Which Digital Currency?
Bitcoin is certainly the biggest game in town when it comes to digital currency, but it is certainly not the only one and may not always be the biggest. So which is the best digital currency to buy? Should you buy bitcoin or one of the alternatives – sometimes called ‘altcoins’?
Of course I cannot answer those questions for you, but I can provide you with some relevant information to help make the decision for yourself.
I have to add a big fat disclaimer here: this section is entirely subjective based on the writer’s own opinions: if you want to get a more unbiased perspective you can find a list of all the main options on coinmarketcap.com, which also provides some links to help you to research them yourself.
There are so many of these coins out there, some of which were only ever intended for specific niche uses or communities, that I cannot possible write about them all. But what I can do is to pick out a few of them which I think may be of interest to beginners and general users and share some of
their most interesting features to you. For the purposes of this article I have focused on the use of these coins purely as a digital currency, for sending money to friends and family, buying things over the internet, storing your savings and so on; that means I have largely ignored exotic features like asset exchanges, built-in crowdfunding technologies, data storage, and so on. If you are primarily looking for an investment then you may like to consider some of these type of ‘feature coins’ as well as the ones listed below.
