Choosing a cryptocurrency for investing is a challenge, especially if you are not a very seasoned investor. There are so many different platforms and coins; each has different features so picking one correctly just gets harder as you dig in. You can read about each coin’s features but how can you tell which ones will do well and which are the ones that are just hot air?

Let me give you two hints. Verge (XVG) and Nem (XEM) have already proven they are up to the job. They are both reliable and solid cryptocurrencies, and their future just looks excellent. Let me tell you why.

NEM (XEM)

NEM (XEM) is among the most recent alt-coins, but it already exhibits the potential to take on the market’s legends such as Ethereum and Bitcoin. NEM is a blockchain that allows for smart assets through its platform, which was designed with corporate users in mind.

What’s NEM’s edge?

Most of the current cryptocurrencies go for proof of work (the algorithm Bitcoin made famous) or for the proof of stake algorithm (and variations). NEM is different it uses the proof of importance consensus algorithm, which is unique as protocol goes and ensures that the network’s safety is safeguarded.

That’s not all. The networks’ characteristic EigenTrust++, its reputation system, the Multisig accounts and encrypted messaging service are also hallmarks. These features secure the network so it can run dApps safely, and in a trustworthy way that also allows for smart contracts.

Sound scalable network

Among the strengths of the NEM’x blockchain, is the ability to scale. The platform was designed from the ground up so it would be as highly scalable as possible. 

That’s why this network can manage as many as three thousand transactions per second. This becomes an essential network feature as more and more apps work over the very same network. Scaling is not a problem for NEM but and advantage which is the opposite of what’s been happening to Ethereum.

Harvesting

Harvesting is another of XEM’s advantages. It simulates investors to come into the project. Let’s say an investor is interested in harvesting new blocks. He would only need to have 10000 XEM tokens. 

That amount will allow the user to join in the network’s harvest of new blocks and collect fees. This way new investors are encouraged to both hold the XEM currency and increase the network’s activity.

Partnerships

Partnerships play an essential role in any and all crypto coins. It prompts new users to adopt them and grants them credibility. 

NEM has done very well in this regard, closing deals with some very high profile companies around the world. They’ve sealed over forty partnerships that include names such as KChain, Blockchain Global, Paytomat and Tech Bureau Corp.

Every single one of this partnerships is making XEM available to the public instead of leaving it stored in digital vaults. 

The Xhai Studios is among these partnerships, and it could make XEM use grow exponentially in the video gaming and mobile video industry. If it sticks and works, it will amazingly increase NEM’s credibility.

Verge (XVG)

Verge’s growth is about to become one of the best ever to be seen in the crypto world. It has all to do with its unique platform but also with the controversial and very misunderstood partnership Verge managed to secure in mid-April.

What’s Verge’s edge?

Its features concerning privacy and anonymity are just unrivaled by any other platform until now. Some competitors are not ready to admit it, but Verge is just the best when it comes to this characteristics. This matters a great deal for users (current and new).

As the blockchain tech moves forward, people want anonymity, security, and privacy, and Verge offers exactly that. It does that by combining TOR, I2P and the Wraith Protocol. This feature is attractive to users and Verge has been getting it just right as it gives everyone full control over their own privacy.

Stable prices

The high volatility shown in the past by Bitcoin and Ethereum has kept many potential investors away from cryptocurrencies. While fluctuations are unavoidable for sure, XVG has been very stable as it has not shown the wild swings so many other alt-coins have had. 

It is a factor that new investors take into account when they search for a coin they can use for investments. Verge has been doing very well in this regard and chances are it will keep growing and gain more acceptance.

Verge keeps payment verification simple

Verge has been called the “next Bitcoin” because transacting in Verge’s token is incredibly swift. This is because of their SPV (Simple Payment Verification) protocol which makes it easy to adopt and a lot more usable, even than Bitcoin. It’s not merely fast; it’s also very cheap.

Partnerships

Verge’s recent partnerships are among the factors that make it more viable right now. Their association with the world’s top adult entertainment platform has shown the world this technology is available for every day use and it’s been backed up by many other parties. 

After that partnership, many others have followed suit and it the coin is about to create a debit card along with TokenPay. Verge is becoming so widely accepted in such a short time that it can only mean it has a very interesting future ahead.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

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.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
