Explaining cryptocurrency in 3 minutes!

A cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange, which can also be called "encrypted currency", "digital currency" or "virtual currency". Unlike fiat money, a government-issued currency such as the Hong Kong Dollar and U.S. Dollar, a cryptocurrency operates without government or central bank oversight. Instead, it is built on blockchain technology, secured and made unique by cryptography, and uses blockchain as a means to record a ledger of transactions.

Types of Cryptocurrency
Generally, there are two major types of cryptocurrency. One can be exchanged for other fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar, Euro and Hong Kong Dollar, while the other can be exchanged for another cryptocurrency, which crypto holders can take one of two positions – short or long.
