Bitcoin allows online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution. Bitcoin has a finite supply of 21 million, and a set distribution schedule, making it a scarce asset and inherently deflationary. Transactions on the Bitcoin network are immutable, and fast compared to traditional methods.
Purchasing crypto can be done through an exchange, a brokerage, or peer-to-peer. Customers can purchase either the underlying asset or a derivative of the asset.
Sending and receiving Bitcoin is easy. To receive Bitcoin, all you need is a Bitcoin address. To send Bitcoin you will need to generate an address, initiate the transaction, and monitor the status.
