I would recommend that if you want to start investing into crypto, invest your time rather than your money. There are many ways to invest on cryptocurrencies. Below I have mention some popular coin probably the safest coin for now.
Coins with good technology and highest potential.
- Elastos – Elastos started out as a mobile operating system 18 years ago and has now moved towards a smart contracts platform, operating system and a runtime environment for Dapps. Here are 2 very strong reasons why Elastos will most probably experience a big price hike in next bull run. Thanks to side-chains they are near infinitely scalable and is thus also very decentralized. They are probably the most decentralized cryptocurrency that currently exist next to Skycoin. Correct me if I’m wrong.
- IOTA – 3rd generation blockchain –> Tangle with high scalability, no fees and instant transactions. IOTA aims to be the connective layer between all 80 billion IOT devices that are expected to be connected to the Internet in 2025 and possibly creating 80 billion transactions per second or 800 billion TPS, who knows, though it needs to be seen if the Tangle can keep up with this scalability and iron out its security issues that have not yet been resolved.
- SKYCOIN – Transactions with zero fees that take two seconds, unlimited transaction rate, no need for miners and block rewards, low power usage, all of the usual cryptocurrency technical vulnerabilities fixed, a consensus mechanism superior to anything that exists, resistant to all conceivable threats (government censorship, community infighting, cyber/nuclear/conventional warfare, etc). Skycoin has their own consensus algorithm known as Obelisk written and published academically by an early developer of Ethereum. Obelisk is a non-energy intensive consensus algorithm based on a concept called ‘web of trust dynamics’ which is completely different to PoW, PoS, and their derivatives. Skywire, the flagship application of Skycoin, has the ambitious goal of decentralizing the internet at the hardware level and has already begin the testnet. However, this is just one of the many facets of the Skycoin ecosystem. Skywire will not only provide decentralized bandwidth but also storage and computation, completing the holy trinity of commodities essential for the new internet.
- Nano – 3rd generation blockchain –> Block lattice with high scalability, no fees and instant transactions. Unlike IOTA, Nano only wants to be a payment processor and nothing else, for now at least. With Nano, every user has their own blockchain and has to perform a small amount of computing for each transaction, which makes Nano perform at 300 TPS with no problems with a successful speed test at 7,000 TPS.
Apart from the above Listed coins some other recommended coins are ETN, ADA,TPAY,CRPT,MWATT,IMT,VET, Holochain, Steem, Bat, Nebulas, Enigma.
Note: I always own some amount of each of the top 20 cryptocurrencies, according to market-capitalization. The amount I own of each cryptocurrency is weighted according to their relative market capitalizations (as you might expect, this leaves the majority of my portfolio value in Bitcoin). I automatically place trades as necessary to maintain these allocation constraints as the price and/or supply of the underlying assets change. I only use price data from exchanges that I actually trade on when determining price (avoiding sources like CoinMarketCap) so I am less susceptible to invalid price data from less reputable exchanges.
