1. What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency that uses cryptography for security and is not controlled by any central authority, such as a government or financial institution. Transactions between users are conducted directly and recorded on a decentralized public ledger called the blockchain. Because it operates on a decentralized network, Bitcoin allows users to send and receive payments without the need for an intermediary, such as a bank. This peer-to-peer nature of the Bitcoin network enables users to transact with each other directly, without the need for a trusted third party to facilitate the transaction.

This way, customers will be able to pay using their BTC wallets and you can receive payments in cryptocurrency!
