This is what I use when I'm chatting on Facebook statuses after I've lured them into a Bitcoin conversation and how they work I used it like twice but before i use it more would anyone say there is anything misleading(mind you this is for a general purpose any age group so everyone can understand)? I'll usually paste this after they always ask "How do you fill up your Gas? or get your groceries?" I'd like to note this is a very common question I get when I talk about Bitcoins to people whom have never heard of it.

Bitcoins aren't meant to replace any other currency(Bitcoins isn't technically not a currency its more like a store of value or bartering value). Bitcoins should however be used to prevent identity theft when purchasing things on line.

Think about it when you buy with a credit card not only are you forced to typing in your living address you are forced to give out your credit card number. This is a huge deal because the unfortunate thing about credit/debit cards is that once some one has acquired the number by means of hacking a merchants website it is over they can charge it up until hits the negatives.

Bitcoins however they use encryption methods that will only allow ONLY the owner of the said Bitcoins to be spent and no one else.
Here are some other reasons why it is use full

1]Your account can never reach the negatives

2]It cost only $0.001 to send funds to another person(with paypal it is 3% + $2 and bank wire transfers are $10 minimum)

3]It takes only 10 minutes at the most to send any amount of Bitcoins across the globe(Banks statements wont show up on your on-line bill for up to 3 days and if its over $5,000 they may hold your funds for up to 10 days until it clears how inconvenient!!!)

4]You can not have more then 21 million Bitcoins into existence so its like gold and the idea is that the value will always slowly increase(but that increase is just a theory until proven).

If you read this far your probubly still interested on how this all "really" works well here is a very good instructional video made by a dedicated bit coin enthusiast(not me) the video is like 3 minutes long FIGHT IDENTITY THEFT!

You actually think that is a "Closing" pitch?



#2 Tone it down

# 3 Huh WTF, What do bank statements online have to do with sending money? BTW BOA, Wells Fargo, Citi and almost all banks update in real time in 2011. This was true about 5 years ago.

#4 Delete, it's confusing to someone who doesn't understand bitcoins and/or how inflation works.

People aren't interested in 3 minute videos, proven fact is 1:03 secs for a product, maximum.

Just trying to help, nothing personal intended.

~BCX~

Thanks for your insight but your forgetting about weekends mate Wink. Sometimes my bank(one you have listed) won't post my debit/credit statements for up to 2.5 days and if i remember correctly statements are completely frozen on Sundays.

Yes, but can you receive an international bank wire on a Sunday?

Only problem with that copy/paste is it's way to long for the average internet searchers.
A better tl;dr version would be:

"I made over $30,000 last month with Bitcoins."

They'll be doing researches on their own shortly after. Cheesy

You can not roll a BitCoin, but you can rollback some. Cheesy

Apparently English is not your primary language.  
couple of comments : 'cma'  I am not very good at english, but I can hear when something doesn't sound right.
  • "Bitcoins aren't meant to replace any other currency(Bitcoins isn't technically not a currency"   aren't meant to replace other currencies,  also you have  a double negative at  " isn't technically not a currency"
  • " not only are you forced to typing in your living address"   typing should be type.  oh, and living should be billing,  you are not forced to type in your home address.  (also another clue , no one says living address.)
  • " million Bitcoins into existence s"   into should be in.   you aren't into existence, your in existenc
  • "It cost only $0.001 to send fu"   it doesn't  cost anything to transfer btccoins.   You can offer a transaction fee, but it is not required.


I could go on and on, but really, please do not just indiscriminately paste this crap all over the place,  bitcoins have a bad enough rap already.

You do realize selling the thing as a get-rich-quick scheme is the whole reason it's in this funk now, don't you?

P.S. Paypal fees are $0.30 + 2.9%, not $2 what the fuck.

Yes, but can you receive an international bank wire on a Sunday?

Does it really matter if you have to wait until Monday and then three more days to convert the money back to cash anyway? Even if you find a merchant that takes BTC, he still couldn't ship anything on Sunday even if he wanted to.  So what's the benefit?

Some geeks arent meant to be business man.

I agree with you heartly. They keep using bitcoin as a currency while in reality it isnt.
