Buy Bitcoin in Dubai – Quick Links:


Bitcoin (BTC) has been attracting a lot of attention of late, some good and some bad. Some countries and jurisdictions have gone so far as to prohibit bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, either completely or partially. You can quite legitimately buy Bitcoin in Dubai however; the government has shown itself to be pro-cryptocurrency by taking positive measures to regulate it.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin came into being in 2009. It’s a decentralized cryptocurrency which was created by a person or persons named Satoshi Nakamoto and whose actual identity is unknown. No one is sure whether this is an alias for an individual or a group of developers.

The fundamental difference between Bitcoin and traditional currencies such as the Dollar and the Euro is that when paying for goods and services the traditional way we use hard cash either in online format or in the physical form of paper notes or coins. There is a requirement for an intermediary such as a credit card company or bank to be part of the transaction.

With Bitcoin however there is no physical element to it, it is encrypted and therefore safe to use and there is no intermediary involved in overseeing the transaction. You can purchase whatever you want with Bitcoin provided the vendor accepts it, and the number of vendors who do so is increasing all the time. Additionally you can choose to remain anonymous if you so desire.

You can transfer Bitcoin in minutes (thus avoiding delays associated with banks) thanks to Blockchain Technology which is BTC’s engine room.

Despite being introduced back in 2009 Bitcoin only really caught the general public’s attention in 2017 due to its meteoric and widely publicised increase in value.

Why Buy Bitcoin?

Although there are thousands of different types of cryptocurrencies in existence Bitcoin is by far the most popular and the most well known. Cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin are known as Altcoins. Movements in the price of Altcoins pretty much mirror movements in the price of Bitcoin.

It is getting easier all the time to pay for goods and services with Bitcoin since more and more vendors are accepting it. At present that is not so much the case with Altcoins but it is likely that this will change over time. Cryptocurrency is still in its infancy as an asset class and means of exchange.

As well as a means of exchange Bitcoin is becoming increasingly popular as a means of investment. This is first and foremost because of an anticipated increase in price over time.

Many leading financial figures are predicting huge BTC price increases. Even so the forecasts are wide ranging. For example Kay Van-Petersen, analyst for Saxo Bank has predicted that the price of Bitcoin could reach $100,000 within 10 years whereas PayPal Director and Tech Entrepreneur Winces Casares has predicted a price of $1,000,000 within the same period. The reality is that nobody knows.

The Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde fired a warning shot over senior banking officials recently regarding complacency and not fully appreciating the potential threat that Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general could be to conventional banking and central banks.

Such is the importance and potential that the IMF attaches to cryptocurrency. Read full article.
