These recommendations our for keeping the cryptocurrencies coins at least 1 to 3 years.Ethereum (ETH)- Value Jan 2017 = $10.24 | Value Jan 2018 = $770.00 | I expect to see it reach over $2000 before Jan 2019.(2017 statement) Expect the value to grow as high or higher the BTC in the next few years, eventually replace BTC as the main crypto-coin. I still hold to may statements in Jan 2017 - ETH should be the coin to replace BTC and its alternatives for primary coin of use in the future for the next few years. Ripple (XRP) - Value in Jan 2017 = .006 | Value Jan 2018 = $2.25 | If coin reaches more then $10.00 per coin then do not suggest to purchase long term.(2017 statement) - Everyone and their uncle expects this coin to grow in value the next few years, (but I do not think it will grow too high).I expect it to grow to no more than $10.00 per coin, otherwise the exceeding value will defeat what it was designed to be used for by the banking system.The majority of the shares will be controlled by Banks in Japan or affiliates, this should keep the value down to no more then $10.00 per coin in 2018. Bytecoin (BCN) -Value in Jan 2017 = .000058 | Jan 2018 = .0059 | I expect it to be over $10.00 by end of 2018(2017 statement) - This coin is a good investment and will grow, A very secure coin, it is expected to continue to grow each year and become a standard. I still feel the same about this coin - good coin with a good future, expect it to reach over $1.00 in 2018. GameCredits (GAME)- Value in Jan 2017 = .21 | Jan 2018: = $4.17(2017 statement) - This coin is expected to continue to grow, but if company falters on the goal of being the coin for games, so will the value. No change, good coin, expect it to continue to grow 2018. DigiByte (DGB) -Value in Jan 2017 = .001 | Value in Jan 2018 = .08(2017 statement) - Another very secure coin, it is expected to continue to grow each year and become a standard.No change, good coin, expect it to continue to grow 2018. DimeCoin (Dime) Value in Jan 2017 = .000004 | Value in Jan 2018 = .000024(2017 statement) - another very secure coin, it is expected to continue to grow crazy in 2017 and then continue to reach similar values at Ethereum ETH.This is my surprise long-shot coin for 2018 - expect it to jump this year to over $3.00 DigitalNote (XDN) Value in Jan 2018 = .021This is the coin most people say will see a large jump in 2018-2019.I will not go that far, but do believe it is a good coin.This coin will continue to grow with the market and expects to reach over $3.00 in 2018 CreativeCoin (CREA) Value in Jan 2018 = .52This coin will continue to grow with the market and expects to reach over $3.00 in 2018.This coin is designed to track and distribute rights of use for creative media. Ellaism (ELLA) Value in Jan 2018 = $1.09This is a sister coin to ETH that has no per-mine and no dev fees with set supply of 280 million.This coin has a very good chance to reach the same value and use to match or exceed ETH!This is the coin that I wish that I had purchased in early 2017 and a good investment in 2018.
Cryptocurrencies Coins - stable coins:What I mean by stable is they will rise and fall with the market in general, but not become worthless.These cryptocurrencies should rise as the market rises in general and lower in general as a whole.Do not invest in coins that are over $2000 each in value, the value will jump up and down to quickly with market changes. The huge shifts in value could cause a late investor not to recover orginal investment value or freak out and sell during a downward trend.
Ethereum (ETH)- should settle around $2000 per coin by end of 2018, very stable and still a good investment for 2018.
Bitcoin (BTC) - currently over valued in 2018
(Warning - BTC should never be over $5,000 and long term value should decrease as ETH begins to control the market in future years.)
BTC is still the easiest coin to purchase from FIAT currency, because of this the value is misaligned becaue of novice buyers in the market. If you are long term investing it is best to convert to a more stable coin, before the market changes. Suggest ETH for long term investment, and for quick investments try one of my picks above.
LightCoin (LTC) - should be stable
(Warning - LTC should never be over $500 and long term value should decrease as ETH and other better designed coins begin to control the market in future years.)
BlackCoin (BLK) - should be stable and only move or decrease as the general market does.
Dash (DASH) - should be stable and only move or decrease as the general market does.
Ethereum Classic (ETC) - should be stable, expect value to decrease by end of 2018.
Cloak Coin - should be stable, it still has lots of room for investment growth in 2018.
Ripple (XRP) - after the summer of 2018 - should be a stable coin great for transfering value quickly, or holding funds for purchases, but do not expect the value to rise much after that.
