Let’s start this off by stating that EVERY coin on this list probably won’t do 100X their current price.
Some will. Some may only do 10-20X their current price, while others could end up failing miserably. Keep that in mind when investing.
Always do your own due diligence above and beyond what you read online, and never invest more than you can comfortably afford to lose. That being said, the one’s on this list that end up seeing widespread adoption and solving real world problems could bring investors several years worth of returns.
Here are our candidates for coins with the potential to do 100X their current price.
17. Mercury Protocol (GMT)
I’m sure you’ve thought someone would create a messaging app using blockchain. And someone has! The Mercury Protocol (GMT) is currently deployed in a messaging app called Dust. The project has Mark Cuban as one of their advisors.
In a cryptocurrency market predicated on hype, that gives GMT an edge over its competitors. Messaging using Mercury Protocol is supposed to be more secure and more private. It also allows for cross-platform integration of both services are using the protocol – if WhatsApp ever decides to use it, for example, you’d be able to use WhatsApp to send a message to someone on their Telegram.
- First blockchain based messaging token (GMT stands for Global Messaging Token)
- Mark Cuban being associated with this project generates hype, which is very important for the price of cryptocurrencies.
Where to buy GMT: Etherdelta
16. MyWish (WISH)
We all know what smart contracts are, but how does regular Joe from Alabama do a smart contract? The client side interface and ease of use of a smart contract is very important, and this is what MyWish (WISH) is trying to accomplish.
They’ve already developed applications for weddings, wills, and insurance. Real estate is on the roadmap. But the main problem that they’re the first mover in, is who inherits your cryptocurrencies in the unfortunate event of your death? In cryptocurrency terms, this is the “lost key problem.” The WISH team is developing smart contract solutions for all these problems.
- Working product with a wedding contract, lost key contract, will contract and deferred payment.
- Roadmap suggests major innovations such as BTC contracts in the short term.
Where to buy WISH: Cryptopia
15. EquiTrader (EQT)
A favorite of many that is currently under a $5 million market cap. EquiTrader is a social platform for traders where they can share their ideas and get rewarded by the community.
EQT comes equipped with trading charts, indicators, trading tools and other features which will make it easy to make technical analysis. You will also have the ability to shadow other traders and make automatic trades based on what they do.
Where to buy EQT: Crytopia
14. SONM (SNM)
SONM (SNM) is a decentralised Amazon Web Services. The name stands for Supercomputer Organized by Network Mining. With a partnership with HP in the bag and already being listed on major exchanges, SONM has the capability to be the cryptocurrency that eats into AWS’s market.
What they call “fog computing” in their whitepaper is essentially decentralised cloud computing. This means anyone can host websites, develop applications, produce machine learning and perform calculations using SONM architecture.
Their whitepaper makes so much sense that DADI, a hyped up pre-ICO, was found to have copied it word for word.
13. Nebulas (NAS)
It’s the first blockchain search engine, and it comes equipped with smart contract prediction, which is useful for people who want to… predict smart contracts. NAS is partnered with Tencent, and the testnet is already online. Mainnet is aimed to launch in Q1 2018.
- The train hasn’t left yet in terms of valuation, so it’s definitely underbought.
- Active dev team with constant updates on the Github repo.
Where to buy NAS: Gate.io or Etherdelta
12. SelfKey (KEY)
SelfKey is a self-sovereign identity ecosystem that enables citizens to protect their freedom, privacy, and wealth. Through SelfKey’s Identity Wallet, individuals and companies are able to securely manage their digital identities. On top of that, SelfKey makes the “Know Your Customer” (KYC) norms followed by financial and government institutions quick and painless for users through a simple KYC onboarding process.
Importantly, all of your personal data and documents are stored locally on your device and not on a SelfKey server or on the blockchain. The only time that your data is accessible is when you choose to share it with a trusted institution.
