Investing in cryptocurrencies is always a risky thing to do, especially for newcomers to the crypto world. Deciding which coin is worth it, which of them might have a future, and which will provide returns on your investment is never easy. This is why most people decide to go for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). These two have proven their value, and have a reputation as coins that can make you rich.
But, are those the only ones that you can trust? Is there no other coin that is a safe bet? Well, there is. In fact, there are three of them – NEO, EOS, and Cardano (ADA). Of course, you should not take our word for it, which is why we will see why these coins are the best choice for new investments.
NEO, EOS, and ADA
There has been a lot of talk about these three coins in the last several months, and with good reason. Each of them has managed to make significant advances, in their own way. They have experienced a significant increase at the end of 2017, just like all other coins. Despite the fact that they were hit hard after that, the coins kept fighting, and have even managed to reach some level of stability, hitting certain prices, at sticking to them.
NEO and EOS, even though they have their own goals, were even seen as rivals. Each of these coins has been seen as a possible candidate that has the power to kill off Ethereum and replace it. Additionally, they represent the third generation of cryptos, as well as Cardano. While Bitcoin was the coin of the first generation and has become its representative, Ethereum belonged to the second one and had become a representative of the second wave.
Now, the third generation is struggling to find a coin worthy of being the primary crypto of the third wave, and all of these coins are possible candidates.
Where does the potential of these coins lie?
NEO has a lot of potentials, especially in the eastern markets. It is designed to be very similar to Ethereum, in terms of what it has to offer. Many would argue that it is actually doing everything that ETH is doing, only better. It is also very popular in China, which has been known for its skepticism towards cryptos. These things have earned it the nickname ‘Chinese Ethereum,’ and this coin has a potential to dominate this untapped market.
As for EOS, it has made significant progress recently by launching its own MainNet. True, the launch did not go without minor issues, and the network even had to go offline for a bit due to a glitch that was discovered soon after the launch. Still, EOS’ team managed to respond and fix the issue very quickly, and the coin did not have any large issues since. Despite the glitch, launching its own MainNet is still a big achievement, and EOS has a lot to be proud of.
When it comes to Cardano, this is a coin that has had a lot of success in terms of quality and stability. The coin isn’t highly-valued yet, but it definitely had the smallest price oscillations of the three. It is also among the newest cryptos, and while many other coins made a mistake of rushing things in order to be launched as soon as possible, Cardano did not. Its team consists of professionals and academics who know what they are doing and the best way to do things. This is why they were focused on developing ADA’s technology for months, rather than hurrying to put the coin out there.
As a result, Cardano has never had any big problems, nor did its price constantly rise and drop, as was the case with many other cryptos. It has been and still is, one of the most well-balanced cryptos in the market.
All of these cryptos have entered numerous partnerships over the last several months, and they continue to improve with new updates, projects, and products. They are all seen as good investments and coins with a bright future ahead of them. A large part of the crypto community expects that they would skyrocket as soon as the market allows it, which is why potential investors might want to consider purchasing them while they are still underpriced.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
