* In an attempt to educated and inform the world about cryptocurrency; this Post will be updated regularly to serve as a go-to option for clarification of the crypto vocabulary*

If you have ever looked into cryptocurrency (aside from just googling the word Bitcoin) you are likely to have been met with an onslaught of phrases and expressions that took you for a ride. From advanced technological developments to misspellings to memes to the moon and back, the crypto-verse has truly offered itself to all extremes of language. It does, however, seem only natural that with the invention and introduction of something entirely new into everyday life that a linguistic expansion follows suit. But come on, how can anything less be expected from the first global decentralized infrastructure?

🧐Lets Dive in:🧐

51% Attack - A brute force attack on a crypto network. Conducted by directing more computational power than half (%51) of what the network currently uses, with the intention of manipulating the consensus mechanism (typically for gains made through double spending). Imagine this as a democratic voting procedure - majority always wins consensus.

Address - an alphanumeric string of characters that represent a reservoir/destination where crypto can be sent to and from

AirDrop - A method of distributing cryptocurrency in which market participants do not need to exchange their existing assets for a new one; but rather receive it based on some prerequisite factors (such as holding a parallel cryptocurrency)

Air Gap - to physically isolate computers from any exterior devices or information sources. Also known as a “closed-circuit” design, the purpose of air gaping is to maximize control over data flow.

Algorithm - Coded instructions or rules that are executed by a computer to -solve problems.

AltCoin - The umbrella term used to define all crypto assets that are not Bitcoin. The Alt simply stands for Alternative.

AML - the acronym for Anti — Money — Laundering. A legal framework that is intended to subvert criminal financial activity.

API - Application Program Interface. A software that basically tells other software’s how they should interact with each other.

Arbitrage - the act of “risk-free” profiteering by trading an asset between multiple different markets.

ASIC - Application Specific Integrated Circuit.

ASIC Miner - mining equipment that is dedicated entirely for the purpose of mining. *(think unfair monopolization of the POW systems in crypto-verse)*

ATH - All Time High. Refers to the highest price ever reached by an asset.

ATL - All Time Low. Refers to the Lowest prices and asset has ever been at.

ATM - Analog Traditional Money / All Traditional Money. Popularized in the NON-crypto world as an automated teller machine; the crypto communities refined the acronym with decentralized digital frameworks.

Atomic Swap- A method employed within crypto networks that allows users to exchange assets directly into other assets directly from their wallets without a centralized exchange.

Bag Holder - A cryptocurrency trader / investor that is stuck holding large amounts of some crypto asset that have severely depreciated and cannot be sold back into the market for a relatively decent price.

BIP - Bitcoin Improvement Protocol.

Bit - a unit of measurement that is computationally represented as a 0 or 1 in binary code. Moreover, it is a unit of account for fractions of a Bitcoin; 1,000,000 Bits is equal to 1 Bitcoin.

BitCoin - founded & released in January 2009, Bitcoin is the first digital currency of its kind & ground 0 for the entire crypto world as we know it. Not to mention, the most widely adopted and famous crypto.

Block - A immutable digital file which stores information regarding any and all activity on the network. Each block has its own timestamp, Merkle Tree hash, digital signatures, and transactions. This structure helps to maintain a chronological sequencing. (Just picture a block is an equivalent to a page in a book).

Blockchain - The software that allows for a decentralized fabric of trust exists. A chronological series of “blocks” that are linked together and act as the spine or backbone of the digital ecosystem.

Block Height - The numeric representation, showing what is the current number of the block being hashed.

Block Reward - The compensation that is paid out by the internal mechanism to keep nodes/ miners incentivized to operate.

BUIDL - A clever play off of the word Build. Made up by the“crypto-cultural” nature of misspelling. (Please refer to HODL)

Burning - A method by which tokens become unspendable (commonly by just being sent to an unspendable address) and thus serve as deflationary mechanism.

Byzantine Fault Tolerance - The elaborate methodology designed to address the Byzantine General’s Problem in decentralized or distributed computing mechanisms. A mathematic/cryptographic approach that attempts to guarantee solvency in the events of error in data transmission (ex. incomplete data, data loss, data inconsistency, and so on)

Centralized - Owned by and benefited off of by one party. A structure in which the involvement of is guaranteed by subjection to another party which explicitly owns the said object of interest. Think money(politically owned), data (owned by big tech companies), and so on.

