The Ultimate Guide to Zcash

Zcash (ZEC) is a cryptocurrency designed with one goal in mind: increasing personal privacy. Unlike Ethereum and NEO, the team behind Zcash simply wants to create, a highly-secure, easy to use, and very private means of storing and transmitting funds. That is why they have plans to create what they call a worldwide economic platform, but no planned solutions for business in the form of initial cryptocurrency offerings (ICOs), bitcoin-based documents, or markets. Despite that Zcash has some similarities to Ethereum or Ether. Like Ethereum and XEM or NEM, Zcash is promoted and maintained by a nonprofit organization called...

The Ultimate Guide to DASH: All in one Digital Cash Platform

A great way to describe DASH would be as the best cryptocurrency that you have never heard of (well, unless you actually follow the top performing crypto currencies). DASH stands for ‘Digital Cash.’ Technically all crytocurrencies aim to be a form of digital cash, but DASH has tried to brand the term with their moniker. Most likely, if you are new to cryptocurrency or only know cryptos by hearing about Bitcoin or Ethereum on the news, you won’t know DASH.

The Ultimate Guide to NEM: The Japanese Crypto

The best way to think of NEM is that it’s THE Japanese version of Ethereum. Like Ethereum, NEO, and Waves, NEM is actually a blockchain-based platform for financial services that includes a cryptocurrency. The centerpiece of NEM is not the cryptocurrency, but a Smart-Asset blockchain that sounds a great deal like Ethereum’s Smart Contract. Both are efforts to create transparent, secure, encrypted, and tamper-resistant digital investments on the blockchain. Both Smart Contracts and Smart Assets are designed to create permanent records of financial transactions that cannot be erased. Beyond that NEM is designed to be a blockchain-based financial services...

The Ultimate Guide to Ripple (XRP)

Ripple (XRP) is a cryptocurrency with a lot of potential that most people ignore because it generates little news. The idea behind Ripple is the same as that behind several of its competitors; including Ethereum, NEO, and Waves – to create a faster, cheaper, more transparent, more secure, and more reliable system for transmission of funds. To that the end the team behind Ripple has developed several blockchain-based solutions; including the XRP cryptocurrency, the xCurrent global payment processing app for banks, the xRapid solution for payment processors, and the xVia payment transmission solution for businesses. All of these solutions operate on the RippleNet ecosystem, which the Ripple team claims is the most advanced scalable blockchain technology available today. Scalable means that it can be built and expanded fast. Major Banks are Using Ripple Some major banks and large corporations are experimenting with Ripple and participating in the RippleNet project. The major participants in that project include; American Express, The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), Santander, UBS, BBVA, Westpac, Standard Chartered, and Mizhuo. Unfortunately, it is not clear what the banks and companies are doing beyond playing around with the Ripple technology. Although the technology is quite impressive Ripple Net can supposedly provide real-time global payments across 27 countries. The hope of that is to tap into the extremely lucrative international remittance market which was worth $582 billion in 2015...
