5 things you need to Know about Bitcoin in Nigeria

What is Bitcoin?

The first question which comes to the mind of most but once answered can lead to you deciding whether the digital currency will be able to meet your needs be they for consuming or investing. Bitcoin can be likened to the Naira on many levels. Having a wallet which is similar to the bank account you may have for your Naira, allows for easy but secure access to your money on demand. The Bitcoin is a currency in its own right and you can buy from a local exchange such as NairaEx and use it identically as you would the Naira sending and receiving. It also has incorporated the Blockchain which is a framework allowing you to keep track of transactions and increasing the overall transparency as you know exactly where your money went and how much.

The Bitcoin Price?

Bitcoin price is fairly stable and reliable for consumers. Holding value is a key factor when choosing whether to invest or hold Bitcoin as when you compare it to the Naira, Bitcoin is much more stable with a solid exchange rate so long term holders are unlikely to see a crash in value while Naira users are particularly susceptible to political movements and commodity price changes. However for investors shorting Bitcoin is particularly beneficial as with a number of exchanges you can buy cheaply and sell at profits within a matter of minutes as exchanges such as NairaEX offer some of the most competitive rates on Bitcoin. Purchasing Bitcoin will also allow you to delve into trading alternative cryptocoins which are much more volatile but mirror Bitcoin in terms of economy.

Web wallets such as Blockchain.info have become popular lightweight alternatives to downloading the whole Bitcoin application core. Navigating to the Blockchain.info website at the top you can select to create a new wallet. Within a few minutes through the guided prices you can choose your own password and are eventually greeted by the dashboard which shows all incoming and outgoing transactions as well as our balance.
