Altcoin Daily Outlines Top 5 Crypto Assets Poised To Rise Exponentially in 2021


Altcoin Daily founder and crypto trader Austin Arnold is naming five crypto assets that he believes are gearing up to print exponential gains this year.

Arnold tells his 469,000 YouTube subscribers that he is keeping a close watch on Synthetix (SNX) after big venture capitalist firms poured money into the derivatives trading platform.


“Both Coinbase Ventures and Paradigm have invested over $12 million into Synthetix DeFi (decentralized finance) platform. It’s actually three prominent venture capital firms bought tokens directly from the DAO’s (decentralized autonomous organization) treasury. This is huge. We’re seeing actual accumulation from these major venture capitalist players of Synthetix.” 

Coming in at number four is smart contract platform Cardano (ADA), which is marching towards full decentralization according to Arnold.

“Cardano is now 80% decentralized with an ETA (estimated time arrival) of 100% decentralization on March 31st. That is 50 days away, moving right along.”

The next coin on Arnold’s list is Litecoin (LTC). The crypto trader cites another video where he offers his price prediction for Litecoin

“Litecoin could easily have 20x from the start of the year. At the beginning of this year, around January 2nd, Litecoin was between $130 and $140. A 20x from something that was around $137 is $2,740 per LTC. Things could get crazy.”

Grabbing the second spot on Arnold’s list is decentralized exchange Uniswap (UNI), which he says has massive potential in the next 12 months.

“Uniswap just became the first trading platform to process over [$100] billion in volume, an exciting milestone for DeFi. With metrics like this right here, we don’t have to guess. We’re seeing the people choose decentralized exchanges. This is when retail is just starting to enter.”

The number one coin on Arnold’s radar is Stellar (XLM) after USDC (USD Coin), a top stablecoin, landed on the blockchain of the payments protocol.

“USDC’s Stellar launch comes after credit card giant Visa revealed in December it would connect its global payments network of 60 million onto USDC. Since then, the number of USDC tokens in circulation has doubled and as more people use the stablecoin, especially as the millions of Visa merchants use the stablecoin, they don’t want to pay those Ethereum congestion fees. ‘We want USDC to be as broadly adopted as possible,’ says Circle. ‘Stellar as a blockchain is designed for payments.’ So they’re going to Stellar.”

BlackRock has started to ‘dabble’ in crypto, says CIO

Rick Rieder, chief investment officer at BlackRock Financial Management, hinted that the firm ha already invested a percentage of its portfolio into crypto.

In an interview with CNBC’s Squawk Box on Wednesday, Rieder said BlackRock — with more than $8.6 trillion in assets under management — has “started to dabble a bit” into crypto investments. The chief investment officer described the volatility of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) as “extraordinary” but acknowledged that many investors were looking for “places that appreciate under the assumption that inflation moves higher as debts are building.”

“Holding some portion of what you hold in cash in things like crypto seems to make some sense to me, but I wouldn’t espouse a certain allocation or target holding,” said Reider. “My sense is the technology has evolved and the regulations have evolved to the point where a number of people find it…

Price analysis 2/17: BTC, ETH, DOT, ADA, XRP, BNB, LTC, BCH, LINK, XLM

Bitcoin (BTC) is gradually gaining ground on gold, the traditional store of value. Data shows that one ounce of gold can only buy 0.0352 Bitcoin as of Feb. 17, the lowest amount of BTC ever. This shows that Bitcoin has been rewarding its investors much more than gold.

Bitcoin has massively outperformed gold over various time frames. Even if the latest one-year data is considered, Bitcoin’s risk-adjusted return is 270%, while gold’s is only 24% as of Dec. 28, 2020.

The result further skews hugely in favor of Bitcoin if longer time frames of four years or eight years are compared.

In the past few years, Bitcoin has matured as an asset class. During the previous bull run in 2017, Bitcoin’s 60-day volatility was at 32%. But in the current bull phase, Bitcoin has recorded lower volatility at 14.25%. Analysts believe that as institutional…

Tesla, Bitcoin and the crypto space: The show Musk go on? Experts answer

While 2020 was a significant year for Bitcoin (BTC), the just-begun year of 2021 is already full of great surprises. On Feb. 8, Bitcoin’s price jumped by almost $3,000 in minutes, then it surged 20% in 24 hours — all due to the news of Elon Musk’s Tesla allocating $1.5 billion of its balance sheet to BTC. 

The same week, the oldest bank in the United States, Bank of New York Mellon, announced plans to hold, transfer and issue Bitcoin. Mastercard is also planning to support cryptocurrencies in 2021 for its almost 1 billion users. And SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, commonly referred to as “Crypto Mom” in the crypto community, even underlined the urgent necessity for regulatory clarity due to the recent events in the space.

With PayPal, Tesla, Mastercard, BNY Mellon and others entering the cryptosphere, isn’t it becoming more clear than ever…

US charges three North Korean hackers over crypto attacks and WannaCry ransomware

On Wednesday, the United States Department of Justice announced charges against three North Korean hacker. 

Making the announcement, Assistant Attorney General John Demers condemned the North Korean program, the most famous branch of which is Lazarus Group. Demers said:

“North Korea’s operatives, using keyboards rather than guns, stealing digital wallets of cryptocurrency instead of sacks of cash, are the world’s leading bank robbers.”

With a country largely sequestered from the international economy, North Korea’s hacking program has been a critical source of revenue. Many have linked hacking income from sources like the WannaCry malware and crypto exchange Coincheck with the nuclear weapons program. Demers elaborated:

“The DPRK cyber threat has followed the money and turned its revenue generation sights on the most cutting edge aspects of international finance, including through the theft of cryptocurrency from exchanges and other financial institutions.”

North Korea’s hacking program has been the subject of extensive…
