How to Turn Those Bitcoins into Cold Hard Cash

  • Cashing Out

    Whether you need GBP, Japanese yen, USD, or any other currency, cashing out is one way you can convert your Bitcoin into cash. The cash out process is not complicated but is a little bit time consuming. It would be best to consider whether you want to receive money directly to your PayPal or bank account and the time you want to receive the money. Let’s have a look at the various ways on how to cash out Bitcoin.

  • Bitcoin Exchange With a Third-Party Broker

    A third-party broker is also another name used interchangeably as a bitcoin exchange. Most cryptocurrency exchanges may not let you deposit funds using flat money. However, some do. The process involves depositing your Bitcoin to an exchange and later make a request for flat money withdrawal.

    To ensure that brokers do not violate money laundering regulations, you have to withdraw to the same account you used to deposit. In case you hadn’t deposited fiat into a broker exchange, you will have to make your first deposit first. Cashing out with a broker exchange requires patience. It takes about 1-5 days to have the money in your bank account. The most popular payment methods include SEPA for withdrawals in Euros and SWIFT for withdrawals in USD.

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P)

    If you dislike the thought of waiting for three days to cash out Bitcoin, you may consider using a P2P platform. A peer-to-peer transaction means you have data relating to the person or entity you’re transacting with. Such data include wallet and IP addresses, forum username, and location. Sometimes it involves face-to-face meetings.

  • Beware of Fraud

    The payment buyers can use direct cash deposits, bank transfers, or meet-in people to collect your money. Selling with a P2P is a secure method, but always be vigilant about fraudsters. To make the transaction secure, you can opt to use escrow.

With the help of this guide, you already know how to cash out Bitcoin using two different methods- the broker exchange and the peer-to-peer method. The two methods have their own advantages and disadvantages.
