Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that are created and stored electronically. They aren’t controlled by any central government or bank. Instead, cryptocurrency transactions are verified by a network of computers scattered all over the world that compete with one another to solve complex mathematical problems to create new cryptocurrency units and earn rewards for doing so.

Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency that uses cryptographic encryption techniques to regulate its use and generate its release. Bitcoin has been around since 2009 when it was first introduced by an anonymous programmer or group of programmers under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.

At present, there are thousands of cryptocurrencies belonging to about eight distinct types/categories: utility, exchange, payment, security, stablecoins, decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and asset-backed tokens. The most commonly used cryptocurrencies generally fall under the utility, payment, security, and stablecoin categories.
