    A digital currency that uses cryptographic techniques to securely verify the transfer of currency units between users. Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency and remains the most valuable today, despite the emergence of thousands of alternative projects. Most cryptocurrencies operate using blockchain technology in a decentralized network. This network ensures cryptocurrency does not need to be controlled by any single authority, making it impervious to manipulation by a government or central bank.
