Suggested Places to Buy Bitcoins:a) CashApp – Fast and easy
b) Paxful – Buy bitcoin with paypal, zelle, venmo, gift cards etc
c) Robinhood App
d) LibertyX – buy bitcoin on their app or at any 7-11, CVS, or Rite Aid (usa only)
e) Local Coin (Buy with Interac E-transfer for Canadians)
f) Localbitcoins.com
g) Coinmama – Fast
h) Search Google for a Bitcoin atm in your city (takes cash, gives you Bitcoins – Easiest & Fastest Method. You can now do this in 2 minutes with LibertyX at any 7-11, CVS or Riteaid)
Step 3) Purchase your bitcoins.
Remember, you don’t have to a full bitcoin, you may buy decimal amounts ie 0.05btc / 0.0675btc etc – according to what you need.
Please note all bitcoin ATM’s etc take a % for a transaction fee – always calculate that when purchasing your bitcoins as typically you’ll need to buy 3-5% more than your order purchase price.
Step 4) Proceed to www.idviking.com and place your order!!
Step 5) It is IMPORTANT to buy your bitcoins and send them to your own wallet first, before ordering from us. Sometimes it takes a few hours after you first order your bitcoins, before they arrive in your wallet. (with an ATM this is instant).
Voila! You’re Done!
* One thing to note for Canadians using bitcoin ATM’s, the company that runs Honey Badger or Badger Coin in Canada are known scammers, please do not use them as they have been regularly defrauding people out of money. A quick search of their reviews will also confirm this is. There are many other bitcoin ATM’s out there, do not use them.

[Guide] How to send money from abroad to Lebanon?

This questions is being asked a lot so we might as well post all the possible options as off July 1, 2020.

-------------- International Bank Transfer in Fresh USD Account --------------

1. Open a fresh money account in your bank
Blom Bank: https://www.blomretail.com/retail/bank-accounts-lebanon/fresh-money-accounts
Bank Audi: https://www.bankaudi.com.lb/externalaccount
Byblos Bank: https://www.byblosbank.com/personal/accounts/current/
Fresh Money Account or External Account is a bank account that has real USD, unlike old/regular bank accounts which have lollars in them. (Lollars are Lebanese Dollars aka Dollars stuck in Lebanese banks, aka Dollars in bank accounts before October 2019)
In order to receive an international incoming bank transfer, make sure you go to your bank before the transfer is done and open an external or fresh money bank account. Do NOT transfer into your old USD account.
2. Tell the bank you're expecting to receive an international incoming bank transfer and want to withdraw it in USD
Some banks are giving out the entire incoming bank transfer in USD. Other banks are giving 80% of the incoming transfer in USD while giving the rest in LBP. Make sure you talk with your bank and negotiate the entire thing before any transfer is done
3. Transfer and withdraw the money in USD
Transfer can take from 4-7 business days and costs will be incurred on the sender and the receiver
Fees: Varies between 5/1000 and 10/1000

-------------- Bitcoin --------------

Check this quick video LINK
1. Use your foreign (not Lebanese) credit/debit card to purchase BTC (Bitcoin)
You can purchase BTC (Bitcoin) from
When you purchase Bitcoin through any of the mentioned websites, you will be able to send Bitcoins to a wallet of your choice or keep them on the exchange.
2. The person who's going to receive the money in Lebanon opens a bitcoin wallet
The person who's going to receive the money in Lebanon opens a bitcoin wallet that can be done in less than 2 minutes using any of the free wallets such as (BlueWallet,Coinomi, Exodus)
This can be done for free on a laptop or mobile phone.
3. The sender sends the bitcoin from his wallet to the receiver's wallet
4. The transfer could take up to 10-20 minutes and should not take more than $1 per transaction.
5. Once the receiver (Person in Lebanon) receives the bitcoin, he can list them for sale in exchange for USD or black market rate LBP
However you can skip this step by arranging a trade by yourself so instead of sending it to your family or friends you can send it to the person who is willing to buy it from you and they will deliver LBP as per your arrangement or through OMT.
6. Bitcoin can be sold on
https://localbitcoins.com/
Live market places on Telegram: https://bitcoinduliban.org/communities
7. If someone needs to immediately sell his bitcoin, he can offer a lower price (lower than the exchange rate) and a buyer will most probably immediately accept the sale
8. Selling bitcoin in exchange for USD, requires the buyer and the seller to meet physically
9. Selling bitcoin in exchange for LBP (black market rate), does not require the buyer and the seller to meet, the transaction can be completed by using OMT.
For more information about how bitcoin works please check the AMA that was done here in our subreddit, and check https://bitcoinduliban.org/

