INSANE RIPPLE (XRP) UPDATE – BLOCKCHAIN WEEK NYC! (CONSENSUS 2018!)

Centralised crypto-coins are a code-based asset built to work as a medium of trade. New coins may be added via mining. Everyone can do this if they have a device.

Mining uses a lot of hours and electrical power, however. A powerful computer is also needed, to mine successfully. However, XRP is a centralised coin, which can't be mined. A fixed amount of tokens were created by the company and this amount will never be exceeded. 

Keen to buy crypto-currency? Ordering it is quite easy but you should exercise caution, whenever making an internet purchase of any type.

Nowadays, in excess of 50% of all buys are made over the internet. Online shopping is straightforward and easy, hence additional numbers of citizens are turning to this method as opposed to battling the throngs in the stores. The internet also allows anyone to do more valuable analysis and grab the most advantageous deals. However, there remains a shadowy side to e-commerce. Here are the important protocols, you must learn.

Always buy from home. Criminals may easily access sensitive information when you take advantage of free-for-all wifi services, therefore it is less risky to purchase from home than in coffee-shops. Avoid making purchases while waiting at railway stations, guesthouses or other free free wifi zones.

Avoid FaceBook/Twitter offers. Do not trust these sorts of offers as many URLs are shortened. This means buyers can't know if the link takes you to a genuine site.

Buy with your credit card. Never use your debit card. Most debit cards require that acts of fraud be reported within two days to get limit liability. Never wire payments to vendors. You cannot get your money back when you do this. Always check credit card statements. Put online receipts within a designated email folder, so that you may crosscheck payments.

Never provide any excess information. There's no need to supply your driver license number. Don't reveal your social security information either. Should a company ask for this information, be suspicious. Pick complicated passwords that only you can visualize. If your phone/PC asks to store the password, always select 'No'. Should another individual gain access to your machine they might discover your credit card number and code.

Don't fall for gift voucher scams. When you receive an email and it says you are going to receive a gift card and then asks your credit card information, mark it as spam. Law-abiding retailers will not ask such sensitive info. Always remember this, as it's necessary that individuals act wisely when shopping over the net. Buy from home and make sure that the seller is trustworthy.
