Over the course of the past 24 months, we have seen the crypto market soar to amazing financial heights as well as scale down to record lows. However, since the start of 2019, there seems to be a renewed sense of optimism that has engulfed the crypto sector at large. So, without any further ado, let’s take a look at some of the lesser known altcoins that have performed exceedingly well over the past few months.
(i) Binance Coin:
When talking about some of the well-established coins that have surged this year, Binance’s native token offering ‘BNB’ immediately comes to mind. Released back in 2017, the digital asset has experienced a surge of more than 300% since its inception. Also, from a technical standpoint, we can see that the “speed and scalability” of BNB makes it a direct threat to other premier assets such as ETH, EOS, etc.
Despite the top-50 altcoin experiencing its fair share of ups and downs over the past year or so, the project has been able to foster a decent following since the start of 2019. In terms of RVNs financial performance this year, we can see that the digital currency has surged by a staggering 387%.
(iii) Basic Attention Token:
Brave Browser’s BAT cryptocoin has witnessed a massive increase in consumer interest over the course of the past 2-3 months. This is primarily because the project recently announced integrative support for a number of high-profile websites such as The Guardian, The Washington Post, and Vimeo. As a result of this, the price of BAT has increased from $0.12 to around $0.42 (at press time).
(iv) Enjin Coin:
ENJ is a popular cryptocurrency that is currently being used by gamers across the world to facilitate their in-game transactions. In fact, it may come as a surprise to many but Enjin Coin has a history of outperforming Bitcoin — primarily because the currency’s native framework consists of a number of unique DApps that can be used to create a variety of blockchain games, custom tokens, and smart contracts from the ground up.
From a financial perspective, ENJs value has increased by over 382 percent since the start of 2019.
(v) Crypto.com Chain-Token:
CRO is a relatively unknown asset when compared to its crypto counterparts, however, when looking at the performance of this token we can see that it has increased from $0.02 to around $0.08 at press time (thereby showcasing a surge of nearly 300%).
HOLO offers its customers with a blockchain framework that addresses many of the scalability issues that are quite prominent with other big name projects such as ETH, BTC, etc. Not only that, but HOLO is also backed by big-name players such as Mozilla and Deloitte — something, which many believe has helped spur the price of the project’s associated HOT token by a whopping 188 percent (since this time last year).
