Having a secure laptop is one of the most important parts of cryptotrading. Hackers are always out to steal your coins!
Registering on crypto-exchanges involves different steps, from securing your account to verifying yourself for AML (anti money laundering) purposes. This workshop will focus on how to setup a secure laptop, followed by creating a trading account on a crypto-exchange.

A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency designed to work as a medium of exchange. It uses cryptography to secure and verify transactions as well as to control the creation of new units of a particular cryptocurrency.

There have been many attempts at creating a digital currency during the 90s tech boom, emerging on the market but inevitably failing. There were many different reasons for their failures, but one reason for failure was that all of those systems utilized a Trusted Third Party approach, meaning that the companies behind them verified and facilitated the transactions. Due to the failures of these companies, the creation of a digital cash system was seen as a lost cause for a long while.

Then, in early 2009, an anonymous programmer or a group of programmers under an alias Satoshi Nakamoto introduced Bitcoin. Satoshi described it as a ‘peer-to-peer electronic cash system.’ It is completely decentralized, meaning there are no servers involved and no central controlling authority. The concept closely resembles peer-to-peer networks for file sharing. In the past, trying to find a merchant that accepts cryptocurrency was extremely difficult, if not impossible. These days, however, the situation is completely different.

Alwin studied International Business & Management and worked in corporate finance for the last 9 years. He's been trading in cryptocurrency since 2012.
