An account is essentially the record in an accounting system whose purpose is to track the financial activities of a specific asset, expense, revenue, equity or liability. All of these records can increase and decrease as specific events occur throughout the accounting period. Every individual account is stored in a general ledger, where it can be used to prepare the financial statements at the end of the accounting period.

In other words, accounts are these records or statements of financial expenditure and receipts that relate to a particular period or purpose.  

In the world of crypto, this is referred to as a cryptocurrency account. It gives you certain benefits, and it is a requirement in order to use just about any cryptocurrency exchange. A cryptocurrency account gives you access to hot wallets, which allow you to quickly buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies, and it gives you an identity or a way through which you can hold onto your public keys when it comes to the aforementioned process. 

You can also receive certain promotions through your account, and it is generally used on your end to manage everything on the platform or exchange you choose to participate in. Your account is essentially your main command console where you can configure everything to your liking, from specific preferences to spending limits.
