It has been 10 full years since Bitcoin has gone live, and the coin has gone through a lot of development during that time. However, since some of its core issues still lack proper solutions, a lot of developers decided to try and provide alternatives for the first crypto, new coins that will address its largest problems early on.

These are known as altcoins, and they include every digital currency apart from Bitcoin itself, which inspired their creation. Today, there are over 2,100 altcoins, all of which are trying to compete with one another, as well as Bitcoin itself in one way or another.

However, none of them would have a strong presence, or even be here after a year as difficult as 2018, if they didn’t have strong, capable teams behind them. With that in mind, here are some of the strongest and most capable altcoin developer teams in the current crypto market.

1) Ethereum team

Ethereum is considered by many to be the second most important cryptocurrency in crypto history, even though it lost the second place on the list of largest coins to XRP. Ethereum is important because it shifted developers and investors’ focus from the coin to its blockchain. It opened an entirely new world of possibilities and inspired the creation of dApps and smart contracts.

Even now, Ethereum continues its development with new solutions, some of which were introduced in several hard forks only days ago. This was all possible thanks to its developers, which used to be represented by its co-founder, Vitalik Buterin. Even though Buterin recently decided to step down for the position of Ethereum team’s public face, he is still one of the top developers that the coin has, which still inspires trust in its future.

2) Cardano team

Cardano is another coin which is known for its very capable team, led by its creator, Charles Hoskinson. Hoskinson has had a long history with crypto, and he was there for the creation and early development of Ethereum, as well as Ethereum Classic. While he left both teams due to disagreements, he brought the knowledge regarding those two coins with him, which allowed him to create a new, potentially better coin — Cardano (ADA).

In a way, Cardano is one of the hopes for the future of crypto. It aims to resolve some of the most problematic issues regarding digital currencies, such as scalability and interoperability. Meanwhile, it has a team leader who contributed to the development of ETH, the main representative of the second generation of digital currencies. Because of this, many hope to see Cardano grow to be the representative of the third generation of crypto.

3) Binance Coin team

Many are likely already familiar with Binance Coin (BNB), as it is the native cryptocurrency of the world’s largest crypto exchange, Binance. The coin was created to be used on the exchange’s platform for paying different kinds of fees, and it has become quite popular, mostly because using it means getting a considerable discount.

The coin’s team is appreciated for several reasons, mostly due to their insight into what its users need. As such, they managed to create a cryptocurrency that addresses these needs, and BNB has generally made all the right moves since it was created.

4) Monero team

Finally, there is a team behind the privacy coin, Monero. Monero is considered to be one of the best privacy coins around, as privacy is one of the most desirable aspects of the internet. Those who use privacy coins can hide their transaction details, including identities and the amount of coin they are sending.

With that being said, the crypto space as we know it today was created with transparency in mind, which is why privacy coins are not tolerated in many of the largest exchanges. Regulators around the world also dislike them, as they are believed to be used for illegal activities. However, even with all the negativity surrounding privacy coins, Monero’s developers still managed to create a strong coin that does its job correctly, and still remains one of the most used coins today.

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…

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.
