Frequently Asked Questions

Bitvavo makes Bitcoin as easy as possible. Answers to a few the most common questions will serve as a kickstart in the world of digital assets.

What is Bitcoin? Bitcoin (BTC) is the first decentralized digital currency in history. Just after the financial crisis in 2008, the white paper "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System" was published under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto.

Nakamoto invented Bitcoin in response to the need for an electronic payment system based on the revolutionary blockchain technology, which is used to record and control transactions, instead of trust. This payment system makes it possible for two parties to perform transactions directly with each other without the intervention of a third party such as a bank.
How does Bitcoin work? The technology behind Bitcoin is the Blockchain. The Bitcoin blockchain is a transparent digital ledger in which all Bitcoin transactions are permanently stored. The Bitcoin blockchain uses Proof-of-Work (PoW) as a consensus mechanism. The computing power of a computer (also known as miner) is used to process transactions and to secure the network. As compensation for the processing of transactions and for securing the network, miners receive Bitcoin.

How to store Bitcoin? You need a wallet in order to store and use Bitcoin. There are several options for saving and using Bitcoin.

Hosted Wallet
Hosted wallets are wallets where the access keys to your Bitcoin are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password, and possibly other advanced security methods. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Bitcoin online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform. Click here for more information about how Bitvavo saves your digital assets as securely as possible.

Software wallet
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or any other desired device in order to use and manage your Bitcoin. By using a software wallet, you have full control over your "private keys" (and therefore your Bitcoin), so you are not dependent on third parties such as Bitvavo. The software wallet simplifies the process of accessing your Bitcoin. The risk is that if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Bitcoin) can be stolen.

Hardware wallet
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Bitcoin offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Bitcoin, because the private keys are stored on a seperate, offline, device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In that respect, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Bitcoin are stored.

You can use a hosted wallet, as offered by Bitvavo, to easily store, send and receive Bitcoin. However, you are, just like at a bank, dependent on a third party (Bitvavo) for storing your Bitcoin.

One of the advantages of Bitcoin is that you can send, receive and store your own digital assets without the relying on third parties. You do this by sending your Bitcoin, from your Bitvavo wallet, to your own software or hardware wallet.
