H1 38/40px Part One Crypto Basics Mobile

Paragraph default –  You’ve heard of cryptocurrency or at least Bitcoin by now. It’s hard to ignore crypto as it grows in adoption and media coverage increases. This new type of currency is very polarizing – it’s loved by some, hated by others, and confusing to most.

Bold will start by explaining what a cryptocurrency is, discuss some advantages over traditional currencies, and outline the risks you need to be aware of before investing in it.

H2 32/40px What Exactly is a Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is crypto + currency

If we use this literal breakdown, the word crypto comes from “cryptography”. Cryptography uses a technique called encryption to conceal messages using algorithms.

Encryption is nothing new. The first recorded use of cryptography is in the year 1900 BC. We’ve been hiding messages from each other for at least 4 thousand years, if not longer.

Today it’s defined as the process of encoding a message so that it can only be read by the sender and the intended recipient. In other words, as secret as possible. Whether an encrypted message is kept a secret is up to the owner because an encrypted message can only be decrypted by using the right key.

H2 What exactly happens when you send Bitcoin to someone else?

This is not going to be a detailed technical breakdown. It’s important to look at things conceptually and to understand that Bitcoin transactions involve some very unique attributes that make them secure and trustworthy.

Let’s dive right into it.

Suppose I wanted to send you some Bitcoin. Before you receive anything, our transaction needs to be validated. This means it will be added to the blockchain. Before this can happen, our transaction will first be broadcast to the entire Bitcoin network to ensure that I have the funds available and the permissions needed to send them (ownership).

A block can only hold so much data (currently Bitcoin can have about 1800 transactions per block) based on its size of around 2MB. Other cryptocurrencies, like Litecoin, have larger (or smaller) sizes that can accommodate more (or fewer) transactions.

H3 Fair enough.

It is a bit more effort than having someone else take care of everything for you. Crypto is going to take a bit more effort, but it can also be much more rewarding.

Also, there are custodial services for crypto that are essentially banks – only with much higher returns.

Everything is really all up to me?

H4 This is mostly true.

With great power comes great responsibility. But, you’re not going to be editing code or minting NFTs. All this responsibility comes down to managing passwords and using the right tools. It’s significantly less complex than learning how to play a video game, and most of us have done that.

It’s going to be fine.
