OxfordDictionaries.com, the online language resource owned by the Oxford University Press, has added new cryptocurrency-related definitions.
The resource added new definitions for terms related to bitcoin mining as well, according to Katherine Connor Martin, head of US dictionaries for the Oxford University Press.
OxfordDictionaries.com is distinct from the Oxford English Dictionary. According to its publisher, whereas the site "focuses on the current language and practical usage", the Oxford English Dictionary is aimed at portraying "how words and meanings have changed over time".
