Tips for Approaching Bitcoin Safely in Adelaide
When it comes to embarking upon any new major financial endeavour, it can be useful to remember (and update) Banquo’s famous request of the Witches in Macbeth.
“If you can look into the seeds of time” and tell us which new innovations will be the next Apple iPod and which will be the next Microsoft Zune, “Speak then to me.”
On the one hand, we all want to predict the next big thing. On the other hand, Shakespeare knew the dangers of making predictions, due in no small part to the fact that, feeling as though we know the future, we can make rash decisions that can set in motion self-destructive self-fulfilling prophecies.
Bitcoin has the potential to be big but you have to approach it with equal parts confidence and caution. That begins with researching the product and knowing that you are dealing with a trustworthy seller.
To that end, here are a few things to keep in mind when looking to trade with others and buy bitcoin in Adelaide.
Look for Online Reputability
The online cryptocurrency community is nothing if not vocal. They are incredibly passionate about their product and field and truly believe in it. They can therefore be some of the best and most trustworthy critics when it comes to outing frauds. True believers in bitcoin want to see it succeed and thus don’t want their good name, let alone the economic viability of their system, tainted or threatened by fraudsters.
As such, you’ll want to check out r/bitcoin and other online outlets to see what the community has to say about certain sellers and users of bitcoin in your area. Bitcoin can be a really great opportunity to buy and sell things just so long as you know that the other side of the transaction will hold up their end of the bargain.
Look for Places to Use it
In addition, you want to make sure that you know of places in Adelaide that will accept bitcoin. Doing a quick Google search ahead of time can save you a lot of headache.
Check the Infrastructure
One of the biggest selling points of bitcoin is that it is data-based and decentralised. Even so, you’re going to want to check into the actual infrastructure of anywhere that accepts bitcoin. In particular, you want to be sure that when you buy and sell bitcoin, their systems will be able to handle the transaction. Remember that bitcoin is still a new currency and getting systems adapted to it will take time so even if a seller’s intentions are good, their systems may not yet be equipped to handle bitcoin.
