What is e-currency?

One of the major electronic currencies that has existed for over 5 years is E-gold. This is an online payment system backed by real gold. You have an account similar to a bank account and your gold is kept in it. E-gold itself does not buy or sell e-gold, you have to do it through an e-currency exchanger. Once you have e-gold in your account, you can spend it on any merchant who accepts payment this way.
Another good e-currency is Pecunix. This is again an online payment system backed by gold. Pecunix essentially works the same way as E-gold, so they don’t buy or sell their own currency and it is kept in your account again.
There are many more online currency systems, including C-gold (secured by gold), Liberty Reserve (secured by gold) and Paypal (secured by credit cards).