Censorship - The act of suppressing or vetting any “unwanted(as deemed so by the meddling censoring party)” and filtering information in a biased format. [Basically somebody only shows you what they want you to see as opposed to the entirety of the context]

Censorship resistant - Something that is not susceptible to being filtered by any meddling middle-entities. [tolerant to institutional opposition]

CEX - Centralized EXchange. Just an abbreviation used to express centralized exchange without actually writing it out. But in and of itself, it is any Market exchange platform: NYSE, NADAX, the list goes on.

Confirmation - validation of a transaction / series of transactions. In the Bitcoin blockchain, each individual transaction must be validated by 6 independent nodes in order to be considered as a true act.

Consensus - a brief, recurring state of the network that constitutes a widespread agreement on a subject. The term used to describe how a network conjugates in order to maintain a distributed anonymous method of guaranteeing the integrity of itself.

CryptoCurrency - A digital/virtual asset that is secured by advanced cryptography and by its nature not owned by any ONE entity

Cryptography - A technique using codes and ciphers to encrypt and decrypt sensitive information, messages or data. The art of privatizing and ousting unwanted actors from information.

DAE - Decentralized Asset Ecosystem. An acronym within the cryptoverse that is used to describe any platform capable of supporting crypto asset exchanges.

DAG - Directed Acyclic Graph. It is a data structure that uses topological logic solving, commonly used for finding optimal GPS routs, scheduling, general data processing, and even data compression.

DAO - Decentralized Autonomous Organization. A collective of entities that converge on some unified concept and operate as one organism.

DAPP - Decentralized APPlication; the main benefits of decentralized applications are immutability, accountability, anonymity, and enormous bandwidth (not to mention control over personal data).

DDoS - the abbreviation for Distributed Denial Of Service. A cyber attack, in which the malicious actor(s) bombard a server with traffic from multiple devices.

Decentralized - Owned by no one entity. Ownership is spread out to whoever wants to join. Previously only thought to be objects classified as commodities (nobody actually owns gold [once you possess gold you owe nobody nothing for owning it] — {as opposed to a phone which no matter what you attempt to do some part will be monopolized on your needs, including but not limited to: charging it-electricity, using it-service providers, and so on}) and now is possible on a digital layer.

Deep/ Dark Web - the un-indexed outskirts of the internet. Typically accessed through a virtual proxy network, this is the home to the infamous Silk Road.

DeFi - the choice acronym used to reference to Decentralized Finance.

Deflation - the economic side effect of value accrual; when something is deflationary it is limited in supply and highly demanded, directly cascading into a self-fulfilling prophecy of Price Hike.

Delegated - A network structure that segments the flow of data based on authoritative access to the data silos/ reservoirs.

Demurrage - a form of penalization implemented into certain cryptocurrency protocols that taxes the wallets of unused assets. Say you hodl 10,000 EOS and don’t want to touch them for 5 years, well too bad for you because your balance will begin to deplete.

DEX - a Decentralized EXchange; the terminology used to quickly address and exchange that is decentralized.

Difficulty - a measure of the computational resources required to solve the hash of the next block. This is the methodology which helps the network maintain a 10 minute block time (adjusted automatically every 2016 blocks).

DLT - Distributed Ledger Technology.

Double Spending - the malicious act of spending the same currency twice by subverting the networks hashrate and mining off-ledger. The entity that has to bear the price of such activities tend to be cryptocurrency exchanges.

DTM - Digital Tokens and Money (can also be deciphered into Decentralized tokens and Money). An up and coming terminology used to address the entirety of the blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital financial ecosystem.

👇 *!!! Please understand that by raw design these are refereed to as tokens 👇 because they are not meant to be currencies!!!* 👇

ERC-20 - The most popular Token protocol for use on the Ethereum Network. Deciphered into: Ethereum request for Comments — 20 as in the request digital fingerprint (the numbers simply represent a unique identifier from its concurrent protocol brethren [refer ☝above and below👇for other protocol examples]. Also known as a “Utility token”, its actual functionality on the ethereum network is “access/interactivity” to DAPPS.

