Today I would like to briefly introduce you to my favorite coins. With those I already made very good investment experiences as well. Many of these cryptocurrencies are familiar to you, as most of them are among the top 20 most traded coins. Their enormous market volume and popularity speak for themselves. Therefore, the following cryptocurrencies are very popular, especially among beginners:
10. TRON (TRX)
Yes, I’m a TRON fan! I know that there are a lot of controversial discussions about this cryptocurrency in the forums. However, I am convinced that Tronix (TRX) will establish itself long-term. This Chinese project worth billions is making news headlines almost everyday. Just a few days ago, TRON founder Justin Sun announced the successful partnership with vSport.
Since the ICO launch of the Blockchain solution in July 2017 the value of TRX has increased dramatically. Many experts believe TRON will break the $1 mark by the end of 2018 (value atm: $0.06).
9. carVertical (cV)
My insider tip! CarVertical is the most unknown blockchain solution within our crypto community in this TOP 10. The current ranking (market capitalization: $ 12.194 million = ranked 438 at CoinMarketApp) and the price per coin ($ 0.0021) don’t give any indication of its potential. By using this blockchain solution vehicle data and vehicle checks could be stored and performed in a decentralized form. Partnerships with Diginet, persistent rumors about working with the BMW Group and CarVertical’s goal of being a pioneer in the automotive industry convinced me to buy in.
Investors are expecting big things from NEO. This cryptocurrency is already known as the “Ethereum of China”. In fact, NEO has a certain similarity to Ethereum. It also offers Turning Smart Contracts, whereas valuables can be regenerated. Strong partners such as Microsoft and Bancor almost guarantee a further increase in value in 2018.
7. Cardano (ADA)
Cardano is a very young project and therefore a risk investment. However, there is also a lot of potential in this crypto technology, which is supported by Charles Hoskinson, co-founder of the ETH network. This cryptocurrency already offers third-generation blockchain technology, whereas their founders want to overcome the current problems of other currencies. Through the well-organized white paper and the positive image ADA has become one of the TOP 10 most-traded coins worldwide.
The coin of the day. In recent weeks, EOS has dominated crypto news channels big time! On its first anniversary it is among the 5 biggest cryptocurrencies regarding market capitalization. Because of its board of directors, which includes the masterminds of Steem and Bitshares, the financial strength and a clearly stated goal, EOS is a very good long-term investment.
IOTA is indeed a cryptocurrency for visionaries. Unlike the mentioned coins before, IOTA is not based on blockchain technology. It is based on tangles, through whose intervention the transaction confirmation is omitted. In the future, these tangles should not only guarantee infinite scalability, but also be available to users free of charge. Through IOTA these transactions can be paid automatically. This technology is especially useful for warehousing, e.g. to fill stocks by processing payments automatically without the need of transaction confirmations. If this technology can be implemented successfully, the value of IOTA goes places!
4. Stellar Lumens (XLM)
May I present my absolute favorite coin to you – Stellar Lumens is a decentralized, better version of Ripple! Strong Partners (IBM) creative management (Jed McCaleb, also founder of Ripple), state-of-the-art technology, cheap and very fast transactions speak for themselves. In my opinion, XLM is currently very undervalued. According to some expert statements, the value of XLM will be raising above $600 per coin within the next 6 years (in case all pre-set goals will be achieved)! Please buy in as long as this coin is so cheap!
3. Litecoin (LTC)
We are entering my TOP 3. Please don’t expect any surprises. Charlie Lee’s creation Litecoin (LTC), the so-called “crypto-silver”, is one of the first offshots of bitcoin. A transaction speed four times faster than Bitcoin, numerous world-renowned partnerships, a decentralized mining technology and the enormous reputation in the crypto community did not let me think twice to invest in. Litecoin is a safe bank for me when it comes to a profitable, long-term investment.
2. Ethereum (ETH)
In my opinion, the only Coin who can take on Bitcoin. Ethereum (ETH) is a Smart Contracts-based blockchain solution founded by Vitalik Buterin, the second largest cryptocurrency after BTC. Ethereum is mostly used as an ICO platform. There is even a page for freelancers called Ethlance, whereas the payment is just processed with ETH. ETH is already very well established and shows clear benefits compared with Bitcoin due to its higher speed and lower transfer costs. Crypto experts assume, that ETH will be able to compete with the value of BTC within the next 5 years.
1. Bitcoin (BTC)
No matter how often we are going to discuss new ICOs and potential “superstars” within our community – nothing really works without Bitcoin. Almost every coin rises and falls with BTC. The founders of Bitcoin are already working hard on the scaling issues, including the reduction of transaction costs and the improvement of the process speed. The predictions for the world’s biggest cryptocurrency could not be more different. But they all agreed in one thing- the value of BTC will increase one way or another.
Those were my TOP 10 investment recommendations 😊 I know, there should be many more Coins mentioned and appreciated (Monero, NEM)… Maybe they are in your TOP 10? Let me know in the comments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to write me!
