Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency. Father of all cryptocurrencies. It is the first to introduce blockchain technology. Ethereum is famous for the fact that it is very easy to write smart contracts. A small part of altcoins acts as tokens of some projects. And the rest of the altcoins are Scam projects.

I agree with most of your statement. However, I'm curious as to which altcoins are scam projects? I'm aware of Bitconnect, etc,.. but those have not had unique coins created just for the scam. The scammers used existing coins (eg Bitcoin) as a form to exchange.

They are the different names of cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin is the most famous one with the biggest market value. Bitcoin is the proud son of cryptocurrency. Bitcoin has the power to single handedly change the landscape of  the cryptocurrency market.
