Virtual Currency Market Overview

The market overview explores the world of virtual currency, a form of digital money that is unregulated and not issued or governed by any regulatory authority. With the rapid evolution of online gaming, plastic currency was replaced with game-based virtual currencies and peer-to-peer virtual currencies, which allows users to buy and sell virtual money as per existing exchange rates. Virtual currencies have been in the news in recent months due to their drastic fluctuations, instant publicity, and bad press, especially Bitcoin, since they can be used to purchase goods and for money laundering operations.