ERC-223 - An updated version of the ERC-20 protocol, with a few extra modularized aspects of the assets inter-ecosystemic interaction. (basically modifying the “transfer” function of the smart contract; which {for the devs out here} lets the contract deny incoming transactions from unsupported assets. [Eg. Somebody accidentally sends Bitcoin or NEO to an Ethereum contract, in the framework of the standard ERC-20 protocol, that someone would just lose their assets. which are sent to some digital Void and can not ever be returned.]

ERC-721 - The smart contract which merged “digital uniqueness” into ERC token ecosystems. Also commonly referred to as the protocol/standard for “digital collectibles”, this was the birth grounds of Crypto-Kitties. Within this protocol; Each an every token is unique and in someway provably/identifiable different from each and and every other one of itself. [Eg. Cryptoflames makes a digital art gallery and transfers the ownership of some physical world art piece to display on their native digital counterpart. There are 100 Crypto Flame tokens minted and cryptoflame token #33 represents a “link” the Mona Lisa’s ownership; while cryptoflame token #77 represent a “link” to a drawing by Sally from Nebraska.] Then the value of the cryptoflames network can be extrapolated by summation of the real life valuations of the underlying physical assets.]

ERC-827 - The ethereum network’s newborn “prodigy child” standard. This protocol framework is able to now relay more than just the raw value transfer, it can relay the associated transaction and network information/data with a minute, micro cost adjustment (approximately 100 lines of added code). Laying the road for huge, immutable decentralized network backed, near instant nationwide data transfer.

ERC-884 - The framework created to allow blockchain integration into the financial channels of the state of Delaware, America (circa 2017, based on the states draft law). Has a built in requirement: investor “white-listing”- the decentralized digital equivalent of KYC & AML.

ERC-948 - also acclaimed as the “B2C Businessman's Dream” protocol; this token framework incorporates a digital overlay of the subscription model economic structures in and onto a smart contract.

☝*!!! Please understand that by raw design these are refereed to as tokens ☝because they are not meant to be currencies!!!*☝

Escrow - A practice of recruiting some outside force to help mediate in any transaction; to guarantee compliance on all involved parties ends.

Faucet- typically a website that gives away a minute amount of cryptocurrency for visiting or completing captcha’s.

FIAT Currency - what we know as the political denomination of money(s). Money that is backed by political positioning and global influential strength.

Federated Network - A topological network architecture that allows multiple independent networks to pool and distribute their computational resources in order to optimize this networks quality and optimize it’s resources.

Flappening - LiteCoin’s (LTC) takeover of BCH(BitCoinCash) in overall value within the crypto markets. “LTC supercedes BCH in overall growth, importance, and raw value”.

Flippening - a hypothetical event that happens within the crypto verse; in which: Bitcoin loses its first place dominance to Ethereum.

FOMO - Fear Of Missing Out. Commonly regarded as the driving force behind enormous bull rallies in times of bull markets — the huge parabolic explosions we so love (and profit from).

Fork - A network split. Usually happens when there is some necessary software code update that requires ditching the previous copy of the code (Hard & Soft)

FUD - Fear Uncertainty and Doubt. An abbreviation for the terminology used to refer to very dark and unsettling times regarding the future of something. An example would be: fake media propaganda saying that Bitcoin is dead because the Chinese government will ban its mining operations. What happened shortly after? Price went up. What is true today? It has been banned and partially unbanned in China. Who knows what the next round of Bullsiht is on the way — just be ready 🥂

GAS - the blockchain agnostic/universal term (gwei on Ethereum, gas on NEO, etc) used to refer to the micro payments that help coordinate transaction digestion.

Genesis Block - The very first block of the Bitcoin network. Block 1. The Baby block which began the infinite future of finance, Bitcoin. 👶

GPU - Graphics Processing Unit. The hardware device that is needed in order to compute the mathematical hashing process underlying the mining on the Bitcoin Blockchain.

