Guide to your first bitcoin buy
Interested in learning how to buy Bitcoin? The most popular cryptocurrency is now accepted around the world and has a growing number of applications — but you need to know where to go to purchase and store it. Let’s walk through how to set up a bitcoin account and make your first purchase!

Step 1: Find a good Bitcoin wallet
Specific digital wallets are used to store Bitcoin until you are ready to spend them or exchange them for another currency. Wallets range in terms of features, platforms they can be used on, and security, so it’s important to choose one that works for you.
When you find a wallet that checks off all your important features, download it to the appropriate platform. For beginners, we recommend starting off with a simple wallet that makes transfers easy. These wallets can be downloaded for free, but fees may apply to currency exchanges when moving money to other accounts.
Coinbase wallet comes with a friendly wallet that ties directly into its exchange services and is simple to use, making it one of the most popular American Bitcoin wallets. When you sign up, you get a certain amount of insurance for the Bitcoin you store, and you can go online from any device to check up on your amounts or make a change.

Mycelium is a popular mobile wallet known for being compatible with more advanced tech, like Trezor hardware wallets (for maximum security) and Tor.
Electrum is primarily to be used on desktop computers, and provides you with your own encryption key for security. If you plan on storing a large amount of Bitcoin online and want one of the safer options, it’s worth a look.

Step 2: Choose the right Bitcoin exchange
If you want to know how to buy Bitcoin without a broker, you need an exchange: There are a whole lot of exchanges out there, with varying performance. Some are untrustworthy and others are very limited, so it’s important to pick the right exchange to start with. When comparing exchanges, remember to look at the fees charged for buying Bitcoin and what payment methods are offered. Few exchanges will offer to turn Bitcoin directly into cash for you.

Coinbase is the most obvious suggestion for people buying their first Bitcoin. It’s very simple to use, has a great interface, and shows consistently high quality when it comes to taking care of customers — without pushing fees too high. It’s also available on both desktop and mobile devices. We highly suggest you start here if you’re not sure where to go.

CEX offers even more simplicity for those who are a bit more used to exchanges in general. It gives you immediate exchange rates and basic buy/sell options without any hoops to jump through. However, its payment options are a bit limited.

Bitcoin exchange search is’s own exchange search. Put in your country, and you can take a look at available exchanges, as well as check out the current “featured exchange.” It’s a good option to investigate more choices, but remember to check reviews and history before choosing any particular exchange.

Step 3: Select your payment method
Exchanges accept a variety of payment options based on what they are willing to use. This is sort of a sore point for many exchanges, since some payment methods have been used to scam sellers for a quick buck in the past. Bank account and credit card transfers are typically accepted by most exchanges, with some limitations. Wire transfers are a bit more hit or miss, and PayPal transfers may not be allowed. Coinbase, however, allows for all these payment methods, which is why it is once again an easy recommendation for beginners.

Note that Bitcoin ATMs allow you to exchange Bitcoin in compatible wallets for cash. These ATMs are available in a limited number of cities, but do provide an alternative to withdrawing money using an exchange. Again, most exchanges and online wallets will not deal directly with cash.

Step 4: Buy some
 Bitcoin and store them in your wallet
You will notice that exchanges provide you with information on how many Bitcoin you can buy for specific sums of money. Currently, Bitcoin values have been pushed to very high levels, so you’ll probably be buying a fraction of a Bitcoin—for example, paying $500 for 0.1935 of a bitcoin. That’s where the market is right now, and nothing to worry about as long as you keep an eye on the numbers.

Start small and make your first trade. This will typically store your Bitcoin into an automatically generated account on your exchange. You should then seek out the option to transfer these funds to the address of the Bitcoin wallet you have created. The exchange may charge for this transfer.

Important note: Bitcoin transfers can be a bit sporadic. Unlike other currency trades, when you buy bitcoin funds the transaction needs to be recorded in the blockchain and affirmed. This can take time, especially during busy trading hours. It’s not uncommon for a trade to take an hour or two to complete, so you may not want to immediately leap over to your account and start moving funds around.

Step 5: Start doing something with Bitcoin
If you don’t start spending Bitcoin or exchanging them with other currency, it can be easy to forget about them. So start using your wallet. Find a local shop around town that accepts digital bitcoin payments, or look into compatible online stores. Always read reviews and fine print before making any purchase or exchange with your Bitcoin!

