How to buy bitcoin in Nigeria


Bitcoin presents an electronic user payment tool that is identical to digital wallets and bank accounts. BTC is the main unit for financial operations on the network. Digital money, unlike usual money, does not depend on the economy of countries or on the Central bank. Users make all operations to issue new money, to process payments and to make new accounts.

The first steps in the development of the system appeared in 2008 from the creator Satoshi Nakato and developer Hal Finney, and on January 3, 2009 the official launch of the system took place. Bitcoin has become a protest against traditional money and pegging the finance of one country. The idea of ​​independent money was supported by a narrow community, but as the number of users and the value of BTCUSD grew, the system began to gain popularity.
