What is Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is a form of virtual or digital assets that can be used for monetary purposes. Crypto doesn’t rely on banks. This economy functions on a network distributed across many computer servers and uses cryptography to secure and verify transactions, existing only electronically. The peer-to-peer aspect enables anyone to send and receive payments from anywhere. Because of the advanced coding involved in holding cryptocurrency, it makes it nearly impossible to counterfeit. Cryptocurrency is an attractive investment because of its ability to diversify one’s investment portfolio way beyond the usual publicly traded assets, and many investors believe crypto will continue to increase in value.
