What is Bitcoin?


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I think Bitcoin is the next big thing... read in the WSJ recently that the Chinese are as usual suspect and trying to block BC payments. Paranoics! They should launch their own Bitcoin exchange insted... even more money coming in this way

Anyone knows a good trading platform [for analysis purposes] where one can trade it ? it moves more than gold.

gdax.com is Coinbase's exchange for BTC, ETH and LTC.

It sounds too good to be true... It is important to understand that cryptocurrency has its disadvantages too. But for newcomers in crypto market the attached video should be very useful. Some kind of introduction to the crypto basis.

Cab be bitcoin competitiive enough?

Bitcoin cannot be competitor for Ethereum or some other promising crypto. In difference from ETH it seems to have no bright future. I’d like also to pay your attention at MGO, provided by MobileGo. Especially after the start of cooperation between MobileGo and Xsolla.
What do you think about the prospects of MGO token? Can it be a competitor for ETH or bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a decentralized Peer-to-Peer form of digital money backed by security of the blockchain.
