The global banking and financial systems are showing cracks in their facade and cryptocurrencies may soon be the more viable options. 2019 may be the year of the cryptocurrency. While the most well known of cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, saw a decline in value in the last half of 2018, other cryptocurrencies are making an appearance on the market. Bitcoin is the most spoken about, together with Ethereum, but there are three innovative and emerging cryptocurrency trends that investors should look out for include:

  • Jetcoin
  • Fatcom
  • 0x (ZRX)

Jetcoin

Eric Alexandre founded the Jetcoin Institute in 2014. Doing what he knows best, dealing with stars and talent, Eric Alexandre found a way to give fans of athletes and stars a way to participate in their success. Individuals are able to choose talent from Alexandre’s pool of ‘Jetcoin talent.’ As the athletes find success, so do the investors.

Some of the Jetcoin talents include the Manchester United’s star athlete, Luiz Roza Fernandinho, the Real Madrid athlete Marcelo Vierira and Burmese rising fashion star and celebrity, May Myat Noe.

Jetcoin found a smart and innovative way for fans to benefit from their belief and loyalty in a star. Fans buy a crypto token called a JET, investing in their image rights. As the star reaches success, so the value of the token rises. It’s an innovative way of rewarding fans, and an innovative way of aspiring talents to gain recognition too.

Jetcoin is a fresh and innovative cryptocurrency, growing in size and stature. They partnered with the Lagardère Sports Group in 2018 to market the agency’s brands and signed a deal with Prime Sports Rights, to represent Fernandinho and Vierira.

Factom

Factom is a blockchain technology that writes data that can never be changed. It is a concept that was started in 2014, almost built on top of Bitcoin. When something is recorded on Factom, it is there for eternity, it is safe and it does not need verification.

What Factom does is offer a record of data, original records of copy, that is trust able and always verified. It does this for complex industries with great volumes of data. The aim is to become the top provider of blockchain data source solutions.

The currency of Factom is a Factoid and this is the cryptocurrency that is traded by investors. It is an interesting application of cryptocurrency and is increasing in growth at a good rate. Analysts predict a growing trend.

0x (ZRX)

This is the third of our innovate cryptocurrencies. With time it may turn out to be one of the strongest coins in the Cryptocurrency world. At the moment, 0x only support ERC20. There is talk that it may be absorbed into other chains and it is for this reason that people are keeping their eye on 0x.

0x was designed as an open protocol that could offer a decentralized exchange as part of the Ethereum blockchain. It was created to be different from both centralized and decentralized exchanges, offering an excellent combination of features.

Coinbase allows you to buy and sell 0x (ZRX) and the value of this cryptocurrency may soon be realized, making it to the list of our cryptocurrencies to watch.

Binance Coin (BNB) is one of the most interesting cryptocurrencies at the market right now. The coin was developed by the largest crypto exchange by trading volume in the world, and it only works within the exchange’s ecosystem. However, it still managed to achieve what many believed was impossible — it stopped following Bitcoin’s lead, and it started carving its own path.

At the very least, the coin is highly intriguing, but does it hold real value? This is a question that many in the crypto community have been asking for a while now, uncertain whether BNB is a worthy investment or not.

What gives BNB its value?

Binance Coin cannot be used for purchasing goods and services, like Bitcoin. It currently does not fuel a development platform like Ethereum. It cannot even be used as XRP for sending international payments. However, the coin had still managed to triple its price in the last three months and to surge when most other cryptocurrencies were seeing losses due to the last remnants of the crypto winter.

BNB managed to achieve all of this because of its use cases within Binance, but also because of its future potential. First of all, Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world, with millions of customers, most of which use the exchange on a daily basis.

This means that the exchange inspires…

After 2018 crypto winter began, everyone involved with cryptocurrencies experienced quite a difficult period. The prices were down, weak projects started failing, and even the strong ones appeared to be in more trouble than they could face. The year was especially difficult for HODLers, as they expected that the coins’ prices would continue to skyrocket. Instead, they lost a fortune, not even knowing if the prices will ever start returning to their former heights.

These days, things do not seem so bad anymore. The prices are still down, most of the coins are still at their newly-found bottoms, but smaller bull runs are improving the situation, while a massive one still remains somewhere in the future, at least according to optimists.

However, among the coins in the vast and diverse crypto market, one token stands out. Binance Coin is not exactly a typical cryptocurrency, and for many reasons. The biggest one is that it is one of the few tokens out there that does not follow Bitcoin’s lead, at least not anymore. Whether that will change in the future remains to be seen, but for now, BNB appears to be going its own way, carving its own path through the crypto market.

Its price has increased by several hundred percents since the year began, and for now, it continues to grow. As such, it is perhaps more worthy…

At this point, pretty much everyone who knows anything about cryptocurrencies knows that they are based on the concept of decentralization. The same is true for the blockchain technology. While there are some exceptions, such as certain stablecoins, most digital coins follow this principle.

This means that these coins, as well as their network, have no central authority, no single entity that would make choices and decisions that would impact others. However, while most coins managed to achieve this through different complex mechanisms and algorithms — one aspect of crypto trading still remains heavily centralized. We are, of course, talking about crypto exchanges.

Centralization of crypto exchanges

Most of the largest crypto exchanges out there are designed as companies, rather than community-operated platforms. The exchanges have their employees who designed them and developed special tools. They act as customer support, developers, innovators, and alike.

They also get to decide which coins will be listed and which are too weak, uncertain, or not fit to be found on the list. Exchanges are also responsible for keeping the traders’ and investors’ funds safe, which is why they typically develop their own wallets. As such, they are often targeted by hackers, as the coins are stored in an exchange wallet, waiting to be withdrawn, sold, or converted into different currencies.

This makes them extremely unsafe, and investors and traders are always…
