What is Bitcoin or a cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrencies, or crypto-gatekeepers, are digital currencies which, as a rule, allow values to be exchanged by linking many computers in the worlwide web and applying certain peer-to-peer techniques , For the Bitcoin, for example, the following applies: The entire bookings are now processed via this Bitcoin network using the open source software and in the heart of the network - the Blockchain - deposited or noted there. There, all transactions are stored and thus the individual bitcoin values of a certain bitcoin address - and thus of your owner - are assigned.
