Ethereum: Is probably the third most important coin [here in 2018, I’d argue that it is the second most important after Bitcoin]. Ethereum doesn’t have the longevity at the top like Litecoin, but it has some unique features and a market cap that make it a real contender. Most ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) use Ethereum. It has a less intimidating cost that Bitcoin and has the second highest market cap. On that note, Ethereum classic is also notable. Ethereum is a spin-off (aka “hard fork”) from what isn’t today called Ethereum classic (like how our next up coin, Bitcoin cash, is a spin-off of Bitcoin.) NOTE: Ethereum is a fork of another relevant coin called Ethereum Classic.
Launched in 2015, Ethereum is a decentralized software platform that enables Smart Contracts and Distributed Applications (DApps) to be built and run without any downtime, fraud, control or interference from a third party. The applications on ethereum are run on its platform-specific cryptographic token, ether. Ether is like a vehicle for moving around on the ethereum platform, and is sought by mostly developers looking to develop and run applications inside ethereum, or now by investors looking to make purchases of other digital currencies using ether. During 2014, ethereum launched a pre-sale for ether which received an overwhelming response; this helped to usher in the age of the initial coin offering (ICO). According to ethereum, it can be used to “codify, decentralize, secure and trade just about anything.” Following the attack on the DAO in 2016, Ethereum was split into Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC). As of February 9, 2019, Ethereum (ETH) had a market cap of $12.49 billion and a per token value of $118.71.

There are several different types of cryptocurrency wallets that cater for different needs. If your priority is privacy, you might want to opt for a paper or a hardware wallet. Those are the most secure ways of storing your crypto funds. There are also ‘cold’ (offline) wallets that are stored on your hard drive and online wallets, which can either be affiliated with exchanges or with independent platforms.
You don‘t need to understand details about SHA 256. It‘s only important you know that it can be the basis of a cryptologic puzzle the miners compete to solve. After finding a solution, a miner can build a block and add it to the blockchain. As an incentive, he has the right to add a so-called coinbase transaction that gives him a specific number of Bitcoins. This is the only way to create valid Bitcoins.
Dieses dezentrale Konzept verspricht große Anonymität und diverse Sicherheiten. Fällt nämlich ein Server der Netzwerkes aus, kann ein anderer Rechner seine Leistung unmittelbar zur Verfügung stellen. So ist es theoretisch sogar möglich, selbst in die Infrastruktur der Kryptowährungen einzusteigen und eigene Rechnerleistungen und Server bereitzustellen.

