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.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
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…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
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…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
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.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
Karatbars International and GSB Gold Standard Banking Corporation…
