What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the world’s first decentralised digital currency with no central bank, authority or administrator that controls or approves transactions. Bitcoin is securely stored and exchanged through a digital ledger that is otherwise known as a Blockchain.

The genesis of Bitcoin dates back to October 31, 2008, when an individual or group of individuals acting under the pseudonym “Satoshi Nakamoto” published the Bitcoin whitepaper. Bitcoins are divisible into smaller units called ‘Satoshis’, similar to the way a dollar is divisible into cents. However, each Satoshi is worth 0.00000001 Bitcoin.

If you are new to crypto and thinking about buying Bitcoin, make sure you consider the following:

  • You can use PayID and NPP to transfer funds immediately. Banks take a day or two. Australian bank transfers over $100 AUD are free. SWIFT transactions over $5,000 AUD are free internationally.
  • We can manage all your crypto in one account if you want. If you prefer, you can manage all of the security yourself. Cryptocurrency gives YOU control.
  • Whilst Bitcoin is popular, and has increased in value over the last few years, it can still go up and down in value on a daily basis.
  • Like any investment, never put in more than you can afford to lose. Do your own research and speak to your financial advisor.
