What is Bitcoin ?

Bitcoin is the first, the strongest and the most popular digital currency that has ever existed in the cyber world. With its market cap reaching 5 billion US dollars (2015), Bitcoin is being widely used by millions of people in the world. Bitcoin has now become one of the most efficient methods for global society to transfer money anywhere, to any country and anytime they want, without having to depend on any third party such as banks, financial institutions, companies or governments.

Bitcoin Community in Indonesia

Although it is not the biggest one yet, Bitcoin already has its own community in Indonesia and is gaining more and more members every day. Only within 2 years, there are already more than 100,000 people registered on the biggest Bitcoin exchange in Indonesia and they have been trading actively using Rupiah as their main currency. Special events such as Bitcoin forum discussions, meet ups, seminars or even film festivals have been organised in different cities in Indonesia every months to discuss about the latest news regarding Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency in both national and global scales. And just like in other countries, there are more than 100 merchants in Indonesia that have been accepting payments in Bitcoin, based on the local currency: Rupiah.

Bitcoin Regulation in Indonesia

One of our biggest missions is to foster an open and clear dialogue between the regulators and the Cryptocurrency community in Indonesia. As a Bitcoin user, we need to help our government understand both the positive and negative aspects of Bitcoin, and help them finalise a kind of regulation that is suitable to be applied in Indonesia and one that can benefit us all.
