The idea of anonymous cryptographic electronic money had long since been postulated, but it wasn’t until 2009 that decentralized cryptocurrency Bitcoin was first created. Namecoin, Litecoin, and Peercoin followed in the preceding years, and cryptocurrency began gaining momentum.

By the end of 2013, there were over 50 different cryptocurrencies. And by the end of 2014, this figure had increased by approximately 10x to over 500.

Today, there are over 10,000 cryptocurrencies in circulation.

But how did the financial landscape reach this point? And where is it heading?
