Prior to the start of the year, the biggest joke in cryptocurrency was about lambo chasers. In other words, traders who expect overnight wealth, so they could call their nearest exotic car dealership and buy a lambo. While I’m sure a few lucky traders had the good fortune to time their buys and sells correctly to accomplish that goal, most of us still in the game are probably in a different situation with our tokens.
Most of us are probably HODLing bags of various coins that have fallen 90%+ since the start of 2018. And while most of these coins probably won’t rise back up to our purchase price, a few of them will. The best way to identify those tokens is to look at projects that have developed game-changing technology. I don’t mean “developing” as in promises. I’m talking about companies that have actually delivered on what they set out to do.
While the hype days are over, I believe there are 2 tokens which have the potential to make their HODLers extreme profits. This is especially true since the recent crypto crash has made these tokens extremely undervalued. The 2 tokens I am talking about are the Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Encrypgen (DNA).
Basic Attention Token (BAT)
Basic Attention Token is an open-source, decentralized ad exchange platform based on Ethereum. The token can be used to obtain a variety of advertising and attention-based services on the BAT platform through an exchange between publishers, advertisers, and users.
The digital advertising industry is currently facing a heap of problems that include the following:
- Users are taken advantage of
- Publishers are being crushed by Google and Facebook
- Advertisers are lacking the tools to efficiently target their audience
To combat these issues, the Basic Attention Token works in concert with the revolutionary Brave Browser. Brave browser is a fast, open source, privacy-focused browser that blocks malvertisements, trackers, and anonymously captures user attention.
Since the Brave browser calculates where users spend their time, it’s a great tool for being able to precisely determine which publishers should be rewarded. Rewards are then given to publishers with BATs. It’s really a win-win-win as publishers receive more revenue through the elimination of middlemen, users receive better targeted ads without the fear of malware, and advertisers will get a better sense on how to spend their money.
Now is really a great time to invest in BAT. The company has a token cap of approximately $200 million but was above $800 million at the peak. And the chart indicates that now may be the time to get in. The token has fallen in price by more than 50% during the past few weeks as the crypto macro environment has deteriorated. That being said, this is one of the few tokens that has delivered a product, is in one of the hottest industries, and is significantly undervalued.
In early November, Encrypgen launched the world’s first blockchain genomic data marketplace. This was a game changing announcement as the company can now begin generating revenues by bringing data buyers and sellers together through the Gene-Chain platform.
Through this platform, consumers and researchers will be able to transact with each other in a way that is beneficial to both parties, and Encrypgen. Consumers will be able to upload their genomic data, store it securely, and sell it at a fair market price. Researchers will be able to convert BTC to DNA tokens. And then use those DNA tokens to purchase genomic data. In the future, it is expected that researchers will be able to also convert FIAT to DNA on the Gene-Chain. However, because of the regulations involved in this, traders need to be patient.
Encrypgen is currently very active in the process of registering both consumers and researchers to the platform. As the amount of uploaded data sets increases, and the number of participating researchers grows, the DNA token is expected to explode in value. The current token cap of Encrypgen is just a paltry $1.4 million which, is laughable, as the company will soon achieve utility. To put into context the ridiculousness of the company’s current undervaluation, let’s look at a few other tokens that are running jokes in the industry:
- Verge (XVG) – $120 million token cap
- Dogecoin (DOGE) – $258 million token cap
- Monacoin (MONA) – $47.5 million token cap
Verge claims to be an anonymous and privacy-focused coin but hasn’t developed anything. The company has several credibility issues including the disappearance of over 18 million XVG coins from the Verge “fundraising” wallet that were sent to Binance, allegations of paid pumping by John McAfee, and “fundraising” efforts that have been successful only at taking money from traders.
Dogecoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency. However, when you go to the website, the homepage is filled with pictures of Shiba Inu, the dog “mascot” for Doge. There is almost no information available on what the company does. And even one of the Doge creators, Jackson Palmer, has warned against the success of Doge. A $258 million token cap is just bewildering.
