What is Cryptocurrency and why should you care

In short, cryptocurrency is the future and if you chose to ignore it pretty soon you will become extinct like dinosaurs. Not to mention that you will fail to maintain and possibly increase your net value.

And I am serious about it.

Cryptocurrency is sometimes called digital money because it was invented to replace fiat money (currency without intrinsic value established as money by government regulation). It is is designed to use digital cryptography and Internet in order to be secure, easy to use and, in ideal case, anonymous.

The first cryptocurrency was Bitcoin, created in 2009 and considered by many to be digital gold, but many alternative digital coins (called altcoins) are giving it a good run for it’s money now.

How it all works, what differentiates different digital coins, can cryptocurrencies be trusted and and many other questions you might have, will be explained on this blog in simple terms.

Let the future begin.
