2018 is almost at an end, with only a few days left before we enter the new year. Considering the fact that 2018 was mostly dominated by a bear market that has brought massive losses to the crypto world, most investors are having large expectations of 2019.

While there are a lot of things expected to arrive that might change the situation in the new year, investors are still mostly interested in individual coin predictions, hoping to buy as the future stars of the crypto space are cheap. In order to help, we have created a list of 3 most promising cryptos for 2019.

1) Stellar (XLM)

Stellar is an obvious candidate, as it is one of the fastest coins in the world. It is also very cheap, and it received a lot of attention due to the fact that the tech giant IBM itself approached it for a partnership. Stellar offers efficient and fast international transactions, which makes it similar to XRP in some ways. However, one big difference between the two is that XRP aims to work with banks, while XLM offers its services to individuals.

Stellar has a lot of potential for the future, and anyone looking to make a sound investment should definitely consider this coin.

2) 4New

4New is a new project that most people are not familiar with at this point. While the coin has yet to make a name for itself, some investors who always search for cryptos with potential for the future have already reported that this coin has what it takes to go big, perhaps as soon as in 2019. The project focuses on running factories that convert waste to electricity through the process of burning the trash.

The electricity is then tokenized, which enhances to coin’s position within the market, The coin is even more promising due to the fact that progressive tech is being used for cleaning up waste. This is one of the coins with the most obvious impact on the real world, which is why many might find it interesting and worthy of their time.

While nobody can claim that this is the currency that will dominate the next year, it is definitely an altcoin worth keeping an eye on.

3) Basic Attention Token (BAT)

BAT is a coin that has already intrigued countless traders, investors, and even just regular crypto enthusiasts around the world. It is the coin that aims to revolutionize how advertising works, and it comes closely tied to the Brave browser. The project is simple, yet brilliant in concept — the Brave browser arrives with an Adblock and similar security features that protect the user from being bombarded by ads during their browsing sessions.

At the same time, the browser also allows users to choose when to watch ads themselves, and for each ad they view, they will be paid in small amounts of BAT. The process has real potential, and it aims to change the way advertising works. Not only will users be encouraged to view ads, but the companies making them will be able to get proper feedback from their targeted audience.

Furthermore, coins earned through the browser may be used for tipping your favorite online content creator, different websites, and alike. In the future, it may also be possible to withdraw BAT tokens and use them for trading, purchasing goods and services, and more.

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…
