Cryptocurrency has grown massively in popularity in recent years, with many different options to potentially invest in. The digital currencies can hold immense value, but also carry substantial risk due to their volatility.

Nasdaq recently compiled a top ten list of the most popular cryptocurrencies, with Bitcoin unsurprisingly topping the list.

Bitcoin is the original digital currency, having been created in 2009. It has the largest market cap of all cryptocurrencies at over £576 billion.

Ethereum comes in second, created by a Russian-Canadian programmer in 2014. It has a current price of £2,097.80

In third place on the list is Stellar, which was also created in 2014. It has a much lower price than the top two at just 20 pence.
