What is Bitcoin and how to participate in MMM using bitcoins?

It's more profitable, faster, and safer to provide help using bitcoins rather than traditional currencies.

Watch the video about Bitcoin's key advantages and find out why it's beneficial to use it while participating in MMM.

 

 

Bitcoin-BONUS

If you transfer money (provide help) via the Bitcoin (not a bank), you have an opportunity to acquire Mavro-50%.

Mavro-50% work under the same rules as Mavro-30%. For example, all bonuses are credited to them according to the normal procedure.

 


 

Bitcoin advantages

Bitcoin is an international electronic currency. This is a new form of money created on the basis of the program code.

Bitcoin is not owned by any state, companies or individuals.

Due to this, Bitcoin has become the world's first decentralized means of payment. Money transfers are made on the peer-to-peer principle — without intermediaries between the sender and the recipient.

Bitcoin advantages:

1. High safety level

No one can block a Bitcoin wallet. Bitcoin does not depend on central banks, local and international laws, religion and other things.

Banks and the government do not control your bitcoins — they are only available to you. The wallet is created anonymously. Cryptocurrency cannot be faked, and payments cannot be cancelled.

2. Cheap transactions anywhere in the world

Transfer fees do not depend on the amount or location. They make up less than US$1 (regardless of the amount). You can transfer money to anyone from anywhere in the world.

3. Convenience

Unlike bank transactions, bitcoin transactions may be carried out on a 24/7 basis. You can decide independently when to transfer money.

4. Instant transfers

Bank transfers take 3–5 working days on average. The speed of transfers via Bitcoin is a few seconds, or, when you are dealing with large amounts of money, — 10–60 minutes.

5. Protection against inflation

National currencies depreciate annually by 1–20 % (sometimes more). Bitcoin is backed by a limited number of units (21 million) and protected against inflation.

Cryptocurrency is becoming more and more popular, since people do not spend money on fees and instantly exchange money. In the future, the world national currencies will be merged in a single digital Bitcoin currency! MMM and Bitcoin have a similar vision: they strive to overthrow social inequality, free people from the banks’ oppression and make the world a more just place.

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency created and operating in the Internet only. No one controls it; the currency is issued through operation of millions of PC's all around the world using a math algorithm calculation software. This is exactly what bitcoin is about.

What is bitcoin?

The word “Bitcoin” in the English language has been formed by joining “bit” (minimum data unit) and “coin” (a metal coin used as money). The most widespread abbreviation of Bitcoin — BTC — is usually used in exchange trading and financial articles.

This is the first and the most well-known cryptocurrency of all, a symbol and flagship of the cryptocurrency world, and a currency unit of the same name that circulates within the system.

Cryptocurrencies in real life

In the English language, cryptocurrency is a virtual currency protected by cryptographic methods. Cryptocurrency is, above all, a fast and reliable system of payment and cash transfers based on the most advanced technologies and independent of any government.

Initially, bitcoin was only relevant for mathematicians, cryptographers and people passionate about computer and network technologies. Bitcoin was then just a proof of the ability of electronic money to exist with no guaranteed backing. It could rather be seen as an electronic equivalent of gold — just like gold, bitcoin is hard to mine, its amount is limited, and mining it requires more and more effort over time. In the fall of 2009, BTC 1 could already be bought for 0.8 cents. It was the start of exchange trading that has seen many ups and downs, high-profile bankruptcies and successful projects. Bitcoin transactions were initially rare and infrequent. The first and most famous transaction involved buying two pizzas for BTC 10,000 — it happened in May 2010 (it equaled $ 25 at the time). Since then the exchange rate has gone over $ 1,000 and back down to $ 150, but that's another story to tell…

At the early stage of Bitcoin development, it was made popular by the Japanese exchange, MtGox, and the illegal online market, Silk Road. Now, Bitcoin is independent of any exchange or pool, while illegal activities with cryptocurrencies are now dealt with by law enforcement, just like any other financial crime.

