We live in a digital age, with each passing day, crypto, also known as digital assets, becomes more and more valuable as a means of exchange, for goods and services. BLOCKCHAIN: continuously growing list records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. Think of it as a public ledger of transactions that is almost impossible to corrupt or hack. CRYPTOGRAPHY: the practice or study of techniques for secure communication. Think of it as creating hidden messages or codes to protect data. When REN moves BTC through ETH, in the VM, this becomes one nation, under God, and crypto for all.