-------------- Western Union --------------

1. Transferring money from abroad through Western Union is possible but not advisable because of the huge loss that will be incurred on the receiver
2. Check today's rate here: https://www.omt.com.lb/en
3. For example, today for every 1 USD that Western Union/OMT receives from abroad, they will give out 3,800 LBP. At the same time the black market rate today is $1 = 8,500 LBP. Check the current black market rate here
On August 6, 2020, BDL released a new announcement requesting all money transfer companies to give out the money in USD. The announcement can be found here.
Fees: Usually around 20/1000
Be careful when using these services as high fees might be incurred.

Buy bitcoin with gift card or debit card NO KYC or Verification with ID

I’ve spent easily 6 hours looking for a website that I can buy bitcoin with no KYC but have only been lied to by websites that do require ID. Very discouraging and tiring to find no website that works since now every website needs kyc this year :(
Some Info: I used to use paxful but now they require KYC just to use their damn wallet. Which means I have $30 worth of bitcoin lost there.
I live with my parents so I can’t prove I live at any address with documents nor do I want to.
I have a debit card and could buy with that or buy a gift card online and buy bitcoin using that. But I cannot get a Visa or mastercard gift card online. So a legit website using amazon or best buy gift cards or something would work. No kyc obviously.
I live in the US so sites that work here
I’m trying to buy around $100 USD of bitcoin
I don’t want to have to wait a day just get the bitcoin so a quick website would be great
I use blockchain as a wallet but they kyc if I wanted to buy
I don’t want to meet in person to do anything or can’t do the Bank transfer to cash deposit to someone
I have tried this websites and they don’t work for me: Coinmama Changelly (lies about kyc) Bitsell X (Tried using but redirected me to changelly) Also No reviews
Ipayyou (looks suspicious; don’t want to get scammed) Paxful Bitrefill (sold out of crypto vouchers; could figure it out) Cryptovouchers (they kyc don’t want to lose money) Fold app (don’t think you can buy bitcoin using a giftcard only the other way around) Cash App (kyc) BaseFex (couldn’t figure out the derivative markets; don’t think I can just buy using a debit card either) Agora Desk; I might use but it looks suspicious still and would have to use cashapp to buy someone Wall of coins (Have to go in person somewhere) Switchere (Scared of kyc) HodlHodl (Not avaible in us) Bisq (Hard to use; Couldn’t figure out plus high fees don’t want to get scammed) Local cryptos (Dont support payment methods i want) Bitvalve (Inactive sellers wouldn’t respond) TotalCoin app (Barely any seller probably inactive) Coin corner (Not in Us plus lies about no kyc) Kyc not me (none that fit my requirements) Kucoin (only one seller that is selling $1000 or more) Bitquick (Have to go to bank to deposit cash) Buy crypto today (Low amount of sellers)
This is very depressing because it once was very easy and enjoyable to buy bitcoin now their is all this kyc and have to wonder if i’m getting scammed.
Might have to use bitsell x or Agora desk but would rather not.
If you can help or give a good website I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Why BitcoinCombination.com is the best Bitcoin combination to make money.

Why BitcoinCombination.com is the best Bitcoin combination to make money.
NOTE: Bitcoin is highly volatile and not a place to invest funds you can’t lose. While there are some stories of people making a fortune on Bitcoin in 2017, many people lost as it fell from its peak. Some people think it is going to be worth $1 million or more while others call the entire system a fraud ready to fall.


I love Bitcoin. I like making money with this cryptocurrency. I work with different platforms, as each one has certain nuances. But most often, I use the one described below. Why? Well, first of all, it is safe to buy with PayPal. Truly anonymous commerce, even registration on the site is not required. In addition to FAQ, each service has a "How it works" button. And what is important for me is the black background of the site because when trading on sites with a white background, my eyes get tired, and vision deteriorates.
So, my favorite combination is Bitcoin to USD using PayPal.

BitcoinCombination is an independent trading community that unites the interests of investors, traders, and entrepreneurs.

