Bitcoin is the *currency of the Internet*. A distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without the need for any central authority whatsoever.
Like the FAQ about how to choose a wallet, it seems the sidebar is now converted to a Bitcoin.com advertising site.
Looking for the Gemini exchange in the old.reddit sidebar (sidebar menu not showing in the new reddit), Gemini is not listed so I click on "more exchanges" and get this: https://www.bitcoin.com/buy-bitcoin I love Bitcoin.com, but, BTC should not be controlled by their advertising arm.
The pinned FAQ directs new people to Bitcoin.com wallets
I like Bitcoin.com and want them to be successful, however, I think letting them take over the content of this particular FAQ has turned it into an advertisement with no real advice for new users looking for advice on how to choose a wallet.
How do I store my Bitcoin securely? After the initial step of buying your first Bitcoin, you will need a Bitcoin wallet to secure your Bitcoin. Knowing which Bitcoin wallet to choose is the second most important step in becoming a Bitcoin user. Since you are investing funds into Bitcoin, choosing the right Bitcoin wallet for you is a critical step that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Use this guide to help you choose the right wallet for you. Check the sidebar under Bitcoin wallets to get started and find a wallet that you can store your Bitcoin in.
I may have missed a link within the linked page? I did look as I was looking for the latest SLP wallet from Electron Cash. I came here remembering the good 'ol days when wallet links were in the BTC sidebar.
[FAQ] How do I send the Bitcoin Cash I have in my Mycelium Wallet?
Warning: This HowTo will not work for the B2X hardfork that is to come in November! Mycelium currently only supports Bitcoin. As Bitcoin Cash (BCH) provides replay protection, there is no way to move your BCH with Mycelium directly. The only way to move your BCH is to use a BCH software importing your BCH private keys there. If you trust the BCH software 100%, skip steps marked with (*).
Find a BCH wallet that you trust and that supports BIP39 (the 12 words backups) and BIP44 (the account structure used by Mycelium).
(*) Make sure you have all your accounts backed up and your backup handy.
(*) Wipe Mycelium's data. (address book and some meta information on transactions like invoices and labels will get lost)
(*) Create a new wallet upon the next start of Mycelium.
(*) Create a new 12 words backup and verify it.
(*) Use cold wallet spending to send all funds from your old backup to your new wallet. For your privacy, create new HD accounts after each old account you emptied out and send the next account's funds there.
I read the FAQ but I still dont feel safe with all the wallet options? Many 404's on Bitcoin.org
So sorry for the noob question guys but I hope it helps other people as well. Today I bought my first Bitcoins on coinbase, just about 10 € and they took 1€ fee. (I plan to buy more every day I just dont want to hodl) Ok now I obviously can send them to some wallets and most people recommend that. Now I wanted to download a wallet from bitcoin.org, however most of them aren't available for download (404 page). Then there are so many news about wallets which got hacked and everything. I know that there are certain types of wallets, like paper wallets, desktop wallets and mobile wallets. So my question is know:
Are there some which I shouldn't use no matter what?
Then lets say I want to use a paper wallet: What Code from Coinbase do I write down? And lets say Coinbase gets hacked and no one has access to it anymore. Does the code I have written down on my paper really means, that I still have all my Bitcoins?
One Wallet that was working on bitcoin.org was Bitcoin Core but It is installing all Bitcoin Transactions from the Blockchain I think, which means it will take some times. I will try to send my Bitcoins from Coinbase to Bitcoin Org once it is done, but can I use a mobile wallet as well. So what I mean is, can I store my Bitcoins in two different Wallets or do I need to choose one?
Lastly just a recomendation, which app do you guys use for storing Bitcoins.
So thanks anyone for helping me with this, I know it is hard to get the same questions every day but I really tried and dont get it at the moment. I dont know maybe I am dumb or hodled. Cheers
Hi! First time posting so my apologies if I screw something up. I started uni last year and began to look at cryptocurrency and bitcoin at the same time. So I've been following btc for almost a year now but never really invested anything. I am using binance and messed a bit with its future system to see how trading in future works (lost a couple 20€). I really want to invest more into bitcoin, get into it (in a reasonable way) and hold for the long term. Though I keep telling myself that I missed the wave when it was at 8k or that I don't have the knowledge to invest yet. Anyway, I am looking for opinions and advice, like is binance a good platform or do you recommend something else ? Using binance as a wallet ? Should I just go for it ? Should I get into trading or just holding ? Idk what else to say, please try to convince me! I hope this post and the comment section will help some newcomers like me get into it. thanks for reading !
