Bitcoin (BTC) is the world’s first decentralized digital currency and payment system and is by far the most known and valuable cryptocurrency. It was created in 2009 by an anonymous person or group called Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin enables transactions to be sent peer-to-peer without passing through a central authority. The transactions are recorded on a decentralized public ledger called the blockchain and each payment acquires a small transaction fee to cover the cost of the network. The total supply of Bitcoin is 21 million and it’s smallest unit of bitcoin is called a Satoshi, it’s a hundred millionth of a bitcoin – 0.00000001 BTC. The creation of Bitcoin’s is happening through mining. Miners have the task to validate transactions and keep the network secure. Their efforts are rewarded by new minted Bitcoins and transactions fees. Bitcoin can be exchanged for fiat or other cryptocurrencies, products and services. Over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepts bitcoin as a payment.

In April 2019, a UK corporate filing stated that Coinbase's non-U.S. revenue grew 20% to €153 million (U.S.$173 million) in 2018 resulting in a net profit of €6.6 million.[37] Coinbase UK CEO Zeeshan Feroz said the company's non-U.S. operations accounted for nearly one-third of the company's overall revenue and Reuters estimated that the company's global revenue totaled "around $520 million" in 2018.[38]

For those of you who have not been paying attention to one of the biggest trends in investing and tech, cryptocurrencies are digital currencies using encryption techniques that regulate the generation of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. Units of currency are created through a process referred to as mining.

         其原理是:假设两个使用IP协议的站点A、B通过第三层交换机进行通信,发送站点A在开始发送时,把自己的IP地址与B站的IP地址比较,判断B站是否与自己在同一子网内。若目的站B与发送站A在同一子网内,则进行二层的转发。若两个站点不在同一子网内,如发送站A要与目的站B通信,发送站A要向“缺省网关”发出ARP(地址解析)封包,而“缺省网关”的IP地址其实是三层交换机的三层交换模块。当发送站A对“缺省网关”的IP地址广播出一个ARP请求时,如果三层交换模块在以前的通信过程中已经知道B站的MAC地址,则向发送站A回复B的MAC地址。否则三层交换模块根据路由信息向B站广播一个ARP请求,B站得到此ARP请求后向三层交换模块回复其MAC地址,三层交换模块保存此地址并回复给发送站A,同时将B站的MAC地址发送到二层交换引擎的MAC地址表中。从这以后,当A向B发送的数据包便全部交给二层交换处理,信息得以高速交换。由于仅仅在路由过程中才需要三层处理,绝大部分数据都通过二层交换转发,因此三层交换机的速度很快,接近二层交换机的速度,同时比相同路由器的价格低很多。
