1) WHAT IS CRYPTOCURRENCY?
Cryptocurrencies are being mentioned more and more frequently in the media and the related technology is also becoming more commonplace in the financial sector. The virtual currency system is gradually moving into the mainstream.
A cryptocurrency is a virtual, also referred to as a digital, currency. It is a digital asset that acts as a medium of exchange of value. Cryptocurrencies act as alternatives to physical currency. The name “crypto”- currency stems from the fact that the virtual currency system applies principles of cryptography to secure transactions made in the digital system. Cryptographic measures are also used to control the supply of digital currency that is in circulation.
1) Bitcoin: Market Cap Jul 17: 38.2 USD Billion
The original and most popular cryptocurrency to date is Bitcoin. Bitcoin has become the closest cryptocurrency that is mainstream in usage with over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepting bitcoin as payment as of 2015. Further to this recent research from Cambridge University has indicated that for 2017 there are 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of which are using Bitcoin.
2) Ethereum: Market Cap Jul 17: 19.4 USD Billion
Set up by a programmer initially involved in Bitcoin, Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed platform that was formed based on an argument that Bitcoin lacked a general scripting language for application development. As such, to overcome this design issue, Ethereum developed a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).
3) Ripple: Market Cap Jul 17: 6.4 USD Billion
The primary reason people use Ripple is that it allows users to complete cross currency transactions in between 3 to 5 seconds whilst maintaining users privacy. The system is set up specifically as a real-time gross settlement system (RTGS) with the focused purpose of being used as a currency exchange.
4) Litecoin: Market Cap Jul 17: 2.1 USD Billion
Litecoin is very similar to Bitcoin. However, Litecoin does offer users numerous technical advantages over Bitcoin. One of the key features is the Lightning Network which allows a larger number of transactions to be processed by the network per unit time. This has made the currency favorable for those looking for the least frictions and bottlenecks in processing.
5) Dash: Market Cap Jul 17: 1.4 USD Billion
Dash (previously named Darkcoin) is an open source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that offers everything that Bitcoin offers with a number of additional features. The currency offers instant transactions through its InstantSend platform and private transactions through its PrivateSend technology – these two features have made Dash increasingly popular with users.
