Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an unknown person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto
Transactions are made with no middle men – meaning, no banks! There are no transaction fees and no need to give your real name.

HOW TO FUND YOUR BITCOIN WALLET
To fund your Bitcoin wallet is very simple. All you need to do is get someone who have money in his bitcoin account to send money to your own bitcoin account while you pay him for the money. Let’s be practical here.
I have $10,000 in my Bitcoin account. You do not have any in your account yet. You contacted me that you need bitcoin. I am willing to sell. We agree that i will sell $1 for N550. You want $1000. You will pay me 550 x 1000 = N550,000 and i will login to my blockchain account and click on SEND
Just like in the image below…

I will fill in your BITCOIN wallet ID. The dollar amount you want, Description (transfer/sales) and i will click on next and confirm on the next page.
You gave me money, i gave you bitcoin. That’s how to get BITCOIN.
There are trusted merchants like www.naira4dollar.com that sells bitcoin.

Another easy way is just search on google.com a phrase like…
buy/sell BITCOIN in …. (put your city). Eg, buy/sell bitcoin in Lagos (if my city is Lagos). Once you do that, you will see a handful of websites and results that will come up. Check on them and look for the one that is closer to you. I advise you to walk into their office, cash at hand and do the transaction.

 There are many scammers who disguise as bitcoin seller and offer your ridiculous price to lure you and scam you.

www.naira4dollar.com is tested and trusted and you can pay them without going to their office but ensure you confirm from them they have on ground before paying. I am not their affiliate o, just saying this out of my previous dealings with them.

Now, go get your BITCOIN account funded as i roll out opportunities you can use BITCOIN to partake in.
