Cryptocurrency is a digital currency, like bitcoin. Crypto means hidden. Bitcoin uses block chain technology to be created and if you lose it, it is gone forever. There is a story in this book about someone who buried a hard drive with bitcoin on it – now worth $127 million and it is totally missing. There are definitely pluses and minuses on using cryptocurrency so it will be interesting to see how things evolve.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
