Crytocurrency Coins, News, How-tos, and Education

Learn about the technical aspects of cryptocurrency.

Crytocurrency has been in use since 2009, when a developer (or multiple developers) with the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin. The surprising rise of bitcoin’s popularity over the decade after it was created has paved the way for thousands of other cryptocurrencies to be brought into existence.

As of 2023, there are around nearly 30,000 different types of cryptocurrencies in existence. Each of these cryptocurrencies is used primarily as a medium of value exchange, in many ways similar to how the US dollar and other forms of paper money are used.
