Bitcoin is anti-inflationary, and has a set amount of bitcoins in circulation (25 new coins are added into circulation every 10 minutes), and a capped maximum amount (21 million in total). This forces the Bitcoin value to increase based on standard supply and demand economic ideology, or “sound money” principles. As more people enter the Bitcoin ecosystem, Bitcoin value per unit increases over time, a very foreign concept to anyone brought up to use a fiat (Paper) currency as they NEVER rise in value.
Bitcoins are sent easily through the Internet, without needing to trust any third party.
The supply of bitcoins is regulated by software and the agreement of users of the system and cannot be manipulated by any government, bank, organisator or individual.
Transactions, are irreversible by design.
Fast. Funds received, are available for spending within minutes.
