Bitcoins for Peace

Peace and Global Inclusion

  • The Bitcoin network pays no attention to one's faith, race, or gender. The only connection people require to transact with each other is the Internet.
  • Being a peer-to-peer system with no government control, the Bitcoin network enables economic liberty, innovation and freedom of speech.
  • Migrant workers can now send money home for cents rather than dollars, resulting in greater economic freedom for their families.
  • Similar to gold, Bitcoins supply cannot be inflated at will. This is different from the current money creation process used by governments and central banks. There appears to be no limit to how much debt can be created with an increasing amount being used to fund wars.

Easy to access

An internet connection and a free to install mobile or desktop application is all that's needed to join the Bitcoin network. This easy access enables billions of people previously excluded from financial markets, the opportunity to enter the online global economy. When more people are included, the world becomes a much fairer place to live in. Because of this, some people say that Bitcoin is the first truly inclusive global currency.

Once you start using bitcoin and experience how fast, simple and secure to use, you will want to use bitcoin for shopping in more places. you will see many businesses now offering discounts to promote the use of bitcoin.

Micro Transactions

Bitcoins are divisible to 8 decimal places. 0.00000001 is the smallest unit of a bitcoin. It is known as a Satoshi and named after the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. Due to the minor transaction cost of sending bitcoins, it is now possible to send payments of less than $1 anywhere in the world. To give a good example of this, imagine one thousand people wanting to send a small donation to charity. Bitcoin makes this possible by not eating up the value of the donation, as there are no high transaction fees. This means the organisation will benefit by receiving your whole donation to put to good use. Micro transactions can also be used for tipping on social media websites. This is the start of enabling financial freedom to the people in more places around the world.

Security and control over your money

Bitcoin transactions are secured by military grade cryptography. Unlike credit cards, nobody can make a bitcoin transaction on your behalf. As long as you take the required steps to protect your wallet, you will have total control over your money with stronger protection against fraud.

Imagine owning your own bitcoin bank and having total control over your bitcoins. It's as simple as that.
Dotted Separator

It's a global network

Bitcoin is a global network. It works everywhere at anytime. Its always on and never sleeps, 24/7, 365 days a year.

Unlike international bank transfers, transactions are verified in seconds and confirmed in minutes, not days. It doesn't matter where you are in the world, as long as you have internet access, you can make a Bitcoin transaction.

Low fees....... You choose

With Bitcoin, you choose the transaction fee you wish to pay. Depending on the value you are transacting and to ensure your bitcoins are sent quicker, it is recommended to include a higher voluntary transaction fee. These fees are paid to the people who are processing the transactions (also known as miners) to ensure the efficient operation of the Bitcoin network. The distributed and decentralised Bitcoin network now has more computational power than the worlds top 500 super computers combined.

Visit https://blockchain.info/charts for more technical information on the Bitcoin network.

Protect your identity

With Bitcoin, there are no credit card numbers or personal information that fraudsters can steal from you, or from companies who hold your personal details. In fact, it's possible to send a payment without revealing your identity, just like when paying for products or services in a shop with physical cash. For this reason, Bitcoin protects you from credit card fraud and identity theft.

Bill splitting

Bitcoin removes the hassle of dividing a restaurant bill with friends. As bitcoins are highly divisible, one person can pay the total bill from their bitcoin wallet app with the others sending their portion of the bill in an instant.

Bitcoin's Value

Like gold or precious metals, bitcoins are limited in supply. They are created to a strict mathematical pattern, which cannot be changed.

Bitcoins have been steadily increasing in price since the network launched in 2009. In September 2010, bitcoins were valued at a mere 7 cents. Some people think bitcoins may be worth thousands of dollars in the future, others disagree. Only time will tell.

Crypto currency is a new field of science and some people trade and speculate on the future value of the Bitcoin network, similar to share or currency trading.

Get some free visibility

Bitcoin is an emerging global market of new customers who are searching for ways to spend their bitcoins. Accepting them is a good way to attract new customers and give your business some extra visibility locally and worldwide. Accepting bitcoins as a payment method shows your customers that you are innovative and interested in improving their purchasing experience. If you are conducting business online, bitcoin is the best payment option available, due to its superior security and protection against fraud and censorship.
Dotted Separator

Protection against fraud

Any business that accepts credit cards or PayPal knows the problem of payments that are later reversed due to fraud. Chargeback fraud results in limited market reach and increased prices to certain countries, which in turn penalises the customer. Bitcoin is digital cash, which means that payments are irreversible and secure. This removes the burden or worry that businesses may have about fraudulent transactions.
Dotted Separator

Fast international payments for global trade

Bitcoins can be transferred from country to country in seconds and confirmed in minutes. As bitcoins do not have any real physical location, it's possible to transfer as many of them anywhere with no limits, delays, or excessive fees. There are no intermediate banks to make you wait three business days.
Dotted Separator

No credit card compliance required

Accepting credit cards online normally requires extensive security checks in order to comply with the PCI standard. Bitcoin still requires you to secure your wallet and your payment requests, however the need to collect and safely secure customer personal information such as their credit card details becomes unnecessary.
Dotted Separator

Accounting transparency

Bitcoin allows you the option of offering total transparency of your transactions. This is great for non-profit organisations who can allow the public to view their received donations.