🔥Not your keys, not your coins : Why you should not use Paypal for Bitcoin
Today, PayPal announced that they will be launching a cryptocurrency digital wallet for buying, selling and storing Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin. This confirms rumors which circulated earlier this year, and it is seen as a significant milestone by many in the community. A milestone it may be, but it will impact millions of daily users who have, until now, never considered getting into cryptocurrency. For them, PayPal will be the leading authority in a space that it has long sought to discredit. Over 221 Billion dollars were transacted in Q2 of 2020 using Paypal. That represents a rise of 10% in volume in just six months. PayPal is growing and dominating online payments as well as other services such as credit and insurance. It has a long-established reputation of occasionally freezing user funds and censoring payments that conflict with its outlook but the payments giant continues to hold relevance where Bitcoin should have long overtaken it. Perhaps this news marks the beginning of a transition? Is PayPal’s announcement good news for Bitcoin? Until very recently, PayPal was anti-crypto. Writing in 2018, ex-CEO Bill Harris called Bitcoin “the greatest scam ever”, so what’s changed? This sudden turnaround is encouraging, especially as private companies like Microstrategy and Square make grandiose announcements about their own crypto diversification. Should the community embrace them with open arms? After all, this is the start of mass adoption we’ve all been waiting for, right? When a household brand like PayPal starts selling Bitcoin, it’s probably not because they want to spur healthy adoption. In the press release announcing their new cryptocurrency service, PayPal sends out mixed messages. On one hand, the service will be entirely custodial, meaning users will not have the key to their own coins, while on the other they intend to “provide account holders with educational content to help them understand the cryptocurrency ecosystem”. The idea that anyone informed about bitcoin would agree to not holding their private keys might indicate that this educational content will overlook the fundamental rule of “Not your keys; not your coins”. If millions of newcomers are onboarded to Bitcoin by PayPal, there could be a very serious information gap that jeopardizes their experience and undermines key principles of cryptocurrency. This statement from their FAQ is, in practical terms, false: “You own the Cryptocurrency you buy on PayPal but will not be provided with a private key.” No-one should consider money held entirely by a third party as owned by them. Time after time, exchanges have lost user funds, often leaving them with no recourse. A benefit for some will be a promise of greater regulation, where funds can be insured and new users may feel more comfortable than dealing with cryptocurrency exchanges directly, but they will be restricted from actually utilizing their coins. The only reasons to own Bitcoin which cannot be used, would be to invest for the long term, which is incredibly reckless to do when your funds are held by a third party, or speculate on its price, which again, would be introducing the masses to financial mechanisms they do not understand. Is PayPal positioned to be a cryptocurrency leader? As it steps into the forefront, PayPal will be closely watched by companies, institutions, and consumers. While they can boast of “digital payments expertise”, they have historically taken an aggressive stance against users who bought cryptocurrency on exchanges, citing their acceptable use policy, forbidding transactions which “involve currency exchanges or check cashing businesses”. The fact that this clause remains in their policy suggests that they intend to limit users to use only their platform for cryptocurrency, stifling competition and preventing users from ever withdrawing their cryptocurrency to the safety of a wallet they control the keys to. That said, there is something to be said for PayPal’s statement that they will “enable cryptocurrency as a funding source for digital commerce at its 26 million merchants”. Currently, the options for cryptocurrency funding are in their infancy, and Bitcoin loans could see future growth. There is only one thing about PayPal’s announcement that long-term hodlers will be celebrating today: the pump in price. Long-term, if PayPal proceeds without consulting the community and letting their users control their own keys, it offers no value to the space. The greatest risk is that the clout they carry in traditional electronic payments will be interpreted as expertise in crypto. This would threaten the expert advice so carefully crafted by our community, which could be drowned out by the misinformed masses that PayPal brings to the space. For now, no-one can tell how it will turn out, but there are big concerns to address before informed users will turn to PayPal. Welcome PayPal’s initiative with open arms, but by no means look to them for leadership. At best, this announcement indicates that they may fear sinking into irrelevance. *Do not use PayPal for Bitcoin; there are many other places to buy crypto which will let you keep ownership of your coins. * PayPal is conceding to Bitcoin, and the many other aspirational, educational projects within the community should be highlighted to prevent newcomers from falling into a trap of trusting one of Bitcoin’s greatest long-term adversaries.

