Where to buy Cannabis Seeds with Bitcoin

It's finally happened! The attention of Bitcoin reaching an all time high of $10,000 USD per coin has caught your attention. Which is why you're here.

Or you just stumbled here from another article on the website. In which case, we'll bring you up to speed on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies (in general).

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the first decentralized digital currency. Bitcoins are digital coins that can be sent through the internet from person-to-person without going through a bank or a clearing house. This means that the fees are much lower. Ever tried to make a wire transfer and then opt for another method because the bank was charging you $25? This is just one of the benefits of using Bitcoin.

Aside from lower fees, these are some other reasons why it makes sense to buy cannabis seeds with Bitcoin:
  • You can use them in any country.
  • Your account cannot be frozen.
  • There are no pre-requisites or arbitrary limits (ever tried to settle a large amount at a bank and needed to call them to allow it?)

How does Bitcoin work?

The Bitcoin network is controlled by people called miners. They solve computational equations with their computers to verify transactions and are rewarded with newly generated Bitcoins for doing so. After transactions are verified, they're recorded in a transparent transaction ledger.

Several Bitcoin exchanges exist where you can exchange fiat currency (USD, EUR, JPY, etc.) for Bitcoins. Your coins are kept secure in either of the following ways:

  • Your computer
  • Your mobile device
  • An offline wallet
  • Paper

How do I get Bitcoins? 

You'll need to first sign up for an online cryptocurrency exchange. We recommend getting started with Coinbase (a digital asset broker, that has insurance coverage on using their platform) until you're more comfortable with using Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. After that, you can branch out and use their online exchange, GDAX, which has lower fees attached.

You first need to purchase the coins first which can be done by depositing currency from your bank, or using a credit card. Using your bank has a higher deposit limit and lower fees than using a credit card.

Once you have purchased your coins and they have arrived in your wallet, you can begin using them to purchase cannabis seeds!
