Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Acronyms

Cryptocurrency Abbreviations & Acronyms - CryptoAnswers

Blockchain and cryptocurrency terminologies are complex and can be confusing. Let alone when these crypto terms turn into an abbreviation (a truncated word), acronym (abbreviations which are pronounced as words), initialism (abbreviations that are pronounced one letter at a time), slang or general blockchain jargon! There is no denying this.

While we offer a dedicated Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Glossary, which explains many terms in detail, the list below will expand on blockchain and cryptocurrency acronyms and abbreviations.

Please note, CryptoAnswers has not included the ticker code for cryptocurrencies in this list, as they are all available on the Cryptocurrency prices and Market capitalization page.
