Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bitcoin/Crypto?

Bitcoin/Crypto is a digital currency that functions through cryptography. This allows users to create and transfer funds to others without the need for a central authority like a bank or government. It operates on a decentralized network called the “blockchain,” which records all transactions made using Bitcoin in a public ledger.

Cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are a form of digital currency that uses encryption techniques to regulate the generation of units and verify the transfer of funds. They function independently of traditional banking systems and are often used as an alternative to fiat currencies. Examples of cryptocurrencies include Ethereum, Litecoin and Tether.

What is a blockchain?

A blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger of transactions. It is not owned or controlled by any one individual or organization. Instead, it is maintained by a network of computers connected to each other and work together to validate and record transactions in a secure and transparent manner.

These transactions are grouped together into blocks, which are then encrypted and linked to each other in a chain-like structure. This creates a tamper-proof and transparent record of all the transactions that have taken place on the network, which can be verified by anyone with access to the blockchain.

Blockchain technology is most commonly associated with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, but it has many other potential applications beyond financial transactions, such as supply chain management, voting systems, and more.

What are the steps to using Crypto?

You can purchase Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies using your exchange wallet and then transfer them to your account with Betcris. Your Bitcoin or Crypto will be converted and deposited into your Betcris account using the currency format you have selected.

When a withdrawal is requested, we send you Bitcoin/Crypto, which can then be converted into real money using your exchange wallet. You can transfer these funds to your bank account or withdraw them as cash from a nearby Bitcoin ATM if available in your area/country.

If you want to use the crypto payment method, consider the following:

  1. Setting up a Crypto Exchange wallet: you can set up a crypto exchange account by providing your basic details like name, email address, and password.
  2. Verify Your wallet: to buy or sell crypto, you need to verify your account by providing additional personal information and uploading a government-issued ID. Some exchanges require you to provide more information like proof of residence, earnings, and more.
  3. Adding funds to the account: after verifying your account, you can add funds to it. You may add these funds through a credit card, Paypal, Bank transfer, bank wire, cryptocurrency ATM and Peer-to-Peer. Follow the instructions to add funds to your exchange account. After your funds have cleared, then you can buy cryptocurrency.
  4. Send Crypto: you can send cryptocurrency to someone else’s exchange wallet using their wallet address. Make sure to verify the transaction fee (if applicable), which may be listed as a flat fee or a percentage of the total transaction amount. Keep in mind that higher fees often result in faster transaction confirmation times, while lower fees can take longer to confirm.
  5. Receive Crypto: you can also receive crypto in your exchange account or a personal crypto wallet. To do this, you need to get your public address from the exchange and provide it to the sender.
  6. Exchange Crypto to Bank Account or cash: to cash out your cryptocurrency profits, you need to sell your crypto on the exchange. After that, you can transfer the funds to your linked bank account. However, you may need to pay transaction fees and other charges while exchanging crypto to a bank account.

What are the benefits of using Bitcoin/Crypto?

Using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has different benefits, including:

  1. Decentralized: as a decentralized currency, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are not controlled by any central authority or government, making them an excellent choice for people who want to try out new transaction methods.
  2. Low Transaction Fees: unlike traditional payment methods (like bank transfers and credit cards), Bitcoin/Crypto transactions are processed with low fees.
  3. Security: Bitcoin/Crypto transactions are secured with cryptographic algorithms, making it practically impossible to counterfeit or double-spend it. This has made Bitcoin/Crypto a highly secure payment method.
  4. Global Availability: Bitcoin/Crypto can be used to transfer money internationally to anyone, anywhere in the world.
  5. Transparency: all Bitcoin/Crypto transactions are recorded on a public ledger called the
    “blockchain,” which makes it possible to track all the transactions on the network.
  6. Anonymity: Bitcoin/Crypto transactions are anonymous. The user’s personal information is not linked to the transaction. However, it is important to note that the blockchain itself is not completely anonymous.
  7. Accessibility: anyone can buy and use Bitcoin/Crypto if they have an internet connection. This means that Bitcoin/Crypto can be used by anyone regardless of their location, age, or financial situation.

What is an exchange wallet?

A crypto exchange wallet is a digital wallet that is used to store and manage various cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and others. It is usually provided by a cryptocurrency exchange platform, which allows users to buy, sell, and exchange cryptocurrencies.

The wallet stores the private keys that are used to access the cryptocurrencies, and users can access their wallet through the exchange’s website or mobile app. Crypto exchange wallets offer a convenient way for users to manage their digital assets in one place, it is important to choose a reputable exchange with strong security measures to minimize the risks.

What is a Bitcoin/Crypto address?

A crypto address, also known as a digital wallet address or public key address, is a string of letters and numbers that serves as an identifier for a particular cryptocurrency wallet. The address is used to send and receive cryptocurrency transactions between users on a blockchain network.

Public addresses are used to receive cryptocurrency transactions, and they can be easily shared with anyone. A private address (private key address), on the other hand, is used to send cryptocurrency transactions and must be kept private and secure.

Public and private crypto keys can be compared to a box with two locks: a public lock and a private lock. The public lock, similar to a public crypto key, is open for everyone to see and use. It can be shared with others to lock the box. However, only the owner with the private key (representing the private crypto key) can open and access the contents of the box.

Just as the private lock can only be opened by its corresponding key, the private key is necessary to decrypt encrypted data. This analogy demonstrates how public and private crypto keys work together to provide security, ensuring that only the intended recipient can access encrypted information.

What are Stablecoins?

Stablecoins, like Tether (USDT), are a type of cryptocurrency that is designed to maintain a stable value or price. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, which can be highly volatile, stablecoins are engineered to provide price stability by pegging their value to a fiat currency, such as the US dollar, or a physical asset, such as gold.

Stablecoins can provide several benefits. They offer a hedge against the volatility of other cryptocurrencies and provide a stable unit of account that can be used for transactions. They also eliminate the need for intermediaries (for example, banks) to facilitate cross-border payments, making them a more efficient and cost-effective solution for international transactions.

Overall, stablecoins are becoming increasingly popular in the cryptocurrency space and are seen as a promising solution for the adoption of cryptocurrencies in mainstream finance and commerce.

What is the safest crypto wallet?

The safest crypto wallet is a cold storage wallet, which means a wallet that is not connected to the internet and keeps your private keys offline. It is important to do thorough research and make sure you understand the features and security measures of a wallet before choosing one to store your cryptocurrency.
