With over 1400 coins to pick from, how can you tell if one is worth investing in? Lets start by looking at the top ten coins.
To help describe these coins, so that they can be compared as equally as possible, I have used symbols to represent some of the unchangeable aspects of a crypto.
Now that you know how the shorthand model works, lets look at each crypto individually.
I have given a short description of the reason the crypto was created in the first place, and what problem it is attempting to solve. I also describe how the crypto is currently being used, which is not always in its initial intended way.
Lastly, I look into its intrinsic value to investors. In order for a crypto to have long term value, it requires a financial eco-system. The eco-system requires interaction between the developers and the community who will ultimately use the crypto. This means there needs to be a way for the developers to earn income (so they can continue to develop), a way for the community to earn crypto (so the community has an incentive to be part of the project), a reason to spend the crypto, and an easy way for the crypto to be spent. If the crypto can't provide this eco-system then the crypto may struggle to survive long term.
