Cryptocurrency is a digital asset or a virtual currency that exchanges assets and establishes sound financial transactions. They are alternatives of a currency and are considered to be a digital currency worldwide. Furthermore, cryptocurrency transactions are secured through strong cryptography.

One of the most striking features of a cryptocurrency is that there is no central authority controlling its issuance and regulation. It is completely decentralized and mainly works through a distributed ledger technology, i.e., digital data is shared and reproduced in different geographical areas with mutual consensus. Then it is rolled out in multiple countries, institutions, or on another cryptocurrency site.

In Cryptocurrency terms, a blockchain verifies the authenticity of cryptocurrency coins. Besides, the mining process validates the transactions. Cryptocurrency always meets the following criterion;

  • A shared authority is maintained through mutual consensus.
  • A single system maintains the data of all the units and their owners.
  • Cryptography that proves ownership of the cryptocurrency units.
  • Exchange of individual cryptographic units that allow cryptocurrency transactions.

Purpose of Cryptocurrency

Mainly cryptocurrency allows digital currency transactions between peers without the intervention of a third party influence or fraud or any other constraints. An individual's cryptocurrency units are fully secure online. Besides, they can use it to exchange pricey assets in countries where the status of cryptocurrency is legal.

The virtual assets that one buys or exchanges online keep on increasing in value over time. So cryptocurrency prices prediction, in general, goes up.  Sometimes cryptocurrency is also compared to gold in value like when you buy gold and save it, its' worth keeps on escalating with passing years. The same goes for cryptocurrency. You buy the coins/ units, save them, and over time their worth multiplies in numbers. Furthermore, you can verify this fact through the cryptocurrency prices chart.

How does it Work?

One might think that cryptocurrency is highly technological and complicated. A common person neither can understand it nor has anything to do with it but let us decode how cryptocurrency exchange works.

After you decide on which cryptocurrency to buy, you request a transaction. The transaction request is forwarded to a system of computers known as nodes. Nodes apply algorithms to verify the transaction and the user account and status. When the transaction is verified, it is piled up with other transactions, and a larger block of data is shared with mutual consensus. Also, the blockchain of information is everlasting and unchangeable. After the verification and the creation of the blockchain, the transaction is complete.

History of Cryptocurrency

In 1983, David Chaum, an American cryptographer, received electronic money named 'eCash' for the first time. Then after the development of an electronic platform for payment involving cryptography, namely 'Digicash' was developed, David Chaum implied money exchange via it. Digicash made digital currency exchange undiscoverable by the government, banks, or the third party.

In 1998, an electronic cash system was introduced by Wei Dai named 'B Money'. Sometime later, another electronic currency called Bit Gold was introduced by Nick Szabo.

In 2009, the first decentralized cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, came into existence. Followed by Bitcoin, another cryptocurrency, Namecoin, was created in April 2011.

June 2021 was the time when the acceptance of Bitcoin started. El Salvador became the first country to accept crypto as legal. They did it after passing a bill in their Legislative Assembly submitted by the president. 62 votes passed the bill, and 22 people voted against it. August 2021 was the time when Cuba accepted Bitcoin as a legal tender.

China is the largest cryptocurrency market. In September 2021, it declared all crypto transactions illegal.
