While Warren Buffett may not be the biggest fan of the cryptocurrency space, we know that if he was, he’d be looking to buy as much as he could right now. Be greedy when others are fearful is one of the Oracle of Omaha’s core investment tenets and, as the majority of the top twenty coins are getting hammered in the markets this week, now certainly is a fearful period.

We’ve taken this suggestion a step further and set out to find not only the coin that is severely weakened through the overarching negative sentiment in the markets but that has the potential to bounce back the highest as and when things recover.

And here it is – our number one recovery play this week in the cryptocurrency markets:

Verge (XVG).

Verge is currently trading for $0.06 a piece. At this price, the coin commands a total market cap of a little over $982 million ad twenty-four-hour volume hit circa $38 million during the twenty-four hour to time of writing (mid-morning ET).

Unlike the vast majority of other coins, XVG actually peaked on Christmas day, December 25, logging highs of $0.23 a coin for a market cap of more than $3.3 billion. This came on the back of what eventually turned out to be some misinformation on Twitter (we’re looking at you, John McAfee) but, regardless of the driver, it played a key role in drawing speculative attention towards this coin and this helped it to push into the start of 2018 in something of a strong position.

Peaks subsequent to the Christmas day highs came in around $0.22 (on a couple of occasions) but after the now much longed for January 7 market peak, XVG has traded in line with the wider markets and declined to the above mentioned current pricing.

So, right now, the coin is available at a circa 74% discount to its previous highs (highs at which we’ve no doubt many initiated a position), meaning it’s not going to take much of a bump to serve up a nice recovery return on an entry at current pricing.

But as we said, we aren’t just looking for a coin that’s fallen considerably. We also want to see some sort of fundamental driver than can either catalyze an upside run or support an upside revaluation – or both.

And with Verge, it’s all about liquidity.

This coin is one of those that’s in the sphere of awareness of a huge number of crypto enthusiasts but that, at the same time, isn’t privy to the same degree of liquidity that many of its peers enjoy.

This is rooted in the lack of exchange coverage for XVG. We think that this is soon going to change and we’ve put together a number of events to keep an eye on as indicative of a validation of our expectations.

There’s an ongoing Cobinhood vote that’s got XVG as a top contender for a listing in the next round. The same is true of cryptocurrency exchange FatBTC. The coin is already available on Binance and it’s also being added to a number of online outlets as a payment option. It also just picked up a listing on CoinDirect.

Bottom line is this: Privacy coins are going to take the world by storm during 2018 – you can take that statement to the bank. And of those top contenders on the market right now, Verge is the only one that runs a protocol like Wraith and, for us, that puts it at the top of the pile.

Combine this long-term view with a few near-term catalysts and underline it with the fact that the coin is currently available at a 74% discount to highs and you’ve got a winner.

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…

Integrating blockchain technology is fast becoming a necessity for enterprise ventures and small or large businesses, but with a growing number of choices in the tech revolution, it’s difficult to pick a direction without feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of. This is where BEHOLD THE CRYPTOPRENEURS comes in.

Private keys, the myth of anonymity, and the battle against anarchist ideology are only a few of the difficult challenges faced by businesses that want to incorporate blockchain into their culture. Author Dennis H. Lewis guides the reader through those challenges and helps them discover the true potential of investing in this new economic paradigm.

Every business has pain points that must be overcome in order to branch out and thrive in an ever-changing commercial environment. Blockchain has real world solutions and cryptopreneurs are not limited to the cryptocurrencies they invest in but rather how they seize economic and technological opportunities to make it work for them.

Innovation, trust, and solutions can differentiate your business from all the noise, but without a solid marketing plan, a cryptopreneur can have the best idea and never get far. Remember: a million great ideas times zero market presence equals zero success.

Investors want to know there is public interest and enthusiasm in a project before they commit any money to it. As a cryptopreneur, you are tasked with generating that interest from the…
