The initial years of cryptocurrencies were simpler times, with only a handful in existence. However, that soon changed with Ethereum, which allowed anyone to create their tokens and piggyback on the mainnet. 2017 saw an explosion of cryptocurrencies, with new ones popping up and now we have the DeFi concept, driving the creation of more. Today, there are thousands of these coins and tokens in existence. The most comprehensive list of coins and tokens has over 9500 of these.
Within this fast-paced world of ever new cryptocurrencies, projects and startups, it can be difficult to understand which one to invest in. Cryptocurrencies are already infamous for being volatile in nature and the different technological and financial aspects employed by crypto firms and projects can easily be a cause of confusion. Laymen always have had troubles deciding which coin or token to invest in, especially when there are nearly 2000 startups that failed in the last decade.
