Are you trying to figure out how to buy Bitcoin? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Buying and selling crypto assets has never been as easy as it is now. Voyager offers trading support for an ever-growing number of crypto assets commission-free* with USD, including BTC.
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin, often referred to as "digital gold," is the first digital currency and it uses blockchain technology to manage a decentralized immutable ledger. Bitcoin is not controlled by any central authority and has a shared record of every transaction ever made. Bitcoins don’t need to go through a bank or clearinghouse to transfer funds since they are transferred directly from user to user. Some benefits of using Bitcoin versus a traditional bank are:
- Lower fees
- Assets can be transferred between countries
- Accounts can’t be frozen
- No prerequisites or arbitrary limits
