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) 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 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 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’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.
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.
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.

Reasons Why 2019 May Be A Great Year For Crypto
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…
3 Coins with the Largest Potential in 2019
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.
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…
Do or Die: 3 Crypto Projects that Really Need to Deliver Soon
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)
