What would you buy when Electroneum (ETN) reaches one dollar?

Electroneum is a very interesting blockchain project that puts most of its emphasis on micropayments and mobility. Mobility is such a core value for Electroneum that its token (called ETN) is mined using an app you can install in your mobile phone or your tablet. It’s as simple as that, and it doesn’t take that much energy out of your battery. Actually, if you install it, you’ll barely notice the difference.

It’s a very young project that’s not getting that much attention. The token is worth $0.0164, and it’s ranked at 53rd by market capitalization. So, it’s not that impressive, right? Wrong. It holds a lot of promise which is why we are writing a full article about it.

Let’s say you start mining the ETN token and hold it for a while until it reaches $1.00USD (which is about 59 times higher than it is right now). What would you buy with it? And what can you do so that the token actually reaches that value?

Well, by the time it reaches that price, adoption will be widespread and you’ll be able to buy just about anything you’d like using the Electroneum (ETN) stored on your mobile phone. You want to pay for beer, cigarettes, or your groceries? You want to buy a house or a nice car? Chances are you’ll be able to do that two years from now.

Now the question is, how do we get there?

For ETN, as well as for any other cryptocurrency in the world, increase in value will come from mass adoption. It will be adoption and usefulness that will change the market. It will be the real economic value that will drive every token’s price instead of speculatory pressure, which is what’s been the main force behind the market up until today.

You can help with mass adoption, did you know that? How? Well, first of all, get some ETN. You don’t have to buy them; you just need to mine some in your tablet or your cell phone.

Once you get ahold of some ETN tokens, the next thing you do is, quite simply, to locate the places that are taking them as means of payment and spend them.

If you are willing to hold on to your Electroneum tokens (ETNs) for the next two years, we can’t criticize that, of course. By then they will be a lot more valuable than they are now, but by using the coins you’re making them useful, increasing demand, increasing trade volume and bringing attention to the token. In other words: spending your ETNs will make them more valuable in the long run.

Remember that this is not a cryptocurrency like Ripple’s XRP which was never supposed to be useful at the retail level (but they are now fixing that mistake). ETN is supposed to be useful for everyday payments from the beginning.

Granted, Electroneum is not accepted by that many businesses in the world yet. But the more it’s used, the more crypto-skeptics will read the writing on the wall and start accepting it as a means of payment.

So. Mine it. Then keep it if you want, or use it. But this is a project whose value will rely on their users, not in the exchange market.

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…
