Crypto or cryptocurrency are digital money (coins) based on blockchain technology, which makes them difficult to steal and counterfeit. Crypto has value and purchasing power in the same way as regular (fiat) currencies. In some cases you can even use crypto as payment, but it is still most common to buy crypto as an investment.
Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology and is also the most famous currency since it’s launch in 2009. In recent years, several other currencies have gained popularity and market share; Etherium, Cardano, Tether and Litecoin to name a few.
A crypto wallet can, for example, be in the form of a program on the computer, a mobile app, an account with the bank, or a hardware wallet. The wallet helps you store your public and private keys. The keys control your assets and only whoever has access to the keys can conduct transactions with the cryptocurrencies.

If you want to buy the cryptocurrency itself, it’s a good idea to research how everything works and how to keep your coins safe. Another way is to invest in crypto through a provider. Then you don’t have to keep track of keys and wallets, the supplier takes care of that for a small fee.

Crypto is a high-risk investment. The exchange rate is volatile and can heavily go up and down from one day to another. When you invest, there is always a risk that you will lose the money you have invested. If you choose to buy the cryptocurrency itself, you need to keep a key to your coins in a safe place. If your key is lost, you can no longer access your coins. If you instead choose to invest in crypto through a provider, you don't have to store the key yourself, instead, the provider manages your investment for you, but it's still important to choose a reliable provider. Remember that historical exchange rate performance is not an indication of future performance. Information from P.F.C. and Bitpanda should not be considered as financial advice and we never make recommendations for the purchase or sale of cryptocurrency.
