Cryptocurrency, what's going on in the hype?
In the last few months, most of the sounds your drum heard were called "cryptocurrency" or "blockchain".
"Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap can be. Bitcoin is better than currency because you do not have to physically be in the same place, and of course currency can get pretty uncomfortable for big transactions." - Bill goals on Bitcoin.
Bitcoin, as you might know it, is perhaps the best known cryptocurrency. Some of the biggest names aggressively investing in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be sure the future is bright, or should bytes be?
WHAT IS CRYPTOCURENCY?
Wikipedia refers to a crypto currency as a digital asset that serves as the exchange medium that uses cryptography to secure its transactions, control the creation of additional units, and verify the transfer of assets.
In simpler words, there is a digital entity with a value that can be exchanged as currency.
WHY IS CRYPTOCURRENCY HYPED?
There are many reasons for all the hype, some of which are mentioned in the following:
There is no single central node that manages the database because the database is managed jointly by global computer networks that use the blockchain technologies. It works on a peer-to-peer basis (P2P). Thus, if a single node error gets stuck, the entire system will not be lost. Furthermore, there is no single organization or organization, but all are equally responsible.
Everyone Can Access
About 2.2 billion people have no access to traditional exchange but have access to the Internet. These people find the crypto-currency as the sacred gral of money exchange. In fact, it's so good that every third Kenyan owns a Bitcoin purse. This is partly due to the fact that Kenya's mobile-based microfinance and money transfer service has announced a Bitcoin device.
Exchange rates, transaction fees, interest rates of a country do not bind cryptocurrencies, therefore use at international level is problematic. This saves time and money for companies using cryptocurrencies because they do not have to spend time or money transferring money from one country to another. The universal deployment makes transactions simple.
A combination electronic money system allows you to spend your money. Any other account that you own belongs to the company that provides you this account. Your PayPal account includes, for example, PayPal. If PayPal decides to freeze your assets, it has every right to do so. And he does not have to consult you for that. But with cryptography you are the owner. Only you have the private key and its public key that make up your crypto currency address. If you do not lose it yourself, you may be misled.
No transaction fees

Certain third-party systems charge fees for creating and managing Bitcoin wallets, but the crypto currency exchanges are free of charge as the miners are self-destructed by the network. The transfer fees charged by third-party systems are fairly low (if any). By and large, this is a win-win situation for those who use cryptocurrencies.
