By Brandon Hockett-Smith and Adam Taylor | January 21, 2018 11:27:23The crypto community is still recovering from the loss of Bitcoin’s price.
The digital currency lost more than $1.4 billion of its value in the space of a day, while its market cap fell by $2.3 billion.
The cryptocurrency boom continues, and there are still a number of new players in the race to disrupt the bitcoin ecosystem.
Here’s what you need to know about what is coming next.
How crypto is evolvingCrypto has been evolving over the last two decades.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that is created by a community of computers working together to solve cryptographic puzzles.
It is created and operated by a small group of people who all agree to keep the secret.
Its value is based on its cryptographic properties, such as the number of transactions it can support.
The more transactions a user can perform, the more valuable the cryptocurrency is.
There are currently more than a billion bitcoins in circulation.
These bitcoins are not backed by a central entity, but are stored on computers and can be traded on exchanges such as Bitstamp.
Bitcoin is the most widely traded cryptocurrency in the world.
It has gained traction in the past few years as it has gained popularity among technology and finance professionals.
For example, in 2016, the cryptocurrency was worth $7 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.
This year, the currency has jumped to $9.5 billion.
Cryptocurrencies are often used to transfer value, such for remittances, as well as to secure online transactions.
There have been a number startups that have created crypto-based services to facilitate this activity.
There is also a growing demand for online payments, which have been growing as the price of bitcoin has soared.
There were more than 6,000 bitcoin ATMs worldwide in 2017, according the CoinDesk bitcoin ATM database.
The next wave in crypto will come with a greater focus on security, according a report by Crypto Currency Intelligence (CCI), a firm that tracks and monitors the bitcoin and altcoin market.
In 2018, the digital currency industry will be experiencing more volatility and more speculative activity than the past, the report said.
In 2017, digital currency was trading at a high of $2,100 per bitcoin, but the average price dropped to $1,400 in 2018.
There will be less volatility in the near future, according CCI’s report.
Crypto is also growing in importance, with Bitcoin Cash, the most valuable cryptocurrency, becoming the first digital currency to break through the $1 trillion barrier.
According to the report, this is not a new phenomenon, as Bitcoin Cash has already done so many times before.
Bitcoin Cash is the only digital currency with a market cap above $1 billion.
The report said that in 2018, cryptocurrencies are expected to reach $2 trillion.
The biggest players will be Ethereum, which has a market capitalization of $5.2 billion, followed by Ripple, which currently has a $1billion market cap, followed closely by Monero, which holds a market value of about $4 billion.
In the near term, the market will likely move in a bullish direction, with a higher-than-average number of digital currency investors, according, the CCI report.
However, the firm said that this is an illusion and that more investors will be looking at cryptocurrencies as a hedge against the future downturn.
According to the CIC report, there are approximately 3.4 million bitcoin ATM operators worldwide.
This represents an increase of 4.4 percent over the previous year, and more than 3.7 million ATMs were active in the first quarter of 2018.
These operators are mainly located in the United States and Asia, with more than 1.2 million locations reported in the region.
There is a high degree of uncertainty surrounding the digital currencies market, especially in the short-term, with several cryptocurrencies trading at higher prices than Bitcoin and Ethereum, as investors continue to look at other altcoins and blockchain technology to protect their investments.
The CIC also noted that there are not many traditional financial institutions in the crypto-space, as they are wary of investing in crypto-trading and risk taking.
In 2018, CoinDesk spoke with Ben Schmitz, chief technology officer at Blockchain Capital, about the future of the crypto economy.
Blockchain Capital, the first crypto investment fund in the U.S., aims to invest in blockchain-based digital currencies, including Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash.
Schmitzz said he believes that the digital economy is “at the cusp of a new golden age,” which is being driven by the digital assets and their underlying technology, as opposed to the traditional financial markets.
He also highlighted the need to provide investment services to the emerging sector, including for blockchain assets, such Ethereum and its upcoming digital asset, Litecoin.
