Cryptocurrency is a digital version of money where the transactions are done online.  A cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange just like your normal everyday currency such as the USD, but designed for the purpose of exchanging digital information through a process known as cryptography. Cryptography is also known as cryptology.

By market capitalization, Bitcoin is the largest blockchain network. Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency which was introduced to the public in 2009. Since then, there are over 1000 cryptocurrencies available over the internet and growing.

An understanding of the principles of this innovative technology is fundamental. Recently, Coinbase conducted an analysis of the current course offerings from the top 50 universities as ranked by "US News and World Report: Best Global Universities Rankings (2018)," and concluded that
42 percent of the world's top 50 universities now offer at least one course on … cryptocurrency … across a variety of departments, including anthropology and finance - not only computer science.
