What Is The Best Cryptocurrency To Invest In Right Now?

#1
Hello,

Yes, it is. I will suggest some cryptocurrencies that are greatly potential. My investment strategy analysis is based on the singular price & popularity & stability, functionality then conclude in the last page in this content.

Price & Popularity & Stability:

  1. Price is one of the most important factors to detect potential crytos. Simply, the principle of investment never changes that investors buy at lower price and sell at higher to profit. In a financial perspective, the choices made are depending on how much investors want to profit - highly profitable products are highly risky and lower one refers to lower risk in common.
  2. If you missed the best moment to invest in cryptocurrencies, you don’t have to worry. A part of cryptocurrencies will grow ultimately in the long run based on 4 features:
    1. limitation in quantity - this refers to rarity.
    2. Popularity - investors’ believing is significant.
    3. Centralized or Decentralized - this is one of the reasons why people rather to use cryptocrrency.
    4. Payment acceptance.
  3. Stability is another factors should be considered. Firstly you should know that Bitcoin price influences all types of cryptocurrencies as it captures the market.Therefore, big up and down happened to market is not typical unless all cryptos become collapsed to end. Meanwhile, you should analyze the stability by analyzing charts and math in growth in comparison to Bitcoin (incline & decline in percentage).


Functionality:

  1. Investors obtain initial cryptocurrencies generally in 3 ways:
    1. Mining is the oldest way to collect with ASIC mining gears, also the most potential among these three. Usually the initial price stands low but in a constant growth like Bitcoins.
    2. ICO trade, most of cryptocurrencies are obtainable from ICO by cash payment or cryto trade. ICO is a quick way to fund blockchain project and many have succeed such as Litecoin cryptocurrency. ICO also is considered as financial activity so investors should be aware of money grabbing scams.
    3. Some cryptocurrencies initially runs as investment management tokens such as TruUSD. This doesn’t have much potential in growth for now by research on the market cap rank of this type of cryptos. However, it becomes potential as cryptocurrency largely accepted by payment.
  2. How the crypto blockchain works (what they can provide) is considerable as well. A useful and reasonable blockchain such as wallet will be much acceptable. And it is not a good idea to publish gimcrack blockchain at this moment when the marketplace is filled of ideological gaudy whitepapers.
  3. In my thesis, the efficiency of the process of blockchain doesn’t influence your investment much but it is significant in investors’ options. For instance, Litecoin is an improved blockchain based on Bitcoin and that’s how Litecoin becomes one of the largest cryptocurrencies.
Conclusion

In general, higher profitable cryptos invested, higher risks you take. Some potential cryptocurrencies in low market cap, alike Bitcoin used to be, is possible to break into top 100’s. Thus I concluded some cryptocurrencies that are best options for investment referring to perspectives and features I mentioned above:

  1. Litecoin - low price and it is minable. Potential: 4 stars (maximum 5 stars)
    1. Steem - it relies on the users’ activities on Steemit. Great background and idea. Potential: 4.3 stars (maximum 5 stars)
    2. NEO - it comes with a good competition strength. Seemly government backgrounded. Potential: 3.9 stars (maximum 5 stars)
    3. Bitzeny - ranks 804, little known cryptos, mineable crypto and it’s not much financially affected. Japanese governmental promotion covered. Potential: 3.7 stars (maximum 5 stars)
    4. PostCoin - ranks 963, little known cryptos, partnership with US Post Office, covers financial management assistance. 2.7 stars (maximum 5 stars)
If you have plenty of cash/cryptos, go with LTC, Steem & NEO listed above. If you’re seeking for a fortune, go with Bitzeny. Postcoin is neutral to invest in. At the last, I would like to list some crytocurrencies obviously indicate scams, closure or rupture so stay away from them: Onix, LeafCoin & LeaCoin, Swing, Miners' Reward Token.

Also I conclude all my suggestion in here, the guideline of investment in cryptocurrency.

Cryptocurrencies As Digital Cash: A New Era Of Payment System

As the word portrays, this is electronic cash, currency or money which can be stored on a smart card or in a mobile wallet. Digital cash is a system where one can make payment electronically involving the bank/financial institution directly for the transaction to take place. It is clear that this is a century where technology has become the pillar of advancement in all activities conducted. Many people have drowned into this technology which is much preferred nowadays since it is much quicker and safe. One can also define digital cash as a system used to purchase cash credits and then storing them into the computer where one can use it to do e-purchasing through the internet.
How Digital Cash Works
Just like any other currency, this is a legal currency which is backed by banks and the government. Not many people have an idea of how it works. This has been the trend of making payment after a purchase especially if it is a transaction that involves different countries, for example, online shopping or online payment for a service.
A simple illustration will help you understand how digital cash can be used. For example, “A” is the user who obtains this digital cash from his bank and wants to make a payment using the digital cash to complete a transaction to user “B” who is a merchant. “B” will receive the electronic cash and makes sure that it has been verified by the financial institution.

