The World of Bitcoins – Digital Currency.

by Andrew Roddick Business Man
Before going into the intricacies of bitcoin exchange and how to buy and sell bitcoins, it will be proper to know what bitcoins really are. The simplest of definition is that it is actually a form of electronic cash that can be used for any purpose, whether it is to pay friends or merchants. As a peer-to-peer digital currency, it can be immediately transmitted safely and securely between two people, wherever they may be in the world. Within the Bitcoin system, it is a unit of currency and is just a number related to a Bitcoin address.   

Trading in stocks, shares and securities and other financial papers are at best often highly speculative on stock exchanges and other fiscal institutions around the world. But a bitcoin exchange guarantees safety, liquidity and scalability in the world of the bitcoin and virtual currency. This is vital as the bitcoin route often bypasses traditional government and federal channels, thus making it very difficult to keep an eye on. Further, absence of KYC or AML norms for personal transactions necessitates stringent monitoring systems to be in place and followed by the bitcoins exchanges. All data is encrypted and regular external audits ensure that security measures are in place. The whole network has a set of protocols protected by cryptography.

Coming to the question of how to buy and sell bitcoins, it will be in order to take up the first aspect. Bitcoins can be acquired in a number of ways and the most widespread is to buy them from the Bitcoin Exchanges. One can take them against reimbursement for goods and services offered or trade them against traditional currency for specific services. Bitcoins can even be exchanged in-person against cash through a local directory or by joining a mining pool. Finally, one can even create a new block with 25 bitcoins with the required transaction fees.
  
Selling bitcoins too is as easy as it can get without any complications. The first obvious factor is that one should load the bitstamp account with bitcoins. Once that is done, the buy/sell page of the account should be accessed and the order to sell should be placed by clicking on the appropriate button. If an immediate sell order is placed, the bitcoins will be sold to the highest bidder in the market automatically. On the other hand, a limit order will restrict the sale to the price the owner of the bitcoins is willing to give them up. In both cases, the proceeds of the sale can be withdrawn in USD or Euros. It can therefore be seen that how to buy and sell bitcoins can be done individually or preferably through a bitcoin exchange for added security and safety.
