Cryptocurrency is a virtual asset serving as a digital medium of exchange.
Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency with its own symbol and rate in 2009. Later, more and more types of cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Litecoin were added and their use worldwide started to become more widespread. Public interest in them has increased steadily over the years and they are highly tradeable assets due to their volatile characteristics.
Purchasing cryptocurrencies often involves setting up accounts or Virtual Wallets with specialist exchange sites. It could mean you have to manage different currencies across a number of unregulated exchange sites and pay high conversion fees on each one.
