The Largest Collection of Cryptocurrency Reviews Online

The wider altcoin - or cryptocurrency - market is arguably a better harbinger for the future of digital currency than bitcoin itself.  True innovation in requires a tolerance for failure that is not acceptable within the bitcoin protocol, and thus more ambitious experimentation occurs in alternative cryptocurrencies or, as the case may be, within sidechains branching off from the bitcoin blockchain.  It is our view that sustained value will be found only in crypto that provides true innovation, and to these coins we limit our reviews, whether they are alternatives to bitcoin or complement it in one way or another.
