Cryptocurrency is an encrypted currency controlled by a community aside from a bank. Being encrypted means it cannot be tracked. This makes it ideal for users of the Deep Web and black markets. But in recent years people have found that investing in these "coins" could be a very big money maker. For example Bitcoin started at $10 in 2013 and as the years went on and popularity for the currency grew it eventually hit $20,000 in 2018.
