While investing in the largest cryptocurrencies is usually the safest method, it is understandable that sometimes, investors simply wish to take a risk. Those who feel such an urge usually go for an underdog, a coin that is not yet well-known. Of course, even these investors wish to invest in a coin that is worthy of it.

Because of that, we have prepared a list of 5 digital currencies that have a somewhat lower market cap. The criteria include a market cap lower than $100 million, as well as belief that these specific projects have a future bright future. With that being said, let’s see which coins to invest in.

1) Ravencoin (RVN)

Ravencoin is a crypto that holds the rank of 69 as per CoinMarketCap, with its current market cap being at $91.8 million. This is a young coin, but it already started attracting attention. In fact, a lot of investors and analysts believe that this is a sleeping giant. As such, it would be smart to invest in it while it is still low-priced.

Its code base is similar to Bitcoin’s, with some even claiming that it is Bitcoin’s. The project focuses on providing a stable and secure blockchain. Of course, it is still under development, and it has yet to show its true potential.

2) Nexo (NEXO)

Nexo is a coin that has a market cap of $90.03 million at the time of writing, and as such, it holds the rank of 71. The coin is relatively basic in concept, but it has a huge potential. It revolves around being cost-effective and user-friendly while it aims to revolutionize the lending process.

It plans to become a go-to coin for anyone looking to access funds urgently, as the process will be quick and simple. They had an interesting and unique ICO, and have kept their funding goals realistic and attractive to large and small investors alike.

3) Decentraland (MANA)

Next, we have Decentraland, which is quite an ambitious project that holds the rank of 73 as per CoinMarketCap. This project has a market cap of $86.87 million, and it aims to bring blockchain technology and virtual reality closer together. It will do this by creating a Metaverse which will serve as a base for an entirely new world of gaming and trading.

Its VR platform runs on Ethereum blockchain, and it offers users and developers to buy and sell plots of land, create new places and businesses, and conduct trades. All ownership of this land will be recorded on the blockchain, which is, as we know, completely resilient to all forms of data manipulation.

4) GoChain (GO)

GoChain is a coin that currently holds the position of 130th largest coin by market cap. It has a market cap of $40.67 million at the time of writing, but it is also a coin that many believe has a lot of potential for the future. This coin and its platform revolve around speed and cost-effectiveness. It is compatible with Ethereum, and its mainnet is said to be 100 times faster and requires less than 1% of the energy that is needed to actually mine ETH.

The project also aims to solve scalability issues without having to compromise things like privacy or security. It also introduces a new type of smart contracts that have resolved the flaws of regular smart contracts.

5) Mithril (MITH)

Mithril is a coin that has been interesting to investors for a while now. It holds the 65th place with a market cap of $99.88 million. It was developed on Ethereum’s ecosystem and its goal is to revolutionize the way social media impacts our everyday social lifestyle.

While it works with other social media platforms, it does come with a twist — it rewards its users for their contribution to the ecosystem. This means that content developers actually get paid for what they do via social mining. It is a fun way to earn coins, and it rewards effort, which is why Mithril attracted a lot of attention in 2018.

HODLing, or holding on to a certain asset or assets has always been an extremely useful investment strategy, even before cryptocurrencies were even imagined. Now, with the market being more uncertain than ever, many are wondering what is the right thing to do with the coins in their possession.

Of course, things change depending on the coin in question, but today, we are going to talk about why it is a good idea to hold on to your Stellar (XLM) in 2019.

Why You Should Hodl Stellar (XLM)

The crypto market is rich with hundreds, and even thousands of different projects at this point, and separating valuable ones from those that are destined to slowly fade away can be tricky. However, even the biggest skeptics believe that Stellar is a coin that is here to stay.

XLM was first launched in 2014, and for a long time now, it has been among the top 10 cryptos by market cap. It is an open-source, decentralized protocol that allows users to send fiat currencies by using cryptocurrency as a method of transport. In a lot of ways, it is very similar to XRP. However, the biggest difference is that Stellar aims to offer its services to regular people, while XRP is more interested in working with banks and financial institutions.

Nevertheless, sending money, especially when it comes to cross-border…

A lot of people quickly took notice of this coin, and many believe that it is among the coins of the future. Indeed, it has received a lot of attention, and many are interested in why that is, and why investing in it is a good idea. So, let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should invest in ETN in 2019.

1) It is fast

Speed and precision of any service have always been very important to people. This importance is even greater when making a profit depends on it. Electroneum developers were aware of this when they created it, and the coin is up to 5 times faster than Bitcoin. This means that ETN transactions can be confirmed much faster, which in turn reduces fees and waiting time.

Furthermore, there are also plans to create Electroneum Virtual Currency Exchange, which will allow the project to act as an exchange. However, the even…

Has Steemit seen its glory days run dry? There have been many rumors that the CEO Ned Scott has pushed the company to the blockchain focus that he forgot about Steem being a social media platform. Now, these are just things some of the former employees have been heard saying, but it is a rather interesting take as to what is going on. Give the following video a watch where I break down what is happening with Steem. I also give my thoughts on what may happen to other large ICOs and how we may see this trend continue as we have seen with ConsenSys laying off 10% of their workforce.

If the big name projects are starting to do this will it also have a trickle-down effect on other ICO’s which have no products and are running out of cash? I definitely think so, and I also see this negatively affecting Ethereum for the mid-term. The question many have been asking is just how long can the bottom 1800 projects last with the current market conditions? How many ICOs did not liquidate their Ethereum and now are stuck with 1/10th the cash flow or more in some cases, how will they pay to continue operations? What about the growing number of projects laying off employees…
