As crypto users, we know for a fact that one of the most valuable tools for us to handle is Crypto-to-Cash converters, a field that seems to be a wider one every day. However, not all of the time these converters are that trustable and that’s precisely the moment where we start to question what’s the perfect place to go to when we want to access trustable information of the prices that specific crypto trades can give us in our fiat currency.

In this sense, nothing says more ‘trustable’ than Google does, or at least that’s what most of us believe when we want to search on the internet, let’s say, anything. And guess what?

One of the things that we can search right now on Google is the price in cash that we would receive by trading certain crypto coins, a brilliant move made by Google that many might consider a little daunting for the search giant in the end. Let’s see how it goes.

Google’s crypto-to-cash converter

Google’s ability to convert from Bitcoin to cash is not actually that new. In fact, we all have been enjoying the latest feature of the giant for a couple of months now.

But truth be told, the possibility of extrapolating this to other cryptos in the market was actually not so close, or at least that’s what we thought, which is the main reason why we almost lost our minds finding out of the adding of altcoins such as Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BTH).

As a matter of fact, you can always search on Google for any crypto-related conversion that you want to have, but what the company has done differently in order to make it stand out is that once you search for a specific crypto, let’s say for instance ‘Bitcoin’, then it immediately opens its converter and give you the rate for that coin, something similar to what happens once you type and search for ‘translate’.

As of now, in the cases of Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BTH), the only thing we need to do is to type the name and start searching, the first result it shows will be the Crypto-to-Cash converter of Google. However, in the case of Ethereum (ETH), the process varies a little bit as the user would need to type the name followed by the request “currency converter”.

Controversy with the newest feature

Not only in the field of crypto but in general terms, one of the most criticized things of Google despite the incredible help that represents for all of us, is that the company seems to know a little too much about ourselves, and to say the least, that is precisely what crypto users tend to avoid.

This is the main reason why a great part of the community seems to be concerned about what would be the true intentions of Google with its latest move. Is it possible that they want to track which are the most tradable coins? Or is it about them building their very own crypto? Well, for now, it just seems like a helpful tool, we all will have to wait and see. So stay tuned.

The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.

The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.

With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.

1) Bearish market to loosen its grip

The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…

2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.

Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)

Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.

One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…

Crypto projects have gone through several crucial periods of development, and while it is fascinating to watch their progress to maturity, a lot of investors are becoming impatient. During the first few years, they were barely known, only talked about in specific groups, among those developers and investors who had the luck to find out about them in the early days.

The next several years, altcoins started appearing, and the voice of cryptocurrency slowly started to spread. Then, there was a period of hype, when crypto exploded, and the entire world finally learned about this new technology that promised to change the world. Naturally, the overhype led to a market crash and price correction that we experienced last year, but the impact was made, and the world is still talking about them on a daily basis.

However, now is the time for cryptos to deliver on their promise, grow up, and start showing results. There are high expectations for many projects, but for various reasons, they have yet to deliver, and many are hoping that 2019 will be the year when they finally do it. Let’s see which 3 crypto projects really need to show results, and soon.

1) Ethereum (ETH)