Groestlcoin is a privacy centric Peer-to-Peer (P2P) cryptocurrency that was launched in 2014. It was developed to be an ASIC resistant version of Bitcoin. They were able to achieve a number of important firsts including being the first coin to implement Segregated Witness and it was also the first to perform a Lightning Network transaction on the mainnet Groestlcoin is a PoW cryptocurrency and it is unique in that it is one of the few coins that make use of the Grøstl-512 mining algorithm. This is less complex than Bitcoin's algorithm which means that it is still possible to mine this coin with your GPU. There is a maximum supply of 105 million GRS and so far, just over 72 million are in circulation. The coin also has a much shorter block time of only 1 minutes with a large total supply and weekly subsidy halvings. This all contributes to cheap and fast transaction times. You can send 10,000 GRS and the cost will be far less than a penny. The developers behind the Groestlcoin project are anonymous but have a well-established reputation in the community. This team has been regularly updating the protocol as evidenced by the extremely active GitHub repositories. The project has some of the most active repositories in the cryptocurrency market currently. There is also a pretty active community behind Groestlcoin which could be an invaluable factor when it comes to long term adoption of the coin. GRS has had quite a rocky ride since its initial listings on exchanges back in 2014. It reached an all time high in the 2018 bull run of $1.64. However, since the bear market has begun to bite it has followed the rest of the market lower. GRS is currently listed on a number of exchanges although the bulk of the volume is on UpBit and Binance. There is strong volume and liquidity in the token on these exchanges but the tokens remain quite volatile.
Als Einstieg wählen sie die Geschichte unseres Währungssystems, die mir die gewachsene Verflechtung von Staat und Banken klar gemacht hat. Sie gehen dann zur Entstehungsgeschichte des Bitcoins über und wie die Gemeinschaft in den ersten Jahren wächst. Wichtige Akteure, mit Ausnahme von Satoshi Nakamoto, dem Begründer des Bitcoin, haben sie direkt befragt, so dass man ein atmosphärisches Bild aus dieser Zeit bekommt. Sie erläutern die Nachteile des „normalen“ Zahlungsverkehrs per Kreditkarte und wie Bitcoin diese Probleme lösen, d.h. das gesamte Prozedere vereinfachen kann. Aber natürlich ist auch Bitcoin nicht die Lösung für alles, denn v.a. fehlt ihm noch das Vertrauen der Menschen als stabile Währung, die unabhängig von einer Regierung funktioniert. Dazu erläutern sie dann die Blockkette, die Technologie hinter allen Kryptowährungen. Diese „block chain“ ist im Grunde eine revolutionäre „Sozialtechnologie“, eine Art digitales, öffentliches Grundbuch, die viele der heutigen „Vertrauenspersonen“ - Banken, Versicherungen, Anwälte, Notare - überflüssig machen könnte. Und nicht nur diese, auch Teile des Regierungsapparates könnten schlicht verzichtbar werden. Sie erläutern, wie diese Blockkette durch das „Schürfen“ („Mining“) öffentlich digital verwaltet wird und gehen dann in den folgenden Kapiteln auf zwei sehr unterschiedliche Aspekte ein. Zum einen beschäftigen sie sich mit den Innovatoren, die das wirtschaftliche Potenzial erkannt haben und mit dieser Technologie reich werden wollen. Zum anderen sehen sie die 2,5 Milliarden Menschen, die kein Bankkonto haben und für Geldtransfers meist 20%, aber gerne auch mal 30% des Überweisungsbetrages abführen müssen. Die Armen in Afrika und Asien, die für Banken wegen ihres geringen Einkommens uninteressant sind, müssen andere Wege finden, um ihr Geld an ihre Familie zu senden und es gibt hier schon seit einigen Jahren spannende Ideen wie M-Pesa, die in einigen Ländern Afrikas Millionen Nutzer haben.
Anyone who has ever sent money internationally knows that today it currently takes anywhere from 3-5 business days for a transaction to clear. It is faster to withdraw money, get on a plane, and fly it to your destination than it is to send it electronically! Not to mention you will be paying exorbitant transaction fees — usually somewhere around 6% but it can vary depending on the financial institution.
Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Forks: Bitcoin Cash is a spin-off of bitcoin, meant to have faster transactions, voted on and implemented by the Bitcoin community. Bitcoin Cash was probably the most successful Bitcoin fork in history, but there are always new forks popping up. Maybe Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Diamond, Bitcoin SV, or another will catch on.. although history says this is a rare occurrence. Keep your eye on the forks, but don’t expect them to be guaranteed the staying power of Bitcoin. Bitcoin forks are interesting altcoins, but it’s unlikely either will ever truly challenge Bitcoin for the top spot. The concept here is that Bitcoin is so relevant that it is important to keep an eye on its forks, especially the one that has really weathered the storm so far, Bitcoin Cash.

Der Punkt ist aber, dass es mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit nicht so weitergehen wird wie bisher. Als Journalisten, die für die Presse-Flaggschiffe des westliche Finanzsystems arbeiten, berufen sie sich gerne auf „Experten“, die eine weitere Krise für unvermeidlich halten. Das weiß aber im Grunde jeder, der seine Augen offen hält. Ein Crash könnte der Durchbruch für den Bitcoin, zumindest aber für die Technologie dahinter werden. Satoshi Nakamoto schickte sein mittlerweile berühmtes White Paper zum Bitcoin am 31.10.2008 in die Welt, im April 2011 kam seine letzte Email und seitdem schweigt er und niemand weiß, wer er ist. Es gibt klare Hinweise darauf, dass sein Bitcoin-Entwurf eine direkte Reaktion auf die Finanzkrise 2008 war. Einmal ist ihm ein Geniestreich gelungen, vielleicht gelingt ihm ein zweiter, wenn er in der nächsten Krise seine eigene Million Bitcoins (von den insgesamt 14,16 Mio. Bitcoins - Stand Mai 2015) klug einsetzt.

Below, we’ll examine some of the most important digital currencies other than bitcoin. First, though, a caveat: it is impossible for a list like this to be entirely comprehensive. One reason for this is the fact that there are more than 1,600 cryptocurrencies in existence as of this writing, and many of those tokens and coins enjoy immense popularity among a dedicated (if small, in some cases) community of backers and investors. Beyond that, the field of cryptocurrencies is always expanding, and the next great digital token may be released tomorrow, for all anyone in the crypto community knows. While bitcoin is widely seen as a pioneer in the world of cryptocurrencies, analysts adopt many approaches for evaluating tokens other than BTC. It’s common, for instance, for analysts to attribute a great deal of importance to the ranking of coins relative to one another in terms of market cap. We’ve factored this into our consideration, but there are other reasons why a digital token may be included in the list as well.


