Conclusively, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have significant advantages over banks in a number of areas, including security, borderless transaction settlement, efficient payment clearance, and lack of dependence on centralized service providers or entities. Although the offshore banking industry is valued at $32 tln and the valuation of the cryptocurrency market remains below half a trillion, the above-mentioned advantages could allow cryptocurrencies to compete against banks across many sectors.
“I’ve been writing about Bitcoin for a long time,” says Bustillos, “and the more I thought about it the more I thought it could be used for our profession.” With the blockchain ledger, she says, “there would never be fake news—you’d always be able to verify that someone published something.

הריפל מבוסס על common shared ledger. כלומר, על מאגר נתונים מבוזר שבו מאוחסן המידע על העסקאות. הפרוטוקול של הריפל מבוסס על קונצנזוס איטרטיבי, מה שמאפשר לו לאשר עסקאות הרבה יותר מהר מהביטקוין והאיתריום שמבוססים על תהליכי כריה (proof of work ו- proof of stake). בריפל האימות של עסקאות מתבצע ע”י Unique Node List (UNL), כשנכון להיום, ריפל מספקת כברירת מחדל רשימה מומלצת, עם “validators” מטעם החברה. עם ריפל הודיעה בחודש מאי האחרון, שכחלק מתוכניתה להפוך למבוזרת יותר, בכוונתה לאפשר לצדדים שלישיים לשמש כ-“validators”. ריפל הודיעה כי ה”validators” יבחרו מבין משתמשים (nodes) שהופיעו מספר רב של פעמים ב-UNLs, כך שעד נובמבר 2018, ריפל (או שום יישות אחרת) לא תחזיק ברב של ה-“validators”. להרחבה בנושא.
Most governments, companies, and people fear and hate what they do not understand. Crypto currency is decentralized, which is why governments and companies hate it.

Cryptocurrencies are not immune to the threat of hacking. In Bitcoin’s short history, the company has been subject to over 40 thefts, including a few that exceeded $1 million in value. Still, many observers look at cryptocurrencies as hope that a currency can exist that preserves value, facilitates exchange, is more transportable than hard metals, and is outside the influence of central banks and governments.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin, as a peer-to-peer (P2P) settlement system, was able to process over $1 bln worth of transactions, and more than $7 bln worth of Bitcoin was traded on a single day.

But investors didn’t get the joke and bought Dogecoin anyway, bringing its market value as high as $400 million.

According to the European Central Bank’s 2015 “Virtual currency schemes – a further analysis” report, virtual currency is a digital representation of value, not issued by a central bank, credit institution or e-money institution, which, in some circumstances, can be used as an alternative to money. In the previous report of October 2012, the virtual currency was defined as a type of unregulated, digital money, which is issued and usually controlled by its developers, and used and accepted among the members of a specific virtual community.
Monero is a decentralized cryptocurrency, meaning it is secure digital cash operated by a network of users. Transactions are confirmed by distributed consensus and then immutably recorded on the blockchain. Third-parties do not need to be trusted to keep your Monero safe.
We already know that Bitcoin relies crucially on mining. But who are the miners? How did they get into this? How do they operate? What’s the business model like for miners? What impact do they have on the environment?
Somewhat unintuitively, American corporations today enjoy many of the same rights as American citizens. Both, for instance, are entitled to the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion. How exactly did corporations come to be understood as “people” bestowed with the most fundamental constitutional rights? The answer can be found in a bizarre—even farcical—series of lawsuits over 130 years ago involving a lawyer who lied to the Supreme Court, an ethically challenged justice, and one of the most powerful corporations of the day.
