Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin was the first decentralized cryptocurrency to be created.  It was created in 2009, by an unknown person or group of people, using the name Satoshi Nakamoto.  Bitcoin transfers are “peer-to-peer, meaning users can make transactions directly with each other, not needing a centralized authority.  These transactions are verified by network nodes and then recorded on a public ledger.  This underlying technology of Bitcoin, is called blockchain.  Miners keep the network secure, by repeatedly verifying that the blockchain is consistent.

The price of Bitcoin depends on what buyers are willing to pay for it, as Bitcoin has no intrinsic value.  The first known Bitcoin purchase was when someone traded 10,000 Bitcoin for two pizzas.  Since this time, the price of 1 Bitcoin has reached as high as over $2,900.

Ethereum (ETH)

While many cryptocurrencies came before Ethereum, Ethereum contains some of the most groundbreaking features.  The currency of the Ethereum network is called Ether.  It currently has the second largest market cap of any cryptocurrency, behind Bitcoin.

Ethereum is an open source blockchain based computing platform, which features smart contract functionality as well as a decentralized virtual machine.  The project was funded by a crowd sale in 2014, giving contributors “premined” Ether in return for their contribution.  11.9 million coins were premined and distributed in total.

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin was created to be an improvement of the ideas behind Bitcoin, although it’s a completely separate currency.  Like Bitcoin, Litecoin is a peer-to-peer decentralized cryptocurrency.  The key differences of Litecoin are lower block times (aiming to bring faster transactions), use of scrypt in its proof of work algorithm, and four times as many total coins to be created.
