[Guide] How to start using Bitcoins

Introductory video
In the past few weeks, interest in the online cryptocurrency called Bitcoin has increased dramatically, largely due to its rapidly rising price. While it is relatively simple to use once everything is understood, the initial set-up is admittedly daunting and fairly complex. Given that Bitcoin is remarkably useful as an online transaction tool, I hope to clear up some misunderstandings and outline how to quickly and safely start trading with Bitcoins.
How do Bitcoins help me?
Before explaining how to get started, I’ll briefly summarize why Bitcoin is so attractive for traders:
Alright, cool. I’m on board. So what do I do now?
If you’ve decided to buy Bitcoins, the first step is to choose a wallet. A number of options are available, each with their own advantages. I personally recommend blockchain.info’s wallet, since is easy to create and for the most part hassle-free, while also providing additional security and advanced use features. If you intend to store a large quantity of Bitcoins, however, it may not be ideal for you. If you live in the United States, Coinbase may be your best bet--though you'll need to provide personal information in order to fully utilize its features.
Note that if you are buying a significant amount of Bitcoin, you should not use an online wallet: look into downloading a desktop wallet client to store your bitcoins. They are much more difficult to set up safely, but are the most secure storage method if the proper steps are taken.
Now that I have a wallet, how do I buy Bitcoins?
Unfortunately, here’s where things get a tad complicated, and many people shy away after experiencing difficulties. The primary reason why it is hard to buy is that it is almost impossible to buy Bitcoins using credit cards, PayPal, or any other method that can be charged back. In addition, nearly all exchanges and vendors require some form of identity verification prior to selling; depending on the website, this process may take up to several days. If you anticipate that you will need Bitcoins for a trade in the future, start buying them in advance! Below are a few of the more popular sites to buy Bitcoins internationally; please keep in mind that they all have different verification and funding processes, so you should research which one best meets your needs.
Finally bought my Bitcoins! How do I spend them?
Once you have your wallet set up, but you want to transfer your Bitcoins to another account, simply ask the other person for their Bitcoin Address (it should look like a string of random characters; here is mine, for example: 1GEKaHGoauYSoEHzGj3TRL9tFqrtNA9oUt). The Bitcoins should arrive in the new wallet immediately; as the seller, however, it is important to remember to check that the transaction was confirmed on Blockchain.info (a transaction that can still be reversed will say "Unconfirmed Transaction!" in red).
Of course, use a middleman when buying or selling virtual items for Bitcoins. There is no dispute process: once you send the Bitcoins, they are gone. There is an escrow (middleman) service called BTCrow, which could be cool if someone wants to experiment with it, but I have personally never tried it, and cannot recommend it as I do not know how their dispute process works.
Closing notes:
There's quite a bit more information out there, and I highly recommend researching extensively before committing any money to something this new and potentially unstable.

Closing notes:
I started writing this guide over six months ago, but it didn't seem like too many people were interested in Bitcoins after their price crashed at the end of April. Recently many people have been asking how they work and how to invest in them, so I figured it would be a good time to finish this. Bitcoins are a very curious and exciting currency system, and though I am a zealous supporter, I urge everyone to be careful when investing.
To all the other experienced Bitcoin users out there, if I missed anything, please let me know and I'll edit/expand as necessary.

IWTL how to make a genuinely anonymous transaction using bitcoin online, start to finish.

Hi all,
I know basically nothing about cyber security and I want to learn more. I want to start with being able to make anonymous purchases/money transfers online.
This is brand new territory to me — there's something that I would like to buy online that *is* totally legal where I live, but isn't exactly smiled upon. Just in case it becomes illegal in the future I don't want to end up on a list. What are all of the steps that I need to do to make the purchase anonymously?
This is a general skill that I want to have. I started trying to figure it out on my own and got kinda freaked out. Either it is kinda complicated or I am easily spooked. I am really, really not knowledgeable about these things. I am sorry if some of these questions are dumb.
Questions specific to my situation:
-The online shop in question accepts bitcoin. -The website requires that I create an account with them. Should I create a new email address for this? -I know that I need a VPN, and should probably pay for a good one. What is a good one? Would there be any way to connect my paid VPN account to a transaction made while using the VPN? - Could my internet service provider tell 1) that I am using a VPN and 2) how I used it? - How do I actually buy and use bitcoin? Do I need to use another email address than my primary in order to stay secure once I actually make the transaction?

TLDR: what does a total luddite need to know start to finish to buy and use bitcoin anonymously on a website that accepts payments in bitcoin?

How does the Bitcoin Cash community feel about starting to use the Avalanche consensus mechanism, and potentially basically porting the UTXO set onto Avalanche?

Just curious.

Masumi Hamahira "More and more people gradually start to open their eyes how we can optimize public blockchain namely Bitcoin SV blockchain to make the world a better place in stead of meaningless speculation of crypto asset. Most of us were not aware how we can use internet in 1998. Repeating."

Masumi Hamahira submitted by thacypha to bitcoinsv [link] [comments]

Just remember that "prices" are just a subjective way for people to measure how much they value something using numbers. We don't have to think about the price of Bitcoin in terms of Dollars. That's just how we're conditioned. We could start pricing Bitcoin in terms of time and energy instead.

But way or another, Bitcoin will win out because it is the fairest and most secure accounting information system that the world has ever seen.

Idea: r/Bitcoin creates a simple "How to Start a Local Bitcoin Club" wiki, to promote towns/neighborhoods using Bitcoin for regular buying and selling business between peers

Inspired by this post https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/cp5y2s/10_out_of_22_btc_was_spent_by_bitcoin_subreddit/
I'd love to see us promote the original purpose of Bitcoin, which is a peer-to-peer way to trade money directly between individuals' wallets, rather than via exchanges or other middleman sites (like Bisq) or processing companies (like Bitpay).
I know that I got into Bitcoin when some cool folks on Reddit were giving it away to anyone who asked, and that made me get a wallet and learn how to use it. It was just so much easier than trying to get into an exchange (which I eventually did do, because I wanted to get more).
So, since it seems like one of the biggest challenges to Bitcoin adoption is not having anyone to trade with, and creating local Bitcoin clubs, to help people connect to one another, personally, so that they can offer and receive bitcoin for whatever kinds of exchanges they want to do, could be an extremely useful tool.
Local businesses could sponsor or just join the clubs as well, so that folks in a community build up strong connections for using Bitcoin for normal business.
Also, the more we exchange Bitcoin with people we are closer to (than central exchanges and the total strangers on them) the more we focus on making sure that exchanges are "fair" in the sense of not trying to only trade it away or spend when it's high, and just using it all the time, so that losses and gains are less pronounced, and folks are more comfortable using it all the time.
Maybe we could put together a little "how to form a Bitcoin club" website/video/flyer for anyone to use and share.

I am a total beginner to Bitcoin but I am interested in investing. How do I do it? Where Do I Start? What Wallet should I use? etc.

Like the title said I am new to Bitcoin but I’m interested in investing a couple hundred into it. I will probably end up holding onto bitcoins until the price goes up and if the price goes down I can invest in it more. I really need the right direction to go to such as which wallet is secure, where can I buy them, how much I should invest in 2019, etc.
Note: I am a minor so I don’t know how that affects anything.
