Cryptocurrency is a digital currency or asset that relies on encryption technology to transfer value over the Internet. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin operate independently of a banking system and can be used in many countries as a store or exchange of value like cash. The most common use of cryptocurrency is buying and selling goods and services online.
