That being said, we have compiled a roundup of 5 best altcoins in 2019 that will surge and make you earn more money. So, without any further ado let’s get started with the list of 5 best altcoins.
1. Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum is known as the king of all altcoins, and currently, it is ranked at the second position after Bitcoin. Ethereum had many issues this year including the rapid decline in its price. CEO and developer of Ethereum said that this rapid collapse in the prices is because of the network returning to its normal levels. Even with the decline in the price, we don’t see a cryptosphere where Ethereum doesn’t exist. Many crypto bulls say that Ethereum will surge and recover all the previous losses in the coming year.
2. Ripple (XRP)
Ripple (XRP) is a remittance system and a gross reconciliation network developed by a US-based company known as Ripple Labs Inc.

Moreover, its objective is to provide financial institutions instant and cheaper cross-border transactions. Ripple is developed by a shared public ledger known as XRP ledger that implements a consensus procedure to enable remittances, payments and exchanges in a distributed method. Thus ripple’s objective is to provide instant cross-border transactions many banking giants have partnered ripple, and more banks are expected to implement the ripple protocol in 2019. The reason that ripple is safe today from the SEC we believe that ripple will survive the crypto bloodbath and surge shortly.

Litecoin is the seventh biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, and it is the oldest altcoin in this roundup. Litecoin was founded back in 2011, and no it’s a BTC alternative having the top 10 market cap of more than 3 billion USD. Litecoin is a peer-to-peer digital asset that allows cheaper and instant payments to anyone around the globe. Moreover, the main difference between bitcoin and litecoin is the total supply limit. Litecoin’s coin limit is 84 million, and bitcoin’s total supply limit is 21 million. The mining time of every block on the LTC blockchain is 2.5 minutes. That being said, Litecoin is one of the major four on Coinbase with over millions of active users Litecoin will surely surge in 2019.

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…
