I mostly buy stuff on Ebay since Amazon and Bestbuy don’t offer worldwide shipping, I live in southern Asia.
I have an account with my local public bank denominated in US Dollar to make my payments to Ebay. However, it is very hard to get USD in this country as rich people have all of it. If I used a local currency account instead, the bank would charge a 10% commission for each international payment for currency exchange and cross border fee.
Is there a Bitcoin solution for this?
Since the blockchain is stored in a distributed database, is it possible that one block can be lost? Then it would be impossible to link future blocks to previous blocks.
How many copies of the blockchain are there?
