Normal crypto is a code-based holding designed to work as a medium of exchange. Additional coins may be added via mining. Everyone can do this if they have a computer.

Mining requires a large amount of hours and electricity, though. A powerful computer is also required, to mine effectively. Conversely, Ripple is a centralised coin, which cannot be mined. A fixed supply of coins were created by the organisation and this number will never be added to.

Sort online receipts inside a secure email folder, so that you can crosscheck transactions.

Don't supply any excess information. You don't need to provide a driver license number. They don't need your social security number either. Should the site demand this info, it is untrustworthy. Choose complicated passwords that you still can visualize. Then if your computer to store it, always select 'No'. Should someone else gain access to the device they could discover your credit card details.

Legitimate retailers will not request such sensitive info. Please remember this, because it is vital that customers act wisely when shopping on the internet. Order from home and be certain that the vendor is genuine.
