What are cryptocurrencies
Cryptocurrencies, as they are briefly called cryptocurrencies, are a payment method that can be traded without the need for central monetary authority such as governments or banks.
Instead, cryptocurrencies are created by using encryption techniques that make people able to buy, sell, or trade them securely.
Cryptocurrencies can be replaced by goods and services, although they are often used as investment instruments.
Cryptocurrency is also an essential part of the operation of some decentralised financial networks, with digital codes being an important tool through which different financial transactions can be carried out.
Bitcoin is the most common cryptocurrency in the world, especially since its price has fluctuated since its release and during its trading date.
In 2021, bitcoin hit an all-time high of more than $65,000 before falling back.

Why are cryptocurrencies so popular?
People invest in cryptocurrencies for a variety of reasons, the most famous of which are:
- Advocates of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin see the currency of the future as the currency of the future and are quick to buy it, and expect it to become more valuable
- Some cryptocurrency supporters like the fact that these currencies eliminate the idea of central banks managing cash supply, especially as they tend over time to devalue funds through inflation and rising prices.
- Many people support the technology behind cryptocurrencies, called block chain, because it is a decentralised processing and recording system and may be safer against traditional payment systems.
- Some like cryptocurrencies because of their high value and don't care about long-term currency acceptance as a way to move money.

How do I protect myself from the risks of trading cryptocurrencies?
First of all, you should know the exact details of any trading company to get this information:
- Who owns the company? Is the owner known? If it is known, this is a positive sign.
- Are there other big investors investing in your chosen digital currency? If yes, this is a good sign if these big famous investors want to own a piece of this currency.
- Are you going to have a stake in the company or just a coin? This distinction is important, as owning a share means that you can participate in its profits (i.e. you will be the owner). While buying codes simply means that you are entitled to use them.
