Type in the right amount of bitcoins into the payment box and click ‘send’. Just make sure that you always type in the exact amount as displayed in the payment window.

      There are a lot of crept wallet some are centralized meaning you give custody of your bitcoin as if you were putting money in a bank. others are decentralized as you actually own the bitcoin. Just be mindful that the 2nd option that is more advantageous requires more discipline. You can start here https://bit.ly/2MGJSFG

    Thanks to Instant recovery’s team. It is not advisable to just embrace every investment opportunity because of scams, I have been a victim and lost up to $65,000. All my life, I have always been looking for ways to invest money, so as to retire early. Unfortunately, I got scammed in forex and binary options. I haven’t felt so much empty in my life, all effort to recover my funds was in vain.
    After few weeks, I stumbled on an International Recovery Firm [Bitcoinitspecialist ( a t ) gmail ‘dot’ com) based in Washington. This firm saved me, they kept me calm and they were professional through out the whole process of the recover. Surprisingly, I recouped 100% of my money back

    In my BTc wallet I can’t find an option to ‘purchase’. Can I just use the deposit function and put in the vendor code, or will it be withdrawal?

    Can the victims of scam get their money back? Yes, if you have fallen victim to scam from an unregulated investment platform or any scam at ll then are eligible to recover what was stolen from you and this can only happen if this is reported to the right people. With the right approach and with evidence, you will get what you lost back. Those behind these unregulated platforms will likely want to sell the idea that what happened to your investment was an unfortunate occurrence when in reality what happened was theft via elaborate means. If you are a victim or you know any one who is a victim of these occurrences, you should know there are people who can help you. Simply search (r e c o v e r y t e m p l e . t e c h) on google just the way it is in that bracket. It is never too late if you have the right information, your sanity can be restored.

    So, it seems that ultimately you are paying with an asset that is valued in US dollars. With a single Bitcoin valued at roughly $29,000, the average person isn’t going out and buying a ton of them. They have to purchase fractional shares. And then when they purchase something they are paying (in fractional shares) for a good or services that is priced in US dollars. To me it is just like paying for something with shares of stock. It isn’t like I can carry bitcoins around in my pocket. It certainly doesn’t have the ease of use of cash and it requires a third party to conduct a simple transaction.

    I have been trying to gather information about cryptos but find that all of the info seems to be vague and generalized so I might be missing something, but I don’t see this as a currency but more like any other exchange traded asset like stocks, gold, silver, etc.