Halving - The procedure of reducing the mining rewards on a blockchain. For the Bitcoin network, this occurs once every 4 years or approximately the time it takes to mine 210,000 blocks. Starting at 50, the Bitcoin reward Halved to 25 in 2012, then halved again to 12.5 in 2016. Coming up, a halving to 6.25! (live countdown timer)

Hard Fork - A complete change to a cryptocurrency’s protocol. Usually a change in some very fundamental aspect of the code (such as the privacy protocol or consensus mechanism).

Hash - a fixed length string representing some mind of input data. In Bitcoin’s case, a hash is created from following a very specific set of instructions and points to previous data.

Hash Rate - The unit of measurement of a network’s processing power.

HODL- a misspelled version of HOLD. Once upon a time, in a crypto forum an enthusiast posted a status in which he accidentally wrote hodl instead of hold; It caught on like wildfire.

ICO - Initial Coin Offering. A crowdfunding mechanism that incorporates decentralization; by being able to host a “trustless” method of value transfer, entities can now go directly to the public and raise funds; as opposed to relying on some intermediary to mediate the process & touch the funding.

Immutable - (when addressing Data) Not susceptible to any altercation, change, manipulation, or editing after its original creation. (*The way that today's data structures have been formatted to function are in what is known as the CRUDCreate, Read, Update, Delete format. — The BlockChain data structure has given us a data format that is just CR (Create — Read).

Inflation - An increase in the price level of good relative to its economic standing. For example: if all products in the local deli went up by 20% (milk from 2–2.40, eggs from 1–1.20, bread 1.50–1.80) then that is a likely representation that commodities remain stable and the currency is suffering from severe depreciation.

Inputs - A Reference to the outputs in a transaction that when added up reflect the leftover spendable balance of the correlating address.

KYC - Acronym for “Know Your Customer”. A set of rules laid out by the government for companies to obtain a certain amount of information from their participants.

Laundry - Otherwise known as “mixing services”. A method of enhancing privacy and anonymity. Done by pooling transactions together and shuffling them around with the help of certain ciphering algorithms.

Layer 2 - also called second layer; is a protocol that is built ON TOP OF another protocol in order to leverage back-end systems operation to the first layer and manipulate the parameters of the first layer. (If Bitcoin can only process 9 TPS and some financial company who wants to build on it needs to handle 350 TPS then they would use a Layer 2 solution {such as lighting network} and “funnel” transactions through their portal and send the hash reference of 350 transactions as though it were just 1 transaction.

Lightning Network - a payment protocol, that can be layered on top of any blockchain-based cryptocurrency.

Merged Mining - A form of mining in which one miner is able to spread his computational resources and participate in the mining and discovery of multiple cryptos at the same time.

MicroTransaction- a transaction that is so small it begins to teeter on being unprofitable to be hosted. Historically, it would be a sum which falls under the $1.00 reference point.

mBTC - the bitcoin metric used to reveal balances to the 0.001 (thousandth).

Mining - the process in which nodes compete with each other to verify and publish transactions. For Bitcoin, mining would include compiling all previous block metrics with current ones and trying to solve a super complex computationally demanding puzzle.

Miner - the node/ node operator which chooses to participate in the gamefied/incentivized process of extracting bitcoin and securing its network.

Mining Pool - A group of miners that have unified their computing resources in order to distribute the mining rewards more consistently between its participants.

Minting - rewarding users with newly created coins for their participation in securing the network. More common with Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrencies.

MemPool - the repository where where transactions that haven’t been dealt with yet are stored. A pool of all the data that hasn't been processed by the network yet.

Money Laundering - The illegal act of trying to hide criminally obtained funds through means that cannot be traced. (Politicians favorite buzzword regarding crypto)

Mooning - the verb used to identify the action of radical price growth.

Mt. Gox - A Japanese Bitcoin exchange that collapsed due to poor security and fund management in the year 2014.

Mutable - liable/susceptible to change — in computer & data science it refers to Data’s susceptibility to being edited/changed/manipulated. (please refer to immutable above)

NFC - Acronym for “Near Field Communication”. A new method of short-range wireless communication which requires minimal power. Just think apple pay tapping of the phone & credit cards)

Node - A computer/device that connects to a cryptocurrency network and helps strengthen the network's resilience.

Nonce - A (pseudo)random number, generated in order to satisfy the parameters required by the mining and hashing algorithms.

