The World Of Currency IS Changing

The world is already heading towards a cashless society. China is already a digital currency society. During this pandemic, we experienced the effects of a coin shortage. Grocery stores did not have coins, there was a big emphasis on “card only” transactions. Cashless by Google definition, is characterized by the exchanged funds of cheque, debit or credit card, or electronic methods, rather than the use of cash.

A debit card can be obtained with a checking account from a financial institution such as a bank or from a fintech company such as Stash or Cash App. Accounts with the bank or fintech company source the funds of the holder, allowing the holder to transfer money electronically from their accounts when making a purchase.

2. Credit Card, also most widely used today, by Google definition, a credit is a small plastic card issued by a bank, business, etc., allowing the holder to purchase goods or services on credit.

A credit card is based on credit worthiness. Approval of a credit card can be where you are given credit by the issuing credit card company or where you fund the credit card limit with your funds. This type of credit is called a secured credit card and is usually given to those whose credit is not that good and need to rebuild their credit.

Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission was created in 1974 with the enactment of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission Act.

Binary Options Brokers Who Use Arbitrage Services

There are a lot of binary options brokers who offer arbitrage services that allow you to trade binary options. Some of these arbitrage services are located in countries outside of the United States of America. Some U.S. residents opt to trade using the arbitrage services that are in these countries, however, if you live in the United States of America your binary options broker should be registered in the United States of America. You want to trade legally and ethically. You don’t want to be intertwined with, caught up in, or connected to an off shore broker that could possibly get you in legal trouble because they aren’t following U.S. Regulations and requirements and indirectly you, whether you are aware of it or not, would not be following U.S. Regulations and requirements.

You Could Lose All Of Your Money With An Off Shore Broker

Another reason why you want to use a U.S. based broker is, you could lose all of your money. Without regulation to protect you and your funds you could lose everything you invested and gain while trading with an off shore broker. You want to be at ease while trading and know that your investments are regulated and you want to profit.

U.S. Binary Options Brokers

You can check whether a broker is registered with the (CFTC) in the United states BEFORE you trade. You can actually check registration and backgrounds before you trade. This can be done by visiting the NFA BASIC database to check. You can get there directly from a webpage on the CFTC’s website here.

The Commodity Exchange Act requires certain firms and individuals to be registered with the (CFTC). Registration and examination of intermediaries is conducted on behalf of the (CFTC) by the National Futures Association (NFA) under the supervision of the (CFTC).

What Is Bitcoin?

What Is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a form of buy, sell, payment and exchange.

It is not money. However, it can be used like money. In the United States it is not a currency. The United States government controls what is currency in the United States. Bitcoin is property. You can own it, you can buy it, you can sell it, you can use it to exchange for goods and services, you can build a hedge against the U.S. dollar with it. However, it is not money. It is not apart of the currency issued by the United States government.

Bitcoin is a type of digital currency in which a record of transactions is maintained and new units of currency are generated by the computational solution of mathematical problems, and which operates independently of a central bank. (Google)

Bitcoin was created by a person. The name most associated with the person who created it is Satoshi Nakamoto. There is only a limited amount of Bitcoin available worldwide. Once that limit is reached no more exists.

It can be used like money. It is deregulated. It is not regulated by banks or the government. It is digital. It is also known as Cryptocurrency.

Cryptocurrency is “a digital currency in which transactions are verified and records maintained by a decentralized system using cryptography, rather than by a centralized authority.” (Google)

Bitcoin can be bought with U.S. Dollars or whatever your currency is in your country and it can be used to buy, exchange and pay for things that you would buy with regular fiat money. You can also sell Bitcoin for U.S. dollars. It is legit. There are even ATM’s for it. In the U.S., you do have to report your buys and sells (your transactions) to the IRS.

Bitcoin is an investment and is like a hedge against the U.S. Dollar. It can be comparable to gold. In the U.S., if the U.S. dollar fails, then Bitcoin and other hard assets like gold come into play and hedge against it. You would be able to still buy, sell, exchange, make payments because of the value, accessibility, and ability of Bitcoin. People are building their portfolios and investing in it and obtaining it now. Companies and businesses are implementing it in their form of payment options, where the consumer can pay with/in Bitcoin. PayPal most recently, implemented the ability of its users to buy, sell, and hold Bitcoin. National retailers are now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment. Games offer rewards in Bitcoin and Lolli offers rewards when using their service when you shop at top stores.

To learn more about Bitcoin and earn Bitcoin while you learn about Bitcoin visit Coinbase. Coinbase also provides a digital wallet for Bitcoin users which is also needed to store Bitcoin. For current and more information on digital assets and blockchain technology visit Coindesk.
