BTMs Aren’t Just for Bitcoins! (Part 1)

Cryptocurrency

While “cryptocurrency” is often used as an all-encompassing term, technically cryptocurrencies are only mined digital currencies, almost always recorded and verified on the blockchain. This category includes the big players you’ve probably heard of — Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC) — as well as Ripple (XRP), Stellar (XLM) and Monero (XMR).

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is the world’s first and most popular decentralized digital currency, and began being mined in early 2009. Over the past decade it has proven to be the most successful attempt to create virtual money using cryptography — the science of protecting information through codes.
