Can we use Bit coin as equity for company shares. How do we exchange the bit coin for real money the banks will accept?

  • You convert property to money by a process that is referred to as "selling". You sell bitcoins by going to a company that specializes in bringing buyers and sellers together such as coinbase, gemini, bitstamp, or kraken. Jun 11, 2017 at 6:16
  • I'm not sure what the point of using Bitcoin as equity shares would be? But you can convert Bitcoin to fiat easily: gemini.com coinbase.com https://xcoins.io Jun 11, 2017 at 10:10

As far as I understand your intention, the answer is no. A Bitcoin represents a bitcoin, and not your company or a share thereof it.

What you CAN do is create either a crypto currency yourself and sell it as shares, or run a contract on the Ethereum network.

However, I cannot, in good faith, say this is a good idea. You would be better served with a proper crowd-funding campaign or similar, if being listed on an equity exchange is not an option for you.


If you want to use crypto coin as the shares of your company, you can use Ethereum core. It is opensource, you can always use it to create a new crypto with smart contracts. You can use ethereum as some community currency, some type of stock/share auction, online auction, even for selling BTC!!!
