Not sure why a serious thread on this hasn't caught on. Probably because everyone already runs sub-14 + $350K + hot wife. For the rest of us, I'm thinking:
"The Chinese Ethereum"
High market cap, pretty stable, based on ETH. The founder has ties to the Chinese president, apparently.
$87 right now, I think $200 to $2000 is realistic over the next year.
Lots of reasons to buy very soon - Google "Zclassic fork". You'll actually get free BitCoin Private in a month or so when it forks, which could make holders a lot of money fast.
$100 right now. Can see $1000 over the next few months. Free BTC Private is a huge bonus, that'll probably spike to $1000 or so too.
This is probably the highest market cap crypto right now that's only $0.06. Biggest upside, slightly more risky, but the technology is proven, been around, and fastest UXTO crpyto in the world. Team has big social media presence and good reputation.
I actually think this could go up 100x in the next year as funds flow from BTC/ETH to smaller cryptos.
4.) Lumen / Verge
Lumping these together but its worth looking into the details. They're low price, more risky, but huge upside. Verge is breaking headlines lately for good and bad.
This is actually the 2nd largest cryptocurrency right now. Only $2. I would expect the world's 2nd largest crypto to be worth more, naively. Top candidate for CoinBase to add in the upcoming months, which will cause a spike and profit for holders. This should probably be #1 on my list for that reason alone.
Wild Card: BlackCoin. Also under $1.00 right now, I don't see it as a major player but it's doing well and seems legit.
The best advice I can give is to diversify your cryptocurrency investments. Would be keen to hear your thoughts.
