Definition


A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that uses cryptography for security. A cryptocurrency is difficult to counterfeit because of this security feature. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized systems based on blockchain technology, which is a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers. A defining feature of cryptocurrencies is that they are generally not issued by any central authority, rendering them theoretically immune to government interference or manipulation.


 
 

Cryptocurrency Pairs


Cryptocurrency is a type of digital currency that uses encryption technology to create and transfer funds. These are commonly called alt coins or alternative coins. It is more volatile than regular currencies like the USD and the EURO, so it is not a perfect substitute for them. In fact, most users of cryptocurrency trade one cryptocurrency for another, which gives them a better return than if they had left it in their original form.
