Discovering Cryptocurrencies: A Journey from their Beginnings.

When we talk about banking and finance, we often encounter terms and concepts that can be a bit overwhelming. But don’t worry, together we will discover a fascinating and very current world: that of cryptocurrencies. This is the first stop in our series of articles dedicated to unraveling the enigma of modern banking.

Origins of a digital revolution

It all started in 2008, when a person (or group of people) under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper called “Bitcoin: a peer-to-peer electronic cash system”. This was the first step towards the creation of Bitcoin, the world’s first cryptocurrency.

And why was it so revolutionary? Until that time, all our financial transactions required an intermediary, such as a bank. But Nakamoto proposed a system where we could transfer money directly, without intermediaries.

Evolution and beyond Bitcoin

While Bitcoin was the pioneer, it was not the only one. Over time, other cryptocurrencies began to emerge, each with its own characteristics and value propositions. Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple are just a few that joined the revolution.

As of today, we have seen how cryptocurrencies have gone from being a digital curiosity to a financial reality that many of us interact with on a daily basis, whether it be investing, sending money to loved ones or even making purchases.

Why is it important to us?

Living in the United States, a nation with such a diverse economy and so many opportunities, it is essential that we keep up with financial trends. Cryptocurrencies, with their ability to offer fast and secure transactions, could represent a vital tool in our financial arsenal.