Where, with the help of the decentralized, integrated bitcoincombination.com platform and the FABC team (which provides the functionality of the BitcoinCombination community capital movement), participants have the opportunity to increase their capital, with complete anonymity of personal data.
Something from the FAQ.
What is bitcoincombination.com?
bitcoincombination.com is a decentralized, anonymous, integrated trading platform.
Do I need to send any documents or pass verification?
No. You use this resource anonymously.
How can I be considered anonymous if I have to enter billing information when buying, investing, or using another service on the website?
The anonymity of platform users is protected by security codes ©sessions technology during authorizations on the website, without using the registration of the users themselves. And also, payments using FABC, and the complete deletion of personal data after the completion of a financial transaction.

Services

This is my first article on reddit.com, and I decided to dedicate it to not a big website presentation for those who are also passionate about Bitcoin and want to make money on it. If someone is interested in this topic, write your comments. If you have any questions about BitcoinCombination.com, I'll expand on the topic.
By the way, if you want to know the forecast of the Bitcoin rate for the next day, the site has a news subscription. Besides, there is a simple and offer subscription.

/r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers please read

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
Some great introductions for new users are My first bitcoin, Bitcoin explained and ELI5 Bitcoin. Also, the following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Also have to give mention to Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here, here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. Potential upcoming protocol improvements here. Scaling resources here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!), and of course Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper that started it all! :)

Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges for Beginners

Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges for Beginners
Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges for Beginners
Before we get into exchanges, let’s refresh our minds about what cryptocurrency is. The concept behind cryptocurrencies is relatively simple, while the math and technology are not. Essentially, a cryptocurrency is a virtual or digital currency that utilizes cryptography as a means for protection and security.
Cryptography is also used to regulate the creation of additional units, so as to not drive the overall digital currency market wild. One of the greatest appeals of cryptocurrencies is that they are not regulated by any government agencies. The most popular digital asset is the bitcoin, followed by ethereum.

What Are Cryptocurrency Exchanges?

Cryptocurrencies can be traded through cryptocurrency exchanges. These cryptocurrency exchanges are platforms through which you can purchase or sell digital currencies for dollars, euros, and pounds, as well as other digital assets. For example, you can sell bitcoins and purchase dollars with the sold bitcoins, or you could exchange bitcoins for ether. These exchanges are a vital part of the virtual currency expansion rate.
There are private exchanges, which are exclusive and operate by invite only, as well as those available for the public. Local exchanges also exist. Some are easier to use than others are; certain exchanges are so flexible that digital assets can be traded directly through the built-in chat features of specific popular messengers, like Telegram.

What to Consider When Picking the Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Here are a few things you will want to consider before picking the best cryptocurrency exchange suited for your trading and speculative needs.
Fees – Almost all exchanges charge fees for you to do business on their platforms. Make sure that when you are signing up or committing yourself to a specific exchange that you know everything about its fees.
Verification Requirements and Security – These are vital to understand before starting out on an exchange. Most exchanges require some sort of identity verification in the form of a passport, driver’s license, proof of residence, or other similar document before joining. The more complex the verification process, the safer the exchange platform.
Exchange Rates – Exchange rates are also important, as you don’t want to join a cryptocurrency exchange that charges draconian fees for transactions and exchanges. That just wouldn’t be fair to you or financially savvy.
Reputation – The best cryptocurrency exchanges always have ups and downs. However, the general opinion of the top ones is positive. The best exchanges have a solid reputation and are well trusted by traders.
Region – It’s also important to find an exchange that supports your geographic region. Some exchanges may support all of the countries in South America, while not supporting any of the countries in Asia, and vice versa. If you are living in Russia, for example, make sure you pick the best exchange platform that supports your region.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the best cryptocurrency exchanges out there.

Security

Something which is important to bare in mind when choosing a cryptocurrency exchange to make your trades and purchases on is their security measures. It is well-known that many exchanges have been hacked in the past, most notably the Mt Gox exchange, which people are still feeling the fall-out from ever since.
You should know that the your funds or coins on an exchange or not really yours, unless you own the private keys to the wallet of your coins you are relying on someone else to be custodian of your funds.
Luckily there are some basic measures you can take when using an exchange. The most important is to never store more there than you are willing to lose, if you have a significant balance, you should withdraw it back to your own wallet and for extra security, use a Hardware wallet to secure these funds.
Exchanges should be used for quick purchases of your desired cryptocurrency or for trading an amount you are happy with. They should never be used as your primary wallet, that is not their intended function.
Another important step to take is to use all the security options available on the site, make sure that two-factor authentication (2FA) is setup correctly and you use an app like Authy or Google authenticator. Do not use the mobile phone option which texts you a code, this is not safe as their have been a number of high-profile hacks involving sim-swaps which allow a would-be hacker to take over your phone number and then gain access to your account.

