What are CryptoCurrencies?
A cryptocurrency, also referred to as a digital currency, is a currency that utilizes encryption techniques to regulate the generation of units of currency, called “tokens” or “coins”. For a cryptocurrency to be successful, it must also be able to verify the transfer of currency, operating in a decentralized manner, apart from a central bank or financial institution.
Most cryptocurrencies accomplish this by using a public blockchain. This means that all transactions are made available on a decentralized public ledger so anyone can check the validity of a transaction at any given time.
It was only a few years ago when Bitcoin was the only cryptocurrency available. Once Bitcoin succeeded in proving its concept, many more currencies began springing up. Thanks to a large selection of Bitcoin exchange sites which are available in virtually every country worldwide, you can now easily trade Bitcoin and USD for other cryptocurrencies instantly.
CryptoCurrency Market Capitalization
The cryptocurrency market really began in 2009 when Bitcoin first got onto the scene. Since that time, there have been new and innovative digital currencies popping up nearly every day. Though Bitcoin remains the dominant cryptocurrency, at the time of this post (August 2017) there are nearly 1,000 unique cryptocurrencies available on the market. To be more precise – as of August 7th, 2017 there are approximately 840 different cryptocurrencies.
It is expected that the total market cap on cryptocurrencies will reach $1 trillion USD within the next decade. Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by both 24 hour trading volume and market cap, alone has a current market capitalization of over $50 Billion USD. The next largest crypto, Ethereum, has a current market cap of nearly $25 Billion USD (August 2017).