Cryptocurrency investors who participate in token sales can especially benefit from using the SelfKey Identity Wallet, as sending ETH and identity documentation can be done with a single click. Additionally, the SelfKey marketplace can be used to apply for passports, claim citizenship through investment, create a bank account, submit residency applications, and more.
The month of February was very eventful for SelfKey, including new partnerships with banks in the Dutch Antilles and Cayman Islands as well as the alpha release of the SelfKey marketplace. That’s on top of the SelfKey–Polymath partnership that was announced at the end of January. With Identity Wallet support for cryptocurrency transactions coming before the end of Q1, March is shaping up to be another strong month for the project.
Where To Buy KEY: Kucoin
11. Blockport (BPT)
Blockport, is another exchange. Though we think this exchange really stands out because it focusses on being a social exchange. We have seen tokens that support the exchanges do really well (in our January pick- KuCoin shares did 3500% in a month.) We think Blockport has a really solid team, it is also one of the first ICO’s from the Netherlands.
They successfully funded the project in their ICO with support of the AFM (Authority financial markets, sort of SEC for the US). So we think it is a good pick for the potential to see a big return. The token trades with discounted fees.
At the moment the token is trade-able on KuCoin. Blockport is planning to release their beta platform in March.
- Social exchange
- Supported by AFM
- Good team
- Beta in March 2018
- Good communication
- Another exchange
Where To Buy BPT: Kucoin
10. ICON (ICX)
ICON team has released an official wallet, ICONex. It is still only a desktop version, introduced by Chrome extension, but it will be expanded to mobile Android & iOS in the near future. According to the official announcement, ICONex supports not only native ICX coins of ICON Mainnet, but also ETH and ethereum-based ERC20 tokens.
Currently there are only ethereum-based ERC20 ICX tokens in circulation, distributed to ICON ICO participants at the end of 2017 as a temporary substitution for native ICX coins. Once ICON Mainnet is launched officially, there will be a swap of ERC20 ICX tokens to native ICX coins. ICON Mainnet, functioning now in a test mode, was launched in January 2018.
The official launch will be announced soon (presumably in March-April, 2018), as well as information about the swap of ERC20 ICX tokens to native ICX coins. After several months after publish numerous announcements about the token swap, the ERC20 ICX tokens will be burned. ICON is at an absolute value down at these levels.
9. Kyber Network (KNC)
This is simply a case of a quality project being severely undervalued.
Kyber Network (KNC) is a decentralized exchange built on a system of reserves. The project, which held its ICO in late 2017, is one of two projects formally advised and backed by Vitalik Buterin (Buterin has announced his support and advisement publicly for Kyber Network and OmiseGo).
Kyber’s decentralized exchange model is unlike anything we have seen before because it provides guaranteed liquidity at all times.
At its core, Kyber is also deflationary. The reserves must hold and spend KNC to execute these transactions, and a portion of the spent KNC is burned following every trade. As users and reserves increase on the Kyber Network, so will the demand for KNC. However, the supply of KNC will simultaneously decrease. High demand plus low supply equals positive price action.
If you look across the market, you can see how exchange tokens have been bullish over the past few months. Tokens such as BNB, ZRX, KCS, and KMD have all found their way into the top 50 cryptocurrencies on CoinMarketCap. However, Kyber is currently sitting in the 70s, and it seems to have stabilized in that range. Based on the success of the other utility tokens in its field, KNC seems to be extremely undervalueD.
8. Vibe (VIBE)
Vibe Coin is a platform designed to combine the benefits of blockchain with the emerging trend of virtual reality. The developers want to create new virtual spaces, which, among other things, make it possible to hold business meetings, attend live events, take part in sporting events and meet new people. Vibe is at the forefront and already today builds a platform that can be used for the upcoming virtual universe, the Vibehub.
