Some basic notices about real Cryptocurrency

Real algorithm:

The first condition should be asked about Cryptocurrency is that which algorithm this currency used, is it strong enough or not. Cryptocurrency is created by data mining method. Data mining is the progress servers use algorithms to encrypt, decrypt, analyze, explore the date blocks and are paid by Cryptocurrency.
Some common algorithms used to encrypt Cryptocurrency are: SHA – 256 algorithm with Namecoin, Bytecoin, Devcoin,…like Bitcoin; Scrypt algorithm with Litecoin, Novacoin, Bitmart…etc.

Many coins in the market just have tokens, not real algorithms. The capital is generated by providers in the system, that money is used for domestic transactions in the company or in the same exchange.
This money cannot go on the free exchanges. It brings investors many risks of losing money anytime.

Mining server system

The creation of normal virtual currency is simply don’t by the system. The time and quantity is not limited, and depend on subjective decisions of the holding company.

Cryptocurrency is completely different from other normal ones, the creation of money is done by server system. It makes money by mining data in data blocks. The money created is limited by the algorithm. If only the algorithm is changed can the mining quantity change. It will only carried out when most of servers mining money agree to update new algorithm .
Therefore, when investing into Cryptocurrency, you need to find out if there are many individuals, organizations participating in “mining”. The more servers are “mining” the currency, the better it is, the more secure it is.

The money in your wallet will never be used or appear in the market if your computer/ phone is not connected to the internet.
