What Is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a decentralized currency that operates without a central authority or registered office using blockchain technology. Even though you might have seen pictures of coins representing the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, it doesn’t exist physically in reality. All translations are registered in a digital ledger that is consensually shared and synchronized across all users.

Faster payments that are also more transparent are gaining recognition, so the list of companies accepting Bitcoin becomes longer each year. But trading activity and personal transfers still account for the majority of the transaction volume.

FAQ

Is Bitcoin Legal in the UK?

Yes, Bitcoin payments, whether for commercial or personal purposes, are legal. But it’s considered property rather than a legal tender like GBP.

FCA bans money laundering (which applies to any currency) and crypto trading and investment advice. Any service that facilitates speculative activity must disclose all the risks involved and explain that traders might lose money.

Can Foreigners Buy Bitcoin in the UK?

Yes, there are no geographic limitations for crypto funds. Your account and all associated transactions are not tied to UK banks or local authorities. Everything takes place on the blockchain and operates internationally. 

What Determines the Price of Bitcoin?

In traditional finance and economics, there might be a central authority setting the monetary policy. But the Bitcoin price changes based on the most influential force in the free market - supply and demand. 

Other important factors include the cost of mining, volume of investments, availability on exchanges, competition, and regulation. 

Can I Buy Less Than 1 Bitcoin?

Of course! You don’t need to buy a whole Bitcoin to own one. With one BTC worth over £40,000, very few people can afford to buy multiple bitcoins. The minimum purchase you can make with 0.0001 BTC, which is slightly over £4. So, if you’re planning to make a BTC transaction, you can just buy a fraction of it.

What Are the Taxes to Buy Bitcoin?

HM Revenue and Customs, regulating all financial institutions in the UK, confirmed that most individual investors are subject to Capital Gains Tax (CGT). This includes not only profits but also losses. 

Pay attention to the word “investors” - you are only taxed if you receive or intend to receive rewards from crypto. If you just buy and transfer it to another party, there is no tax.

Where Can I Store Bitcoin?

The most popular place to store BTC is an online wallet. Let’s say you want to invest in BTC, i.e., buy low and sell at a higher price later. If you’re going to hold crypto in the long term, store in on a reputable, robust service with no recent leaks or system failures. If you’re engaged in short-term buying and selling, make sure to do it through Changelly Pro.

Who Accepts Bitcoin in the UK?

Lucky for crypto holders, many retailers accept Bitcoin payments, including Apple, Amazon, Tesla, and Expedia. At this point, BTC has turned into a convenient alternative to PayPal and other methods. And it’s not only online users who can enjoy it - you can also spend BTC offline. Stores like Phillipp Plein, Whole Foods, Microsoft, and Lush accept crypto at their physical locations.

How to Cash Out Bitcoin in the UK?

If you want to turn your digital coins into physical pounds, dollars, or another fiat currency, there are special Bitcoin ATMs. However, these machines are still new and rare, so the best thing is to do it through Changelly. 

The process will involve three simple steps: sell BTC for fiat, receive fiat to your bank card, and cash out through a usual ATM. You can also exchange other cryptocurrencies for BTC and then to fiat, whatever option works for you.