OffChain Transactions - transactions that are not made on the native crypto chains themselves in order to avoid bloating/ congestion.

Orphaned Block - a valid block that has been abandoned by the network due to a fork. Later on, it is adopted back onto the chain to which it originally belonged.

Open Source - Software that available to the public at no cost, typically found on github.

Output - the part of a transaction which contains instructions for sending crypto.

Paper Wallet - a form of cold storage of cryptocurrency, where the private keys and the receiving address is printed out.

P2P - Peer-to-Peer. A structure of data distribution and information sharing where there exists no point of failure outside of the participant.

PreMining- A term used to describe a metric of a new blockchain related to the genesis formation. Bitcoin was not premised, rather it began its operations at 1; other chains such as BTCP was only available after 5% of the total supply was already extracted into the private hands of the organizers.

Private Key - one of the two Keys involved with all public cryptographic interactions. The private key is the key which proves ownership of an address, do not share this with anyone!

Public key - the key that is used in order to represent the counterpart of ownership of an address. This is the key that is shared with the public in order to receive funds at an address as well as backtrack the correlating addresses history.

QR code - Quick response code. A pictograph depiction of some API that can be machine scanner read.

REKT - read as wreaked. A Phraseology born within the crypto-verse used to reference beginner crypto traders getting heavily punished by the markets.

Satoshi Nakomoto - The pseudonym/ entity that created and release Bitcoin + Blockchain + Distributed Ledger technology to the masses 🤘

Scalability - the extent to which a platform can be built upon and modified vertically, while sustaining its integrity and data flow. [If Ethereum can handle 20 transactions per second {onchain} but somebody trying to utilize the native ethereum chain for some sort of project that will require 200 transactions per second — we have a scalability problem. The project cannot scale to satisfy the need of the customer ((I used Ethereum as just an example — i love ethereum and have nothing against them))

Scamcoin/Shitcoin - the terminology created by the decentralized crypto community to refer to projects that are (as the name would have it) garbage/ dead end fakes.

Script - a hashing process that can be implemented into proof-of-work cryptocurrencies in order to modify the protocols consensus parameters.

Shill - unsolicited propagation of crypto projects. Commonly used in a derogatory fashion to address the “inappropriate” marketing conducted by crypto project fanboys.

Seed - The private key used in deterministic systems. The birth of randomness on a digital scale. The reason bitcoin can only be touted as being pseudo-random is that the seed from which the blockchain’s genesis block was birthed can actually be mathematically identified (with advanced enough

Signature - also called a digital/cryptographic signature; is a mathematical mechanism that is intrinsically designed to supplant the digital ecosphere with a counterpart to a biological human signature.

Smart Contract/Self Executing Contract - algorithms that facilitate and enforce obligations without any outside intervention. Stored on the blockchain itself, a smart contract is an unalterable agreement that has specific logic operations akin to a real-world contract. Once signed, it can never be altered.

SEC - Securities & Exchange Commission. The Organization / Federal body that is responsible for creating & up keeping a financial and economic legal framework.

SegWit - Segregated Witness. a soft fork improvement to the Bitcoin code which helps the network handle more transactions.

Side Chains - Blockchain ecosystems that are designed to function in a 2-way feed. Essentially children chains pegged to the “Motherchain” for on and off-ramping. (Think Ethereum Tokens which are then converted as collateral to obtain DAI stablecoins)

Signature (Digital Signature) - a mathematical process that is utilized in order to prove digital ownership. Designed to be collision resistant, the methods currently employed are as effective as a regular biological fingerprint.

Silk Road - while just a distant memory now, the silk road was a permission-less marketplace hosted in the depth of the Deep/Dark Web. Notoriously used to facilitate drug transactions, credit must be given in its role to jump start and perpetuate the role and need for something like Bitcoin.

SneakerNet - The exchange of crypto assets “hand-to-hand” or off grid. While the terminology existed before the arrival of cryptocurrencies, its innate functionalities complement the decentralized digital ecosystem perfectly!

Spoofing - the malicious act of subverting some communications systems privacy and security protocols by disguising false alien actors as honest friendly actors. Typically more prevalent in centralized systems that require some sort of hardware/software authorization.

