Digital Currency Revolution

2228 Articles

Digital currency or digital money is an Internet-based medium of exchange distinct from physical (such as banknotes and coins) that exhibits properties similar to physical currencies, but allows for instantaneous transactions and borderless transfer-of-ownership. Like traditional money these currencies may be used to buy physical goods and services but could also be restricted to certain communities such as for example for use inside an on-line game or social network. In this series, we cover stories and provide insightful analysis of the digital currencies such as bitcoin with no central point of control over the money supply.
