Means of global payment

Bitcoin has become a globally accepted means of payment. Some governments are opposing it, but this is not reducing the popularity or the acceptability of bitcoin in any way. The Indian government is among those government authorities that have spoken strongly against bitcoin, but their unwelcoming stance does not seem to have affected bitcoin in any way. Rather, the cryptocurrency is getting stronger by the day. As stated earlier, there are indications that bitcoin will go as high as $28,000 by 2020, probably higher.

The place of bitcoin wallet

The bitcoin wallet is an online purse in which you can store the bitcoin you have bought and also send bitcoin to other recipients. The wallet does more than to act as a purse; it also gives you information about bitcoin. For example, you can learn about the latest rate of bitcoin in comparison with the major currencies across the globe through the bitcoin wallet. The wallet can equally give you bitcoin price in your local currency and this will help you to know what the currency is worth without having to use an online converter.  Some bitcoin wallets can predict the future price of bitcoin.

Sending and receiving bitcoin

You can send biotic to another recipient by forwarding the bitcoin to the bitcoin address of the recipient. The bitcoin wallet address serves the same purpose that a bank account number serves.  You can also receive bitcoin form someone else by forwarding your wallet address to that recipient and the bitcoin will reflect in your bitcoin account after it has been sent by the other person.
