I am designing a custom hologram for physical bitcoins, and I would like to make it multi-lingual.

What is the best word(s) to use to say something is a genuine item.

English words:
Authentic
Genuine
Original

This would be to signify that this item is not a fake.

Also, do you primarily use the word Bitcoin, or do you use some translated form of that word.

we only use the word "bitcoin", i don't know any german translation Smiley

the exact translation of "authentic" is "authentisch", in my eary it sounds a little old fashioned Smiley
the translation of original is also "original". if you say "original bitcoins", it also can mean that your and only your product is the original and was the first of its kind.

as you see, it is quite hard for me to find a translation that fits your needs, but maybe others have better ideas Smiley

I'd suggest using "echt" or "original" as translations for "genuine" - both are regularly used in slogans advertising the genuineness of products. Like gimme_bottles said, there's no other word in use for "Bitcoin".

I think he is right! "Original" is probably the closest translation. If you want to use it for a word in singular (like 1 Bitcoin) it would be "Original Bitoin" - plural (some Bitcoins): "Originale Bitcoins".
"echt"(sl) or "echte"(pl) could suit too. It means 'not fake' like if you would say 'a thing's made of real gold'.

Btw bitcoin in german is always written with a capital B.

Could you give us the exact term you want to use or do you just want to print the single word?
