This page is designed to help novices in crypt currencies better understand the options and currencies they are currently trading. For beginners, we understand that there are too many simplistic explanations, but we all need to start somewhere, and at Privat.Cash we believe that the wider crypt currencies are accepted, the better!
Cryptocurrencies (also called crypto coins and altocoins) are a digital or virtual form of currency, or digital money if you prefer. Usually they are called coins, for example in Bitcoin or Litecoin, in fact they are not physical coins at all, although you can print QRC private key codes that represent the ownership of a coin or series of coins… more about this when we define wallets later in this article.
The first real cryptovolta started in 2009, it was Bitcoin (symbol: BTC) and is probably the gold standard for cryptovolta. So much so that most of today’s media and the uninitiated call the whole kingdom of Bitcoin cryptovalue. Spend some time after the exchange (see our exchange page) and it will become clear to you that for all active purposes, the value of other cryptovalues tends to fluctuate directly in line with the BTC market value, the larger the volume, such as Litecoin (symbol: LTC) acts as if they are tied to the BTC.
In fact, there are about 4,900+ active cryptovoltaic currencies, although most of them have little or no market cravings, and some have names that are difficult to take seriously, such as SexCoin and BBQcoin. If you like to trade kopecks, you might like to explore some of them, we at Privat.Cash tend to stick to the major currencies listed below, although we always evaluate beginners.
The creation of these currencies and related transactions, such as payment for goods and services, as well as market transactions in other currencies, both digital and non-digital, are done through an open peer-to-peer, decentralized Internet structure. This means that there is no governing body such as the U.S. Federal Reserve that sets policy or controls the flow of cryptov currencies, they are largely protected from the unfortunate monetary policies and regulations that have devastated economies around the world. Cryptographic correspondence is a transborder, not owned by any government, not owned by any organization, not controlled by any authority other than the founding organization, and a publicly published layout of the scheme used to launch and distribute the currency. To protect against inflation, most cryptov currencies are designed to issue a unit of currency over a specified period of time with a limit on what amount will eventually be issued.
The strength of the cryptological technology used, as well as the logic and strategy of overall currency reversal, are of paramount importance in determining the value and potential success of individual currencies.
Of course, this is an oversimplification, but it serves our purposes in this article.
Now let’s take a look at the leading cryptov currencies that we at Privat.Cash offer you to get acquainted with, not so much by the way, they have the largest volume and liquidity.
Bitcoin (symbol: BTC)
Litecoin is a peer-to-peer internet currency that allows making instant payments to anyone in the world. It is based on the Bitcoin protocol, but differs from Bitcoin in that it can be effectively extracted using consumer-grade equipment. Litecoin provides faster transaction confirmation (2.5 minutes on average) and uses a hard to remember encryption-based performance verification algorithm to run on ordinary computers and graphics processors that most people already have. It is planned that the Litecoin network will produce 84 million currency units.
One of Litecoin’s goals was to provide a mining algorithm that could run at the same time on the same equipment that was used to harvest the bitcoins. As the number of specialized ASICs for Bitcoin increases, Litecoin continues to meet these goals. It is unlikely that an ASIC will be developed for Litecoin until the currency is widely used.
