Crypto Trader Ben Armstrong Names Top Altcoin, Says Little-Known Crypto Asset Will Erupt in 2021


Crypto trader and YouTuber Ben Armstrong says he’s expecting a decentralized finance (DeFi) gem that’s flying under the radar to explode this year.

In a new video, Armstrong tells his 548,000 YouTube subscribers that he’s looking at Frontier (FRONT), a little-known DeFi gem that has already inked big partnerships and connections in the nascent sector.


“Frontier is a chain-agnostic DeFi aggregation layer, which is already connected to all, and I do mean all of the major platforms and ecosystems in the DeFi space. Frontier brings essential pieces of DeFi to users across all these platforms. It has gasless transactions, yield farming, NFT acquisition and creation, staking, governance and rewards for app activity.

FRONT has partnerships with Avalanche (AVAX), THORChain (RUNE), Solana (SOL), (YFI), Aave, Algorand (ALGO), Elrond (EGLD), Binance Smart Chain, Cosmos (ATOM), Band Protocol (BAND), Matic or Polygon now, AllianceBlock (ALBT), Kava, Harmony (ONE), Celo, Stafi (FIS), and more. Spoiler: via Stafi, Frontier will enter into the Polkadot ecosystem, meaning it will be used by all its parachains, the whole DOT ecosystem.”

Armstrong also highlights that Frontier has already teamed up with US-based crypto exchange Coinbase to make DeFi accessible to its 43 million users across 100 countries.


“Coinbase Wallet users can also track their complete DeFi portfolio and get smart DeFi notifications, access, exchange tokens, and more, all from one place. Frontier is the magic wand of Coinbase, enabling all things DeFi in a few clicks. And if we jump even further down the rabbit hole, Coinbase’s ecosystem, all the projects backed by Coinbase will be connected to Frontier as it is the DeFi gateway platform.” 

The crypto trader and analyst adds that on top of Coinbase, other major crypto firms are supporting the DeFi project including Binance, Sam Bankman-Fried’s Alameda Research, FTX Exchange, and Coingecko gems.

“Now if we see three major exchanges, Coinbase, Binance and FTX supporting a project, all the biggest hedge funds backing it and every DeFi and scaling ecosystem partnered with it… It’s almost the same as picking the winning lottery ticket knowing you’ll win. The list of partnerships and integrations is absolutely endless. We haven’t seen, and I’m not underselling this here, we haven’t seen another project of this Caliber in DeFi.”

According to Armstrong, Frontier, which is sitting at around $78 million in market capitalization, can potentially print 18x gains and catch up to’s $1.4 billion valuation.

On February 17th, FRONT had a massive run of over 483% from $1.15 to its all-time high of $6.71 in a span of 24 hours. At time of writing, FRONT is trading at $3.39, according to CoinMarketCap.

Blockchain tech will bridge the gap between DApps and enterprises

Blockchain technology is revolutionizing the way we interact, transact and share information, with many experts predicting it will be the most disruptive technology in the next decade. After little structural innovation since the 19th and 20th centuries, decentralization has brought industries such as finance, media and technology closer to transparency, freedom from intermediaries and heightened efficiency.

Traditional enterprises rely on a centralized closed-door structure. In contrast, decentralized finance projects are being built with the ethos that governance should be decentralized and democratic. Transitioning society to decentralized platforms can make many services safer, more accessible and more transparent than ever before. The increasing interest in the space speaks to a collective desire to have more control over critical elements of our lives, especially our finances.

While decentralization helps to solve issues like transparency and efficiency, the lack of a trusted central authority means that decentralized applications, or DApps, must…

Exchange tokens benefit as centralized exchanges battle with DeFi platforms

Fresh institutional and retail investor inflows into the cryptocurrency market have led to bull market conditions for many top tokens from blue-chips like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) to more recently established DeFi projects like AAVE and Synthetix (SNX).

Exchange tokens are another easily overlooked sub-sector of the market but they have been performing exceptionally well in 2021 as increases in trading volumes results in a larger pool of fees to collect when the exchange’s native token is used for settlement. Native exchange tokens are also typically used as the base pair for funding new listings and token buybacks.

Here are three of the top-performing exchange tokens in 2021 that continue to see upside potential as new investors flood into the market.

Similar to the experience of CryptoKitty users in 2017, the decentralized finance community has discovered that the main drawback of increased usage of the Ethereum network is…

Excitement continues to build in the Polkadot ecosystem ahead of the upcoming parachain auctions which will allow the Polkadot network to connect with other established networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

The mechanism by which data is transferred between different blockchains is called “cross-chain message passing-lite,” and is currently being finalized during the Rococo phase of the project’s roadmap.

Once the code has been fully audited it will then be time for Polkadot governance to vote on enabling parachain…

3 key factors that propelled Ethereum to $2,000 for the first time ever

The price of Ether (ETH) is surging past $2,000 with strong momentum while gaining a bit of ground on Bitcoin (BTC) in the last 24 hours. 

There are three key reasons behind the explosive rally of Ether, namely the rapid growth of DeFi, the hype around ETH after the CME futures listing, and the decreasing amount of BTC and ETH on exchanges.

CME futures listing institutional hype

Ether hitting $2,000 for the first time ever follows the launch of CME ETH futures earlier this month, which primarily target institutional investors. 

Prior to the listing, there was a popular narrative that the CME listing would cause the price of ETH to decline significantly, because the CME Bitcoin futures listing in 2017 coincided with the local BTC top at the time.

However, ETH has continuously rallied since, breaking past its all-time high and…
