If you are trying to know what cryptocurrency is and want to invest in it, here are some concepts you would want to know:
Trader’s Identification: Every transaction from the date of creation of the cryptocurrency is stored in public ledger. The identity of the trader is encrypted and then using other encryptions the record keeping is made legitimate; the accurate spendable balance is ensured by the ledger corresponding to”digital wallets”. Also, when new transactions are done, it is ensured though the ledger that the coins are spent from the ones owned by the trader. Binance and other cryptocurrency call their public ledger as blockchain.
Transactions: When coins are transferred between two traders who are members through exchange is known as transaction. Those transactions first get submitted to the public ledger and wait for conformation. When the transaction is done, encrypted electronic signature known as cryptographic signature is carried out to keep as a proof that the owner of the coin was engaged in the transaction. Binance does such transactions in less than a second whereas others take a bit of more time.
Mining: The process of confirming that the transaction is done and entering the data in a public ledger is called as mining. As a open source anyone can confirm about the transaction. The miner adds block of transactions to the public ledger. Therefore, the whole process goes in such a secured that no one can add or change anytime they want. When the block is added on the traders account/ledger, all other transactions related to it gets permanent and also a small commission fee is taken by the miner.
