What is Crypto, Blockchain, and Digital Assets?
Cryptocurrency, Digital Assets, and Blockchain Technology are among the most innovative and disruptive technologies in the FinTech industry. These cutting-edge solutions are changing the way financial transactions are conducted, enabling secure and decentralised transactions, and paving the way for a new era of financial innovation.
Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual tokens that use cryptography to secure and verify transactions. They operate independently of a central bank and are decentralised, meaning that they are not controlled by any single entity. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others are disrupting traditional finance and are changing the way people store and transfer value.
Digital Assets, on the other hand, are any type of asset that is stored and traded in a digital form. This includes cryptocurrencies but also includes other forms of digital assets such as digital art, collectables, and virtual real estate. Digital assets are an increasingly popular investment option and are revolutionising the way people own, trade and transfer assets.
Blockchain Technology is the underlying technology behind cryptocurrencies and digital assets. It is a secure and decentralised ledger that records transactions across a network of computers. Blockchain technology provides a secure and transparent way of recording transactions, enabling secure and fast transactions without the need for intermediaries.
