A digital currency is a type of currency available in digital form compared to other forms such as the physical banknotes and coins.

Whether the digital currency is centrally issued and controlled or whether it is based on a decentralised system could mean it is a fiat currency or a cryptocurrency. A digital currency may be independent of any other currency or could be linked to or identical to or pegged to another currency or even a combination or basket of other currencies.
