What is a cryptocurrency?
In a nutshell, a cryptocurrency is a digital asset, stored on the computer or in the application, which
can be accessed only by its owner. It may be used to effect on-line transactions, because the owner
may use it for electronic payments, which can be settled without any bank system, and therefore it is
not supervised by any entity or person. Each cryptocurrency has a unique code, which prevents it

features make it very attractive.
Where to buy online currency?
The best option is to buy the cryptocurrency from brokers operating on the market. After the
purchase, we receive it in the form of digital coins or tokens. Later on, we can exchange online
currencies and make money on them, which basically involves buying them at the occasional price and
then selling when their price goes up.
Currently, the demand for online currency is higher than its supply, so more and more brokers
introduce this type of currency into their portfolio of products. They are also seeking for liquidity for crypto. However, not many of them are able
to provide their customers with full-featured online currency trading. Due to high demand and
volatility of the cryptocurrency market, which is a result of the possibility to earn hundreds or even
thousands percent in short time, brokers lack liquidity. However, there is a light in the tunnel, since
more and more trading platforms offer crypto liquidity for brokers, which will allow their customers
to have bigger access to virtual coins.
