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.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
