Investing in coins that have already reached the peak of their potential will not get you very far since a lot of them can only go down from there. Instead, you should look for the coin that has yet to reach its full potential. Because of this, we have come up with three suggestions that have the biggest chance to become the next big thing in the crypto world, and those are XRP, TRON (TRX), and Cardano (ADA). Let us now see what each of these coins has to offer, and what is it that makes them a good investment.

1. XRP

XRP is a cryptocurrency that was developed by a company called Ripple Labs. Ever since its launch, XRP has been making headlines almost every day. Its goal was to enter partnerships with as many banks and financial institutions as possible, and it got to it very enthusiastically. These days, the number of banks and financial institutions that entered a partnership with this coin exceeds 70.

While banks are generally suspicious of cryptos, XRP has become one of the best choices for them. This is due to the fact that it has some of the best products that allow faster and cheaper cross-border payments to date. Sending international payments has become one of the biggest necessities of the modern world, and the problem is that most banks are still using the technology that is deemed almost primitive by today’s standards. This is where Ripple’s products like xRapid shine, and what makes it so popular.

Of course, XRP has also been one of the more stable coins in this year’s bear market. A lot of people speculated that the coin achieved this due to its centralized nature, since many claims that the company behind it is controlling it. In fact, Ripple has faced multiple lawsuits based on this belief. Still, the company continues to deny this, and they even made extra steps towards decentralization of Ripple quite recently.

While XRP value remains relatively low, especially considering all of its recent achievements, the coin continues to hold the place of the third biggest crypto by market cap, with its price being at $0.343030. However, the fact that it is wanted by all these banks and financial institutions definitely proves that XRP is bound to have a bright future.

2. TRON (TRX)

TRON is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies to date, and it made some major steps towards mass adoption and mainstream usage recently. It has one of the biggest and most supportive communities ever seen, and it is led by its founder, Justin Sun.

TRON has definitely been one of the cryptos with the most positive developments over the course of this year. It managed to successfully launch a TestNet, followed by a launch of its MainNet. It went through a token migration, where its coins left Ethereum’s network and settled in on TRON’s own blockchain. It also launched TRON Virtual Machine and managed to acquire BitTorrent, which has since become an important aspect of its new Project Atlas. It also entered more partnerships than we can count, and some of them even resulted in TRX becoming an official payment on the partner’s websites.

Most recent wins for TRON include the coin being listed on LINE’s exchange, BITBOX, as well as on Bitcoin Superstore, which allowed its holders to purchase goods from over 200,000 online shops.

TRON’s ultimate goal is to lead to the decentralization of the internet and to revolutionize the entertainment industry. After all that we have seen so far if anyone has a chance to achieve this, it is TRON. Despite all of this, TRON’s price continues to remain pretty low, with TRX’s current value being at $0.022464. However, it has seen a 6.78% increase in the last 24 hours, and things seem to be going well for it at the moment. It even managed to return to the 11th position on the list of the largest cryptos by market cap, after it slipped to the 13th place a few days ago.

3. Cardano (ADA)

Finally, we have Cardano. This is a relatively young coin, but it managed to make a lot of positive development over the course of this year. It was created by Charles Hoskinson, who is also a founder of IOHK. Hoskinson is also known to be one of the co-founders of Ethereum. Recently, in one of his interviews, he explained that he joined Ethereum Classic after a hard fork due to disagreement with the rest of Ethereum’s team. After a while, he decided to gather up all of his knowledge of cryptos, and launch the coin that would be better than ETH as well as ETC.

The new coin was to tackle issues that older coins were struggling with, and so Cardano came to be. When it comes to Cardano, this is a coin where the team is one of its biggest and most important aspects. Hoskinson himself is a very experienced developer, and he made a team of others like him. Because of this, Cardano was created by professionals, who knew what they were doing, and who developed the coin with the best and most modern technologies.

Hoskinson’s work on Cardano has taken time, but only because he and his team did not want to rush things. Instead, they concentrated on its technology. Because of this, Cardano is one of the most stable and trustworthy coins around. It is also decentralized, and the team is bringing new updates all the time. Hoskinson even stated recently that he hopes to turn Cardano into the first trillion dollar crypto.

He hopes for a global adoption of the coin, which is expected to follow after the launch of Cardano’s own MainNet. Additionally, ADA also has a very strong community that continues to grow on a daily basis. The coin has inspired a lot of trusts, and it currently holds the place among the top 10 cryptos by market cap, with the rank of 9. Like the other entries, its price is nothing spectacular as of yet, being only $0.104192. However, Cardano is definitely one of the coins with the brightest future ahead of it, and its constant progress is the biggest proof of this.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
