Saving in Bitcoin or buying Bitcoin is a great way to hedge against inflation of fiat currencies, and employing an investment strategy such as Dollar-cost-averaging (DCA) instead of buying Bitcoin with a lump sum, is a smart way to protect your asset against the price volatility of Bitcoin, thereby protecting you from loss, long term.
On Bitnob, you can create a Bitcoin savings plan with as little as $1. You can choose daily, weekly, or monthly automated savings, and you can activate your plan to run for 3 months, 6 months or 1 year. Fun part? You can have multiple active plans and save towards different projects.

You can withdraw from your savings plan 1 day after your plan has matured.
9. How is my plan funded?
Your USD wallet funds your Bitcoin savings plan.
10. What is a lock period?
A lock period is a period in which you have instructed the app to automatically debit your USD wallet to fund your Bitcoin savings plan(s). Simply put, if your lock period is three months, it means that you have an active plan for three months, and the app will always debit your USD wallet for three months.
11. Why is my return showing red in my investment balance even though BTC has gone up?
The returns in your investment balance may be red even if the price of BTC has gone up if the current price of BTC is still lower than your average BTC price point of purchase. This turns green when the current price of BTC becomes higher than your average BTC price point of purchase.
