What is "Digital Cash", "Crypto", and "Blockchain" ?

You may have heard these terms bandied about, but the important point to understand is that these are synonymous terms that refer to the same thing. Essentially we are talking about this:

a public record of transactions

This public record is in the form of a distributed database that can be accessed by anyone, and the term "blockchain" can be broken down into the words "block" (the individual transactions) and "chain" (the overall distributed database).

There are many advantages of a blockchain currency, and we believe it is here to stay, eventually replacing the current system of paper based currency.

If you want to learn more about blockchain technology, we highly recommend Ivan Liljeqvist and his excellent team. We have taken some of Ivan's courses ourselves, and they are excellent:
