Ultimate glossary of crypto currency terms, acronyms and abbreviations

I thought it would be really cool to have an ultimate guide for those new to crypto currencies and the terms used. I made this mostly for beginner’s and veterans alike. I’m not sure how much use you will get out of this. Stuff gets lost on Reddit quite easily so I hope this finds its way to you. Included in this list, I have included most of the terms used in crypto-communities. I have compiled this list from a multitude of sources. The list is in alphabetical order and may include some words/terms not exclusive to the crypto world but may be helpful regardless.
2FA
Two factor authentication. I highly advise that you use it.
51% Attack:
A situation where a single malicious individual or group gains control of more than half of a cryptocurrency network’s computing power. Theoretically, it could allow perpetrators to manipulate the system and spend the same coin multiple times, stop other users from completing blocks and make conflicting transactions to a chain that could harm the network.
Address (or Addy):
A unique string of numbers and letters (both upper and lower case) used to send, receive or store cryptocurrency on the network. It is also the public key in a pair of keys needed to sign a digital transaction. Addresses can be shared publicly as a text or in the form of a scannable QR code. They differ between cryptocurrencies. You can’t send Bitcoin to an Ethereum address, for example.
Altcoin (alternative coin): Any digital currency other than Bitcoin. These other currencies are alternatives to Bitcoin regarding features and functionalities (e.g. faster confirmation time, lower price, improved mining algorithm, higher total coin supply). There are hundreds of altcoins, including Ether, Ripple, Litecoin and many many others.
AIRDROP:
An event where the investors/participants are able to receive free tokens or coins into their digital wallet.
AML: Defines Anti-Money Laundering laws**.**
ARBITRAGE:
Getting risk-free profits by trading (simultaneous buying and selling of the cryptocurrency) on two different exchanges which have different prices for the same asset.
Ashdraked:
Being Ashdraked is essentially a more detailed version of being Zhoutonged. It is when you lose all of your invested capital, but you do so specifically by shorting Bitcoin. The expression “Ashdraked” comes from a story of a Romanian cryptocurrency investor who insisted upon shorting BTC, as he had done so successfully in the past. When the price of BTC rose from USD 300 to USD 500, the Romanian investor lost all of his money.
ATH (All Time High):
The highest price ever achieved by a cryptocurrency in its entire history. Alternatively, ATL is all time low
Bearish:
A tendency of prices to fall; a pessimistic expectation that the value of a coin is going to drop.

He is now in the mentally ill meme hall of fame.
Block:
A package of permanently recorded data about transactions occurring every time period (typically about 10 minutes) on the blockchain network. Once a record has been completed and verified, it goes into a blockchain and gives way to the next block. Each block also contains a complex mathematical puzzle with a unique answer, without which new blocks can’t be added to the chain.
Blockchain:
An unchangeable digital record of all transactions ever made in a particular cryptocurrency and shared across thousands of computers worldwide. It has no central authority governing it. Records, or blocks, are chained to each other using a cryptographic signature. They are stored publicly and chronologically, from the genesis block to the latest block, hence the term blockchain. Anyone can have access to the database and yet it remains incredibly difficult to hack.
Bullish:
A tendency of prices to rise; an optimistic expectation that a specific cryptocurrency will do well and its value is going to increase.
BTFD:
Buy the fucking dip. This advise was bestowed upon us by the gods themselves. It is the iron code to crypto enthusiasts.

Dapp (decentralized application):
An open-source application that runs and stores its data on a blockchain network (instead of a central server) to prevent a single failure point. This software is not controlled by the single body – information comes from people providing other people with data or computing power.
Decentralized:
A system with no fundamental control authority that governs the network. Instead, it is jointly managed by all users to the system.
Desktop wallet:
A wallet that stores the private keys on your computer, which allow the spending and management of your bitcoins.
DILDO:
Long red or green candles. This is a crypto signal that tells you that it is not favorable to trade at the moment. Found on candlestick charts.
Digital Signature:
An encrypted digital code attached to an electronic document to prove that the sender is who they say they are and confirm that a transaction is valid and should be accepted by the network.

Fiat currency is legal tender whose value is backed by the government that issued it, such as the US dollar or UK pound.
Fork:
A split in the blockchain, resulting in two separate branches, an original and a new alternate version of the cryptocurrency. As a single blockchain forks into two, they will both run simultaneously on different parts of the network. For example, Bitcoin Cash is a Bitcoin fork.
FOMO:
Fear of missing out.
Frictionless:
A system is frictionless when there are zero transaction costs or trading retraints.
FUD:
Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt regarding the crypto market.
Gas:

BITCOIN is no different than any other digital currency

BITCOIN is no different than any other digital currency, which is essentially created by calculating a specific value. Bitcoin, for example, gives a user access to a single bitcoin as long as the computer can hit 300 trillion hashes per second.

I am a time-traveler from the future, here to beg you to continue what you are doing.

