Benefits of crypto

Transaction Speed

Bank transfers can take anywhere from a few hours to several days. Cryptocurrency transfers occur within minutes.


The fixed supply of cryptocurrencies protects against inflation. As coins are lost over time, cryptos actually become rarer, which increases their value.


Privacy and anonymity are much easier to achieve through cryptocurrencies rather than fiat, particularly with the use of privacy coins such as Monero.


Anyone with a computer and internet access can use crypto.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency and the first iteration of what is now commonly referred to as blockchain technology. Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency and the biggest by market capitalization.

The mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto released a 9-page white paper in 2008, outlining how Bitcoin worked. In 2009, Bitcoin was launched.

Bitcoin’s success has resulted in many copycat cryptocurrencies. So, what’s the difference between them all? That’s a good question and one that would take a long time to answer comprehensively. Essentially, though, cryptocurrencies vary in terms of their capabilities with respect to privacy, security, programmability etc. We suggest taking some time to learn about the different cryptos starting with Bitcoin and Ethereum. If you like what you see, then take it from there! Our Crypto Basics page is a good place to start…

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain technology is the underlying technology that powers most cryptocurrencies. A blockchain is simply a public ledger or database. “Blockchain” refers to the fact that transactions are added to the database in “blocks” that form a “chain” of transactions. Blockchains help cryptocurrencies to remain decentralized. They are also immutable, which means information can only be added, it can’t be changed or removed.

Should I Invest in Crypto?

Crypto markets are still in their infancy and price can be extremely volatile. If you think you’ve got the stomach for it, but you’re not an experienced trader, simply buying and holding for the long haul may be your best option. If you’re convinced you want to buy, you can make your first purchase at Coinmama for as little as $50. #HODL