Tezos has a few technological differences when compared to Ethereum such as the use of dPoS, the unique ability to upgrade without the need of a fork, and formal verification which allows for code to be mathematically proven to be correct. This is particularly useful in the case of sensitive calculations needed in fields such as aircraft design and nuclear development.
The market of cryptocurrencies is fast and wild. Nearly every day new cryptocurrencies emerge, old die, early adopters get wealthy and investors lose money. Every cryptocurrency comes with a promise, mostly a big story to turn the world around. Few survive the first months, and most are pumped and dumped by speculators and live on as zombie coins until the last bagholder loses hope ever to see a return on his investment.
One big difference to Forex are the big spreads. A spread is the difference between ask and bid prices. The ask price is the highest price that someone wants for a given cryptocurrency, this is essentially the buying price. The bid price is the lowest price someone is willing to give you for a given cryptocurrency, this is basically the selling price.
Ethereum (ETH) is more than just a currency – it’s like one giant computer housing many computers around the globe. Ethereum can respond to sophisticated requests. Its ability to store revolutionary computer programs, known as smart contracts, gives Ethereum an edge over Bitcoin and has attracted attention from banks around the world. This, among other factors, has led to a jump of almost 10,000% in 2017!

Thank you for this guide. Hopefully there are no stupid questions here – but a quick clarification would be helpful. This and some of your other guides make reference to “requesting a transaction” at the very beginning of the process. What does that mean? Is is simply the request to purchase bitcoin in exchange for USD or whatever medium of exchange? Thank you in advance!
Verge is a secure and decentralized P2P electronic payment system which is designed for sending transactions privately. Verge has a public ledger similar to Bitcoin, but unlike Bitcoin you won’t be able to see the public addresses of the transactions that are conducted. This privacy is achieved using the Tor (The Onion Router) and I2P (Invisible Internet Project) technologies to hide the IP addresses of users.
You don’t have to buy a whole coin. You can buy fractions of coins. Whole Bitcoins can be expensive these days, so consider buying fractions of a coin to start if you don’t have a big bankroll. It has historically been a mistake to buy only other cryptos because BTC costs more. You need to think of which one will increase in and retain value, buying all three in equal $ amounts (and ignoring how many of each coin that amounts too) is one way to avoid making the wrong choice based on price tag per coin.

The creators of digital currencies are often independent of the digital currency exchange that facilitate trading in the currency.[3] In one type of system, digital currency providers (DCP) are businesses that keep and administer accounts for their customers, but generally do not issue digital currency to those customers directly.[1][5] Customers buy or sell digital currency from digital currency exchanges, who transfer the digital currency into or out of the customer's DCP account.[5] Some exchanges are subsidiaries of DCP, but many are legally independent businesses.[1] The denomination of funds kept in DCP accounts may be of a real or fictitious currency.[5]
Litecoin (LTC) is similar to Bitcoin in many of its characteristics and is also one of the more veteran cryptocurrencies out there. However, there are two main differences between Litecoin and Bitcoin: Speed and amount. While it takes 10 minutes to create a Bitcoin block, Litecoin demands roughly 2.5 minutes to create a block – meaning 4 times the speed. Moreover, Litecoin attracts many users, as it can produce 4 times the quantity of Bitcoin! However, as Litecoin uses highly complex cryptography, often mining it is more complicated than other cryptocurrencies.
Bitsane offers a minimalistic, user-friendly interface for maximum usability. Our platform provides super-fast execution of trade transactions for major currency pairs, such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Iconomi, Ripple to traditional currencies USD and EUR. The number of trading instruments is constantly expanding. In addition to the aforementioned crypto currencies, deposits and withdrawals are available via SWIFT (in dollars) and SEPA (in Euros), OKPay and AdvCash payment systems.
Needless to say, Bitcoin’s place as an alternative digital asset among cryptocurrencies has become entrenched, despite likely headwinds it will continue to face as it evolves further. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced in early August 2017 that certain Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) – which use cryptocurrencies for financing – would be regulated as securities.

When issuing a transaction in IOTA, you validate 2 previous transactions. This means you no longer outsource validation to miners which requires wasteful amounts of computing power and usually a large stake of coins. These required resources are, in effect, centralizing the currencies which many believe were created to be decentralized in the first place.

A lot of people have made fortunes by mining Bitcoins. Back in the days, you could make substantial profits from mining using just your computer, or even a powerful enough laptop. These days, Bitcoin mining can only become profitable if you’re willing to invest in an industrial-grade mining hardware. This, of course, incurs huge electricity bills on top of the price of all the necessary equipment.


