Human evolution came all the way here with so many mind blowing inventions, products and ideas which has changed the world in different ways and the most important part of today’s era is currency. It is surprising that the world has changed the way of barter system which was there in ancient era when people use to exchange good with good and there is no medium after some time people started using coins and paper money and started calling it as currency, each country has invented their own currency and started valuing them according to demand and supply. 

Later state the physical currency has  transformed in shape of credit card and become digital and we started using as plastic cards and digital money but while doing that you still have access to or the form of currency is still the same. Till now digital currency was having one to one mapping with the physical currency or money, only different thing was it is in form on digital form and you can use that with orchestrated medium which has created by banks to use or spend it. Now these banks started serving as middle man to manage your digital money which is good because now you have someone who is taking care of your money but the problem here is bank and these kind of digital money institutions started taking their cuts which means they started charging for their fees for every transaction which you do in digital way so hold on are you missing some point here , we started our transaction with barter system where we use to exchange goods so there was fair value for both parties now we invented currency and started using it so each coin or dollar bill has value which we use to utilizes to buy or sell good. Now when it is converted into digital we have got the overhead of the extra charges and their born the new crypto currency called Bitcoins.

When I first started learning about Bitcoins I was just amazed that how those works, I started searching that in simple team I found that we are going back to our roots it is kind of similar to our barter system when there was not middle man and we use to deal with each other only now goods are replaced with bitcoins but the concept remains the same. Today Bitcoins are reshaping the world’s currency market. This currency has been accepted by many main stream vendors and you can find bit coins ATMS where you can buy Bitcoins, Now you will think that Bitcoins are some kind of physical coins which will pour from ATM , then you are mistaking, bitcoins are not physical it’s all virtual ,same as money in your bank account. The only difference is there is no middle man who is managing your money, every Bitcoins transaction happens between one person to another and everyone keeps track of all transaction.

In first place this is kind of blizzard to understand but I will try to explain this is upcoming article. Everyday our world is moving in different direction very fast and bank and financial institutions are predicting that Bitcoin might be the future currency.
