Choosing a particular currency to invest in has very little to do with how well we consider a project or what we believe it stands for. It’s all about trying to figure out if the coin will grow in value as the platform associated with it will be adopted and achieve new partnerships and, as a consequence, the coin’s price will rise. So the main point to consider, if you want to become an investor in the crypto world, is to determine which asset has better chances to be profitable.

Ethereum (ETH) is the world’s most crucial cryptocurrency after Bitcoin in terms of market capitalization, and it’s had several successes recently. Tron (TRX) is not even a full-year-old yet (the crypto will turn one year old this July 1st), but it’s about to launch its very own platform, and has a very respected leader Justin Sun who is hugely admired and respected in the business world, not just among cryptocurrency fans.

Tron’s rise has been so impressive and so quick that it’s now being lauded as a candidate that soon will be playing with all the market’s bigger boys (Ethereum and Bitcoin included).

Ethereum (ETH) is the second most recognizable cryptocurrency, thanks to its recent successes and ranks behind Bitcoin only in market capitalization. TRON (TRX) is an emerging platform, soon to launch its Mainnet and lauded as a potential top contender in the market. Which one makes for a better investment?

Why TRON (TRX)?

TRON is becoming a star cryptocurrency very quickly. It’s been up and down, but behind its fluctuations, Tron’s founder and CEO Justin Sun’s resolution, to make it work and create a web that is decentralized and democratic remains rock solid. 

TRON’s coin is called Tronix (TRX). It has seriously tanked before, mainly due to the speculative influence that sometimes a massive influx of inexpert investors brings to the market.

There are two things about TRON that could make it the superior investment choice: it’s new Main Net’s potential, and Mr. Justin Sun’s proficiency at marketing and leadership

Tron’s new Main Net

The new Main Net, which is scheduled to come online this next May 31st will impart TRX and the network with a set of advantages that Mr. Sun has hailed as much better than Ethereum’s. 

While Ethereum fans were less than thrilled to hear that (not to say hostile), Mr. Sun usually delivers on promises and those new features could allow Tron to be adopted in mass very quickly.

The transaction fees will be 0.00001TRX per transaction (you don’t get any closer to zero than that). The network scalability will grow dramatically (delivering as many as ten thousand transactions per second). 

These features will be critical as Tron attempts to take over and decentralize the whole world’s entertainment industry which is one of the foundation’s core aims and values. If the gaming industry takes TRX seriously, it will become valuable sooner or later.

Effective marketing

Last April Tron did a thirty million dollar airdrop to the Ethereum community. This brought TRX into many new user’s awareness, and all these new users are now paying attention to the Main Net launch. 

The launch includes an incentive package for users and community members worth two billion dollars, no less. This will pull users and developers into the new infrastructure, create a broader community that will be very committed to the project and that will work hard to bring Tron into the mainstream through adoption.

Being a little speculative, there is a chance that TRON’s rise could make some of the world’s big tech companies pledge their support through adoption and other means. 

Alibaba is often cited as the leading candidate because Mr. Justin Sun is Mr. Jack Ma’s (Alibaba’s founder) protegé and former student. This would be delightful news for Tron.

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum is the crypto world’s darling right now. It’s more influential, known, and has both the market’s momentum and inertia going for it. Some observers even think it could leave Bitcoin behind at some point in terms of market capitalization. Some projections put ETH’s value at its peak by this year’s end.

DeVere Group’s CEO, Mr. Nigel Green, is quoted as saying,

“The price of Ethereum is predicted to increase significantly this year, and could hit $2,500 by the end of 2018 with a further increase by 2019 and 2020.”

While Ethereum remains the platform of choice for developing decentralized applications and launching ICOs, that’s because it’s been virtually unchallenged so far on that. 

But as five new cryptocurrencies will be releasing their own Main Nets this very year, Ethereum’s dominance in this regard could be short-lived or, at least, seriously challenged very soon.

But for the time being, new projects appear all the time on the platform. Gas, weather, space exploration, just to name a few. The new apps developed in the platform (and that end up working) will add value to its underlying currency.

Ethereum improves through upgrades

Ethereum’s dominance will stay around for a while yet. But it presents some scalability limitations and problems, and the relatively high fees it charges make developers feel attracted to other platforms. 

Mr. Vitalik Butrin and his team have perceived this problem and are working hard to improve the platform by releasing relevant upgrades. Sharding and Casper are some good examples. It’s possible that the new proof of stake algorithm will send Ethereum through the roof.

However, there is a very serious potential problem. Ethereum could be legally classified as a security, and that would make its value drop. While could only be a hiccup that will allow it to recover value in time, it would not play well in terms of investor confidence.

Last thoughts

Tron (TRX) position as one of the most successful (if not the most) emerging platforms and Mr. Justing Sun has been playing his cards very well, so it’s making it stand out and deliver on short-term goals. 

There’s a chance it will catapult this year, so this would be the right time to join. Ethereum is in a different situation; it just needs to come up with the correct upgrades to continue it’s unstoppable path to the top.

So this is something of a David vs. Goliath situation. If what you want is a cheap coin that holds lots of potentials, then TRON is the way to go. Its current price is cheap enough that buying TRX in bulk will not set you back significantly. If, on the other hand, you have enough money to get into Ethereum, the returns will be nothing to sneer at.

The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.

The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.

With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.

1) Bearish market to loosen its grip

The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…

2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.

Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)

Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.

One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…

Crypto projects have gone through several crucial periods of development, and while it is fascinating to watch their progress to maturity, a lot of investors are becoming impatient. During the first few years, they were barely known, only talked about in specific groups, among those developers and investors who had the luck to find out about them in the early days.

The next several years, altcoins started appearing, and the voice of cryptocurrency slowly started to spread. Then, there was a period of hype, when crypto exploded, and the entire world finally learned about this new technology that promised to change the world. Naturally, the overhype led to a market crash and price correction that we experienced last year, but the impact was made, and the world is still talking about them on a daily basis.

However, now is the time for cryptos to deliver on their promise, grow up, and start showing results. There are high expectations for many projects, but for various reasons, they have yet to deliver, and many are hoping that 2019 will be the year when they finally do it. Let’s see which 3 crypto projects really need to show results, and soon.

1) Ethereum (ETH)

Are you surprised to see Ethereum at the first spot? The project has been a top cryptocurrency for years, why would it be in danger now?…
