Cardano is a very peculiar blockchain project. It lacks the hype of Bitcoin, Tron or Ripple, just to name a few but it’s managed to acquire an unmatched reputation for quality, transparency, and seriousness.

One of the differences between Cardano and every other cryptocurrency is the emphasis it puts into following scientific principles and peer-reviewed research.

They keep to those principles by working closely with many cryptography researchers in the academic sector and by making sure that they do not privilege sheer marketing as its chief strategy, but academic announcements and publications that guarantee the project’s reliability and innovation.

That all has made Cardano’s researches ambassadors of sorts from the cryptosphere to the academic world which, in turn, has given reason to many academics to pay more attention to the cryptocurrency market and take it as an earnest endeavor.

That difference in core values has practical consequences. The Cardano community never rushes. Nothing is launched or released until it’s been thoroughly tested and known to work correctly. That’s how Cardano has managed to build an unparalleled reputation for reliability. There’s never been a major scandal or controversy involving Cardano, which is very rare in the cryptocurrency market.

It’s also important to know that Cardano is not all about the project’s currency (called ADA) but it’s a full decentralized operating system designed to run financial and decentralized apps.

While this is not unique (that’s the case of Tron, or EOS, for instance), the project has shown its scientific credentials by designing a blockchain from scratch. Its very innovative “Proof of stake” consensus protocol could be nothing short of revolutionary if it’s implemented successfully and many observers in both the academic and crypto market fields are waiting eagerly to find out if it will deliver on its promises.

So if Cardano is such an exciting project, why is ADA not performing that well? Because the bear came to visit the crypto world las January and it hasn’t left. Every digital asset has had a hard time all year long, and Cardano hasn’t been the exception. 

It reached its peak level last January (1.30 USD, fifth largest coin by marketing capitalization). Since then it’s been going down, and it currently trades at around 0.12985 USD (which brought it down to the eight place by market cap). This is apparently a considerable drop. But it’s also a great opportunity.

Metaps Plus is a huge mobile payments platform based in Korea. They recently announced they would include ADA as a means for payment.

This new partnership is crucial because it shows the credibility Cardano has managed to build outside the cryptosphere and because South Korea is one of the world’s most essential and enthusiastic countries when it comes to digital assets.

And this is just one such partnership; there is no reason to believe that many others are not on the way but, as stated before, this is an organization that takes its time to do things.

Despite the coin’s performance, neutral observers and experts are very confident in this project. Some predictions are as high as 10.00 USD per token, but they seem a little hyped and the arguments they give are not always very persuasive.

That being said, a new bullish run will come to the market sooner or later. Taking into account that ADA was as high as 1.30 only a few months ago, when this happens, the token will appreciate for sure and based on previous bullish runs it would be entirely reasonable to expect it to reach 2.50 USD.

So this is a time of opportunity if you like Cardano. At thirteen cents you could make a twentyfold profit when the prices start picking up again. It is a risk, of course, but if you know the project, the markets and you do your homework before you jump in, then Cardano’s ADA is one of the best opportunities in the current market precisely because it’s so incredibly cheap right now.

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?…
