Crunch Network: “100 Cryptocurrencies Described In Four Words or Less”

The information is from November of 2017, so by the time you read this, the top 100 cryptocurrencies have changed.  At any rate, I found this to be a handy cheat sheet of what the more popular and known cryptos of the day do/are about.

As always, do your research, because every choice you make rests upon your shoulders, and ignorance will always be punished.

Enjoy.
