I've been following this obsessively for the last year and have watched moon after moon and researched hundreds of coins. For people getting in now this is my picks for low marketcap coins that can potentially go big in 2018. I will do my best to explain why so I don't just sound like a shill. There are many better choices for long stable gains but I have narrowed it down to these 2 since I feel they have the highest opportunity for exponential growth for multiple reasons. This all considering the market stays healthy through 2018 Reason #1 They have not yet moved to a larger exchange so the exposure has been minimal even though the projects are progressing extremely well. They are focusing on development first and exchanges second and therefore the price is bottle necked. Reason #2 Community involvement is huge Reason #3 Constant achievement or over achieving on project goals and active development teams Reason #4 Both are highly innovative and bring a new element to the crypto market. Reason #5 Both have major development happening in early 2018. Proof of Stake Wallet*PoSWcoin*(soon to be re branded to Stakenet) Coinmarketcap # 27 Million MarketCap--- Ranked 292--- 44 Million circulating---$0.61USD Website PoSW.io Exchange Cryptopia BTC Pair Why? -Trustless proof of stake -Ledger Wallet integration and cold wallet staking. -Cross chain staking(staking coins that are generally not stake able) -Masternodes Posw is basically a website for staking out proof of stake coins. Proof of stake is rapidly overtaking mining or proof of work due to ease of use and low system and resource retirements to do so. Even Ethereum is making the switch in the coming years. Rate of return on most coins is between 1% and 25% reasonably with other coins boasting up to 1200%. Even still staking coins requires effort, a PC turned on with the wallet open 24/7. Setting up multiple wallets and staking multiple coins is a challenge too. At it's heart it is basically a pooling site where you can securely stake all your coins in one manageable spot. What makes this different than other pools is the first ever"Trustless proof of stake or TPoS". Normally having your coins on an exchange or any other pool you are trusting your coins to another party. With TPoS you can stake your coins while still having control of your private keys meaning an exchange hack or exit scam and you are still secure. They are even working on staking from a cold storage source like the Ledger Wallet. This can later be added to other tokens if requested This brings me too the next point. They are already integrated into the Ledger Wallet which is one the most secured hardware wallet. There are around 20 other coins all of which have over 200 million market caps. We are the only coin not simply because we are not on a larger exchange. Finally the reason why I think it will go up simply this. They are re branding to StakeNet, integrating all the new features and there is already a large pool of community money(currently around 50 grand) that will be used strictly for advertising. There is already all but confirmation of new exchanges being added after the coin swap takes place which is on the road map 1st quarter 2018. XtraBytes Coinmarketcap 85 million marketcap---ranked 158---430,000,000 circulating---$0.19USD Website XtraBytes.global Exchange Cryptopia BTC Pair -proof of signature "POS" -community driven -Modular system Alright I'm going to be a bit more lazy on this one simply cause this write up is taking longer than expected haha. Check out the website to get an Idea there is ALOT going on with this coin. Reason why I think it will succeed is first it is fully community driven and an amazing back story. It was originally a scam ICO coin under a different name and the dev stole all the money. A couple of new Devs bought it up at 1 sat and began full development in a new direction. No premine, no ICO, Devs don't hold outrages sums. They basically saved the ass's of everyone who got scammed which is very rare these days. Don't let that make you think it is any less quality and innovative. Basically they have created an all new consensus algorithm called POS(proof of signature). This allows for more static nodes and extremely fast network transactions, scalability and virtually no network congestion. They are setting up to be a modular platform where virtually any type of platform such as cloud storage, marketplaces, etc can be integrated. First modular being created by them is cloud storage however the tools will be available for anyone to begin development. Biggest exchange it is on is Cryptopia and it hit an astonishing 380million marketcap on that exchange alone. After this market correction it is back in the 20 cent range 85million marketcap. The community is huge and actively working on getting on new exchanges. Recently just got narrowly beat out during the voting process for Kucoin however it is being noticed and is growing everyday.
