CRYPTOCURRENCY means "Digital or Virtual Currency."

A CRYPTOCURRENCY is a "Digital or Virtual Currency" designed to work as a medium of exchange in place of official currencies. Cryptocurrencies use cryptography to secure transactions, control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of assets. They are organic in nature (i.e., they are not issued by any central authority), therefore cryptocurrencies are theoretically immune to manipulation by governments and banking authorities.

Bitcoin, launched in 2009, was the first CRYPTOCURRENCY to gain widespread publicity. Since then, thousands of other cryptocurrencies have been created, including: Ether, Litecoin, Monero, Namecoin and Ripple. These Bitcoin alternatives are collectively referred to as "altcoins".
