Ether, Dash and Monero是什么?
Are they all Pokemon, cryptocurrencies, ThunderCats or investment banks?
These are examples of three cryptocurrencies, the type of digital money like bitcoin.
AZUZ: Bitcoin is the most famous of them. The currency was created in 2009. It`s not issued by any central bank or tied to any particular country.
Bitcoin can be saved or used to buy merchandise anonymously, and the price has soared recently. The value of a single bitcoin is currently more than $17,000. But getting one is the tricky part.
You can just buy the currency online, but bitcoin units are generated through a process called mining, when computers solve complex math puzzle to create them. Given their value and the increasing number of computers trying to solve those puzzles, this takes a tremendous amount of computing power and electricity.
One place that just maybe perfect for a bitcoin mining computer warehouse is an island nation between Norway and Greenland.
