My first acquaintance with cryptocurrencies was thanks to Steem and its social media platform Steemit. That was back when the registration there was free and we were just approaching the crazy winter of 2017. I started out an own blog on that platform and after some time, earned a good amount of Steem Dollars, the Steemit native currency, for just posting interesting content and getting upvotes. Unfortunately, Steemit has been stagnating for a long period of time, which translated to the price of Steem that is currently a mere $0.1 per coin.
Binance Coin is the only altcoin worthy of attention this year, perhaps along with Litecoin. Changpeng Zhao and his team did a tremendous job of developing and expanding the Binance ecosystem, which had a positive effect on the price of BNB throughout this spring/summer. Frankly speaking, I am so glad that I had a nice stash of BNB on the exchange. It gave me decent profits even without trading, I just held it and watched the price hitting the all-time high. Gonna continue holding BNB, I think it will double in value over the next few months.
Litecoin has been my second favorite cryptocurrency, after Bitcoin of course, for quite a long time. It has great fundamentals; Litecoin Foundation landed some sweet sponsorship and partner deals this year with various sports organizations, and it has just passed the halving. We already witnessed the first LTC halving. Back then, the price took some time to consolidate and then simply exploded to $300+. It is my firm belief that history will repeat itself. Watch out for $200 per LTC by the end of the year.
I gotta say that I absolutely love Basic Attention Token and the team that stands behind it. The Brave Browser is just great: no annoying ads, everything works much faster, and, most importantly, I get BAT for watching targeted ads at my own discretion and the creator tips, the tips in BAT which the visitors of my website send me via Brave. With such a wonderful product at hand, BAT is guaranteed a place in the Top 10 crypto, and at least the price of $1 per BAT.
This Aurora coin is definitely the scalper's dream. I mean, it's price charts look like a cardiac waveform even on the hourly time frame. Too bad, though, that AOA is being traded on a very limited number of exchanges, with KuCoin being probably the most famous of them. Certainly, I wouldn't hold this coin for a prolonged period of time, I don't think that it has the necessary fundamentals to make it to the top, but it's all right to trade with.
Ah, the usual Load the Tether FUD. We experience Tether FUD every single time the market looks bullish, so it comes as no great surprise that suddenly Bitfinex is having troubles with the NY AG. It’s easy when these events happen, you just sell, grab coins at a cheaper price, and then ride them back up- all thanks to Tether. USDT works, and it’s verifiably backed by USD. Banks are not 100% banked by assets, so why should USDT be? It’s just the usual market FUD that’s meant to shake out weak hands.
Ethereum has been bouncing between $160-$170 for days. This zone has shown that’s its a strong point for accumulation, and therefore we are likely to see a large bounce from this point. Between BTC ratio and USD value, ETH is poised for a huge move in the green as it shows a direct similarity to that of BTCs 3k bottom and the 2016-2017 fractal pattern before ETHs massive bullrun. It’s safe to say that ETH is an obvious move at this point.
I still don’t understand how BSV is even on CMC. It got delisted from every major exchange and fell in price immediately be 50%. It’s shocking that people are still trading this outright scam coin by a crypto maniac. But that goes to show the immaturity of the overall market. It’s important to take note of these events to not fall for them in the future. BSV will eventually disappear into the depths of CMC, but it will take with it the money of many inexperienced and gullible traders.
The only thing propping Dash up at the moment is it's one of the more recognized cryptos out there. It’s so far from its ATH that at this point it seems nearly unobtainable. Although certain coins reached such high prices, it’s important to remember if these projects hold any relevance anymore. DASH is a great example of a project that doesn’t seem to have any loyal followers and doesn’t seem like a project that is undergoing an accumulation phase. It’ll rise in price if the entire market turns bullish, but it won’t decouple from the rest of the market to surprise us with a sudden 10x.
