Lets talk about some of the top crypto coins and where they came from and what they are all about.

As of January 2022, there are over 6,000 crytpcurrencies.

The first coin was Bitcoin in 2009 and it was the only coin for several years.

There was only a handful of coins up until around 2020 when suddenly in 2021 everybody seemed to be fascinated in Crypto and began to make coins.

It should be noted that there are at least 10 sites on Youtube which tell people how to create phony coins and NFT projects for about $100 and in about 20 minutes. This is not being told to encourage bad behaviour but just to emphasize that there may be more thought to consider when investing in new coins that don’t have enough history.

There are other coins that have had controversy in the past like Monero but every coin should be checked out before you put money in it.

There is a growing movement towards coins in an area called privacy coins such as Monero, Pirate Chain, Xeq and Dero so you may wish to look into them. They may have less regulation than others but could be perfectly legitimate investment or tools for people around the world.
