Cardano CFD trading FAQs

What are cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies are digital tokens based on blockchain technology that act as a virtual currency. Many cryptocurrencies are mined into existence through the ‘Proof of Work’ system, involving the ADAving of complicated mathematical puzzles by high-powered computing software, with a cryptocurrency token made available to the owner as a reward.

However, a newer system known as ‘Proof of Stake’ involves contributors staking their own cryptocurrency in exchange for a chance to validate new transactions, update the blockchain, and earn a reward. Ethereum, for example, is expected to move to the Proof of Stake model in 2022.

Most cryptocurrencies are decentralised, which means that they are not connected to or affected by an authority such as a government or central bank.