Sad to say it, but all indicators are pointing sideways for NEO. It had such a massive run up in the AntShare days, but those days are long gone, and anyone who profited off of such a big move has already cashed out and moved on to another coin. There hasn’t been an important conference oor announcement in who knows how long, but what is known is that this project doesn’t look like a long term hold or short term trade. It looks overall stagnant, and I feel sorry for anyone still holding onto this coin.
XEM is at the point of boom or bust. It needs to surprise everyone with a real rush of investors or it will be eternally forgotten. XEM never had anything to offer to the blockchain community, and it still doesn’t. Until they can find some way to dig themselves out of their own grave, any smart trader isn’t going to touch it. This could work as a short term trade, but even that is dicey since XEM already went bankrupt not too long ago. There are those that think just because a coin went down significantly in value that it will miraculously jump back up in price, and so far, it doesn’t look like that’s the case with XEM.
I used to be bullish on ONT, and everytime it hit a certain fiat value I’d always buy and sell once I reached a fast 5-10% profit. This was like a money printing machine before, but ever since NEO went down the drain it followed suit. I think ONT has more potential than even NEO, but at the moment people are steering clear of any Chinese based blockchain project. It’s seems the reason that this is because China is very unfriendly to crypto projects, yet the State spends billions of dollars on research. It seems that China is interested in the tech, but not in the crypto currencies.
Commenting to the person below. Here’s your pump. A direct use case and partnership with Jaguar/Landrover. I was skeptical of IOTA at first, but this announcement really seals the deal. Jaguar/LandRover said specifically that they would reward courteous drivers with IOTA within the onboard wallet system. This is a huge win for crypto adoption overall, but even bigger for IOTA and IOTA holders. It also drives up the awareness of other IoT blockchain companies, which means they will increase in value as this new trend sparks. It’s important to find a competitor of IOTA for a hedge in volatile moments like this.
BNB keeps going because CZ and company understand how to run a profitable business. They originally introduced the idea of IEOs, and these have taken off with such wide success that every exchange currently has their own IEO platform. It seems that every IEO these days is having huge numbers, from 2x to 10x+. BNB was also the first to introduce the idea of requiring participants to hold a certain amount of BNB to enter lotteries, which has drastically increased the price. As IEOs remain profitable, BNBs value will continue to rise as people require more BNB to have more chances to participate in lotteries.
Most people are skeptical of BCH, but if you look at the charts, BCH has outperformed BTC along with every asset above it on CMC. So far in the last week, BCH has pulled in 10%, whereas BTC has grown 9%. Although these are very close, it shows that BCH is a strong hedge in times of uncertainty and exuberance with BTC. There’s no better time than now to hedge against BTC, and the only option is with BCH.
It’s not the time to buy EOS. There is too much at stake in other projects such as ETH, and with ETH about to announce Staking code in over a month, EOS may become vastly irrelevant. EOS is a solid trade during large leg downs that we’ve seen over and over this past month, but it’s not a long term hold until it shows actual substance.
I hate to say it, but I think Cardano isn’t going anywhere. Ever since the ADA summit, i think investors are very disappointed with not only the zero news, but lack of professionalism. At the end of the summit, Charles even committed animal abuse with the box full of butterflies. I don’t think any CEO on this planet would ever try to pull such a ridiculous stunt, and it lost a lot of credibility for the project. ADA will fall out of the top ten as the market continues to decide who stays and who must go.
Tezzies are great to stake, but buying at these prices is crazy. We already saw a huge dump, and more to come according to the charts. There’s no real reason to hold XTZ unless you’re staking, and even at that, the rewards are minimal. I’m not trying to FUD the project, but it seems unlikely that XTZ will see another bull market from its unused platform. There isn’t anyone who actually uses it for anything, whether it be companies or individuals. If anyone can point me to a company that’s building their platform on top of Tezos then please enlighten me. Until then, I stand by the fact that XTZ has no intrinsic value.
