Who can beat BTC price in the short term? This week three very unique coins have been selected: WaBi, BNB, and TRON. WABI looks to be the top contender to produce the highest returns as a cryptocurrency.
The price stagnation within BTC price [coin_price] has led to many mini altcoin rallies. Cryptocurrencies highlighted in similar articles such as GOChain increased well over 100% since their being selected as an ‘undervalued cryptocurrency.’
These current market conditions represent a spring coiling in the cryptocurrency space. Summer was filled with negative news about Bitcoin and blockchain. However, since quarter four has begun there has been no real BTC positive price movement. This is contrary to the news which has been positive for over a month.
Last week saw:
- NYSE’s parent company announced December 12th as their launch date for Bakkt (BTC settled USD pairs).
- The country of Singapore invested directly in Binance.
- The country of China which had previously different styles of bans on ICOs and crypto ruled BTC as property.
- Coinbase added USDC.
- Bitfury considering an IPO (not ICO).
The prior week in blockchain and cryptocurrency has seen BTC stagnate even with the spectacular news. The spring has been coiled and the question that remains is which cryptocurrency will appreciate against BTC in the next few weeks to few months?
When analyzing the market to see which coins have already had their mini bulls runs it becomes increasingly obvious that WaBi, BNB, and TRON should all have major positive movement.
WABI has the smallest market cap and significant quarter four news. Most of their news has yet to be announced but an exclusive interview with the founder this week provided some inside details. BNB and TRON are likely to produce returns far greater than BTC’s due to their communities and utility.
However, WABI is the most undervalued on this list as TRON and BNB have market caps over $1 billion, while WABI’s market cap is under $20 million.
Although a higher risk cryptocurrency play, WABI is most likely to produce the highest returns when compared to BTC and other cryptocurrencies in the market.
WaBi [coin_price coin=wabi] is a cryptocurrency with under a 20 million dollar market cap, is traded on Binance, has major events and news all quarter four, and provided an exclusive interview with the founder for this piece. Not only is right now the opportune time to research WaBi but it radiates as an undervalued cryptocurrency.
Walimai is a safe-channel ecosystem for consumer products. The purpose of Walimai is to secure supply chains of important consumer goods (such as baby milk). So what is the WaBi?
Well the WaBi is provided as an incentive for scanning anti-counterfeit labels of WaBi products. This helps drives consumer awareness of the product’s transition through the supply chain and insures product safety.
China (where WaBi is predominantly located) has had multiple scandals involving food which has resulted in large scale accidental poisonings. WaBi looks to solve the issue of supply chain monitoring for consumer goods and has found a way to incentivize the public for participating in the process.
The WaBi cryptocurrency once attained can be used to discount the cost of consumer products along with improving delivery terms. This demonstrates clear utility in a niche market which needed blockchain support (consumer goods and the supply chain).
Why is now the time for WaBi? According to CoinMarketCal WaBi is undertaking a full rebranding in quarter four, they are going to open up sales to South East Asia, Latin America, and Europe, and they plan to introduce Walimai Labels for pharmaceuticals as well. This is a very impressive roadmap for quarter four which led to my desire to speak directly to the Founder, Alex.
In my exclusive interview with the WaBi Founder, I was able to uncover a few more details regarding the upcoming big news. The rebranding is not just the altering of some colors. WaBi is about to undergo a full rebranding regarding the name, colors, fonts, websites (WaBi and Walimai). They have been working with a top design agency while having interviewed almost 1000 users regarding user friendliness and aesthetics. Their rebranding is the first of its kind because they are bringing the active WaBi community into the process. They are providing prizes to supporters who participate in the rebranding, holding an almost scavenger hunt to ‘find’ the new website and additional features.
A cryptocurrency rebranding is very exciting especially because of how different WaBi plans to handle it. Immediately following the rebranding WaBi intends to have a major press release push, almost identical to what they did in 2017 when they were featured on BBC, CNBC, Business Insier, Reuters, and many more (this prior PR push dramatically increased WaBi’s value). The rebranding, budget allocated for major advertising and press releases all take place in quarter four. The public only knows the basics about the rebranding and has no idea a major publicity campaign is about to begin.
