5 AltCoins Likely To Pump In January’18

Crypto community could not be more satisfied with the thrills and chills the digital currency world has given us in 2017.
Listed below are “top cryptocurrency to follow” picks for January 2018:


NEO ($NEO)

What is the project about?

It aims at supporting a smart economy using digital identity technology to allow for the digitization of assets and, like Ethereum, supports smart contracts, which allow for the management of those same assets.

Why to believe in it:

NEO ($NEO) recently started to gain more attention from investors. Its price more than doubled since the beginning of December. In January, the team will further distribute the network, guaranteeing no single group of node operators can control the network. It will also have a number of ICOs launching on its platform in the months to come, which will further strengthen the network’s position.

0x ($ZRX)

What is the project about?

It aims at overcoming security issues related to the centralization of current exchanges like Bitifinex or Coinbase, which makes them more exposed to threats.

Why to believe in it:

The constant attacks on major centralized exchanges in the last few months have made the issues of security for investors ever more apparent, with increasing attention been given to decentralized exchanges. 0x ($ZRX) boasts a solid project and from our view, with a market cap ranging at USD$200 million and at a token cost of USD$.50, it has a lot of room to grow.

Cardano ($ADA)

What is the project about?

It boosts an architecture that has both users and regulators in mind, an unusual set up. Cardano ($ADA) could come to offer e-commerce providers a structure where they can operate with the benefits of the blockchain while obeying by the rules of the regulators overseeing them.

Why to believe in it:

Cardano ($ADA) has managed to gather an amazing amount of attention in December, skyrocketing into the top 10 currencies by market capitalization and multiplying its value by five. The team is updating their roadmap in January, which should further focus attention on the project. We expect a lot of activity around Cardano ($ADA) in January.

Substratum ($SUB)

What is the project about?

Image result for Substratum coinSubstratum ($SUB) develops a platform that aims at rewarding users, rather than miners, for the work of the blockchain. On the one hand, it serves businesses, groups and individuals that which to host apps or websites on their network. On the other, individuals can easily allocate part of their CPU’s capacity to run the nodes that forward the content from the website hosts, paying them back in Substratum ($SUB). It provides a safe and private way of accessing the Internet without censorship.

Why to believe in it:

Substratum ($SUB)’s project could come to do away with the need to use VPNs or systems like TOR to bypass internet censorship in a private way. The node operating application is designed to be very easy to install and run by non-techy users, opening the door for large adoption motivated by the financial reward. It more than doubled in price in December but we believe it still has a long way to go. The team is launching the platform’s beta version in early January which should rally the price up.

EOS ($EOS) is running the most unique ICO of 2017. It will will run for 341 days, until June 2018, allowing plenty of time for scrutiny and for investors to become acquainted with the project. Just in December 2017, EOS’s price has already tripled. The fact that the project has high transaction speeds, no fees and no need for forks to perform upgrades, make it a highly interesting coin to follow.
