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.
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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
