Bartering Bitcoin through Fiat Currencies?
There are various platforms which can be used to barter BTC through fiat Currency. Some famous platforms are Coinbase, Gatehub, Zebpay and many more. On these platforms you can trade Bitcoin directly.

But there are various platforms which act as middle men and introduce two persons to each other for buying and selling Bitcoin like Skrill, LocalBitcoins and Paxful. But on these platforms stay careful from scamers, read all the instructions provided by the platform and follow them to deal safely.

Can you trade without owing Bitcoin?
No, you cannot trade Bitcoin without owing it, so you need to buy Bitcoin and then you can trade on any exchange by transferring it to their platform.

What can you do with Bitcoin aside of owning it?
You can buy Bitcoin, keep it in your online or offline wallet and wait for its price to rise or you can use that Bitcoin to purchase and trade other cryptocurrencies to increase the amount of Bitcoin in your wallet through trading.

Can you Buy or Sell Bitcoin anonymously?
Bitcoin is something which is anonymous, but this statement owes some explanation too. Transaction can be viewed publicly on Blockchain platform through wallet address only, but the wallet address can’t be tracked and transactions can be viewed only by the wallet address not by any name or account number. This was the reason that the Black market or Dark web was the first ones to completely adopt and deal in Bitcoin.

How many Bitcoins can you Buy at once?
There is no bar on buying Bitcoins. You can buy as many Bitcoins you want, just keep your account limit and bank balance in mind. The minimum amount of Bitcoin that you can buy on some platforms is for $1.99 which includes 99 cents as fees.

Now a question arises whether or not you can purchase Bitcoin using a credit card? Yes, of course, you can buy it using any Visa or MasterCard but not with American Express. Nowadays Bitcoin can even be purchased through ATMs in some countries.
