As we approach the end of January 2019, crypto investors around the world are becoming anxious to see some change in an otherwise relatively stationary market. Many have predicted that 2019 will be a big year for crypto, as a large bull run is expected to arrive and help Bitcoin and altcoins reach old heights, and maybe even grow beyond them.

For now, however, no such development has occurred. In the meantime, investors are also looking into the potential future of some smaller altcoins, hoping to find the next big hit among them. Here are crypto price predictions for four coins that many are interested in.

Basic Attention Token (BAT)

Basic Attention Token, or BAT, is currently experiencing a small surge, going up by 2% in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the coin’s price sits at $0.123463. The coin has followed a downward trend ever since it reached its all-time high of $0.864 in January 2018. For the most part, current BAT statistics show that the coin has seemingly found some sort of balance, with no large price fluctuations.

However, its strong connection to the Brave browser might allow it to grow, as the browser will soon allow its users to get payments in BAT for viewing ads. While this was the browser’s goal for a long time, a lot of technical difficulties needed to be addressed first, and the browser is currently testing the system. According to some predictions, BAT might continue to grow steadily in the following months, potentially reaching around $0.4 in six months and $0.64 on January 1st, 2020. The predictions are seemingly positive for the coin, although a bull run might significantly speed up the growth.

IOTA (MIOTA)

Another coin that has attracted a lot of interest is IOTA (MIOTA), which is currently priced at $0.303666. Similarly to BAT, IOTA is also currently trading in the green, with a small 2.07% increase in the last 24 hours. Predictions for the future of IOTA claim that the coin will likely continue to lose value throughout 2019, and partially 2020. Analysts believe that IOTA might continue to drop to the price of $0.07 per coin, which it will hit in May 2020, according to estimates.

After that, the coin will start growing again, with no major incidents regarding its value in foreseeable future. The results seem to indicate that investing in IOTA should be a part of a long-term strategy, as the coin has yet to go through its toughest period. Even so, it is more than possible that some new development or a massive rally might change this outcome.

Zilliqa (ZIL)

ZIL is a cryptocurrency that currently holds the rank of 30th largest coin by market cap. It holds a price of $0.022123 at the time of writing, and it is also trading in the green, with a 1.22% growth in the last 24 hours. However, ZIL price predictions are seemingly much more optimistic than that of IOTA, and the coin is expected to continue growing, albeit slowly.

Some statistics claim that the coin might reach $0.09 by December 2019, and to hit $0.66 in December 2020. After that, 2021 is expected to end with ZIL hitting $2.13, and nearly $5 in December 2022. Zilliqa seems to have a clear path upwards according to these predictions, although, as always, things might change depending on future events.

Electroneum (ETN)

Last but not least, there is Electroneum, which is currently priced at $0.006753, after a large 5.54% drop. While the situation with ETN is currently not encouraging, long-term price predictions for this coin are positive, and ETH is expected to start rising in the following months. Estimates claim that the coin will likely hit $0.01 at some point in 2019, likely around August. After that, the coin is in for a slow but steady rise, which will result in it reaching the value of $2.01 per coin in December 2022.

According to predictions, ETN will likely see the most activity in 2021 and 2022, while 2019 and 2020 are expected to be slow years. However, expectations were always high for ETN, and many believe it to be one of the coins that will go big in the future.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
