What is Cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that is encrypted and decentralized, which means it is not controlled by any single entity. Cryptocurrency can be exchanged online for goods and services. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized networks based on blockchain technology, a distributed ledger enforced by a network of computers. Cryptocurrency is created through a process called mining, in which computers solve complex mathematical equations to verify transactions on a blockchain network.