Coinbase

Coinbase is one of the, if not the, most trusted cryptocurrency exchange platforms in the world. It is also the largest digital asset exchange platform in the world. The platform supports more than 32 countries and has more than 4 million active users. Traders are allowed to acquire and sell bitcoins using their bank account, credit card, PayPal, and other payment methods, as well. In order to begin trading on Coinbase, you will have to set up an e-wallet for buying and selling cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, users have to be able to link a valid bank account in order to purchase bitcoins.

Currently, fully verified U.S. residents are only allowed to hold up to 50,000 bitcoins per day. Overall, Coinbase has a great reputation and is highly respected in the trader community. Most transactions through Coinbase only have a 1 percent transaction fee in addition to any fees that your selected payment method may carry.
As with CEX, you can only purchase a few currencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. You would then need to use Changelly to convert these to other crypto currencies.
Another benefit of registering with Coinbase is the fact you are then able to use the Coinbase Pro exchange which is owed by the same company. Coinbase Pro allows to more advanced trading features such as margin trading and Market, Limit, & Stop Orders. Coinbase Pro also has lower fees than Coinbase.

Binance

Binance is a newer exchange but one we have grown to love, it has a wide range of cryptocurrencies available to purchase and trade and has a basic and advanced view which you can switch between easily. Their fees are very reasonable and they allow you to register and trade immediately without having to verify your account. You will then be able to make withdrawals of up to 2 BTC per day, if you want to withdraw higher amounts you will then need to upload your photo ID and a “selfie” photo.

The public opinion of Binance at this time is very high with people praising the speed of the site, ease of use and cheap fees.
For more details you can read our complete review of Binance here.

KuCoin

KuCoin is a new but very exciting exchange based in South Korea. They operate similarly to Binance in the fact that they list new altcoins much quicker than other exchanges so it’s a good place to purchase cryptocurrencies shortly after their ICO meaning there is a greater opportunity to profit by getting in early.
The interface is very clean and modern and much easier to operate than other older and more clunky exchanges.
They also offer their own token KCS which allows all holders to receive a daily share of profits of the platform, this is a great token to hold as you are paid in the many different currencies that the site allows people to trade in.

LocalBitcoins

LocalBitcoins is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency exchange used in most big cities around the world. The general principle behind this exchange is that you can find people who live in your area or city and meet with them in person to conduct an exchange. The platform also offers options for purchasing digital currencies via PayPal, Square, direct-to-bank transfers, and many other payment-processing methods. The platform charges a small fee of 1 percent per transaction in cases where sellers apply their own exchange rate.

Similar to the way Uber passengers and drivers are rated, LocalBitcoins applies a rating to each trader that uses the platform, and this rating is publicly displayed. Trades first have to undergo an escrow process to ensure that nobody will be scammed by using the platform. Once everything is verified, the funds and cryptocurrencies transfer between traders. LocalBitcoins takes a commission of 1 percent from sellers. W

CoinMama

CoinMama is a large bitcoin brokerage that allows users to acquire coins with their debit or credit cards. The platform issues small fees for transactions. To make up for this, however, the limits for how many bitcoins a user can buy are much higher in comparison to Coinbase. Users can acquire up to $5,000 of coins per day or up to $20,000 per month. All users need to do to use CoinMama is to set up an account, log in, and navigate to the profile page section to fill in personal information.

Following this, users will be introduced to a page that allows them to select how many bitcoins they would like to purchase, and once a fitting amount has been selected, users will be allowed to add their preferred payment methods and bitcoin addresses. Users will also be required to verify their phone number and email address. CoinMama does not require most users to upload their government-issued ID. After completing the aforementioned steps and passing the verification process, users will be able to acquire bitcoins through CoinMama.

