There are several advantages associated with Cryptocurrencies including their ability to achieve consensus and their ability to function globally. One of the primary advantages associated with the use of a Cryptocurrency is the ability to function globally because the Cryptocurrency is managed by a central authority. In contrast, when you are dealing with a traditional currency such as the United States dollar or the Euro or the Japanese Yen, you have major political and economic repercussions that impact how the value of the currency is traded and what the implications of those trades are. The central authority that manages a Cryptocurrency is able to affect the supply and demand of the Cryptocurrency to meet the needs of its investors. The reason that investors trade Cryptocurts is because they are believed to be safer than traditional currencies, which provide less liquidity and more risk because of the central authority.
