How to Buy Cryptocurrency on Uphold.
Written By Lamar Laing

Currency has continued to evolve over the centuries. We’ve gone from trading food and raw materials, to printing precious metals, to paper bills, to credit and debit cards. The 21st century has brought in a new era of digital currency, also known as cryptocurrency.  Cryptocurrency is a digital asset that is secured through cryptography. This means that the ownership and transfer of the cryptocurrency is secured, also making it almost impossible to counterfeit or misspend. 

Cryptocurrencies also function on decentralized networks based on blockchain technology. Because cryptocurrency is not issued by a centralized authority, like the Fed, they cannot be manipulated or interfered with by government entities. 

One of the more unique features of cryptocurrency is the accessibility that people have to purchase and trade with this new form of digital currency. Now more than ever, it is easy for individuals to buy some of the most advanced cryptocurrencies on the planet. Platforms like Uphold, also known as a digital wallet, allow users to securely purchase, trade, convert and hold different forms of digital currency.
