In order to use Phoenixcoin, you need some client software also known as digital wallet. It maintains a local copy of the Phoenixcoin block chain where all transactions are stored, allows you to send and receive coins as well as to check your balance at any moment. It makes your computer a part of the Phoenixcoin network and communicates with the other network members also known as peers. Phoenixcoin is a decentralised currency, so there is no central authority to supervise it. Peers control the operations by global consensus. Every peer is a master of his own.
