Cryptocurrencies for Beginners – Part 1

What are cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that circulate on the blockchain.

Some cryptocurrencies are tokens and others are coins.

Most of the currencies are connect with a specific project and you can only use them in that blockchain.

Example: Post office use stamps to deliver letters in this case the Post Office is the Blockchain and the stamp is the cryptocurrency.

What is the blockchain?

A blockchain is originally block chain and is a growing list of records called blocks that are linked using cryptography.

Therefore each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block a timestamp and transaction data. 

As a result, design a blockchain is resistant against modification of the data.

What is Bitcoin? Why people like Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. 

In other words, It is a decentralised digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.

Therefore people like Bitcoin because bitcoin was the first blockchain to be created and is the stronger blockchain in the world that’s why everyone calls bitcoin the digital gold but at the same time because the price of bitcoin have a strong influence in the price of the others cryptocurrencies.

For example the price of the Unites States of America currency, the American dollar is supported by the massive amount of gold that USA have inside of Fort Knox. The same logic is for the Altcoins, they are supported by Bitcoin.
