Ripple Live: Ask Me Anything with Brad Garlinghouse and Cory Johnson (2018)

Standard crypto is a code-based asset designed to be employed as a medium of trade. Additional crypto-coins can be added through mining. Anyone is able to participate if they have a device.

Mining uses a lot of time and electrical energy, though. A fast computer is also vital, to do this effectively. Conversely, Ripple is a centralised asset, which can't be mined. A finite supply of units were generated by the organisation and this number will not be exceeded. 

Keen to purchase crypto-currency? The process is very simple but you should exercise caution, whenever attepting an internet transaction of any kind.

At present, over fifty percent of all buys are carried out over the internet. Online shopping is straightforward and easy, which is why more and more individuals are turning to this option as opposed to battling the crowds in the high street. The internet also enables people to carry out more valuable research and pick-up the most advantageous deals. However, there remains a murky aspect of online shopping. What follows are the important protocols, consumers need to learn.

Only buy from your house/apartment. Thieves may easily access sensitive information when you use non-private wifi connections, which means it's safer to order from your living-room than in retail premises. Do not make purchases when you are waiting at bus stations, hostels or any kind of free hot-spots.

Beware of social network offers. Don't rely on these sorts of deals as most links are deceptive. That means you cannot know if the link transports you to a legitimate website.

Pay with your credit card. Never use a debit card. More than 50% of debit cards require that acts of fraud be reported in under a couple of days to obtain limit liability. Never wire money to vendors. You won't be able to get your cash back should you do this. Make sure you check credit card statements. Place online receipts inside a designated email folder, then you may crosscheck transactions.

Do not supply any excess information. You don't have to provide your driver license number. They shouldn't ask your social security number either. If a company request this information, it should concern you. Select complicated passwords that you still can remember. If your phone/PC asks to remember the password, always select 'No'. Should someone else gain access to your machine they could potentially find your credit card info.

Do not get caught out by gift card scams. If you receive an email and it states you've qualified to receive a gift card but also requests your credit card info, delete it. Legitimate sellers won't ask details such as this. Always remember this, because it's necessary that individuals remain cautious when ordering over the net. Purchase from home and first establish that the vendor is genuine.
