What Is a Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies. They are created using digital cryptography to process transactions and create new “coins.”

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are popular because they are decentralized. In other words, banks and governments don’t control access to the currency. In contrast, fiat currencies are more easily manipulated by governments and banking institutions. There are thousands of alternatives to Bitcoin that are called altcoins.

Cryptocurrencies like Litecoin, Monero, Ripple  and Dash have improved upon Bitcoin’s original model or created differences in their currencies to support niche uses.

Fiat currency is money that a government has declared to be legal tender and is the regular money you know.

What Is Blockchain?

If you’ve heard of cryptocurrency, chances are you’ve also heard the term “blockchain,” since its technology is what makes cryptocurrencies unique and valuable.

In simplest terms, blockchain is a method of storing all Bitcoin transactions in a ledger that’s attached to each and every coin(When we use Bitcoin as an example, for other altcoins it works the same).

From a digital perspective, each block lists transaction details like dates, times, amounts, and traders involved. All of the blocks together are known as a chain, which functions like a publicly-accessible, if encrypted, database.

Blockchain gives structure to the Bitcoin ledger. The ledger is encoded by cryptography so that its contents are insulated from hackers( big slaes point !!).

The use of cryptography also makes it very difficult to almost impossible to forge coins. Pricing the Cryptocurrency Market Cryptocurrencies are a high-risk trading instrument since they are much newer than fiat currencies. That makes their value difficult to predict. Cryptocurrencies may be appropriate for traders who are looking for a high-risk, potentially high-reward trading instrument.
