- 100% security against falsification, which no attacker can overcome
- lack of a single emission center, printing press, central bank, because each cryptocurrency is its own Central Bank

According to the participants of the CoinFest-2015-Moscow Moscow conference, the widespread use of cryptocurrencies will be a decisive step towards decentralization of global financial and economic processes.
Without a doubt, the conference was held as another serious step towards the development of new, modern technologies of financial settlements.
And, although for the vast majority of the population and Russian entrepreneurs, the use of cryptocurrencies in payments is an exotic rarity practically not used by them, it’s worth remembering that some 10-13 years ago, the webmoney and Yandex money e-wallets that were usual for us today were the same curiosity , and five years ago cryptocurrencies did not exist at all.
