The market has been slow for months now, and while we all know it will recover and take off, we have no idea when that will happen. So in the meantime let’s have a look at five best cryptocurrencies that, because of their particular features, could do well this month while the rest of the market keeps losing value.

Four of these coins have one thing in common: Coinbase. Our first four picks are all either listed or considered for listing at Coinbase and that fact alone, because of the vast user base that platform boasts and the incredible amount of demand it creates for currencies, is enough to take them seriously this August.

Bitcoin

There are 1500+ cryptocurrencies active in the world today, and many of them are incredibly exciting. Bitcoin is not only the coin that made the cryptosphere happen. 

It also is the market’s leader. When Bitcoin does well, every other currency does well, and when Bitcoin does poorly, every other token follows suit (as you can see exactly that happening right now). If the market shows any signs of recovery, it probably will start with Bitcoin. Additionally, it happens that Bitcoin is currently undervalued so even in a bearish market, it’s expected to recover at least until a point.

Stellar Lumens’ XLM

This currency has secured many important partnerships over the last couple of weeks, its transference rate is increasing a lot, tariffs are low, IBM backs it, and it’s useful as a bridge to settle international payments as it is as a retail token for consumers. 

That kind of versatility guarantees uses and increases demand. It was founded, and it’s still led by Jed McCaleb who also founded Ripple (XRP) and has shown his competence at managing blockchain projects. If that’s not enough to persuade you, XLM was the only coin that increased in value during July.

Cardano’s ADA

This is among the most serious projects in the crypto world. This month will see essential and innovative updates in big chunks of Cardano’s network that will increase performance, reliability and other features. Also, Cardano works very hard in ADA’s adoption.

Yes I, know, you probably had not noticed that at all. That’s because Cardano is not trying to get ADA adopted in Europe, or the Americas but in Africa and Asia because the lack of regulation and bad quality in local financial services make of those regions of the world places in which penetration can be quicker and more in-depth and more useful than anywhere else in the world. 

It’s also worth it to keep in mind that Cardano’s current success has had nothing to do with marketing because they have not done any. Imagine what will happen when they do start their marketing campaign which is scheduled to begin soon.

Ethereum Classic

The main thing about this one is that it’s scheduled to go live on Coinbase Pro this week (as I write this, as a matter of fact) and that Robinhood now supports it. Those two new demand sources are enough to pump any coin up, so there’s not much more to say.

Vchain

Surprised? Vchain is a very young, and relatively low profile, blockchain project that already has some impressive triumphs in its belt. Their killer app is for streamlining airport check-ins in a way that, by the magic of cryptography, the reputation of every passenger’s papers is checked against a distributed database without actually revealing any personal information at all. Also, this project awards hodlers with new tokens just for hodling so, even if it doesn’t rise in price, you’ll end up with a few new tokens.

Foreigners who are residing in Singapore and looking for financing could do so in the form of a payday loan.

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.
