2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: List undervalued tokens or coins to load on: February 19, 2021, 03:54:33 PM
I plan on converting some of my BTC to smaller coins or tokens.
I have converted some to LTC when around $175, but looking to diversify further. been a little out of touch last few years, and willing to spend some time researching some coins/tokens now.
Thanks

low risk

Energy Web Token - huge ecosystem, crazy adoption, tier 1 and staking coming soon.

high risk

DARK (stex exchange) - launching polkadot testnet and releasing liquidity to UNI / 1INCH anytime.

Energy Web Token - Green energy macro trend is in full swing. EWT's 120+ enterprise consortium is going to blow this up. Nobody is paying attention to it... all eyes on DeFi etc.. EWT is way bigger then people realize. http://energyweb.live/projects

0.2 BTC in hand.. One Altcoin to invest? Please share your thoughts.

Energy Web Token - amazing use case, largest enterprise consortium in the world. Staking and tier 1 exchanges coming. Everyone is looking at defi and whatever else but green energy is the leading macro trend for the next 10 years.

Some Defi Coins play very well on crypto market. Is it good time to invest in Polkadot Coin?

DOT brings interoperability which is very important. Also building chains with substrate is easy... there's a few vids of Gavin giving a talk and ripping out a blockchain in 20 minutes. The bet against "one coin to rul them all" and developer friendliness is enough to ensure a bright future. The tokenomics revolving around parachain loans are good as well.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Which Polkadot projects do you think has the best usecases? on: February 15, 2021, 10:52:03 AM
I'm trying to fill my bag with projects built on Polkadot so I'm just researching now which coins I should consider and follow.

Thoughts?

Energy Web Token (EWT) - If you look at early Polkadot documentation they describe the possibility for Energy Web to run a relay chain... not a parachain... a relay chain. This along with all of it's partners and projects makes it top cotender imo. However note that they stated they won't launch a relay chain until it's needed.. they're not going to build it for hype, only for utility. Hint: they're going to need something to scale.

OCEAN - Data marketplaces are a new asset class. Not much else to say OCEAN will be huge.

Robonomiic (XRT) - Millions of IoT devices are going to need a mechanism for trust, communication and data transmission.

Dark Dot (D4RK) - Chains can always benefit from privacy whether for tx, mixing, data storage, e-commerce or things we haven't yet thought of. This low cap will offer interop privacy services in DOT ecosystem.

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Privacy coins will be next trend? Your top privacy coins. on: February 12, 2021, 01:05:29 PM
Privacy coins that is against the goal of the government? This is really hard to maintain honestly since some government are making pressure to other crypto projects but I hope that they can survive the pressure from the government since the real purpose of cryptocurrency is to remain anonymously. Base on the list, Zcash is the best option for me but I'm still looking for a more private crypto that is so easy to convert into fiat money.

This is what I'm saying with interop. Say you have a blockchain that can manage user memberships. You can KYC and prove over blockchain who has valid membership at any given time. Then you could use d4rk or some chain that provides privacy services to color privacy on the transactions and nfts describing the membership status and activity. So when the user logs in they just need to sign their address. The d4rk colored membership interops with the membership chain to prove that the membership is valid - boom user has access to the service. So you can kyc and follow the rules while still remaining anonymous. Then you get both... privacy yet conformance to some rules. Again I think there's a place for pure, private p2p tx. But bigger than that... I think there's a potential for privacy at scale for all daily activity that works in concert with legislation / rules.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Privacy coins will be next trend? Your top privacy coins. on: February 12, 2021, 12:48:48 PM
Hi, what you think about privacy coins .It wille be next global trend beacuse of governements infiltration ?

My top is:
1 Moner
2 Zcash
3 Horizon
4 Haven
5 Secret
6 Beam


I think the next evolution of privacy coins will allow non-private projects to use privacy services to privatize their primary use case. NFTs > Private NFTs... DATA > Private Data... E-Commerce > Private E-Commerce. etc. Privacy is about more thant just discrete P2P. Given that, I think the future lies in interoperability and chains that can figure out how to do it well. Secret is cool and a good step with dapp deployment but it seems dapps will need to deploy on their chain. Instead I'm looking for projects that can interop with existing apps and color tokens / tx with privacy. D4RK seems to be headed in that direction with their move to DOT. Currently they're working on 2 services e-commerce storefronts and private ipfs. but it's early to tell exactly what the end game looks like.

That being said privacy chains that just do transactions and do it well have a place. Monero is leading the pack (last I checked) but I heard although difficult... tx can be traced. So hopefully things on that front can improve.

