The term cryptocurrency is quite new since Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and the rest of its denominations came about a little over 10-years ago. But electronic payment is not new and has been around for over a century. In 1871 Western Union introduced money transfer via telegraph.
Now we’ve come a long way since the telegraph and one of the biggest challenges of electronic payments is security. How secure is it? How do we guarantee that our money will reach its intended recipient? How do we make sure that our “electronic” money is safe?
Because if you think about it – it would be relatively easy for our electronic gold to fall in the hands of virtual thieves.
