Let’s Know about Cryptocurrency

A cryptocurrency, often known as a crypto-currency or crypto, is a form of digital money that works as a medium of exchange over a computer network and is not backed or maintained by a central authority such as a government or bank.

Individual currency ownership records are held in a digital ledger, which is a computerized database that uses strong encryption to secure transaction records, control coin creation, and verify ownership transfers.

Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that is not issued by a government and does not exist in physical form (like paper money). Cryptocurrencies, unlike central bank-issued digital money, usually use decentralized control (CBDC).

If a cryptocurrency is minted or created prior to release, or if it is issued by a single issuer, it is considered centralized. When implemented with decentralized governance, each cryptocurrency acts as a public financial transaction database using distributed ledger technology, most commonly a blockchain.
