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.

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.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
