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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
