WHAT ARE THE BEST CRYPTOCURRENCIES TO BE PURCHASING FOR 2018?
As we start 2018 the buzz for what is to come the excitement is electrifying in the industry & nothing I have ever seen before. People are going crazy to get started and FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is really kicking in.
Please be careful though there is so much noise out there at present. You really do need to just take your time and do the research and make sure what ever you do is best for you. I know it’s hard to get your head around it all, so hopefully by the end of this you will have a much better idea.

EOS has been created to design decentralised apps (daps) & smart contacts and is known for the competition it brings to Ethereum, many are saying this is Ethereum on steroids.
EOS is a blockchain-based, decentralized operating system, designed to support commercial-scale decentralized applications by providing all of the necessary core functionality, enabling businesses to build blockchain applications in a way similar to web-based applications.
EOS’s asynchronous communication and parallel processing provide scalability, while its ownership model eliminates transaction fees. These features make EOS a serious competitor of Ethereum (although EOS’s ICO actually supports Ethereum).
Created by Daniel Larimer who is also the brains behind Steem and Bitshares, Daniel is one the smartest programming individuals in the Cryptocurrency industry with years of experience and one of the best in the world at what he does Daniel brings huge credibility to the EOS eco system.
Also involved is Genius and Cryptocurrency billionaire Brock Pierce. What ever Brock touches it turns to Gold. As one of the most influential people in the space with huge success in many projects across the industry I just know Brock Pierce & Dan Larimer are behind this could easily be there best project yet.
It also says so much and I really do see a huge year for EOS in 2018. The technology is second to none and they offer a huge solution to payments with hundreds of thousands of transactions per second Capability. EOS also offers scalability to cater for millions of transactions per second.
With tremendous backing and one of the strongest teams in any project,the growth of EOS in 2018 will mammoth. The potential for gains in this coin is looking really good. ( No guarantees it can drop in value too.)

- Decentralised App Creator
- Delegated proof of Stake Blockchain
- Can Process hundreds of Thousands of Transactions Every Second
- Scalability for Millions of Transactions Per Second
- Eliminates Fees
Huge contender for 2018
2- VERGE (XVG)
Verge Is a secure, & anonymous Cryptocurrency that focuses on privacy by bringing Blockchain transactions to every day life. With Verge currency, businesses and individuals have flexible options for sending and receiving payments. Verge Currency is a cryptocurrency designed for everyday use. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain and aims to fulfill its initial purpose of providing individuals and businesses with a fast, efficient and decentralized way of making direct transactions while maintaining personal privacy.
Verge development and marketing is supported by the thousands of members of the community.
Transaction speeds are ultra-fast compared to other coins. Simple Payment Verification (SPV) technology allows average transaction confirmation times to drop to ~5 seconds.
Verge uses multiple anonymity networks such as Tor and I2P. The IP addresses of the users are obfuscated and the transactions are completely untraceable & 100% Anonymous.
Private, secure, instant transactions run on a complete decentralised network with no central body controlling anything.
The team here are really creating something special and it could go on a real bull run in 2018.
(Charts taken 1/1/18 from http://www.coinmarketcap.com)
- Completely Anonymous
- Fast Transactions
- 30 Second Blockchain
- Ready and Scalable for Mass Adoption
- TOR Browser Capability
Really strong and one or watch out for this could have huge gains if the demand stays as strong as it is now. Really looking forward to seeing this grow and implement their technology.
NEO is a next generation smart economy platform (formerly Antshares) yet another smart contract platform (more on smart contracts in another blog coming soon) NEO is positioned as a “public cloud” and is part of a much bigger strategy by the Chinese government in establishing pre-eminence as a Blockchain platform industry leader. They want developers, in general, to use their tools and platform and develop the ecosystem.
NEO has a sister company OnChain that’s already a “made man” in terms of the financial services industry. It is also currently working with the Chinese and Japanese government along with large corporations including Alibaba.
NEO is considered more of a open-source public cloud model which will be separate from OnChain but can also interconnected in terms of the cross chain functionality as we will see more of with NeoX.
I think NEO has some serious work to do to catch Ethereum & EOS but as it seems to have backing from the Chinese Government then maybe it has some serious legs. Will be interesting to see how this gets used within the Asian markets and industries.
(Charts taken 1/1/18 from http://www.coinmarketcap.com)
- Smart Contract Platform
- Backed by the Chinese Government
- Validated Digital Identity
- Digital Asset Configuration
- Asian Market
Neo looks good but not sure it can take over Ethereum or EOS. Only time will tell.
