4 Coins That Can Dominate Over BTC and ETH

Cryptocurrency space has advanced a lot in recent years, and coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, and Litecoin still remain the biggest hits. However, a large part of the crypto community believes that this will not always be the case.

Many believe that these coins are slowly becoming relics of the past, and while their contribution can never be denied (they did bring on the crypto trend, after all), their technology will eventually make them extremely limited. If this does happen, other, more modern coins will have to take their place and become the next Bitcoin or Ethereum.

While this is all speculation at this point, many believe that it will come to pass within a few years. While this can easily mean that the coins that will dominate the future still don’t even exist, they can just as easily already be a part of the space. Since we can’t predict what new coins will arrive in the next several years, all we can do is check out which existing altcoins might become leading cryptos.

1. TRON (TRX)

For a lot of people, TRON (TRX) is undoubtedly a coin of the future. Not only does it plan to revolutionize the entertainment industry, and really, the web itself — it is also extremely modern, and it seemingly doesn’t know how to make a bad deal. Its creator, Justin Sun, has managed to make one of the strongest, largest, and most supportive communities in the entire space, all through the combination of his personality and a simple Twitter account.

TRON has achieved a lot in 2018, and it announced even more for the future. While its price has yet to reflect these achievements and promises, many expect that it will respond at some point, likely by a huge surge.

2. IOTA (MIOTA)

IOTA is a coin that seems to have developed a special relationship with the IoT and a car-making industry. It is viewed less as a coin, and more as a blockchain project, which can use its far reach and connections to create a huge network of various devices. However, the coin is one of the main aspects of the project itself, and so it will likely grow to be just as big as the rest of the project.

Right now, IOTA is not performing so well, with its price being only a fraction of its potential. However, the same can be said for a lot of other coins, and the project should not be judged for it. It certainly has a lot of potentials, and will likely be in tight connection to the future technological development.

3. NEO

NEO is the most Ethereum-like coin on this list, and as such, it has a fair chance to actually replace ETH someday. It was branded one of the two potential Ethereum killers (the other one being EOS), and many believe that this is the coin that will prevail.

NEO allows developers to create dApps and smart contracts on its network, similarly to Ethereum. However, its supporters will argue that it does everything much better and faster. In fact, NEO is well-known for its developer community, and thanks to superior technology, it is not a stretch to assume that it will be one of the main coins of the future.

4. Monero (XMR)

As far as coins used for payments go, Monero is probably among the best choices, and one of the largest altcoins of the future. As many are aware of, XMR is a privacy coin, meaning that it is capable of allowing its users anonymity while making transactions. It offers stealth addresses and confidential transactions, and it is decentralized as well as fungible,

While numerous privacy coins are still struggling to establish dominance, many believe that Monero will come out on top, and become one of the biggest altcoins in the future.

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…

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…

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.
