Digital currency is certainly here to stay, with huge benefits for consumers including lower transaction fees, faster processing times, global use and its complete anonymity. These cryptocurrencies are an entirely legitimate source of funds, and are becoming increasingly popular around the world with a number of mainstream businesses now accepting currencies as payment for goods and services. Governments, banks, financial regulators, as well as commercial and individual investors, are increasingly investigating how they can participate in the market.
Blockchain – the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies – is inherently secure. The security baked into blockchain could be the cryptocurrency market’s greatest attribute as it strives to establish itself as a long-term investment opportunity and bring itself into the mainstream.
