How to use Bitcoin wallet and buy & sell bitcoins?

 


 

Bitcoin advantages

Bitcoin is an international electronic currency. This is a new form of money created on the basis of the program code.

Bitcoin is not owned by any state, companies or individuals.

Due to this, Bitcoin has become the world's first decentralized means of payment. Money transfers are made on the peer-to-peer principle — without intermediaries between the sender and the recipient.

Bitcoin advantages:

1. High safety level

No one can block a Bitcoin wallet. Bitcoin does not depend on central banks, local and international laws, religion and other things.

Banks and the government do not control your bitcoins — they are only available to you. The wallet is created anonymously. Cryptocurrency cannot be faked, and payments cannot be cancelled.

2. Cheap transactions anywhere in the world

Transfer fees do not depend on the amount or location. They make up less than US$1 (regardless of the amount). You can transfer money to anyone from anywhere in the world.

3. Convenience

Unlike bank transactions, bitcoin transactions may be carried out on a 24/7 basis. You can decide independently when to transfer money.

4. Instant transfers

Bank transfers take 3–5 working days on average. The speed of transfers via Bitcoin is a few seconds, or, when you are dealing with large amounts of money, — 10–60 minutes.

5. Protection against inflation

National currencies depreciate annually by 1–20 % (sometimes more). Bitcoin is backed by a limited number of units (21 million) and protected against inflation.

Cryptocurrency is becoming more and more popular, since people do not spend money on fees and instantly exchange money. In the future, the world national currencies will be merged in a single digital Bitcoin currency! MMM and Bitcoin have a similar vision: they strive to overthrow social inequality, free people from the banks’ oppression and make the world a more just place.

Enter the password (created in step 2) and press “Log In”

You will be offered to choose the option of 2-Step verification for the better protection of your account. As per recommendation of bitgo.com website it should be Google Authenticator (GA).

First install GA to your smartphone. How to install GA and attach it to MMM PO see here.

Use your camera or a device with GA App to connect GA to the your bitgo.com account by scanning the QR Code. Or manually insert the code indicated below (item 1 in the screenshot) in GA App. IMPORTANT!

For enhanced security, you will be required to create a secondary password for the wallet to complete payment transactions along with your GA code. Select the option More Secure, invent a new password and re-enter it.

A popup will appear requesting to save file. Press “OK”.

 


 

 

A pdf file will download to your computer. Find and open it. This file will contain different codes with instruction to them. The first code we need — is for activation.

You will see the wallet’s balance and address for the receipt of funds. As well as buttons for moving to various configuration menu.

This is the address you will need to add your Bitcoin account in MMM PO under the “Accounts” tab. (Section 6 of the FAQ)

а) Click on the wallet on the main page and press “Receive”

 


 

 

b) Now you can view all earlier generated addresses with the received amounts. Also you can generate a new receive address or use generated QR code. It should be noted, that all addresses generated earlier are functioning and you can receive Bitcoins on any of them. There’s no need to generate a new address for each transaction.

 


 

 

c) All transactions for that wallet will be displayed on the “Transactions” page. When you click on the individual transaction you will be able to see amounts and addresses associated with the transaction.