For beginners
Still on cryptocurrency business and talks, Bitcoin as being the shooting face for all altcoins(Alternative cryptocurrency) over the years, the recent surge in the value of Bitcoin as made new Altcoins to emerge making it an avenue for investors to plunge in thier money into and make huge and reasonable profit.

Explanation of Cryptocurrency

Just like we have currencies ranging from Dollars, Pounds, Euro, Naira, Yen and so on, so also do we have cryptocurrencies like the likes of Bitcoin(BTC), Ethereum( ETH), Dogecoin(XDG), Action coin(ACN), Demicoin(DEC), and so on, which has grew in numbers over the years, proving various early expert wrong concerning the future of cryptocurrency, even during the early stage of Bitcoin which was created by an unknown programmer named Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin was said to be a threat back then to the banking industries, which had proven to be wrong.

From Onset, the emergence of cryptocurrency as changed the look of digital money overall, across continents like Asia, America, Africa and so on, while cryptosystem as being recognised and legally backed by some countries, some still sees it as been armful to their economy, which makes this countries to take time in studying and researching the depth and value of the cryptosystem to the overall benefit of their economy. According to an expert "Bitcoin is here to stay"

 what is An Initial Coin Offering(ICO)?

The Initial Coin Offering gold rush – the future of fundraising or just another crypto scam?
If you are searching for the biggest trend in cryptocurrency today, a look at Initial Coin Offering (ICO) might be a good start. The idea to presale coins of a cryptocurrency or token of a blockchain project has evolved in a crazy successful instrument to raise funds for the development of a new application.

What is An Initial Coin Offering?
ICO is the abbreviation of Initial Coin Offering. It means that someone offers investors some units of a new cryptocurrency or crypto-token in exchange against cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum. Since 2013 ICOs are often used to fund the development of new cryptocurrencies. The pre-created token can be easily sold and traded on all cryptocurrency exchanges if there is demand for them.

With the success of Ethereum ICO are more and more used to fund the development of a crypto project by releasing token which is somehow integrated into the project. With this turn, ICO has become a tool that could revolutionize not just currency but the whole financial system. ICO token could become the securities and shares of tomorrow.

Short History of Initial Coin Offering? – ICO
Maybe the first cryptocurrency distributed by an ICO was Ripple. In early 2013 Ripple Labs started to develop the Ripple called payment system and created around 100 billion XRP token. The company sold these token to fund the development of the Ripple platform.

Later in 2013, Mastercoin promised to create a layer on top of Bitcoin to execute smart contracts and tokenize Bitcoin transactions. The developer sold some million Mastercoin token against Bitcoin and received around $1mio.

Several other cryptocurrencies have been funded with ICO, for example, Lisk, which sold its coins for around $5mio in early 2016. Most prominent however is Ethereum. In mid-2014 the Ethereum Foundation sold ETH against 0.0005 Bitcoin each. With this, they receive nearly $20mio, which has become one of the largest crowdfunding ever and serves as the capital base for the development of Ethereum.

As Ethereum itself unleashed the power of smart contracts, it opened the door for a new generation of Initial Coin Offering.

Ethereum – The Initial Coin Offering?- ICO Crowdfunding Machine

One of the easiest application of Ethereum’s smart contract system is to create a simple token which can be transacted on the Ethereum blockchain instead of Ether. This kind of contract was standardized with ERC#20. It made Ethereum host of such a wide scope of ICO that you can safely say that Ethereum found its Killer App as a distributed platform for crowdfunding and fundraising.

The most prominent demonstration of the potential of Ethereum’s smart contracts has been The DAO. The distributed investment company was fuelled with Ether worth $100m. The investors received in exchange against Ether Dao Token which had their own market price and enabled the holder to participate in the governance of the DAO. After it was hacked, the DAO however failed.

The concept of funding projects with a token on Ethereum became the blueprint for a new and highly successful generation of crowdfunding projects. If you already tried out, you know that investing in token on top of Ethereum is charmingly easy: You transfer ETH, paste the contract in your wallet – and, tata: The token appear in your account and you are free to transfer them as you want.

