Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Bitcoin is a descentralized digital currency developed in 2008. First you choose a wallet application and share your bitcoin address, to be easy to find. Via Bitcoin, you can buy games or pay for hosting, and, unlike paypal, there aren’t many comissions. For more information on how to earn bitcoins, see the official site.
In this article I will show you how to install Bitcoin 0.8.6.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Bitcoin 0.8.6 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the bitcoin package. Like this:
