Coins, Tokens, Cryptocurrency Whitepapers

Cryptocurrencies are open-source software that anyone can write. However, to scale and gain acceptance a currency needs three groups to invest resources: developers (who build a currency’s code), miners/validators (who unlock/verify new coins in the blockchain), and coin holders. Engaging all three groups is the hard part and should separate the serious projects from the also-rans. -Wellington Management
