About High Performance Blockchain
The High-Performance Blockchain (HPB) project seeks to address the problem of scalability from both the software and hardware aspect of things.
HPB combines a customized hardware Blockchain Offload Engine (BOE) with high-performance blockchain software. The addition of a hardware-based BOE, allows for high transaction speed and extremely low latency. The team claims that ‘there is no compromise in terms of security and decentralization, as the Node network verifies transactions worldwide and is comprised of a dual election mechanism combining the best aspects of voting and delegation’.
How do I buy cryptocurrency?
While some cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, are available for purchase with U.S. dollars, others require that you pay with bitcoin or another cryptocurrency.
To buy cryptocurrencies, you’ll need a “wallet,” an online app that can hold your currency. Generally, you create an account on an exchange, and then you can transfer real money to buy cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum.
Coinbase is one popular cryptocurrency trading exchange where you can create both a wallet and buy and sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
