Bitcoin is the safest digital currency and has all of the following characteristics:
Bitcoin transactions have no geographical restrictions; you can send bitcoin freely to anywhere in the world, and vice versa - receive bitcoin deposits from anywhere in the world - without intermediaries (such as banks), quickly and anonymously.
Bitcoin is legal not only in Poland but also throughout the European Union. In most countries it is a legal form of payment on the Internet, and e.g. in Finland, Germany, and Switzerland bitcoin is officially recognized by the state and institutions as a means of payment.
Bitcoin is a digital currency. For the purposes of this explanation, we will compare it to "cryptographically secured gold ducats". All bitcoin transactions are recorded simultaneously on many thousands of computers. This means that there are tens of thousands of copies of the log of all bitcoin transactions.
This makes bitcoin secure, and there is no way to copy, erase, undo, or falsify either the number of transactions or their value, because any such change would have to take place on tens of thousands of computers simultaneously.
Each of the computers (they are called nodes) checks each bitcoin transaction so that we do not have to use any expensive intermediary, such as a bank or other financial institution, as a guarantor of its correctness and proper execution.
These computers (nodes) are the equivalent of a banking network - they form a cohesive system for overseeing the proper trading of the digital currency bitcoin. It is as if each computer (node) was a branch of a bank - on the one hand it executes transactions ordered, on the other - together with other branches - it constantly checks their correctness.
Bitcoin is the most valuable currency in the world. As we write this article, the price of 1 bitcoin is equivalent to about 60,000 USD. While one Euro costs only 4.51 PLN.
The high price is due to the limited number of bitcoins, high security and anonymity, lack of transaction intermediaries (e.g. banks) and resistance to manipulation by governments, organizations and institutions.
Fortunately you don't have to buy the whole bitcoin, you can buy part of it, because bitcoin is divided into as many as 100 000 000 satoshi or Satoshi. So you can buy 100 satoshi or more depending on how much you want to spend.

A cryptocurrency wallet is required to store bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. There are two basic types of wallets: so-called cold wallets and hot wallets.
The safest way to store bitcoin are cold wallets. They are characterized by the fact that they are located on apps or devices without direct internet access.
More flexible are the so-called hot wallets, which are applications that store BTC installed on devices connected to the Internet (computer, smartphone, tablet). Hot wallets are easier to set up and use, but on the other hand, like any other application, they can be vulnerable to attacks by thieves.
Cryptocurrency wallets are available online as mobile or web (computer) applications. Popular wallets for the computer include Electrum and Blockstream Green, among others.
Examples of mobile wallets include the Green Wallet mobile app, Edge or Aqua.
Cold wallets, which offer the highest level of security, are ordered from their manufacturers. The most popular wallets of this type are among others devices manufactured by TREZOR and Ledger.
The decision to choose the type of wallet is entirely up to you. Bitcan does not recommend or advertise specific wallet solutions.
The best place to start is by gaining some basic knowledge about bitcoin and investing in this cryptocurrency. It is worth spending some time to avoid making unnecessary mistakes.
If you don't have an account with Bitcan now is a great time to create one and start investing with us.
It is definitely worth it. Here are a few reasons why:
If you are already convinced - register an account at bitcan.pl, if you have questions contact us on Facebook or write us an email.
Yes, we care about your safety, among other things, from the technical and legal side.
We secure the website of Bitcan with the same SSL 256 security protocol which is used by banks. It is symbolized by a padlock visible in the web address of Bitcan and your bank.
We also use other monitoring systems which, for security reasons, run in the background to further enhance the protection of your transactions.
Bitcan operates on the basis of regulations and directives which are in force in Poland and in the European Union and which aim, among others, to protect as much as possible the safety of people making financial transactions on the Internet.
In order to provide you and your transactions with an appropriate level of security, Bitcan.pl bitcoin exchange has introduced a verification of clients' identity (KYC) and procedures protecting against money laundering (AML).
Verification is simple: you take a picture of your ID or passport and a picture of your face using a special application available in your panel. The application sends them to us and we check the correctness and compliance of the data. You will receive information about the verification result within a few minutes.
You will undergo identity verification once, before making your first transaction. Why is it necessary? So that we can ensure the safety of you and other users. You also show your ID to the bank.
