Why startups should consider using bitcoins - WazirX

The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the popularity of fiat alternatives as cashless means of settling transactions. This has added to Bitcoin’s acceptance across business houses like Overstock, Microsoft, Expedia, Planet Express, and eGifter, to name a few. Today, we are going to analyze the ways in which this numero-uno crypto can add to the growth curve of your start-up business:

  • Anonymity

Purchases of bitcoins are not public unless you decide on disclosing the information on your end. These cash-like transactions of the digital world do not leave behind any digital footprint, making them untraceable. A unique bitcoin address is generated against each bitcoin transaction which gives a good amount of privacy to business owners. 

  • Decentralization

Any central authority does not regulate the bitcoin value. Government bodies also do not have any say over the sale or purchase of bitcoins. People can easily engage in bitcoin transactions provided they are holders of a valid crypto wallet and have a working internet connection. 

  • Minimal Fees

Traditional banks charge an exorbitant fee on the transactions, which makes it difficult for start-ups to sustain in a cut-throat competitive market. But bitcoin can lessen such woes by keeping its users buffered from having to shell out heavy amounts towards minimum balance fees, account maintenance fees, overdraft charges, returned deposit fees, etc. While the cryptocurrency exchanges levy a minimal charge for the services provided, it cannot be compared to the traditional banking charges. 

Banks also levy hefty fees on international wire transfers and currency exchange. This simply adds to the expense meter of start-ups, which are engaged in international dealings. Bitcoins, on the other hand, can transfer your money without the involvement of banks and this helps in lowering down the cost. You can also benefit from instant remittance, as cryptocurrencies do not depend on any third-party approval for initiating payments. 

  • Easy Accessibility

A robust infrastructure already exists for fostering crypto transactions across the globe. You need to put in your credentials, like account number, while completing transactions with a credit card. But this is not the case with bitcoins where you can enter into transactions very easily without having to type in your credentials time and again. 

  • Universal Acceptability

Trading start-ups have to deal with multinational clients, and this involves the hassles of currency exchange. Bitcoin can put all those worries to rest by removing the territorial and political barriers which otherwise handicap fiat currencies. It is very difficult to shop using dollars in Germany or euros in New Zealand. However, bitcoins hold the same value around the globe, which helps in using them anywhere. The unrestricted global circulation of Bitcoin is free from third-party interference, restrictions, or approvals. Hence, the payment is completely modulated by the bitcoin owner, making it a highly practical solution.

  • Security

Blockchain defines the security of the bitcoin network. It operates on the framework of complex mathematical cryptograms, which maintains its uniqueness for every single transaction. This ensures the safety of your crypto coins. It also becomes impossible to make any alterations after a data bit has been added to the chain. You can take the example of a credit card transaction, which can be blocked easily. However, the same is not true in a bitcoin transaction that becomes irreversible on being a part of the blockchain. The level of security gets further enhanced by the encryption and authentic digital signature used by each crypto wallet for data processing. 

  • Fast Transaction Speed

The lack of any barriers makes the crypto transactions super-fast in nature. The transactions take place on a real-time basis so that you can get the bitcoins credited into or debited from your account instantaneously, rather than waiting for the time-taking fiat currencies. The speed of the transactions also remains the same, irrespective of whether it is international or domestic. 

  • Hedge Against Inflation

Bitcoins are safeguarded from the risk of inflation, which is a big concern for fiat currencies. An upper ceiling of 21 million bitcoins makes it impossible to increase its supply beyond a certain point for preventing arbitrary issues. 

Final Words

Bitcoin works on the framework of a peer-to-peer network for helping users send and receive payments. This decentralized digital cryptocurrency is not controlled by any central authority, making theft a practical impossibility. The bitcoin India rate today (24.11.2020) is 1,386,782 and it is expected to rise further in days to come, following the Supreme Court’s order to lift the ban imposed previously by RBI on cryptocurrencies.
