Cryptocurrency is the new big thing everyone is talking about. It’s just gone main stream or about to. I’ve out with friends and everyone is talking about but are they investing in it? The sceptics are also still around. Which is total normal as all investments have risk and cypto is high risk. The are of investing is to minised the risk whilst maximising the reward. If you are looking it as an investment or want to start using the digital currency. Yes, if you invested a approx £1000.00 in 201 bitcoin was the only option after the calpse of Lenman Brother and the financial meltdown of 2008-9 you would of has a return of 3500% as of September 2017 as I write this post. 1000×3500 = 3,500,000.00 You a bitcoin multi million in 8 years.  Check out prices today? The white paper from made it on the web from a Satoshi Nakamoto who is the creator of the first cryptocurrency and bitcoin. Bitcoin is decentralised, no bank of Englad but a mining process takes place which uses complex mathematical alogorythn with peer to peer mining. Which is effectively many computers are synced up globally all using processing power is harvest these coin which are fraud free. Fraud free but not crime free, Read on.

Like paper money and gold before it, bitcoin and ether allow parties to exchange value. Unlike their predecessors, they are digital and decentralized. For the first time in history, people can exchange value without intermediaries which translates to greater control of funds and lower fees.

What is Cryptocurrency

It’s a digital currency, like the GBP / Dollar that allows you to purchase things on the internet. It’s like having cash in the sense that if you lose it or someone still it from you. It’s gone. That why storage / security is a hugh issue. As a new industry there have been and gone startup and wallets and exchanging have emerge with MTGOX being a massive dent in confidence to the layman investor failed venture and “Mt. Gox announced that approximately 850,000 bitcoins belonging to customers and the company were missing and likely stolen, an amount valued at more than $450 million at the time. Although 200,000 bitcoins have since been “found”, the reason(s) for the disappearance—theft, fraud, mismanagement, or a combination of these—were initially unclear. New evidence presented in April 2015 by Tokyo security company WizSec led them to conclude that “most or all of the missing bitcoins were stolen straight out of the Mt. Gox hot wallet over time, beginning in late 2011.” WikiPedia

Storage / security

A wallets is an app that sits on your smart phone and allows you to generate a code that allows you to purchase bitcoin or other cryptocurrency from an exchange. A phases with words is generated and then that you must remember (difficult) that  or write it down. If you lost this your coins are gone.. There are other storage methods like a paper wallet or a hardware wallet know as a cold store. These device can be stored in a safety like a safety deposit box which is about £200 per annum. May seem a little over zelus but if you look at my above example £1000 multiplying into £3.5m you’s want to make sure you cash want just sitting under your mattress, right?


Paper wallet – where is states you “if you lose the qr reader thgen you can use it” isnt true as long as you have the number.

Use these video to play around with a budget of £10/20 to get to grips with the process.

The coins them selfs are impossible to replicate as you’d need a machine the size of London to do this instead minings sereend there computer processing to mine these coins.