CEX.IO

CEX.IO is one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. However, despite being referred to as a cryptocurrency exchange, CEX.IO can only be used with bitcoins and ethereum which are the main two trading pairs for alt-coins. If you want to purchase other currencies, you can use CEX and then a service named Changelly to convert them to many other cryptos.
The platform is registered with the FINCEN and applies KYC and AML principles. In other words, users have to completely verify their identity before they can get involved in any trades with this platform. Currently, the platform supports purchases with credit cards, wire transfers, or SEPA transfers for European residents.

https://preview.redd.it/dvrr5yto1ze31.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=46fa36889957b7742bf1eb1f682c6c8c31c1f164
Once you enter a trade, the platform automatically calculates the price of the transaction and freezes the exchange rate for 120 seconds, which is quite convenient. However, many users note that there are occasional hidden fees. CEX.IO has a flat fee of 7 percent for anything involving fiat currencies. For example, if you acquire $100 in bitcoins, you will only receive $93 in coins.

Bittrex

Bittrex is well established and highly regarded crypto trading platform, with many coins and tokens to choose from. The interface is not for complete beginner’s but you should be able to find your way around after a little while.

https://preview.redd.it/xa00ycmp1ze31.jpg?width=808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e42aedf2b51ff01005847ec0867c69ba94e8a7dd
Read our full review of Bittrex here.
Unsurprisingly, Bittrex’s most popular trading pairs are BTC and ETH. It must be noted that the exchange currently does not offer any kind of fiat-to-crypto pairs, e.g. with U.S. dollars, euros, or British pounds). One thing investors can do is buy USDT (Tether tokens) via wired bank transfers in order to use USDT for crypto-to-crypto exchanges.
However, you’ll need to be fully verified and willing to slap down at least $10,000 USD for Bittrex to even consider the transfer. And we here at Blockonomi don’t remind this approach anyways; there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding Tether lately, and it’s best just to stay away for now until further developments actualize.

