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.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

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…
