A
Is a digital record of transactions. in which individual records, called blocks, are linked together in single list, called a chain. Blockchains are used for recording transactions made with cryptocurrencies and have many other applications. Transaction added to a blockchain are validated by multiple computers on the Internet. These systems form a peer-to-peer network working together to ensure each transaction is valid before it is added to the blockchain.

Blockchains are used for recording transactions made with cryptocurrencies and have many other applications. Transaction added to a blockchain are validated by multiple computers on the Internet. These systems form a peer-to-peer network working together to ensure each transaction is valid before it is added to the blockchain.

This decentralized network of computers ensures a single system cannot add invalid blocks to the chain.

When a new block is added to a blockchain, it is linked to the previous block using a cryptographic hash generated from the contents of the previous block. This ensures the chain is never broken and that each block is permanently recorded. It is also intentionally difficult to alter past transactions in blockchain since all the subsequent blocks must be altered first.

C
A digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank.

Is a process in which transactions for various forms of cryptocurrency are verified and added to the blockchain digital ledger.

A crypto wallet is a software program where cryptocurrencies are stored. This is not a physical location but is a private key or secret number for every cryptocurrency address that is saved in the wallet of the person who owns the balance. Cryptocurrencies can also be stored on hardware such as a personal thumb drive.

F
A government issued currency such as the US dollar or Euro.

When a blockchain splits into two separate chains. Forks generally happen in the crypto-world when new ‘governance rules’ are built into the blockchain’s code. (See Bitcoin Cash)

I
Initial Coin Offering where startups issue a new token in exchange for Ethereum, Bitcoin or Fiat. The wording comes from the classic securities markets and is derived from IPO (Initial Public Offering). ICO does not require much from regulatory standpoint to be launched and traded internationally but it cannot be sold to US buyers unless it passes heavy regulation.
M
The process of solving the next block in the chain. This requires major computer processing capabilities to accomplish and is rewarded with ether when successful.
T
Cryptocurrency generated on a blockchain platform such as Ethereum, Tron, EOS, or Cardano. They do not have their own underling blockchain protocol. Token also feature their own symbols and they can be bought, sold or traded just like any other cryptocurrency. Most ICOs and STOs are launched as tokens, because it requires a lot less work and alleviates many security issues.
S
Platforms such as Ethereum, Tron, EOS, or Cardano allow to form scripts on their blockchains. Those scripts form a digital contract, where some action would take place, given a certain event. What makes smart contracts so valuable is that are formed on blockchain, they do not rely on 3rd party (lawyers, courts etc.), they are irreversible/unmodifiable and they do not require maintenance once they are in place.

Securities Token Offering is similar in its structure to an ICO; however, STOs pass through much more due diligence, they register as "securities" with US Government, and they are offered to a limited number of qualified investors in US. Internationally these tokens can be offered to the same investor base as an ICO.
