Bill Gates
Co-founder of Microsoft, American business magnate
Bitcoin is better than currency in that you don’t have to be physically in the same place and, of course, for large transactions, currency can get pretty inconvenient.

What Is a Cryptocurrency?

A cryptocurrency like bitcoin is a virtual currency traded peer-to-peer on a blockchain, independent of centralized authorities like banks and governments. Cryptocurrencies are entirely virtual, so they are not backed by physical commodities and have no intrinsic value.

How Do Cryptocurrencies Work?

Primarily, cryptocurrencies rely on blockchain technology to complete a transaction via an intricate P2P network. Once a transfer request is entered into the network, it is validated by the network and added to a pool of other transactions to create a block of data for the ledger, which is then entered into the existing blockchain. Once the block is successfully added to the chain, the transaction is approved and completed.

Are Cryptocurrencies Safe From Hackers?

Despite their complicated origins, thanks to the sophistication of blockchain technology and the peer-to-peer network for transaction approval, unwarranted disruption by hackers and frauds is exceedingly difficult. The encryption and architecture of blockchain technology is said to be worth more than the currency it handles, as it has application to more forms of data security than just financial trading.

Are There Investment Opportunities with Cryptocurrencies?

Absolutely. Cryptocurrencies have become established investment commodities among major financial institutions and have even been adopted by countries such as Australia and Japan. As with any investment though, there are risks linked to market movements, high volatility and economics.
