    Me and my client want to try it, but I am not sure whether it would be safe. He want to send me money over the payment processor "Bitcoin". Where can I claim the money?

    I don't know where you're from but there are bitcoin atm's available now where you can exchange money for bitcoin and bitcoin for money. Do an evil scientist :) google search and it should lead you in the right direction.

    BitCoin ATMs are expensive. Far far better to get a CoinBase account and work it from there.

    The price of Bitcoin and every other cryptocurrencies can go up and down dramatically! I recommend you ask your friend for USDT, Tether is equal to ~1$ always! So you will not loose your money if Bitcoin price dropped! Just note that In this case if BTC price go Up you will be angry!!! :)

    If you are a beginner, I recommend using the most popular cryptocurrency wallets for payment. One of the most popular in my opinion is the Blockchain wallet. Try it.

    There are a couple of bitcoin payment processors on the market. The bank settlement takes 2-3 days via SWIFT depending where you are based. What is the origin of your business? Some provide escrow features, while others are just enabling you to get the Bitcoin directly. We are building a crypto payment processor too and for example convert all incoming Bitcoin, Ether, Dash etc. into stablecoins like Tether, USDC, and others. In this way, you as a merchant are protected against price volatility, yet you stay digital. That means you now could take the money and pay it forward to pay your suppliers, staff, freelancers etc. Paying with stablecoins just takes seconds and is very cheap in comparison to other services.

    Never accept bitcoin as payment if you are new to Bitcoin.

    Always use alternative.

    Bitcoin is highly unstable nowadays because of fluctuation.
    $100 payment can go down to $80 in seconds.

    Or it can go up to $120 in seconds. I suggest the OP read into Bitcoin. Once you understand the basics, accepting bitcoin is easy, and 100% safe. Just make sure you ask for the BTC first :)

    Ethereum transaction is much faster, you can also use our ITSToken to process payment.

    one profesional way is accept it on kraken (generate recieving address)and directly convert to euro then wire bank for a cost of around 10cent
    to store use a multi asset wallet like coinomi
