Today, bitcoin is the largest and most well-known digital currency. Since its creation in 2009, it has become the preferred payment method for millions of online consumers. You can now book flights, buy web domains, pay for computer products and purchase household goods using bitcoin. As the list of companies who accept cryptocurrencies continues to grow, we have ensured that your SolidTrust Pay e-wallet is fully compatible with bitcoin. This guide will explain how to easily buy bitcoin, exchange it to USD, withdraw it to your bank account and accept it as a merchant.
