Cryptocurrency is a digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of the banking system. It is an emerging financial technology enabled by innovation and is increasingly popular among Internet users. It challenges financial and regulatory rules on currency and payment systems.

This announcement is timely.
