Why you should not buy bitcoin with credit card?
By writing this post, I am not recommending you to buy bitcoins with credit card. There are several disadvantages to this;
- First of all, if you purchase anything using credit card, you indebted to the credit card company or the bank. This may put you in a double whammy situation!
- Bitcoin as an investment or speculation is quite volatile and fluctuates very much. You must only invest in bitcoin, if you are able to lose the invested money. Taking loan and investing is absolutely NO-NO!
- Imaging if you buy bitcoin with credit card at when bitcoin is $ 7,000 and price of bitcoin falls to $ 6,000…..now you are 2 disadvantages, one is that you have a loan worth $ 7,000 and bitcoin has lost its value significantly, putting you at a loss in both ways.
- Another important aspect for not buying bitcoin with credit card is that the fees for credit card purchases is upwards 7%!
