A Growing Cryptocurrency Resource

[Post updated November 15th, 2017] … Electroneum added

Still working on my top 50 cryptocurrency resource! From there I plan on creating a top 10 list to track. Of course, let me know along the way if there’s a special coin you want to me profile!

I’m working through a series of posts aggregating information about the top cryptocurrencies in an effort to better understand what makes each of them special, and which, if any, seem poised to continued and long-term growth.

Is Bitcoin the winner? Is Ethereum the clear choice? Why are people talking about IOTA? I aim to find out…

I’m not a cryptographer, a data scientist, or even a crypto trader. I’m an investor looking for ways to allocate capital in advance of coming industrial disruptions. And, to be sure, cryptocurrencies represent a broad spectrum of potential disruptions.

This list will be updated as I release new posts on additional cryptocurrencies, and the cryptos will be ordered by market cap, from largest to smallest.

Currently, the largest cryptocurrencies by market cap are:
