The Crypto Factor…
According to Wikipedia, a “cryptocurrency, crypto-currency, or crypto is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange wherein individual coin ownership records are stored in a ledger existing in a form of a computerized database using strong cryptography to secure transaction records, to control the creation of additional coins, and to verify the transfer of coin ownership.”
Blimey. Breaking that down, here are some key points about cryptocurrencies:
- It typically exists digitally and not in physical form, although it can be transferred to a more traditional banking account -
- It is usually not issued by a central authority -
- It is a decentralised form of currency control separate from the central banking system -
- When a cryptocurrency is minted/created it is commonly acknowledged as centralized -
- When the newly minted cryptocurrency is used with decentralised control, cryptocurrency uses a distributed ledger technology (usually a blockchain) as a public database which records all of the financial transactions -
- There are multiple cryptocurriences available on the market, the most famous currently being Bitcoin & Ethereum -
