How do I put bitcoins in my “Wallet”?

1

When new Bitcoins are issued (7,200 per day, on average) they go to those who are mining for bitcoins. At one point in time, mining to acquire bitcoins was something that was relatively easy to do. That is no longer the case. So now to acquire bitcoins one would normally buy bitcoins at an exchange.

What options are available to you will differ based on where you are, what payment methods you have available, how quickly you need the bitcoins and how many you intend to buy.

For instance, in the U.S., the fastest method to buy bitcoins is to use the service BitInstant where you deposit cash at a bank and they send the funds to an exchange. The cheapest method is to do a bank transfer using Dwolla as intermediary -- however that is not very fast. Other methods are shown here:

Then once you have purchased the bitcoins at the exchange, you would simply withdraw them and send them to a bitcoin address from your own wallet. Using the Bitcoin.org client you would...

To convert Bitcoin into cash, look for a Bitcoin exchange that will allow you to sell your Bitcoin at a reasonable price, for your preferred local currency (such as pesos, dollars, or euros).

Most Bitcoin exchanges display their sell price, or "offer", in a ticker located at or near the top part of their homepage:

The sell price is basically what an exchange uses to compute how much cash you will get when you convert your Bitcoin. The price shown on the ticker is real-time and is usually updated every few seconds.

When choosing which exchange to use, you should consider the following:

Whether or not the exchange supports your preferred currency, and your preferred method of receiving your cash How much does the exchange charge? (Beware of exchanges with hidden fees!) How long it will take for them to send your funds? Whether or not their sell price is reasonable If the exchange has a reputation of being legitimate and reliable

Today I am going to talk about the fork again and the free money is created from thin air!!

Mind you, this is not the fork which you use to eat noodles, but the fork/split of the most legendary cryptocurrency – Bitcoin, and the free money created from thin air – Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

If you don’t understand what I am talking about, then I guess you have not read our guides on the Bitcoin fork and Bitcoin Cash (BCH):

For those you have just joined now (post-fork party), in a nutshell, this is what happened:

On

August 1, 2017

As of block 478559, the Bitcoin (BTC) network has hard forked into Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

This hard fork has now created Bitcoin Cash (BCH) which is worth $440 per unit (at the time of this writing) and is the third most valuable cryptocurrency according to CoinMarketCap.

Abracadabra!! Bitcoin Cash is worth $440, and it was just created out of thin air!

Isn’t is amazing?

At least to me it...

in fact, to correctly answer your question, you need first to provide more info on wich wallet you actually used.

depending if you use electrum, bitcoin core, or another one, it could exist some different way to backup it.

Apparently, as you talked about "downloading the entire blockchain" on your post, I supposed you should use bitcoin core or bitcoin classic.

in this case, depending on your operating system, the "wallet.dat" file wich need to be backup could be found in differents locations.

if it's on Linux: it's based in home folder:

A cool function of Bitcoin not mentioned in introductions is its message signing and verification feature. I'll use the Satoshi client on a Mac as the example but the same functions are available in the wallet at blockchain.info and in any decent Bitcoin client.

Suppose you have a dispute with a vendor you paid in bitcoin. They say you didn't pay them the correct amount or they didn't get paid at all. So you show them the record of the transaction.

Great, says the vendor, but how do I know that's your coin?

In the Satoshi client, go to the "Receive Coins" tab. At the bottom, you'll see an option that says, "Sign Message" (you can also go to File > Sign Message). Enter the Bitcoin address that you own that initiated the transaction (that's the address to the left of the green arrow in the transaction record mentioned earlier) into the address form. Write your message and then hit the "Sign Message" button.

The signature generated is unique to the address...

When you log in to your Coinapult wallet, the first interface you see will display a bitcoin address. This bitcoin address is your public bitcoin address and is unique to you. You can generate as many new public bitcoin addresses as you would like at no cost. In fact, it is recommended that you try to use a new address for each transaction.

Share your public bitcoin address with anyone who will be sending you funds, much like you would use an email address. The sender can either use the alphanumeric string or the corresponding QR code generated on the Receive page of your wallet.

You can visit the Transactions page in your account to view any incoming transactions. Note that Coinapult waits for two blockchain confirmations before crediting incoming...

This is a guide to making a completely secure Bitcoin Wallet wallet you keep on a thumb drive. The reason it is so secure is that we will be using Ubuntu to create a boot-able operating system to avoid any malware, spyware, or viruses. We are doing it this way because there are programs out there that try to steal your Bitcoin Wallet. There are online wallets that you can use but I highly suggest you only use those for day to day transactions and you keep a separate wallet for your savings account.