Another note here... I think a proper solution for self sovereign identities is needed before we can get true privacy and true control over our data. With it you could say KYC while still maintaining control of your data. I think self sovereignty and data ownership goes hand in hand with privacy yet we don't really talk about it much. I think it'll be a big theme this year given all the adoption coming.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Cvc,Cardano or Polkadot? on: February 12, 2021, 12:26:02 PM
Question about  investing in Cvc, Cardano or polkadot.

I have a goal in 2 years to get a plot of land..  im saving 200 a week in a saving account..   im looking to place 1000 initially into one of the above cryptocurrency with an additional 50 dollars invested a week in it.

I won't be day trading.. just a somewhat safe investment that will increase with time.

Any suggestions?
I'm also open to other ideas.

What I like about these is that they haven't had a rapid growth recently that always makes me think of a bubble.   And the value is stable with an upward trend on them.

my alternative recommendation would be EWT. it has actual utility and is at present undervalued at ~12$ imo. the coins you're mentioning need adoption before utility drives the price. what you're seeing now is speculation ahead of the potential. to be fair they're all good projects with a lot happening development and project wise... if you had to choose just one of the three I'd say DOT - it's lower on the rankings and has higher staking rewards. I don't think Cardano or Polkadot are going anywhere so why not diversify. not financial advice - dyor.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Can Dogecoin reach 1$ soon? on: February 11, 2021, 11:29:57 AM
The dogecoin has already pumped up twice with the help of popular persons like Elon Musk, now that many people are trying to invest in Dogecoin, expecting to have another madness on doge. So what if, Elon Musk and other popular experts stopped supporting this meme coin, is there are a possibility that Dogecoin reaches 1$ on its own?

Well, like what I've said, this is just a meme coin, no utility, no usage but what do you think will be the realistic value of Dogecoin for the upcoming years?

You said it yourself, no utility. So it's utility is reliant on support / meme. In otherwords who knows... 1$ is just as likely as $0 (not zero but you get my drift). I'd rather rely on utility then hype cycles tbh.. utility can be more easily measured / predicted then hype... makes for more comfortable investments.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: List of projects that solves a real problem. on: February 11, 2021, 11:15:12 AM
So many projects have good use cases but some are juts not needed to be in crypto space, meaning people or investors don't have interest in such projects, I've seen devs abandoning a project to build another from scratch because people don't have interest in the first project

Agreed., I'm a big fan of looking for consortium and foundation projects. Why? because typically the projects are built to the specification of the consortium / foundation members. You get adoption before even launching.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: List of projects that solves a real problem. on: February 11, 2021, 11:02:44 AM
So how does releasing a crypto help further this project. Does the project hold a certain amount of crypto and as the value goes up they can use this money to further the project or is at as results of users on the blockchain or some other technology. Also, what causes the value of the crypto to go up is it something this project does or is it supply versus demand of the buyers and seller of the crypto. I'm not disagreeing with you as I am new and I am trying to understand.

If you think of green assets - solar panels, electric vehivles, smart meters, charging stations. It's too distributed for energy corps to effectively manage / profit from. Also some of those assets are owned by consumers. So Energy Web runs an (EVM - Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible chain. It runs on proof of authority so that it's fast enough for IoT devices etc. It's actually operated by huge corps validators.energyweb.org. Anyway so it's basically a faster ETH with some tweaks. First there's purpose built energy services built into the chain called EW-DOS which lets corporates do things like sell green certificates, provide grid flexibility, peer to peer trading etc...  anyway that's the high level concept.

You asked about what will drive the price... scarcity. EWT is needed for gas and to pay for all services. Theres a validator layer and a utility layer. The validator layer is run by "validator nodes" energy companies that need the token for services. The utility layer is run by "urility nodes" that offer services like decentralized IDs, messaging service, file storage etc..

On the validator side the node operators need the token for utility. So the token's they mint have incentive to be spent not dumped on exchange. And the services they buy (from utility layer) have to be done a year in advance using an escrow model. So say I have a wind turbine that I want to sell certificates with... I have to by my EWT today for the whole year. Then as I use services the EWT is released to the utility nodes that rendered the service.

Staking is also coming which will further dry up supply. The way I think it will work is that we can stake against utility nodes so that as they get paid for services we get a percentage. Should be in the next few months but no date confirmed on staking start.

Last point is that because energy web is an EVM any dapp developer can launch something on it. They have a wasm compiler which means millions of devs can code smart contracts without knowing solidity. There's going to be millions of energy assets on chain this year. I believe there will be an energy dapp run similar to DeFi in the coming years. So this "general" dapp development will provide further scarcity / gas fees and invester awareness.

