A blockchain is a decentralized database that uses encryption to verify digital transactions made across a computer network. Although the technical details of a blockchain may seem overwhelmingly complex, the basic design elements are quite simple. The four most basic design elements in a blockchain are nodes, public ledgers, blocks, and chains. Nodes are individual computers, or clients, that connect to one another through a blockchain protocol. Public ledgers record all transactions made over the blockchain protocol. Blocks are a list of verified transactions that will be added to a public ledger. Chains connect blocks of verified transactions by linking them to one another in the public ledger.
The popularity of alternative online investment platforms has become worrisome in recent times. Adopting explorative methodology, this chapter examines the discursive practices of truth, lies and deception inherent in Ponzi and Pyramid schemes through their method of operation, recruitment strategies, products/services and reward system via Bitconnect, OneCoin, and Zarfund – three online-based Ponzi schemes. The study reveals that the greatest deception of Ponzi schemes lies in the high returns they promise to potential investors and the low work requirement. These claims make it difficult for potential investors to make rational decisions before investing. This study recommends that proper evaluation and due diligence – basic financial literacy – be conducted before investing in any AFIP. Alternatively, expert advice may be sort before any financial commitment.
Digital currencies are Internet-based currencies that do not require physical banknotes or coins. Unlike traditional currency, which is backed by a government treasury, digital currencies can be decentralized, meaning their value is not backed by any single institution or government entity. Digital currencies first began to appear in the 1990s, and later innovations in digital cryptography in the twenty-first century gave rise to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple. Cryptocurrencies are decentralized forms of digital currency that allow peer-to-peer transactions and keep a permanent record of all transactions for which the unit of currency is used.