Before we get started you will need 1 or 2 Thumb Drives (will go into detail on why you may need 2 later). They don’t have to be big. I bought my 2 Gb drives for 5 dollars each. Once you have that, we can get started.

The Operating system for your Secure Bitcoin Wallet will be Ubuntu. Don’t be scared if you’ve only used Windows your whole life. I will be walking you through this step-by-step.

Bitcoin wallets store the private keys that you need to access a bitcoin address and spend your funds. They come in different forms, designed for different types of device. You can even use paper storage to avoid having them on a computer at all. Of course, it is very important to secure and back up your bitcoin wallet.

Bitcoins are a modern equivalent of cash and, every day, another merchant starts accepting them as payment. We know how they are generated and how a bitcoin transaction works, but how are they stored? We store fiat cash in a physical wallet, and bitcoin works in a similar way, except it's normally digital.

Well, to be absolutely accurate, you don't technically store bitcoins anywhere. What you store are the secure digital keys used to access your public bitcoin addresses and sign transactions. This information is stored in a bitcoin wallet.

Bitcoin wallets come in a variety of forms. There are five main...

Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet: a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. As such, it is more resistant to wild inflation and corrupt banks. With Bitcoin, you can be your own bank.

How do I send my bitcoins? Where do I send them?

...and variants:
"What is the best wallet?" "How do I secure my BTC / LTC?" "How do I put away the coins?" (also applies to Litecoin and others)

Before making a decision, consider the following:

How much are your bitcoins worth? How often will you need to access them? Will you want to access the bitcoins quickly? Can you set up a safe and secure back-up solution? Do you have a fast computer and a good internet connection?
Below you will find the most common solutions that differ in various aspects.

Your breadwallet exists only on your phone and connects to the bitcoin network directly. The private information needed to access it is shown to you in the form of a recovery phrase, and your information is not shared with us in any way. We are not able to access your wallet for you if you lose your recovery phrase.

If you are using an iPhone and your wallet is still installed, we suggest you take an iCloud or iTunes backup of the app. Then, try to guess your passcode. If you make too many incorrect attempts and the wallet is reset, restore the iTunes or iCloud backup and you will be able to make more passcode guesses. Write down what you have already guessed so you don't try the same passcode multiple times.

Unfortunately, there is no way to backup your wallet with Android, so the above solution only works on...

The most important thing to remember when dealing with Bitcoin is to keep your private keys safe!

Bitcoins are stored in accounts that require private keys to prove ownership. Typically these keys are stored in your bitcoin wallet by the app. Without the private keys, you can’t prove that you own the bitcoins in those accounts, and won’t be able to spend them. On the other hand, anyone who gets copies of those private keys will also have full control of those accounts, and can spend them even without your approval.

Because of this, it is very important to keep those private keys safe and secure. These keys can come in many forms. They can be a long string of random characters, a QR code, or even a list of 12 or more unique words. Mycelium uses the 12 words to create your keys, and stored bitcoin addresses in what is called an HD Wallet account. It is very important that you keep a copy of those words secure, but also somewhere where you won’t lose them. If you lose...

Learn about Bitcoin mining.

To understand Bitcoin, it is important to understand Bitcoin mining, which is the process by which Bitcoin are created. While mining is complex, the basic idea is that each time a Bitcoin transaction is made between two people, the transaction is logged digitally by computers in a transaction log that describes all the details of the transaction (like the time, and who owns how many Bitcoins).

[3]These transactions are then shared publicly into something known as a "block chain", which states every transaction, and who owns every bitcoin. Bitcoin miners are individuals who own computers that constantly verify the block chain to ensure it is correct and up to date. They are the individuals that confirm transactions, and in exchange for doing so, they are paid in bitcoin, which increases the supply. Since Bitcoin is not overseen by a central authority, mining ensures that the individual transferring the bitcoin has enough, that the agreed upon amount...

Accept bitcoins as payment.

A number of businesses and services now accept bitcoins as payment. If you do any online services, you can also accept bitcoins as payment. Accepting payment in bitcoins can be beneficial if you're a small business or independent professional (like a dentist), because it does not cost money to accept bitcoins as payment.

[17]

You can also avoid chargebacks, or consumer disputes with their credit card issuer that lose you money, because bitcoin transactions are irreversible.

[18]You can process payments yourself manually, but this may be difficult to do if you're not tech savvy. You can use a variety of merchant services to help with your bitcoin transactions if you're selling online using bitcoins. The bitcoin website can help you locate merchants willing to work with you based on your location, trade, and bank.[19] You want to make sure people with bitcoin accounts can find you and spend their bitcoins on your site. You can apply to a variety...
