The site’s aim and purpose

BitPinas is a Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Website. It aims to

  • Provide news and insights about bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and blockchain with a focus on the Philippines
  • Guides and Information about Cryptocurrencies
  • Information blockchain projects and initiatives in the country
  • Gives information on how and what we can do with bitcoin and cryptocurrency in our everyday life

The blog’s main tagline is “Useful Cryptocurrency & Blockchain Information for Every Filipino”. We aim to make sure our articles are clear and concise. We understand that the initial cryptocurrency audience mostly comes from a financial or technical background. But we also want to bring this information to everyone so that we can help in spreading bitcoin and cryptocurrency awareness in the country.

At Bitpinas, we’re just happy to share correct and positive information on blockchain/crypto space. We don’t want Filipinos to be victims of fraud involving crypto, and we strive to let people know that there’s a world beyond cryptocurrency prices, which is the blockchain.

And that we can invest in crypto ourselves, no need for someone else to do it for us.
