List of Cryptocurrencies

List of Cryptocurrencies - Although there are more than 2000 cryptocurrency technically, few are relevant. Of them, even the market capitalization is less than $ 1 million.

Below is a list of important cryptocurrency and additional resources that you can use to learn more about all the different types of cryptocurrency.

NOTE: We created this site in 2015, here three years later (in 2018) the market has evolved and changed a considerable amount. Thus, presenting a list of cryptocurrency changing from a natural thing to do is an impossible task for sites that don't make the cryptocurrency list the main focus. For a list of most cryptocurrency at this time, you can see Our short list below will focus only on a few of the top coins that have made it for years or which are still relevant today and will take note of some upcoming coins.

List of 2015 - 2018 Top Cryptocurrency
To start this page, let's first look at the top 10 or more cryptocurrency for 2015 - 2018 to find out which ones are stuck and which ones are important in the coming years.

This list is made by us ( and is based on familiarity, market capitalization (total coins ever produced multiplied by the current value), the ease with which coins can be traded for fiat currencies such as the US dollar, and potential coins to survive the trend.

In other words, this is a coin that we think is the most valid investment (in general, not at a certain time) and worth exploring for users of new coins (not just coins with the highest market capitalization, value, or highest relevance) alone). By saying that, the "best" list must have a bias, and this applies to this list too. Don't hesitate to make a decision.

In our opinion, the most relevant cryptocurrency here in 2018 is:

  • Bitcoin: Bitcoin is an easy choice. It is the main digital currency that can be used; has the highest market capitalization; the coins are traded at the highest cost of all cryptocurrency (around USD 225 per June 2015, but as high as $ 5,000 during the beginning of September 2017). Apart from the large price increase, Bitcoin seems to be the best choice for anyone entering the cryptocurrency space. This is the most familiar and invested coin. Especially Bitcoin is the reason anyone talks about cryptocurrency. You might not want to start a CPU-based Bitcoin mining company in 2017 or start buying coins of $ 5,000 each (which doesn't matter because you can buy coins) but will still occupy the first position on our list.
  • Litecoin: Litecoin is probably the second most important digital coin [true in 2015, still relevant today]. It has the third highest market capitalization in June 2015, but today is closer to 7. Even though it has decreased, CPU mining is still possible, people know what Litecoin is, basically using the same Bitcoin technology, and it costs around 1/50 - 1 / 100 of what Bitcoin does (depending on the day). Litecoin is very similar to Bitcoin before the entire 'Silk Road' controversy, or as some would say "Litecoin is like Bitcoin except with values ​​closer to what people of digital coin have in rational sense. market."
  • Ethereum: Probably the third most important coin [here in 2018, I think that this is the second most important coin after Bitcoin]. Ethereum does not have a long life above like Litecoin, but it has some unique features and market capitalization that make it a true competitor. Most ICO (Initial Coin Offer) uses Ethereum. This has a less scary cost than Bitcoin and has the second highest market capitalization. On that note, Ethereum Classic is also famous. Ethereum is a spin-off (aka "hard fork") of what is not now called Ethereum classic (like how our next coin, Bitcoin money, is a spin-off from Bitcoin.) NOTE: Ethereum is a fork from another relevant coin called Ethereum Classic.
  • Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Forks: Cash Bitcoin is a spin-off from bitcoin, intended to have faster transactions, choose and be implemented by the Bitcoin community. Bitcoin Cash is probably the most successful Bitcoin fork in history, but there are always new forks popping up. Maybe Bitcoin Gold, Diamond Bitcoin, Bitcoin SV, or others will catch ... even though history says this is a rare event. Watch your fork, but don't expect it to be guaranteed a fixed Bitcoin strength. The Bitcoin fork is an interesting altcoin, but chances are Bitcoin will never really challenge the top position. The concept here is that Bitcoin is very relevant so it's important to keep an eye on the car, especially those that have actually been through the storm so far, Bitcoin Cash.
  • Ripple (XRP): Ripple (better known as XRP) tends to have a stable price because of its large supply. It has endurance over time. This is a popular and fast alternative to Bitcoin that is often more unstable than other coins at the top of the list.
  • IOTA: IOTA is a popular coin with a large supply (meaning there are many MIOTA out there). It has one of the highest market capitalization at the moment because the technology behind it is adopted by several large companies such as Cisco Systems Inc., Volkswagen AG, and Samsung Group. Any coins in the top 10 based on market capitalization are noteworthy. IOTA is no exception.
  • Darkcoin (Dash): Darkcoin, known as the Dash on March 25, 2015 (dash = digital cash), but previously known as XCoin, has a unique function. XCoin was developed by Evan Duffield who wanted to increase Bitcoin but did not have the urge to do so. Because of this, he developed his own coins. It takes less power to mine Dash than most coins. Using less energy to mine is important because mining coins is one of the most wasteful processes you can imagine. Wasteful mining processes are key to the security and stability of all coins that use a "proof of work" system. This prevents people from mining too fast. However, environmentally, it is a nightmare. In 2015 we said, "People know what Darkcoin is. Hopefully this familiarity is rolling into Dash "(today some people remember XCoin and Darkcoin, and Dash is a famous crypto). Back in 2015, Dash was one of the high value coins. Today is still true, and Dash has done almost all competitors like Ethereum.
  • Tether and other stable coins: Tether is intended to reflect the price of the US dollar. There are several criticisms that need to be considered. But if you want stable coins for temporary use, Tether tends to be a good choice. It is not an investment; it is a place to park your value in crypto when you are between coins. With that in mind, someone must dismiss TUSD, PAX, USDC, or DAI.
Below is a coin that is no longer in our suggestion list. They look great in 2015, but they don't last long. Consider we recorded Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dash in 2015, and we recorded the coins below. If you invest in it at that time, you do it very well. That said, not being included in the list does not make this coin a bad bet; that just means they aren't as attractive as they once were:
  • Namecoin: In 2015 Namecoin looked promising, here in 2017 there is a little less hype. Even so, Namecoin remains famous. Namecoin is almost the same as Bitcoin. It was the first "fork" of Bitcoin software. This is based on Bitcoin and has the same unit limit, but has some adjustments in data storage. Namecoin will initially only be an upgrade to Bitcoin, but people are nervous that it will cause problems. So Namecoin is similar to Bitcoin, but like all non-Bitcoin currencies, it is worth a fraction of Bitcoin. A solid background and a reasonable price point make it a relatively good coin to invest. Of all the coins recorded so far, Namecoin has done the worst so far. Prices are still very low in USD.
  • Nxt: Not only does this good coin have a name similar to other Steve Job companies; use cool and different algorithms to produce coins. This algorithm - an implementation of the proof of ownership scheme rather than proof of employment - may be less burdensome to the environment and has long-term potential. It might be worth a little less than the other coins we recommend; worth about a penny on a good day. However, less cost per coin means you have less to lose if the value of the coin deflates. Nxt like Namecoin. It has a very cool code but does not perform at the same level as other cryptos (until the end of 2017 where it sees a marked price increase). Prices are still very low in USD.
  • Peercoin: Like Nxt, Peercoin (abbreviated as PPC) uses a proof of ownership system; actually, it's the first proof of ownership coin. It is worth around $ 0.40 to the USD and has a market capitalization of almost ten million. This coin has everything for it and is probably a smart bet as far as cryptocurrency goes. As a bonus for coin trust and quality, Peercoin was developed by Sunny King. Sunny King is, or maybe, someone who created Bitcoin or other coins, or maybe Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent. It's hard to say because the culture of cryptocurrency prioritizes peer-to-peer, code, and coins above the developer. Still, he is important, and likes it or not small things like this can be a determining factor whether a coin sinks or swims in a new market. Peercoin has stories like Nxt and Namecoin where they are long-running coins.
  • Dogecoin: Dogecoin (such as the "Doge" internet meme about a dog and misspelling) has the 7th highest market capitalization in June 2015. In 2017 it is still a competitor even though it is still more than one in early 2017. Individual coins are not worth as many coins others on the list, but their value and popularity remain relatively stable despite ups and downs. Dogecoin uses important technology that is the same as Bitcoin with some important technical differences. Like Coinye West that failed, Dogecoin is only in it for lolz (eg, it was made as a joke), but unlike Coinye, Dogecoin is very popular. Why do we recommend joke coins? Because this is a popular coin and today the only funny part about it is its name (and it is a mascot and background story). This is very similar to Litecoin - a coin that is quite cheap with a level of consumer confidence. Dogecoin has, one might argue, changing the origins of their comedy is a reason to make their coins "fun and friendly," which is a long-term smart move. It is also the only major cryptocurrency with the Domain Top-level .com name and is one of the few that tries to reach audiences outside of technicians and cryptographic cryptography. In September 2017, Dogecoin has beaten its value. One can argue that the root as a joke coin is not as great as a long-term strategy as it has ever been (although one can argue that the volatility it sees is just business as usual in the cryptocurrency space.)
Other honorable mentions: Cardano (ADA), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zero-ex or 0x (ZRX), Tron (TRX), Zcash, EOS, NEO, NEM, Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), Monero (XMR), and some others all have decent values, familiarity and respectable market capitalization. Some even have better exchange rates at this time than our best choice for coins, and who knows, all of these can be the top coins in the future. So, be sure not to overlook other predecessors (or even some strange altcoins with interesting code or a large user base to note). We can easily see an existing altcoin or even a new coin appearing at the top of the list at any time (for example Verge completes this during the altcoin boom in 2017 - 2018). The cryptocurrency market is young and volatile, so anything can happen over time. The past is a good indicator of the future in crypto, but things change and the future is really any coin game.

