Are you getting started with Bitcoin? Whether you have read up on Bitcoin or have zero Bitcoin knowledge, RockItCoin is here to guide you every step of the way. Our team wants to make buying Bitcoin easy and accessible to residents of Southern Florida. Below are our recommended steps for how to get started with Bitcoin. 

  1. Get Educated –  If you have not already, get educated about Bitcoin. Starting with the basics is a great idea. You should know that Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Bitcoins are released as a reward for a process known as mining, which is a way to validate and process transactions in the blockchain. Bitcoins can be bought and sold on exchanges with fiat currencies or other cryptocurrencies. The supporting technology behind Bitcoin is the blockchain, which is a secure and transparent ledger that records all transactions in the network. Both the decentralization and the cryptographic security of the blockchain make it resistant to modification of the data, ensuring the integrity and transparency of the currency’s transactions. Once a transaction enters the ledger, it is permanently recorded. 

There are a few more things that you should know in order to use Bitcoin securely and avoid common problems.

Here is a breakdown of the basics

  1. Pick A Wallet – Before you buy Bitcoin in Miami, pick a wallet. Here are a few key factors to consider when choosing a digital wallet for cryptocurrency and bitcoin:


 Look for a wallet that offers robust security features such as two-factor authentication and strong encryption.


Make sure the wallet is compatible with the devices you use and the cryptocurrencies you want to store.

Ease of Use

 A user-friendly interface is important, especially if you are new to using digital wallets.

Privacy: Consider if the wallet provider stores your private keys on their servers or if you have control over your keys. 


Some wallets charge transaction fees for sending and receiving cryptocurrency, so compare fees between different wallets to see which one offers the best value.


Read reviews and check the reputation of the wallet provider before making a decision.

Ultimately, it’s important to choose a wallet that meets your specific needs and to keep your private keys safe.
