Bitcoin is a digital currency introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. Unlike fiat currencies such as Malaysian Ringgit, bitcoin is decentralized where it is not controlled by any entity and does not rely on governments or banks for issuance and oversight.  Bitcoin allows you to stay pseudonymous while making transaction.

It takes around 10 minutes for someone on the other side of the world to receive bitcoin, rather than traditional remittance which takes a few days. A...

Hence, the majority of experts and most of the community believes that this time will be no different. However, several reports and some well-known experts have voiced their merits that...

The failure of Herstatt was a major factor in the creation of real-time gross settlement systems and other structures that mitigate against settlement risk. It led to the world’s central banks establishing a centralised clearing facility for foreign exchange – the Continuous Linked Settlement (CLS) Bank...