The WaBi token is being introduced to a large number of convenience stores across Asia where deals are being negotiated currently to accept WaBi as a form of payment (not just as a discount or to improve shipping terms). This is one of the biggest surprises as once completed the WaBi cryptocurrency will be able to be spent simply across their biggest market demographic.
WaBi’s roadmap positions them with a focus on developed parts of the world where there is the lowest access to quality authentic imported goods. Places like China where counterfeit goods are rampant have been fast to adopt the WaBi coin and Walimai platform.
The WaBi team has been adding new hires and continuing to build out their platform during this extended bear market. The development team has seen 5 new hires added in the last few months. While most cryptocurrencies have been hiding in the shadows of the bear market WaBi has been building at an unprecedented rate.
The last poignant point Alex, the Founder of WaBi made was in regards to my question, “Given the market fluctuations since the ICO how has your coin coped?”
He was very direct in his response. WaBi is up 71% against BTC in the prior year, 8% against the USD, and 158% against ETH compared to their ICO prices. Their focus shifted entirely from publicity and marketing to internal product and core team development. He was also very quick to mention how supportive and active their community is, one of the main reasons WaBi fared so well against other cryptocurrencies. This internal development and platform enhancement is about to pay significant dividends in quarter 4 once the rebranding is complete and the PR campaign goes into full swing.
My final question was regarding the long-term plans for WaBi. I was excited to hear WaBi plans to enter the alcohol products arena as many parts of the world have suffered toxic counterfeit alcohol poisonings. This expansion of products is followed by their expansion to new demographics in different parts of the world.
Many supply chain cryptocurrencies have market caps in excess of 1 billion dollars. WaBi has a working platform, a utilizable token, a quarter four with more exciting news than 99% of cryptocurrencies, a dedicated team, and expansion at an unprecedented rate.
If there was a cryptocurrency that had a significant likelihood of “mooning” in quarter four due to every possible positive factor going their way, it would be WaBi. Look for WaBi to test 50-200% returns in the short term depending on how quickly the traders and investors look ahead to the cryptocurrency calendars.
BNB – Binance Coin
For those that actively trade or even occasionally invest it is obvious to “own” where you trade. The BNB [coin_price coin=binance-coin] token is the native token of the Binance exchange. By possessing BNB in your account many benefits are provided from lower trading fees to earning a higher percentage of the fees generated by your referrals. If you have any referrals or make any trades it only makes sense to own the required 500 BNB to lower your fees while increasing your referral bonus.
It was only last week that Singapore announced directly investing in the Binance platform. Financial capitals of the world are taking a keen interest in the largest and most respected cryptocurrency exchange. Binance also announced that in their first week in Uganda they signed up over 40,000 users. Africa being underbanked and needing financial stability will likely turn to cryptocurrencies to combat hyperinflation. Exchanges will capitalize on this with Binance making early moves into the continent. This was not the only positive news for BNB and Binance this week.
Travelbybit is integrating BNB as a payment method across all their platforms and merchants. BNB originally had very little utility beyond the benefits it provided for ‘hodling’ on Binance (lower trading fees and a higher referral bonus). However, the BNB cryptocurrency is pivoting from a coin used solely to benefit Binance traders to one that can be openly transacted and utilized on the same level as the predominant players like BTC. This not only greatly increases the utility of BNB but when utility increases price usually follows soon after.
What about Binance’s fearless leader that seems to maneuver through any regulatory hurdle thrown his way? Changpeng Zhao or more commonly known in the crypto space as “CZ” is one of the most influential individuals in the entire blockchain community. Not only did he manage to build what has been continuously ranked as the #1 exchange by volume in under two years but also actively engages the community, attends conferences, and is exceptionally humble for all he’s accomplished. CZ is hands down one of the most active Founders in the space and his influence is rivaled by almost no one.
