Just like standard currencies, cryptocurrencies (also known as crypto) are a form of digital currency that can be used as payment and exchanged for goods and services.
Each cryptocurrency is created or issued by a different organisation; a simple comparison would be different casinos issuing their own tokens or casino chips. Cryptocurrencies are only held online and operate using blockchain technology.
Blockchain is a form of decentralised technology that makes use of multiple computers to ensure and manage the integrity of transactions. As there is no central computer or authority that keeps a copy of these transactional records and all records are publicly visible, it makes it effectively impossible for any single person or entity to change the historical transactional data. This makes blockchain technology highly secure and adds to its trustworthiness.
