Our mission

With bit4coin we provide the best tool for experienced bitcoiners to attract friends and family to the virtual currency, and a simple and easy-to-use portal into bitcoin for new users. We believe that by turning an abstract technology such as a virtual currency into a physical item like a gift voucher, we make bitcoin much more accessible to new users.
Our goal

We want to support world-wide bitcoin adoption. We believe bitcoin is money from the people, for the people, and want bitcoin to get into as many hands as possible. We are confident bitcoin is ready for the next wave of everyday users, beyond early adopters.
Security of processes and funds

We keep 100% of your funds with banking institutions in the European Union which are subject to deposit insurance. We convert funds to bitcoins when you redeem your vouchers, and keep bitcoins in secure wallets in various locations with multiple layers of security. In addition, we have sufficient funding to ensure reliable business operations.
Our company

We, bit4coin BV, are based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Founded in 2013, we bring a lot of experience: Both co-founders have 8+ years experience in banking, management consulting, finance, and IT.

Her work is very versatile from impressionist landscape and still-life to realistically portrait. The common thread throughout her work demonstrates both whimsical flourish as well as deep symbolism.

Toby Weston
Toby Weston

Toby Weston is working as a commercial digital artist and graphic designer in modern printing and digital production. His recent work draws upon technology as inspiration, medium and tool. Toby recognises the glitches and artefacts of the digital as visible brushstrokes which add authenticity and texture. Technologies relentless alienating march is the landscape to be explored.

Three New Artists to Add

New_Artists_A4BHello everyone – I’d like to welcome three more artists to the Art 4 Bitcoin list – John Lindh, Jon Masters and Stefania Nistoreanu. I wish them all well in their endeavours!

John Lindh’s focus is in photography. He is from Sweden and samples of his work can be found here.

Jon Masters is an American artist in New Orleans. Jon’s work focuses on surreal realistic landscapes and samples of his work can be found here.

Stefania Nistoreaunu is from Romania. Stefania paints abstract works that:

talk about the world of our subconscious that we are afraid to dive, but we need to visit them sometimes to know us fully.

Samples of Stefania’s work can be found here.

I have also put together a quick “how to” page for artists to follow and get themselves set up to accept bitcoin as well as other cyrptocurrencies.

As far as bitcoin is concerned it’s price is still holding against a torrent of criticism. The most recent being the fall of Mt. Gox. This may or may not have been due to something called “transaction malleability” and not due to an inherent flaw in the blockchain as some have suggested. The inevitable collapse that some though the Mt. Gox crisis would bring has not come to pass. At the time of this writing BCT is hovering around $450 USD although down from over $1000 months ago. One of the newer articles on the Mt. Gox debacle is from By Tim Hornyak, IDG News Service and can be found on the pcworld.com site. Here’s a quick quote:

Fewer than 400 bitcoins could have been stolen from the Mt. Gox Bitcoin exchange using so-called transaction malleability attacks, according to a Swiss study—far less than the hundreds of thousands of bitcoins the company reported.

The rest of the article is here – ‘Malleability’ attacks not to blame for Mt. Gox’s missing bitcoins.

More on bitcoin “misinformation” comes from Kyle Torpey and can be found on cryptocoinsnews.com  – Mark T. Williams’ Recent Bitcoin Article is Misinformation

Then there’s Fiat Leak – a totally fantastic site that tracks the movement of bitcoins from fiat currencies around the world. I watched this for a few minutes – there were upwards of 300 + Bitcoins that moved into China… where they are supposedly banned…  watch the world currencies flow into BTC in real time!

On a final note I highly recommend subscribing to Bill Still’s Youtube channel as he has some great insights into bitcoin and the other cyrypto’s.
