Top five Crypto Currencies To Invest in 2017

The world of crypto currency is moving truly swift. Over the past five years Bitcoin outperform any other investment like gold, stock market or real estate.

Over the past years hundreds of fresh crypto currencies came on the market. Most of them are just copy cat or only have a few features that make them different.

Only a handful of those crypto currencies are real outliers. Those unique ones disrupt their industry just like bitcoin did with the financial sector.

The following top five crypto currencies are outliers and are the one I am sure will go up in value by 10x-100x over the next two years. (Roger ver, here is my prediction) ��

1. Ethereum

Ethereum is a true outlier. It’s a platform that permits to create wise contract that runs on a decentralize network. The team behind Ethereum is very clever. I always look up the people that are behind a project before investing and Ethereum has 100% of my confidence. Those guys rock.

Other then the team, the degree of adoption that Ethereum gets at the moment is phenomenal. Because ethereum is a platform where developer can deploy Dapps, a lot of inovation is being made at the moment and each one of those innovation boost the adoption rate of Ethereum and create a network effect.

If one currency can make it big, it is Ethereum. It already grew 1000% over the past few months and I can see the currency go another 1000% lightly if not more over the next few months and years.

Ethereum is the only crypto-currency that I believe has the capacity to overtake Bitcoin Market cap in the near future.

Current Market Cap: $816,840,813

Prediction: Ethereum is the crypto currency that has the most potential. I think it could be possible to see it overtake Bitcoin in Market Cap. 500$/ether is something plausible in the near future.


Factom is another fantastic cryptocurrency that used to be called “Notary Chain” that should grow by a lot this year.

Factom permits companies to create immutable database.

Factom store information in their own blockchain and then create a hash of that data and stores it into the Bitcoin blockchain. They are also working on adding that hash into ethereum and other big blockchain to add protection.

Factom just got a massive contract with twenty brainy cities in China and are working with other countries to create immutable data base. This will permit those government to stream line and secure their data.

The market for Factom is large and they definitly are outliers. The people behind Factom are also very wise. I am looking forward the growth of this company.

Prediction: Factom is getting mass adoption very quickly, I can see it growing to $30 before the summer.


Maidsafe has been around for fairly a while now. Ten years exactly and they eventually launch their Alpha MVP this week. Maidsafe is a decentralize database.

Instead of storing data on your computer, with maidsafe you can encrypt and upload it on the decentralise server. That way no one person can access your data without your permission. It is 100% secure and it doesnt use any space.

This decentralise database will make it possibe for whistle blower to share information without having the fear of watching the governement or other group censor them. It is the internet uncensored.

Again, the people behind maidsafe are real geniuses. When you listen to them, you know that their vision is the future. I am so excited to have the safenet working. Once the safenet goes live the crypto-currency behind their project should skyrocket to the moon. It already went 10x over the past few months but thats nothing compare to what is coming.

Maidsafe has the capacity to revoluionize the internet as we know it. They are truly amazing. Only people in the crypto-world know them because they are in Alpha, but as soon as they are live ( a few months) You will see them on every newspaper.

Right now you can only purchase their improvised coins called MaidSafeCoin. Im not sure how the exchange process will work so that is the only thing stopping me from investing strongly in this one.

Prediction: once they go live, their price will sky rocket to a few dollars for sure. I truly think they can revolutionize the internet so their price should reflect that in the long term. 600$ in a few years.

Four. Bitcoin

Bitcoin has proven a store of value over the past few years and it is presently trading at 410$ today. The price vary a lot but it outperformed all the other investment vehicle by a lot.

Bitcoin has the network effect and most people have heard of Bitcoin. But this is not a panacea because Myspace had the network effect at some point and they lost their position over better platforms like Facebook.

Over the past few years, Bitcoin got a lot of venture capital money so we should see very interesting apps and project coming to the market in 2016. All those companies will drive broader public adoption which would drive the price up.

One problem with bitcoin is that it’s block size limit reached the maximum amount of transaction it can process. It will need to overcome this before the price can begin climbing again.

Current Market Cap: $6,275,855,363

Prediction: With the stock market going down, people will be looking for a safe heaven. I think it can reach 1200$ before the end of the year if they don’t get overtaken by Ethereum. If they get overtaken, we might see the price drop instead as people transfer to this better option.


