Are cryptocurrencies the wave of the future?


Distributed Ledger image

There are over 1,000 cryptocurrencies with a market cap in the hundreds of billions.

Cryptocurrencies and the distributed ledger technology behind them have the potential to completely change the way financial products are created, distributed, and traded. They also hold the potential to change how purchases are made and assets are tracked.  Currently, they can both reduce fraud and increase fraud.
