What is cryptocurrency?
A cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency – popular currencies include Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Cryptocurrencies rely on a technology called blockchain, which is decentralised. This means that there’s no single entity in charge of it, unlike banks, which are centralised.
Government-issued currencies are referred to as fiat. With Skrill, you can convert numerous fiat currencies into crypto, and just as easily sell your crypto in exchange for fiat.
