How to Create a Cryptocurrency [Step by Step Guide]

How does cryptocurrency work? How to make a cryptocurrency? How to create my own cryptocurrency? All these questions must be popping in your head. Don’t worry we have the answers for them. Keep reading to get enlighted with knowledge of cryptocurrency and how to benefit your business from it.

Before answering the $100 billion question (the total valuation of Bitcoin) of how to create your own cryptocurrency, there are a few things you need to learn about the future of money.

What It Is A Cryptocurrency? Basic Definition

First of all for let’s go back to basics. What is a currency?

It is far more than just a banknote or coins. A currency is a unit of storage and account and a means of exсhаnge. In simple terms, it is a universally accepted way of buying or selling any goods or services.

In older times, when the barter system was in place anything from rice and grains to wool and even feathers would be considered a currency. Then came in banks to regularize this means of payment. That’s when they made coins and printed banknotes.

Now in the digital time and age, the coins and banknotes seem to become outdated. So came in a new form of currency, the cryptocurrency.

Now, What is Cryptocurrency?

It is just like a normal currency but in a digital platform and accepted universally unlike physical currencies that work only in a specific country. A single centralized platform does not bind cryptocurrencies.

What It Is A Cryptocurrency? Advance Description

Cryptocurrencies don’t have banknotes, but they do have coins. There is also one more term, Token in cryptocurrencies. People often get confused between a token and a coin.


So What exactly is the difference between a Token and a Coin in Cryptocurrency?

The three main differences are:

  1. Coins are part of a single blockchain while tokens operate on the existing blockchains.
  2. Tokens are limited to a specific industry or community; coins can be used anywhere.
  3. Coins can buy tokens, but tokens can’t buy coins.

Let’s simplify using a real-life scenario. If you go to Starbucks regularly, then you may earn loyalty points for your frequent purchases. With these points, you can redeem a drink. These loyalty points are token that an establishment (in this case Starbucks) offers.

Now you can buy such loyalty points by giving money which in turn gives you free coffee. This money is the coin (in this case a real-life coin or bank note).

You can buy loyalty points using coins, but you can not get real money using loyalty points. So a crypto coin can be used to buy a business’s token, but you can’t buy a crypto coin using a token.

Starting a New Cryptocurrency: Is It Right for Your Business?

Now you have a fairly good idea what a cryptocurrency is and how it is used. Now comes the question, does your business actually need cryptocurrency? Just answer the questions below, and you will get a clear picture:

  • Will your business be on the internet?
  • Does your revenue come more from digital payments than hard cash?
  • Will an online payment option increase your userbase?
  • Do you plan to stay in business for more than a couple of years?

Okay, the last question was a rhetorical one. If the answer to all these questions is “yes” then your business needs a integrate cryptocurrency.

Benefits of building your Own Cryptocurrency:

  • Eliminate Fraud Risk
  • Transaction Anonymity
  • Lower Operational Costs
  • Immediate Transactions
  • Access To New Customer base
  • Security For Funds

How To Make A Cryptocurrency?

I believe now you are ready to create your own cryptocurrency. Without wasting any time let’s get straight to the step-by-step process to create and launch your own cryptocurrency.

Step 1. Choose a Consensus Mechanism

Consensus mechanisms are the protocols that consider a particular transaction legitimate and add to the block.

Step 2. Pick a Blockchain Platform.

The correct choice of blockchain platform for your business depends on the consensus mechanism you’ve selected. (I’ll mention the top blockchain platforms below for you to choose from)

Step 3. Design The Nodes

You have to decide the workings and functionality of your blockchain and design the nodes accordingly. For instance, will the permissions be private or public? The hosting will be on the cloud or on-premises, or both? What would be the required hardware details for the execution?

Step 4. Establish Blockchain’s Internal Architecture

Be sure about all the aspects before the launch as you won’t be able to change several parameters of the blockchain after it’s launched and running. The decisions could be as simple as what address format your blockchain will follow to providing exchanges between different cryptocurrencies without a 3rd party intermediary.

Step 5. Integrate APIs

Some platforms don’t provide pre-built APIs so make sure yours does. If it doesn’t still no need to worry, there are several 3rd party blockchain API providers like ChromaWay, Gem, Colu, Bitcore, BlockCypher, and Tierion.

Step 6: Design The Interface

Building a world-class cryptocurrency is of no use if your interface is not good. You need to make sure that the web, FTP servers, and external databases are of most recent and the front-end and back-end programming is done with the future upgrades in mind.

Step 7. Make Your Cryptocurrency Legal

Make sure that your cryptocurrency is prepared and abiding by the soon to become laws of international cryptocurrency regulations. This way your work is preserved and no sudden surprises can ruin your efforts in creating a new cryptocurrency.

Top Blockchain Platforms of The World:

  • Ethereum (Market Leader With 82.70% Shareholding)
  • Waves (WAVES)
  • Hyperledger Fabric
  • NEM
  • IBM blockchain
  • Nxt (NXT)
  • HydraChain
  • BlockStarter
  • BigChainDB
  • EOS
  • Quorum
  • IOTA
  • CoinList
  • MultiChain
  • Openchain
  • Chain Core

Best Cryptocurrencies That Made It Large: Success Stories


Bitcoin has become the synonym of cryptocurrency so much that people use the word Bitcoin instead of Cryptocurrency.


