Bitcoin Newcomers FAQ - Please read!

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
It all started with the release of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper however that will probably go over the head of most readers so we recommend the following videos for a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Some other great resources include Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series.
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute.
Some Bitcoin statistics can be found here and here. Developer resources can be found here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here.
Potential upcoming protocol improvements and scaling resources here and here.
The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!)

Key properties of Bitcoin

Where can I buy bitcoins?

Bitcoin.org and BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (even just a few dollars worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.

Watch out for scams

As mentioned above, Bitcoin is decentralized, which by definition means there is no official website or Twitter handle or spokesperson or CEO. However, all money attracts thieves. This combination unfortunately results in scammers running official sounding names or pretending to be an authority on YouTube or social media. Many scammers throughout the years have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Websites like bitcoin(dot)com and the btc subreddit are active scams. Almost all altcoins (shitcoins) are marketed heavily with big promises but are really just designed to separate you from your bitcoin. So be careful: any resource, including all linked in this document, may in the future turn evil. Don't trust, verify. Also as they say in our community "Not your keys, not your coins".

Just a reminder that Dell sells more than PCs and laptops. You can buy an Android tablet for 0.25 BTC or a Vizio 40" LCD TV for 0.62 BTC. If you're buying one of those items, do it there as a show of thanks.

Edit: I should have prefaced this by saying that this is currently for US customers. If you're overseas, definitely let them know you want them to expand to your country.

After 7 PC builds and as a first time Alienware owner...I don't think I will be going back to DIY builds.

tl;dr - Extremely happy as an Alienware owner. Will continue to purchase Alienware pre-builds as long as the quality remains good. . I used to be one of those PC builders who would scoff at the idea of owning a pre-built PC. I would say they were overpriced, don't perform as well to a DIY, sometimes use unknown OEM parts, etc. I'm sure many of you are familiar with the criticisms leveled against pre-built manufacturers, let's just say I had an attitude of superiority over people that went pre-built, especially something from Dell. . Well now I'm singing a different tune and would like to defend the concept of pre-builts first. . After doing 7 PC builds, it is so refreshing to take a PC out of the box, plug it in and power it up with no hassle or issues. I've done builds where parts either came DOA, had issues during POST, or couldn't get past the BIOS, or temps were too hot that required redoing thermal paste/reseating cooler, or other weird abnormalities that required troubleshooting that could last a week before finally isolating the bad part, etc. I would dread having to do a new PC build because I never know what to expect, either things go smoothly or something goes wrong. It just no longer became fun to do builds anymore. I'm also getting older and I no longer have the patience to tweak parts to make them work optimally. . So the idea that I can go on a website, pick out whatever parts I want for my PC, have it assembled by Dell and then shipped to my door is awesome. I love the convenience. The only thing I swapped out was the GFX card, which was a pretty easy affair. . But why Alienware? Why not NZXT BLD, or iBuyPower, or any of these other companies? Well a couple of reasons. First, I read reviews of the Aurora R8 online with the specs I wanted (i9-9900k, RTX2080ti, etc.) and the components under benchmark testing matched up with results in a DIY build. There were no criticisms regarding the hardware, except for one reviewer that showed FPS results 10-15 frames lower than other RTX2080ti cards (but I suspect the problem lies in some of the other components in that build which may have throttled performance and it wasn't clear what the reviewer's overclock settings were, if any). Just to be on the safe side and taking that on face value, I decided to purchase a card separately. Anyway, so the reviews were good across the board and what you would expect performance wise. The other thing is customer support. Apparently if you run into problems with NZXT BLD and some of these other pre-built manufacturers, you run into non-existent customer support. Well if you are spending a lot of money for a build, I think there needs to be decent enough support to back it. Dell used to be notorious back in the day for having some of the worst customer support, however I looked into recent reports of their service being much better than it used to be. Supposedly Dell invested a ton of money in getting their service up to par. I mean if I ever need some kind of troubleshooting, I'm sure it'll probably start with a guy in India but a lot of the recent feedback I've read seems to reassure folks are taken care of, it seems. Lastly, the prices on Dell pre-builts, especially if you get them during a sale and have an employer discount and whatever else, can come out to being near identical to a DIY with the same specs or even slightly cheaper. I saved roughly ~$1k getting an Alienware during a sale and pretty much came out to the same price as one I did on PCPartsPicker. I guess the DIY market is still reeling from the bitcoin mining craze. Oh and one other thing about Alienware, and I know this sounds silly, but is its reputation. Dell isn't going to risk putting crappy components that could severely damage the brand in the eyes of consumers. Especially a brand that is supposed to be their premier gaming line. Imagine if their lineup had a failure rate of like 30% or something, nobody would ever trust them again. . So anyway, I am extremely happy with how my Alienware is performing. I've already run a lot of stress tests on the components and they match the average of other user results. The only glaring downside is the funky Alienware software, drivers, and typical Windows BS. Really if there is anything to complain about here is how much I dislike Windows OS and much of the software, but none of that is necessarily Alienware's fault except their Command Center. There's a lot of room for improvement. I'm using their OC2 profile for overclocking the CPU @ 5Ghz and RAM @ XMP. I could do this stuff in the BIOS but again I can just click it here in the software which makes the changes in the BIOS for me. Already ran OC Scanner thru Afterburner on my card. . I plan on purchasing more Alienware pre-built PCs in the years to come. I couldn't be happier with the convenience and performance. And I hope the support is good whenever I would need it. Definitely would recommend the brand to those tired of doing their own builds.

