Which coins to hold in 2019 and the years to follow?

March 14, 2019

According to the current state of the crypto market, it appears that the predictions announcing the end of the crypto winter were right. Digital currencies are often seeing periods of growth, and while this is still not enough to permanently repair the damage made by either of the two market crashes of 2018, it is still a huge step in the right direction.

Now that the prices seem to be on their way to recover, it is time to think of the future, and make an important choice — which coins to invest in? The crypto market has grown a lot in the last few years, and there are over 2,100 cryptocurrencies in the space, just waiting for investors. However, not all of them hold equal potential.

When choosing the right coin to invest in during 2019 (or in the years to come), investors need to make a choice and stick to it. This is what makes coming up with that choice one of the most important steps to take. Investors can also choose to invest in a certain group of coins, as we will soon see.

With that in mind, here are the top picks for investors, the coins worth looking into and potentially choosing to be a part of your investment portfolio.

Ethereum


Ethereum has become one of the most important coins in the market. It is the coin that represents the second generation of cryptocurrencies, as well as the coin that helped shift the developers' attention to blockchain and its capabilities. Recently, it received a number of updates that have helped its network become more efficient. It is also a go-to platform for creating smart contracts, dApps, and even new tokens. While it does still have its fair share of issues — Ethereum is certainly a coin that is not going away, which makes it a great investment.

Privacy coins


As mentioned earlier, investors might also choose to invest in coins belonging to a certain group, such as privacy coins. These are the coins that make it much more difficult to trace transactions and reveal the user's identity. As such, they are very popular, even though the authorities and centralized exchanges do not appreciate them due to their nature.

Cryptos such as Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC), or Dash (DASH) are all privacy coins and very popular ones at that. With online privacy being in constant danger, having privacy coins in your investment portfolio might not be a bad thing.

Social media integration and monetization


A recent trend of combining the existing technologies with blockchain and crypto has brought a number of coins that threaten to disrupt modern platforms as we know them. TRON, for example, is a coin that aims to revolutionize the entertainment industry and decentralize the web. BitTorrent token is a new coin which aims to reward torrent users who contribute to file sharing. STEEM already has its own social media platform, and so do many other coins, while numerous others are about to arrive. These coins are also worth considering.

New coins and chains


Top cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum are already well-known and well-established, although that does not mean that other, newer projects are to be ignored. There are many among the new projects that are worthy of looking into, such as Cardano, EOS, IOTA, and alike.

Coins that can replace traditional money


While Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency with a goal of serving as a new currency, it is certainly not the only one. There are many other coins out there with a goal of replacing traditional money, such as XRP. While most other cryptos have their uses within their own platforms — one of these coins might become the official currency of the entire world in the future.

Exchange-specific cryptos


Another trend that crypto exchanges have picked up is developing their own cryptocurrencies. These are the coins that are designed to be used on the exchanges' platforms, and they often bring a number of benefits, such as trading fee discount. Binance Coin (BNB) is one such cryptocurrency, and also the best-known one, as well as the higest-ranking one.