What Benefits Does Digital Cash Have?
#1 The system is secure
This is a secure system that uses serial numbers to avoid any duplications. There is always a central system which verifies each and every transaction happening through it.
#2 Simple to use
This digital cash is simple to use when it comes to both receiving and spending perspective. Due to its simplicity, users have increased in number and everyone is running into this technology. You do not have to hold a degree in cryptography for you to be a user. Simplicity is the key to creating acceptability for the public.
#3 Offers two-ways services
With digital cash, it is possible for the peer to peer transaction to happen without either of the party requiring a registration merchant status. It has made it possible for a transaction between parties to be easy and fast.
#4 Has facilitated payments
A person from a different country can be able to purchase goods or service and make the payment within a few minutes using digital cash. Are you in the restaurant and as a group have planned to share to cost? This is an easy task, one can make the whole payment using the digital cash and the rest send their share to this one person who has paid the whole bill.
Cryptocurrencies As Digital Cash
As the white paper of very first cryptocurrency Bitcoin says- It is a purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash that would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution. Even though the existing digital transactions are secure, but it relies on financial institutions to serve as a trusted third party for processing. The system works well for most transactions but it still depends on the trust based model. Completely non-reversible transactions are not really possible with this model.
So here comes the cryptocurrencies where the payment is based on cryptographic proof instead of trust, allowing any two parties to transact directly with each other without the need for a trusted third party. Transactions that are computationally non-reversible in this case.
So digital cash is a general, inclusive term for all types of immaterial monies, while cryptocurrencies are a particular sort of digital cash which has special features for decentralization and trustlessness.

Following are some of the examples that can be considered as digital cash in crypto-world. These cryptocurrencies can easily replace existing digital cash:
Bitcoin
Ethereum
Ripple
Litecoin
These are just a few cryptos which are mostly popular, there are others but as for now the above are the one with a larger share in the market. Bitcoin and Ethereum are the strongest cryptocurrencies that face up and downs but still emerge to be the best in the market.
Bitcoin
Bitcoin (BTC) is the first cryptocurrency ever created and got a widespread adoption over the years. Bitcoin is generally traded against FIAT, as the years progressed Bitcoin is also used as a transaction of value. The total supply of Bitcoins is set to 21 million units that can be cryptographically mined over a period of time.
Ethereum
Ethereum (ETH) is the second most popular crypto-asset after Bitcoin. While Bitcoin is created to be a store of value, Ethereum was created to be the ‘World Computer’. Ethereum provides a platform run by something called ‘smart contracts’ which allows others to build protocols and applications on the Ethereum platform. These protocols and apps can provide different functionalities based on the services they provide, opening to a wide range of different sets of crypto assets.

Ripple
Ripple (XRP) is the most controversial of all the crypto-assets. Let’s break down ripple into two categories: Ripple Protocol and XRP (Ripple Crypto currency). Ripple raised in popularity when its protocol challenged the way the entire banking system works. The current system, SWIFT, which the banks use is time consuming and a very inefficient way of information transfer between two banks. Ripple’s protocol can be used to provide lightning fast transactions between different banks in two different continents. One of the reason why Ripple is most controversial is because of the centralization over its network. While most of the crypto assets are decentralized, over 70% of XRP’s reserves are held by its founders and they dictate how to develop and use Ripple. Also XRP is not strictly required to be used in Ripple’s protocol creating more negativity around its value over time.
Litecoin
Litecoin is another peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that is similar to Bitcoin. As more and more people started embracing Bitcoin, there came a time where people thought Bitcoin won’t be scalable in long term due to its mean block time of 10 minutes. As more and more transactions happen in BTC, the more time it takes to confirm the transaction resulting in higher transaction fees and a blockade of unverified transactions in memepool. Hence Litecoin was born hard-forking the Bitcoin network making some slighter modifications to its protocol in order to accommodate for less mean mining time resulting in more transactions without clogging the network. The mean block time for Lite coin is 2.5 minutes and the total supply is capped to 81 million.
Apart from these top cryptos there a few more cryptocurrencies which can be used a digital cash for payment: Dash, Monero, DigiByte, ReddCoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Vertcoin etc.
Major Differences Between Digital Cash And Cryptocurrencies
The verification of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies transaction uses a private key to make payment where each and every person who possesses ownership has a private key; this is how the Bitcoin is decrypted. On the other side, digital cash uses a public key to decrypt the note provided by the bank.
Cryptocurrencies use blockchain where verified transactions are stored; in this case, the financial institutions are not involved in verifying the transaction. Current digital cash is verified through the note that contains a unique serial number that the financial institution provides the user with each note used in any transaction contains a new serial number that helps the bank in the verification process.
Bottomline
As discussed above it shows that digital cash has a big difference when it comes to the techniques used in its operation compared to cryptocurrencies. Theft or fraud in cryptocurrencies is very rare since the process is secure and very safe for the transaction. But the cryptocurrencies have a basic problem for scalability. Bitcoin blockchain can process only almost 5 to 7 transactions per second while current digital payment system like VISA cards can process up to 2000 transactions in a second. Many developments are going on to solve the scalability issues for the Cryptocurrencies. If this happens then cryptocurrencies have a great future ahead as a payment medium.
In the next article of this series, we will discuss about Privacy Coins.
