Corda Architecture Working Group – 2017/10/19

Centralised crypto is a code-based resource designed to work as a medium of trade. Additional coins can be added via mining. Anyone is able to participate if they've access to a computer.

Mining requires a great deal of hours and electrical power, however. A powerful computer is also needed, to do this successfully. Conversely, Ripple is a centralised resource, which can't be mined. A finite supply of tokens were made by the company and this number will not be added to. 

Looking to buy crypto-currency? Ordering it is quite straightforward but investors need to take care, whenever attepting an internet purchase of any kind.

Right now, over half of all purchases are carried out over the internet. Online shopping is simple and easy, hence more and more individuals are switching to this method as opposed to facing the crowds in the high street. The web also allows anyone to perform more valuable analysis and secure the top deals. However, there still is a murky side to e-commerce. These are the important protocols, one must follow.

Only buy from home. Thieves can easily access your info when you use free-for-all wifi services, thus it is safer to order from your living-room than in internet cafes. Don't attempt to make purchases when waiting at bus stations, hotels or any other public hot-spots.

Avoid social network offers. You cannot trust these sorts of deals as the majority of URLs are deceptive. This means customers cannot be sure that the link takes 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 are reported in under 2 days to obtain limit liability. Don't wire money to sellers. You cannot get your cash back when you do this. Be sure to check credit card bills. Sort online receipts in a secure email folder, then you may crosscheck payments.

Don't give out any more info than necessary. You don't need to give out a driver license number. They shouldn't ask your social security number either. If the website demand this info, be suspicious. Select complicated passwords that you can visualize. Then if your device offers to remember the password, always select 'No'. Should somebody gain access to your machine they might find your credit card info.

Watch you don't fall prey to gift voucher schemes. When you are sent an email and it claims you've qualified to be sent a gift card but also requests your credit card details, delete it. Legitimate sellers will not ask such sensitive info. Please remember this, because it is important that buyers remain cautious when shopping over the net. Purchase from home and be certain that the company is for real.
