BitCoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies are frequently in the news, but for many, they remain a mystery. Starting with our traditional currency frameworks, we will explore the difference and similarities between them and cryptocurrencies. Of necessity, we will delve into the blockchain technology that underlies cryptocurrencies and has other uses. We will discuss the history and current state of cryptocurrencies in the world and cover the arguments pro and con. Since I own no cryptocurrency, this will be an academic and informational discussion, not a "how to" for would-be cryptocurrency-investors.
