Why use Bitcoin?

There are plenty of advantages to using Bitcoin, many of which include:

Quick, Easy and Convenient

You can send and receive Bitcoin to anyone, anywhere in the world at any time in a matter of a few minutes. It’s also mobile-friendly, so you can transfer funds on the move.

Low Fees

There’s normally no fee when receiving or sending bitcoins, and many wallets will also allow you to pay a fee you’re willing to spend. When there is a fee, you’ll get faster confirmation of your transactions. This amount is very small, most likely pennies in value.


Bitcoin is 100% secure thanks to its protocol and cryptography. When using Bitcoin, users remain in control of their transactions. You’re also protected from identity theft since Bitcoin payments can be made without personal information associated with the transaction.


All Bitcoin transactions are fully available on the blockchain for anybody to verify and use in real-time.
