The 5-star coins

  • Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum may be a newcomer that has risen through the ranks because of its superior technology and skill to make “smart contracts.”

Approximate market cap: $200 billion

Year founded: 2015

Cost per transaction: $10

Return in 2020: 470

Score. ★★★★★

Ether, the cryptocurrency on the Ethereum blockchain, is a technical evolution of Bitcoin that is expected to grow even faster. Ethereum works on the basis of a series of contracts, rather than as ‘digital gold’. This makes it a system like Google Wallet or Apple Pay, where transactions can be approved or delayed based on real-world events. For example, online buyers and sellers can set up a transaction to take place only if the post office independently confirms delivery of the goods.

  • Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is the most widely adopted cryptocurrency. It is not the most technologically advanced, but it continues to lead the way.

Approximate market capitalization: $920 billion

Year founded: 2009

Cost per transaction: $15

Return in 2020: 309

Score. ★★★★★

The first successful cryptocurrency continues to lead the way. Bitcoin, with its first mover advantage, didn’t just get the first name recognition. It has also become the de facto cryptocurrency of choice for mainstream investors. Small investors can buy as little as $1 (or as much as “hoddle”) using the services of Square (NYSE:SQ) and Paypal (NASDAQ:PYPL). Institutional investors, on the other hand, can use the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) to trade multi-million dollar futures.

Bitcoin is also very sensitive to macroeconomic trends, and the most recent downturn in the US stock market halved the currency’s value. And if a weak economic recovery or a mutated strain of the new coronavirus becomes apparent in 2021, Bitcoin could easily lose 50-80% of its value. However, for those considering investing in cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin remains the most liquid option – it is the highest valued and must-have currency to hold in 2021.

  • XRP (XRP)

XRP is a centralised cryptocurrency that aims to eliminate the high cost of interbank transfers.

Approximate market capitalisation: $2.4 billion

Year founded: 2012

Cost per transaction: nominal

Return in 2020: 16

Score. ★★★★★

XRP is the biggest currency with a 10x potential in 2021.

XRP is the odd duckling in the cryptocurrency world: it is a centralized currency founded by Ripple Labs, mined, managed and operated by Ripple Labs (rather than the broader community). On the one hand, this gives the coin the benefits of a centralized payment processor such as Visa (NYSE:V). It has the ability to negotiate with large banks, execute transactions quickly, manage policies and much more.

  • Stellar (XLM)

To compete with XRP, Stellar offers low-cost cross-border trading.

Approximate market capitalisation: $1.1bn

Year founded: 2014

Cost per transaction: nominal

Return in 2020: 189

Score. ★★★★★

2021 looks set to be the year of Stellar: after falling behind Bitcoin in 2020, Stellar surprised analysts and investors with a 200% rise in the first week of January. Since then, it has continued to exceed expectations.

Much of that success can be attributed to the woes of XRP: like XRP, Stellar was designed to facilitate cross-border trading. As rival XRP’s regulatory problems intensified, Stellar moved quickly to fill the void. But some of this is down to luck: in January, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) allowed banks to start using an independent node verification network.  The Ukrainian government announced that it was partnering with Stellar Development to create a national digital currency.

These are the top cryptocurrencies for 2021, guaranteeing perfect investment conditions for Stellar.

  • Cardano (ADA)

Cardano is the largest third-generation cryptocurrency and is full of upside potential in 2021.

Approximate market cap: $2.7 billion

Year founded: 2017

Cost per transaction: 7 cents

Return in 2020: 441

Score. ★★★★★

Running on the Cardano network, ADA is one of the most technologically interesting cryptocurrencies to date. Its proof-of-stake system means that it can operate more efficiently than a typical proof-of-work system. It also uses smart contracts, which means that it can track transactions like Bitcoin and process payments like Ethereum. In short, it is a third-generation coin, an improvement on the traditional coin.

