For many years, banks and insurance agencies have employed different traditional methods that have yielded great results. However, these institutions have found themselves in a society that is developing at a very first rate. Most of bank transactions before took place over the counter which made bank halls and ATM machine witness long queues and burden of work. The situation made going to the bank look like a burden.

What digital currency

Digital currency, commonly known as cryptocurrency is the topic on every one’s lips today. This subject has hit the news headlines since it was innovated. Though many people have dealt or accessed information on cryptocurrency, very few understand what it means. Lets looks closely as this currency.

Cryptocurrency is seen as currency of the future. It is a form of currency that is digital in nature. Digital currency is a currency that can only be used online. To understand what cryptocurrency is, get these words;

#1 blockchain technology

Blockchain technology can be perhaps described as the internet of the future. It is a continuous list of records called blocks that are secured using cryptography. Each block has a pointer called a hash pointer that connects to the previous block. Cryptography is simply the study of secure communication.  Blockchains are controlled by peer to peer network which is a secure communication network between two individuals over the internet.

#2 peer-to-peer network

P2p network is a network that partitions tasks equally between peers. In P2P network, every member if equal, regardless of the amount of contribution they give towards the network.

Cryptocurrency uses blockchain technology to secure transaction.

How was cryptocurrency started?

The person behind this new form of currency remains a mystery though he or they are known under the acronym Satoshi Nakamoto. The idea was for creating cryptocurrency was originally just to find a way of making peer to peer transactions without a third party. This led to the creation cryptocurrency.

Blockchain technology is a decentralized system and so consensus was a big issue. In liquid currency, all transactions are handled by a single entity that stands in as middlemen. With such a system, acquiring full consensus is not hard. What about a system that is decentralized?  This question let of consensus let to the creation of Bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency.

How are cryptocurrency made

Physical currency is made by printing. Traditional currency like gold and silver was made through mining and carried to the bank to exchange for paper money. Cryptocurrency are made though a process called mining. Mining cryptocurrency involves solving complex problems that are mathematical in nature using computer. To mine, one needs to have a computer, a working network and a will. A pool of miner come together to compete, the one who solves a block get rewards sent to their account called, digital wallets. Each block mined has a certain amount of cryptos to it and they are added to a block.

Mining cryptocurrency is a difficult task that can take an individual over a year to finish. The best option it to join a pool and receive a membership registration, when you solve together it is quicker and you share the reward.

Other means of acquiring crypto currency is to buy them using money in your bank account. You can also get them from a friend or buy using sites that exchange.


Cryptocurrency is becoming more and more common today. It is being used by online businesses as a currency for transaction. Investing in cryptocurrency can be likened to forex exchange and it provides great opportunities for making wealth. Cryptocurrency is a global currency and no country can claim ownership. There are countries that have not yet embraced this technology and do not allow the use of cryptocurrency.
