"A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions and to control the creation of additional units of the currency."
Cryptocurrencies are all over news and media these days and with good reason, they have been showing some astonishing gains and show no signs of slowing down. With the growth of the internet and it's greater and greater integration into our daily lives it makes sense a didgital currency may be the future of all online payments.
Bitcoin has been the big name in cryptocurrencies since the start but it is not the only currency out there. Ethereum is making big gains and with it's superiour technology and the media and investor hype it could overtake Bitcoin at some point.
We are all on the edge of something exciting, whether it crashes and burns or becomes the future of transactions is still to be seen but the people who are on the right side of that bet are sure to make a lot of money.