LTC is always perched in an uncertain position. It may be because crypto enthusiasts are unsure if LTC has lasting power in the crypto market, but it either gets weak support or strong buying action. Lately it’s been enjoying strong buying action, but it may be due to its use as a BTC hedge. The last time we saw this much interest in LTC, it rose from $20 to over $300. It will be interesting where this current trend lands LTC. For those that bought in at its 2018 lows, they’re enjoying well over 2x valuation, which has significantly outperformed both BTC and ETH.
XRP is has been quiet lately, and not in terms of announcements or partnerships, but in the sense that traders are overlooking it for other options. At the moment we can expect XRP to continue its decline since there is no real reason to hold onto its asset. There will be a time to re-accumulate XRP in the near future, but not right now. Even alts like XLM - which is a hedge for XRP, is on the way down as well. Most large TA groups are calling for a significant drop in value for XRP as BTC continues its bullish movement.
BTC is holding above 5600 which is a bullish sign. All indicators are pointing to a further push to levels such as 6k-7k. It’s more than likely we see these levels because many have accumulated within the 5k range ever since we bounced off the 3k low. It’s important to remember that the halvening is now less than a year away, and historically BTC has shown increased valuation to the lead up. We’ve only seen two halvenings in the past, and this will be BTCs most significant milestone now that it has a global awareness.
TRX created this environment of pump armies, and now they’re feeling the effects of the other side of the coin. All of those who were convinced that TRX would make valuable transactions and overtake ETH are severely disappointed with the overall performance. Justin Sun has been busy making outlandish claims on twitter and harassing Vitalik at events, but no longer do his stunts impress his followers. All TA shows that TRX has a long way to down before it finds any semblance of a bottom. It will be interesting to see how justin Sun makes up for this huge loss. ETH has the biggest developer community behind it whereas TRX only has a shill army lead by Justin Sun.
XLM looks like it’s about to get flushed down the toilet. According to trustworthy TA, XLM is on track to visit 6 cents and below. It’s currently fluctuating between 9-11 cents, so it can potentially see another 50% devaluation. Although the tech is sound for the project, the technicals are looking very bearish for XLM. XLM saw a very moderate crypto winter, where most other projects saw significant losses. Instead, XLM rode it out like a champ. It looks like XLM, along with XRP, are paying the price as other coins look bullish.
QTUM was poised for greatness, but what happened? It’s surprising how a coin can be relevant one day and forgotten the next. This is common in many things in life, but it happens rapidly in the crypto eco-system. QTUM does have a working blockchain that we’re able to stake on with ease, but it just hasn’t caught any attention. Attention is what’s needed for projects to become and remain successful. Besides success, trader action is crucial for awareness. All TA indicators are pointing to a slow trend for QTUM, which makes is not even good for a long term hodl.
What just happened to Nano?? I was trading it and bought what I thought was the dip, but it just dropped another 15% in the last week. Is this coin a good project? I’m wondering because i want to either DCA or cut my losses, but everyone is always talking about how fast NANO is for TPS.
LINK is mooning as usual. The TA for this coin is always such a mess, but if you ever see this in the oversold category, it’s time to buy on the spot. This isn’t a coin that you can consistently short, but it is one that you can long fairly easily. Main net is almost here, so it’s best to position yourself for a major pump when it’s announced.
ICON has been making tons of moves in the crypto space for a while now. They really got my attention when they announced that they were moving their office to the Silicon Valley. This really showed how serious they are for their own project, and to bring awareness outside of South Korea, By coming to the US, especially Silicon Valley, they’re positioning themselves for an entirely new market. Although this coin rises and falls in terms of price, it’s a long term hold, expecially since they work directly with Samsung. The Galaxy S10 used technology from ICON to build their blockchain service, so there is definitive value for holding ICON into the future.
RVN has so much potential because it unleashes STOs into the market. The STO craze has failed to materialize so far, but it’s on its way. IEOs have taken the spotlight away from STOs, but its obvious that many large institutions and firms are paving the way for STOs to become the norm. It also means that everything will be on the blockchain. RVN helps build this up and coming ecosystem, so it’s important to atleast hold some of of it.
