I went to Low Yat Plaza last Saturday, and I had asked whether I can find a Bitcoin in Malaysia. I understand this bitcoin thing is still unclear whether it is a hoax or a commodity. Bitcoin apparently is already accepted a mode of payment in Canada, US and China.
Quote from Wikipedia
Bitcoins are increasingly used as payment for legitimate products and services, and merchants have an incentive to accept the currency because transaction fees are lower than the 2 to 3% typically imposed by credit card processors. Notable vendors include OkCupid, Reddit, WordPress, and Chinese Internet giant Baidu.
Big names in the rapidly growing internet world are using bitcoin for transactions.
So because of its nature as something new and can be invested I was really intrigued by the nature of this cyber thing. Bitcoin can be speculated like other prices in Malaysia ( that is to say property)
Why should you be interested in Bitcoins?
1. Bitcoins are anonymous!
It is still possible to trace the identity of a true identity but it would require great difficulties to a laymen person that is!
2. Bitcoins are difficult to understand
Money is also a difficult thing to understand. It does not make sense why I bought something and the value decreases instead of increased. Bitcoins also has that same nature, difficult to understand the works of bitcoins.
3. Payment of Bitcoins is Cash Worldwide!
You see, transaction in the internet world are often credit based. But bitcoins you can send to another person like it is a cash! The other person would receive it over the internet just like cash does.
The fees and delays involved in transferring money across borders via bitcoin are small compared to those imposed by banks and their intermediaries in the standard way: pennies compared to dollars and minutes compared to days
4. Transaction are irreversible
Either you want it or you do not want it!
5. The currency is both real and elusive!
How cool is that.
6. Even Winklevoss are investing in it!
Do you know who is Winklevoss? It you do not no, then dont buy Bitcoin!
S0 did I find Bitcoins from Supplier in Malaysia. No!
So how much is bitcoin value at right now! ! Bitcoin or BTC is about $ 1000 USD!
So will bank negara allow Bitcoins? I doubt it! It is a true bubble!
Malaysia is still infant in Bitcoins! Infant and traditionalist i would say.
The highest Bitcoin transfer would be this I guess!
