Futures Contract

In finance, a futures contract (sometimes called futures) is a standardized legal agreement to buy or sell something at a predetermined price at a specified time in the future, between parties not known to each other. The asset transacted is usually a commodity or financial instrument. The predetermined price the parties agree to buy and sell the asset for is known as the forward price. The specified time in the future—which is when delivery and payment occur—is known as the delivery date. Because it is a function of an underlying asset, a futures contract is a derivative product. Contracts are negotiated at futures exchanges, which act as a marketplace between buyers and sellers. The buyer of a contract is said to be the long position holder, and the selling party is said to be the short position holder.

Fundamental Analysis

Fundamental analysis, in accounting and finance, is the analysis of a business's financial statements (usually to analyze the business's assets, liabilities, and earnings); health; and competitors and markets. It also considers the overall state of the economy and factors including interest rates, production, earnings, employment, GDP, housing, manufacturing and management.

Fork

Fork may refer to: Chain fork (the occurrence of multiple blocks at the same height), Hardfork (a change to the protocol that makes previously invalid events valid), Softfork (a change to the protocol that would only invalidate previous transactions), or Code fork (an altcoin that is a derivative of Bitcoin).

Fiat Currency

Fiat money is a currency (a medium of exchange) established as money, often by government regulation. Fiat money does not have intrinsic value and does not have use value (inherent utility, such as a cow or beaver pelt might have). It has value only because a government maintains its value, or because parties engaging in exchange agree on its value. It was introduced as an alternative to commodity money (a medium which has its own intrinsic value) and representative money (money which represents something with intrinsic value).

Faucet

Faucet is a reward system in form of a website or an app, which distributes the reward among the users for completing some task (for example, entering of captcha or any other given in the description). Bitcoin-faucet is a system, where Satoshis are used as a reward (this is how a one-hundred millionth part of Bitcoin is called). Chronologically, the first faucets appeared for Bitcoins exactly; they were developed by Gavin Andresen, the chief research worker of Bitcoin Foundation in 2010.

Full Node

Any computer that connects to the Bitcoin network is called a node. Nodes that fully verify all of the rules of Bitcoin are called full nodes. The most popular software implementation of full nodes is called Bitcoin Core.
