I would guess that some other coins copied bitcoin source code or design.

The crux is if you develop applications for bitcoin (using the various apis, will they work with any other coins with just config and/or minor changes? Specifically P2SH and multisig.

Bitcoin cash perhaps?

Obviously things like ripple, neo and ethereum are completely different.


Literally, hundreds of coins are built off the original Bitcoin code. You should check out the GitHub projects of coins you are interested in, there you will see the source code and can draw similarities with the bitcoin GitHub repository.
