1. What are Bitcoins?

Significant tech changes occurred with Personal computers in 1975, the Internet in 1993 and Bitcoin started to happen in 2014. Here is a short video explanation. However, it is the first open source digital currency “for the people, by the people”!!! Bitcoin is (not just) the first digital currency that you can take internationally without agents or cash-sniffing dogs to stop you. The risk is governments not being able to stop legal action and Bitcoin growing as a currency. Bitcoin will be cheaper for users and merchants abroad. Bitcoin is a digital currency, a protocol, and open-source software and enables instant worldwide peer to peer transactions for little or no processing fees and no risk of chargebacks or fraud while being immune to seizure or confiscation. As an open-source software it means all users have access to all of the source code all of the time. Bitcoin uses peer to peer technology to operate with no central authority; managing transactions and issuing Bitcoins are carried out collectively by the network. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment systems. Bitcoin was released in January 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto. It was then valued at $0.03 per Bitcoin. It is growing and supported by a vibrant economy of developers, exchanges, businesses and users. Here is the total value of Bitcoins in circulation (Market Cap) today. Supply of Bitcoins is limited to 21 Million. Cryptography is well established and a fundamental technology used in online banking. But unlike fiat currency with central banks and online banking; Bitcoin has been able to construct a currency and payment network with open-source software using heavily peer reviewed cryptographic ciphers that removes the need to trust a central authority. Consequently, many people trust Bitcoin because it requires absolutely no trust of any third party. Provided that Bitcoin does become the de facto programmable currency of the Internet, transaction volume and sheer interest alone will keep its value above zero. It has been said that “It’s probably easier and cheaper to counterfeit hundred-dollar bills than it is to counterfeit Bitcoin”. Bitcoin is one of the first implementations of a concept called cryptocurrency. This math-based currency is a new form of money that uses cryptography to control its creation and management, rather than relying on central authorities.

2. What is the historic/current price of a Bitcoin?

The price of a Bitcoin can vary based on which exchange it is valued on. We use https://bitcoinaverage.com/#USD  as the benchmark price throughout our site because it is an average index price sourced from the top 14 or so exchanges listed here by volume. It also quotes the Bitcoin value in your selected fiat currency. Our price ticker widget data on the pink panel of our site is derived from this same source, you can see that if you click on it. Latest BTC/USD price chart. Use this converter for calculating conversion between fiat and BTC.

3. What are the risks of owning Bitcoins?

Turning to more fundamental security and the theft-related risks that may affect the cryptocurrency (or at least its reputation), many experts describe Bitcoin as safer than gold — in other words: “You have got to break into a bank and then break a password.” However the security of your Bitcoin savings is of course only as robust as your password. “If you use a bad password, and are lax about it’s secrecy then your Bitcoins may get stolen,”. The exchange that hold your Bitcoins may cease operating (as in the case of MT Gox). Open markets feature necessary business failures so that resources can be better managed else where. These are not the fault of the currency but the models those businesses operate!  Bitcoins are volotile and may fall in value compared to what you bought them at. Governments around the world may declare them illegal, although no Government have done that yet, in fact they have started drawing up legislation to acknowledge their use in the economy! The risks are small relative to the inevitable hyper inflation of debt laden fiat currencies, as in these cases.

4. What are the benefits of Bitcoins?

  • Payment freedom – It is possible to send and receive any amount of money instantly anywhere in the world at any time. No bank holidays. No borders. No imposed limits. Bitcoin allows its users to be in full control of their money.
  • Fewer risks for merchants – Bitcoin transactions are secure, irreversible, and do not contain customers’ sensitive or personal information. This protects merchants from losses caused by fraud or fraudulent charge backs, and there is no need for PCI compliance. Merchants can easily expand to new markets where either credit cards are not available or fraud rates are unacceptably high. The net results are lower fees, larger markets, and fewer administrative costs.
  • Security and control – Bitcoin users are in full control of their transactions; it is impossible for merchants to force unwanted or unnoticed charges as can happen with other payment methods. Bitcoin payments can be made without personal information tied to the transaction. This offers strong protection against identity theft. Bitcoin users can also protect their money with backup and encryption.
  • Transparent and neutral – All information concerning the Bitcoin money supply itself is readily available on the block chain for anybody to verify and use in real-time. No individual or organization can control or manipulate the Bitcoin protocol because it is cryptographically secure. This allows the core of Bitcoin to be trusted for being completely neutral, transparent and predictable.
  • Dis-intermediates -It encourages removal of anyone that does not add value to the service. E.g be your own secure bank without banks. This eliminates the trust we purchase from a middleman, e.g bank, government, insurer, broker; allowing removal of non value adding middle men for transference of property rights.
  • Largest p2p network ever -The Bitcoin intrinsic value is in the protocol (technology) on which other services will be developed e.g  Contracts without lawyers.  This is known as Bitcoin 2.0 is likely to disrupt our society and economy positively in ways we can’t imagine.
  • Deflationary in nature -Limited in supply to 21 million Bitcoins, means their value is likely to keep rising long term. Since their inception in 2009 their value has increased 1000’s of percent relative to fiat currencies, as can be seen here. Bitcoin supply is more limited than gold, meaning it’s price is likely to exceed gold! As can be seen here.

Why; The US Government’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) will take effect from 1st January 2013. FATCA requires non-US financial institutions, or as FATCA calls them “foreign financial institutions” (FFIs), and other financial intermediaries to help prevent tax evasion by US citizens. FFIs will also be obliged to withhold and pay to the IRS tax equal to 30% with regards to payments that relate to US sourced income and are made to an account that is held by a recalcitrant account holder or a non participating FFI. Note that the penalties for non compliance will include the position of a 30% withholding tax on any incoming payments relating to US sourced income. It is therefore anticipated that financial institutions will have to conform to the new compliance realities and undergo extensive internal research on their clients accounts to identify US citizens and determined there tax status. Trade Copy Hero© can facilitate for US applicant.