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments. It all started with the release of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper however that will probably go over the head of most readers so we recommend the following videos for a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Limited Supply - There will only ever be 21,000,000 bitcoins created and they are issued in a predictable fashion, you can view the inflation schedule here. Once they are all issued Bitcoin will be truly deflationary. The halving countdown can be found here.
Open source - Bitcoin code is fully auditable. You can read the source code yourself here.
Accountable - The public ledger is transparent, all transactions are seen by everyone.
Decentralized - Bitcoin is globally distributed across thousands of nodes with no single point of failure and as such can't be shut down similar to how Bittorrent works. You can even run a node on a Raspberry Pi.
Censorship resistant - No one can prevent you from interacting with the bitcoin network and no one can censor, alter or block transactions that they disagree with, see Operation Chokepoint.
Push system - There are no chargebacks in bitcoin because only the person who owns the address where the bitcoins reside has the authority to move them.
Low fee scaling - On chain transaction fees depend on network demand and how much priority you wish to assign to the transaction. Most wallets calculate on chain fees automatically but you can view current fees here and mempool activity here. On chain fees may rise occasionally due to network demand, however instant micropayments that do not require confirmations are happening via the Lightning Network, a second layer scaling solution currently rolling out on the Bitcoin mainnet.
Borderless - No country can stop it from going in/out, even in areas currently unserved by traditional banking as the ledger is globally distributed.
Portable - Bitcoins are digital so they are easier to move than cash or gold. They can even be transported by simply memorizing a string of words for wallet recovery (while cool this method is generally not recommended due to potential for insecure key generation by inexperienced users. Hardware wallets are the preferred method for new users due to ease of use and additional security).
Bitcoin.org and BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (even just a few dollars worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Bitwage. Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".
Securing your bitcoins
With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
If you prefer to "Be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, then you will need to create your own wallet and keep it secure. If you want easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices, then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor, Ledger or ColdCard is recommended. Alternatively there are many software wallet options to choose from here depending on your use case.
If you prefer to let third party "Bitcoin banks" manage your coins, try Gemini but be aware you may not be in control of your private keys in which case you would have to ask permission to access your funds and be exposed to third party risk.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email! 2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.
As mentioned above, Bitcoin is decentralized, which by definition means there is no official website or Twitter handle or spokesperson or CEO. However, all money attracts thieves. This combination unfortunately results in scammers running official sounding names or pretending to be an authority on YouTube or social media. Many scammers throughout the years have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Websites like bitcoin(dot)com and the btc subreddit are active scams. Almost all altcoins (shitcoins) are marketed heavily with big promises but are really just designed to separate you from your bitcoin. So be careful: any resource, including all linked in this document, may in the future turn evil. Don't trust, verify. Also as they say in our community "Not your keys, not your coins".
Where can I spend bitcoins?
Check out spendabit or bitcoin directory for millions of merchant options. Also you can spend bitcoin anywhere visa is accepted with bitcoin debit cards such as the CashApp card. Some other useful site are listed below.
Mining bitcoins can be a fun learning experience, but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The crew at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out. If you want to contribute to the bitcoin network by hosting the blockchain and propagating transactions you can run a full node using this setup guide. If you would prefer to keep it simple there are several good options. You can view the global node distribution here.
Just like any other form of money, you can also earn bitcoins by being paid to do a job.
You can also earn bitcoins by participating as a market maker on JoinMarket by allowing users to perform CoinJoin transactions with your bitcoins for a small fee (requires you to already have some bitcoins.
The following is a short list of ongoing projects that might be worth taking a look at if you are interested in current development in the bitcoin space.
One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
one bitcoin is equal to 100 million satoshis
1,000 per bitcoin
used as default unit in recent Electrum wallet releases
1,000,000 per bitcoin
colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin (μBTC)
100,000,000 per bitcoin
smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $10000 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

Welcome to the Bitcoin community and the new decentralized economy!
