Do you remember the time when Microsoft, Yahoo and Google stocks created millionaires out of nothing? (Please don’t mention Facebook). It’s expected that cryptocurrencies will do the same trick real soon (Electroneum and Graft could help, I’ll tell why later). It did it already, as investors who came into the market between 2010 and 2017 had the chance to have great gains when Bitcoin hit the $20,000 mark.
The current year has been lousy, but the best is yet to come. 2018 has been under the bear’s hug all year. Most coins have gone down by something like 90% which is not great news for speculators. It would be terrible news if you bought when everything was high (last December). But for smart investors and aficionados, this is the best of all times. This is the time in which you can buy cheap and then sit back and see how prices go up as the next bull run arrives. And it will come. We don’t know when, but it will.
The question is: which are the best baskets for your eggs? In this article, we will suggest two. Of course, you will need to do your own research and make your own decision. We are not financial advisors; we just point the way in directions that make sense.
In a market that has been going steadily down, Electroneum (ETN) has been going up. Almost 400% over the last month.
The reason for Electroneum’s success is real-world demand for the token. You can mine this coin by just installing an app on your mobile phone and then it’s useful for any kind of micropayment you could imagine.
This makes a cryptocurrency useful for lots of people all around the world who don’t have access to bank accounts or other services offered by the traditional financial system. And this kind of demand can only grow up.
Among the factors that have been holding adoption of cryptocurrencies all over the world are regulations. Electroneum is fully compliant with regulations. This means it can only keep growing in demand and value, very quickly, quite significantly. If just a few strategic partners adopt Electroneum sometime soon, it will take off in a spectacular way.
Electroneum is very cheap now. And you can get some for free if you just install the app. Keep an eye out for it; we believe you won’t regret it.
Graft is not in the limelight the way Cardano or Tron is, but you should have a look at it. It has the same potential as Electroneum to outperform the current (and future) market.
This is a currency that aims to give everybody easy access to settle payments instantly in any way you want, be it crypto or fiat currency. It’s like Ripple for the masses, not just for banks.
Because of that appeal, traders and merchants are integrating Graft (GRFT) into their platforms very quickly and that will create trade volume and demand which will, in turn, raise the coin’s value. Remember: in the long term it will be usefulness, not speculation, that will decide which tokens rise in value and which ones will disappear.
Graft has also tried hard to comply with international regulations, which makes it a safer bet than many other crypto-coins.
Right now this is a somewhat obscure project, but it’s so well designed and useful that, as far as we can tell, the future looks bright for it.

TokenPay (TPAY), Litecoin, and Verge (XVG) alliance about to transpire
Ever since the cryptocurrency sphere was met with the news of the partnership between Litecoin Foundation, TokenPay, and Verge (XVG), the idea of them coming together has been among the most controversial news to ever surface in the cryptocurrency world.
The collaboration managed to even draw the attention of one of the most renowned crypto-influencer and bitcoin campaigner, Tone Vays. In his usual style, Tone took to Twitter handle on hearing the news, tweeting and expressing his disapproval while criticizing the creators of the three cryptocurrencies for allowing such a move to occur.
In retaliation to the attacks from Tone, Charlie Lee, the MD, and founder of Litecoin (LTC) posted his clarification on Reddit on the 17th July in regards to the partnership. Litecoin’s CEO started by explaining the dissimilarities between Litecoin as a currency and Litecoin as a company.
In his remarks, he said that Litecoin as a blockchain and crypto network is a decentralized network, whereas Litecoin Foundation as a company is a centralized non-profit institution whose goal is to ensure Litecoin (LTC) is developed, adopted, and used. Charlie also mentioned that Litecoin’s cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies did not require his direct services at the moment hence his concentration on Litecoin Foundation.
Charlie Lee made his remarks known saying:
“If Litecoin Foundation (LF) is exposed to not doing a good job, nothing should prevent another organisation to step in and do a better job. This is…
Here’s Why This Coin Still Has Wings (WINGS)
WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.
Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.
What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.
The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…
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…
