3 Cryptos You Should HODL At Least Until 2020

Published

The crypto market has been harsh in 2018, and many who once believed that the last few months of the year will repeat what happened in 2017 are slowly but surely giving up hope. While this year has been bearish for the most part and has experienced two major market crashes (with the second one still being on-going), experts still believe that this is not the end of cryptos.

Cryptos have had more than their fair share of rough times in the last decade, and they pulled through. There is no reason why this shouldn’t be the case this time as well. In the meanwhile, investors need to be patient and to turn to HODLing. The history of crypto shows that difficult periods like this usually end only for digital currencies to become more valuable than they ever were before.

If this trend continues, then 2020 may be the year when everything will change, and cryptos like Bitcoin may reach entirely new heights. In the meanwhile, try investing in promising altcoins, projects that are likely to remain in the future. We can recommend three of them right now.

3) Po.et (POE)

POE is the project that is very likely to succeed, especially these days when proving content ownership is so difficult. The internet allows us to share what we create, and show it to others. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop others from copying it and presenting it as their own creation. Po.et aims to change this by using an open, universal ledger that will store information and time-stamped records of your creative content.

That way, authors, artists, and content creators will have their work protected and recognized. One great thing about this platform is that it can cover any form of creative content, including text. Furthermore, with various plugins that are already a part of almost every CMS, articles and blog posts can be easily added to the ledger. They get stamped with the time of the addition, as well as author’s name under publication, and they will officially belong to you forever.

Finally, Po.et will also allow content creators the ability to make a profit off of their work by charging a small amount to others that are interested in accessing it. This is a project that will protect the creativity and hard work of many who are trying to get by while working online or creating art just for the sake of art itself. There will no longer be fear of having their content stolen by others, which is why this project will likely remain for a long time.

2) Ark

Ark is a project that can help blockchain technology take the next step by connecting different blockchains into a single, huge, decentralized network. No longer will token holders have to send their coins to exchanges just in order to trade them and ship them to another blockchain. Instead, they will be able to go from one blockchain to another directly.

This is the project’s vision, and there is still work to be done, since even individual blockchains themselves are still new and, mostly, underdeveloped. However, they will advance in time, and the project might actually thrive in 2020. In addition to connecting blockchains, Ark has a few more things going for it.

It has fast transaction speeds that take around 8 seconds. While this is 5 seconds below the record, it is still quite impressive, and much faster than Bitcoin. Next, Ark will become a huge ecosystem if the project ends up being a success, which will immortalize the coin. It is also decentralized, and it has an equal voting weight for all votes and voters. Finally, it has an experienced team of developers that know what they are doing, which inspires trust and wish for this project to succeed.

1) Steem

Steem is by far the largest and the most popular of the three projects. It runs on the Steem blockchain, and its goal is to provide content creators with a platform that will allow them to earn based on the users’ upvotes.

Simply put, Steemit (Steem’s platform), is a social media platform dedicated to blogging and based on blockchain technology. Many even believe it to be a successor to Facebook. The platform allows content creators to post their own content, as well as to leave comments on the content posted by others. Posts and comments that are deemed worth it by the community will get appropriate rewards, based on upvoting.

There are even various contests such as writing, singing, guessing, art, and more. Almost any kind of work and effort will be recognized and rewarded, which is one way of making a profit relatively quickly. Another positive thing is that money will start arriving faster than it would on a WordPress-based blog, although this doesn’t mean that you can get rich on it. It all depends on your skill and talent, and the amount you earn can vary greatly from one content creator to another.

Another perk is that you don’t need a hosting company, or any money to start, except for the time spent on creating content. Think of it as the social media for blogging that rewards quality content with STEEM coins. If there are any disadvantages, those would be the fact that you do not own the domain, and that you will earn crypto, which is still very volatile, especially these days. However, considering how popular social media platforms have grown to become in the last 13 years, there is a high chance that Steemit will be among the first platforms of the next generation, which will continue the trend, and even allow you to make some money while using it.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
