Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies designed for use as a money—that is, a medium of exchange, store of value, and unit of accounting—within a digital economic system. Cryptographic techniques are used to secure transactions using cryptocurrencies from forms of fraud, counterfeiting, and other attack vectors, as well as control the creation of new units or verify the transfer of assets.
