can be sent from person to person without the need for a trusted third party such like a bank or other financial institution; Bitcoin is the first global, decentralized currency.

What is a digital currency wallet?

Much like a traditional wallet you may carry in your pocket is used to carry paper money and debit cards, a digital currency wallet is used to store your bitcoin.

Unlike some digital currency wallets, Coinme will store your private keys to ensure you will not lose access to your funds.

Is Bitcoin safe?

The Bitcoin network has proven to be secure, functional, and efficient. The technology used to build Bitcoin is mathematically secured, and the open-source community is continually working to inspect, audit, and improve on the network.

There have been Bitcoin-related compromises in the past, but this does not reflect upon the security of the Bitcoin network itself. This is typically the result of poor security or negligence on the part of the exchange or individual transacting with the bitcoins. This is why it is essential to be diligent with your bitcoin transactions and passwords.

Where can I spend Bitcoin?

Many companies like Microsoft, Overstock, Reddit and even Etsy shop owners accept bitcoin. Small businesses aren’t missing out on the action; many small shops have started accepting bitcoin, as well.
