Why Use Bitcoins? Edit

Low or Negligible Transfer Fees Edit

When paying a friend through typical online services, it can typically cost upwards of 2.5% + $0.50 in fees. This means, when you digitally pay your buddy $100, it will cost $3 more. Or, if you purchase something for $25,000, it will cost an extra $625.50. That is a lot of wasted money in fees. With Bitcoin, you can pay flat near-zero transaction fees that can be as low as a $0.01 depending on how fast you want the transaction to complete.

Speed and Global Reach Edit

You can pay someone in India or London just as easily as someone in Argentina or Hong Kong. Bitcoin is completely global and works over the internet.

Security and Privacy Edit

Payment "push" rather than "pull". That is, with credit cards, when you hand the merchant your card they can extract as much as they want. With Bitcoin, you send an exact amount to a merchant, and they have no power to pull out more from your account. You do not need to provide your name, address, phone number, and other private information when making a purchase through Bitcoin (although some merchants may still force you, it is not a part of Bitcoin itself). You can pay your friends, peers, co-workers without a commercial 3rd party (like PayPal), which also means lower negligible fees.

Note: Wallet-to-wallet transfer data (transaction address + amount) is public. However, this information is not tied to your name unless you somehow provide it.

Sound Money Edit

Bitcoin has all the implications of sound money, which includes the idea that many global problems come from money corruption and spending. Bitcoin is not government-controlled money. It is open-source, peer-to-peer, decentralized money, which means it's money for the people by the people. Bitcoins are created through a difficult "mining" process which is regulated by the physical capabilities of computers. It cannot be arbitrarily created, such as with government currency inflation.