Today, Bitcoin is a modern digital currency that is ideal for payments on the Internet. More and more stores accept Bitcoin as one of payment options. Ease and convenience of bitcoin account creation attract more and more people from emerging economies to this currency. In many states of Asia and Africa, the Bitcoin network is a replacement for expensive and hard-to-access banking services. Developed countries actively use POS terminals for bitcoin payments in stores, ATM's for cryptocurrencies, hardware wallets for Bitcoin. There's been a real boom of startups that use Bitcoin. As it turns out, the block chain technology is also good for distributed storage of data on various assets, not only financial transactions. Several thousand other cryptocurrencies have been created, based on Bitcoin or from scratch.

How does bitcoin work?

Read on to learn how cryptocurrency, with Bitcoin as an example, works.

What is the most important feature of Bitcoin in economic terms? It's a digital commodity of limited supply; its algorithm is specifically designed to only allow 21 mln units max in the system, each of them also known as a bitcoin. The issue timetable is defined in the code and predefined. After the last coins have been generated, the number of units stop changing. The Bitcoin economy is based on a deflation model that raises fear among many economists. However, these fears have no practical basis.

In reality, this relatively small number of coins is quite sufficient for everyday payments as 1 bitcoin is divided into 100,000,000 units, or “satoshis”, named after the system's founder. Sometimes, millibitcoin (mBTC, one thousandth) and microbitcoin (uBTC, one millionth) are also used.

 

 

Bitcoin issue timetable

You can also use bitcoin to buy anything online, just like you do with dollars, euros or rubles, and bitcoin is traded in the exchange market like these currencies. But the most important difference between bitcoin and all other forms of money is the decentralization. Bitcoin is beyond control of any authority in the world. Some are baffled by this fact as it means that no bank can control your money.

Who created bitcoin?

Bitcoin started from a concept — a document published on 31 October 2008 by a mysterious person going under a nickname of Satoshi Nakamoto. Despite numerous journalistic investigations, no one knows who the real developer of bitcoin is or whether it's a person or a group of people. On 3 January 2009, this concept was implemented in code in real life. 06:45 PM GMT, 03 January 2009 is the moment the first block in the system — the so-called genesis block — was generated. This day is celebrated as the Bitcoin birthday by the community all over the world.

The developer of the software who named himself Satoshi Nakamoto proposed an electronic payment system based on mathematical calculations. The idea is exchanging coin with no central authority in place, electronically, more or less instantaneously, at minimum cost.

Who prints bitcoins?

NO ONE. This currency is not printed by a central bank and does not follow the rules. Banks may print any amount of money to cover a state debt, thus depreciating their own currency.

In contrast, bitcoins can only be issued digitally, and anyone can start producing or, as they say, mining bitcoins at any time. Bitcoin mining is performed by using computational capabilities of a computer in a distributed network. When bitcoins are transferred, the transaction is processed in the same network, thus turning bitcoin into an independent digital payment system.

 

 

Bitcoin mining complexity chart

Can a billion bitcoins be mined?

No. The Bitcoin code contains a limit that set the maximum number of mined bitcoins at 21 million. However, bitcoin can be endlessly divided into smaller units — it's a digital currency after all! 1 satoshi is BTC 0.00000001 (name after the system founder)

What is bitcoin's backing?

National currencies used to be backed by gold or silver; now they are backed by GDP. Theoretically, you could walk into any bank in your country and exchange your paper money for its gold equivalent, or vice versa. Bitcoin is not backed by anything; it's pure mathematics.

Any person from anywhere on the globe may run the bitcoin mining script from their computer and feel like a central bank in miniature. The source code of the script is openly published, and anyone may see how it works.

