The Bitcoin is in the news when the price skips high tops or goes deeper. But expectations about the blockchain technology behind the digital currency are high. Are bitcoins also interesting as wages, fees or extralegal benefits? The answer is YES. You can pay your session, drink or pay your wages in Bitcoin. There is even a Bitcoin ATM available and most of the websites are actively doing business in Bitcoins.

Origin
The price of the Bitcoin recently fell back, but in the long term it is on the rise. The Bitcoin even approached the value of gold a while ago. The first transaction, in 2011, was one of 10,000 bitcoins, for a piece of pizza. That pizza is now worth a small 8 million euros. Why? Worldwide the number of users is increasing and the total number of bitcoins can never exceed 21 million, creating a built-in scarcity.

Where does the Bitcoin come from? Actually bitcoins do not even exist, only traces of transactions between accounts (bitcoin addresses). This is possible thanks to blockchain technology: a loose, worldwide branch network of computers that arrange and control the transactions, managed by 'miners' who are rewarded with bitcoins. As a result, you can transfer bitcoins anywhere in the world at lightning speed, (in principle) safely and with minimal transaction costs. Companies find that interesting.
