It’s getting more difficult by the day to keep up with the changes in the ever-evolving cryptocurrency market. So, the smart people over at InvestInBlockchain.com have put together a Periodic Table of Cryptocurrencies that consists of 118 elements and organized into nine categories.
The categories are listed below the table (using their descriptions), along with brief explanations of the factors that contribute to a coin or token being included in a given category.
Currencies – Coins used primarily for payments and to store value.
Protocols, Exchanges, and Interoperability – Projects building decentralized infrastructure to exchange cryptocurrencies and enable communication between different blockchains.
Computing, Data Management & Cloud Services – Projects related to computing, data storage and security, and cloud services including file storage and cloud computing.
Others – Projects that didn’t fit into any of the other categories. These include prediction markets, oracles, betting platforms, and AI-related projects.
Platforms – Smart contract and decentralized application (dapp) platforms.
Gaming, Media, and Social Networking Platforms – Projects related to the gaming industry, online content publishing and distribution, and social media.
Privacy Coins – Currencies with features to make transactions anonymous and/or untraceable.
FinTech – Financial services and technology.
Business/Enterprise – Platforms meant to help businesses improve efficiency, transparency, and security, among other things.
