Enthusiasm appears to be coming back into the market on the back of Bitcoin’s recent surge, and it’s now time for traders to re-evaluate the coins that belong in their cryptocurrency portfolio.  A powerful influencer on Twitter recently posted that the current environment feels a lot like 2017 in that micro caps may be setting up for a powerful bull run.  During the past year, I’ve written a lot about the potential that Encrypgen (DNA) has.  And while many other companies have disappointed their token hodlers, Encrypgen continues to demonstrate why its platform will stand the test of time.  As new money continues to come rushing into the market, and Encrypgen continues to exceed expectations, there is no doubt that the DNA token belongs in your portfolio!

Major Milestone Achieved

Encrypgen’s team, led by David Koepsell, recently announced that the final functionality was completed for the Gene-Chain.  This means that anyone can use their ERC20 DNA tokens to buy and sell data.  Thus far, there have been more than 100 transactions recorded on the Gene-Chain and with the final functionality now in place, that number should begin to increase exponentially.  In January, I read a really interesting article that suggested Encrypgen could become the Amazon.com for genomic data.  That is certainly an ambitious goal but if any company can do it, it’s Encrypgen.

Although the Gene-Chain is completed, that certainly doesn’t mean that the team is done improving the platform.  In fact, there is an exciting new tool coming within the next few weeks that researchers are going to love.  Custom surveys will be added to the platform shortly which will allow researchers to gather additional data from sellers.  This is a win-win for everyone because data sellers will be additionally compensated, and the scientific community will receive additional information that can be used in their efforts to understand and improve medical care.

It’s important to remember that DNA is a utility coin.  This means that the value will be derived primarily from usage on the Gene-Chain.  The more data transactions that occur, the more likely it is that the value of the token increases.  Therefore, streamlining the transaction process as much as possible for researchers and data sellers is of paramount importance.  Encrypgen is doing all it can to accomplish that.

Partnerships are the Key

With the Gene-Chain now complete, Encrypgen’s team can now focus on another massively important task which is to enter into partnerships that will help grow the Gene-Chain.

The company has already entered in a couple lucrative partnerships that began in December, 2018, when Encrypgen signed a deal with Murrieta Genomics.  And then, one month later, Encrypgen did it again by partnering with viazoi.  Both of these partnerships will go a long way toward driving growth of the Gene-Chain and the DNA currency.  But that is only the beginning.

The goal is to have at least 10,000 users on the Gene-Chain by 2020.  But that number can certainly prove to be a low estimate if additional partnerships and deals are signed over the next 6-12 months.  Encrypgen hasn’t disappointed yet so there is no reason to believe they won’t succeed on this front as well.

Exchanges – Cryptopia, CoinExchange, and IDEX

As many of you know by now, Cryptopia suffered a hack earlier this year.  Since then, the exchange has been working hard to restore security and trading.  The company recently re-opened the website and has also enabled deposits/withdrawals and trading on many pairs.  Unfortunately, DNA has yet to be re-listed but it’s only a matter of time.  While traders eagerly await the return of DNA trading on Cryptopia, there are a few other options in the meantime.  CoinExchange and IDEX are both trustworthy exchanges that traders can have confidence in.  Unfortunately, there isn’t much volume at this time, but that can change quickly with more participation.

Final Thoughts

Encrypgen is making all the right moves to be the Amazon.com for genomic data.  The technology is second to none, and the growth will almost certainly come with additional marketing and partnerships.  I’ve never been more confident in a token which is why Encrypgen is my top altcoin pick for 2019.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
