Cryptocurrencies, sometimes known as "crypto," are digital assets that serve as mediums of trade. Various layers of cryptographic technologies assure the safe storage and movement of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies are often based on decentralized networks and are either issued or managed by central authorities or financial institutions. These decentralized systems rely on publicly accessible distributed ledgers, often known as blockchains, to prevent cryptocurrency from being double-spent.
Private blockchains are more similar to traditional shared databases than public blockchains. Private blockchains, like public blockchains, store records as pre-assembled ledgers on peer-to-peer nodes. Private blockchains, which are more centralised and often rely on third parties to carry out tasks, are more centralized, with organizations or individuals monitoring the network. Private blockchains are not available to the general public, and nodes are frequently non-anonymous entities known to one another, such as manufacturers and suppliers. Powers are delegated to organizations or individuals by an operator or a protocol.

Decentralized exchange users who deposit their cryptocurrencies into liquidity pools are known as liquidity providers. Liquidity pools are cryptocurrency supply pools maintained by decentralized exchanges to boost transaction efficiency. Exchanges compensate liquidity providers with transaction fees from activities that use a liquidity pool, and incentives are distributed based on the amount of money a user has pooled. Using smart contracts, liquidity providers' funds are locked into the pool. Pools are permissionless, which means that anybody can contribute to them. There is one significant disadvantage to liquidity pools. Providers face irreversible loss if the value of their locked-in funds changes and they are unable to exchange them.
Centralized networks are based on a single, centralized server/master node that conducts all significant data handling and stores data and user information that other users may access. Client nodes can then link to the main server and submit data requests rather than performing them directly. The vast majority of web services, such as YouTube, a video streaming service, or your online banking account, are controlled by a centralized network owner, which means that all data exchanges inside these networks must be verified by a third-party authority. Centralized networks are now the most common sort of network on the internet. These networks rely on a single network owner to link all of the other satellite users and devices, indicating that there is a single point of failure which can be used to enter and attack the overall structure.
