Can You Trade Bitcoin Instantly?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.

Bitcoin is unique in that there are a finite number of them: 21 million.

Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services.

As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment.

NOTE: WARNING: Trading Bitcoin can be extremely risky and volatile. It is important to exercise caution and ensure you understand the risks before trading Bitcoin. Be aware that you may lose money if the price of Bitcoin changes suddenly, so it is important to research the market and learn about trading strategies before attempting to trade Bitcoin. Additionally, be aware that trading Bitcoin instantly may not always be possible, as certain exchanges require KYC (Know Your Customer) regulations which can take several days or weeks to complete.

Bitcoin can be bought on exchanges, or directly from other people via marketplaces. You can pay for them in a variety of ways, including credit cards, bank transfers, PayPal, and cash.

The first bitcoin transaction took place on January 12, 2009, between Satoshi Nakamoto and Hal Finney, when Nakamoto sent 10 bitcoins to Finney. Since the launch of bitcoin, over 4 million bitcoins have been mined.

As of July 2016, the reward for mining one block of bitcoins was 12.5 bitcoins. As of November 2020 it was halved to 6.

25 bitcoins per block mined. This halving process will continue every four years until the final total number of 21 million bitcoins has been reached.
