2018 is nearly over, and the crypto market situation is only slightly better these days than it was in the previous months. Most cryptos are seeing their lowest points in the last year, or even longer. With a situation like that, it is of a small surprise that a lot of investors are having an inner debate about whether or not to cut their losses and abandon the space.
While a lot of smaller cryptocurrencies might suffer irreparable damage due to these conditions, some of the bigger hits like Cardano (ADA) are still worth holding onto. Let’s see why Cardano, in particular, is a cryptocurrency still worth HODLing.
Why you should hold on to your ADA coins
Cardano is currently the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, being just above IOTA (MIOTA) and below TRON (TRX), which has recently surpassed it. Its current price is at $0.037356 per coin, and it has a market cap of $968.53 million.
It is the first crypto that has a market cap under $1 billion, although this is something that can easily change at any time. Many often compare Cardano’s marketing strategy to that of TRON, stating that ADA has near-zero fluff, while TRX — and especially its founder, Justin Sun — are often criticized for causing unnecessary hype.
Cardano does not use such methods, as the coin allows its actions to speak. It was created by Charles Hoskinson, who has previously worked on the development of several hit projects, including Ethereum itself. Hoskinson has witnessed the development of multiple coins and has gathered the necessary insight into their flaws.
Because of that, he and his development team took special care while developing Cardano, focusing on quality instead of rushing things. Furthermore, the development team itself consists of professionals and academics, familiar with how a cryptocurrency should operate in the best possible way.
Cardano has also announced several projects which are expected to improve the coin further, such as resolving scalability issues. The main goal here is to provide simple and cheap financial solutions for billions of people around the world, who are considered underbanked. The most promising solution appears to include the introduction of parallel chains and the concept of sharding. If these goals are achieved, Cardano will receive a lot more attention, which will positively impact its price, and potentially make it the representative of the third generation of crypto.
In addition, the coin has appeared on Coinbase’s list of potential listing candidates. If the exchange decides to add ADA to its limited list, it will certainly impact Cardano’s position, as the coin will experience even more usage. Furthermore, ADA is already a tradeable asset on many well-known and trusted platforms, such as HitBTC, UPbit, Huobi, eToro, Bithumb, and it is also expected to arrive at Cryptopia.
It should also be noted that Cardano is a coin with a relatively stable, if low, price. It has experienced less volatility than most cryptocurrencies that are not categorized as stablecoins. One of the reasons for its low price may be its large circulating supply, which currently includes nearly 26 billion coins, as well as its total supply of 31.1 billion units.
For all of these reasons, and more, a lot of experts expect Cardano to be one of the coins that will survive the altcoin apocalypse, both now and in the future. And, when the storm blows over, the remaining coins will find themselves in more favorable conditions, which will allow them to grow and develop properly.

Lite.IM Dethrones Facebook After Integrating Crypto Wallet With Popular Messaging Platforms
With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading. Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term. In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook. That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM
Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms. And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.
Lite.IM is a crypto wallet that has been integrated with several of the most popular messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Telegram. In addition, users in the U.S. and Canada can also exchange and manage crypto balances through SMS. Although not all cryptocurrencies are available, the team has selected four of the most popular currencies which include Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), and the native currency of Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms. But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks. There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…
Will 2019 be the Year of TRON (TRX)?
While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.
Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.
TRON in 2018
2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.
The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.
The project was quickly…
