Most digital currency investors know that the crypto market can be quite ruthless at times. Mistakes are hardly tolerated, and never truly forgotten. Altcoins that make the wrong move are very likely to lose a lot of their support, which usually only leads further down the road until they get completely forgotten, and never see the light of day again.

However, this is not always the case, and there are still coins that managed to make a comeback even after everyone thought that they are gone for good. Today, we will check out our top 3 picks for such coins, and see how are they doing today.

1) Dogecoin (DOGE)

Dogecoin is an altcoin that needs no special introduction. If you follow news from the crypto world, chances are that you have already heard of the “joke” coin multiple times. Doge came to be as a meme, but it managed to survive some of the most difficult periods in crypto history. How it did it — nobody knows. However, it likely has something to do with one of the strongest and most supportive communities in the crypto space.

Dogecoin never had extremely high value, and even during the late 2017 price surge, it only ever reached the value of $0.016 per coin. However, after the market crashed in January, DOGE dropped to only a fraction of that value. Its lowest this year was $0.002311, and it was reported just before Dogecoin surprised the entire crypto world by making a comeback in mid-September. Since then, the coin has been relatively stable, with small drops during the last several days. However, it still managed to come back from the brink, which is why it definitely belongs on this list.

2) EOS

EOS is a coin that barely has anyone in the gray area — most people either love it or hate it, with nothing in between. For EOS, 2018 was an eventful year, during which this altcoin made a lot of progress. However, it was not an especially happy year due to some mistakes that it made.

The biggest issue regarding EOS this year happened just after its MainNet was launched in June. Not only was the launch delayed, but the network proved flawed just after the process was completed. So much so, in fact, that it needed repairs within the first few hours of its “life”. While this is nothing scary at first glance, it affected the way a lot of people think about EOS, and the confidence in the project was lost.

Still, the project itself has a huge potential. It has an ecosystem similar to that of Ethereum, but more simple and user-friendly. It is also a great place for developing dApps and creating smart contracts, which has made it popular with developers. In addition, EOS is fast, cheap, scalable, and stable. This is why the project managed to stay alive even after it made its mistakes, and why it is expected to explode during 2019.

3) Ripple/XRP

XRP may be the project that has suffered the most in 2018, at least when it comes to moves made against it. It certainly attracted a lot of attention, and it made numerous headlines due to controversies surrounding it.

Due to its nature, the fact that the company that created it owns the most of its funds, and numerous irregularities with bad explanations, XRP was a prime target of accusations, lawsuits, and negative press for a long time. Throughout the year, we kept reading about the company being sued, the coin being a scam, potential centralization, the fact that it cannot be mined, and a lot more.

All of this helped to create a very negative picture about XRP, and a lot of people believed that the coin won’t last for much longer. However, XRP managed to launch some of its long-awaited products, and they turned out to be working without any issues. As a result, XRP surged by as much as 20% twice in a span of a few months. On both occasions, it managed to briefly overtake Ethereum as the second largest coin by market cap. However, it was also brought back to the third spot both times, after only a few hours.

Still, this means that Ripple has a lot of potentials, and the company behind it has made effort to prove that the coin is truly decentralized after all. In addition, the situation regarding lawsuits got partially taken care of, and XRP has made quite a successful comeback.

In the end, there is a lot more that XRP needs to do in order to grow to its full potential. However, it is certainly not going anywhere, and it will likely stay high among the altcoins for a long time.

3 Altcoins That Are Outperforming Bitcoin and Will Likely Face Consequences

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…

TRON

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular crypto projects in the past year. The coin has received a lot of attention from the entire crypto community, and although the impressions may differ —  the fact is that TRX is one of the most talked-about coins, even today.

However, while the project managed to achieve a lot in less than a year — launch its MainNet, start multiple massive projects, launch dozens of dApps, hundreds of smart contracts, its own DEX, new token, and more — its price remains quite low. Undoubtedly, one of the reasons for this is its massive supply. TRX circulating supply is over 66 billion coins, while the total supply is over 99 billion.

Even so, the coin is believed to be massively undervalued, with its current price sitting at $0.028129, according to TradingView. This price, together with a market cap of $1.88 billion, pushed the coin out of the list of top 10 largest cryptocurrencies, and it currently sits at 11th spot. But, many believe that this is not a permanent position for TRON. In fact, its community believes that it is only a matter of time before TRON rises through the ranks, and its price hits $1. And, the way for the coin to achieve this is believed to be through Binance.

TRX

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in recent years. The project has achieved a tremendous amount of success in less than a year, and while the first birthday of its MainNet is approaching, TRON certainly continues to impress to this day.

With that said, its price is still noticeably low, and many would agree that the project is heavily undervalued. The low price even allowed other projects to push it out of the top 10 list, with TRX currently being the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, it is likely that TRON will not remain undervalued forever, and that its price might soon see a surge that its entire community has been waiting for, for a long time now.

Why TRX might see growth soon

As many undoubtedly know, TRON is a lot more than just a cryptocurrency. It has developed a massive ecosystem, which offers a development platform for coins, smart contracts, and dApps. It also acquired BitTorrent last year for its Project Atlas, which will allow torrent users to earn crypto through participation in content sharing.

For this purpose, it also launched BitTorrent (BTT) token, which saw its launch on January 28, 2019 on Binance Launchpad. This was dubbed the most successful ICO in history at the time, although several coins launched since then have broken its record.

In addition,…
