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).

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of…

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world.  Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
