After the significant downfall of Bitcoin in January 2018, the competition among the cryptocurrencies that are beyond the influence of BTC has increased considerably. With the leading cryptocurrency in a critical situation, other slightly lesser known currencies are making inroads with their new features and advantages. The presence of approximately eighteen hundred currencies in the market for crypto-traders all across the globe, the vying for a certain price range along with a market capitalization has become even fiercer. Under the circumstances, the competition between EOS and OmiseGo (OMG) seems to be the one that is grabbing the attention of the speculators and crypto-connoisseurs all around the world.

Both of these cryptocurrencies have made considerable progress over the past few months with new developments, technical upgrades, and lucrative partnerships with reputed companies. Despite being relatively new in the market, both of them have managed to topple some well-known big guns in terms of both individual price and market capitalization. However, the competition between these two coins is about reaching the magic figure of $20 as both of them are veering around the $13 mark as far as the price of a single coin is concerned. In this article, you would find out some of the distinct features of both of these coins determining their individual fates by the end of this year.

The Cryptocurrency of OmiseGo and Its Recent Developments

OmiseGo belongs to one of the most rapidly progressive currencies that currently exist in the market. It was first introduced to the market as an Ethereum-based platform capable of supporting payment services and trading along with a highly functional decentralized exchange. OmiseGo is gradually trying to achieve an unprecedented scalability of 1 million transactions per second with its recent technical upgrades.

A few weeks ago, the OMG development team has published an updated roadmap where they explicitly mentioned their future plans along with on-going developments. Some of these technical upgrades include:

  • Elimination of Honte and Cosmos DEx: As the new Plasma DEx is performing significantly better than these two systems, the development team of OMG has permanently omitted these two projects from their roadmap.
  • The Development of Plasma DEx: The OMG developers are working indefatigably on this project for months in order to provide a completely decentralized and secure exchange where the OMG holders can trade this currency from any part of the world. The development is currently at non-custodial plasma DEx stage and will be finished as Full Plasma DEx shortly. Once this project is completed, the OmiseGo users will be able to trade Ethereum along with every ERC-20 token on this platform.
  • Development of Scalable Blockchain: OmiseGo is about to launch one of the most scalable transaction systems for their holders this year. They have already managed developing Plasma MVP while Plasma Tesuji and Plasma Cash projects are rapidly inching towards completion.

Besides these three major developments, OMG team is also working on several other projects regarding the application interface to implement new features. The coin is currently available in several renowned crypto-exchanges like Binance, Huobi, Ethfinex, etc. with a commendable daily trading volume.

EOS Coin and Its Recent Developments:

EOS was developed to offer an unerring blockchain infrastructure for creating and deploying blockchains. Since its introduction in July 2017, this currency has been the center of attention for many traders and companies for its ingenious features. Moreover, EOS is about to migrate from the Ethereum blockchain as it no longer requires its support. On the contrary, EOS has been comprehensively beating ETH in various aspects especially in the execution of Smart Contracts. EOS development team has made a major announcement on the 5th of May, 2018 and as an obvious ramification, the coin has been following an upward trend since then. The announcement was made concerning the upcoming launch of Dawn 4.0.

What Is Dawn 4.0?

Daniel Larimer, the CTO of Block.io has announced the launching of EOS.IO Dawn 4.0 on Medium.com. This unique technology would allow various applications to run into different blockchain and buy unused RAM from them. It would enable users to give away their unused RAM thereby maintaining a balance in supply and order chain. If Dawn 4.0 is properly implemented, it would provide EOS the opportunity to manipulate the price trend as per requirement.

Besides this major development, EOS version 1.0 is also on the way for EOS holders with its innovative new features. The coin is listed on several exchanges like OKEx, Bithumb, Bitfinex, Huobi, and many others.

Current Scenario for EOS and OMG:

At the time of writing i.e. 17th May 2018, both of these currencies possess commendable positions on Coinmarketcap. EOS holds the 5th position ahead of Litecoin with a market cap of 11 billion USD (approx.) and coin price of approximately $13.

OmiseGo, on the other hand, holds the 23rd position with a market capitalization of circa 1.3 billion USD and approximately the same individual coin price of $13.

Final Thoughts:

As far as the current price trends are concerned, both of these currencies are likely to touch the $20 mark within this year. The holders of both coins can be hopeful of a lucrative 2018 if all the upgrades are implemented successfully as per their respective roadmaps. We all know that the crypto-market is known for its volatility and capricious price fluctuations. But the way these two coins are moving, reaching the $20 shouldn’t be a major impediment for either of them.

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.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

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.

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,…