Here's a good post on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/EnergyWeb/comments/l7731j/why_energy_web_is_bigger_then_you_think/

OP: Projects that solve real problems...

replies.. low cap shills Grin

seriously check our energy web token. green energy assets need blockchain to properly scale. look at their partners https://energyweb.live/partners and projects https://energyweb.live/projects they're even working alongside Google and Microsoft as part of the EnergyTag foundation which is bringing hourly energy certificates to maket. check https://energytag.org and scroll down to partners section. it's a low risk future top 20 project. dyor but don't wait too long before looking into it.

What kind of investor are you? you are looking for a reliable, safe and profitable investment. I think this is a great platform for that.

As I know, ICH supports inventors and offers investment opportunities as good as protecting their rights.ICH aims to allow inventors to register their ideas as patents, especially in developing countries in Asia and Africa.

ICH describes itself as a digital currency that aims to support inventors and preserve their rights.
Ideachain is a start-up company based in Turkey. Founded in 2020 by Mohamad Rafiq Trabulsi, an entrepreneur and a prominent investor in the field of blockchain and digital currencies.

Ideachain top three concerns at the moment are:

International: Inventions will become universal and without any fear of copyright theft.
Quality: Strong network, high protection, and the easiest way to market.
Support: 24/7 support and fast response time.

How Idea Chain Coin will Help Inventors?
One of the most prominent problems facing the inventor is the absence of marketing skills. An inventor might be great at inventing but that inventor may not know how marketing works.

To deal with this gap, the inventor needs a trustworthy entity that can provide marketing advisory to market the invention.

The inventor also needs a specialized legal authority that can legally assist the inventor in drafting the inventionís applications.

More importantly, the inventor should take steps to keep his copyright to the invention, especially, when drafting contracts with businessmen on the other hand.

The innovator must be nurtured and provided with all types of support.A dedicated organization can be hired for proper support and guidance.

This is important to encourage young people with innovative ideas and talents. This way, innovators will start trusting investors and businessmen.

All inventors have problems communicating their invention to the world due to the limited capabilities, efforts, and supporters of these unique topics.

Idea Chain Coin comes to provide smart solutions to innovators who need guidance. We support them and stand behind them to turn their dream into reality.

Idea Chain Coin is an innovative platform that has been designed to support and facilitate innovators. This unique service is for those who do not want to lose their invention to idea thieves.

The project was launched at the start of 2020 . We are now enlisting Idea Chain Coin on cryptocurrency exchanges.

 Ideachain coin has already been listed on many renowned cryptocurrency exchanges. Ideachain teams are now looking for ways to make partnerships with patent registration organizations worldwide.

The groundbreaking patent registration platform of ICH will be launched soon. The response So far from the innovators and technology enthusiast community is overwhelming. Besides making it secure, Ideachain team  wants to make it valuable for the masses.

And as we say that ICH is a digital currency that supports inventors and preserves their rights with smart and innovative solutions.


Tokenomics :
The total token supply is 55 million
Token allocation can be seen below and in the pie chart :
25M: Public Allocation
10M: Marketing and Partnerships
5M: Development
5M: Teamís Allocation
10M: To be voted for in 2023 (to either allocate to burn).

I think this is a great opportunity to start your investment.They are looking for inspirational innovators that will change the world.

Nothing about this sounds reliable, safe or profitable. "One of the most prominent problems facing the inventor is the absence of marketing skills." - before you buy into this ask yourself... how many inventors do you know. Now how many have this problem. Probably your answer is zero. There are better projects with better teams that are solving actual problems. DYOR but I'd stay faaaaaar away from this. 
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: List of projects that solves a real problem. on: February 09, 2021, 11:44:44 PM
Feel free to add to the list.

After a lot of research, I figured I would make a list of projects that actually solves some of the key problems we see in our daily lives. There are thousands of crypto projects out there among all the meme coins, scam coins, and dead projects that deserve to get some spotlight.


Bitcoin
The KING of crypto. First mover, store of value.

Ethereum
Smart contracts and a huge network of projects build on top of it.

Chainlink
Decentralized Oracle Network.

Basic Attention Token
Removes the middleman between advertisers and publishers

DIVI Project
"Crypto Made Easy" - Eases the entry barrier to cryptocurrencies, making it as simple to use as possible. (I.E: Send money straight from your bank account to the DIVI wallet).

Monero
Privacy, plain and simple.



These are just a few... Feel free to add your own!  Wink

EWT - Distributed Green Energy

Green energy assets like solar panels, batteries, wind turbines pose a problem for energy companies. They're decentralized. So how are the likes of Shell, Eneco, Tepco etc.. going to make money if their assets are distributed. Blockchain to the rescue. Energy Web Chain is basically a faster Ethereum (PoA EVM) with built in tools purpose built for the energy sector. They have energy exchange for selling / buying green energy certificates. Flex toolkits for grid balancing. Gaurantees of origin etc... Not to mention because it's EVM it's open to any dapp the energy eco system wants to deliver. CiveQ is building something similar to Efforce on it. Share&Charge is building certifiable green charging stations on it. There's going to be peer to peer trading. Green blockchains etc... list goes on. Not to mention it was purpose built by a foundation of energy companies. Check out their comunity site at https://energyweb.live for a quick look at their partners and projects. It's insane.