TIP: Top coins based on market capitalization are usually the best bets. Most of today's top coins are at the top of the list in 2015. There are a few high coins on the list today that you should be aware of, for example, Bitconnect. There are a number of new ones, such as Bitcoin forks, Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold, which are just on the list. Meanwhile, there are some who can't stand the test of time, like Peercoin. As a rule of thumb, historically, the higher the coin is on the list, the more solid it is investment over time.

Note: In most cases, you will have difficulty trading anything other than Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum for actual fiat (fiat being centrally issued state money). You can trade most coins in an online cryptocurrency exchange, and you can use several coins to buy certain items online, but converting altcoin to fiat currency means converting to large coins (usually BTC or ETH) first. Coins that have a theoretical value in USD do not mean that anyone will give you USD or pay that exchange for your coins. This is more like selling penny stocks or trading one baseball card for another than actually having money. So, keep that in mind and market and coin volatility when investing.

Suggestions from 2015: As a rule of thumb, don't acquire any volatile assets that you can't afford to lose. This is a valuable guideline for investment in general. It is important to look at the history of Bitcoin values. At the end of 2013 and early 2014, Bitcoin received great attention from the Media, and the price of all coins increased wildly and made no sense. Since then most coins have leveled up twice the value before 2014, but there is still plenty of room for prices to fall. History has shown us that there is plenty of room to go up too. $ 1,000 Bitcoin? That happened once; it can happen again.

Suggestion from 2018: All the suggestions above are still valid. All we have to do is change the numbers. There is plenty of room to ride but, today there is also more room to go down. Crypto is still risky, but crypto is also still an attractive prospect for those who are willing to take risks.
