Correct use of the word Bitcoin [duplicate]

I have an unconfirmed transaction and/or it is confirming super slow. What should I do?

Be patient and wait. The transaction should confirm within 5 days. If it does not, tell the sender to resend with a fee. Do not ship goods without at least 1 confirmation. Please do not ask for help; it will not speed up confirmations.

Blockchain.info says it should be confirmed by now, but it is still not confirmed!

Blockchain.info's confirmation time is just a guess. Confirmation times may vary wildly, so do not be concerned when your confirmation time is long. Sit tight and your transaction will confirm.

Their transaction prediction system is also extremely outdated. Anything more than about 50 satoshi per byte will show up as "Will be in the next block", when in reality the priority is much, much higher.

How can I speed up confirmation in the future?

Use a wallet with dynamic fees (most do nowadays) and use the recommended fee set by the wallet. For fastest...

Bitcoin uses a scripting system for transactions. Forth-like, Script is simple, stack-based, and processed from left to right. It is purposefully not Turing-complete, with no loops.

A script is essentially a list of instructions recorded with each transaction that describe how the next person wanting to spend the Bitcoins being transferred can gain access to them. The script for a typical Bitcoin transfer to destination Bitcoin address D simply encumbers future spending of the bitcoins with two things: the spender must provide

a public key that, when hashed, yields destination address D embedded in the script, and a signature to show evidence of the private key corresponding to the public key just provided.

Scripting provides the flexibility to change the parameters of what's needed to spend transferred Bitcoins. For example, the scripting system could be used to require two private keys, or a combination of several, or even no keys at all.

A transaction is...

Cash is great. There are no banks to worry about. No fees, no credit cards, no chance of having your identity stolen or your account frozen. You may not earn any interest, but you will always have instant access to your money and you will know exactly how much you have.

Bitcoin Core version 0.10.0 is now available from:

https://bitcoin.org/bin/0.10.0/

This is a new major version release, bringing both new features and bug fixes.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

How to Upgrade

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).

Downgrading warning

Because release 0.10.0 makes use of headers-first synchronization and parallel block download (see further), the block files and databases are not backwards-compatible with older versions of Bitcoin Core or other software:

Blocks will be stored on disk out of order (in the order they are received, really), which makes it incompatible with some tools or other...

A few years ago, maybe 3 or 4 years ago, the words bitcoin, cryptocurrency and blockchain were only used by very few people worldwide. Back then even word processors would not recognize the words and instead suggest alternative spellings. At the moment, this isn’t a problem anymore, and the usage of the words has been increasing rapidly.

Bitcoin is only the one from a number of virtual currencies that function through a code known as the blockchain. The Blockchain is the code that dictates how these virtual currencies are created, and they are handled in a way that prevents duplication while maintaining anonymity. Virtual currencies like the bitcoin are built on this blockchain code and they act almost like the actual currency.

Uses of bitcoin

Bitcoin is now the most popular digital currency in the world, and due to its popularity has gained various uses. A person with bitcoin can exchange them into legal tender currency, or directly use it to buy products....
