You’ve finally decided to buy some cryptos! Because… everybody is buying and earning, right? Well, not exactly like that. Not the opposite, either. Then, what? What is the truth about cryptocurrencies? Have they value? How many can you buy? Can you use them just for investment? You need a comprehensive techy-course to learn how to handle them?

Let’s pause your trading for a second and wreck the most popular cryptocurrency myths. If you’re going to immerse yourself in this huge and interesting world, there’s some lies and doubts you need to solve first, in order to avoid really nasty surprises later. Ready? Set? Go!

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have “ghost-value”

There will be always someone out there telling you something like “cryptos are backed by nothing. They’re not physical, they don’t exist, they have no real value!” Well, you can ask them back: Have you ever thought about why the papers with numbers in your pocket have some value? No? They’re just papers, after all.

Let us tell you the answer: it’s because an entire country (and the world) agrees about their value. The bills, the coins, the transfers, 우리가 가치가 있기 때문에 믿다 it has value. And if we believe it has value, we can exchange it with others, to get some useful goods and services. Like, you know… food and housing.

If we can’t exchange the money for other products, then it’s totally useless. So, we need the magic of believing. Now: why we believe in those little papers? They’re apparently backed (and mint) by some (not-very- trustworthy) governments. And we arrive at last to the complaint 암호 화폐에 대해: they’re not backed (or mint) by any government or central institution. Not most of them, at the least.

But hey, that’s indeed a good thing. We still can use the magic of believing (in the form of supply and demand) without the drawbacks put by central authorities and intermediaries, like censorship, limits, high fees, account freezing, requirements, documents, wasted time, and everything related to traditional money. So, cryptocurrencies have value because they’re very useful and a lot of people have already discovered it. Isn’t that cool?   

You can’t buy less than one entire Bitcoin/Ethereum/Litecoin…

Let’s check quickly: one Bitcoin costs around 10.200 USD, one Ethereum costs around 353 USD, and one Litecoin costs around 48 USD today. You want to buy some of them, but you have like… 30 leftover bucks in your pocket. You have no hopes, right? Yes!

각각 30 USD를 구매하거나 해당 수량을 나누어 LTC, BTC, ETH를 구매할 수 있습니다. You don’t need to buy a complete “coin”, you just can buy what you have and what you need. Cryptocurrencies are divisible by several decimals. Bitcoin, for example, is divided into units as small as 0.00000001 BTC (around 0,000102 USD, if we use the current exchange rate). Ethereum has even more decimals: 18. And Litecoin has eight decimals, just like Bitcoin.

Depending on the cryptocurrency, the number of decimals can change, but it’s very common to be able to buy one dollar and even much less. So, it doesn’t matter you can’t buy a whole unit. You still can own (and send) valuable fractions of your favorites cryptos, facing very low fees per transaction.

암호 화폐는 불법입니다!

Calm down a bit, please. For starting: the legality and regulations regarding cryptocurrencies depend on the country or territory, but we can tell you from now they’re completely legal in most of the world. Few countries 명백히 금지했다 암호 화폐의 사용 및 교환. 다음은 (짧은) 목록입니다.

  • 알제리
  • 이집트
  • 모로코
  • 볼리비아
  • 네팔
  • 파키스탄

다른 쪽에서는 우리는 또한 암호 화폐가 합법적 인 국가가 있지만 은행 업무가 금지되거나 어떤 식 으로든 제한됩니다.. 이것들은:

  • 러시아 (허용, 그러나 상품이나 서비스의 대가로 사용해서는 안됩니다).
  • 베트남 (허용, 그러나 상품이나 서비스의 대가로 사용해서는 안됩니다).
  • 인도네시아 (허용되지만 상품 또는 서비스에 대한 대가로 사용되지 않음).
  • 캄보디아 (허용되지만 은행 사용 불가)
  • 캐나다 (허용되지만 일부 활동은 규제되고 일부 은행에서는이를 금지했습니다).
  • 콜롬비아 (허용되지만 은행 사용 불가)
  • 요르단 (허용되지만 은행 사용 불가)
  • 방글라데시 (허용되지만 은행 사용 불가)
  • China (allowed, but crypto-exchanges and ICOs are banned. The banks can’t use them either).
  • 대만 (허용되지만 은행 사용 불가)

If your country isn’t on these lists, congratulations! You’re totally free to use cryptocurrencies as you want (and your banks too). But we must warn you: every territory has its own regulations about it. The United States and the European Union, by example, use to ask for some taxes and/or Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements for certain activities. Thereby, before you use them, it’d be nice to check their legal status in your place.

