bitcoin payment amsterdamshops

Bitcoins are a completely digital currency - customers can send bitcoins using client software on a personal computer, mobile device or web application. Bitcoin payments are easier to make than debit or credit card purchases - simply enter the recipient's address, the payment amount and press send. You as a customer are in full control of the transaction; it is impossible for us as a merchant to force unwanted or unnoticed charges. Bitcoin payments can be made without any personal information tied to the transactions made, offering strong protection against identity theft. Your payment is received almost instantly (about 10 minutes after you sent your payment) and Amsterdamshops can start preparing your order.

What is Bitcoin?

Paying with Bitcoin allows for an easy, secure and private way for you to send us a payment, without any middle men or banks. Bitcoin is an internet currency that uses secure lines of code to ensure that they cannot be manipulated in the way banks manipulate hard currency. It has led to a free and decentralized currency available to anyone and everyone worldwide with internet access.

There are many advantages of using Bitcoin over traditional payment methods. For instance, using Bitcoin makes it easier and safer to send money across the net, as there are no third-parties that incur their own costs.

Secondly, the code or BLOCK CHAIN that is attached to the payment not only makes it secure, but also anonymous, making it extremely hard for third parties and government agencies to poke their nose where it is not wanted.

Setting up a Wallet

Once you have installed a bitcoin wallet on your computer or mobile phone, it will generate your first bitcoin address that can be used to send and receive bitcoins.
