Barter to crypto

By Roopa Rani Bussa

Contributory Author for Spark Igniting Minds

World is discovering new things,

Ensembling lives with new techniques,

Since long there is buying and selling,

With different currencies periodically!

Goods were exchanged with goods,

Until man created metal and paper,

Coins, notes ruled some centuries,

Monitor monetaries banks jumped in!

Being middlemen banks bloomed,

Driving cash throughout the world,

Computers fore fronted the globe,

Tuning ledgers to digital transactions!

Introduced credit and debit cards,

Replaced travellers’ cheques,

Carry less physical money,

Get saved by steals and thefts!

Yet another modulation in currency,

Introduced sophisticated money,

No coins no middlemen no barter,

Technically it’s called cryptocurrency!

cryptographically stored in block chain,

There is a public key and private key,

All are encrypted under keyboard keys,

Virtual ledger virtual money it’s all BTC!

Good or bad mankind using novel methods,

Centuries practice still holds its belief,

It may take time for general public to accept,

Go with the flow is what we can do!
