Cryptocurrencies 101

All investors and traders, should be well versed in cryptocurrencies as an asset that is not correlated to any other asset. Government regulations from many countries around the globe made it possible to trade these assets on regulated exchanges, which is great news for anyone involved in the financial markets. While blockchain is a complete subject that has many different applications, cryptocurrency uses blockchain and you don't need to understand it to get into cryptocurrencies. Just think of them as another asset like gold or silver and trade them as such. Volatility has been very high, but most of the crypto's have more data behind them to make it ok to test systems on it and the volatility fluctuation is winding down from the extremes that they look like any other commodities.

Below infographic from BestAccountingSchools provides an introductory guide to cryptocurrencies, and it highlights the history, important terms, and statistics about the crypto space. It also profiles some of the pioneers that made it all happen.

It’s a great start for anyone looking to get up to speed on what’s happening in cryptocurrencies.
