What is an altcoin?

A digital money that competes with Bitcoin, in other words, an alternative to Bitcoin.

The term altcoin is a combination of the words “alternative” and “coin.” It truly refers to a collection of cryptocurrencies, and in the end, all cryptocurrencies that aren’t Bitcoin.

Which cryptocurrencies are considered altcoins?

Any cryptocurrency that has been released since Bitcoin is referred to as a “altcoin” (BTC). Developers forked the open-source code to create multiple currencies in the early days of Bitcoin.

Along with them came a slew of Bitcoin–altcoin trading pairings, which sparked a boom in market activity as traders took advantage of the crypto assets’ volatility for high-risk gains.

The emergence of cryptocurrencies and their associated blockchain networks heralds a period of experimentation and development in the cryptocurrency space.

With the growth of crypto and their corresponding blockchain networks, the crypto sector has entered a period of experimentation and maturity, allowing for a greater range of use cases.

How many altcoins are there?

In short, there are nearly over 6,000 as of 2021 – a severe increase from just a handful of digital coins in 2013.
