It started out as a very small community. A community of dreamers who believed that an alternative currency and the technology behind it, could change, not only the way we do business but perhaps even the financial industry as a whole.
These days cryptocurrency headlines are often dominated by the industry leader, Bitcoin.

One such cryptocurrency is known as the ether token (ETH), which is the value token on the Ethereum blockchain.

Moreover, 48% of American women play video games, according to 2015 Pew Research poll. However, video games aren’t only popular in the US.
