List RulesVote up the best or your favorite cryptocurrencies.

It's going to the moon! The greatest cryptocurrencies have changed the financial markets and raised the money game to new heights that were unheard of only years ago. As digital cryptocurrency strives to fix the problems of traditional finance by putting power and responsibility in the hands of currency holders, new cryptocurrencies are developed every day. Currently, there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies on the market, all serving different purposes and making new waves in technology. So, what is the best cryptocurrency? 

The best cryptocurrencies typically provide a store of value and have a limited supply to increase demand, such as Bitcoin (BTC) or yEarn Finance (YFI). Or they are the currency of a decentralized network or "stack" where apps can be built, like Ethereum (ETH) or Cardano (ADA). Or maybe they are just fun alt-coins to hold and watch rocket to the moon(!), as are Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB).

Vote up your favorite cryptocurrencies and help decide which cryptocurrency is going to the moon and beyond! Then, head on over and find out which celebs love cryptocurrency.
