4 Things That Will Make An Altcoin Successful




Since the crypto craze began, there have been hundreds of altcoins that have emerged and attempted to take over the world of crypto with their advanced and innovative ideas. While these days there are well over 2,000 individual coins, there have been many more to emerge and disappear, all within the last 10 years.

Clearly, having an idea and launching the coin itself is not enough. While it is by no means easy to do so, there are additional measures and rules that you, as an altcoin creator, need to consider if you want your coin to remain relevant. Clearly, not every idea can succeed, and after 10 years, it is quite difficult to present something new. However, cryptos are still a new technology, which is why there are still many unexplored possibilities that may allow you to reach success.

Secrets to altcoin success

1. Capturing the attention

As mentioned earlier, there is not a lot of things that are simple when it comes to creating altcoins. However, while your plan and idea make sense to you, no matter how complex they end up being, this will not be the case with potential investors. Many of them might give up on getting involved if they do not understand what the coin is all about, or if the road ahead seems too complicated and unclear.

This is why having an idea is not enough. What you need to do is simplify it, at least in the beginning. Use only one short line as a hook that will attract people and leave the coin in their mind and memory. This is a strategy that has been used in advertising for ages, which means that it will work. In a way, the first step to launching a successful coin is to capture the short and fickle attention span of an investor.

2. Find a new angle

As mentioned earlier, cryptos have been constantly working on improving themselves and covering new things for an entire decade now. As time goes by, this process is speeding up. While many have recognized the flaws of original coins and altcoins, and have attempted to create new technology that will offer better solutions, this is a much more difficult road to follow.

If your aim is to launch a new altcoin, and not fix the old problems, you might want to try and find a new angle. In other words, strike out on your own, and search for ideas that have yet to be explored and approached. If you cannot beat the competition when it comes to advanced technology, the best you can do is to be original.

3. Do not lose your investors

Once you have created a new altcoin, made it simple and unique, investors will likely come and give it some attention. If things go your way, the coin might even become quite popular. At this point, a lot of coins have disappeared because their creators thought that this is it, and there is nothing else left for them to do. What they failed to realize is that creating a coin and starting to attract attention is only the first step in the grand scheme of things.

There is always initial exciting when a new altcoin comes to the existence. However, if you are not careful, the excitement will pass, and your coin will be forgotten. Newer coins will appear, and yours will be left behind. This is why the team behind the coin must always keep finding new ways to capture the attention focused on their product. This may include anything, from events to new upgrades, sharing the progress and announcing plans and partnerships almost on a daily basis.

If people became interested in your project in the first place, that means that they are giving it a chance. Keep them interested, show them that you are working on it constantly, reward their attention by showing them the effort as well as results, and they will stay.

4. Create a community

A strong community is one of the most important aspects of any altcoin. Having a community means having supporters and investors, which is what allows an altcoin to grow. The community will be there for you and your coin, they will help spread the word, and they will help the coin survive difficult times.

A lot of coins became popular, only to nearly fade away after a while. However, their communities did not allow it, and they brought them back. One such coin is Dogecoin, which came to be as a joke, an old meme from half a decade ago. However, while its value is still very low, Doge is very much alive even today, simply because of meme lovers who did not let it disappear. While a community is only one aspect of keeping your altcoin alive and successful, it cannot be overlooked, as altcoin cannot exist without its supporters.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021



WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry



Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

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.

Mission Statement

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, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