Vibe Coin is based on the Ethereum blockchain and is an ERC20 token. The token is used in the context of payment transactions on the platform, so that artists and teachers have the opportunity to reach millions of users via virtual reality. Monetizing virtual augmented and virtual reality content plays a particularly important role here. In order to give users a good chance of success, they have the freedom to become active in unique marketplaces within the framework of the Vibehubs. In addition, all Vibe payments and transactions are completed through Vibehub.
7. VeChain (VEN)
VeChain is the very fast blockchain based application to grace the crypto-world with an innovative way of providing tamper free information around products. This is a future business distributed model that will create a reference point for all players in the supply chain management.
The VeChain Foundation in Singapore started off as a supply chain company but has recently announced its plans to move into the decentralized platform and hence evolving to become Enterprise DApp (decentralized application) solutions similar to Ethereum.
VeChain’s operations are similar to IBM’s crypto-anchors technology. VeChain functions as a mix of blockchain technology and their in-house built smart chip (tiny piece of code) to track items throughout their lifecycle and also to guarantee you’re receiving the same intended product at every node. VeChain’s strategy is beneficial in many ways and most importantly:
- By implementing the smart chip technology it helps remove the need for trust at every stage the item takes to reach the end user
- It offers counterfeit protection by re-verifying items at every node
- It improves logistics systems through simplified product tracking
- Smart chip scan assists businesses to acquire current and accurate information on each item. It also helps with quality control
- The upgraded platform will use twin tokens such as VeChain Tokens [VET] and THOR power
- Businesses who hold more VET are given high priority and more rights on the new VeChain THOR blockchain
- Rebranding does not mean re-launching of the main chain, but it will be upgraded to use THOR power and also for the creation of Dapps to do business on the VeChain platform
- VeChain THOR mainly relies on nodes in the blockchain system. Nodes are rewarded with THOR for maintaining the network
- Nodes are differentiated by their maturity, date and amount of VET they hold. They are named Strength, Thunder, Mjolnir, and Thrudheim
- VEN tokens will become obsolete once these are fully converted to VET tokens
The VeChain Foundation names this new big change as Apothesis.
With VeChain Thor set to launch in June as per VeChian CEO Sunny Lu, the organization is accommodating new tie-ups to add to their already impressive list of partnerships.
6. QuantStamp (QSP)
Ethereum (ETH) is one of those blockchain platforms that will survive in the long run. Even as countries are jittery about other cryptos, there seems to be a consensus that Ethereum will get adopted as a tool for enhancing operational efficiency. On top of that, it is through Ethereum that hundreds of highly innovative tokens are hitting the market with each coming day.
Ok, so how does all this connect with the growth potential of Quantstamp (QSP)? Well, it’s simple! Quantstamp has positioned itself as the auditor to new coins, developed through the Ethereum (ETH) smart contracts platform. Essentially, it is designed to check for any security issues, before a coin hits the market. That’s a strong value anchor for Quantstamp.
5. Wabi (WABI)
WaBi is a free floating blockchain based crypto-token with strictly limited issue and exponential transaction growth potential. It is an electronic cryptocurrency which supports Walimai’s anti counterfeit system backed by sales of products protected by Walimai technology. Consumers around the world can purchase products protected by Walimai technology with WaBi.
Walimai has developed a solution that securely links a physical item to its digital representation at a cost that allows us to protect everyday consumer goods such as milk-powder, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, and cosmetics both physically and digitally.
In another words, Walimai puts anti-counterfeit labels on consumer goods so the customers have a confirmable system of proving that good they want to buy is indeed what it claims to be and it has not been corrupted. Then users can buy goods by using WaBi token. Walimai and WaBi are domiciled in China, but their expansion on international level is remarkable.
4. Simple Token (OST)
It’s basically used to power and link niche token economies from mainstream consumer apps and build a network of Branded Tokens with OpenST protocol, which businesses can use to launch Branded Tokens without doing blockchain development of their own.
Until now crypto has only been powering upcoming DAPPs and very few tokens have been looking to integrate the current app infra to blockchain.
