A cryptocurrency (virtual token, digital asset) is an innovative, advanced and distributed accounting system that stores all information about the state of ownership and contractual units. The mentioned holding level is closely related to individual system nodes, called cryptocurrency wallets, in a way that ensures constant control over a given wallet only to the owner of the corresponding private key. If the holder wishes to make a transaction, it's online: between him and the given contractor directly. Each and every unit of cryptocurrency has its own unique code, with all information, preventing its copying or re-spending. Cryptocurrencies are distinguished mostly because of their decentralized nature. They do not have any control body (regulator) that could decide to increase their supply with a potential decrease in value. Crypto transactions are online only, directly between at least two users (P2P technology - peer-topeer), without the participation of banking systems or other financial supervisory institutions. There is no entity that could control these transactions. The most popular and at the same time the most important cryptocurrencies include Bitcoin, which from the very beginning has been in the leading position with the unrivalled market capitalization. Other important digital assets are Ethereum, Ripple or Litecoin, but there are also many other currencies, which are becoming more and more popular.
