Cryptocurrencies, also known as cryptos, are a class of digital assets that open up unprecedented technological possibilities with the help of novel blockchain technology as well as cryptographic methods.
Cryptos as an asset class officially saw the light of day in 2013 with the invention of Bitcoin by Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then, the global crypto market has been growing at tremendous rates every year. In 2021, the market capitalization of all traded cryptocurrencies has exceeded USD 2 trillion.
The two most important cryptos by market capitalization here are Bitcoin and Ethereum, which together account for more than 60% of the total market capitalization.