Let’s dream that you are traveling on an imaginary tour. And during the whole trip you have only bitcoins with you. Is it possible to get from point A to point B using cryptocurrency only?
Today we can buy, sell, exchange cryptocurrency, and even pay for real items and services with it. Now cryptocurrency is an ultrafashionable digital currency that is still not recognized as an official payment method in different countries. Many countries accept cryptocurrency as something like stocks and securities only but it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t be used as money. Global corporations such as Expedia, Dell and Microsoft are active users of a new payment method. Such way of purchases is not very popular in the world at large at the moment but there are several methods to buy something.

First of all, we need to buy tickets, a tour package or book a room in the Hotel. CheapAir, Destina, Expedia, TravelForCoins and some other services will help us to do it. In other words, with a strong desire, you can travel everywhere you want.
Secondly, just in case we can get a pool of fiat money for extras. Ultra-modern Bitcoin ATM will help us. About 58 countries have Bitcoin ATMs. The USA, Canada, and Great Britain are on the top of the rating by the number of machines. ATMs are very modern and smart. The interesting fact is that you can find these machines in a small eatery or a grocery store right between alcohol bottles and magazines.

Thirdly, we have to be ready for the trip and buy a suitcase, a swimsuit or a pair of comfortable shoes. Online shopping will help us with that.
There are hundreds of online stores that accept cryptocurrency, for example, Aliexpress, Overstock, Amazon and many others. If stores accept Bitcoin, there will be an orange and white Bitcoin logo on a par with other methods of payment. Everybody should be as attentive as possible in the process of payment for purchases because if a user makes a mistake he can stay without goods and money.
Nowadays there are even special platforms like Particl where you can buy goods for cryptocurrency only. The main idea of the Particl ecosystem is the building of a digital marketplace. Users can pay with PART coins or choose other cryptocurrencies to make a deal there.
If there are some difficulties with payment in Bitcoins, you will always have an opportunity to buy a gift card online and continue your shopping. One such service of converting cryptocurrency into gift cards is redeeem com. It is a trusted peer-to-peer crypto gift card exchange service. Using Bitcoin and dozens of other cryptocurrencies you will be able to buy something on Amazon, Walmart, or some other global shopping platforms and get a 20% discount or more.

Fourthly, you may get bored on the way, so we offer you to download an App and become acquainted with CryptoKitties.
It is a game in which you can buy, sell and grow virtual cats and get benefits. This application blew up the Internet. There are no two similar cats, everyone is unique and has a special set of features. The cat seller sets the initial price at the auction and defines its duration. If the cat is on sale for a long time – it’s getting cheaper. It is not necessary to buy a cat, because everyone can create it. Cats owners have to agree on the creation of an offspring. The owner of a female cat will have a new pet and a male cat owner will get Ethereum. Characteristics of a “newborn” cat will depend on 256-bit genes of “mom and dad”.
Perhaps you will get hungry on the way, and there is no need to go far to find a place where you can eat and pay in Bitcoin. Everybody knows the Subway fast-food restaurant. It is the first cafe where Bitcoin started to be accepted as an official payment because the founder of the restaurant chain is a big fan of digital currency.
Furthermore, if during the trip you want to rent a car for going to see the splendor of landscapes and architecture around, or buy gift certificates for the friend whose birthday you will miss due to travel, there are certain services where you can do it for crypto coins.
Maybe, who knows, your final destination called point B is the incredible outer space. Virgin Galactic group calls itself a high-technology company that is looking to the future and claims that bitcoin is our future. The price for a suborbital flight that they offer is 250 000 U.S. dollars or 342 BTC. The space tourism industry is at the initial stage of development now but it has good prospects.

Let’s dream that you are traveling on an imaginary tour. And during the whole trip you have only bitcoins with you. Is it possible to get from point A to point B using cryptocurrency only?
Today we can buy, sell, exchange cryptocurrency, and even pay for real items and services with it. Now cryptocurrency is an ultrafashionable digital currency that is still not recognized as an official payment method in different countries. Many countries accept cryptocurrency as something like stocks and securities only but it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t be used as money. Global corporations such as Expedia, Dell and Microsoft are active users of a new payment method. Such way of purchases is not very popular in the world at large at the moment but there are several methods to buy something.

