No. Unfortunately, there will always be examples of bad people taking advantage of good things. Given the nature of privacythat comes along with cryptocurrencies, scammers will do whatever it takes to trick people into sending funds to them, andwith cryptocurrencies, it’s nearly impossible to identify someone solely from the wallet address they provided you to sendfunds to.
When sending funds to anyone, always use your best judgment and never forget that if something sounds “too good to be true”,it most likely is.
If you wouldn’t feel comfortable sending an envelope of cash to a complete stranger’s P.O. Box, do NOT send Bitcoin or anyother cryptocurrency to them either. Once a you send cryptocurrency, you cannot stop, cancel, or reverse the transaction.Please have 100% confidence in the identity of any recipient you intend to transfer funds to
Cryptocurrency, also referred to as Digital Currency, is a relatively new form of technology which is being used to exchange agreed-upon values to goods and services. It’s just like regular, traditional currency; however, it uses cryptography tosecure transactions and control the creation of its native currency.
Bitcoin is a form of digital currency. This means that if you have bitcoins you can use them as cash instead of handing billsand physical coins to the merchant. Currently, bitcoins are primarily used for online purchases and transfers as they are moreliquid than physical currency (with lower transaction costs). There are thousands of online retailers that accept bitcoin withthe number growing daily. Bitcoin is “The Internet of Money.”
All cryptocurrency transactions are stored in a public ledger called the blockchain. It’s not maintained by any singularauthority, but rather by a network of communicating nodes and miners running open-source software. Transactions are sent tothis network using readily available software applications, such as wallet apps, and nodes validate those transactions, addthem to their copy of the blockchain, their ledger, and then forward these additions to other nodes. The blockchain is adistributed database, meaning each network node verifies and stores its own copy of the blockchain.
Bitcoin mining is comparable to the mining of gold, but its digital form. The process involves specialized computers solvingalgorithmic equations or hash functions. These problems help miners to confirm blocks of transactions held within the network.Bitcoin mining provides a reward for miners by paying out in Bitcoin in turn the miners confirm transactions on theblockchain. Miners introduce new Bitcoin into the network and also secure the system with transaction confirmation. They arealso rewarded network fees for when they harvest new coin and a time when the last bitcoin is found mining will continue.
Bitcoin was first introduced to the public back in 2009 and pioneered the field as the very first decentralized cryptocurrencyand the decentralized control is by use of Bitcoin’s distributed ledger, called the blockchain. Bitcoin is the most populardigital currency and was the first digital currency to implement the blockchain as a core component.