Differences between bitcoins and conventional electronic currencies

Below is a list of features that make bitcoin stand out among electronic and paper currencies:

  • Decentralization and availability
    The Bitcoin network is a combination of all client programs (wallets) and a distributed database, or block chain that is stored on each computer with a full client installed. The block chain is a fully open register of all transactions in the system. Anyone may connect to this register via their personal wallet or a web-interface of special monitoring services from anywhere in the world, with no passwords or any other authorization requirements. There is no central body that would control the network which is distributed among all members, with each computer mining bitcoins being a part of the system. It means that no central body is in a position to dictate rules to bitcoin owners as happened, for instance, in early 2013 in Cyprus. Even if a part of the system goes offline, the payment system will remain sustainable.
  • Anonymous payment opportunities
    Bitcoin is a convenient and optionally anonymous method of payment where an address (account number in the system) is not related to its owner and requires no ID to be created. It's a string of about 34 Latin alpha-numeric characters long in various registers. For instance, an address might look as follows: 1BQ9qza7fn9snSCyJQB3ZcN46biBtkt4ee. It may be converted into a QR-code or any other 2D code to facilitate payment, or it may be transferred in its initial form. Yes, that's right. It's totally anonymous and absolutely transparent at the same time. You can create an infinite number of bitcoin addresses with no reference to your name, address or any other data.
  • Complete payment transparency
    The history of any payment may (theoretically) be traced down to the moment of coin generation, and this payment will never be removed from the database. Knowing a Bitcoin address only, you may view all transactions accepted by this address or submitted from it at any time. The Bitcoin network stores the entire history of transactions that have ever taken place; it's called a series of blocks or block chain. A block chain is a public shared register that represents a basis of the entire Bitcoin network. All confirmed transactions are included in the block chain. Based on this information, bitcoin wallets may calculate your balance and verify that bitcoin owners actually spend bitcoins in new transactions. The integrity and chronological sequence of a block chain are based on secure cryptography. The block chain knows it all. Therefore, if you have a publicly used bitcoin address, anyone may see how many bitcoins you own; however, if you do not specify it's your address, no one will ever know it belongs to you. To ensure complete anonymity, one Bitcoin address is generally used for a single transaction.
  • Near-zero fees Your bank may charge you a $ 50 fee for an international funds transfer in cold blood. Bitcoin will never do that. There are small fees that are totally insignificant and do not depend on the transfer amount.
  • Speed of transfer
    You can transfer money to anyone anywhere; it will be delivered in a matter of minutes after the Bitcoin network processes the payment.
  • Irrevocable transactions
    After bitcoin is transferred to the recipient, it's impossible to get it back. Unless the recipient is willing to do it themselves.
  • No network control
    Since a block chain is a distributed database based on peers, the Bitcoin network has no controlling central body that can suspend an account, change the amount of currency units in the system, lock or cancel a payment. Transactions within the system are irrevocable, just like transactions with cash
  • Unequalled security
    Each new block adds to the requirements to computational capabilities miners need to calculate the block chain from zero; the longer the chain, the harder it is to hack the network. Today, Bitcoin is a decentralized computational network that has a performance 8 times higher (in terms of SHA-256 hash calculation rate) than the total performance if all super-computers in the world. To capture control over it, even partially, vast resources and hundred-million-dollar expenses are required.
  • Network support award
    New bitcoins are issued as an award for those who perform computation providing for transaction transfer. Computation has been dubbed mining, from the English word “mining” meaning extraction of minerals. Those who engage in computation activities are called miners. Their task is writing all transactions that took place from the moment the last block was issued (10 minutes on average) into a single block and “seal” it with a complex cryptographic signature. The next block is calculated based on the signature of the preceding block that ensures irrevocability of transactions and prevents counterfeit currency units from getting into the system. This way, the blocks are connected together, forming a block chain. These rules prevent making changes to the previous block as this would invalidate all subsequent blocks. Additionally, mining creates a lottery-like process where no user can simply add blocks into the chain. Thus, no one can control the block chain or replace its parts to roll back their transactions.
  • Ease of use
    You would have to go through seven levels of hell to open an account for a company in a bank; you might also be banished with no explanation. It's not a problem in the Bitcoin network — you'll need 5 minutes to create a bitcoin wallet and start using it. No questions, no fees.
  • Free choice of participation level
    You can install an official Bitcoin Core client that stores the entire history of transactions. If you do not need offline operation and block chain analysis features, you can install one of the lite or mobile wallets that require a lot less resources. If you only intend to pay for small purchases while travelling or to just try out the technology, a mobile or online wallet would be enough. Maximum safety is ensured by hardware wallets with additional protection.

