Fundamentals of Cryptocurrency




Cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoins make their way into the market through the process call Crypto Mining. In this overall activity, it is imperative that engagement of a user with computer and internet is in place at all times. They are primarily the participants who are responsible for having technological paraphernalia, secondly, their details can be verified by assigning unique keys or digital wallets and allows the payments to be stored into a data warehouse for mining Bitcoins, as per the rule of supply and demand and transaction fees. Sighting Bitcoin as an example, some people voiced their concerns regarding the system’s vulnerability by stating that the application can be hacked or is susceptible to cyber attacks, consequential from a leading group of people who want to abuse the primary purpose of cryptocurrency and insisted that such a risk could be mitigated through sharing crypto mining. This is because of blockchain management alluded from crypto mining is predicted to decline to a large extent, which may lower the benefits to mine the data. As crypto miners reduce, the probability of avoiding a monopolistic economy or environment increase, which leaves the cryptocurrency vulnerable to a hostile takeover by fifty percent to single user or entity. To put it simply one owns more than fifty percent stake in the cryptocurrency network, it will allow that particular user to double the volume of the transactions by utilising more coins. Due to this, the concept of Altcoins came into play by combing the technological framework of Bitcoins and IOTA. By adding a tangle to cryptocurrency network, ensures PoS, fresh-minted coins are produced based on the resources of the individuals or entities. to put it simply, anyone holds one percent of the cryptocurrency will only produce one percent of PoS coins. With this small modification, the apprehension of running into the risk of a monopolistic environment will drastically reduce as the drawback for creating a monopoly will be costly. In the end, the future outlook of cryptocurrency will be dividing the Bitcoin block by two. This will be, perhaps, the foremost happening and erratic era in the overall history of Bitcoin. The concept of block (set of transactions) reward-halving was built into the genetic structure of Bitcoin by its developer. In essence, its purpose is to make Bitcoin vulnerable to devaluation. Primarily it implies that the quantity of tokens of Bitcoin, currently in circulation, will be reduced. This is something inevitable to the fate of Bitcoin. So, in essence, it can be predicted with the passage of time, the value of Bitcoin will increase and coin in circulation will decrease. However, it is also imperative to mention here that unlike conventional trading of shares in a stock exchange, will be challenging task for the users of cryptocurrencies as they not only need to have the awareness and knowledge related to technology, but also understand the mechanics of mining, exploiting opportunity in crisis (in the event of arbitrage) and be very cautious in trading crypto in futures market. Conducting exchange through hedging or in futures, can be a bubble in disguise and in the situation of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Litecoin, can drive the investor from the roof to the streets in a matter of hours. So it is suggested that the portfolio mix should not be concentrated on one particular type of coin or tokens. Predominantly, the value of crypto behaves well as per the essence of a capital market as opposed to commodity or money market. In other words, the future trend can lead to panic but it does not mean that an individual goes berserk, just stay calm, provided you have tailored your mind-set as per the knowledge and become well-versed in all kind of connotations.
