What is a cryptocurrency and how does it relate to blockchain
A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that uses cryptography for security and operates independently of a central bank. Cryptocurrencies are built on blockchain technology, which is a decentralized, distributed ledger that records transactions on multiple computers in a secure and transparent way.
Cryptocurrencies use the blockchain to track and verify transactions, allowing for peer-to-peer transfers without the need for intermediaries like banks. The decentralized and secure nature of blockchain technology makes it well-suited for use in a currency system.
Each cryptocurrency has its own set of rules and protocols, but they all rely on the principles of cryptography and the decentralized nature of the blockchain to provide security, transparency, and immutability.
Bitcoin was the first decentralized cryptocurrency and remains the most well-known and widely used. Other examples of cryptocurrencies include Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin.
