Altcoin refers to all digital cryptocurrency launched following the success of Bitcoin; hence the name, which means “alternative to Bitcoin”. There are over 1000+ Altcoin currencies that have been created since Bitcoin.
An altcoin is a cryptocurrency, or virtual currency. It is an alternative to bitcoin. Altcoins work much like the original Bitcoin. Using a private key, a payment can be sent from a digital wallet A to digital wallet B.
