by Andrew McGuinness     Jul 16, 2019

Since bitcoin first came into the world in 2009, it has made quite the impact on the financial market and within the field of technology. It has flipped fiat currency, the only currency we had experienced until 2009, on its head. Cryptocurrency is breaking all of the rules we assumed were unbreakable, and it is able to do so thanks to the latest technology of decentralized systems.

Decentralized systems are systems that do not require middlemen such as financial institutions in order to operate. The blockchain platform has helped cryptocurrency reach its success as well, becoming one of the greatest, most innovative gifts ever bestowed upon the world of technology. So, as you can see, the establishment of cryptocurrency brought with it more than first meets the eye. There are several companies following in the footsteps of cryptocurrencies and its technologies by using their products in innovative ways. Here are seven companies who are taking digital currencies to the next level.
