### 6.2 Front Matter
Fil this file with this exact content:
```
---

{% t global.lang_tag %}
{% tf resources/moneropedia/account.md %}
```
### 6.2 Make the localized File
Navigate to the /\_i18n/en/resources/moneropedia folder and make a new file. give it the same <name>.md than in previous step.
Start the file with the front Matter:
```

terms: ["PUT", "TERMS", "HERE", "EXPLAINED", "BELOW"]
summary: "PUT SUMMARY OF YOUR ENTRY HERE IN QUOTES"
---
```
There is one thing to highlight. The `terms:` section of the front matter can be filled with as many terms as you would like. This is how other Moneropedia entries will link to this page. You can link to other Moneropedia entries as well in your page by putting an ampersand before the term used, i.e. `@THE-TERM-USED`. This will make an automatic link in the Moneropedia entry to the referred term, replace the @term with the word used in that terms `entry:` area of the front matter, and on hover it will show the summary. How cool is that?

Write your Moneropedia entry. Remember that you can link to other Moneropedia entries using `@term-used-in-entry` as described above. Just go to the .md file of the Moneropedia entry you want to link to and use any of the terms in the `terms:` field of the front matter.

### 14.3 Translate the file
Here you can do your translation. Depending on the page, you may have to maneuver around some HTML or markdown. In general, anything between two tags (such as `<p>TRANSLATE THIS</p>`) should be fine. Testing is VERY important, so do NOT skip step 13.4. If during testing, the page appears different from the original English page (besides the translated text of course), you did something wrong and may have to start again.
#### 14.3.2 Notes for Moneropedia Entries
Moneropedia entries have two specificities:
* The Front Matter:
Moneropedia Fron should be translated for both *entry:* and *summary:* elements. However, *terms:* should be extanded with their translation, leaving the English words **untouched**.
This is really important for compatibility purposes. With this, if a new guide is added to the site, an English term on the untranslated version of the guide in another language could be linked to the moneropedia article (of the same language).
* The old *unstranslated* snippet must be removed, therefor the next section 14.4 is irrelevant here.
Finally, your entry should go from:
```
---
entry: "Entry name in English"
terms: ["English", "terms"]
summary: "English summary."
---
{% include untranslated.html %}
```
To:
```
---
entry: "Translated entry name"
terms: ["English", "terms", "translated", "terms"]
summary: "Translated summary."
---
```
### 14.4 set the 'translated' snippet to true
Somewhere on the page (usually the top) should be a snippet that says `{% include disclaimer.html translated="false" version=page.version %}`. Simply change this to `{% include disclaimer.html translated="true" version=page.version %}`. This will remove the orange bar from the bottom saying the page is untranslated.

Your account is based on two keys, a @spend-key and a @view-key. The @spend-key is special in that it is the single key required to spend your Monero funds, whereas the @view-key allows you to reveal your @transactions to a third party, for example for auditing or accounting purposes.

### The Basics
A @blockchain is a distributed database that continuously grows with a record of all of the transactions that have occurred with a given cryptocurrency. This database is often referred to as a ledger because the data contains a large list of transactions that have taken place. In Monero, these transactions are packaged together into 'blocks' every 2 minutes (on average) and all miners and nodes on the network have copies of these blocks.

### Monero's @Blockchain
Unlike Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, transactions in the Monero @blockchain do not reveal where funds came from or went to, providing anonymity and making the currency completely @fungible. Additionally, the amounts of all transactions are hidden by @RingCT, a feature of Monero. For auditing or other transparency purposes a user can share a @view-key to prove they control certain amounts of @Moneroj.

The input is a "deposit" to your account that you are able to spend. Outputs are the part of the transaction that tells the Monero network where to send the funds.
You might have multiple inputs in your account, in many different denominations (For example: you deposited 0.5 XMR on Friday, and 0.75 XMR on Saturday). So, when have a transaction with an input of 0.5 XMR, but you only want to send 0.1 XMR, your transaction will include a @fee to pay the @miner, an output for 0.1 XMR to send to the recipient, and the rest that you want to send back to yourself will be an output back to you (this is called "change"). Once the transaction is completed, the change becomes available to you as an input that you can again split and send with a new transaction.

### More Information
Cryptocurrency is the generic term for a large set of digital assets that use encryption techniques to generate units of currency, verify the transactions, and transfer value. Generally, cryptocurrencies are considered to be decentralized. Cryptocurrency should not be confused with virtual currency which is a type of digital money that is usually controlled by it's creators or developers. (Some examples of virtual currency are gametime in World of Warcraft, ROBUX in Roblox, reward points programs, or Ripple, all of which can be exchanged for currency or cash value, but are not considered cryptocurrency because they are centalized and controlled/issued by a single entity).

Not all cryptocurrencies operate the same, but they usually share the properties of @decentralization, encryption, and the ability to send and receive transactions. Most are irreversible, pseudonymous, global, and permissionless. Most aim to be a @store-of-value or be digital cash that allows you to transact.

Most are irreversible, pseudonymous, global, and permissionless. Most aim to be a store-of-value or be digital cash that allows you to transact.
Most cryptocurrencies (including Monero) use a distributed ledger (called a @blockchain) to keep track of previous transactions . The blockchain serves to tell other users on the network that transactions have happened. There are many different ways for cryptocurrencies to create their blockchain, and not all are the same. Monero uses @proof-of-work to craft blocks, where other cryptocurrencies may use proof-of-stake or other consolidated methods.

Ultimately, cryptocurrency is an attempt to create @trustless value; that is free from borders, governments, and banks. Whether that be to transact or to be digital gold is up to the users of each.