  • Dogcoin (DOGE)

An internet meme turned cryptocurrency, Dogecoin is giving the world a way to make money.

Approximate market cap: $7 billion

Year founded: 2013

Cost per transaction: 3 cents

Return in 2020: 118

Score. ★★★★★

In 2013, Billy Markus, a software engineer at IBM (NYSE:IBM), founded Dogecoin as a meme joke. And like many memes, Dogecoin had its 15 minutes of fame; in 2017, Doge briefly rose 85,000% as the internet found new fun, but has since lost 98% of its value.

Four-star coin

Polka Dot (DOT).

Along with Cardano/ADA, Polkadot is another promising third-generation cryptocurrency to think about.

Approximate market cap: $2.7 billion

Year founded: 2017

Cost per transaction: nominal

2020 return: 205

Score. ★★★★

In December, Binance announced a $10 million fund to support the project of Polkadot, a new cryptocurrency. the price of DOT has risen 41% in a week. And there’s potential for further gains.

Founded by Gavin Wood, the chief technology officer of the Ethereum project, the protocol is an improved version of the old blockchain. Technically, the main difference is that Polkadot uses a para-chain (a method of operating multiple blockchains in parallel). This solves a major problem for Bitcoin, which has a single, growing blockchain that all miners (and transactors) must store. The developers have also added scalability, smart contracts and security.

  • Neo (NEO)

Dubbed “China’s Ethereum”, NEO is set to shine if the Chinese Communist Party allows it.

Approximate market cap: $3 billion

Year founded: 2016

Cost per transaction: nominal

Return in 2020: 63

Score. ★★★★

Don’t be fooled by NEO’s sleeping 2020 returns; NEO (formerly known as Antshares) is one of China’s first and largest cryptocurrencies. The coin fell significantly in 2018 when the Chinese government cracked down on cryptocurrency exchanges. However, in 2021, the coin made an impressive comeback as Chinese regulators turned their ire on payment processor Ant Group.

As the Chinese Communist Party rethinks its stance on cryptocurrencies, NEO has a chance to shine again.

Celsius (CEL)

Lender Celsius is a cryptocurrency that has the potential to become a bank.

Approximate market cap: $1 billion

Year founded: 2018

Cost per transaction: nominal

Return in 2020: 3.717%)

Score. ★★★★

In 2018, Celsius Network raised $20 million in crowdfunding to build a cryptocurrency lending platform. Since then, the network has made $6.2 billion in loans and earned $11 million in interest income, making it more akin to a bank than a currency. And having registered as an exempt issuer with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Celsius has soared while other regulation-linked currencies like XRP have struggled. In fact, the 2020 yield was the highest of any currency.

However, CEL could still continue to rise. It is one of the largest pure-play P2P lenders in the crypto space and is the cryptocurrency to watch in 2021.

  • Nano (NANO)

Want to have your own personal blockchain? Nano gives each user their own ledger.

  • Zcash:

Zcash came out in the later part of 2016. The currency defines itself as: “if Bitcoin is like http for money, Zcash is https”.

Zcash promises to provide transparency, security, and privacy of transactions. The currency also offers the option of ‘shielded’ transaction so the users can transfer data in the form of encrypted code.

  • Dash:

Dash is originally a secretive version of Bitcoin. It is also known as ‘Darkcoin’ due to its secretive nature.

Dash is popular for offering an expanded anonymity that allows its users to make transactions impossible to trace.

The currency first appeared on the canvas of the digital market in the year 2014. Since then, it has experienced a large fan following over a very short span of time.

  • Ripple:

With a market capitalization of over $1bn, Ripple is the last name on our list. The currency was launched in 2012 and offers instant, secure, and low-cost payments.

The consensus ledger of Ripple doesn’t require mining, a feature which makes it different from Bitcoin and other mainstream crypto currencies.

The lack of mining reduces the computing power which ultimately minimizes the latency and makes transactions faster.