So in a way the OpenST protocol could be used to build things like Steem, MobileGo, Cryptokitty, DNT etc. Even one consumer app like Cryptokitty clogged the Ethereum network. ST can be a good solution to add scalability to the Ethereum blockchain with its sidechain solution.
OST is to ETH what ARDR is to NXT. Soon people will realize that sidechains are the solution to scale mainchains like ETH and NXT and sidechain projects coulds blow up.
3. DragonChain (DRGN)
The US based company, Dragon Chain has been gaining quite a bit of attention from both newcomers and veteran crypto investors. Dragon Chainoffers blockchain as-a-service, which allows businesses to implement blockchain technology to secure their databases and execute smart contracts – all without any technical expertise. All business data is retained by the owning company and with a server-less scalable platform, any further development can be done with ease.
In addition to real world use case, Dragon Chai also serves as a platform for exclusive ICOs that can only be participated in by holding the DRGN token. The ICO function of Dragon Chain is projected to be a crucial element as over 200 projects are planned to launch an initial coin offering exclusively through Dragon Chain. To make things better, any upcoming Dragon Chain ICO will accept United States investors and only one KYC (know your customer) is required.
To bring this all together, an incredibly talented team was formed that consists of some very accomplished individuals. The list of team accreditations is too long to include in this article but a noteworthy detail to note, is that the founder of Dragon Chain, Joe Roets – has 20 years experience in software architecture and has been involved with companies such as Overstock, Coinbase, and Walt Disney. Being a United States based company with infrastructure that is completely scalable, an incentivized HODL program, and exclusive ICOs being launched on the platform – Dragon Chain is gearing up to be a promising project.
With launch of the AWS server-less platform right at the end of March, we feel that when the market turns, DRGN is going to fly (or will it rise?)
Usually announcements like this are already priced in, but with the market in its current state, people don’t seem to have jumped on the Dragon’s back with quite as much enthusiasm as they may over the next few weeks.
Dragon is perhaps one of the best long-term hold of these picks as well, so now might be one of the best entry-points you’ll ever get.
Where To Buy DRGN: Kucoin
2. Oyster Pearl (PRL)
Oyster Pearl (PRL) solves exactly the sort of problem you would expect the new generation of cryptocurrencies to solve: ads. Now if you’re using this website without adblock, you’ll notice advertisements within the content and in the sidebar.. Someone has to pay the bills.
PRL eradicates that clutter and intrusiveness of display advertising while ensuring content creators like us don’t get punished for it. PRL uses the IOTA Tangle to store users’ files, and uses a website visitor’s GPU and CPU processing power to ensure those files are maintained on the distributed ledger. It also uses the Ethereum blockchain with its PRL ERC20 tokens to pay out content providers who have integrated this technology on their website.
Yes, I too have a lot of questions about the implementation of this tech over a wide variety of websites.. But internet ad revenue is growing every year, and if PRL can capture a small market of that, the potential is huge.
- Solves a mass consumer problem with two existing technologies, IOTA and Ethereum.
- High volume compared to market cap, which is a good sign for growth.
Where to buy PRL: Kucoin
1. Deep Brain Chain (DBC)
Deep Brain Chain (DBC) Out of all the undervalued cryptocurrencies listed here, this one is the most likely to be big if you’re reading this article a few months from this being published. DBC is a smart contract token based on NEO that’s already listed on KuCoin and soon to be listed on Houbi, a popular Korean exchange. It solves a huge problem in the artificial intelligence space, the training of new computers, and that’s one of the reasons DBC could be so valuable.
What DBC does is create a blockchain based neural network training platform that connects computers across the world. It’s essentially a distributed AI creation network that may or may not be used in the next Skynet.
- Invested in by NEO
- First mover in the artificial intelligence space in cryptocurrencies.
- Team of top scientists and a whitepaper that actually makes sense.
- Constantly shilled on reddit and /biz/