I see a lot of people are having a hard time understanding bit coin. Naturally, bit coin the the most tracked and easy to tracked system of money. It was not created to be secretive. It was created to make a system of money that would stand alone from government and not be susceptible to normal problems with money. It records every transaction, tied to an account, tied to you. Any time you want to get money in, or get money out, aka turn bit coin into currency, you tell the world who you are. And all your transactions are recorded. It’s the type of system a government could easily abuse.
Hey BTC. I started stacking sats a wee while ago, read up a bit and got myself a cold storage wallet on bitaddress, so I could start calling myself a real HODLer. Not entirely sure why but it has taken until now for me to realise, I don't know the best way to transfer funds out of my cold storage to another wallet, e.g to transfer to a friend's wallet. I looked on the FAQs here to find out, and saw a few things I'd like clarification on:
Under "why does my bitcoin address keep changing", it mentions it may be bad practice to use the same wallet for more than one transaction and that a wallet's address may change after each transaction. Why?
What's the best way for me to transfer money from my cold storage?
Nendly, the Notion-Friendly Forum is a social media site that offers a novel approach to Internet communities.
Social media today is a poor avenue for Internet conversations. Everyone can have their say, but only in their particular echochamber. While I've written more about it in an essay, go to cc and you'll see the main crux. The things you can talk about here won't fly so well there. Now why is that? It's because on Reddit, we have a downvote button. And since what you see is based on vote scores, it's essentially a censorship button. If you don't hold a 51% opinion, those in the majority will vote you down, and you'll leave to join another where the electorate is more favorable. And so we get a million insulated communities, each so sure that the others are wrong and needlessly hostile. But it doesn't have to be this way! Nendly uses a state-of-the-art voting algorithm that enables discussions wherein many competing ideas are possible. Instead of the upvote and downvote buttons being directly tied to what users see, Nendly performs viewpoint analysis to find the best content among a range of diverse beliefs. And since it uses game-theory, there's no possibility for an cc style take-over. You can read more about it here, but basically I've solved the cc problem, as seen in Nendly's much friendlier n/crypto community. Now there's a lot more to the site, including huge usability improvements and features Reddit doesn't have, but I'll have to leave it for a video I'll put out tomorrow. Ask me any questions and I'll address them then. (I need to sleep, it's been a wild day).
Ok but why is this a big deal for nano? The benefits are many.
Nano is exclusively integrated site-wide. Instead of Reddit "awards", we have nano-based gifts that mostly go to the end user. That's right, you can get paid to use social media. Forget Reddit's ETH integration, we've beet 'em to it, guys!
When someone awards your post or comment with nano, you get a helpful message from the system user, who gives you information about nano, the foundation, wallets, etc. so you can adopt it yourself.
The user base will be primarily non-crypto people, since I've intentionally built the site for a general-purpose audience. And since nano is the only crypto fully-integrated, we'll be actively getting people to join Nano. They won't just see it on a list with 50 other coins and bitcoin at the top. We are talking REAL ADOPTION.
With scale comes power. Imagine if we had complete control over the code for this subreddit. If someone had an idea requiring scale, we could actually fulfill it. We wouldn't have the "okay but where will you get your users" problem. If someone had an idea like ads that pay you nano to view them, we'd be able to break down that barrier. Well here's the thing, we've got Nendly, and with it we can solve the scale problem once and for all. Not just with n/crypto, but with the entire site if we like. As Nendly grows, so too does our launchpad.
There's more too for nano I'll put in the video. Again, ask me questions and I'll answer them when I'm not so tired :)
There's a lot of features that I'll be releasing over the coming days and weeks that are close to being done. For now, so I could meet the August deadline I set for myself, it's a Desktop-only experience with mobile coming very soon (we've also got a public API that's mostly done, PM me if you want to build an App or something). So hey, try my site out! You'll find updates coming out very fast since most of the cool stuff is ~90% done. I plan on a major update happening once a week, so it'll be a quick-moving experience if you join our community. Please bare with me since it's just now public. There's bound to be funny bugs we'll run into, and I already know some email providers are dropping my mail since they've never heard of nendly.com. And who knows, maybe the servers will explode. Also, I want to say thanks for all the support these past 2 months. I really wanted to give you something you could use before August ended, and thankfully we made it just hours before September! Edit ok, here’s the video!
