When a new crypto is launched, its founders announce how many coins will be mined. Once the
quota is reached, no further coins can be produced. The first digital coin introduced was
Bitcoin, which remains today the benchmark for all other digital coins. Among other currencies
that have made their way into the cryptocurrency hall-of-fame we have: Ethereum, Ripple,
Litecoin, EOS, and a number of derived currencies, including Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold.
