Then the speaker Edwin Orrico spoke, who introduced the public to the methods and ways to protect their investments in Dash and other cryptocurrencies, as well as the most effective ways of digital protection.
During his speech, the expert in cybersecurity presented a historical account of the different mechanisms, financial mechanisms have used secret codes, or cryptography, as a method to protect information or capital, being cryptocurrencies a "technological leap" in this form of security. "The cryptocurrencies are just the evolution of money thanks to the Blockchain technology," says Orrico.
When comparing cryptocurrencies with the traditional banking system, Orrico explained that digital currencies offer a public key, which works like the number of a bank account, but that, unlike banking, these currencies incorporate the novelty of a private key that it is only known by the user and with which he can protect his capital. With this, the lecturer stressed that cryptocurrencies offer the user the possibility of "becoming their own bank".
Among the recommendations given by Orrico for the security of the cryptocurrencies, they highlighted: distributing the funds in different wallets, the use of cold wallets or paper wallets, which are physical, and can not be hacked, the configuration of security passwords of the wallets and smartphones, as well as avoiding entry to suspicious websites.
"An attacker will always go for the weakest link, which is the person," said the speaker. "As computers are stronger, then we protect the Blockchain, which in doing so we become stronger."
The end of the meeting was marked by a dynamic that sought to foster cooperation among the attendees, remembering that Dash's message is not about competition but the collaboration of all Venezuelans to "generate more opportunities" in the country.