4- Cardano (ADA)
Cardano is home to the Ada cryptocurrency, founded by Charles Hoskinson who was part of Ethereum and many other projects. Cardano can be used to send and receive digital funds. This digital cash represents the future of money, making possible fast, direct transfers that are guaranteed to be secure through the use of cryptography.
Cardano is more than just a cryptocurrency, however, it is a technological platform that will be capable of running financial applications currently used every day by individuals, organisations and governments all around the world. The platform is being constructed in layers, which gives the system the flexibility to be more easily maintained and allow for upgrades by way of soft forks
Cardano has its own Block Explorer. This is a useful tool that can be used to check the history of transactions that have taken place on the Cardano blockchain.
All Ada transactions are publicly recorded on the blockchain and you can search to find details about any one of them. Information you will be able to see includes the amount of Ada sent, the public address of the sender, and the time and date of the transaction.
(Charts taken on 1/1/18 from http://www.coinmarketcap.com)
- Fast & Direct Transactions
- Capable of High Financial Transactions
- Has it’s own Blockexplorer
- Very Strong /Credible Team
Could potentially be a nice increase in price so one to watch for sure.
5- IOTA (MIOTA).
The main feature of this cryptocurrency is the tangle, a directed acyclic graph (DAG) for storing transactions. The tangle naturally succeeds the blockchain as its next evolutionary step, and offers features that are required to establish a machine- to-machine micropayment system.
The Tangle Ledger, is a revolutionary new blockless distributed ledger which is scalable, lightweight and for the first time ever makes it possible to transfer value without any fees. Yes you read that right, zero fees on micro transactions.
A decentralised and self-regulating peer-to-peer network with true micro and even nano-transactions are enabled due to the unique IOTA Tangle architecture, providing developers with a brand new set of tools for their applications in both IoT and Web.
The Tangle ledger is able to settle transactions with zero fees so devices can trade exact amounts of resources on-demand. The Tangle ledger is so new though and not established as the Blockchain just yet.
So it will be interesting to follow the developments of this technology in 2018 if they get this right it could be a huge disruption to the disruption of Blockchain Technology.
As the Internet-of-Things keep expanding, the need for sharing of resources become a necessity. IOTA enables companies to explore business-2-business models by making every technological resource a potential service to be traded on an open market in real time, with no fees.
The concept of IOTA is really interesting & the fact the designed their own Public Ledger Technology speaks volumes to the confidence they have in the project.
There is still not much evidence of how robust and effective it can be right now.
The developments of this technology is something I am keeping a very keen eye on for 2018.
(These charts were taken on 1/1/18 from http://www.coinmarketcap.com)
- Developed New Ledger technology
- Tangle Network is unique
- Instant Transactions
- No Fees
- Business -2-Business Payments
I really like IOTA but unsure how the Tangle Network will develop. If done right could be the next disrupting technology. Only time will tell.
6- Vertcoin (VTC)
Vertcoin (VTC) stays true to the original vision of cryptocurrency: a financial system owned by its users, the people’s coin.
Vertcoin is developed by community members working as volunteers and the project is wholly funded by donations.
Vertcoin’s algorithm is designed to resist the development of custom mining hardware and multipool mining, ensuring that transactions are validated by a widely distributed network. The developers have pledged to take whatever steps are necessary to protect this coin from specialized mining equipment and make sure that it will always be possible to mine with consumer grade hardware.
Mining should be fair & easy! Vertcoin do not allow ASICs on their network. The development team is wholly committed to keeping it that way. VTC ensures the long term security and fair distribution of the currency by doing it this way.
(Lightning Network Development)
A decentralized way of exchanging your Vertcoins with another. A layer to cross both blockchains (Example: Vertcoin & Litecoin or Bitcoin) – Where you can seamlessly exchange your Vertcoin for Litecoin or Bitcoin (Or the other way around) on your wallet. This is a feature of The Lightning Network.
I think Vertcoin has a true decentralised concept and gives power back to the people. I really like Vertcoin & will be watching this closely. I think VTC has huge growth potential for 2018 in my opinion. No guarantees on any further earnings.
(Charts were taken 1/1/18 from http://www.coinmarketcap.com)
- Unique Mining
- Lightning Network Capability
- Coin Exchange
- Owned by the Users
- Fast Transactions
With lightning Network capability, instant transactions, secure development team attached too. I truly believe this could be a great feature to carry this coin forward as a huge contender in 2018.
These are just some of the coins available & I can not write about all of them on one page. There are to far to many in the market place right now.