Cryptocurrencies are very difficult to use (and you can’t buy many things with them)

Maybe you’re worried about the fact you’re not precisely a computer genius, right? Cryptos looks so techy and intimidating in that way. Maybe you’re going to lose your money or block something all by accident. Not to mention you’re prone to lose your phone. And they’re just used for trading, not for general retails. Then, is better not to use them! Well, that’s incorrect, my friend.

Cryptocurrencies may be difficult to build (as any other computer program), but they’re very easy to use, for everyone. 지갑 앱이나 친근한 교환 웹 페이지 (Alfacash처럼!). And don’t worry, everything is very intuitive. Have you ever use an app (any app)? A bank webpage? Then you’re all set! The appearance isn’t so different from them. You just need to choose a wallet or webpage and follow the instructions on it. Indeed, we’ve already prepared Bitcoin 구매 가이드 몇 가지 간단한 단계로.

Regarding losing your phone (and your cryptos with it), don’t worry either. Your cryptos aren’t in your phone or dispositive, but safe inside 블록 체인 (슈퍼 암호화 클라우드와 유사한 데이터베이스). 나중에 다른 통화로 거래 할뿐만 아니라 상품 및 서비스 구매에 사용할 수 있습니다. 코인 맵 전 세계에서 암호 화폐를받는 +19.643 개의 장소를 찾을 수 있습니다.

암호 화폐는 익명입니다 추적 할 수없는

Not every cryptocurrency is anonymous. Indeed, there are few anonymous currencies. Bitcoin isn’t anonymous at all: it’s only pseudonymous. This means you don’t need to give your real identity to open or use a wallet, but the addresses generated by your transactions can be easily seen and followed. 그만큼 Bitcoin blockchain is transparent and public: everybody can check on the Internet their addresses records. Even they can identify the IP 주소 (and, therefore, identify you) if they know how to.

With networks like Ethereum, Litecoin and XRP is the same. Dash it’s partially private, and Zcash and Monero offers to be fully anonymous. Of course, according to 연구 회사 Chainalysis, Zcash and Dash aren’t as anonymous as they want to be. To date, Monero seems to have the major digital resistance to being tracked. But there’s nothing sure in this life. The cash (fiat) money still has the title as the most anonymous payment method.

암호 화폐를 사면 쉽게 부자가 될 수 있습니다

The timing is bad in that phrase: you could’ve gotten rich easily just buying some cryptos… in 2009-2013. But by then nobody imagined that. It was a lucky strike for the “early birds”, who mainly were developers, geeks, gamers, and privacy activists. Really few investors in there. Some other people bought BTCs out of curiosity and they later lost the private key or storage disk with hundreds or thousands of them. Something to cry, but life goes on.

현재 날짜에 누군가가 암호 화폐를 소유하여 특별한 수익을 약속한다면 or “invest” in their marvelous project, they’re probably going to scam you. There’s an awful lot of scams using the name (and just the name) of cryptocurrencies, so, you have to be careful and do your own research (DYOR, as we say within the ecosystem). Getting rich isn’t easy. Easy money doesn’t exist, and if someone is trying to tell you otherwise to make you invest in some project, you need to be extra incredulous.

It’s too late to invest in cryptocurrency

The last point leads us to this: is it too late to invest in cryptos, then? The lucky strike is gone? Can’t I make any money currently? That depends on several factors. To sum it up: you can make some earnings, but you need to study a lot and take calculated risks.

The main use of cryptocurrencies should be payment methods (as any other money), but it’s possible (and popular) to build an investment portfolio with them. 암호 화폐 가격은 변동성이 높기 때문에 단기 및 장기 수익을 창출하는 것이 매력적일 수 있습니다.. 누구나 전통 증권 거래소에서 할 수 있듯이 거래를 연습 할 수 있습니다. 그러나 먼저, 당신은 경제에 대해 아주 잘 알아야하며 당신의 돈을 투자 할 (그리고 위험을 감수 할) 암호 화폐에 대해 더 많이 알아야합니다.

암호 화폐에 투자하는 또 다른 방법은 채굴 및 지분. You can become a validator of a blockchain network, and receive a reward for it. For this one, you’ll probably need some specialized machines and good software and hardware.

In conclusion: isn’t too late to invest in cryptocurrency! Bitcoin always tends to rise, and there are 아주 좋은 예측 about its price for the next years. You can be a validator as well, and earn some money. It may be not that easy or fast in any case, but yes, it’s possible. You know: “The best time to invest was yesterday, the second-best time is today”.