As a new user, you can start using bitcoin even if you don't know all technical details. As soon as you install a bitcoin wallet on your computer or mobile phone, it will generate your first bitcoin address; in the future you will be able to create as many addresses as you want. You can communicate your addresses to your friends who will be able to make payments to you or vice versa. In reality, it's very much like e-mail, except that a bitcoin address must only be used once.

A transaction is a transfer of funds between bitcoin wallets to be included in a block chain. Bitcoin wallets contain confidential information, the so-called secret code, that is used to sign transactions and provide a mathematical proof of the transaction having been approved by the wallet owner. This signature also prevents making changes to the transaction after it is submitted to the network. All transactions are broadcast to all users and confirmed by the network via mining, generally within 10 minutes.

Different states have very different attitudes towards cryptocurrencies. Some clearly encourage their use — in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, some US state, various offshore countries; others impose serious constraints that could be transformed into a total ban — in Indonesia, China, Russia, Ukraine. Total bans have so far been imposed by the hot Latin Americans in Bolivia and Ecuador.

Many governments have chosen to monitor the situation with careful optimism — most countries of the European Union, Great Britain and Switzerland, the US federal government, Canada, Japan and countries of South and East Asia. Most developed countries are adapting their financial legislation to be able to regulate cryptocurrencies and are about to resolve this issue.

 


 

Legality of Bitcoin

 


 

Bitcoins are legal if used for legal purposes. If you do not commit unlawful acts, your operations with Bitcoins cannot be suspicious.

The unique nature of Bitcoin does not allow the law to consider it as money. Also Bitcoin cannot be deemed as a product or service. The question of the legal regulation is still in its infancy, and governments of different countries look at each other carefully, hoping that one of them will prompt how, eventually, to treat the cryptocurrency.

As a whole, in relation to Bitcoin the countries can be divided into 3 camps:

  1. The countries which understand that Bitcoin is a new and perspective technology which can bring many positive things.
  2. The countries which have no common ground, and they have been studying Bitcoin so far -- without accepting it officially, or rejecting it.
  3. Totalitarian states which are, literally, afraid of Bitcoin, as they got used to exercise full control over whole financial flow of funds.

Thus there is a question: can Bitcoin be prohibited or closed down?

Theoretically, such conditions can be created in which it will be very ifficult to use it, however, in real life it is practically impossible. Bitcoin is not owned by anybody, that is why there is no one to put pressure on that Bitcoin be closed down. Each user is a full-fledged part of a network, while there are millions of such users, and all of them are from different countries.

The only leverage on Bitcoin are exchange markets that convert fiat money to the cryptocurrency. In theory the government can deny banks to deal with such exchanges, but in practice there are many ways to circumvent the bun.

After creating your Getting Help Request you should wait for orders to be displayed on your dashboard. You will be able to see information about participant(s) who will transfer funds.

 


 

 

Appeared orders on your Dashboard will be of yellow color. After a sender confirmed that funds had been transferred, make sure to check your account. You should confirm a receipt of funds only when you see them in your account.

When a sender confirmed sending funds but you did nothing with an order, after some time the order’s icon will become yellow with a question mark.

When you click on this icon there will be two options:

  1. confirm the receipt of funds
  2. inform that the funds are not received.

 


 

 

If the funds are not received, after an investigation of Security Department this icon will become red with a cross.

It means that the order wasn’t completed. Such icon will appear if a sender didn’t confirm timely that the funds were sent.

