Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency is an encrypted decentralised digital or virtual currency which can be used for making transactions. It uses cryptography to secure the transactions and to manage or control the creation of new units of a currency. In 2009, Bitcoin became the first decentralised cryptocurrency and has led the way for several more to launch. In past few years, cryptocurrencies like Litecoin, Ethereum, Zcash, Dash, Ripple, Gridcoin, DigitalNote, Blackcoin, Dogecoin, among others came into existence. The legal status varies from country to country. As per Wikipedia, there are more than 700+ cryptocurrencies available. As far as India is concerned, the government is in the process to make Bitcoin legal in the country. As of June 2017 total market capitalisation of cryptocurrencies is bigger than $100 Bn and record high daily volume is larger than $6 Bn.
