Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money.

比特币是一个创新的支付网络,一种新的货币。


1. What is Bitcoin?(比特币是什么?)

Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

    • Fast peer-to-peer transactions
    • Worldwide payments
    • Low processing fees

比特币基于P2P技术运作,无需中央管理机构或银行;交易管理和比特币发行由比特币网络统一进行。比特币是开源的;其设计是公开的,任何人都无法拥有或控制比特币网络,人人都可参与其中。基于其种种独有的特性,比特币使之前任何支付系统都无法实现的激动人心的用途成为可能。

    • 快速的端对端交易
    • 横跨全球的支付
    • 低手续费

2. Why Use Bitcoin?(为什么使用比特币?)

Bitcoin is the safest way to store value and also is the easiest way to transact at a very low cost.

比特币是最安全的价值存储方式,也是最简单、低成本的货币兑换方式。

(1) Bitcoin is decentralised.(比特币是去中心化的。)

One of the most important key features of bitcoin is that it is decentralised and is run on a distributed network of independent computers across the globe. As such, it does not have a single point of failure. It is not controlled by any single party and no one can shut it down. This makes the bitcoin network highly robust and resilient against hacks and security threats.

比特币最重要的关键特征之一是它是去中心化的,在由全球独立的计算机构成的分布式网络上运行。因此,它没有单一的故障点。它不受任何一方的控制,也没有人能关闭它。这使得比特币网络具有高度的健壮性和抵御黑客攻击和安全威胁的弹性。

(2) Bitcoin is deflationary.(比特币是通货紧缩的。)

Bitcoin is designed with a finite total supply with a consistent predictable diminishing supply. Unlike fiat currencies which can be inflationary due to over-printing that dilutes the money supply, bitcoin is deflationary by nature. As bitcoin supply diminishes and demand for it grows as we have witnessed in the last decade, its value will continue to grow in tandem over the long term. This makes bitcoin suitable as a store of value.

比特币的总供应量有限,供应量不断减少。与法定货币不同的是,比特币本质上是通货紧缩的,法定货币可能会因过度印刷而导致通货膨胀,从而稀释货币供应。正如我们在过去十年中看到的那样,随着比特币供应的减少和需求的增长,其价值将在长期内继续同步增长。这使得比特币适合作为价值存储。

(3) Bitcoin provides freedom.(比特币是“自由货币”。)

Bitcoin provides freedom and strengthens social justice in many ways. It is free of banking restrictions and anyone can buy and use bitcoin, including those who are not eligible to open a bank account. This allows the 2 billion unbanked adult population of the world the ability to participate in international commerce and trade. Anyone with a smartphone can immediately start to use bitcoin. There’s no need to sign up, swipe your card, type a PIN, or sign anything. It can be sent in any quantity to anyone anywhere in the world, much like how you would send an email.

比特币在许多方面提供了自由并加强了社会正义。它不受银行限制,任何人都可以购买和使用比特币,包括那些没有资格开立银行账户的人。这使世界上20亿没有银行账户的成年人口有能力参与国际商业和贸易。任何拥有智能手机的人都可以立即开始使用比特币。无需注册, 无需刷卡, 无需输入密码,无需签字。它可以以任何数量发送给世界任何地方的任何人,就像你发送电子邮件一样。

(4) Bitcoin provides safety.(比特币提供安全保障。)

Bitcoin is very secure. Bitcoin relies on high-level cryptography based on the SHA-256 for a high level of security to maintain its function in the real world. Citizens under an authoritarian government do not have to worry about the government stealing or freezing their bitcoin, nor do they have to rely on inept failing governments to protect their property. No one can take control of it, or shut it down, or change it to suit their own purposes, because bitcoin is a decentralized system. For merchants, payments made in bitcoin are reliable and trustworthy as there are no counterfeit bitcoin or credit card fraud to deal with. A customer simply either has a bitcoin or he doesn’t.

比特币非常安全。比特币依靠基于SHA-256的高级加密技术实现高水平的安全性,以在现实世界中保持其功能。威权政府统治下的公民不必担心政府偷走或冻结他们的比特币,也不必依赖失败无能的政府来保护他们的财产。没有人能够控制它,或者关闭它,或者改变它以适应自己的目的,因为比特币是一个去中心化的系统。对于商家来说,用比特币支付是可靠和值得信赖的,因为没有伪造的比特币或信用卡欺诈需要处理。客户要么有比特币,要么没有。


3. Buy and Sell Bitcoin(买卖比特币)

Bitcoin may be purchased from a person (a stranger or friend), via a Bitcoin ATM (much like a bank ATM), or via an exchange platform. We will recommend exchanges as they are the most common way for people to buy bitcoin, and in most cases, safer for someone new to bitcoin.

比特币可以从一个人(陌生人或朋友)、通过比特币ATM(很像银行ATM)或通过交易平台购买。我们将推荐交易所,因为它们是人们购买比特币最常见的方式,在大多数情况下,对比特币新手来说更安全。
