Even though some of the largest crypto predictions for early 2019 did not come to pass — such as a start of a rally, the launch of Bakkt, or the approval of VanEck and SolidX Bitcoin ETF application — most coins did not get affected as strongly as it was believed they would. The crypto market has not yet found stability, but it is attempting to do so, and high volatility is currently avoided by some of the top performers.
Meanwhile, people around the world are turning to crypto, whether it is out of curiosity, the belief that they can change the future, or out of pure need. While their motives may be different, the crypto world connects them all, and their goal is to find and use the best and top-performing coins currently available. To help them find these coins, we have prepared a short list of 4 best-performing coins right now.
1) Binance Coin (BNB)
Binance Coin is currently the 12th largest coin by market cap, and one of the top performer in the crypto space of early 2019. The coin was already performing relatively well due to the fact that it is Binance’s native coin. Now, it sees either stability or several percent-large growths due to its popularity, but also because of Binance’s move which has seen the launch of Binance Jersey, a branch of binance that exchanges fiat to crypto.
BNB value is currently at $6.72, after a 2.34% growth in the last 24 hours. The coin has its first support at $5.46, while the first resistance is believed to be at $12. So far, BNB has experienced a positive movement, although it is possible that an attempt to break the resistance might bring it back down, or even below the $5.4 support.
2) IOTA (MIOTA)
IOTA has started 2019 with relatively stable performance, as well as a promise of great things to come. The project has announced new collaborations which might be able to boost its position and price. Right now, IOTA remains at the rank of 13 on the list of largest cryptocurrencies by market cap, with a price of $0.290594.
The coin has been attempting to grow and exceed $0.403 for the last several weeks, although it appears that the bear market has yet to loosen its grip regarding this coin. If IOTA attempts a breakout, it might reach as much as $0.6 in the near future, and at that point, the next resistance would lie at $0.815.
3) TRON (TRX)
TRON has recently managed to rise through the ranks and enter the top 10 cryptos, currently holding the 9th position. It is also among the best-performing coins of 2019, at least when it comes to the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap. It managed to grow from $0.018, which was its price on December 28th, to its largest price in 2019 so far, which was at $0.34, reached on January 10th. After that, the coin has experienced a sharp correction which brought it back to $0.02, but it continued to rise steadily ever since, with a current price of $0.026974.
In its future, it is possible that TRX will attempt a breakout, with its first resistance at $0.02815. If it succeeds at this, the bulls might bring the coin to a new high, with its next obstacle lying at $0.04. Otherwise, it might start dropping once again, and possibly falling below $0.018 if the bears get to it.
Finally, there is NEO, which has been somewhat under the radar recently. Even though it has been relatively quiet, the coin is still one of the top competitors to Ethereum, and its progression since the early December has been stable. NEO’s current price sits at $7.67, and if the coin attempts a breakout, it would likely grow to $16, and possibly even $20. If the bears prevent this from happening, the coin will likely start losing value again.
Whatever happens in the future, NEO is currently performing with stability, even though it lost a part of its market cap in late 2018, which brought it to the 17th spot on the list of largest coins.

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.”