Litecoin is often said the silver to Bitcoin’s gold. It is much similar to Bitcoin but has a faster block generation rate with faster transaction confirmation.


Ethereum is proud of the fact that it has provided a decentralized platform for smart contracts without any downtime, 3rd party interference, and fraud.

Final Word

Cryptocurrency is a very promising future in the glorious institution of currencies. If you plan to run a successful and growing business for a long future, you must start by putting the foundation for your own cryptocurrency in the present.

To create your own cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, you need a smart technology partner that has a good experience working with future technologies like these.

    • Hello,

      i am interested in the informations creating own crypto coin…

      how can i reach you..

      best regards,


    • Would it be possible to create a coin that had a limit on how many coins each account can own? I’m thinking that would keep the big money at bay that always seems to rob all the little guys. Wouldn’t that be the true people’s coin? We can call it the whalers coin.

    • I run an edtech platform with about 1 million users. I am looking for creating our own cryptocurrency to reward our users.

      I would be happy to associate with individuals or organisations having their own Cryptocurrency, or having experience and expertise in developing cryptocurrency.

  4. Thanks for sharing such a useful article here which helpful for crypto lovers who are all interested in cryptocurrency development.

    • i’m down – 10×000 coins per reward, .006 seconds to mine, $ is the symbol, and set specific amount of coins, until set specific amount of coins is reached, and it’ll be engraved in stone for all future $hit Coin Developers to remember.

  5. It actually is very informative. As i have mentioned to a couple of posters. The one thing you’re missing is the coding of the token you wish to create. I will see if admin mail me and i will be only to happy to have my code posted on this page. All the creator has to do is change the token name, amount, decimals etc etc Its pretty straight forward.

  26. Dear John,
    You’re reply has generated a lot of “dear John” letters on here. Wonder if I’d get the same reaction if I said I had a token almost ready for launch that I was willing to give away. This is a new niche as crypto is more widely accepted and more people look to capitalize off of it anyway possible. To anyone with experience in coding, creating coins or tokens, feel free to contact me as I have plans for creating a site to help people launch their coin/token without having to learn all the technicals or hire devs. I want to help streamline this process but will need more & more qualified people to do so. Thanks for the information on here and thanks in advance to anyone willing to join me & learn more about streamlining the process of launching new crypto for people and businesses.

  27. Is your Js script still available, I’m interested we can work together if you don’t mind better still you can send the Js to me through email

  28. Hi John, I am interested in making my own crypto-currency, Please provide me with the required code to make changes for my own crypto-currency. Glad if you can share JS via mail at [email protected].

  29. Can we get in touch to see how I can work with you on the javascript code. I think this can be put onto github to open source it.

  30. Hi all,

    I’m sorry I was lil busy with some work so couldn’t reply back. However, I have communicated with few people personally and have sent the required files. It’s time to help more people. Here’s my email [email protected] shoot your email I’ll get back to you within 24 hours. Thanks

  31. I’m trying to determine if the non-profit organization I am involved with should develop their own cryptocurrency and how it can be used to their benefit. Can anyone help us with that?

  32. Hello,
    I want to create my own crypto currency to play any knows websites or companies can do this for me

  33. Hello there,
    This is a very nice piece of share made to the public. Indeed, everybody have the rights to create their own Crypto, but the only ones which sustains are those who has a very solid foundation, including the proper legal structure and other adaptability regulations. For instance, we as a company we have all our legals and structures prepared by our incorporator (RCPSECURE GLOBAL LLC). You will definitely need a strong base. Even if you create the best coins out there, in these days, without a planned structure which adheres to rules and regulations or even compliance, you won’t be able to do much. As a crypto trading company ourselves, we find it pretty hard for the public users to believe in just ANY coins if you are not following the proper rules. Though for sharing. Best. Ardoino. CTO. BFNX.

  34. The best currency to have is information.
    Crypto has been around since 1979 when I use to use my C-64 an a great program called phone man.
    Back when 2600hz could get you a free call to a cool BBS so you could download a war dialer, or hit up a few VBM’s, You know back when them 950 codes made free calls better then them 4800 codes.
    I’m the Great “Daggorath/TCH”
    I’m an old man now so I don’t do anything but help dumb people that seem smart to others. lolol
    This is what I will do. I will give you one link that may not help everyone on here but I’m 100% sure it will help some one a great deal. I’ll bless you with this link an in turn, you bless my BTC Account.
    It’s a trade of trust, crypto style…
    View site, and thank me after.
    Link to follow: { } – “link is https”
    Thank me here: { 1FXGy3GnSXthRb5XCobDsduy2L9ncBcXZk } Btc

  35. I have all the code and I can create a coin for you or walk you through how to create a Coin/Token. We can even make your very own DEX/Exchange if somebody wants me to show them how for a very small fee. My email is [email protected].

  36. We are doing taxes and other services. I am interesting to creat my own crypto with your help. Please email me the basis.

    Jamal Kashour.
