A Kiwi's Guide to Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, and the Future of Money.
What is Cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are a new class of internet-based currency, believed by many to be the next generation of money.
Launched in 2009, Bitcoin was the first crypto created – built to provide the world with an electronic peer-to-peer cash system that can operate on it’s own without the need for a bank, state, or central organisation.
Following Bitcoin’s rise and success there are now over 7,500 different cryptocurrencies today, all racing to use the latest tech to revolutionise finance and lay the foundations for the internet economy of the future.

Why use Crypto?
Cryptocurrencies are sent across the internet in seconds – evolving money the same way the internet evolved commerce & communication.
Cryptocurrencies are trusted by over 100+ million users around the world, including brands such as Microsoft, PayPal, Wikipedia, Virgin Air & Airbnb.
You don’t have to disclose your name, address, or identity to send, receive, store and spend cryptocurrency.
Cryptos like Bitcoin have a fixed number of units that can ever enter circulation, unlike currencies like the NZD or USD which are printed from thin air.
Bitcoin transactions are irreversible – and there’s no central authority or person that can stop you from sending, storing, or receiving payments.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies aren’t stored in banks, but rather in privately owned user wallets. When you own crypto, you become your own bank.
