How to buy bitcoin in Singapore

Singapore
Bitcoin

Bitcoin is digital money. Physically, this currency does not exist, there are only special registers that keep records of how many bitcoins someone has and who transfers them where. These journals are called blockchains. This is similar to how non-cash payments are arranged in banks: when you pay with a card in a store, you also do not transfer any physical money or gold to anyone. It's just that your operation is registered somewhere in the bank register. Bitcoins differ from ordinary currencies in that registers are not stored centrally in banks and payment systems, but simultaneously on all computers that are occupied with bitcoins. Anyone can watch all transactions with all bitcoins in history. In our guide, we will tell you how to buy bitcoin in Singapore.