Examples for successful Initial coin offering on Ethereum are:

Singular DTV
First Blood
Digix DAO.
There are dozens of ICO every month which explore new and creative ways to connect the application with the token and to leverage smart contracts to add more features to these tokens.

The potential of this trend is immense. ICO enables every individual and every company to easily release freely tradable tokens to raise funds. It could be used to completely reconstruct the financial system of shares, securities and so on. It decentralized not just money, but stock creation and trade.

If you want to assess Ethereum’s market capitalization you should not only look at the market cap of Ether itself but also on the value of the token, which adds something like $300 Million to Ethereum’s $4 Billion market cap.

The legal state of ICO is mostly undefined. Ideally, the token is sold not as a financial asset but as a digital good like many other things. This is why ICO is often called “crowd sale”. In this case, in the most jurisdiction, the funding with an ICO is not regulated, which makes it extremely easy and paperless, given a lawyer experienced with the issue is on board.

However, some jurisdictions seem to be aware of ICO and tend to regulate them similar to the sale of shares and securities. The spectacular implosion of the DAO did a good job in kindle regulators attention. So while ICO currently mostly happen in a gray area, in the future they most likely will be regulated. This could bear some financial and legal risks for investors. Also, the cost and effort to comply with regulation could reduce the advantages of ICO compared with traditional means of funding.

Profit and Loss
Many ICO has been a lucky choice for investors. ETH, for example, was sold at 0.0005 Bitcoin and is worth today 0,05 BTC. Profit: 10,000 percent. Augur token (REP) were sold for around 0,005 each and are now traded at 0,01. The gain in value of 100 to 500 percent in Bitcoin is common for successful ICO.

On the other side, many ICO ends with losses. Cryptocurrencies like Lisk, IOTA-token or Omni did not hold the value in Bitcoin the token has been assessed at the ICO (or struggle to keep it). Often ICO is even used by scammers and semi-scammers: Build a glossy website, write some blocks of bullshit bingo, promise the greatest project/cryptocurrency ever, and be happy if you receive just 50 or 100 Bitcoin. Besides the large and successful ICO, like Lisk, Melonpost, Augur or Iconomi, many small and shady ICO did collect funds and delivered nothing at all.

"The ICO market is currently still completely unregulated. Everybody should be aware, that this does imply not only large profits for investors, but also large losses."

Not every ICO is worth your money. Some just throw a couple of keywords in the air, something with blockchains, distributed platforms, smart contracts and so on, without having a real business plan or just the skills to realize the project. But some are really interesting. Good ICOs have presented months ahead, and the investment community looks forward to participating in it.

Resources to help yourself

It is not possible to list every ICO in this article. It is also not possible to assess every described ICO. To make investment decisions, you need to make your own mind. The following resources can help you to find a lot of information about past, current and future ICO:

Social smoking: Will an occasional cigarette damage your health? By Cathy Johnson and Amy Thanh Ai Tong.

It's holiday season, so many of us are partying a bit more than usual.

This means more food, more booze, more late nights and, for some, it might involve smoking the odd cigarette.

But how bad is it to smoke occasionally?

The idea that low-level smoking doesn't do you any harm is a dangerous myth, Professor David Currow of the Cancer Institute NSW said.

Social smokers often don't think of themselves as smokers, he said, so they don't believe health warnings about smoking apply to them.

But the bottom line is every cigarette exposes your body to harmful chemicals.

"There's no safe level of smoking. What's more, the negative health effects add up across your life," he said.

What type of smoker are you?

Groups of low-level or occasional smokers include:

The social smoker: Tends to only smoke in social settings, like at the pub or when out with friends.

The binge smoker: Smokes a lot more at certain times than others, such as at the weekend.

The low-level smoker: Only smokes a few cigarettes a day or just smokes occasionally.

Source: Cancer Institute NSW's ICanQuit website

Simon Chapman, Emeritus Professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney said: "Smoking a small number of cigarettes, say less than four a day or once a week does elevate your risk [of health problems].

"Not to the [same] extent as if you were smoking 30 cigarettes a day. But compared to someone who doesn't smoke, anyone smoking four cigarettes a day or even less is kidding themselves they're not running any extra risk."

