Do other digital currencies work in the same way as Bitcoin?

Bitcoin inspired the creation of a large number of other digital currencies that work in much the same way as Bitcoin. These newer digital currencies are often cheaper to buy and are easier to mine, but there is often a greater risk because of less liquidity and value retention. The oldest and most stable of the other digital currencies include Litecoin, Ethereum and ZCash (all available at Coindirect).