The verification that we ask you to do after you open an account at KYC takes a few minutes - that's all the time it takes for you to send us all the necessary information and for us to check its correctness.
On working days, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on weekends from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. verification takes a few minutes. Outside business hours the waiting time may be longer, up to several hours.
This is the most common cryptocurrency scam scenario: a stranger convinces you to buy bitcoins and asks you to send them to his wallet address and promises a quick and easy profit.
A wallet address is the equivalent of a bank account number.
Often scammers use public figures to promote fraudulent actions. Dick Smith and Andrew Forrest and other celebrities have already been used in this way. Sending cryptocurrencies to a cryptocurrency wallet other than your own simply means losing the bitcoins you bought and the money you bought them for.
Bitcan.pl does not cooperate with any financial advisors, consultants, online stores, classifieds or auction services.
At Bitcan.pl you can make transactions (deposits and withdrawals) with 21 banks. Unfortunately one of them, mBank, has different rules.
mBank's policy towards all companies - exchanges - which allow the sale and purchase of cryptocurrencies and their clients is very restrictive; mBank blocks all transfers aimed at buying BTC on exchanges. The direct reason for this approach is the frequent fraud attempts committed by pseudo companies offering quick and easy profits. When mBank changes its rules we will add it to the list of cooperating institutions.
The easiest way to avoid this problem is to use another account at another bank or open an account at another bank for bitcoin buying/selling transactions. At Bitcan cryptocurrency exchange we accept deposits and withdrawals from over a dozen banks.
Remember that safety of your money is our priority, that's why Bitcan additionally verifies transactions which may raise doubts; we want to make sure that nobody tries to extort money from you.
Yes, in Bitcan cryptocurrency exchange you can buy bitcoins and pay with BLIK from banks which allow this possibility, except mBank, bank Pekao S.A. and Alior Bank. The latter bank allows such transactions once every dozen or so attempts. As in the case of mBank, this is a result of the policy implemented by these banks to cooperate with the bitcoin market.
Unfortunately not. This is due to the nature of the bitcoin network and specifically to one of the five fundamental characteristics of bitcoin - resistance to censorship (you can read about other characteristics of bitcoin in What is bitcoin?). Neither Bitcan nor any other person, company, institution or organization can interfere in bitcoin transactions.
This means that when ordering a BTC withdrawal you must be sure to enter a valid bitcoin wallet address.
Sending cryptocurrencies to an incorrect cryptocurrency wallet simply means you will lose your bitcoins and the money you bought them with.
It is an Polish ID with an electronic layer. An electronic layer means that the e-ID has an embedded chip invisible to the naked eye. Thanks to this chip, the e-ID can be used as a proximity card, in which case the reader will electronically read the information stored in it.
If you made a new ID card after March 4, 2019, you definitely have an e-ID. It looks almost the same as the ID cards issued until March 3, 2019, but it has an additional piece of information - the CAN number. You will find it in the lower right corner on the first page of the document; this number is also written in the barcode on the back of the e-ID.
In order to use the electronic layer of the e-ID, activate it in the office when receiving the document. At the same time set a PIN code for it. You can also do this upon receipt, in the office, but this will require an additional visit.
The e-ID card looks like the one pictured below:
If you have an e-ID with an electronic layer you can use it to confirm your identity at Bitcan cryptocurrency exchange. For this you will need the eDO App, issued by PWPW. You can download the app for smartphones:
For verification you will need:

The most common reason for a transaction to be cancelled is that the deposit took longer than it should have to reach us. This means that the funds you transferred to us were not credited within 10 minutes from the moment the transaction was initiated. A common cause of delays in transferring funds to pay for a transaction is a delay by banks. Neither you, nor we have any influence on that. Attention! We cannot re-transfer a cancelled transaction, you just need to make a new one, keeping in mind the 10-minute deposit window.
Why only 10 minutes?
You may be wondering why you only have 10 minutes to pay for a transaction. We do this to protect you from the consequences of cryptocurrency exchange rate fluctuations, such as a surge in the rate (price) and demand for bitcoin. We care that you always get what you want at the price you accepted.
For cancelled transactions we will return the money to your bank account
If you paid for a transaction after the scheduled time, don't worry - the money will be returned to your bank account. You will shortly receive a refund email from our payment partner Tpay.
If you have not yet received the refund email and the funds have not returned to your account, you can contact Tpay for more information about the refund.
