A: Bitcoin is a digital currency that is used for fast, secure payments without a central issuer or processor. Bitcoins are stored and sent electronically from private wallets. Since its introduction in 2009, Bitcoins have increased in large amounts of value due to their small supply and growing popularity.
A: After you make a cash deposit from your bank account to your Coin-Banks account, you can order Bitcoins on the exchange. When your order is filled, you can withdraw your Bitcoins to your wallet. You can buy Bitcoins from either exchanges, or directly from other people via marketplaces. The best way you can pay for them is wire transfer.
- What is verification? A: By basic AML law we are required to verify your account by asking who you are and where you live. When opening a basic account and starting to trade, we only ask a few things. Opening an account is like opening a bank account and requires supporting documents. Those documents are listed and explained in the compliance option when you select banking on the Coin-Banks website. A: All personal information is stored inside a SSL Offline Vault; we require full identification i.e. passport or driver’s license, a proof of residence such as a utility bill not older than 6 months and the proof of ownership of the payment method used.
Coin-Banks takes every precaution to prevent fraud and be fully compliant with KYC and AML regulations for trading of digital assets.

A: This depends on a number of factors- but is usually due to difficulty of getting cash in or out of an exchange. If an exchange is having difficulty with their banks, and are unable to allow customers to withdraw cash easily, this leads to more cash at the exchange looking to buy fewer Bitcoin- This pushes up the price of Bitcoin at that exchange as more people look to buy the Bitcoin and then send them to another exchange where they can cash out.
A: Trading in Bitcoin, or any other financial asset, offers many opportunities. However, it can be difficult to maneuver between brokers, spreads and management fees. That is why managing your own investments based on price variances is more relevant for trading beginners. By using the financial tool called a CFD, or Contract for Difference, you are able to open a buy or sell position based on the current price of Bitcoin in a short amount of time. Increased leverage is also available for CFD trading, giving you caliber to increase the respective value of your investment. However, this means that the respective profits or losses of your investment will also be escalated.
