Sharing Is Caring

By now almost everyone should be familiar with most of the terms used in the crypto-space. If you are not familiar, here are some basic commonly used terms and their definitions: 

Cryptocurrency is a digital currency designed to work as a medium of exchange enabling direct payments between individuals. Cryptocurrencies leverage blockchain technology to gain decentralization, full transparency and absolute immutability. The cryptocurrency transactions are recorded on blockchains – also known as digital or public ledgers. The tech allows digital information to be distributed, but not copied. The most common categorization of cryptocurrencies are: tokens and (alt)coins. Altcoins (alternative coins) is usually referred as coins that are variants of Bitcoin, built using Bitcoin’s code but with different features. Coins run on their own blockchain. For example there is  Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), NEO (NEO) and many others. Tokens represent a particular asset or utility. They are created by using a template of the blockchain one wants to build upon. TERN is one of many examples of a token. TERN is created on top of the Stellar Network because of its very low transaction fees and super-fast transaction times. 

With any new technology there are some challenges. Which wallet should we use? Where to buy or transfer cryptocurrencies? Where do we securely store our wallet information? These are some of the questions people often ask.  According to Chainalysis between 2.3 and 3.7 million Bitcoins are lost due a variety of reasons, with the most prominent one being losing access to private keys. That’s a staggering number and precautions should be taken when it comes to storing your private key. You certainly don’t want to lose your crypto, right? 

You can easily use the “Transfer” function from your personal BlockCard account. With the “transfer” function you can send TERN to anyone, even if they do not have a BlockCard account. Just type the e-mail address of the person you want to send your TERN to and they will receive an e-mail stating they received TERN. To have access to the TERN that was sent to them, all they will need to do is create a BlockCard account with the same e-mail address and their funds will be immediately available to them. No more multiple wallets needed, no more risk of losing private keys and no chance of sending your funds to the wrong person. It cannot get any easier than that.
