Cryptocurrency Market Overview :
A cryptocurrency is a new digital means of exchange that uses encryption to secure the procedures involved in conducting transactions and generating units. It uses cryptography (the art of writing or solving codes) for security. Cryptocurrencies are a subclass of digital currencies and, as such, have no physical illustration. They could be used for online or in-person transactions with any traders who accept them, which can be usually conducted via mobile payment from a digital wallet. The ‘Bitcoin’ is the prominent example of the cryptocurrency. In terms of whether the transaction is legitimate, every single transaction that is been done through bitcoin is put into what is called as blockchain. The “Blockchain” is the key feature for the bitcoin and an open ledger so anybody can look at it and every single transaction is noted in this open ledger.
The growth of the global cryptocurrency market is mainly driven by factors such as easier transfer funds between two parties in a transaction, less time required to complete the process, highly secure compared to other transactions, and minimal/negligible processing fee for transaction. However, lack of awareness among users and concern with the rate at which a cryptocurrency can be swapped for another currency varying widely are the major challenges involved in the global cryptocurrency market. Moreover, adoption of bitcoin as a cryptocurrency, and introduction of cryptocurrency in order to implement more secure and flexible financial services in cryptocurrency are the aspects that are expected to open up new growth opportunities over the years to come.
