Cryptography

What does Cryptography mean in crypto terms?

Cryptography is a fundamental branch of mathematics and computer science focused on securing communication and data. It involves creating written or generated codes that allow information to be kept secret. In the context of cryptocurrencies, cryptography secures transactions, controls the creation of new units, and secures the assets' safety. It uses a pair of keys (public and private) for encrypting and decrypting information, ensuring that only the intended recipients can access the transmitted data. Cryptography is vital for maintaining integrity, confidentiality, and authenticity in the digital realm, providing the foundation for online privacy and security.