Monacoin is a Japanese cryptocurrency. The company has one of the worst crypto websites I’ve ever seen. And on the home page, the following is said:
“Monacoin is a cryptocurrency popularized by the initiative of its community: it continues to be nurtured and built upon not by a core development team but by its enthusiastic user base. To give some examples, Monacoin users have brought up various kinds of Mona-based web applications and services, have erected shrines in appreciation of Monacoin, regularly play word games when tipping others.”
So token holders erect shrines and that means it is worth $47.5 million? Gee, that makes sense. Not!
The point of listing these joke coins is not to criticize them. At the end of the day, I couldn’t care less what coins are worth that I’m not involved with. But what’s troubling is how a project that erects shrines can be worth 30x more than a solid project like Encrypgen. I expect these mispriced valuations to correct in a massive way in 2019 and beyond.
It’s still uncertain what kind of year 2019 will be. I do expect cryptocurrencies to be trading higher than where they are now. But how high is anyone’s guess. Nevertheless, 2 tokens that I expect to generate massive returns are Brave Attention Token and Encrypgen. If traders get in now and accumulate a large enough position, they might become crypto’s next millionaires.

MobileGo (MGO) – An Internet Gaming Pioneer
Although I love trading cryptocurrencies as much as anyone, I’m far more interested in analyzing the impact that blockchain technology can have on the business landscape. After all, blockchain’s potential was the main catalyst behind the surge in trading volume last year. While many industries will be forever changed through blockchain applications, the gaming industry will be the focus of this article.
The first thing my parents would think of upon hearing the word “gaming” is Nintendo. And while video games do make up a considerable percentage of gaming sales, the industry has grown far beyond that. Several years ago, ESPN aired an episode of E:60 that went inside the world of professional video game competitions. One team, Dota2, was on a quest for a piece of an $18.4 million tournament prize pool. Yes, $18.4 million for people who play games. Since then, the industry has grown beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. And one company, MobileGo, appears to be taking full advantage of that opportunity.
MobileGo’s MGO token is an Ethereum based ERC223 token that was developed to usher in a new era in the world of internet gaming. The company’s main goal is to turn MGO into the world’s leading currency for the more than 2.6 billion gamers that currently exist. It is expected that mass adoption will occur as game developers continue to grow their…
The Three Biggest Problems with Crypto
In this bear market, everybody’s asking the same questions. Why is Bitcoin falling? When will the market turn around? Is this the end of the crypto boom?
However, before we can answer questions like these, we need to step back and do an honest appraisal of where our industry stands and what is really holding it back. Despite its growing popularity, cryptocurrency still struggles to gain mainstream appeal. While crypto has managed to distance itself from the early days, when it was used to buy illegal goods online, the currency still conjures up negative feelings for a lot of people unfamiliar with the technology — and all too often, for good reasons.
Cryptocurrency is still relatively new, which means that many casual users are still exploring different ways to use crypto in their day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge leaves a lot of users vulnerable to scammers seeking to take advantage of their ignorance and inexperience.
We’ve contacted various types of people within the crypto community, surveying newbies, traders, investors, and professionals, asking what the biggest problems in crypto are. We found there to be three major problems holding the industry back:
An In-depth Review of the New SuchApp Messaging App
SuchApp has launched and with that comes the next generation of a multi-functioning messaging app which will open doors to targeted communication with individuals and groups. There is unlimited potential in business growth and advertising as well as interactive campaigns and communication with a broad audience.
Join A Group
There is a growing list of groups being developed by leaders and influencers who see the potential for targeted growth in their sectors. Retail and Commercial business owners want to be where the people are, and SuchApp has diverse functionality to reach a global marketplace. What’s more, SuchApp offers uncapped groups, meaning an you have the ability to communicate and network with an unlimited number of people in your target groups.
There are three different types of groups: private, open and secure. What differentiates between them is the ability to keep it open to the public, be invite-only, or launch secure closed groups.
One of our popular open groups is Dogs. Small businesses are beginning to promote their products or services. Large businesses can share their latest sales. The Dogs group invites dog lovers, groomers, pet supply businesses, veterinarians, dog sitters. Like-minded people can find a local dog park and hang out.
