How to use Bitcoin

A new common question we get asked at CBN is How do I use Bitcoin? The answer is almost complicated because there are too many options for new users and it's hard to give advise on the best way to start using Bitcoin. Just a bit of warning you'll want to know the laws of how your government and banks handle Bitcoin as these laws and policies can change at any moment. You can get more info from the Wikipedia page of Bitcoin so it's still use at your own risk. 

You need a wallet!

To get started with Bitcoin, you need a wallet which is a place to store your digital currency. Your wallet is also digital so you can think of your wallet like a bank and it's somewhat interchangeable. There are many websites that offer wallet services where you can store your money. The only dowside of doing such a thing is adding some risk your wallet could get locked, compromised or the exchange holding your currency could disappear which is exactly what happened years ago with MT Gox. That said things today are a lot better than they were years ago. You can choose between cold storage (stored on a device that is NOT connected to the internet) versus an online wallet like When it comes to using any of these wallet sites, it's your responsibility to abide by the terms and conditions of that wallet. In other words, don't do anything you shouldn't be doing and nothing illegal so it is your responsiblity.
