Japanese programmers announced a number of idealistic features of digital money, which can be applied for Internet payments without commissions, control, authorization, and intermediaries.

The main thing is to follow the news on the Internet and also newspapers, as far as there is something good happening in the world – it will cause the market’s growing, and on the contrary – bad news can cause cryptocurrencies’ market falling.
