everybody is talking about how lucrative bitcoins are these days and i keep wondering if the currency is just another gambling material like other currencies in Forex trading.

I am a happy Bitcoin user. It is the BEST alternative to PayPal. PayPal is not available in other countries so the best alternative for them is Payza and Bitcoin. Payza has a withdraw to Bitcoin option.

@shynu44 I've been using Bitcoin since January 2015 and I only use Blockchain.info, WirexApp.com and our local Bitcoin company. They are only like PayPal/Payza. Most scams are those investment sites who promise to give _____% INTERESTS.

Bitcoins are worth so much today. A bitcoin is more than USD1500 and hard to believe

It's not only a virtual currency but an online "payment processor" at the same time. Sending funds thru Bitcoin wallets is a lot CHEAPER & FASTER than PayPal, Bank Wires and other MONEY TRANSFERS WORLDWIDE.

@shynu44 some countries do not support CryptoCurrency so if your country does not support it do not use Bitcoin then. My country supports CryptoCurrency so I have no problem using it as it is LEGAL here. Truth is it is more secure than PayPal. We cannot cashout Bitcoin without completing SELFIE VERIFICATION. Who can copy my face? LOL! People who talk negative about Bitcoin are those who have NO EXPERIENCE using CryptoCurrency.
