3 Cryptos To Blow Up In The Next Bull Run




It has been an entire year since the last real bull run in cryptos and most traders and investors are ready to experience the excitement of their favorite coins blowing up once again. Ever since January 2018, all that the crypto market was experiencing were price drops, with minor attempts at recovery, which would only lead to another decline in prices.

However, there are several reasons to believe that this situation might change in 2019. Naturally, many are hoping to see it happen sooner, rather than later. One such reason is the natural progress of the crypto market. According to analysts, the market moves in cycles, which include bearish and bullish behavior alike. With the last bearish trend taking up the entire year of 2018, it is now time for the more positive development to take place.

Another reason includes large projects that have a goal to deal with problems that the crypto market has been facing, such as high volatility, scalability, and alike. If developers were to find solutions to problems like these or at least provide a better alternative to the current situation, this could encourage investors to become even more active within the crypto space, which can lead to a lot of positive development.

Finally, there are projects that aim to bring institutional investors to the crypto market, by solving issues that institutions are most concerned about. This is considered to be one of the most likely reasons to inspire another bull run, as institutions already have a massive interest in the crypto space. All that they need in order to join up is a bit of encouragement and a hint of progress regarding regulations, security, and maturity of the market itself.

But, even if the bull run were to arrive anytime soon, which coins might be the ones to lead it? Who might be among the top gainers? Here are 3 suggestions that might give you an idea of what to expect.

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)

For anyone who knows the crypto market even a little bit, it is of a small surprise that Bitcoin is included into this group. Despite all that happened to the largest coin, it is still the most dominant one, with more than half the total crypto market cap being owned by BTC. Bitcoin is one of the coins that everyone wants to see succeed. It has started the crypto trend, it led it ever since, and it was always the first, the largest, and the most influential.

Furthermore, a large part of businesses that do work with crypto tends to choose Bitcoin. Exchanges do it, stores do it, service providers do it. In time, they will open up to other coins, but for now, BTC is unique even among the cryptocurrencies. The coin has also shown that it has the potential to be massive, with its current all-time high being slightly above $20,000. This is something that BTC will undoubtedly regain, and even exceed in due time. All it takes is a bull run to take it back to those heights once again.

Right now, Bitcoin has a price of $3,681, which is its lowest in 2019 so far. While a further drop has been expected, and will likely take BTC to an even lower price, many analysts and experts remain bullish, expecting BTC to rise up as a continuation of its cycle, likely at some point during the current year.

  1. XRP

Next, we have XRP, which is currently the second largest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap. XRP has come a long way in 2018, from accusations of being security, through lawsuits and suspicions of being centralized, it finally arrived at a point where it sees positive progress. Finally, controversies are being forgotten, and XRP is mostly talked about as the most popular coin among banks and financial institutions around the world.

This is due to the banks’ desire to improve their systems used for international payments, which are considered to be old and outdated by today’s standards. If we can send instant messages and emails around the world, why not instant payments as well? So far, traditional payment systems needed several days for any transaction to go through, but through XRP, and with the help of products created by XRP’s parent company, Ripple, this problem can become a thing of the past.

Ripple’s products can only send money in the form of XRP, and financial institutions are seemingly quite impressed by this technology. Because of this, we do not only have a confirmation that XRP will stay relevant, but also that it will grow as it gains more users. Traditionally, XRP has always had a pretty low price when compared to giants like Bitcoin, or even Ethereum. However, it is up there with them when it comes to market cap. In fact, it just overtook Ethereum’s position for the third time in the last six months, showing that the coin is very much alive and that the next bull run might bring its price to completely new heights.

  1. TRON (TRX)

Finally, there is TRON. This is, without a doubt, one of the coins that have managed to make the most progress during the previous year. While its price may be low right now, TRON may be the coin that received the most coverage from the media, and the coin that has entered the largest number of partnerships, exchanges, and alike.

Additionally, TRON is always talking about its goal to decentralize the web. However, unlike others who set up large goals and then simply stay in place, never achieving them, TRON is actually making moves towards it. Its development and business moves are making the coin more and more relevant with each new project, listing, partnership, or dApp.

And, while many are blaming TRON’s popularity to the hype alone, it can’t be denied that this coin has connections and value, even if it has yet to be added to it in an obvious way. Still, that is what bull runs are for, and hopefully, the next one will see TRON rise to new heights, and maybe even join the top of the top coins.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes




While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level




Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