In case of described situations the dispatcher will create another order for you with another participant to send his/her help to you.

 


 

 

Confirm orders only after making sure that the funds were received on your bank account or bitcoin wallet!

If funds are received and you confirmed receipt of funds, then this icon will turn green. It means that help has been successfully provided!

 


 

 

Keep in mind that you can extend the period of payment for 24 hours, if necessary. If a sender is not able to meet a standard requirement for 72 hours for banks or 36 hours for bitcoins, you can give him additional time to complete this order. In order to do that:

  1. Сlick on the icon.
  2. Click on 24 hours extension.

Always report to the Support Team if you notice any unusual activity. FAQ: How to get in touch with the Support Team?

 


 

How to check if transaction was successful?

 


 

 

Step 1: look at an order status in your Personal Office. After a participant receives funds, he will confirm the transaction.

 


 

 

Step 2: Bitcoin transactions will appear almost immediately in your transaction history.
As soon as the transaction is completed, you will see “Unconfirmed transaction” in your transaction history, which means your transaction has not been confirmed yet.

 


 

Although Bitcoins were sent, your transaction has not yet been processed and can be cancelled.

Your transaction is considered completed when it has got 3 confirmations. It usually takes about 30 minutes, but the period length may change. Your transaction, till then, will have been displayed as pending (Unconfirmed transaction).

30 minutes is the average time to get confirmation. Generally, getting confirmed may take more or less than half an hour.

Confirmation is a form of reaching agreement about who and how many Bitcoins possesses.

As soon as confirmation is available, everyone agrees that you fully own now the Bitcoins you received, and they are at your disposal.

Until the moment your transaction gets confirmed, some network hosts check if the system is not deceived in any way. The more confirmations you receive the less the chance of its cancellation.

Only 6 confirmations or 1 hour (if based on time) will suffice to make the transaction cancellation almost impossible.

It is considerably better than using credit cards where the return of funds can be carried out even 3 months after the transfer!

 


 

How to check your transactions?

 

 

Follow the link:
https://blockchain.info/wallet/#/login

Enter your login and password

 


 

 

Click on “TRANSACTIONS”

 


 

 

Choose the transaction and click
If the transaction is not confirmed, there will be written “Pending: 0/3 confirmations”

 


 

 

If the transaction is confirmed, you will see “Transaction Confirmed”

As soon as the transaction is confirmed, you can use the Bitcoins you received at your discretion.

 


 

How does Bitcoin transaction work?

 


 

Bitcoin system’s transactions are conducted between wallets which have digital signature. Each online transaction is public, and every participant may not only view its sender’s and recipient’s data in a public block chain, but also to trace the whole history of transactions, which were made prior to it — down to the inception of the first cryptocurrency.

In order to understand what a transaction is, have a look at the example below.

Diego sends Marco some Bitcoins. This activity is a transaction itself which will contain three types of data:

  • Input — a signature evidencing which address Bitcoins came to Diego from (let’s assume he has received them from Pedro);
  • Amount — the number of Bitcoins which Duiego sends Marco;
  • Output — Marco’s Bitcoin address.

To send anyone Bitcoins, you need two things: a Bitcoin address and a privacy key. The privacy key is a sequence of letters and digits, but unlike your Bitcoin address it is kept secret.

Your Bitcoin address is like a transparent deposit box. Anyone can look inside, see what there is, however, only that can open and take the content who has a privacy key.

Getting back to Diego and Marco, when Diego wants to send some digital coins to Marco, then, using the privacy key, he signs a transfer “request” where, as indicated above, three types of data are provided: the Bitcoin address, from which Bitcoins came to Diego, the amount and recipient’s address.

After that, he sends this “request” from his Bitcoin wallet to the Bitcoin network, where it is found by miners who then confirm a new online transaction by adding it into the transaction block, which, eventually, leads to increasing the balance of Marco’s Bitcoin address.