D4RK - Privacy For Everything

They're working toward building privacy services on the DOT ecosystem. Not just private transactions... privacy services. The implication is bigger then what we know now as privacy chains. So what does this mean?? Well the low hanging fruit they're working now is private storefronts and ipfs clusters. BUT because they're going to be on DOT and it's interoperable... it doesn't end there. What about private data marketplace for OCEAN so you could sell you data for profit without divulging your info. Private self sovereing id so you can authenticate for a service (they gaurentee your registered) but they don't have to know your name or your habits. Say at a local gym for example. Privacy can be at mass scale in a way that is still bound to rules. Say you don't know who I am but scanning my card proves I'm 21 and legal citizen - so you let me into the pub. No name, address, height, gender... nada. This is a huge opportunity D4RK and obviously private transactions are still a thing Wink

OCEAN - New Data Asset Class

They're creating a new assets class - data marketplaces. Their compute to data functionality means you can run computations on data sets without ever having access to the raw datasets. Who cares?? well for one, auto manufacturers. Specifically Daimler (Mercedes) was the first. Why? Consider the amount of data needed for AI. Tesla currently has the data advantage in the self driving car space because they have all the time on the road. But what if auto firms could share their raw data without ever having to give up proprietary information or algorithms. That's what OCEAN can let you do

Those are my top three. EWT because green energy macro trend. D4RK because nobody sees it coming and it can eventually privatize all of your daily transactions. OCEAN because data is the new oil.

last one would be a decentralized identification chain to help unbanked and undocumented. something like SOV but personally not a big fan.

I'm gumshed, dev with the Movement DAO and Director of Greenpoint Land Reserves, a Sphere of the DAO. I totally get your apprehension. From the outside, I could see how things look to be DOA but that is far from the case. I will try to break it down.  Cheesy...

Thanks for the response and info! I will take the time to read through the resources given my initial hesitation. Not a likely speculator as it's not in my interest wheelhouse BUT I do think the ethos is important. I wish you and community success moving forward.

We are in a massive bullrun - and some low market caps are determined to MOON! Cool

Here's my personal favorite that's under the radar. In my opinion even buying only $20 could turn out very profitable


The Movement
DAO from 2017. decentralized borderless collaboration for real-world value creation
MVT / MDT / ACRE

MVT Total Supply: 3,000,000 (3 million)
Current market cap: $127,000 (after a 100x market cap is only $12M)
Current price: $0.042
- Uniswap
- Coingecko
- Website
- Bitcointalk
- Blog
- MVT Farming


I'd be careful about MVT folks. Being it's a DOA you're relying on network effect and engagement to provide utility / scarcity. Check the "spheres" where they post work convos... last post in most active thread is like 8 months ago. Twitter has 39 followers. If they had a board pushing the narrative and some partnerships I'd be more intrigued but this is relying strictly on community. Which again, could be amazing but this group seems to be without direction / vision and most importantly... traction. DYOR but this would not be for me.


Bud yeah, DYOR is always essential. I see Twitter has https://twitter.com/movementdao 848 followers and reddit has https://www.reddit.com/r/movementdao 3.1k members but most of the core member activity is on the discord and not on these channels. The Bitcointalk thread is quite big as it has constant activity (although at times it was slow indeed) since August 2017 and is ongoing. Living on and on. Development has just recently been accelerating to new heights.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2068554.msg55987627#msg55987627

The most interesting sphere right now is the Greenpoint Land Reserve (GLR) - A nonprofit arm (registered organization in Wyoming) of the Movement that works in the best interests of the DAO, building the first of its kind, DAO controlled land trust.

I agree with you this is a community project in the truest sense of the word, it's one of the oldest fully grassroots DAOs of 2017 that had zero funding. All it is building has come 100% out of community efforts. This is why I like it so much. It's pure grassroots power that is operating over the long-term and set up to create real world value. I have a lot of faith in its spirit. MVT is so undervalued that having a small position in it makes a lot of sense. There's little too lose to hold a couple USD worth of MVT.

I track my MVT on Blockfolio
Just my 2 cents here!


I'm such a dope I misread their twitter following / followers lol sorry about that... I must need more coffee. thanks for the follow up and information. I'll dig further to have a gander. the misread on twitter and lack of activity on their spheres was enough to provide red flag. knowing there's more happening in discord etc is definitely a better sign then my first impression. likely still not for me from an "investment" standpoint but I always want these grassroots projects to succeed - it's the heart of crypto.
