What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is an alternative financial system that uses computer code and cryptography. It is transparent, censorship-resistant and trustless (does not need a central authority to operate). It is available at all hours of the day, every day. It was originally conceived as an alternative payment network but is today used more as an investment and store of value.

How do you sell your Bitcoin?

Do you need some cash? Or perhaps you want to take some profits from your crypto investments and reinvest? As a novice, you might not know how you go about selling Bitcoin. Not to worry. It is a fairly simple procedure that only requires you to choose the method that suits you. Find out how to sell Bitcoin stress-free.

Which platform should you use to sell Bitcoin?

How can you sell your Bitcoin? You first need to choose a trading platform or investor network. There are three options available to an individual looking to sell their Bitcoin.

  • Contact an online broker (like Coinhouse). This is the ideal solution for those who want to sell Bitcoin when they want, with little more needed than an internet connection. This is also the most secure option, such intermediaries have segregated accounts (funds are managed by a third-party entity) and are approved by the French Financial Markets Regulator (AMF). Incidentally, Coinhouse was the first platform to be registered with the AMF as a digital assets service provider. You can sell Bitcoin, paying low transaction fees, and have access to a wide range of cryptocurrencies.
  • Sell through peer-to-peer platforms. This way of selling your Bitcoins means you find a buyer yourself and often sell at a lower price.
  • Go through a Bitcoin ATM that allows you to sell Bitcoin for euro: France has some of these machines. The downside it that the transaction fees are particularly high! Moreover, the machine does not tell you the price so you will need to find it out beforehand.

Can you only get euros for selling Bitcoin?

This is not a trivial question. Yes, it is possible to sell Bitcoin for other currencies, digital and fiat. You can choose to sell Bitcoin for euros and receive the amount in your bank account, or convert it into other cryptocurrencies: Ether, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, etc. This last option is useful if you want to continue trading.

You do need to keep in mind something else before you decide how you are going to sell your Bitcoin: any gains made in the selling of cryptocurrencies are taxable in France. Tax applies when a person converts their digital currency into fiat money (for example, euros). Individuals are not liable for any tax on realised gains provided those gains do not exceed €305 over the year.

On the other hand, exchanges between cryptocurrencies are not taxed. This means that if you sell Bitcoin for another digital currency, you are not liable for any tax on the conversion.

Coinhouse provides a quick sale of your Bitcoin by bank transfer

You now know how to sell Bitcoin and you know what currency you want to convert it into.

However, you should bear in mind that you should sell Bitcoin as soon as possible once you have made the decision to sell. And with reason – BTC is highly volatile. You need to act fast to get the gains you want from any sale because its price can quickly roll over. A simple and fast process will be vital to you.

This is exactly what Coinhouse offers when you want to sell Bitcoin for euros. On Coinhouse, you can make use of the fast bank transfer feature: it only takes a few minutes. Of course, you will need to have an account open on the platform and your bank account linked to it so that the money goes to the right place.

Our services make a difference.

When to sell your Bitcoin

Knowing how to sell your Bitcoin is one thing. But knowing when to sell your Bitcoin is quite another!

How to figure out the right time to sell Bitcoin

The age-old saying of “buy low, sell high” comes from the stock market and it is true for cryptocurrencies. This strategy is a no-brainer – the right time to sell your Bitcoin is when it is at its highest. The problem is that, in reality, it is not so simple for one very important reason: no one ever knows when the price of an asset is at its peak and is about to go down and lose money.

As a result, it is vital that you closely monitor Bitcoin’s price to decide when it is the right moment for you to sell. And do not forget to sell quickly (which is quick AND easy using Coinhouse’s bank transfer option).

The real answer to “when to sell your Bitcoin?” depends on what your goals are. The right time is when you think you have gained enough or lost enough with your portfolio of cryptocurrencies. Or when you come up with some plan and want to sell Bitcoin to finance it (for example, buying a car, taking a holiday).

If you trade, when should you sell your Bitcoin?

If you trade, as in you swap cryptocurrencies to benefit from rising or falling prices, your strategy will be different. In this case, you need to be on the look out for trends – which can be anything but obvious with such a volatile crypto like Bitcoin – to judge the best time to sell Bitcoin. But you also have to keep a close eye on how other cryptocurrencies on your watchlist are trading.
One good way involves analysing Bitcoin’s movements over recent months and years, to get a good idea of the macro trends. This could show you that the price has scarcely changed over six months and there is a chance that it will remain stable for the time being. Nonetheless, this is not 100% fool proof because Bitcoin’s price can turn on a sixpence and sharply rise or fall. Accordingly, you need to pay attention and check a myriad of indicators (such as the relative strength index or moving average – RSI and MA respectively)… and have confidence in your trading platform!
