Hailed as the financial revolution of a generation, cryptocurrencies have been disrupting the traditional view of the banking sector since Bitcoin’s founder, the pseudo-mythical Satoshi Nakamoto, released his inaugural crypto white paper in 2008.
Regularly hitting global headlines since, cryptocurrencies have opened the possibilities for anonymous, cross-border, almost instant payment transactions. While applicable everyday use-cases and manageable adoption are still in their infancy, interest in crypto is frenzied. This has created a melting pot of volatility and a surge in popularity as an investment instrument as a result.

The product of a ‘hard fork’ or split in the Bitcoin ledger and currency, it was created with the aim of increasing the block size, and therefore transaction speed. This would allow the currency to be adapted for transactional use, rather than simply as a store of value.
Ether is the transactional token for the Ethereum network. Initially proposed by Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum platform was developed for the purposes of supporting decentralized applications. Ethereum has been the first network to implement Nick Szabo’s idea of “smart contract”, a self-executing digital contract with the terms of agreement coded within.
Ripple acts as both a payment network and cryptocurrency. Boasting transaction settlement of around 4 seconds and competitive transaction fees, it has been adopted by many financial institutions worldwide for its advantages in cross-border payments.
An early alternative, or altcoin, to BTC, Litecoin from a technical perspective is almost identical to its crypto older brother. In 2017, it successfully completed a transfer in under one second affording it one of the fastest transaction confirmations in the crypto space.
Born as Xcoin and renamed Dash in 2015, the crypto is another altcoin spin-off from BTC. Initially, it had ties with the darknet but has since shaken this image with a focus on becoming as liquid as traditional fiat currencies and claims to be four times faster than Bitcoin.
