Frequently Asked Questions
Is Bitcoin safe?
Absolutely. All transactions are digitally signed, then verified before being added to the blockchain.
The whole point of the blockchain is to record all transactions, but in a decentralised way.
All Bitcoin transactions are therefore recorded in the blockchain, and there are countless copies of the blockchain so the records are always available.

How can I use Bitcoin safely?
Follow a common-sense approach – never share your Private key, and only do transactions where you can trust the other party.
Your Private Key is similar to your credit card PIN number, therefore always keep it secure and never allow anyone else to have access to it.
