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.

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.
