A centralized cryptocurrency is a digital currency system that is controlled and managed by a central authority or entity. In this type of system, a single organization or group has complete control over the issuance, distribution, and transactions of the cryptocurrency.


Centralized cryptocurrencies usually have a central governing body that makes all the decisions regarding the protocol, rules, and policies of the currency. They also typically require users to trust this central authority to act in their best interest and properly manage the currency.


Examples of centralized cryptocurrencies include Ripple (XRP) and Tether (USDT), where a central company or organization has control over the supply and management of the currency.
