How to Get Free Bitcoins?
Bitcoin is a payment system implemented as opensource software in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, developer. Payments in the system are recorded in a public register using its own unit of account, which is also called Bitcoin. Payments operate in peer-to-peer without a single administrator (such as a state or banking organization), which led the US Treasury to appoint the Bitcoin virtual currency as a decentralized. Although its status currency is contested, the media often refer to as a Bitcoin crypto-currency or digital currency.
Bitcoins are created as a reward for the work of payment processing in which users offer their power calculation to verify and record the payment in the "public book."
There they are calling miners, individuals or companies that engage in this activity in exchange for transaction costs to create new bitcoins.
Besides mining, bitcoins can be obtained in exchange for paper money, products or services. Users can send and receive electronic bitcoins for a transaction amount using optional software portfolio on a personal computer, a mobile device or through a web application.
The symbol of bitcoin is BTC.
Currently (October 2014), the value is 1 BTC = 300 euros (price varies daily, upwards and downwards).
To begin, open a Bitcoin wallet on Coinbase (5 euros offered for register)
This wallet can be linked to your bank account (SEPA transfert) to buy bitcoins or recover gains by converting BTC.

What the mining? the mining is the process of using hardware to calculate hashes. Simply, you rent a portion of the power of your computer (CPU and GPU). The power calculations are displayed in hash per second (h/s) or rather in Kh/s (kilohash), MH/s (megahash), GH/s (gigahash) ou TH/s (terahash).
Some sites after a free trial period (or longer) allow mining or rent space to mining on specialized servers. Expenses for rent power storage should be considered as investments because the return will be greater than the expense!
