There are many that believe that blockchain is the future of currency as it provides more long-term security as it is very difficult to replicate or be used for fraudulent purposes. With many blockchain types of currencies, each one needs thorough research to understand the technology behind it and the hope that it will be adopted and become profitable to mine. Mining requires the initial cost outlay for the hardware requirements and has ongoing costs for electricity. If the cost of the crypto currency become too high, then it might not be profitable to mine. However, it is important to understand the background and usage of crypto currencies and how more cities are accepting crypto currencies for common goods purchases which can be done as easily as using contactless bank cards.
