Cryptocurrencies aren't just about money.

Cryptocurrencies are technology.

At a foundational level, cryptocurrencies are all software - code - that runs on hardware - nodes -  across a vast network of more software and hardware.

Software and hardware work together to bring us this new technology that's a  digital, decentralized, distributed public ledger enabling peer-to-peer transactions that are secure, transparent, and verifiable.

Now we just have to get better at understanding what all that means.

That means learning more about cryptography and encryption, and how miners and validators keep the blockchain moving along.
