A decade since it rose to prominence and cryptocurrencies, a set of payment services whose rise to the top started with the creation of the decentralized P2P payment system Bitcoin, still remains a major force in the economic landscape. Now, more and more ventures are considering cryptos as a form of payment, and a significant number of investors are looking to trade these currencies for profit. The surge in interest in this digital form of payment has also earned the attention of those who want to make a buck from educating others about its nitty-gritty.
