- FAQ about Bitcoin and Bitboat
Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money.
By using the peer-to-peer technology, Bitcoin allows to operate without the need of a central authority or bank: all transactions and Bitcoin dispatches are collectively managed by the network. Being open-source, Bitcoin is a public project: no one owns Bitcoin and everyone can take part in the project. Thank to its unique elements, Bitcoin allows intresting uses that allowed by no other payment method.
Bitboat is a service that allows you buying cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, in an easy, fast and safe way.
The Bitcoin address identifies your Bitcoin wallet (it has the same role as the IBAN for your bank account or the email address for your email). It is created by your wallet (which can be a software on your computer or a website) and it is needed to deposit Bitcoin on your wallet. An example of Bitcoin address is 1NPFRDJuEdyqEn2nmLNaWMfojNksFjbL4S.
An easy and fast way to obtain a Bitcoin address is registering on blockchain.info.
The exchange rate is determined by our internal system and it is updated every minute.

The payment must be done within one hour since the payment information are given. If the payment will be done after this period of time, the order would not be sent automatically. If this happens you have to contact us to receive your Bitcoin.
