This movie is getting old.

Every day we comb through the news, scour the web, and flip through the feeds on our social media pages. We look for the movement on our favorite coin(s) and we search for solid investment opportunities. Of course, the dominant advice we are fed inevitably leads us back to Bitcoin (BTC).

Is it a good time to invest in Bitcoin (BTC)? Is Bitcoin (BTC) ready to move? The Twitter feeds are sure of it. Any day now, Bitcoin (BTC) is going to go through the roof. And if you don’t get in now, your FOMO will leave you waiting for a dip, hoping to join your giddy friends who knew better all along. But when you open your wallet to check the action on your investment, it’s always the same thing. The undisputed king of the cryptoverse has traded sideways again.

To be clear, Bitcoin (BTC) is going to come back. And when it does, it will likely double or triple overnight. But you know what? So will a number of altcoins in that time. The question that leaves most of us scratching our heads is, which ones? And while no one knows for sure which coin(s) will pop, what follows is a short list of three great crypto-choices we should be watching while we wait for the king to come back.

Basic Attention Token (BAT)

The first (And most obvious) on my short list of coins that will double before Bitcoin (BTC) is the Basic Attention Token (BAT). Dominating headlines with its recent inclusion on Coinbase Pro, this utility token has the potential to see massive gains overnight.

Founded by Brendan Eich, the originator of the Firefox browser, the Basic Attention Token (BAT) is the currency behind Brave. The Brave browser employs powerful ad blocking technology, improving the user experience greatly. The best part is, if you chose to see ads, your verifiable engagement can net you a nice payment in BAT.

The recent news of BAT’s inclusion on Coinbase Pro may have created short-term gains for investors in this usable crypto-product, but BAT is an excellent long-term hold as the company gains steam. As the popularity of the Brave browser grows over time, the value of the token is sure to follow.

Skycoin (SKY)

The next great choice for steady gains as we move into the future is Skycoin. Heavily touted by none other than John McAfee, this coin is associated with a new decentralized internet experience. I am including this coin not just based on its performance over the past days (or the obvious pumping John McAfee might offer) but because of its potential for truly freeing the internet from the central control that holds us all back from an honest web experience.

Billed as the most advanced blockchain platform in the world, Skycoin is up over 8% on the day on news of McAfee’s latest tattoo immortalizing his recent involvement with the team (lulz).

Monetha (MTH)

Finally, diving a little deeper down the list of popular coins is Monetha (MTH). Up yet again today, Monetha (MTH) is making big moves before reaching full maturity in 2019.

The Monetha (MTH) platform is designed to help users verify the reputation of a person or institution before transacting with the party. Securely storing verifiable information related to a users behavior, Monetha (MTH) is another company with usable products helping thousands of people make more informed decisions online.

Working it’s way up the list on coinmarketcap.com, Monetha (MTH) is now ranked #391. With a current market cap of just under US $9 Million, it won’t be long before this coin catches fire (again). You can find Monetha (MTH) making consistent gains on Binance.

So while investing (long term) in the Bitcoin (BTC) dream is still an excellent play, we should all be dipping our toes in the warm waters of the altcoin sea while we wait. The three coins presented here might just net you a fortune before Bitcoin (BTC) does.

Follow me on Twitter as I chart the current price of these picks related to Bitcoin (BTC).

HODLing, or holding on to a certain asset or assets has always been an extremely useful investment strategy, even before cryptocurrencies were even imagined. Now, with the market being more uncertain than ever, many are wondering what is the right thing to do with the coins in their possession.

Of course, things change depending on the coin in question, but today, we are going to talk about why it is a good idea to hold on to your Stellar (XLM) in 2019.

Why You Should Hodl Stellar (XLM)

The crypto market is rich with hundreds, and even thousands of different projects at this point, and separating valuable ones from those that are destined to slowly fade away can be tricky. However, even the biggest skeptics believe that Stellar is a coin that is here to stay.

XLM was first launched in 2014, and for a long time now, it has been among the top 10 cryptos by market cap. It is an open-source, decentralized protocol that allows users to send fiat currencies by using cryptocurrency as a method of transport. In a lot of ways, it is very similar to XRP. However, the biggest difference is that Stellar aims to offer its services to regular people, while XRP is more interested in working with banks and financial institutions.

Nevertheless, sending money, especially when it comes to cross-border…

2018 has been quite a rollercoaster for the crypto space. Coins went up and down more times than anyone could have guessed, not to mention two massive market crashes. However, in a few short weeks, the year will be over, and a new, positive period for the crypto world is expected to arrive.

While there are many predictions for 2019, today we are only interested in one thing — Electroneum (ETN). A lot of people quickly took notice of this coin, and many believe that it is among the coins of the future. Indeed, it has received a lot of attention, and many are interested in why that is, and why investing in it is a good idea. So, let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should invest in ETN in 2019.

1) It is fast

Speed and precision of any service have always been very important to people. This importance is even greater when making a profit depends on it. Electroneum developers were aware of this when they created it, and the coin is up to 5 times faster than Bitcoin. This means that ETN transactions can be confirmed much faster, which in turn reduces fees and waiting time.

Furthermore, there are also plans to create Electroneum Virtual Currency Exchange, which will allow the project to act as an exchange. However, the even…

Has Steemit seen its glory days run dry? There have been many rumors that the CEO Ned Scott has pushed the company to the blockchain focus that he forgot about Steem being a social media platform. Now, these are just things some of the former employees have been heard saying, but it is a rather interesting take as to what is going on. Give the following video a watch where I break down what is happening with Steem. I also give my thoughts on what may happen to other large ICOs and how we may see this trend continue as we have seen with ConsenSys laying off 10% of their workforce.

If the big name projects are starting to do this will it also have a trickle-down effect on other ICO’s which have no products and are running out of cash? I definitely think so, and I also see this negatively affecting Ethereum for the mid-term. The question many have been asking is just how long can the bottom 1800 projects last with the current market conditions? How many ICOs did not liquidate their Ethereum and now are stuck with 1/10th the cash flow or more in some cases, how will they pay to continue operations? What about the growing number of projects laying off employees…
