Crypto Afternoon Update with Kung Fu NERD

Standard cryptocurrency is a code-based holding designed to be used as a medium of exchange. New units may be added through mining. Everyone is able to participate by using their computer.

Mining uses a large amount of hours and electrical energy, however. A powerful computer is also required, to mine effectively. On the other hand, XRP is a centralised asset, which cannot be mined. A fixed supply of units were created by the firm and this amount will never be exceeded. 

Ready to invest in XRP? The process is very easy but one need to be careful, whenever making an internet purchase of any sort.

These days, over fifty percent of all purchases are made over the net. Online shopping is convenient and easy, which is why additional numbers of citizens are choosing this alternative as opposed to battling the crowds in the shops. The internet also allows them to do more effective research and secure the best deals. Even so, there still is a murky side to online shopping. Here are the important rules, consumers should follow.

Only shop from your own home. Criminals may easily access your data when you use free-for-all wifi services, thus it's less risky to order from home than in retail premises. Don't attempt to make purchases while waiting at bus stations, hostels or other free connected public areas.

Avoid FaceBook/Twitter offers. You cannot rely on these sorts of offers as the majority of URLs are abbreviated. That means you cannot be confident that the link transports you to a legitimate site.

Pay with a credit card. Never use a debit card. The majority of debit cards require that fraudulent purchases are reported within two days to get limit liability. Do not wire money to sellers. It's impossible to get your money refunded when you do this. Make sure you check credit card statements. Place online receipts within a designated email folder, then you may crosscheck transactions.

Do not supply any more info than necessary. You don't have to provide a driving license number. Don't reveal your social security details either. If any site request this information, it should concern you. Select long passwords that you can visualize. Then if your computer asks to store the password, always select 'No'. Should someone else gain access to the machine then they could discover your credit card number and code.

Do not fall for gift voucher scams. If you receive an email that claims you've qualified to be sent a gift card but then asks for your credit card info, ignore it. Law-abiding retailers won't seek such sensitive info. Please remember this, as it's necessary that buyers act wisely when buying over the net. Order from home and first establish that the company is genuine.

We hope you'll add our site to your favorites and check back regularly to keep up with the latest goings-on with Ripple.
