The most famous cryptocurrency was developed in 2009 by developer Satoshi Nakamoto. The payments in the system are recorded in a public ledger using its own unit of account, which is also called cryptocurrency. Payments work peer-to-peer without a central repository or single administrator, which has led the US Treasury to call cryptocurrency a decentralized virtual currency. Although its status as a currency is disputed, media reports often refer as a cryptocurrency or digital currency.
Cryptocurrency are created as a reward for payment processing work in which users offer their computing power to verify and record payments into the public ledger. Called mining, individuals or companies engage in this activity in exchange for transaction fees and newly created cryptocurrencies. Besides mining, cryptocurrencies can be obtained in exchange for fiat money, products, and services. Users can send and receive cryptocurrencies electronically for an optional transaction fee using wallet software on a personal computer, mobile device, or a web application.
Cryptocurrency as a form of payment for products and services has seen growth,and merchants have an incentive to accept the digital currency because fees are lower than the 2-3% typically imposed by credit card processors. The European Banking Authority has warned that cryptocurrency lacks consumer protections. Unlike credit cards, any fees are paid by the purchaser not the vendor. Cryptocurrencies can be stolen and chargebacks are impossible. Commercial use of cryptocurrency is currently small compared to its use by speculators, which has fueled price volatility.
In the future, some digital currencies will certainly continue to rise in value and they are a integral part of the Internet.
