Quote:Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network.
I've heard much about Bitcoins in the internet and even in some newspapers but as of today I have never really used it or took effort to get some Bitcoins to play around. In my opinion it's very time consuming to get into the topic (I'm not talking about mining ... just using them).
I'm currently trying to exchange a bit of real money to Bitcoins via Localbitcoins to pay my seedboxes and servers with. If the experiment goes well, I probably will continue using it. I'd like to be a bit less dependend on my prepaid credit card and paypal account (I feel being very monitored lately...) and I think Bitcoin could be the right thing here. So far I have no positive and no negative experience with it, but this will change soon.
Have you ever done something with Bitcoins? What is your experience with it? Are you using Bitcoins regularly? Do you have some important tips for Bitcoin newbies?
