Cryptocurrency against Fiat money, what is the difference?
The basic difference between classic fiat money and cryptocurrency is that government have full control over the supply of Fiat money.

Decentralized means that no one can control all network. So, If you compare Fiat money (USD, EUR, JPY. etc…) to cryptocurrencies, you will see that Fiat money are control by the group of people and system is set up wrong. Another fact is, that today nobody knows how much fiat money is in circulation. So, the real value is based only on a trust between people. On the beginning money had the golden standard (Every 1 USD must be supported by gold).

Also, Tokens are distributed thru Initial Coin Offering (ICO).
How and where to buy cryptocurrency?
If you would like to buy cryptocurrency, first what you need to exchange your Fiat money into some cryptocurrency. This can be done on some Fiat-crypto exchange like Kraken.com or Coinbase.com. I very recommend deposit money via bank transfer, because credit card fees are really high.

In my opinion strong technological advantages of each coin, market sooner or later approach it. So, a combination of value investing (technology focus) and longterm investing is probably the best way, how to make huge returns on cryptocurrency boom. Crypviz is mainly build for exploring technology advantages/disadvantages of each coin for non-techs people. The knowledge database is all written to be clear and simple for everyone.