DigiByte Mining Pool - Official Launch - 50,000 DGB Giveaway!
https://preview.redd.it/1hlax7cksas51.png?width=2000&format=png&auto=webp&s=6893e01650cfdd3a778df5705a0382ad8b382488 I have been working hard on the front-end of my pool for the past couple of months. Anyone who saw v1.0 will be shocked to see the progress it's made. It now has a fantastic front-end with detailed charts, graphs, and user stats, all in a sleek Bootstrap 4.0 layout. Miners....come join us at https://Luckyblocks.ninja I wanted to offer support for all Algo's, and initially, I did. But after talking with DigiByte developers, and taking their advice this was changed to support only Scrypt and SHA256D. Until ProgPOW is implemented GPU mining is pointless, so this ultimately is why I chose Scrypt and SHA256D. Another feature of the pool is BTC and LTC Solo Mining for any of you guys out there that have some gear that's not profitable to mine with anymore and just want to play the blockchain lottery. Wouldn't it be nice to wake up with 6.25 Bitcoin in your wallet one morning? General Pool Features are:

If you're quite technically-minded, the Zano whitepaper gives a thorough overview of Zano's design and its main features. So, what is Zano? In brief, Zano is a project started by the original developers of CryptoNote. Coins with market caps totalling well over a billion dollars (Monero, Haven, Loki and countless others) run upon the codebase they created. Zano is a continuation of their efforts to create the "perfect money", and brings a wealth of enhancements to their original CryptoNote code. Development happens at a lightning pace, as the Github activity shows, but Zano is still very much a work-in-progress. Let's cut right to it: Here's why you should pay attention to Zano over the next 12-18 months. Quoting from a recent update:
Anton Sokolov has recently joined the Zano team. ... For the last months Anton has been working on theoretical work dedicated to log-size ring signatures. These signatures theoretically allows for a logarithmic relationship between the number of decoys and the size/performance of transactions. This means that we can set mixins at a level from up to 1000, keeping the reasonable size and processing speed of transactions. This will take Zano’s privacy to a whole new level, and we believe this technology will turn out to be groundbreaking!
If successful, this scheme will make Zano the most private, powerful and performant CryptoNote implementation on the planet. Bar none. A quantum leap in privacy with a minimal increase in resource usage. And if there's one team capable of pulling it off, it's this one.
What else makes Zano special?
You mean aside from having "the Godfather of CryptoNote" as the project lead? ;) Actually, the calibre of the developers/researchers at Zano probably is the project's single greatest strength. Drawing on years of experience, they've made careful design choices, optimizing performance with an asynchronous core architecture, and flexibility and extensibility with a modular code structure. This means that the developers are able to build and iterate fast, refining features and adding new ones at a rate that makes bigger and better-funded teams look sluggish at best. Zano also has some unique features that set it apart from similar projects: Privacy Firstly, if you're familiar with CryptoNote you won't be surprised that Zano transactions are private. The perfect money is fungible, and therefore must be untraceable. Bitcoin, for the most part, does little to hide your transaction data from unscrupulous observers. With Zano, privacy is the default. The untraceability and unlinkability of Zano transactions come from its use of ring signatures and stealth addresses. What this means is that no outside observer is able to tell if two transactions were sent to the same address, and for each transaction there is a set of possible senders that make it impossible to determine who the real sender is. Hybrid PoW-PoS consensus mechanism Zano achieves an optimal level of security by utilizing both Proof of Work and Proof of Stake for consensus. By combining the two systems, it mitigates their individual vulnerabilities (see 51% attack and "nothing at stake" problem). For an attack on Zano to have even a remote chance of success the attacker would have to obtain not only a majority of hashing power, but also a majority of the coins involved in staking. The system and its design considerations are discussed at length in the whitepaper. Aliases Here's a stealth address: ZxDdULdxC7NRFYhCGdxkcTZoEGQoqvbZqcDHj5a7Gad8Y8wZKAGZZmVCUf9AvSPNMK68L8r8JfAfxP4z1GcFQVCS2Jb9wVzoe. I have a hard enough time remembering my phone number. Fortunately, Zano has an alias system that lets you register an address to a human-readable name. (@orsonj if you want to anonymously buy me a coffee) Multisig Multisignature (multisig) refers to requiring multiple keys to authorize a Zano transaction. It has a number of applications, such as dividing up responsibility for a single Zano wallet among multiple parties, or creating backups where