Cryptocurrencies, digital tokens, blockchains, ICO’s, bitcoin, ethereum, etc. If you’ve seen these words, but they may as well be greek to you – then this is your onboarding point!
All of the above rely on math – specifically cryptography – to provide the trust, similar in the way that you trust a bank to hold your money. You are betting that all of their security, vaults, guards, etc will be enough to ensure your money is safe.
