The privacy centered cryptocurrency of Moner0 (XMR) might be valued at $39,584 in 10 years: an increment of 33,000% from XMR’s current value of approximately $120. This is according to a new report from initial coin offering advisory and research firm of Satis Group. The report tries to forecast the values of our favorite digital assets in the next 10 years. According to the same report, XRP will be valued at $0.004 by 2028 signifying a drop in value of 98.8% from current values of $0.34.

A summary of the findings can be found in the table below from the report.

The valuation of the cryptocurrencies was based on the following three models:

  1. Top Down: using the quantity theory of money to deduce the value of crypto assets needed to support a forecasted economy
  2. Peer-Based: using multiples of network-specific metrics to arrive at relative valuations
  3. Bottom-Up: using discounted cash flow models to estimate the value of networks that provide yield

The key takeaways from the report are also as follows:

  • The amount of cryptocurrency market value needed to support economic activities to expand from ~$500B next year to $3.6T in 2028
  • 90%+ of cryptocurrency value will be derived from penetration of offshore deposits in the next decade
  • Currency and Privacy networks will be the largest beneficiaries, as most fundamental value will stem from store of value use cases
  • Increment (10 years) in Bitcoin ($143k), Monero ($39k), and Decred ($899): cryptocurrencies which apply unique value propositions within deep and viral markets
  • A decrease in value in in BCH ($180), and cryptocurrencies which attempt to inherit brand recognition and provide minimal technological advantage to incumbents
  • Almost no value in XRP ($0.004), and cryptocurrencies which are misleadingly marketed, not needed within their own network, and have centralized ownership/validation
  • Most “Other Utility” application-specific networks hold very little value, in their current construct

Privacy will Dominate

From the report, we find that crypto users will value the privacy element of the cryptocurrencies around to further boost the value of the digital assets. This can be found in the predicted gains of privacy coins in 10 years from the table below that also stems from the report.

A Rush to Buy Monero (XMR) and other Privacy Coins

Once the report was made public on the 30th of August, Moner0 (XMR) has risen in value from $96 to current levels of $122 at the moment of writing this. This is a 27% increment in value in less than a week. DASH has also risen 19.5% from $174 to current values of $208 in the same time period.

Looking at other privacy coins of Bytecoin (BCN), ZCash (ZEC) and Verge (XVG), there has been similar upward movement since the 30th of August. ZEC is up from $144 to current values of $152: a percentage increase of 5.55%. BCN has also experienced a growth of 30% from $0.0019 on the 30th of August to current levels of $0.00246. XVG has also had some life pumped into its value and by 31% since the report came out.

In conclusion, for short term and long term investment, privacy coins have proven that they will gain the most when compared with other cryptocurrencies in the markets. Monero (XMR) has been projected to lead the pack in terms of gains for the next 10 years. On the other hand, XRP is headed for a decline of over 98% in the next 10 years further putting the case for total capitulation by XRP HODLers.

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

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.

In the past few…
