Today cryptocurrencies (Buy Crypto) have become a global phenomenon known to most people.
While many have now heard all about Cryptocurrency, many people still think its still somehow geeky and not understood because it never occurs to them that there are other forms of currency other than “real money” which they can see and spend. However, banks, governments, and many companies are aware of its importance.
In 2016, you‘ll have a hard time finding a major bank, a big accounting firm, a prominent software company or a government that did not research cryptocurrencies, publish a paper about it or start a so-called blockchain-project. (Take our blockchain courses to learn more about the blockchain)
Few people know, but cryptocurrencies emerged as a side product of another invention.
Satoshi Nakamoto, the unknown inventor of Bitcoin, the first and still most important cryptocurrency, never intended to invent a currency. There had been many attempts in previous years to create a digital currency but all had failed because they did not have an understanding about blockchain technology which was only discovered and researched as a side effect of the initial BitCoin project.
