Owning Crypto - Akbar Thobhani & William Quigley

01062018 Owning Crypto

Cheers! Crypto-enthusiasts (and traders) look always for the next big thing to buy or invest in… most missed bitcoin when it officially launched, most also missed Ethereum, Dash, Ripple and others. It’s quite obvious that coins already listed on or other sites are not the ones that will grow 10000% (unless you are really lucky). Some would say ecosystems like Ethereum will massively grow in the future, but they already have a market cap of hundreds of millions dollars - not the thing hyper-speculative investors look for. The value will grow, but not 10000%+.

The incredible success of bitcoin has spawned a whole army of cryptocurrencies from different developers. Bitcoin was created as recently as 2009. Today, there are already more than 1600 cryptocurrencies. They are all collectively known as altcoins, (Bitcoin Alternatives).

So what’s next for the new year when it comes to everything that’s Crypto? From new altcoins, tokens and ICOs.

Don’t allow FOMA (fear of missing out) set in - be in the Know, so you can take advantage for this red-hot market.
