Cryptocurrency is a virtual currency that is highly encrypted with methods such as hashing, public-private key pairs, etc. With the popularity of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, the concept of using digital money has become well-known and the public is starting to see the convenience of using this technology.
The first cryptocurrency ever made is Bitcoin. It also has the largest market share. Other than bitcoin, there are many other cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin, Dash, Monero, etc. Cryptocurrency can be used for buying and selling goods, investing in a company/ project (game development for example), donating, etc. Currently, more than 2000 cryptocurrencies exist in the world. Some of these are forks of original bitcoin while others are built from scratch.
The underlying technology behind cryptocurrency is blockchain technology. Blockchain uses a decentralized system with several nodes (computers) that keep the same copy of the blocks. This system ensures that there is no central authority behind the system. So, unlike in paper cash, the government or the central bank has no authority over virtual money or cryptocurrency.
Creating a custom cryptocurrency can make transactions within the blockchain entirely transparent. And, it also helps in cutting down transactional costs that you would otherwise be paying to central authorities like the bank. And, if your business is global, a cryptocurrency could be the answer to fast and reliable transactions.
While the advantages are endless, there is so much room for errors when creating custom cryptocurrencies. So, developers should always be aware of the changing industry trends and innovations to future-proof your business.
When talking about cryptocurrencies, two terms that are frequently mentioned together are coins and tokens. However, these two are not the same thing. Tokens give access to a product or service and are limited to a certain project. For example, Ether is the native token for the Ethereum blockchain. The difference between coins and tokens is that coins can buy tokens. But tokens cannot be used to buy coins.
We also specialize in developing cryptocurrency exchanges to facilitate the trading of cryptocurrencies. These platforms are different from cryptocurrency wallets. Exchanges allow you to trade one type of cryptocurrency to another cryptocurrency or fiat money. For example, with an exchange, you can trade bitcoins for some other altcoins according to the current market value of the two coins. The process is similar to what happens in a traditional financial exchange.
