WHAT IS BITCOIN

Bitcoin is a consensus network that enables a new payment system and a completely digital money. It is the first decentralized peer-to-peer payment network that is powered by its users with no central authority or middlemen. From a user perspective, Bitcoin is perhaps best described as ‘cash for the Internet’, but Bitcoin can also be seen as the most prominent triple entry bookkeeping system in existence. Bitcoin is often referred to as digital cash, cryptocurrency, an international payment network, the internet of money etc – but whatever you call it, Bitcoin is a revolution that is changing the way everyone sees and uses money. The beauty of Bitcoin is that it requires no central servers or third-party clearing houses to settle transactions – all payments are peer-to-peer (P2P) and are settled in about 10 minutes – unlike credit card payments, which can take weeks or months before they’re finally settled.


WHY SHOPNOW.NG?
