The crypto space of 2019 is seeing a significant improvement in performance, coin prices, and investors’ behavior and feelings regarding the crypto market. Numerous coins have surged to heights not seen since mid-2018, nullifying the mid-November market crash in the process. However, with that being said, there are still periods of price corrections, one of which is affecting the prices right now, at the time of writing.

Even so, the performance of some coins is more interesting than that of others, particularly Binance Coin (BNB). The coin is seeing difficulties, but when we look at the bigger picture, Binance Coin is one of the cryptocurrencies with the most potential for further growth, and maybe even market domination.

Binance Coin’s current troubles

Binance Coin has been one of the best performers in the entire crypto industry of 2019. Considering the fact that there are over 2,200 cryptos out there — this is quite an achievement. It was made possible due to the fact that BNB decoupled from Bitcoin (BTC), meaning that it stopped following Bitcoin’s lead. This made it the only cryptocurrency right now to have done this successfully.

However, BNB is currently not performing so well, and for an obvious reason, too. The reason, of course, is the recent hack of Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, and the company behind BNB. The recent hack had seen 7,000 BTC stolen from one of Binance’s hot wallets, which is a minor amount for the exchange, but a massive one for investors that are expected to trust the exchange with their funds.

While Binance addressed and handled the situation quickly and professionally, the fact that even the largest and most trusted exchange can suffer an incident like this has left many concerns. As a direct result, BNB’s rapid advancement was slightly affected.

BNB will go to the moon anyway

With that in mind, many still believe that BNB will skyrocket before long, and they are likely right. The coin is one of the most promising cryptocurrencies in years, and it has massive use cases in the Binance ecosystem.

As many are undoubtedly aware, Binance has recently launched its own blockchain, its own DEX, as well as several crypto-to-fiat exchanges, one in Europe, known as Binance Jersey, and one in Asia, known as Binance Singapore. Many more are expected to arrive, but the point is that Binance’s ecosystem is growing at a rapid pace.

One thing that all of these projects have in common is BNB, which is the native, universal cryptocurrency of the entire ecosystem. As such, everyone who uses Binance’s exchanges or platform will have to go through BNB. Not to mention Binance Launchpad, a platform for holding token sales, which only gives trusted coins in exchange for BNB.

In addition, BNB brings major discounts to those who use it, and the coin’s performance is very promising. With all of these use cases, great progress, and the world’s largest exchange at its back — BNB is bound to head for the stars. Binance’s hacking incident did come as a concerning development, that much is true.

However, the exchange is one of the most capable entities in the crypto world, and will undoubtedly take every precaution that something like that never happens again. Not only that, but its Binance DEX, its decentralized exchange, removes such risks entirely, thanks to the fact that DEXes do not require traders to deposit their coins. In other words, Binance’s issues can be resolved, but the coin’s usefulness will not fade away. Instead, it is far more likely that BNB will be one of the biggest, most used, and most influential coins in the entire crypto industry.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