Zum ersten Mal wurde das Thema Bitcoin im Jahre 1998 der Öffentlichkeit preisgegeben. Doch erst seit dem Jahr 2009 ist das Produkt offiziell handelbar. Seither konnte sich der Ursprungswert dieser digitalen Münze vervielfachen. Zahlreiche Nachahmer folgten und konnten interessanterweise eigene Erfolgsgeschichten aufweisen. So ist auch Litecoin innerhalb kürzester Zeit auf den Markt getreten.
Consider signing up for another exchange and trading cryptocurrency for cryptocurrency (and then transferring that back into Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin, and then back into Coinbase, and then back into USD). Don’t forget to record your transactions for the tax man and to brush up on the tax implications (I can’t stress that enough).
Siacoin was created by Luke Champine and David Vorick of Nebulous Inc. The Saicoin team chose not to hold an ICO. Instead, Siacoin came to life when its genesis block was mined. Even without an ICO, the Sia team managed to raise over $1.25 million in funding through investors such as Fenbushi Capital, Raptor Group, Procyon Ventures, along with angel investors like Xiaolai Li.
So kann man Limits festlegen oder schlichtweg einen geringeren Kapitaleinsatz wählen. Dies ist gerade für Anfänger eine stark zu empfehlende Vorgehensweise. Man hört relativ oft, dass der Krypto Handel eine Unterart des normalen Währungshandels ist. Die Gemeinsamkeiten sind tatsächlich eklatant. Sie fangen schon damit an, dass der User oftmals einen Devisenbroker benötigt, um überhaupt mit digitalen Währungen handeln zu können.
While it’s very easy to buy Bitcoins - there are numerous exchanges in existence that trade in BTC - other cryptocurrencies aren’t as easy to acquire. Although, this situation is slowly improving with major exchanges like Kraken, BitFinex, BitStamp and many others starting to sell Litecoin, Ethereum, Monero, Ripple and so on. There are also a few other different ways of being coin, for instance, you can trade face-to-face with a seller or use a Bitcoin ATM.
What is cryptocurrency is a common question amongst new people who first hear about bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are defined as digital assets used for medium of exchange with strong cryptography securing transactions, controlling possible creation of additional tokens or coins and verifying asset transfers. What is cryptocurrency backed by is another common question from people who are looking to get into crypto, and for that the answer is not so simple. Some of the cryptocurrencies are not backed by anything, and some of them are backed by physical assets.
Monero (XMR) was created in April 2014 and 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. The word ‘Monero’ comes from the language Esperanto where it literally means ‘coin’.
LinkCoin is an Over-The-Counter (OTC) cryptocurrency exchange that was developed by Yesbit Ltd in collaboration with Bibox. Based in Toronto Canada, the exchange processes transactions autonomously via smart contracts. Plus, with a fully functional website, and Android + iOs apps, the platform has the necessary technological infrastructure to provide users with a service that meets all of their investment needs. Linkcoin has 7 cryptocurrencies available for purchase (BTC, ETH, BCH, ETC, LTC, LKN, BIX) plus, with some of the indsutrie’s lowest transaction fees (zero buyer fees + 0.6% seller fees), they make buying and selling cryptocurrencies as affordable as possible. Accessibility is something Linkcoin also values. Which is why they accept interac e-Transfer, Bank Wire, AliPay and WeChat Pay. Users can also pay in either CAD, USD, CNY, JPY, or HKD.
Namecoin: In 2015 Namecoin looked promising, here in 2017 there is a little less hype. Still, Namecoin is notable. Namecoin is almost the same as Bitcoin. It was the first “fork” of the Bitcoin software. It’s based on Bitcoin and has the same unit cap, but has a few tweaks in its data storage. Namecoin was originally just going to be an upgrade to Bitcoin, but people were nervous that it would pose issues. So Namecoin is similar to Bitcoin, but like all the currencies that are not-Bitcoin, it is worth a fraction of Bitcoin. Its solid background and reasonable price point make it a relatively good coin to invest in. Of all the coins noted so far, Namecoin has performed the most poorly so far. It is still priced very low in USD.
Cryptocurrencies have been compared to Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes[77] and economic bubbles,[78] such as housing market bubbles.[79] Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital Management stated in 2017 that digital currencies were "nothing but an unfounded fad (or perhaps even a pyramid scheme), based on a willingness to ascribe value to something that has little or none beyond what people will pay for it", and compared them to the tulip mania (1637), South Sea Bubble (1720), and dot-com bubble (1999).[80]
