The cryptocurrency industry has gone through many phases, from the period in which hardly anyone knew about it, until the explosion of the end of 2017. After the burst of the bubble, the industry still exists, but which projects really have to show what the future?
Ethereum is one of the top cryptocurrencies out there. When someone knows what Bitcoin is, he or she probably knows Ethereum. Long it was the number two cryptocurrency, but now sits in third place behind Ripple.
However, the platform is starting to show quite a few signs of aging. Competition is also getting stronger, which means there is a risk that Ethereum will drop further on the crypto-list. With the upcoming Constantinople hard fork, investors and developers hope that the scaling problems of the platform will be solved somewhat.
EOS, another crypto from the top 5, has to do with a lack of trust from its community. This is partly due to the chaotic launch of EOS ‘MainNet, which almost immediately crashed. There are also rumors that the CTO of the platform wants to launch a new crypto, something no one is waiting for. The community prefers that this energy is put into the innovation of EOS.
Basic Attention Token (BAT)
BAT is a crypto that mainly deals with online marketing. The token works best with the Brave browser, and users can, for example, choose to watch commercials in exchange for BAT. Something that many people expect to significantly improve online marketing.
However, the option of looking at advertising to earn BAT does not yet appear to be available. The overall development of the crypto also does not meet the expectations of many crypto enthusiasts.
It is to be hoped that these crypto projects will really show something in 2019. Perhaps 2019 will be a good year for crypto.