Hello there, again. You may know me from this statement.
I am sending this message from the year 2030. I tried to get in touch earlier, but the magnetic disturbance caused by our nuclear attack prevented me from doing so.
I don’t have much time. They are about to get me. This is likely the last time you will ever hear from me.
Our coordinated attack against the infrastructure of the Internet succeeded. 9.5 Billion people died. All major cities and infrastructure have been destroyed. But Bitcoin is now gone for good and all other forms of digital currency were destroyed in the process as well.
Or so we thought.
Just days after the attack, we observed how countless 200 feet long shiny blue ships emerged from the depths of the Atlantic and Pacific ocean. There were thousands of them. They shot straight into orbit and started circling Earth.
Shortly after, the ships started dropping soccer ball-sized drones which immediately commenced rebuilding telecommunications infrastructure and providing nutrient pills to the survivors.
“The Treasury” has survived. And it was saving the human race from extinction.
Here is some background: After the 2020 Bitcoin halving, as Bitcoin inched closer towards the $1,000,000 per coin mark, Bitcoin’s scalability issues made the network unusable. Miners threatened to take down Bitcoin if users did not submit to their will. The resulting community clash highlighted Decred’s value proposition as a store of value that is controlled by its users, and not external corporations. Shortly after, Decred shot from a price per coin of $5,000, straight to $500,000, almost matching Bitcoin’s market capitalization. Decred’s treasury now had more assets under control than most countries on Earth.
Unfortunately, many “earlies” with more than 10 BTC also survived our attack. They did not only diversify their wealth out of Bitcoin into other assets, like land and Uranium. But, unbeknownst to us, the top Citadels were fully shielded against nuclear attacks.
The word has spread that I traveled to the year 2014 to warn all of you of what was going to happen. The most powerful Bitcoin earlies are now trying to get me and my machine. If they get me, which they likely will very soon, they will travel back in time to undo our attack.
They will also try to stop “The Treasury”.
I heard rumors that they are planning to pay famous individuals and organizations to start a trend we refer to as “Bitcoin maximalism”. Through it, they will manipulate the public by trying to delegitimize all forms of digital currency other than Bitcoin, including Decred.
You can’t let them do that. Decred is humanity’s last hope.
Protect “The Treasury” with your life.

Whats up with Kraken not having Dash?

After todays Kraken news about them purchasing 2 companies, I got to thinking why the hell doesn't Kraken offer Dash? Why would they ignore the 5th largest crypto?
From the FAQ:
Can I trade digital currencies other than Bitcoin? Yes. You can trade Bitcoin (XBT), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH) with cash currencies. You can also trade Bitcoin with Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (XDG), Ripple (XRP), Namecoin (NMC), Stellar (STR) and Ven (XVN).

Will we be able to create a better digital currency than Bitcoin or any other altcoins using Maidsafe?

Bitcoins and other blockchain technologies are the best digital currencies right now but they still have certain things that could be considered weaknesses like 10 minute confirmation times, centralization of mining, large storage space needed to run a full node, inefficient use of electricity etc. I understand it's possible to build applications on top of Maidsafe. Could someone with a more technical understanding of Maidsafe tell me if it's possible to build a digital currency on the Maidsafe network that solves some of these problems? It seems like if this is possible, it could potentially make things like Etherium, sidechains, treechains etc obsolete.

Covid has little to do with a bad virus, and everything to do with restructuring the financial system

The IMF is running its annual meetings in Andorra at the moment.
The director of the IMF said on Thursday last week :
> Today we face a new Bretton Woods “moment.”
Now, what were the Bretton Woods agreements about ?. These were about setting up a new system under which gold was the basis for the U.S. dollar and other currencies were pegged to the U.S. dollar’s value. The Bretton Woods Agreement also created two important organizations—the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
What could a new Bretton Woods moment mean in this context ? It means they are restructuring the current monetary system. Under the new system, the USD is replaced by a digital currency.
A central bank-supported digital currency could replace the dollar as the global hedge currency, said Bank of England governor Mark Carney
Carney highlighted the dollar’s use in international securities issuance, its use as the primary settlement currency for international trades and the fact that companies use dollars as examples of its dominance. However, “developments in the U.S. economy, by affecting the dollar exchange rate, can have large spillover effects to the rest of the world.”
Fed Chair Jerome Powell noted he did not believe private sector involvement in the production of U.S. dollars would be trusted by the citizens. “I do think this is something that the central banks have to design,” Powell said. “The private sector is not involved in creating the money supply, that’s something the central bank does.”
As if it was not obvious, central banks don't want a bitcoin/dogecoin/monero/pokemoncoin, etc... currency. They want to fully control the new digital currency, like they control current fiat currencies.
Back to the IMF director's speech, she states 3 imperatives moving forward : the first 2 are about economic policies, and the 3rd one is about climate change.
Just as the pandemic has shown that we can no longer ignore health precautions, we can no longer afford to ignore climate change—my third imperative.
That 3rd one is surprising. What does climate change has to do with the IMF and the definition of a new monetary system ?
Here is a very interesting article about how this all relates to bill gates' mass vaccination agenda.
In an article published by ID2020 in 2018, vaccines are the perfect way to introduce digital identity to the world – especially infants. This identity would also be used to grant access to basic rights and services.
Your new digital ID will then be matched with your new digital currency issued by your central bank. They will have the absolute, uncontested right to decide whether you can have access to basic rights and services, or not. It will only take a click on the mouse to deny your access to basic rights and services. And you won't know the reason. It could be for wrong thinking, it could be to pursue another political agenda to eliminate whichever community they decided they need to eliminate. We have seen plenty of evidence this year about the strong political bias that big social media platforms have. Now, with the constant monitoring and analyzing of our data, they can easily tell what are our political opinions. And therefore have your access to basic rights and services denied with a click, if you have the 'wrong' political opinions. And I don't see why they would not do that. In a very close future, you could end up in a situation where you have to choose between being allowed to eat, or vote for the candidate you don't like, but that the system endorses. It's literally the end of democracy, and freedom, and there is no going back once we have switched to this new system.
All the above is not even a conspiracy. It's merely about connecting the dots, and understanding the implications.
edit: here is a video of Accenture, one of the founding partners of id2020, explaining about the digital dollar
I think covid was a catalyst to bring all these changes. Who else than the international financial system has the ability to have all countries on the planet to comply with such severe restriction rules that send their respective economies and societies down the toilet ?
