Is there any way to buy bitcoins online without a fee?

1

Of course you may trade bitcoins with just anyone without having to pay fees to a centralized exchange.

I think BitSquare may be the best answer to the question; decentralized, free to use and very low risk due to the escrow system - but not completely without fees. Well, let's walk through this ...

You probably won't get away completely without fees:

There is the bitcoin transaction fee, a fee for getting the transaction included in the network. Basically, you can't withdraw your funds from the exchange or move it from one wallet to another without paying a network fee (though internal transfers i.e. on an exchange may be for free). As of 2017 it has become significant (i.e. 0.001 BTC), though not that bad if you want to turn over significant amounts of money (i.e. 1 BTC). According to the protocol the fee is not mandatory, but a regular transaction without a fee paid is very unlikely to be included in the blockchain.

Fees to the exchange ... any...

Just remember, merchant services will reverse the payments so fast your head will spin if it isn't swiped OR if you have a tracking number with signature that matches the cardholder. They do not protect the seller for digital goods, same as paypal. I have gone through about 4...

Just for general knowledge, the reason that buy Bitcoins with a credit card isn’t available all around is due to chargeback issues that most sellers wish to avoid (for a detailed explanation look here).

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.

So, you heard about Bitcoin from a friend or maybe from a news post. You may have even read some of our articles on how to get started using Bitcoin. Now, you want to buy some Bitcoin but you are not sure how to actually do it?

Once you have downloaded a bitcoin wallet, all that remains is to actually purchase your first Bitcoins. Read on to see just how easy it is to buy Bitcoin with either a credit card or with funds directly from your bank account.

Two Different Ways to Buy Bitcoin on Bitcoin.com

Basically, there are two ways to buy Bitcoin online: the fast way and the cheaper way. The fastest way to buy Bitcoin is with a credit card. This process takes only a few minutes but there are fees.

This company deserves to have its own category because it's a Bitcoin pioneer and likely one of the highest paying companies per CTA (call to action).

Bitcoin companies are able to launch surveys and other tasks via 21.co and pay for each user that completes it.

The reward is usually anywhere between $0.10 to $10 per completed task which makes it very attractive even for regular Bitcoin users. In my case, the average profit is around $2.30 in bitcoins per task.

They also randomly send paid offers for copywriting jobs and other things where some skills may be required. For example, a few weeks ago a Bitcoin company was looking for bloggers to write about Bitcoin.

Looking for a free ticket into the Crypto world? Bitcoinist has got you covered with four ways to get Bitcoin without having to spend a cent.

You Don’t Need Money to Get Bitcoin

As Bitcoin price continues to rise, it’s getting ever more expensive to buy for the average person. But earning bitcoin might just be the best way to accumulate this digital gold. Even Bitcoin expert, Andreas Antonopoulos, admitted in one of his many talks, saying:

I don’t get Bitcoins with money, I work for them. I get bitcoins through the expenditure of my labor.

So if you want to start earning Bitcoin but don’t want to change jobs, Bitwage can help you with that. Bitwage is a bitcoin payroll and international wage payment service that that converts your salary into Bitcoin (and more). This can be done by giving the...

Address

A Bitcoin address looks like a long string of random letters and numbers. Addresses are used when you want to send or receive Bitcoins. Each wallet has at least one receiving and one sending address. When you want to receive Bitcoins to your wallet you need to give the sender your receiving wallet address.

AML and KYC

Anti Money Laundering and Know Your Customer is a group of laws in the United States that require Bitcoin sellers to know who their customers are. Certain sellers will ask for your identification to comply with these laws. Other countries around the world may have similar laws and requirements.

Blockchain

The Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoins. It’s what makes it work. Bitcoin transactions are sent to the blockchain so that miners can put them into the blocks that they mine. Once a block containing your transaction is mined it has been added to the blockchain and your transaction receives one...

Digital currencies have been growing in popularity in an exponential manner all over the world, due to the multiple benefits that they offer. Bitcoins are greatly appreciated and they provide the users with a sense of freedom and anonymity that they would not experience otherwise. As an innovative payment method, they allow you to proceed with all the necessary financial transactions you wish to complete, without revealing your identity or giving out sensitive data about yourself. As the restrictions on online gambling are on the rise worldwide, more and more people look at Bitcoin Poker, Bitcoin Sportsbooks or Bitcoin Casinos to enjoy their gambling needs. As bitcoin is not seen as a currency by many countries, more like play-money like in monopoly, gambling with bitcoin is still legal in most countries. But of course, you need to change your USD, EUR or CNY to Bitcoin first.

In order for you to get your hands on such cryptocurrency, you have to choose a method of payment....

Bitcoin is really starting to prove itself as a new method for people to send and receive money or pay for things over the internet. The recent announcement by Overstock.com that they would accept the digital currency as payment on their site sent their sales - and the company's value - soaring. This will almost certainly mean that this is now likely to be followed by other major retailers following suit.

There are loads of advantages to owning Bitcoins, and to using them for receiving money and for making payments. Firstly, this new currency is deflationary rather than inflationary. What this means is that whilst each your the dollars or pounds in your pocket will buy you less and less over time, because prices go up in dollars and other fiat currencies every year, your Bitcoins will buy you more and more each year because prices go down. This is due to the scarcity principle, because fewer Bitcoins are created each month and year, and there is a fixed limit after which no...

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...

If CISPA or other privacy-busting legislations pass, every detail of our personal lives will be at risk – and you’ll want to buy Bitcoins for safety. Although many of our foundations are rooted in anonymity, everything we see, do and buy may soon be exposed. However, technology always evolves, and anonymity is no exception.

As many already know, Bitcoin is a decentralized, digital currency that can be used like cash. What many people may not already know, however, is that there is no need to hand over all of your information to an exchange to buy bitcoins. It’s already incredibly easy to buy bitcoins anonymously, in less than 10 minutes!

Update: The following is an antiquated method to buy bitcoins anonymously. Currently, the best way to buy bitcoins anonymously is still to use a VPN or Tor and use a service like described by the anonymous member of the Bitcoin community below.

OK, so you've learned the basics about bitcoin, the next step is to get some bitcoins. But how? This guide will tell you what you need to know.

You can buy bitcoins from either exchanges, or directly from other people via marketplaces.

You can pay for them in a variety of ways, ranging from hard cash to credit and debit cards to wire transfers, or even with other cryptocurrencies, depending on who you are buying them from and where you live.

Surprisingly, it's still not easy to buy bitcoins with your credit card or PayPal, depending on your jurisdiction.

This is because such transactions can easily be reversed with a phone call to the card company (ie 'chargebacks'). Since it's hard to prove any goods changed hands in a transfer of bitcoins, exchanges avoid this payment method and so do most private sellers.

However, the options have recently grown for consumers in some countries.

In the US,...

People often claim that with Bitcoin “you can send money between any two points on earth for free”. While that is true in some cases, sometimes a transaction fee is required. The fee, when it is required, is usually worth less than 40 US cents.

The fees go to the miners to incentivise them to keep mining, which in turn keeps the Bitcoin network secure. They already get a reward of 25 XBT for each block they mine, but this reward halves every 4 years. The plan is that as the block reward diminishes over the time, it will be replaced by transaction fees.

So what decides when you have to pay, and how much?

Well, like everything else in Bitcoin, the fee structure is built into the network rules, which are defined as “what the reference client does”. When you attempt to send coins using bitcoin-qt (the current reference client), it goes through the following steps:

1. Pick which coins to spend

The client has to decide which of your coins to...
