Simply put, Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies. Currencies you can’t see but can exchange for the ones you can see and actually spend – physical and electronic cash.
Over the last couple of years, the popularity and acceptance of cryptocurrencies have snowballed, and it still very much looks like it holds a promising future as prices have been hitting the sky particularly over the last two years. Cyptocurrencies have numerous uses but is majorly bought and sold as a business and this business of cryptocurrency sales have made a lot of people richer.
But there’s usually a misconception about cryptocurrency. Whenever the term is mentioned, most people often attribute it to mean “Bitcoin” only. Most people even see Bitcoin as the most expensive and valuable cryptocurrency out there. But is that totally true? Well, it’s not.
While Bitcoin is valued high, with a worth as high as $4,400 for a single unit, it isn’t the only cryptocurrency (in fact, there are about a thousand of them), neither is it the most valuable. These three (3) cryptocurrencies below have values higher than the popular Bitcoin. Let’s have a look at them and their respective values.
