This is the one that started it all! Bitcoin has a fascinating history which makes this asset all the more mysterious.

Bitcoin is based on blockchain process, which was followed by vast majority of succeeding cryptocurrencies. Being the oldest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin is currently dominating the market with 40% share. And about its growth rate, well, the charts say that if you were smart or lucky enough to invest in Bitcoin in year 2010, you could have made millions by now. Sigh!
- Ethereum (ETH)
Contrary to Bitcoin, Ethereum is not only a digital currency; rather it is a more sophisticated blockchain project. This is because Ethereum platform offers the developers an option of building their own cryptocurrencies. A growth of 3000% has been witnessed by Ethereum in 2017 which made it the 2nd largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. It is believed by blockchain experts that the market cap of Ethereum can rise significantly by the end of 2018 thus making it one of the best investment options in 2018.
- Ripple (XRP)
Another player which is showing an exceptional performance in the field of cryptocurrency is ripple! An incredible gain of approximately 36,000% was acquired by it in 2017. Though the current worth of one XRP is pretty low in comparison to that of one Bitcoin, but still it has managed to stand as the third largest cryptocurrency according to market cap.

- Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
The launch of BCH is the result of the hard fork that occurred for the management of scalability issue in 2017. Its employment is way more economical and swift compared to Bitcoin. The recent stats have highlighted an impressive performance of BCH, which depicts its bright chances of escalation in the cryptocurrency world.
Although Ethereum holds a noteworthy position in the top rankings of cryptocurrencies, a promising blockchain platform named EOS has been introduced, which is aimed at dethroning Ethereum as the key infrastructure for decentralized apps. This platform was established for surpassing a low number of Ethereum transactions per second, which according to the founders of EOS was not high enough for supporting the future ‘internet of things’.
Nothing is perfect in this imperfect world and same is true for the Bitcoin’s technology. Litecoin was created in 2011 for overcoming the limitations in the Bitcoin’s technology. It has been able to attract a number of investors due to its close association with Bitcoin. A huge 8000% growth mark in 2017 makes it a cryptocurrency to look up in 2018.
Another contender in this race is Stellar, which is a blockchain solution to move money in a quick and reliable manner across the borders, at a much economical rate. It has grown by 29,400% in 2017 and is expected to boom further in 2018.
Cardano stands out from the rest in the list since it is a decentralized public blockchain and cryptocurrency project, developed solely on academic research. It is undeniably a bright option for those investors who can foresee its worth.
TRON is another capable platform for building and storing applications and executing the smart contracts founded on its blockchain. The worth of TRON is increasing persistently and has big headroom for profits in future.
IOTA is a ground-breaking cryptocurrency, formed explicitly for the concept of the Internet of Things. It is the best time for making investments in this emerging platform, since it is capable of becoming the leading cryptocurrency in the years to come.
