Ripple Developer Conference 2013: Welcome and Introduction

Centralised cryptocurrency is a digital holding built to work as an item of trade. New crypto-coins are found through mining. Anyone may get involved by using their computer.

Mining requires a great deal of hours and electrical power, however. A high-powered computer is also vital, to mine profitably. However, XRP is a centralised coin, which is unmineable. A fixed amount of coins were created by the organisation and this limit will not be exceeded. 

Looking to buy crypto-currency? The process is very straightforward but one should exercise caution, whenever attepting an internet transaction of any type.

These days, more than half of all purchases are carried out over the internet. Online shopping is convenient and easy, hence additional numbers of people are switching to this alternative as opposed to battling the hordes in the high street. The web also enables them to perform more valuable research and secure the best deals. However, there is a murky aspect of e-commerce. These are the crucial rules, consumers should follow.

Always purchase from your house/apartment. Thieves can easily access your info when you take advantage of public wifi connections, therefore it is less risky to purchase from your living-room than in coffee-shops. Don't attempt to make purchases while connected to airports, hostels or other free connected public areas.

Beware of Twitter/FaceBook links. Do not rely on these sorts of deals as many links are shortened. That means buyers can't know if the link transports you to a proper website.

Pay with your credit card. Avoid using a debit card. More than 50% of debit cards require that acts of fraud be reported within a couple of days to obtain limit liability. Never wire money to vendors. It's impossible to get your cash refunded when you do this. Always examine credit card statements. Put online receipts inside a separate email folder, then you can crosscheck payments.

Never supply any excess information. There's no need to provide your driving license number. They shouldn't ask your social security information either. Should the website request this info, it should concern you. Select lengthy passwords that only you can recall. Then if your device asks to store it, always select 'No'. Should somebody gain access to the device then they might find your credit card details.

Watch you don't fall prey to gift card schemes. If you are sent an email and it states you can be sent a gift card but also requests your credit card details, mark it as spam. Genuine businesses will never ask private financial data. Always remember this, as it's important that buyers remain cautious when shopping online. Order from home and make sure that the company is genuine.

We hope you'll add to your favorites and come back regularly to find out about everything happening with Ripple.
