Cryptocurrency is virtual money that has no physical expression. The unit of such currency is "coin", which means "coin" in English.
The key feature of cryptocurrencies is decentralization — the absence of any internal or external administrator. Therefore, banks, tax, judicial and state authorities cannot influence the transactions of users of crypto assets. This is possible because all data with cryptocurrency wallets and transactions are stored in the blockchain.
First of all, consider the benefits to the players. Of course, Anonymity comes first. Not everyone wants to advertise that they are playing.
Cryptocurrency allows you to solve this issue in the best way: no one will simply know what kind of person is hiding behind a specific wallet number.
For the owner of an online casino, cryptocurrency technology is a whole mountain of gifts.
Firstly, it becomes possible to scale infinitely, that is, to attract customers from other cities, countries, continents.
Now let‘s look at the top of the most popular cryptocurrencies on the market.
Bitcoin has always remained the most expensive cryptocurrency, but it also had difficult times. The currency is falling, then recovering after a downtrend. In any case, the demand for it never disappears. And as a result, capitalization is growing.
The main difference from bitcoin is the full use of smart contracts (BTC also has them, but the functionality is limited). In addition, for many developers, Ethereum is a convenient platform for creating decentralized applications.
Such currencies are called stablecoins and serve to digitalize national currencies. Thus, the painful topic of crypto is eliminated – high volatility, but at the same time all the key advantages of electronic money (security, anonymity, lack of borders) are preserved.
Many companies are already partially switching from the traditional dollar to Tether to take advantage of these advantages. This determines the popularity of the currency.
Binance Coin is a fairly promising investment tool showing a steadily growing value. To combat inflation, some tokens are regularly redeemed and compressed, reducing the volume of assets in circulation.
It is fully regulated, issued centrally and controlled by American regulatory authorities. There are pros and cons to this. The disadvantages are obvious, and the advantages are that the degree of security of coins is controlled at the state level. Each USDC is guaranteed to be backed by the US dollar.
Ripple is a platform that primarily performs the role of a cheap and fast payment system. With its help, you can exchange currencies, including cross-border payments.
Blockchain is a platform that may well compete with Ethereum in its functionality.
It also supports working with highly efficient smart contracts, allows you to host decentralized applications, NFT tokens and much more.
The Terra project token is called LUNA, and it is used to mint algorithmic stablecoins. In particular, this is the UST dollar stablecoin.
The platform consists of two levels, one of which focuses on working with smart contracts, and the other on tokens. Of course, this is not a unique development, but they are trying to improve the platform as much as possible so that it works faster and more reliably.
This blockchain platform focuses on the idea of connecting additional blockchains to the main one, thereby increasing the possible scalability of the network.
