The cryptocurrency had been on an incredible run in 2018, rising over 51% since the start of the year.

The cryptocurrency market gained more prominence in mainstream investing circles throughout 2017. It's a popular topic on Main Street, as you've likely experienced around the proverbial water cooler, and Wall Street recently launched a futures market with ETFs being considered.

Once a bill is drafted, legislation for an outright ban of virtual coin trading will require a majority vote of the total 297 members of the National Assembly, a process that could take months or even years. It should not be misconstrued as a recommendation to invest or trade. In 2011, the crypto once traded at less than a buck.

As you probably know, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are digital coins that exist on a secure and decentralized computer network known as a blockchain. New cryptocurrencies have been springing up that offer similar technology to Ethereum's - but more scalable. This is the core disruption and why cryptocurrencies have risen so dramatically in the past couple years. It reduces friction, and it returns power, authority, and autonomy to the individual.

Those issue makes it hard to use bitcoin as a replacement for a traditional currency. Many are the result of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), which are crowdfunding-like events that enable companies to raise capital in new ways.

With the returns dropping both in terms of Ethereum and U.S. dollars - and therefore rand - we switched to NiceHash to bring in Bitcoin.

However, as Ethereum is sitting above the $1,200 mark (at the time of writing), our USA dollar returns - and by extension, our rand returns - are much higher than when we switched to NiceHash.

Your coins and United States dollars currency can be freely transferred between CoinBase and GDAX. Get the tools you need right to your inbox. This means that you can not directly transfer or transact in Dollars. When the system was created in 2013, the development team removed numerous key features you find in most other cryptocurrencies.

The available options now are not just the purchase of the currency Ripple but, the underlying phenomenon of future trading that's based on estimating the price of ripple against the ripple.

While the idea of Bitcoin creation was to design a cryptocurrency for peer to peer electronic payment system, Ethereum initially has another objective. One of the many exchanges that support both is Bittrex.

Ripple has been gaining popularity and has grown in more than 1000% in 2017 alone which saw it challenge Ethereum for the second position in market cap. Bittrex doesn't now support this coin. Today, Ethereum managed to reclaim its title as the second largest digital currency after Ripple garnered a massive following after major cryptocurrencies dipped.

Their values are volatile, with the ability to plummet as quickly as they shoot up.

Other cryptocurrency exchanges include Poloniex, Bitfinex, Kraken, KuCoin, Quoine, Gemini,,, HitBTC, and bithumb. Transactions were also suspended temporarily at some of them including the world's busiest exchange, Binance, which put the brakes on Ethereum transactions for a while.
