Beyond Bitcoin – Altcoins

Bitcoin set the groundwork for the exciting world of cryptocurrencies, pushing the boundaries and reimagining how we view finance. However, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Enter altcoins, the myriad of cryptocurrencies (not including Bitcoin) that open up diverse digital asset investment opportunities

Altcoins, or alternative cryptocurrencies, represent a diverse and evolving category within the broader cryptocurrency ecosystem

What are Altcoins?

Altcoin is a term that broadly refers to all cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin. The name “Altcoin” is a blend of two words – ‘alternative’ and ‘coin’. Together, they represent a world of digital currencies that propose alternate solutions or advancements to the original Bitcoin protocol.

Altcoins leverage the fundamental ideas of Bitcoin – decentralization, security, transparency – while also offering distinctive features, such as smart contracts, improved privacy, or energy-efficient consensus mechanisms like proof-of-stake.

The World of Altcoins

There are currently thousands of altcoins available, each offering unique features and uses. These include, but are not limited to:

Ethereum (ETH): Known for its capability to execute “smart contracts” and host decentralized applications (DApps). https://ethereum.org/ #2

Ripple (XRP): Designed to make international transactions cheaper and faster. https://ripple.com/

Litecoin (LTC): Increased block generation speed with a different hashing algorithm. https://litecoin.org/

Cardano (ADA): Built with a research-based approach aiming to deliver advanced features for smart contracts. https://cardano.org/

Polkadot (DOT): Enables the sharing of information and functionality between different blockchains.
