Pay With Bitcoin
We are proud to offer Bitcoin as a payment method at CenterfireGuns. So what is Bitcoin? Put simply, it's a digital currency in which transactions can be performed without the need for a central bank and without all the bank fees and regulations that go along with it. All you need is a digital wallet and some Bitcoins and you are set. Sound complicated? It's actually not. Watch the following video to learn a little more and then read on to find out how to use Bitcoin at CenterfireGuns.
How do I use Bitcoin to pay for my order on CenterfireGuns?
Easy. Shop our store as you normally would and during checkout, you will be given the option to pay with Bitcoin. Once you complete checkout, you'll be shown a page that will allow you pay with Bitcoin using your digital wallet. But we'll get to that in a minute, first lets go over the basics to buy and use Bitcoin.
1. You'll need a Digital Wallet
Before you can purchase or use Bitcoins, you'll need a Digital Wallet to "hold" your Bitcoins in. A Bitcoin Digital Wallet stores your Bitcoin balance and allows you to transact with other users online and offline. All wallets can communicate with each other similar to emails, so you can send and receive Bitcoins to anyone regardless of the type of wallet they use.
2. You'll need to mine or buy some Bitcoins
You can get Bitcoins one of three ways: you can "mine" for them; you can buy them; or someone can give you one. If you're the technical type, you can take a shot at mining bitcoins, but here we're going to keep with the simpler way, which is to buy them at a Bitcoin Exchange. Bitcoins are virtual currency, you can't go to the bank and walk out with a Bitcoin. Instead, Bitcoin Exchanges handle the buying and selling of Bitcoins. Just like gold, Bitcoins may rise or fall in value based on market demand. And just like gold, you can buy all or part of a Bitcoin. The most popular exchange is Coinbase.com, but there are many others, a list of which you can find on the Bitcoin website.
