Default What are your top crypto coins for 2018

Just thought it would be fun to start a thread where we can post our top coins for 2018. I'm sure we can look back on this in a year and hopefully have made enough to buy a few cases of our favorite cardboard product .

Here are mine

1.) Quantstamp ($.42 cents)
2.) Nebulas ($9.39)
3.) Kyber Network ($3.33)
4.) Modum ($5.54)

Don't go with me, I've hit 3 losers in the last two months.

I picked up Dogecoin at .009ish, it's dropped to .005ish

Linda Coin at some really low number, and now it's about half that number. Seems like I bought at .005 and now it's around .003

Verge, I'm still holding onto it, I believe. It's around .09 right now, I bought at .10.

I didn't do too bad on ripple, made around 200 all said and done. Sold the last when it was around 2.51.

I've only invested $75 though, currently have around 250 total.

Tron ($0.05), Stellar Lumens ($0.49), and Ripple ($1.15) are my favorite buys right now. I've done extensive research on these companies and have pretty substantial investments in each of the three. I'll let you go where your heart leads you but I hope to look back at this thread down the road and say, "I told you so." I purchase in Coinbase and transfer to GDAX, then deposit into Binance where I exchange my BTC for the altcoins of my choosing.

My main three are Tron, KIN, and Rupee. KIN has a huge supply, but is going to have a lot of users (KIK), and is only .00034 cents right now. I'm hoping it gets to a penny. TRX also a big supply, but I don't think a coin burn is out of the question. And Rupee is a low supply, targeting a big Asian market. That one could be big. Only .33 right now. With a circulating supply of 25,000,000 and total 80,000,000. Less than Ethereum

How exactly do you deposit with USD and then buy altcoins? I'm very new to this but am very intrigued...

Depends on the altcoin you want. First create a coinbase account, and from there you can use a debit card to buy bitcoin or ethereum. Then you send your bitcoin to a deposit code on a various exchange (I like binance, but they don't sell all the coins I want). Then you can use the bitcoin to purchase the altcoins. There are a lot of videos out there. I'd start out with 50-100 bucks and try and figure it out. Then when you get the hang of it, you can do more

Haven't all these coins seem to have peaked around the first week of January and it's been a slow bleed every since?

Digibyte (DGB), Stellar (XLM), Verge (XVG), and Ardor (ARDR) are the coins I have been adding for long term holds. I think Siacoin could be a good long term hold as well.

I'm a crypto newb, so those are just the ones I focused on in trying to find a good project/coin that is cheap and has a chance at big gains. Hopefully Digibyte is it, thats where I have added the most!

I'm a crypto noob butt have managed dedicated servers over a decade. Ive been thinking of buying/selling coins or possibly mining them.... I haven't made up my mind yet. Too busy with kids and swing trading on Robin Hood.

There's no money to be made in mining unless you have a ton of cash to invest in infrastructure or a bunch of servers just sitting around collecting dust.

The cost of electricity far outweighs the money you'll make on coin unless you've got a massive infrastructure.

Thats not true at all. the rig i have in my house currently makes me about $500 per month and only cost me $40 per month in electricity.

I don't buy it. You'd need to be hashing at 20+ TH/s to be bringing in $500/month in coin and that's assuming power is free.

There's no miner that gets anywhere close to 20TH/s unless you've got some custom rig. I think the S9 is somewhere around 14TH/s, which based on the current difficulty would net you $375 before power. At almost 1400w that's going to cost you $100/m in power at $0.07 per kwh.

Now, your profitability significantly decreases as more hashing power joins the network so the usefulness of your miner severely decreases. If you did buy the S9 or something equivalent you spent between $3-4k and you'll likely never make that money back.

There's no chance he's making $500/m profit and only paying $40/m in electricity. It's not mathematically possible even with commercial electricity rates. Unless he's engineered his own ASIC mining rig that's somehow super low wattage while still hashing at almost 20TH/s.

He either guesstimated or just totally made up those numbers but in each case they're pretty far from the truth. The hard truth that people don't want to hear or accept is that residential mining isn't profitable for people without deep pockets and heavy investments in infrastructure.

He could have a couple S9s going in a rental with a fixed electricity cost. Other than that, most likely not. SIA on the newer A9(?) Blake 2b miner is still pulling good $/day I believe.

Funny anecdote about that. back in late 2013 or early 2014 my buddy and I decided to get into the mining game. We had 2 butterfly labs (RIP) miners and had 5 open air setups each running dual R9 290x cards.

We found a local rental that was a fixed price ($350/m) that covered all utilities we paid cash for 12mo up front. You could tell this landlord was totally new to this because he was a young kid and had no idea what he was getting himself into.

We were running 3-4k watts between all the machines with almost 100% uptime and everything was monitored remotely. The things were loud as hell and the guy must not have appreciated what we were doing (the other people in the house complained about the noise also) because he tried everything in the book to get us kicked out but his lease contract was so short and simple that there was nothing he could do. Needless to say he didn't allow us to renew our lease LOL.

We had somewhere in the range of 100 BTC that we sold around $800ea it's a shame because we were convinced it peaked man were we dumb

BTC, stellar, ltc.

I'm weary of touching much else short term due to incoming regulation and the SEC cracking down on a lot of these fly by nights.

if you do research, right now. Cardano ADA is basically Crypto 3.0 and can scale. It builds off Bitcoin and Etherium (smart contracts) but again is built to scale.

At $0.22 right now it will one day hit $5 to $7 its a long hold should hit those prices in 10 to 18 Months.

This is just my opinion based on my experience and research.