A Brief Guide To Dent

Hi People, Here is the last call before DENT take-off.
As a quantitative trader, I know that trading is a disaster for the ones who does not know what they are doing. Trading is a business, not a casino, if you do not have a well tested system where you know your odds, do not put your hard earned money into the exchanges, not only for cryptos but also for other assets like FX. stocks etc.
So, my advise to people who are interested in cryptos is not to day trade, never, you will fail. Do your research, find an undervalued coin, invest in it and wait. Do not panic and sell in every bottom or spike, keep cool. Sell when market cap is where you think it should be in the medium term.
In this post I will try answering the following questions on DENT:
  1. WHY I HAVE INVESTED IN DENT?
  2. THEIR PARTNERSHIPS
  3. HOW TO BUY?
  4. MINING
  5. PRICE PREDICTION
  6. WHO OWNS HOW MANY DENTS as of 13th Dec 2017
**WHY DENT:
Strategic reasons:
There is no second hand mobile data market in place at the moment.
They are challenging a clear inefficiency in the mobile data market, which is lack of flexible and cheap cross border and/or cross operator agreements between telcos in most of the world.
Dent's target segment is clear, low income people in emerging markets mostly with prepaid cards. There is big cross border low income labor mobility in most parts of the globe.
They have agreements with good data aggregators like Aquto and U2opia that have agreements with almost all telco operators and millions in their client base.
Check this out: https://www.dentwireless.com/pr
Mobile data market is growing.
Dent has a big scaling potential unlike niche Blockchain solutions, positioned and promoted correctly, it can go up to 10m+ customers easily.
Offering can be extended to Internet of Things, Mobile Advertising etc.
If this initiative can be converted into a global mobile data exchange, I can not imagine the scale.
Tactical reasons:
Market cap is at USD 20M.
2018 roadmap has been published, not that solid but promising.
Mobile app for IOS will be out in two weeks for US and Mexico markets.
Android app will be out in 1q 2018.
Unsold coins will be released back to the company to be used with in the business model, these can not go back to the exchanges, so exchange traded supply is fixed.
Dent is a marketplace for buyers and sellers of data, so as the business develops, prices on the exchanges will rise.
Profit potential:
Traded in Hitbtc, EtherDelta and Coinrail with very low volumes now, it will probably start moving in two weeks with the mobile app launch.
After some customer acquisitions and the initial spin of the wheel, public interest and volumes will grow and new exchanges will come I assume in 2q 2018, this is when the big move should start.
With USD 20m market cap now and looking at market caps of coins with comparable industry offerings, I see good profit potential in 2018 given very good marketing promotion.
Feedback to Dent Team:
It is all about execution, Dent team should improve on a couple of points,
Website should be oriented around the solution and needs a fancy design.
Marketing promotion on digital channels should be kicked off.
Community should be managed in a more pro-active manner, social platforms needs to be leveraged more with increased responsiveness.
The gap between the specifics of the business model and the high level White Paper needs to be breached.
Investor relations needs to be structure to ease concerns of exchange traders, there is too much noise.
**PARTNERSHIPS:
Dent is as real as Ethereum and Bitcoin. Even more as it is challenging a big inefficiency in the mobile data market. SECOND HAND MOBILE DATA>
Partnerships are with well known data aggregators like Aquto in North and South America and U2topia in Asia. I think direct agreements with telcos is not a necessity at the moment as these aggregators already have those agreements and millions in customer base.
Check for the list of DENT partners:
https://www.dentwireless.com/pr
For more details on u2opia, check out this announcement:
http://media.u2opiamobile.com/blog/u2opiadent
**HOW TO BUY:
Dent is traded in Ethereum markets. Put your money via Cex.IO, Coinmama or other platforms, buy Ethereum, open an account in the most liquid exchange for Dent, which is Hitbtc, send your Ethereums and buy DENT.
Do not try to send them to your personal wallet for a while as Dent is an ERC20 token and ERC20 transfers are taking very long to complete globally due to Ethereum network clogging these days, so just keep them in the exchange for some time.
**MINING:
Dent can not be mined.
**PRICE PREDICTION:
I think it has a potential similar to Stellar Lumens and Populus as they are large scale applications challenging big industries. Let me be the oracle for a minute: - Mobile app launch on 18th Dec 2018 + 4 days for validation, Dent goes up to 0.000025 ETH - Then a correction comes and moves slowly up and down until mid January - With the first data of Mobile Transactions and sentiment, if it is good, Market cap moves to USD 200M - A correction comes, a new rally starts with android app release - If customer base grows well, market cap USD 500m in 2q 2018 and over 1bln in 4q 2018.
**WHO OWNS:
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS MY GUESS LOOKING AT ETHERSCAN DATA, WHITEPAPER and OWNERS Q&A.
1 DENTWIRELESS 29.029.183.987 - 29.0292% This is the company stock
2 DENTWIRELESS 14.984.139.068 - 14.9841% This is the 1st chunk of quarterly release back to the company
3 DENTWIRELESS 14.984.139.068 - 14.9841% 2nd chunk
4 DENTWIRELESS 14.984.139.068 - 14.9841% 3rd chunk
5 DENTWIRELESS 14.984.139.068 - 14.9841% 4th chunk
6 BIG INVESTOR 1.111.822.451 - 1.1118%
7 HITBTC 595.312.957 - 0.5953% This is what traders have in Hitbtc, it has increased 200% in the last four days, an indication of ICO buyers transferring to the exchange to sell, this shows it will go up faster after a certain level which I will not tell to get rich faster than you.
8 ETHERDELTA 291.861.589 - 0.2919%
9 I CAN NOT GUESS 258.443.988 - 0.2584%
10 BIG INVESTOR 252.480.000 - 0.2525%
Total supply 100.000.000.000 In Circulation 10.600.000.000 Exchane Traded around 1 billion as of now
No worries, circulating supply will not increase, this is good. Company owned supply is for business operations.
****UPDATE: 20 Dec 2017, market cap is USD 100m now:) We made more than 10x in 3 days. I hope you have invested.
****UPDATE: 25 Dec 2017, cap is 350m:)
****UPDATE: EXCHANGE DENT vs MOBILE APP DENT clarification below
App and exchanges are two different worlds for two different segments of people.
In the App world, there are 90bln DENTs. App is for trading data (buy, send, sell) and DENT is the medium. This is for a Mexican worker in the US sending data to his wife in Mexico. This is what he cares. He does not care DENT price, he cares USD price of data. This guy does not buy DENT to make money.
In the Crypto world or in investor wallets there are 10bln DENTs. Crypto world is for us, investors and traders. You buy DENT for its expected future value, like you buy Apple Stock. This has nothing to do with the app in general, with two exceptions I will explain.
Price of DENT in the app is crypto world (exchanges) price plus a margin. So real price is always set at the exchanges. Exchange traded DENT(circulating supply of 10bln) can not increase, so you can not transfer DENT to the exchanges from the app, but you can do the opposite.
If you want to send data, buy it on the app, if you are a trader or an investor, buy it on the exchanges.
Only TWO practical intersections between exchange DENT and app DENT are
ONE: you can send DENT to the app from the exchange and buy data, as DENT appreciates, you can buy more data
TWO: app price of DENT is exchange average plus a margin
****UPDATE: A simple Equation on DENT price in the app.
Dent price on the app = Dent price on the exchanges + a margin. So app price is dynamic and indexed to exchange price.
Say, 1 DENT = 1 USD = 1 GB today. If DENT price goes up to USD 2, this equation becomes 1 DENT = 2 USD = 2 GB.
Appreciation of DENTs price means you can buy more data with one DENT, it does not mean that dollar price of data is going up.

