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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