SPV - Simplified Payment Verification. Typically to utilize the blockchain for payments, the using client would need an entire copy of the chain. This allows mobile clients to make payments without the needing to have a copy of the entire blockchain.

Stale Block - A block that has already been solved. Usually a term more popular among the techie side of crypto enthusiasts, it simply refers to a block that can no longer reward miners.

STO - Security Token Offer. After the expected meddling from government bodies with the decentralized crypto ecosystem, a legal framework protocol was synthesized to accommodate the “Law of the Land”.

Soft Fork- A change network protocol that is backward compatible; so nodes are not by any means forced to upgrade and still benefit from its implementation.

Taint - The measure of correlation between two addresses. While this is a term likely not to be commonly encountered, it is just an attempt to track a coin's history.

TCP/IP - Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol. The standard the devices today use to interact with internet communication.

Testnet - an ecosystem where developers can freely interact with the code of a blockchain to experiment around with it.

Timestamp - the time metric data merely serves the function of proving when something has happened.

Token Protocol/Token - a programming standard framework that attempts to bridge the physical and digital realms of value. That bridge can be represented as a form of Utility/access to certain environments. In the case of Ethereum — Ethereum is a COIN, it is the HOST+Platform for decentralized software innovation — — ERC-20 tokens (pick any) is a framework which allows for interaction + access with the according mothering platform’s decentralized DAPP ecosystem.

Tokenomics - Merging the words Token and Economics; we are met with yet another crypto-cultural play on words. Used to address the metrics and token role within it’s ecosystem.

TOR- The Onion Router. An anonymized web surfing tool that is commonly used to access the deep/dark web — It helps circumvent any censorship that browsers / service providers may hang on us.

Total Supply - The absolute maximum amount of a cryptocurrency that can be produced.

TPS - Transactions Per Second. An abbreviation that is most commonly met in the written lexicon within the crypto-verse.

Transaction Fee - the fee that a user decides to pay(not necessary) in order to have their transaction tended to. This hierarchical structure is used in order to boost the ecosystems inner competitive gears and incentivize more actors to strengthen the network's integrity.

Trustless - Not having to resort to weather or not interacting parties are capable of delivering on their end. Leveraging DLT’s we can help breed a more trustless economic digital fabric (as opposed to having to rely on the old centralized technologies of SWIFT); its imperative to note blockchains do not actually remove the need for trustless, will-nilly financial economic interaction, the just radically minimize the need for “trusting those involved active parties”.

Unspendable Address - A dummy address with which tokens can only have a one way interaction — in. Used for depleting ecosystems of their circulating supply (refer to burning above)

Utility Token - The class of Tokens that specifies the “need for the token” being to access/utilize {hence the name} some proprietary (or in crypto’s case not so proprietary) technology.

UX / UI - User Experience / User Interface. Used to gauge the success of an application’s design; typically measured by how simply and easily a user can interact with the underlying systems. Think, a design that is so simple your grandmother could use it without trying.

Vanity Address - An address on a crypto network that is formatted with the desired content. The equivalent of a license plate.

Virgin Bitcoin - also a lesser popular term, used to address a bitcoin that has been mined but not spent.

Wallet - a storage faculty for cryptocurrencies. A software that allows users to store their cryptocurrencies in a UI/UX friendly way. Abundant in formats; paper wallet, web wallet, desktop wallet, hardware, and mobile wallets.

Weak Hands - a term used by the crypto community, as well as traditional financial communities, to refer to participants of the open markets that cannot handle heavily volition markets and sell preemptively to market fruition. [little time investors whom fall victim to institutional manipulation and are easily “shaken out” of the market, usually for a loss.

Whale - The term used to refer to very high net worth crypto wallet addresses (individuals) or high value on & off-chain transactions. [A whale would be somebody who owns sufficiently enough of an asset that their decisions as what to do with it on the open markets would directly and noticeably impact the assets trading price].

White-Paper - a report or guide that is used to inform the public of a project's specifications. The equivalent of a business prospectus or plan.

ZeroCoin - a project initially aimed at Bitcoin to help guarantee its network’s privacy feature.

Zero Confirmation transaction/ Unconfirmed transaction - A transaction that has been relayed to nodes in the network, but has not yet been incorporated into a block.
