Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology. Cryptocurrency in terms of a bitcoin is digital money, protected with cryptographic hashes and distributed on a decentralized network. Within the blockchain, Bitcoins distributed among different accounts which are called addresses. If you want to learn more about what is Bitcoin and how it works, please read our guide .
A bitcoin wallet is a software used to manage your Bitcoins. It contains private keys and public addresses and gives you full access to your funds. Some of the wallets are hardware, some of them called hot, cold, desktop, and mobile wallets. If you want to learn more about cryptocurrency wallets, please read our guide .
Wallets are the main user interface through which a person interacts with the cryptocurrency system.
The bitcoin wallet is protected as you keep your seed or private keys in a safe and secure place.
Do not store large amounts on your computer, web service, or mobile app. Most likely, hardware wallets are better suited for large savings, though they are not convenient for everyday use. Hot wallets allow you to backup through email of 2FA, though, there are risks of losing funds due to the hackers' attack. Decentralized wallets enable you to manage cryptocurrency on your device, but you need to pay attention to how you store your backup as it's the primary access to your funds .
Bitcoin transaction fees can plunge new users into a stupor, who do not understand how they are calculated and why sometimes Bitcoin fees for a transaction is higher than $3. To understand the reason for the high bitcoin fee, you need to delve into the principle of the blockchain .
Each Bitcoin block consists of multiple recipient and sender addresses. Most likely, you will see hundreds of transactions in a block. There are miners in Bitcoin blockchain; they create new blocks, thus allows to send money from one account to another. The more transaction is waiting to be approved in the system, and the more likely the fees will skyrocket. It happens when Bitcoin's price increases rapidly.
As Bitcoin blockchain works on a UTXO principle (you own Bitcoins that are currently unspent), the more inputs you have, the larger will be the fees for you to send Bitcoins.
