I was wondering they need to be able to understand Bitcoin and all the risks which I would be more than willing to help with but what is the best age to actually introduce them to it and allow them to maybe trade under my supervision? I have a sense and I know it's my responsibility to chose when they are allowed to trade and interact with others but I would like to introduce them as soon as possible and it will all be under my super vision.

So when did you introduce Bitcoin to your kids?

I don't think you should be indoctrinating them with Bitcoin at all. If it gets mainstream attention and people are actually using it, you can just tell them how it works as soon as they may need to use it. But apart from that, it depends whether they ask about it. Why forcing that technology on them?

As soon as they can read and start to work on computer, you can introduce your kids to Bitcoin, but just gibe basic info.
If you think that Bitcoin is good investment, you can start collecting Bitcoin for them and help their financial future.

Actually they are interested but I think that's because they've seen me doing some things related to Bitcoin and want to help out I know that they don't understand and haven't researched into it.

Simple. As soon as they're old enough to start learning about money and can use a cheap tablet without breaking it or downloading $10,000 worth of apps, introduce them to Bitcoin. Tell them they can "earn" Bitcoin by doing their chores, using good manners at the dinner table, and going to bed without giving you a fight, and then redeem those Bitcoin for rewards like candy bars and movie nights.

Pre-womb. A Bitcoiner SHOULD only procreate with a fellow Bitcoiner. Let me rephrase that.

At the same time they start using other currencies. When you open their first savings account you can also set up their first bit coin wallet.

You should introduce things that are revolutionary and important to your children so they can learn about technology that is important. If they understand bitcoin and how to use it properly then they will less likely do something that would cause their coins to be stolen when they start using it.

Best age would be 8 - 10. Especially when you taught them how to save money and they are old enough to understand the concept of money.

The best age to introduce BTC to kids when he understands to manage money  Grin
But if that is the best for me age is 14 years  Smiley
I'm 14 now and I wish I had discovered bitcoin when I was 12. The funny thing is, my parents don't understand it and think it is a waste of time.
But when bitcoin hits $10 000 they'll regret it... Smiley

At current with bitcoin still being in it's early stages still I would say it's too early to be explaining to kids exactly what it is until it's being used a lot more than it is now.

Once it is being used a lot more than it is now I would say when they are able to fully understand it better would be a best age, around 13 years old is appropriate in my opinion.

Explain what crypto currency is and not specifically bitcoin.

The utility and function of bitcoin can easily be copied by any coin developer.

Yeah when they are old enough to understand the technical terms. Don't force it on them, like most people do with religion...

I would agree that this is probably the best age to teach a child about bitcoin. You should teach them around the same time you teach them about "traditional' fiat money. You may want to wait a little while longer until you teach them how to secure their coins and the risks of not securing them.

When they are old enough to use a computer and don't fall for scams, neither be hacked.

I think wharever age you would be confident to let them take part in this forum, considering we have a gambling section and topics like lets talk about how hot the asians girls are. It really varies from person to person.

Bitcoin secuirty starts with Pc security, if children knows they should not open the strangers files its pretty safe to use bitcoin. I also think best age is 10 and above.

Honestly, introduce it to them now. Why wait? There're different levels of freedom you should give them based on the percentage of their intelligence they have developed, but that can be a sliding scale (depending on your judgement).
