At present, the types of digital currency are mainly divided into intelligent contracts and basic chains, protocols and de-centralized transactions, application chains, and air currency without technology and application. The mainstream value judgment standard is that the bottom chain has the highest value, the largest growth in the future, followed by the agreement and application chain, and the air currency has no value.
A Brief Collection of the Top 20 Digital Currencies in Global Market Value
1.The concept of Bitcoin Bitcoin was originally proposed by Zhongbencong in 2009. Point-to-point is a P2P-based digital currency based on SHA-256 algorithm.