First of all, we need to buy tickets, a tour package or book a room in the Hotel. CheapAir, Destina, Expedia, TravelForCoins and some other services will help us to do it. In other words, with a strong desire, you can travel everywhere you want.
Secondly, just in case we can get a pool of fiat money for extras. Ultra-modern Bitcoin ATM will help us. About 58 countries have Bitcoin ATMs. The USA, Canada, and Great Britain are on the top of the rating by the number of machines. ATMs are very modern and smart. The interesting fact is that you can find these machines in a small eatery or a grocery store right between alcohol bottles and magazines.

Thirdly, we have to be ready for the trip and buy a suitcase, a swimsuit or a pair of comfortable shoes. Online shopping will help us with that.
There are hundreds of online stores that accept cryptocurrency, for example, Aliexpress, Overstock, Amazon and many others. If stores accept Bitcoin, there will be an orange and white Bitcoin logo on a par with other methods of payment. Everybody should be as attentive as possible in the process of payment for purchases because if a user makes a mistake he can stay without goods and money.
Nowadays there are even special platforms like Particl where you can buy goods for cryptocurrency only. The main idea of the Particl ecosystem is the building of a digital marketplace. Users can pay with PART coins or choose other cryptocurrencies to make a deal there.
If there are some difficulties with payment in Bitcoins, you will always have an opportunity to buy a gift card online and continue your shopping. One such service of converting cryptocurrency into gift cards is redeeem com. It is a trusted peer-to-peer crypto gift card exchange service. Using Bitcoin and dozens of other cryptocurrencies you will be able to buy something on Amazon, Walmart, or some other global shopping platforms and get a 20% discount or more.

Fourthly, you may get bored on the way, so we offer you to download an App and become acquainted with CryptoKitties.
It is a game in which you can buy, sell and grow virtual cats and get benefits. This application blew up the Internet. There are no two similar cats, everyone is unique and has a special set of features. The cat seller sets the initial price at the auction and defines its duration. If the cat is on sale for a long time – it’s getting cheaper. It is not necessary to buy a cat, because everyone can create it. Cats owners have to agree on the creation of an offspring. The owner of a female cat will have a new pet and a male cat owner will get Ethereum. Characteristics of a “newborn” cat will depend on 256-bit genes of “mom and dad”.
Perhaps you will get hungry on the way, and there is no need to go far to find a place where you can eat and pay in Bitcoin. Everybody knows the Subway fast-food restaurant. It is the first cafe where Bitcoin started to be accepted as an official payment because the founder of the restaurant chain is a big fan of digital currency.
Furthermore, if during the trip you want to rent a car for going to see the splendor of landscapes and architecture around, or buy gift certificates for the friend whose birthday you will miss due to travel, there are certain services where you can do it for crypto coins.
Maybe, who knows, your final destination called point B is the incredible outer space. Virgin Galactic group calls itself a high-technology company that is looking to the future and claims that bitcoin is our future. The price for a suborbital flight that they offer is 250 000 U.S. dollars or 342 BTC. The space tourism industry is at the initial stage of development now but it has good prospects.

As you can see cryptocurrency is legal in many countries and the number of places where you can use it is growing every year. If you would like to know more about the services where we can buy something for digital coins, you can take a look at a special service – coinmap org.

Some notes:
I bought the 1080 ti's brand new from a guy on craigslist for MSRP. He bought a ton of them them to mine crypto and didn't realize that you had to have a PC to go with them. He literally thought you could plug them in to the wall to make bitcoins...
The actual ones I got were two Founders Edition, still in box.
I overclocked the CPU to 5Ghz without any stability issues at all. The only other tweaking I did was to increase the power to the graphics cards to max and to overclock the monitor from the default 100Hz to 120Hz and then enable GSync at 120Hz.
I got this rig mostly to play World of Warcraft, which is honestly overkill. I'd only planned on getting a single 1080 ti but he was selling two of them at MSRP so I couldn't resist. WoW is largely CPU bound unless you decide to put every setting on ultra and then increase the view distance to maximum. Right now the game is happily rendering over half of the continent on a single screen at 120 fps on Ultra in the most populated areas.
Comically, this is only one one card. I had to disable SLI until I have time to get it working properly with WoW. I tested it on Far Cry 5 Ultra (on ultrawwide) and I'm getting a consistent 200+ FPS with all settings maxed out in the game and in the testing section.
The thing is also really quiet, even with the GPU fans on max.
I still have a few things to do. I want to desolder the always-on red LED on my Soundblaster Z card as well as set up the RGB on the power supply (right now it just cycles in color).
The only thing I'm less than happy with is the Alienware monitor. I'm moving from a 2560x1600 monitor to the 1440 Ultrawide and I really miss the vertical space. I'm also disappointed to find out this monitor is NOT HDR compliant. Once the new 4K 144Hz 34 Inch Gsync HDR monitors come out, I'll likely switch and try to sell this one.
Thanks again for all the help! This community rocks.
