How cryptocurrencies can help democracies

Cryptocurrencies are created and held electronically. They are not physical objects like dollar bills or coins. Cryptocurrencies are generated by computers solving complex mathematical problems. Bitcoin, the first and most well-known cryptocurrency, was created in 2009.

Cryptocurrencies are decentralized, meaning they are not subject to government or financial institution control. Bitcoin, for example, is not backed by gold or a government like traditional currencies. This makes cryptocurrencies less susceptible to inflation and other economic problems.

Cryptocurrencies are also anonymous. Transactions are not linked to personal information like name or address. This makes cryptocurrencies ideal for purchasing items online or in person that you don't want others to know about.

Cryptocurrencies are held in digital wallets. A digital wallet is a program that stores cryptocurrencies and allows you to access and spend them. You can store your cryptocurrencies on your computer or mobile device, or you can store them on a third-party website.

Cryptocurrencies are used to purchase items in the same way that traditional currencies are. You can use Bitcoin, for example, to purchase items on,, and other online retailers. Cryptocurrencies are also used to pay for services like web hosting and VPNs.

Cryptocurrencies are volatile. Their value can change rapidly and unpredictably. This makes them a risky investment, but also provides the potential for high returns. Bitcoin, for example, was worth less than $1 in early 2011 but was worth more than $19,000 in December 2017.