loss of a single seed doesn't lead to loss of the wallet. Multisig and escrow are key components of the planned Decentralized Marketplace (see below), so consideration was given to each of them from the design stages. Thus Zano's multisig, rather than being tagged on at the wallet-level as an afterthought, is part of its its core architecture being incorporated at the protocol level. This base-layer integration means months won't be spent in the future on complicated refactoring efforts in order to integrate multisig into a codebase that wasn't designed for it. Plus, it makes it far easier for third-party developers to include multisig (implemented correctly) in any Zano wallets and applications they create in the future. (Double Deposit MAD) Escrow With Zano's escrow service you can create fully customizable p2p contracts that are designed to, once signed by participants, enforce adherence to their conditions in such a way that no trusted third-party escrow agent is required. https://preview.redd.it/jp4oghyhv9q51.png?width=1762&format=png&auto=webp&s=12a1e76f76f902ed328886283050e416db3838a5 The Particl project, aside from a couple of minor differences, uses an escrow scheme that works the same way, so I've borrowed the term they coined ("Double Deposit MAD Escrow") as I think it describes the scheme perfectly. The system requires participants to make additional deposits, which they will forfeit if there is any attempt to act in a way that breaches the terms of the contract. Full details can be found in the Escrow section of the whitepaper. The usefulness of multisig and the escrow system may not seem obvious at first, but as mentioned before they'll form the backbone of Zano's Decentralized Marketplace service (described in the next section).
What does the future hold for Zano?
The planned upgrade to Zano's privacy, mentioned at the start, is obviously one of the most exciting things the team is working on, but it's not the only thing. Zano Roadmap Decentralized Marketplace From the beginning, the Zano team's goal has been to create the perfect money. And money can't just be some vehicle for speculative investment, money must be used. To that end, the team have created a set of tools to make it as simple as possible for Zano to be integrated into eCommerce platforms. Zano's API’s and plugins are easy to use, allowing even those with very little coding experience to use them in their E-commerce-related ventures. The culmination of this effort will be a full Decentralized Anonymous Marketplace built on top of the Zano blockchain. Rather than being accessed via the wallet, it will act more as a service - Marketplace as a Service (MAAS) - for anyone who wishes to use it. The inclusion of a simple "snippet" of code into a website is all that's needed to become part a global decentralized, trustless and private E-commerce network. Atomic Swaps Just as Zano's marketplace will allow you to transact without needing to trust your counterparty, atomic swaps will let you to easily convert between Zano and other cyryptocurrencies without having to trust a third-party service such as a centralized exchange. On top of that, it will also lead to the way to Zano's inclusion in the many decentralized exchange (DEX) services that have emerged in recent years.
Where can I buy Zano?
Zano's currently listed on the following exchanges: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/zano/markets/ It goes without saying, neither I nor the Zano team work for any of the exchanges or can vouch for their reliability. Use at your own risk and never leave coins on a centralized exchange for longer than necessary. Your keys, your coins! If you have any old graphics cards lying around(both AMD & NVIDIA), then Zano is also mineable through its unique ProgPowZ algorithm. Here's a guide on how to get started. Once you have some Zano, you can safely store it in one of the desktop or mobile wallets (available for all major platforms).
How can I support Zano?
Zano has no marketing department, which is why this post has been written by some guy and not the "Chief Growth Engineer @ Zano Enterprises". The hard part is already done: there's a team of world class developers and researchers gathered here. But, at least at the current prices, the team's funds are enough to cover the cost of development and little more. So the job of publicizing the project falls to the community. If you have any experience in community building/growth hacking at another cryptocurrency or open source project, or if you're a Zano holder who would like to ensure the project's long-term success by helping to spread the word, then send me a pm. We need to get organized. Researchers and developers are also very welcome. Working at the cutting edge of mathematics and cryptography means Zano provides challenging and rewarding work for anyone in those fields. Please contact the project's Community Manager u/Jed_T if you're interested in joining the team. Social Links: Twitter Discord Server Telegram Group Medium blog I'll do my best to keep this post accurate and up to date.
