One thing that many traders love doing, is to scroll down the listings of coins and tokens on coinmarketcap and look for the hidden gems amongst the 1,587 cryptocurrencies listed in 10,420 markets. Traders then find such coins or tokens that are reasonably priced or doing massive gains, then they research what the coin or token is all about. This usually involves reading whitepapers and reddit community posts. When satisfied, they buy the coin or token and HODL like their lives depend on it.
It with such a premise that I’d like to highlight 3 cryptocurrencies that have slipped under the radar of most traders but show promise in terms of delivering a product or service that solves real life problems, as well as considerable gains in the markets.
Zilliqa (ZIL): The crypto-verse is abuzz with this new project that plans to solve all the Ethereum smart contract issues of security, scalability and speed. Zilliqa has a revolutionary concept known as sharding. It divides the mining network into small shards that perform transactions in parallel. As the shards grow, so do the number of transactions the platform can handle. The project also uses a revolutionary programming language known as Scilla that is developer friendly and secure.
ZIL is currently priced at $0.096 and all hell is bound to break loose when they release the Main Net of the platform later this year.
Crypterium (CRPT): This is a unique token and cryptocurrency project. The token itself will be a requirement for users of the app that is live on Android and iOS. For every transaction, some CRPT will be ‘burnt’ as fuel for the transaction and in turn reducing the total supply. The project aims at bridging the gap between crypto and regular purchases of goods and services on regular Point of Sale systems in stores.
The CRPT token is currently value at $0.79 and is ranked #206 on coinmarketcap.com.
Nem (XEM): NEM was earlier dubbed as the Dark Horse of 2018 by Ethereum World News. This was based on the fact that the coin and project is making major moves in the background and in a silent manner. NEM has lots of potential in the industry of Point of Sale applications and also in the new Bankera exchange that will be launched later this year.
In conclusion, there are a lot of coins and tokens that do not get much publicity and BUZZ in the crypto-verse. But if one were to be keen and dedicate time into researching what is out there, one will realize just how diverse and promising some of these crypto projects are.
