Cryptocurrencies are primarily used to make payments from one person to another, without intermediaries such as banks or governments that impose conditions, fees, and taxes.
Compared to regular money, cryptocurrencies can be sent highly quickly (minutes or even seconds) to any part of the world, with meager commissions compared to the bank ones.
But up to a massive adoption as payment instruments - like money - because their price fluctuates quite a lot and because they have excellent growth prospects in the medium and long term, cryptocurrencies are being used now like stocks/investments on the stock exchange, in other words, most buy them for the speculative purpose, that of generating profit.
Also, not being an official currency, even if you have a garnishment on your account, no one can withhold from the cryptocurrency value you hold.
Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency and was created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, still anonymous untill today.
The value of Bitcoin began to rise from a few cents in 2010 to almost USD 20,000 in 2017. It currently fluctuates around USD 9-10,000. According to several mathematical algorithms, it is expected to exceed values of several hundred thousand euros/units in a few years.
Euros, dollars, pounds, Turkish lira, RON, CASH, cheese, smackers, stash... money you have in your bank accounts or under your mattress. The money you find in last season's clothes and you get excited.
Here's a bit tricky. It's kind of a folder (not that usual file folder, the digital one) in care toata lumea care participa la tranzactii detine cate o copie, toata lumea vede si are acces la toate informatiile si nu se poate modifica ceva decat cu acordul a minim jumatate plus 1.
Leaving the joke aside, it is a revolutionary technology, as the Internet was in 1994, and it is the technology you will soon see in accounting, cadastre, automotives and, above all, in government, the date when the vote will be taken on the blockchain will also be the date when the last death on the voting lists will be recorded.
At present, much of the databases are under the dome of state institutions and banks. These institutions can manipulate them in their favor, without seeing them often. Sometimes we find out, we get a little bit riled up, a brawl comes and often goes out faster than it started.
Through blockkhain and decentralization, power and databases are no longer in the hands of a single power, but are distributed among all participants. Everything is transparent and decisions are taken by majority vote, to say so.
We want to be very clear that these new technologies do not incite anarchy, but only optimization, transparency and better management of resources.
