Buy Bitcoin in Germany

While countries like Venezuela and India have been adopting bitcoin partially out of necessity, Germans (and the rest of the world) have watched their bank bailouts keep the EU printing currency at a massive rate. With the UK’s exit from the eurozone and Italy wanting off the euro for years, buying bitcoin with euros before it crashes, gives Germans a great way to store value without politicians and bankers and devaluing their wealth.

The Brexit vote was a great example of central banks “screwing” (unintentionally perhaps) an entire country. Anyone with plans to use their Pounds internationally lost 10% of the value, regardless of how they had voted the day before.

Storing wealth in a centralized currency costs everyone, the decentralized value of bitcoins protocol is unintentionally “marketed” by the global financial markets constantly.

Best Bitcoin Exchanges in Germany

Everyone in Germany has more than enough great places to buy bitcoin thanks to many early adopters in Berlin trying it as an alternative to MasterCard and Visa’s retailer fee’s.

Although the banking industry doesn’t know what they want to do with bitcoin. They’ve been quoted wanting a “clampdown” on bitcoin in Germany as well as stating that bitcoin is global and they can’t control it.
