Advantages of Bitcoin as a Financial Medium


(MENAFN- CCP Marketing)

Bitcoin has emerged as a virtual alternative to traditional exchange methods like credit cards and cash. But this virtual currency has generated alternative viewpoints across the world. At the same time, some individuals think Bitcoin is a financial medium for terrorists, criminals, and fraudsters. That’s because of its involvement in Dark Web trading and ransomware scams.

However, Bitcoin’s recent value upsurges have established it as a lucrative or viable investment. And many people are using platforms like Bitcoin Revolution to purchase and hold or trade this virtual currency for profits. These online trading platforms enable people to buy Bitcoin with fiat currencies like the U.S dollar.

Also, the positive hype around blockchain technology has increases the popularity of this virtual currency. All these developments affect how people perceive and use Bitcoin. So, what are the advantages of this digital currency as a financial medium?

Transactions

Agents, legal representatives, and brokers can add significant expenses and complications to what should be straightforward transactions in traditional businesses. That’s because using fiat money involves brokerage fees, paperwork, commissions, and other applicable conditions to conventional business deals.

However, using Bitcoin is a one-on-one affair. Bitcoin transactions take place on a peer-to-peer network, thereby eliminating intermediaries. And this reduces confusion and expenses that come with traditional currencies.

Asset Transfers

Some financial analysts say that Bitcoin’s underlying technology, blockchain, resembles an extensive database for property rights that people can use to enforce and execute contracts on real estate, automobiles, and other commodities. At the same time, people can use the blockchain ecosystem to facilitate specialist transfer modes.

For instance, people can design Bitcoin contracts to include third-party approvals and refer to external facts. Also, they can consist of conditions like completion at a particular time and date. Since Bitcoin holders have exclusive account governance, this reduces the expense and time involved in completing asset transfers.

Improving Confidentiality

Transaction history can provide a reference document for a credit agency or a bank under a credit or cash system. And this history can involve account balance checks to ensure that you have adequate funds. For business-critical or complex transactions, a thorough financial history examination could be necessary.

With Bitcoin, every transaction is a unique exchange between the involved parties. And the parties can negotiate and agree on the terms of the trade for every case. Additionally, information exchange occurs on a “push” basis. Thus, you only transfer what you want the recipient to receive and nothing else.

With this approach, Bitcoin protects your financial history’s privacy and you from identity theft or account threats that are more in traditional payment systems. Ideally, you don’t have to worry that somebody could expose your information somewhere in the transaction chain.

International Trade

Although many jurisdictions do not recognize Bitcoin as a legal tender, this virtual currency is not subject to interest rates, exchange rates, and transaction charges that specific countries impose on international transactions.

Using Bitcoin facilitates faster cross-border transactions and transfers. Additionally, individuals can complete these transactions faster because Bitcoin payments are almost instant. And this eliminates complications that currency exchange variations can cause at the international level.

Final Thoughts

Bitcoin is like a digital asset that a person owns after acquiring it as a payment or purchasing it via a crypto exchange using fiat money. However, this cryptocurrency is easy to store and use because the owner can quickly transfer it to another user via the internet using a mobile phone or computer. Additionally, Bitcoin employs robust encryption methods in the blockchain that safeguard Bitcoin transaction processes. These techniques also prevent account tampering and fraud while enhancing the consumer’s privacy.
