A cryptocurrency is a digital currency that is self-organized, whose value is determined mainly by social consensus. In addition to being decentralized, a cryptocurrency is not backed by any third party or central bank. Essentially, cryptocurrencies are limited entries in a database, not controlled by anyone but by the network itself, which is unchangeable unless specific conditions are fulfilled. All these conditions make cryptocurrency prices unpredictable and constantly fluctuating.
