    Ripple (XRP) is the 3rd largest crypto-currency in terms of market cap after Bitcoin and Ethereum.
    Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC) both originated via hard forks of the leading cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin and Ethereum. BCH and ETC inherited functionality and strong community support from their predecessors, which helped them remain viable and retain their value for investors.
    Monero (XMR) is a cryptocurrency with a special focus on privacy protection.  Like most coins, it has seen an explosion of growth - over 3,000% in 2017. Monero is currently worth around 300 USD per coin and occupies #13 in the Coinmarketcap list.
    NEO, EOS, IOTA, OMNI  - a group of lesser-known emerging altcoins that already rank high and have the potential to become the next big thing in the crypto-currency world.
