Data is a key component within the cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystem. Because digital currency is completely intangible, it is comprised only of data and all dealings done in cryptocurrency require it, as well. When a transaction is carried out using digital currency, the transaction’s information is recorded within a distributed ledger. The information from that transaction is linked to both the pervious and following transactions, each holding their own information and the information from the last. This creates a chain of data which makes it difficult to alter, corrupt, or remove. As such, distributed ledgers are incredibly secure. For this reason, more individuals and industries are turning to blockchain technology for storage and sharing solutions. In the past, cyber security has been a significant challenge. Though this is still the case, new measures and tactics to increase security are constantly being introduced. With every action made, data is produced. The vast amount being created and stored on a daily basis is truly remarkable. The protection of this information is key for your cyber, financial, and identity security (among other things). It is important to become well-versed on potential hacks and scams in circulation in the crypto community. Though distributed ledgers, exchanges, digital wallets, and other such platforms are consistently improving upon their security measures, individuals are still vulnerable to malicious intent. Learning about the protection of your data is in your best interest. Aside from security, there is a great deal to be learned. For example, new types of information sharing and storage is always available. Advances in programming and developments in the tech sphere are always being introduced and have the potential to impact the ways which we engage with data. The information available is endless, and the various technological developments are incredibly exciting.
