What are cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrency is a type of digital money created from code. They operate autonomously, outside of traditional banking and government systems. Cryptocurrencies use cryptography to secure transactions and regulate the creation of additional units. Bitcoin, the original and most famous cryptocurrency, was launched in January 2009. There are currently over 1000 cryptocurrencies available on the Internet.
