If you like to keep updated with cryptocurrency news, you already know that everything everybody has been writing about for the past seven months is the current bearish market. It’s slow, most coins are losing value, and there is no end in sight. But is a long bearish run such a bad thing?

I don’t think so. If you’re going to make any money out of cryptocurrencies (assuming you’re not mining any or own a bank) it will be by buying low and selling high, and nothing brings prices lower than bearish markets.

In short: the current market affords us all the opportunity to buy as many cheap tokens as possible, and hold them until the next bull comes. This takes a bit of research, discipline, and patience but if you have those qualities, you’ll find a way to make today’s market work for you, say, a year from now. I show you five coins that could be the way to go.

Stratis

The Stratis blockchain project and its token (STRAT) have a very low profile within the cryptosphere, yet, it’s a coin with immense potential and fantastic room to grow. It’s currently trading at 1.65 USD, but not too long ago it reached heights of 20.89 USD. The project’s and asset’s lack of fame make it an especially good opportunity because you can find a treasure that nobody else is looking for.

It’s a robust project that aims to make blockchain adoption as painless as possible for both developers and partners, and it’s currently working on making its blockchain available in mobile devices. Bitcoin has shown us many times over that fame does not equate performance, so don’t make the mistake of ignoring Stratis just because it’s not in the news all the time.

Ripple’s XRP

It was the best coin last year, and this year, it’s cheap (around 0.35 USD now after the latest bear run). Ripple is probably the most finely focused blockchain project in the world, and it’s recruited a lot of big players in the global financial industry to go along with it. And now, it’s also a consumer currency that can be used by retail users. When the market leaves behind its current depression, XRP will be one of the coins that will lead the charge.

Stellar Lumens’ XLM

Backed by IBM, Stellar has been gathering a vast amount of new partners that will make XLM a currency that is useful for all kinds of institutions and persons. It was the only token that grew in price during last month, but it’s still very cheap right now (20 cents at the time of press). Stellar is Ripple’s direct competitor, which is hardly surprising as both projects were founded by Jed McCaleb. It’s promising, it’s growing, it has real-life value, and it’s undervalued. It’s an excellent opportunity.

Cardano’s ADA

Cardano is one of the world’s respected blockchains, and ADA is one of the best performing tokens because of the reputation they have achieved through an adamant commitment to scientific principles and peer-reviewed research. In this project, the emphasis is on reliability and innovation.

Nothing is ever rushed, and any Cardano technology is deployed only when it works perfectly. It’s been involved in zero scandals. And it’s also cheap. The main reason to trust Cardano and ADA is, quite simply, that they will certainly won’t slip, whatever comes.

DigiByte

You’ve probably not read a lot about DigiByte. Well, let’s start from the beginning: it costs less than three cents right now which gives you the chance to buy a lot of tokens with very little money, that in itself, is worth considering. It’s been a very innovative project, if low-profile, and it presents its technology as faster, more secure, than any other.

It’s been around for four years already, and it’s managed not just to survive but to be a stable presence and value in the cryptosphere. Like in the Stratis case, the lack of bells and whistles shouldn’t deter anybody from considering this asset seriously.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

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.

In the past few…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?

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,…
