What Is Cryptocurrency

Bitcoin, invented in 2009 by the anonymous genius Satoshi Nakamoto was the first cryptocurrency to exist, introducing us to a new money system that gives freedom and independence back to the people. Crypto uses technologies such as cryptography, blockchain and encryption to create a trustless payment network that is not owned by an individual or company but instead owned equally by everyone giving you back control over your wealth.

neutral

Neutral

Neutral means, it is your money and you should be able to use it how you see fit. A neutral system of money is unbiased, it should not care who the sender or the recipient is, what the purpose is and should only care about getting the transaction from ‘a’ to ‘b’. This is not a new concept and was already how the world worked for thousands of years up to the current finical system.

public

Public

Public is the idea that everything is verifiable on the network by everyone else — which means no one can cheat. All transactions are tracked on the blockchain, which is similar to a bank’s list of customer funds going in and out. Unlike banking, the blockchain is distributed to all users of the network open for inspection that can be as easy as running a software to know if a transaction has happened or not.

censorship-resistance

Censorship-resistance

Censorship-resistance means, if somebody wants me to stop sending money to someone — they can’t! The reason why, is that crypto-currencies like Bitcoin are decentralized meaning any two people can send Bitcoin to each other without the involvement of a bank, government or other third party. You now have the freedom to hold onto your wealth that no else controls and no one can take from you.

open

Open

Open means anyone with internet can access, participate or even contribute without authorisation, without anybody checking your ID or national card — simply open. Approximately 2.5 billion people across the world cannot access banking, why? Well because the current financial system excludes people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, and other discriminatory criteria.

borderless

Borderless

Crypto-currencies have transformed money into information that has no physical form and does not exist in any one place. Instead money now exists everywhere, much like the internet it has no borders creating a truly international phenomenon. It doesn’t matter where you are, it doesn’t matter where you live or where you travel to, the blockchain is already there and available for you to access freely.

WARNING

Please be aware, centralized exchanges have a long history of disappearing with people’s money, having millions of user funds stolen, declining withdrawals and suspending accounts. These risks apply to all centralized exchanges however some have very bad reputation including Binance, Bitfenex and HBTC just to name a few. When sending money to a centralized exchange you are giving them full control over your money with no guarantee you will ever get your money back. These companies are well known for SCAMMING people so only be willing to put money in a centralized exchange you are willing to lose. Developers around the world are volunteering their time and skills to provide us with functional decentralized exchanges as a trustless alternative such as AtomicDEX and more.
