Cryptocurrency, beginner

Editor-in-Chief TakashimaEditor-in-Chief Takashima

Thanks! Takashima. If I would like to introduce you again, I am the editor-in-chief of this "Fun Virtual Currency Girls' Association".

"It's kind of difficult with virtual currencies"I'm interested in cryptocurrencies, but I can't easily step inIt seems that there are many people.

In particular, this site also seems to be like a certain glasses commercial saying "It's too difficult to read!", So I, Takashima, took the lead,For super beginnersI want to write an article. Thank you!

So, the first time, on this one page, you can understand what a virtual currency is.
If you read thisBoth "scary" and "difficult" are blown awayYo! As I said from the top, I was a bit scared when I started virtual currency! I wish there was such a site at that time ...

What is a cryptocurrency for beginners-it started from a single paper

Cryptocurrency, beginner

So first,Virtual currency....When did it startLet's get started!

Satoshi Nakamoto lost one paper

The virtual currency was created by some great scholars or laboratories, right? I usually think so. But the virtual currency started from one paper.

In 2008, a person named Satoshi Nakamoto was added to the cryptography mailing listPaper on "Electronic Bitcoin"Was announced. Ossan like everywhere in Japan, rude! It seems to be the name of a man, but it is still unknown whether this is a Japanese person, an individual or a group.

In 2009, the software was released on the net, and Bitcoin's first"mining"(Described later) was performed and operation was started. After that, the team was formed on track and continued to operate, with community members taking over.

However, in 2010,Mr. Nakamoto suddenly died suddenlyIt is


This has become a tough! ! Are you ashamed to show your face? !

Since Satoshi Nakamoto posted later than 5 am to 11 am GMT (14 am to 20 pm Japan time), he lives in east or central North America, the West Indies, or South America. Is there not? Are you an Irish student because your dissertation was in British English? etc,Speculation has been made over his identity, but he has not yet been identified.

By the way, the first product purchased with bitcoin was “pizza”. On May 2010, 5, 22 BTC (bitcoin) was exchanged for two pizzas. May 10,000"Bitcoin Pizza Day"Eating pizza asCelebrating the birth of BitcoinThere are also people.

Editor-in-Chief TakashimaEditor-in-Chief Takashima

It's still a very expensive pizza! !

But about 10 years later,Until virtual coins are made not only bit coins, but also other coins and tokens called alt coins1,500More than kindIt is said that a virtual currency exists.

Ironically, the dark organization Silk Road made Bitcoin famous.

But it wasn't just good people who saw this revolutionary electronic bill. The "dark site" Silk Road made in 2011 is a site called "Tor (The Onion Router)", which can only be accessed with a special browser, and a site where you can buy and sell illegal things while hiding the IP address of the access source It is said that there were 2013 users when it was closed in July 7.

On that dark siteThe virtual currency Bitcoin was used for the transactionEnglish learning is necessary to prepare for life, learning and interaction with the global environment. <br> IT Skills (programming logic) is necessary to prepare for the needs of the future.<br> Financial literacy is necessary to prepare for creating, managing and being smart with time and wealth.<br>

In October 2013, the founder was arrested, and the name "Virtual Currency Bitcoin" became famous at a stretch. However, I thought that this would end, and later, "Silk Road 10" was also made.

In the past, the "scary" image of virtual currency has been associated withBackground that it was used for dark organization tradingThere may be.

What is a virtual currency for beginners? It is a collection of intangible data

Cryptocurrency, beginner

When you say words such as "there is no substance" or "it was used in a dark organization","I'm scared after all!"Some may think.

But think carefully.

Are you currently using a smartphone payment such as PayPay on the wave of 20% reduction? Even thatAlthough there is no entityIt is recognized as money and is being used hard.

Editor-in-Chief TakashimaEditor-in-Chief Takashima

While prompting the charge from the bank account,"I'm not money, it's a point!"I have a face likeRecognized as moneyright.

Virtual currencies are very similarHm.

