BASIC QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

FAQ BITCOIN EXCHANGES

What are Cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies are virtual (digital) currencies that operate as a decentralized network using cryptography to secure all transactions and a public ledger called the Blockchain. The Blockchain is a database that records all coin transfers. The ecosystem of cryptocurrencies includes coins and tokens.

What is the Block-Chain?

Block-chain is an open-source decentralized technology using a public ledger to verify and record all transactions of a particular cryptocurrency. After the completion of a certain number of transactions, it generates a new block. This block is actually a database entry, which stores information about the present and all previous transactions. The block-chain processes are performed using an ecosystem of millions of community computers.

What is Spread?

Spread is the difference between the BID and the ASK price. In our comparison table, the 'SPREAD' compares the ASK/BID difference to the BTC/USD Fix Price.

Spread Calculation: { ( Buying Price - Selling Price ) / Fix Price } X 100

Where,

Fix Price = (Ask Price + Bid Price ) /2

What is a Wallet?

A Bitcoin wallet is a software used to store, manage, and transfer Bitcoins and other crypto-coins. Actually, Bitcoins are stored as private keys (secret numbers).

There are different types of wallets:

(i) Smartphone-based wallets (use the phone’s camera to scan QR codes)

(ii) PC-Based wallets

(iii) Wallets in Central Servers (requires the creation of an online account)

(iv) Specialized hardware wallets (for example, Trezor or Ledger)

What is Mining?

Bitcoin mining refers to the process of verifying all Bitcoin transactions and include them in the public ledger (blockchain). Miners get new Bitcoins as a reward for their efforts. The whole process is fully decentralized with miners operating in all countries. As more miners join a network, mining becomes increasingly less profitable.

How to Choose a Cryptocurrency Exchange?

Cryptocurrency exchanges are common places to buy or to sell Bitcoins and other digital coins. These are some key issues for choosing an exchange:

-Safety of money (headquarters base, years in the market)

-Available deposit and withdrawal methods (coins, cards, bank wire, Neteller, Paypal, Neteller, etc.)

-Fees and Spreads between Ask/Bid

-Responsiveness of the Customer Service

-Online Reviews for this exchange (caution, 50% of all reviews are fake)
