How cryptocurrency works?
All confirmed transactions from the start of a cryptocurrency’s creation are stored in a public ledger. The identities of the coin owners are encrypted, and the system uses other cryptographic techniques to ensure the legitimacy of record keeping.
Transactions are sent between peers from “cryptocurrency wallets” by matching up public codes which relate back to user-held private passwords. Transactions made between peers are recorded on a public ledger of transactions called a “blockchain.” Many transactions are added to a ledger at once. These “blocks” of transactions are added sequentially. That is why the ledger and the technology behind it are called “block” “chain.” It is a “chain” of “blocks” of transactions.
