What is a Ledger?

Ledger Nano is a Bitcoin wallet on a smartcard device, small format and low weight. Comfortable and simple to use, you connect it directly to a USB port to manage your account, protect your bitcoins and make safe payments

When you own bitcoins, storing and protecting them is your own responsibility. The Ledger Nano is accessible to all, and secured thanks to highest banking industry standards. Your account can be backed up and restored if your Nano is lost or stolen. You can use your Ledger Nano on any computer, PC, Mac or Linux. Anybody can install and use it without technical skills.

Hardware wallets are probably the most robust form of security you can have for your Bitcoins or any other cryptocurrency. They allow you to send and receive Bitcoins on any computer, even one that is compromised with malware, with the knowledge that your transaction will still go through as intended.

The way the hardware wallets achieve maximum security is by storing your private key and signing your Bitcoin transactions offline so someone trying to hack your wallet remotely won’t be able to do so. Most hardware wallets also use a second screen/device to verify actions on your wallet such as signing transaction. This way, if a hacker gains control over your computer, he still can’t do any harm since he requires access to the physical device connected to your computer as well.

What is Bitvavo?

Bitvavo is a cryptocurrency exchange based in the Netherlands. It is probably the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the Netherlands but certainly one of the cheapest with the most options.

Since Bitvavo focuses mainly on the convenience for the users, it is also suitable for less experienced traders and novice traders. Many other crypto exchanges can be a bit intimidating with green and red charts and green and red lines, but Bitvavo keeps it simple and understandable for everyone.

You can buy your favourite cryptocurrencies with iDeal payment and keep it at your wallet on the site if you prefer. Of course you can also buy cryptocurrency for your own wallet.

A big advantage is that you can also exchange your cryptocurrencies to euros and have that transferred back to your bankaccount. This is an option you do not see very often on an exchange: on most of them you can buy with an iDeal payment, but getting it back in Fiat (euros) is a rare option.


Use the code (98589B5FAD) and trade the first 1000 euros without any fees.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is some kind of Japanese green tea, in most definitions of the term. It is in fact green tea leaves that are smashed into powder. But not all green tea leaves will be considered Matcha: they are shade-grown for a couple of weeks. The shade-grown aspect is needed for theanine and caffeine producing.

Traditionally the matcha tea focusses on the preparation and serving as a hot tea, but nowadays there are a lot of matcha products available. You can buy the powder and make your own tea but it is also available as coffee or ice cream, etc.
