Anyone following up with the most recent news and updates on digital currencies, which became extremely popular over the course of the last year, was able to see a significant rise in the value of over 100 of different coins in December.

However, if you stuck around to see what’s next, you were also able to see the sudden drop of values of many of those same coins that first experienced a massive increase.

While some digital currencies dropped for only a couple of percents ranging from harmless -0.7% to 3% of a decline, some cryptocurrencies like NXT have suffered a horrifying decline.

The Sudden Drop

December 27th and December 28th was all about breaking it or making it for many digital currencies. That is how we’ve seen even the big boys falling out of the game with Bitcoin’s example of having been reaching the peak of its glory and going to 22,000$ per one coin, then all of a sudden dropping to 10,000$ per one coin in just the last couple of days of December.

The 28th was mainly rough on even those coins that were thought to be stable, although many of the currencies that have suffered the drop only experienced a minor decrease ranging from -0.7% to -7%.

However, NXT surprised everyone when its percentage of drop in value reached -48.57%, which is the most significant downfall this currency has ever had.

That is how NXT lost almost 50% of its value, trading this currency at 1.26$ then dropping in the next 24 hours at just 0.41$ per one coin. People who had managed to sell before the price fell were probably the trigger factor for having the price drop so low.

What often happens with the market when some shares, or digital currencies in this matter, have a sudden increase in value many traders are willing to sell to make a profit. That happened with different coins during the past 30 days, at the same time the last month of the current year that experienced a benevolent rise in value.

Many people wanted to sell these currencies in exchange for “real money” instead of using the coins and increasing interest. This might have led to having the value of sudden coins suddenly drop as low as for -50%.

Whatever the reason may be, losing interest and decreased attention for NXT or something else, as it is at the current moment, investing in NXT might not look as promising as it was before.

However, although NXT’s value dropped for almost 50%, the total net worth of this currency still makes up for 649.3 million dollars, which indicates that this is not the last we’ve seen of this cryptocurrency.

An Online Scandal

You might remember John McAfee and his twitter recommendations on some digital currencies he found very interesting. He was later accused of setting up the market for his own personal gain as the value of the mentioned cryptocurrency significantly jumped after issuing recommendations via his Twitter handle.

The tweet was posted on his official Twitter account which caused the public to start doubting in his advice and see through it as a scam for gaining personal profit.

That is how NXT was mentioned in one of John McAfee’s tweets only a day ago. Apparently, someone was able to break through Twitter’s security and hack John McAfee’s account, posting recommendations for buying certain digital currencies. Among the “honorable” mentions, McAfee’s followers were able to see NXT as well.

The problem was that all of the mentioned currencies, posted by an anonymous hacker who managed to break through the password and take over McAfee’s account for a while, were all dropping at the moment.

And what is the most interesting thing about this online scandal is that for a moment there, many people didn’t want to waste their time, so they took John McAfee’s advice and started to invest in the mentioned currencies, altogether with NXT. All of these coins in a matter of hours started to experience unpredictable increases. That didn’t last for too long as the price went down soon afterwards.

John McAfee, given his Twitter account back, explained that the tweets were not originally posted by himself and that his account was hacked, although it was now recovered.

This is just a reminder of how a person, who is considered to have a certain authority when it comes to analyzing digital currency market, can affect general opinion and later actions of different investors.

What will happen to NXT?

Although NXT experienced a horrifying drop in value in the past 24 hours, this digital coin is still showing promising opportunities to those who choose to stick with it although its drop almost reached -50% during the past day, dropping from over 2 dollars per coin to only 0.41$ per one unit. Many people are now curious to find out more about the future of this coin, especially those who invested in this cryptocurrency.

As financial insiders predict bright future for many digital currencies that have managed to reach the list of at least top 100 digital currencies of 2017, the next year should be even more fruitful for more and more accepted “new age money”, so don’t lose your hope just yet as the next year might be THE year for NXT.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

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.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