[uncensored-r/Bitcoin] /r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers please read

The following post by BinaryResult is being replicated because some comments within the post(but not the post itself) have been silently removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:

The original post's content was as follows:

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For lots of additional video resources check out the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
  • Limited Supply - There will only ever be 21,000,000 bitcoins created and they are issued in a predictable fashion, you can view the inflation schedule here. Once they are all issued Bitcoin will be truly deflationary.
  • Open source - Bitcoin code is fully auditable. You can read the source code yourself here.
  • Accountable - The public ledger is transparent, all transactions are seen by everyone.
  • Decentralized - Bitcoin is globally distributed across thousands of nodes with no single point of failure and as such can't be shut down similar to how Bittorrent works.
  • Censorship resistant - No one can prevent you from interacting with the bitcoin network and no one can censor, alter or block transactions that they disagree with, see Operation Chokepoint.
  • Push system - There are no chargebacks in bitcoin because only the person who owns the address where the bitcoins reside has the authority to move them.
  • Low fee - Transactions fees can vary between a few cents and a few dollars depending on network demand and how much priority you wish to assign to the transaction. Most wallets calculate the fee automatically but you can view current fees here.
  • Borderless - No country can stop it from going in/out, even in areas currently unserved by traditional banking as the ledger is globally distributed.
  • Trustless - Bitcoin solved the Byzantine's Generals Problem which means nobody needs to trust anybody for it to work.
  • Pseudonymous - No need to expose personal information when purchasing with cash or transacting.
  • Secure - Encrypted cryptographically and can’t be brute forced or confiscated with proper key management such as hardware wallets.
  • Programmable - Individual units of bitcoin can be programmed to transfer based on certain criteria being met
  • Nearly instant - From a few seconds to a few minutes depending on need for confirmations. After a few confirmations transactions are irreversible.
  • Peer-to-peer - No intermediaries with a cut, no need for trusted third parties.
  • Portable - Bitcoins are digital so they are easier to move than cash or gold. They can even be transported by simply remembering a string of words for wallet recovery.
  • Scalable - Each bitcoin is divisible down to 8 decimals allowing it to grow in value while still accommodating micro-transactions.
  • Designed Money - Bitcoin was created to fit all the fundamental properties of money better than gold or fiat
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here. Scaling resources here, and of course the whitepaper that started it all.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com and Howtobuybitcoin.io are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also, check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Bank Transfer Credit / Debit card Cash
Coinbase Coinbase LocalBitcoins
Gemini Bitstamp LibertyX
GDAX Bitit Mycelium LocalTrader
Bitstamp Cex.io BitQuick
Kraken CoinMama WallofCoins
Xapo BitcoinOTC
Cex.io
itBit
Bitit
Bitsquare
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Cashila or Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
  • If you prefer to "Be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, there are many software wallet options here. If you want easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices, then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor or Ledger is recommended. A more advanced option is to secure them yourself using paper wallets generated offline. Some popular mobile and desktop options are listed below and most are cross platform.
Android iOs Desktop
Mycelium BreadWallet Electrum
CoPay AirBitz Armory
  • If you prefer to let third party "Bitcoin banks" manage your coins, try Coinbase or Xapo but be aware you may not be in control of your private keys in which case you would have to ask permission to access your funds and be exposed to third party risk.
Another interesting use case for physical storage/transfer is the Opendime. Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend Bitcoin by physically passing it along so it's anonymous and tangible like cash.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.
Google Auth Authy

Can I mine bitcoin?

Mining bitcoins can be a fun learning experience, but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The crew at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin ?BTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (?L) or micrometre (?m)
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:
  • 0.02 BTC
  • 20 mBTC
  • 20,000 bits
For more information check out the Bitcoin units wiki.
