Cryptocurrency is software. Every function, from how transactions are recorded
to how data is stored, is dictated by code.
Especially for cryptocurrencies whose main function is to act as money, cryptocurrency
transactions are typically stored in a type of database known as a blockchain (other
use unique technology, but the gist is the same).
What we think of as cryptocurrency, for example 1 Bitcoin, is just numbers recorded on a
cryptocurrency’s blockchain. Another word for that stand-in for value is “token” (often
also called a “coin”).
Cryptocurrencies are created by algorithms that rely on cryptography. That is why it is
called “crypto” currency.
Every transaction relates back to unique cryptographic codes that secure the network.
Cryptocurrency software is decentralized and distributed, meaning it is hosted on many
across the world instead of just on one server by one company.
The algorithms generally are written to award coins to computers that add transactions
to the blockchain. The process of adding transactions to the blockchain is known as
The code of the cryptocurrency defines things like maximum supply, mining rewards, etc.
Thus, for most cryptocurrencies, the main way new coins are created is by people all
over the world running hardware
that adds transactions to the blockchain. Otherwise, cryptocurrency tokens are created
by other mechanisms contained
in a cryptocurrency’s software.