The virtual currency itself is not as real as money, it is justAggregation of datais. By the way, please look at the bitcoin address. It is composed of long letters and numbers.

Underlying cryptocurrencies"Blockchain"Is very secure, firstCannot be tampered withIt is said that. Because if it is tampered with, it will be barred in the next connected block,

The fact that the cryptocurrency was hacked in the news is not that this blockchain is bad,Mistakes such as exchange human errorsIs almost always.

What is a virtual currency for super beginners? What is a blockchain running virtual currency?

Cryptocurrency, beginner

Bitcoin at Satoshi Nakamoto"mining"Do you remember talking about doing?

Bitcoin confirms that it is correct every time a transaction is made"Minor"There are people who are checking each one. Miners mean "miners" and are named after mining mines.


Minor doesn't mean "minority"! !

These miners do not belong to any company, they calculate on their own "very high-performance personal computer" (this is called a node). We send currency to the world.

Of course, this wasn't a volunteer, but a jobSome people (companies) have been rewarded for their jobs.

In addition, the number of Bitcoins issued is fixed, and only 2,100 million are issued. And already80% has been issued (mined)It is said that.

What happens to Bitcoin after the issue is over? later,Transactions on issued sharesIt becomesRare value rises, price risesIt is said that.

How to get a virtual currency for super beginners

Cryptocurrency, beginner

Now, let's introduce "How to get virtual currency"! Getting cryptocurrencies is more than just buying and selling at exchanges and sales outlets!

How to get cryptocurrency①Get it at exchanges and sales offices

First, there is a way to get Standard at exchanges and sales offices. There are many exchanges and sales outlets in Japan, but exchanges are cheaper and recommended. Exchange andAlthough the commission is highLet's not mistake "sales" where price movement is relatively stable!

When opening an exchange and making a deposit,Gives some bonuses first like BitPoint or GMO coinsThere are many places. Wouldn't it be nice to have more than 3000 yen in your account even though you haven't traded yet? !

For a comparison of cryptocurrency exchanges, please read the following article written by the cat! !

In addition, overseas exchanges have a wide variety of cryptocurrencies. There are at most about 10 types of exchanges in Japan at most, but there are many more than 100 types overseas.

But most of them are "grass coins"Research the coin in advance when buyingI have to buy it afterwards. It is dangerous to buy easily because it has become a topic on Twitter. Somewhat promising, at least thisLike onHigh market capitalization cryptocurrenciesLet's do it.

How to get cryptocurrency②Get it with Air Drop

In the world of cryptocurrencies, there is a custom called “air drop”. In short, this is "giving coins for free." The amount is 20 yen or 30 yen in a circle, but if you accumulate dust, it will be a mountain.

Even if you think that it is 20 yen, there is a possibility that suddenly one day suddenly rises to tens of thousands of yen. Bitcoin was initially several tens of yen.

Why give coins for free is often a "promotion". After all, there are more than 1500 virtual currencies, so I want you to know your own currency. Then you can get to know what currency it is and if you like it, you might buy it in large quantities.

How to get virtual currency ③ Get in the game

In the virtual currency world, you use virtual currency in games. I often use Ethereum. In addition, games that are still young at the beginning may give free virtual currency and items for promotion.

As the word e-sports suggests, games are now an occupation. Depending on the idea, it is possible to make a living in the game.

Maichin, a fellow women's association, has also been included in the blockchain game, and has become almost a “My Cry (My Crypto Heroes) craftsman”!

There are so many blockchain games that make you really serious.

As a game that can be enjoyed casually, there is also a game called "Aircoins" that gets virtual currency that floats in real space like Pokemon GO.

How to get virtual currency-get points instead

In the world of virtual currencies, virtual currencies are sometimes used like points. For example, if you wrote a good gourmet article, you will pay a diploma, answer a questionnaire, or if you anticipate the future and win, you will get virtual currency instead of points.

In addition, LINE, which issues LINK, a virtual currency, seems to be aiming to convert LINE points to virtual currency in the future, and there is also an immediate economic zone where virtual currency can be used instead of points It's coming up
