What is a blockchain?

A blockchain is a digital ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions. It is constantly growing as “completed” blocks are added to it with a new set of recordings. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. Bitcoin nodes use the block chain to differentiate legitimate Bitcoin transactions from attempts to re-spend coins that have already been spent elsewhere.

What is a Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a payment system, first proposed by an anonymous person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008.

What is a Ethereum?

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of fraud or third party interference.

In Ethereum, all transactions are public and recorded on a shared digital ledger, called a blockchain. This blockchain is secured through a consensus mechanism; in the case of Ethereum, this is achieved through a proof of work algorithm called Ethash.

What is a Litecoin?

Litecoin is a cryptocurrency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin is an open source, global payment network that is fully decentralized without any central authorities.

What is a Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency. Bitcoin Cash is a fork of Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system for the Internet. It is fully decentralized, with no central bank and requires no trusted third parties to operate.

What is a Ripple?

Ripple is a real-time gross settlement system (RTGS), currency exchange and remittance network by Ripple. Also called the Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP) or Ripple protocol, it is built upon a distributed open source Internet protocol, consensus ledger and native cryptocurrency called XRP (ripples).

The network offers instant, certain and low-cost international payments. It supports tokens representing fiat currency, cryptocurrency, commodities, or other units of value such as frequent flier miles or mobile minutes.

What is a Monero?

Monero is a cryptocurrency that focuses on privacy, decentralization, and scalability. It is a secure, private, and untraceable currency system. Monero uses a special kind of cryptography to ensure that all of its transactions remain 100% unlinkable and untraceable.

What is a Dash?

Dash is a cryptocurrency that focuses on privacy and speed. Dash is a portmanteau of digital cash. It was originally released as XCoin (XCO) on January 18, 2014, and then changed its name to Darkcoin on March 5, 2015. On March 25, 2015, Dash was rebranded as Dash.

What is a Zcash?

Zcash is a cryptocurrency that offers privacy and selective transparency of transactions. Zcash is based on the zero-knowledge proof construction called a zk-SNARK developed by our team. This construction allows the network to maintain a secure ledger of balances without revealing the parties or amounts involved. Instead of publicly demonstrating spend-authority and transaction values, the transaction metadata is encrypted and zk-SNARKs are used to prove that nobody is cheating or otherwise breaking the network rules.

What is a Ethereum Classic?

Ethereum Classic is an open-source, decentralized, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. It provides a decentralized Turing-complete virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes.

Ethereum Classic also provides a value token called “classic ether”, which can be transferred between participants, stored in a cryptocurrency wallet and is used to compensate participant nodes for computations performed. The classic ether token is traded on cryptocurrency exchanges under the ticker symbol ETC.

What is a NEM?

NEM is a Peer-to-Peer Crypto Platform. NEM is an open-source project that was launched in March 2015. The NEM mainnet was launched on March 31, 2015, with an initial supply of 8,999,999,999 XEM. NEM is written in Java.

The NEM software provides a framework for implementing contracts, termed “smart assets”, and a modular smart contract scripting language called “Mosaic”.

What is a Bitcoin Gold?

Bitcoin Gold is a cryptocurrency. It is a hard fork of Bitcoin, the open source cryptocurrency. The fork occurred on October 24, 2017, at block 491,407 on the Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin Gold changed Bitcoin’s proof-of-work algorithm from SHA256 to Equihash, rendering specialized mining equipment obsolete in an attempt to democratize the Bitcoin mining process.

As of this today, we have 3500+ crypto in the marketplace and no show of slowing down.
