A cryptocurrency is a digital internet-based, virtual currency medium of exchange which uses cryptography to secure, conduct and verify transactions as well as to control the creation of new units of a particular cryptocurrency. Using the blockchain technology to gain decentralization and transparency, cryptocurrencies are limited block entries in a database with a very secure complex system that cannot be altered in anyone's favour and if that is to happen the system will neutralize and protect other transactions.

In the 90's some innovative individuals and companies once created some digital currencies but due security and loopholes in the systems the digital currencies failed. In the new millenium, precisely in 2009 an anonymous developer known as Satoshi Nakamoto created a blockchain based cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. This new currency is the leading currency in the cryptocurrency market in terms of market value, mined coins, perfomance, stability and more. Bitcoin however has inspired thousands of other new alternative cryptocurrencies to be created in the quest to dominate the new age future currency, but out of the thousands new currencies many of them have failed due to various reasons as scams, fraud, insecure etc...

Cryptocurrencies are your traditional type of currency known as FIAT, theycan be traded just as the USD, POUND, EURO, YEN etc.., with a cryptocurrency you can shop online and also buy goods and services offline. You can also invest using a cryptocurrency and even keep it in a savings account to earn interest.

How do you get a cryptocurrency you may ask? Sure, this is a very important question and to answer I will start from the top using Bitcoin. So after creating the blockchain and everything needed for this currency to function, the process of creating a Bitcoin involved using a computer to start a process called mining to create a coin. So evry cryptocurrency can only be created by mining using computers, not the old fashion way of printing paper. Each cryptocurrency has a unique address that is kept securely in a wallet as the address allows you to receive and send cryptocurrency to merchants and your peers, to understand more on wallets go here.

There is now tonnes of information available today on the internet about cryptocurrencies including information about each cryptocurrency. I will not be able to put all the necessary information here but I will let you visit the websites with credible, useful and good information about cryptocurrencies.
