Bitcoins have no dividend or potential future dividend, therefore not like a stock.

More like a collectible or commodity.

Satoshi Nakomoto

Everybody can afford a bit of a Bitcoin.

A Bitcoin is divisible by 100 million bits. These bits are known as Satoshis.
One Satoshi = 0.00000001 bitcoin (8 decimal places) is worth a 1/50th of a British Penny.

You’ll hear the phrase Stay Humble Stacks Sats a lot while in Bitcoin. SATS are short for satoshis.

It’s easier to think in whole numbers than fractions. Therefore I recommend when talking about Bitcoin, rather than saying 0.01 bitcoin you say 1 million sats.

A Risk Free Option. (Non Technical Users*)

Satsback is an evolution of cashback and loyalty rewards. It is the reward you earn by using when you shop online at any of our connected stores. The satsback reward is a % of what you spend that you get back in bitcoin

coincorner bitcoinessex
coincorner allows you to purchase everyday items from the internet and give you cashback in Satoshis.
You can expect from 0.4% up to a massive 15% back in bitcoin using a company like Coincorner
(I like this option as any purchase I make will be free if the price of Bitcoin goes up 10x )


Earn Bitcoin For Walking.

Check out the $miles app it will reward you in sats just for walking. Link it to your phone step tracker. Make yourself healthy and wealthy. They also have a roulette wheel you can spin once per 12 hours for the chance to win 420 sats.

This is a nice simple way to learn how to do micropayments. Micropayments use satoshi’s (the smallest denomination of bitcoin.) You can send someone fractions of a penny using the lightning network and it costs to do so is virtually free. (There is a charge to move bitcoin to lightning but once it is there you can make thousands of transactions for ZERO) you can learn more about the lightning network here

I recently sent my lightning wallet 500 sats that I earned using this app. I sent it to my own lightning wallet and it cost 0 ZERO sats.

Earn Interest in Bitcoin

you can earn a % extra on your bitcoin by providing liquidity to an exchange. I use Coinloan, They are based in Estonia and have an impressive history when it comes to security, simple user face plus minimal withdrawal fees means it’s the one for me.

The current interest rate (which is paid in bitcoin) is a max 7.2% APY
