BITCOIN - BEGINNER'S FAQ

In non-technical language, Bitcoin is a digital currency in which transactions can be performed without the need for a credit card or central bank. It's designed to enable users to send money over the Internet in a very simple and efficient way.

In short, no one runs Bitcoin. Bitcoin is run collectively by the users who uses the Bitcoin Client, and any changes to the Bitcoin system have to be approved by the majority of users before they are implemented.

A Bitcoin address is a unique identifier which allows you to receive Bitcoins. With PayPal you send funds to an email address, and similarly with Bitcoin you send funds to a Bitcoin address. For example, this is a Bitcoin addresses: 1Lv1QzzKYeGnwXM4zzUNuHejQt8KkmUfLU

Please verify that you have copied the destination address exactly before sending Bitcoins to it. Bitcoin transactions are not reversible!

A private key is a secret code which allows the user to prove his ownership of his Bitcoins. Every Bitcoin address has a matching private key, which is saved in the wallet file of the person who owns the balance. The private key is mathematically related to the Bitcoin address, and is designed so that the Bitcoin address can be calculated from the private key, but importantly, the same cannot be done in reverse.

Please keep your private keys safe, and make periodic backups to prevent the loss of Bitcoins. Anyone with your private keys can spend your Bitcoins!

A token sum is imposed to provide some incentive to the miners to include the transaction in the blockchain. Please see the bitcoin wiki for calculating minimum fees.

It means that the transaction has not yet been included in the blockchain, and is still reversible. A transaction typically takes around 10 minutes to be confirmed. When that happens, it is said that one confirmation has occurred for the transaction. With each subsequent block that is found, the number of confirmations is increased by one. To protect against double spending, a transaction should not be considered as confirmed until a certain number of confirmations is seen.

The blockchain is a public ledger of all transactions in the Bitcoin network. Blockchain.info allows you to navigate the bitcoin blockchain. We also operate Bitcoin's largest and most secure wallet service.

Miners are individuals who run computer systems to repeatedly calculate hashes with the intention to create a successful block and earn coins from transaction fees and new coins created with the block itself. The term references an analogy of gold miners who dig gold out of the ground and thus 'discover' new gold that can be used to create new coins, with a similar kind of discovery occurring with a successful hash to create new Bitcoins.

The number of Bitcoins in existence will never exceed 21 million. To see how many Bitcoins are in circulation, please go to: https://blockchain.info/charts/total-bitcoins

The current market price for a Bitcoin is always changing due to the supply and demand for it. Bitcoins are traded at Bitcoin Exchanges. A historical Bitcoin price chart can be found at: https://blockchain.info/charts/market-price

Bitcoin clients are the base level of technology for conducting Bitcoin transactions, and they store the keys needed to conduct a Bitcoin transaction. They come in multiple flavors, and are customized to fit different niches. To buy bitcoins must have, for first, a bitcoin address on which to receive.
