Cryptocurrencies are a peer-to-peer digital currency and blockchain based network that use cryptography to provide trustless digital payments. 

Each of these cryptocurrencies is owned and controlled by a small group of individuals, and can be traded and traded for a variety of other cryptocurrencies and asset classes.
