Video Synopsis: Cryptocurrency—What You Need
to Know

For many years now, cryptocurrency has been one of the most talked about topics in the financial industry. But do most of us really understand what it is and how it works?

Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency, and like other cryptocurrencies, it is not generated or regulated by any government agency. It is created by individuals around the world using a free software and storing the currency in programs called “wallets.” The technology behind cryptocurrencies, Blockchain, is a platform that exists on thousands of individual computers around the world instead of in one place or server, enabling an incredibly secure and traceable trail of transactions.

Other characteristics of cryptocurrency include:
– Its price is determined by demand
– The value progresses by what people are willing to pay or exchange
– The currency is now accepted by some institutions and businesses
– Cryptocurrency’s next big “leap” will come as more businesses accept it

Some of the advantages of cryptocurrency for investors are that it can act as a hedge against inflation and a falling dollar, as well as provide airtight security—transactions cannot even be duplicated within Blockchain. Risks for investors include extreme price swings and the fact that there is no insurance like the FDIC for these currencies—you could even lose your “money” by forgetting your password.

With banks and hedge funds now purchasing cryptocurrencies, solidifying the market, it looks like they are here to stay. Individuals interested in buying cryptocurrencies, whether in the form of a coin, stock or exchange traded fund, should be clear about what their short- and long-term plans are for the investment. They would do well to also share these goals with their financial advisors, in order to better fit them into an overall plan for their portfolios.