Ripple is my last choice. The Banking system is attempting to catch up on what Bitcoin did to them. The only thing stoping bitcoin right now is slow rate of adoption. Ripple pivoted into the banking market and recently closed a deal with SBI Bank, one of the main financial institution in Asia.

I heard that Ripple was attempting to do something with the w3c consortium and I heard of Ripple attempting to close a deal with RBC bank. So there is no big tornado yet but it seems like they are working hard behind the scene and something big might come out in the near future.

One thing I know is that the banking system would rather deal with a stable crypto-currency rather than one that fluctuate a lot, so Im not sure how that will play out with Ripple.

I wouldn’t hold my breath and I’m not too interested to see the banking system win, all I want is to see bitcoin succeed. But I keep Ripple in the top five because I can see them being disruptive to the banking industry in the future.

Current Market Cap: $276,170,587

Prediction: If Ripple can prove that they are the solution for the banking industry, their valuation could skyrocket. Until then, let’s observe on the side line.

I think that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Factom and Maidsafe all do something very different and they finish each other. No one could do what the other one can do. They are all necessary in their adoption rate is very prompt. This is why those are my main bet for the five best crypto currencies of 2016. Ripple is a long shot but is worth following.

Crypto currency are one of the largest opportunies for investor out there. Leave behind about gold or the stock market. Crypto are the revolution and if you don’t want to be left behind, you better get embarked.

If you want to buy Bitcoin, Coinbase is the exchange I personally use. You can buy Bitcoin and Ethereum and receive Bitcoin payment directly into your bank account.

I totally agree with you about Ethereum and Bitcoin predictions. I actually tend to believe that Bitcoin will give up its position to Ether eventually. It has become too slow, and there is a stagnation period in the development area, so yes, Btc=MySpace, which is nice but… Ether=Facebook, which is simply better in all aspects.

It’s interesting to see how it will evolve. There is a lot of interesting project coming on Ethereum soon that could make Ethereum adoption go even higher. Arcade city, digix, Augur, etc..

Good morning Alex Tormentor,

I am Rajesh from India, I am 100% fresh,In india selected5 to six exchange of bitcoin & one exchange of ethereum. I open mt A/c in So Tormentor how can u train me & how can I buy Coin at flawless price? HOW CAN I BUY OTHER COIN WHICH U SUGGEST?

RBI in india permits you to invest/transfer UD $ 250,000/ annum from your bank account to anywhere in the world, for investments, without obtaining any formal permissions. So in my opinion, you can transfer to one of the reliable exchange like GDAX (Coinbase) / Poloniex, (if you want to invest in numerous crypto currencies). What I understand from media reports that it will be a disturbance of FEMA, most likely if you attempting to invest un-accounted money. Still check with some guys who have good understanding of FEMA and latest amendments, if any.

Absolutely no !! USD $ 250,000 outward remittance is permitted only for for valid reasons like education, tourism, support to family members etc. Shares and crypto investment are not permitted. stick to indian trading platform to avoid messing up with FEMA. They are going fairly stringent day by day.

you can buy bitcoin and exchange into another crypto whatever u want you can lightly buy bitcoin to known money exchanger

I am a Nigerian, please how can i buy Ethereum in Nigeria? Secondly is Ethereun accepted worldwide? Hope to hear from you soon.

For your MAID prediction. Did you mean $6.00. Or truly $600?

Is ripple coin safe to invest

Well it evolved pretty well!

Hey I know you might get a lot of questions in regards to crypto currency, but what can you advise about aeternity?

Hello, I’m fresh in the cryptoworld but after reading this article and your comment I just was wondering what are your thoughts now with btc rising to over 4K? What do you think we can expect from btc and etherium from here?

We are pretty much the same in our top picks – however I’m providing more attention to Bitshares, Monero and Dash. Good read!

Thanks glad you love!

Monero is good, Zcash coming out soon. Lots of interesting thing happening

how do you buy others besides bitcoin and ethereum like monero and litecoin and ripple etc if not from coinbase?

I personally use along with Coinbase. Kraken has eleven crypto currencies.

Hi Alex, what are your thoughts on Litecoin, and by extension the Litecoin network?

Same picks as well, tho’ I’ve thrown in some smaller-caps: xcp, rdd, rbr, and sec.

Nice list… my private favourites are Ripple , etherum and Bitcoin…There are other good ones but those three i predict will do very well in the future

Hi iam alok from india please tell me which currency i can invest for long term for good comebacks.

