March 2022 will witness an explosion in these top 10 cryptocurrencies
With war at bay, cryptocurrencies are playing a major role in the finance industry. The most popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin, has had volatile price moves this year. The largest cryptocurrencies are facing high competition from newcomers like Solana. Here are the top 10 cryptocurrencies that will explode in March 2022.
There’s absolutely no surprise whatsoever that Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) still reigns as the world’s most popular cryptocurrency. But the impact of war has dropped its price to the steepest low. However, it still continues to enjoy the advantage of being the first cryptocurrency. It’s more widely accepted than any other digital coin, mainly because it’s been around longer. Bitcoin is even viewed by some investors as a good hedge against inflation since there will never be more than 21 million Bitcoin tokens in circulation.
Solana is a highly functional open source project that banks on blockchain technology’s permissionless nature to provide decentralized finance (Defi) solutions. While the idea and initial work on the project began in 2017, Solana was officially launched in March 2020 by the Solana Foundation with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. It is aiming to kill large cryptocurrency Ethereum.
The key edge for Ethereum is its real-world utility. Its blockchain supports smart contracts that can be used in a wide range of applications. In particular, Ethereum is well-suited for creating non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Ethereum is up 2.34% in the last 24 hours. It has a circulating supply of 119,790,092 ETH coins and the max. supply is not available.
Binance operates the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world. It makes sense, therefore, that Binance Coin (CRYPTO: BNB) is the third-most-popular digital coin on the market. It’s the native coin on the Binance exchange. Investors who pay transaction fees with Binance Coin receive discounts. Each quarter, Binance reduces the supply of digital coins based on trading volume. Over time, these quarterly coin “burns” will remove 100 million coins, which amounts to half of the total supply. These moves are intended to increase the value of Binance Coins.
Among all the stable coins, Tether takes the top spot. All stable coins tie their value to another asset. For Tether, that asset is the US dollar. In theory, Tether is like a “crypto-dollar” that should maintain its value in a similar way as physical US dollars do. However, there has been some controversy about whether or not Tether has sufficient reserves to back all of its digital coins.
Avalanche, along with Solana, is another example of a crypto that has a clear purpose, as opposed to meme coins like Dogecoin, which have no purpose at all. Avalanche is one of the many projects seeking to “unseat Ethereum,” as one of the most widely used blockchain platforms, according to the cryptocurrency exchange Gemini. A Blockchain, part of the technology underlying cryptocurrencies, stores information — like the history of cryptocurrency transactions — in a way that ensures no one individual or group has control of that information. Ethereum is the most-used blockchain network. A US$220 million fund was just launched to fund the development of Avalanche, which boasts of much faster transactions than Ethereum (4,500 transactions per second versus Ethereum’s roughly 13 per second).
In the game Axie Infinity, players buy monsters and have them fight one another to win tokens, which can then be turned back into real money. During the pandemic, many Filipinos turned to play into their full-time jobs.
Meme coins rely on internet hype and therefore it’s near impossible to predict which ones will take off. But the meme coin Samoyedcoin has piqued the interest of Daniel Polotsky, founder of CoinFlip, a Bitcoin ATM company. Like Dogecoin, it bears the face of a cute dog and is intended to be a lighthearted and fun ambassador for Solana.
Fetch.ai is a decentralized machine learning platform for applications like asset trading, according to CoinBase. For example, one of Fetch.ai’s applications helps users of the crypto exchange Uniswap automate their trading. FET is an Ethereum-based token that powers Fetch.ai. It’s gained more than 1,500% in the last year. Fetch.AI is using its technology to back real-world applications, says Ahmed Shabana, managing partner for Parkpine Capital.
USD Coin (USDC) is a type of cryptocurrency that is referred to as a stablecoin. You can always redeem 1 USD Coin for US$1.00, giving it a stable price. On Coinbase, eligible customers can earn rewards for every USD Coin they hold. Each USDC is backed by one dollar or asset with equivalent fair value, which is held in accounts with US-regulated financial institutions.