Supporting a coin that CZ is the Founder of, is the ‘baby’ of the largest cryptocurrency exchange, has news that regularly adds more utility (can now be used to pay for travel), and provides daily benefits for just HODLING makes BNB a top candidate for accumulation prior to the next bull run.
There will be a flood of new traders to the biggest exchanges when the Altseason begins, at that point it will be too late to buy BNB. The time to accumulate coins that are likely to trend North in the short term is not once Altseason has begun, but prior with enough time to enjoy the gains.
BNB is a cryptocurrency with a market cap over a billion dollars that should easily see 100% returns at the nearest sign of the next bull run.
TRX – TRON
The cryptocurrency community has been all over the place regarding their feelings about TRON. TRX [coin_price coin=tron] is a cryptocurrency that like many has been on the hot seat through the bear market. Say what you want about TRX, the reality is their community is one of the most devoted and loyal in crypto. The only more enthusiastic community may be XRP enthusiasts. With TRX regularly being supported by their community regardless of market conditions this cryptocurrency popped onto the radar this week because of their upcoming quarter four news.
TRX plans to release their open-source platform on December 29, 2018. It seems many cryptocurrencies have a feeling the second half of quarter 4 will provide many catalysts. TRX’s open-source platform will provide a revolutionary smart contract and Dapps platform. This is when true utility begins. With their open-source platform going live in the final week of quarter four TRX seems like an acquisition target prior to gem hunters finding this news.
This week on November 1, Coinsuper listed TRX paired against both BTC and ETH. Even with the majority of top exchanges already supporting TRX their team has committed to continued listings. This shows that both the developers are hard at work on their open source platform while the community managers and Founders are focused on reaching out to exchanges and networking.
Directly following quarter four TRX hosts the Nitron Summit January 17 and 18 in San Francisco. TRX is fiscally positioned to be able to host conferences, pay for major exchange listings, fund future development, all through a bear market. If this does not demonstrate dedication in the crypto space, nothing will.
Justin Sun, the Founder of TRON is also one of the more influential individuals in crypto. Having such an influential, well connected, and educated blockchain leader is positive for any cryptocurrency.
TRX has their open source Dapp platform going live before the end of the year, they are hosting a major conference in San Francisco in January and were just listed on Coinsuper. For a ‘safer’ cryptocurrency play TRX seems to have many important catalysts through early January.
Beat BTC Price: Take Your Pick
Cryptocurrency is a risky environment to be trading, gambling, and investing in. However, with enough research, a significant portion of risk can be mitigated. Not every cryptocurrency selected will appreciate as no trader/investor is an oracle.
However, by analyzing almost every coin on Binance thoroughly, I’ve intentionally selected the ones that have the highest probabilities to appreciate in the short term based on upcoming news, their community, market sentiment, their teams, and many other factors.
The highest risk cryptocurrency, which is likely to produce the greatest returns from the cryptocurrencies on this list is WaBi. Their marketing plan coupled with a rebranding, platform expansion, demographic expansion, dedicated team, communicative founders, and major quarter four news provide more catalysts than most can expect.
Look for WaBi to outperform almost every cryptocurrency on Binance in the next few days through the end of December.
For those looking for a safer ‘blue chip’ option, the cryptocurrency of choice would be BNB. CZ could not be more dedicated or passionate about crypto. Hopefully, more individuals emulate his behavior in the space over the long term. BNB benefits every hodler on Binance and as more traders begin trading again BNB will become highly sought after.
TRX has had the hype train take it on a wild ride. However, quarter four has plenty of reasons that as a cryptocurrency it should appreciate. Hosting conferences and open source platforms built for Dapps is a fantastic start regarding catalysts.
WaBi remains a coin that can likely breach a $100 million market cap providing a 6x for those that accumulate prior to the market cap surpassing $20 million. Given the high-risk high reward nature of crypto, WaBi should be on the “accumulation and research list” for those looking for major quarter four gains.
