Cryptocurrency is becoming what some call “the next Internet of finance.” Spearheaded by Bitcoin in 2008 and beyond, Cryptocurrency has become one of the most notable items of interest to investors worldwide. Anyone can invest as they please; all it takes is access to purchase a coin on an exchange and some easily learned technical knowledge, and you can get started as soon as today.
Monetary value aside, cryptocurrency promises a much brighter future worldwide by providing decentralized, anonymous outlets of ingenuity. Some of the software coming out of these digital coins via the blockchain rivals the greatest that Apple and Google had to offer in the 90’s. And we’re just in the beginning. As of writing (2018) we’re in the Wild Wild West… it’s just getting started. Alternative Cryptocurrency coins (Altcoins) are popping up every month promising something new to offer the world. Each approaches a different aspect of innovation and seeks not to compete but to complement.
