Marc Carignan writing on buying bitcoin…

We know that the volume of paper mail is shrinking around the world, putting a tremendous strain on government run postal agencies. Gone are the days where you received all your bills by “snail mail.”

Today, you can receive an email with your invoice or simply download it from a company website. And, you can send instant messages, social media posts, and emails over the internet to friends and family rather than sending notes and letters in the mail.

But the internet revolution is not over yet.

The latest revolution occurred in 2009 with the launch of bitcoin, the world’s first truly global digital currency that uses the internet for global commerce.

Now eight years later, bitcoins are traded in over 100 countries and its value has grown from $0 to over $1,000 per bitcoin, making it the most valuable currency in the world.

There are more changes coming as well.

Bitcoin – which has moved from an experimental technology and is now heading toward the mainstream – is now poised to disrupt the entire global banking industry. Just as email and internet messaging is destroying the postal service, bitcoin will have a similar dramatic impact on traditional banks.

Bitcoin transactions are faster, fees are lower, and its growing level of interest around the world is raising its value.

As bitcoins are scarce commodities, similar to gold and silver, this digital currency has now exceeded $1,000 per bitcoin. Given a maximum creation of only 21 million bitcoins – of which just over 16 million are currently in circulation – the demand for bitcoin is growing rapidly for both its investment benefit and its growing interest as an alternate form of currency.

If you have a smartphone and you know how to buy something online, you have all the skills you need to use bitcoin today. You just need to know the right steps to keep them safe and secure, away from online hackers and thieves who also favor this great new digital currency. With the right information, you can protect your bitcoins just like you would protect physical cash in your possession.

In summary, traditional banking is dying. Mobile banking apps make our transactions easier yet are simply delaying the inevitable. Just as everything else has gone online, it is now time for cash to go digital as well.

Are you going to be prepared and ready to benefit from this next wave of technology and finance evolution?
