The benefits and risks of investing in cryptocurrency

Understanding the basics of cryptocurrency.


Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual tokens that use cryptography to secure their transactions and control the creation of new entities. Cryptocurrencies are usually purchased with “fiat” or traditional currencies like dollars or euros. However, they can also be purchased with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. First, you need to set up a digital wallet to store your coins to buy cryptocurrencies. You can then buy tokens on cryptocurrency exchanges using fiat currency or other cryptocurrencies.


Cryptocurrencies are encoded data strings representing units of currency. The peer-to-peer network known as the blockchain monitors and organizes cryptocurrency transactions such as purchases, sales, and transfers, and also acts as a secure ledger for transactions. Through the use of cryptography, cryptocurrencies can function both as money and as an accounting system.