Immediate effects
As soon as you take a drag from a cigarette, there are changes in your body, including:

You may feel more relaxed, but your blood pressure and heart rate start to rise.
Your heart begins to pump differently, and the blood flow to the capillaries decreases.
Levels of a poisonous gas called carbon monoxide, increase in your bloodstream. This means less oxygen reaches the brain, muscles and other organs.
Tiny finger-like cilia which keep your airways clear of phlegm and debris are 'stunned' by chemicals in the smoke so don't do their job as well.

Less smoking, less cancer?
Even if you smoke only occasionally, you are still exposed to long-term risks.

As well as lung cancer, there are at least 13 other cancers linked with smoking.

Smoking damages DNA in cells, including in key genes that protect you against cancer.

It's true that the more you smoke, the more DNA damage or mutations you're going to create.

"But it's not your cumulative total of 40,000 mutations that guarantees you cancer. It's that you've got the right combination of mutations," Professor Curnow said.

"So you may smoke less than the person next door to you, but you might just happen to hit the genes that mean you're going to get lung cancer or any of a whole range of other cancers."

Just one to four cigarettes a day almost triples your risk of dying from lung cancer.

And social smoking is particularly bad for your heart, as bad as regular smoking, it seems.

Studies have shown light and intermittent smokers have nearly the same risk of heart disease as people who smoke daily, Professor Currow said.

Very fine blood vessels that are vital to keeping your heart healthy are damaged by smoking, he says. Harm to the same tiny blood vessels also contributes to erectile dysfunction in males.

"We know these blood vessels are vulnerable to damage at exposure to an incredibly low numbers of cigarettes," he said.

An occasional cigarette is connected to a host of other illnesses too: cataracts, reduced fertility, an increased risk of an ectopic pregnancy [where the pregnancy develops outside the uterus] and weak bones, a review of several studies showed.

Slippery slope
The direct health effects are only part of the problem with social smoking though.

Because smoking is highly addictive, smoking "a little" can all too easily turn into smoking more.

Non-daily smokers who smoke over three packs a month are just as likely to still be smoking after 14 years as daily smokers, Professor Currow said.

He notes that many social smokers binge smoke when they do smoke, rather than just having a cigarette or two.

"At present we have no way of knowing how readily a person will become addicted to nicotine until after the event, when they have become addicted," he said.

"Nicotine is one of the most addictive substances known to mankind, so experimenting in that space is not smart."

He believes the only safe strategy is not to smoke at all.
Professor Chapman agrees.

"Ninety per cent of smokers regret that they ever started. The number who say, 'Yes, I love smoking. I know the risks and I don't want to stop,' is probably less than 1 in 10," he said.

Although smoking rates have been on a downward trend, it is unclear whether the rate of social smokers in Australia is changing.

The National Drug Strategy Household Survey (2016) showed that of Australians over the age of 14, 12.2 per cent smoked daily, 1 per cent smoked weekly and another 1 per cent smoked less than weekly.

The shisha cafe trend

One form of social smoking that's a relatively recent trend is when people gather to smoke tobacco in shishas or water pipes, also known as hookah pipes.

The practice, which arose in some Arabic countries, took off in Australia several years ago, Professor Currow said.

There are now shisha cafes and hookah lounges where people smoke together, sometimes sharing the same shisha, he said.

Sometimes the smoke is flavoured by being passed through a piece of fruit like a mango or pineapple.

"People think that because the smoke is cooled or flavoured, it's harmless," he said.

"But an hour smoking socially with a shisha is equivalent to 50 or 100 cigarettes. You can get very major exposure over a short space of time."

Kicking the habit
The good news is that as soon as we stop smoking, your body starts recovering.

Within 12 hours of your last cigarette, blood carbon monoxide levels are much lower and after a year, the risk of coronary heart disease will be half of what it once was as a smoker.

If you quit before the age of 35, your life expectancy will be much the same as someone who has never smoked.

If you're a social smoker wanting to quit, it can help to ask friends to discourage you from smoking in social situations.

Cutting down on alcohol can also help some social smokers who tend to smoke more when they drink.

And you might think about the people around you who have to breathe in the smoke you exhale in social situations. Some research has suggested this is a stronger motivator for social smokers to quit than education about health impacts on yourself.

"Social smokers say, 'I'm not addicted'. If that's really the case, walk away from it," Professor Currow said.

If you find you have trouble walking away from it, help is available.

You can find resources to help you quit on the Australian Government's Quitnow website.
