I live in a country where a certain national currency is used as legal tender. I do not understand how the local money works (e.g. how the national money supply is increased), nevertheless I can easily use it in my everyday life, for example to earn wages and pay for food. One factor that makes the local currency easy to use is that there is no alternative. In most circumstances I cannot pay with another currency.
Being interested in criptocurrencies, I'm faced with a difficult choice: Which currency do I want to use? Being an ignorant fool and unwilling to educate myself on how cryptocurrencies work—
How do I choose a cryptocurrency to use (and support)?
