What is Cryptocurrency and how to buy them?

World is evolving rapidly and so is the mode of exchange. Each country has their own currency but when trade is to be done across borders, then there is no common currency and so transaction has to be leveraged upon Dollars which is again the currency of US.

Digital technologies have virtually connected the world via internet. Blockchain is one such technology through which decentralized digital currency or virtual currency has came into existence. These virtual currencies are nothing but timestamp based cryptographic identities generated using very distinct algorithm. These algorithms are very secure and keeps detailed traces of each transaction within Blockchain ledgers. This has made economists and technology experts rely on virtual currencies generated by Blockchain technology. As these currencies are generated digitally using cryptographic algorithms, they are also known as Cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency that came into existence from 2009. After its worldwide acceptance various other virtual currencies were launched with little enhancement over bitcoin. Till the end of year 2017, there were more than 100 such virtual currencies in existence out of which few popular ones are Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, IOTA and BitcoinPower.
