Since it came to existence, nearly a decade ago, cryptocurrency has been met with constant streams of negative-sayers declaring the technology is headed for obsolesce and predicting its death before it goes mainstream. Even so, ten years later, cryptocurrency is flourishing and showing signs of becoming stronger with each day that passes.

For instance, a single Bitcoin digital asset is worth four figures in US dollars, and it seems the coin has found some stability along its growing security. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for every virtual currency in the crypto market which now hosts more than fifteen hundred virtual assets and coins, each of which displays varying degrees of failures and success.

However, for all their potential and promise, virtual currencies still have a lot of ground to cover to break into the mainstream. At the moment, there are a few traders and financial institutions who are open and accept virtual payments.

But a majority of the bulk still settle for fiat currencies in their day-to-day activities. Critics argue that cryptocurrency might have been a flash in the pan but supporters, on the other hand, say the signs are clear even with the current shaky crypto environment, the sector will emerge stronger.

Top Promising Crypto Investments

In recent time, Ripple’s XRP, Cardano (ADA), and Tron (TRX) have been leading ahead of the crypto pack especially regarding adoption). But why are these virtual coins flourishing and leading? Let us have a look at what these virtual currencies have to offer, and what makes them a good crypto investment.

Ripple (XRP)

XRP (XRP) is a virtual currency that was created by Ripple Labs, a San Francisco based firm. Its mission and goal ever since its launch were to enter into agreements with as many financial institutions and banks as possible. True to its mission, XRP has been making the headlines almost every day. At the moment, Ripple has managed to enthusiastically enter into partnerships with financial institutions and banks that exceed more than 100 institutions.

A majority of their partnerships have been employed using xVia and xCurrent, but not Ripple’s xRapid product that transfers the XRP token. It is rumored that Ripple Labs is working on integrating the three Ripple products to give its users superior services on their platform. That will be huge for XRP.

Even though the XRP token has been discussed and even labeled as security by many analysists, Ripple Labs has already taken action to dispel these doubts and is making incredible efforts in separating XRP from the mother company, Ripple Labs.

Tron (Trx)

Led by its visionary leader, Justin Sun, Tron (TRX) is one of the significant virtual currencies in the crypto market that has managed to make major steps towards mainstream consumption and mass adoption. Tron is one of the cryptocurrencies that has recorded major positive advances throughout this year.

Apart from successfully launching a TestNet, Tron also launched its MainNet that is currently live and kicking. The cryptocurrency went through a token migration that saw its digital tokens leave Ethereum’s platform to settle on its blockchain.

In the year, Tron managed to launch the TVM or Tron Virtual Machine and purchase BitTorrent which has now become an integral aspect of Tron’s new Project Atlas. The number of partnerships TRX has managed to onboard are in accountable numbers and have resulted in the adoption of TRX as an official payment currency on partner websites.

Tron’s ultimate goal is to make the internet decentralized and to revolutionize the entertainment industry.

Cardano (ADA)

Although being relatively new in the crypto space, Cardano (ADA) has been showing consistent developments that earns it a spot on the top three promising cryptocurrencies in the market.

Developed by Charles Hoskinson, Cardano (ADA) is one of the most trustworthy and stable cryptos around – thanks to its decentralized nature, scalability, and professional team. Cardano (ADA) technology guarantees users enhanced speeds during transactions and rock-solid reliability that can be used even in casinos as well as mobile gaming industries.

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…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