Where can I purchase Ripple and Factom?

You can purchase them on exchanges like bittrex or poloniex

what is your prediction for ripple in ’17? i have heard conflicting reports from many. just nosey what you think it will hit this year. in USD.

where can I buy top ten crypto currencies

TXCoin will soon go on the market to be sold. I hear it is backed with gold and other. I will soon open up in the market. I paid five RMB for each coin. My coin already enhanced in value by 1.Sixty-nine RMB It’s selling for 6.Sixty-nine RMB as of now. It is preparing to go global any day. Have any of you gotten any feed back about TXCoin yet? This is all fresh to me so if anyone has any advice I would appreciate the support.

Hey David, never heard of txcoin. can you link to their ANN thread?

I Invested in Stellar and Monero

Am in east Africa and i am interested to read and learn more about crypto currencies may you recommend the regit website that i can get clear understanding and also advice on the best crypto currencies to invest in…..there is been a lot of buzzy about one coin in our country…any views…….thanks

Onecoin is a scam. Do not get involve with this. Check out if you want to learn more about bitcoin. You can read satoshi Nakamoto White paper. Check out also my youtube channel for in-depth movie about cryptocurrency.

Can you please let meknow how ONECOIN is a Scam.

Because it is not a cryptocurrency. The coin is not running on a blockchain, it is simply an excel sheet on their computer. When you buy the onecoin scam, you get your name on an excel sheet. Me and everybody in the Bitcoin industry advise against this scam, don’t get caught.

can u please name crytocurrency for long term investment. I am reading lots of forum and want to do long term safe investment. I had collected few name which I very likely will go to buy. they are as follows-

strat, sys coin, antshare, grid, pot, burst, xem, maid, nxt, nav, stellar and sia.

what u say about all this. pls reply

Hi Alex, can u please tell me is leocoin has future, can people trust on it?

Onecoin is a giant scam. Google ‘onecoin scam’ to read both sides of the story (it sounds like you’ve already heard the pump, now read the dump). STAY CLEAR OF ONECOIN. Invest your money in a few of the top ten digital currencies and you’ll be all good a decade from now!

Clubcoin also.. Find this in bittrex and on the rise track.. Why? #coinpay platform (hundred merchent will permit this) launching soon.. Also the massive network over the world.. Three years from now will be usd5-10.. prize by stake.. Probe your self ��

thanks a lot Alex, i am from west Africa how can i buy ” ripple” please direct me.?

Alex, can you please throw some light on YOCOIN

Truly good suggestions, I would have included XMR in there just because of the hype Zcash was going to generate about privacy.

Overall, against USD at least ETH in the last six Months the price has moved by $ Two.39 (22.85%) with a total volume of over Ξ 36.87 M / $ 463.75 M

Factom in the last six Months the price has moved by Ƀ 0.001276 (31.90%) with a total volume of over FCT 59.28 M / Ƀ 197.01 K and on top of this BTC has moved up as well so it’s closer to 70% up since your prediction

Maidsafe in the last six Months the price has moved by Ƀ -0.00006000 (-29.41%) with a total volume of over MAID 1,080.70 M / Ƀ 148.62 K but BTC has gone up against USD so you’d still be up against USD

Bitcoin in the last six Months the price has moved by $ 177.36 (41.71%) with a total volume of over Ƀ 11.84 M / $ 6,767.52 M

Ripple in the last six Months the price has moved by Ƀ -0.000006000 (-32.61%) with a total volume of over XRP 7,481.97 M / Ƀ 86.67 K but you’d still be up against USD

So out of all your predictions, it seems that FCT did the best followed by BTC.

Hi Vlad, thanks for this summup

Where would you invest now, knowing all this, in two thousand seventeen for the near future ?

I thing to maximize the chances, there should be at least five or six different coins to invest in, one of them will in a decade max be around one thousand usd very likely (excluding ETH and BTC)..

Good morning pls i want to invest on any cryptocurrency that have a very good future,pls I need your advice and guidelines on how to invest the morning through the right channel.

I need guidelines on how to invest the money.

I’m closely watching Ripple and maidsafe and nem

Ripple will explode when we all least expect it, you witness! It has so much potential but so far, has been widely overlooked for one ordinary reason (because Ripple is working WITH the banks instead of AGAINST the banks).

Amazing! hope you became rich from ripple just now – you deserve it.

Kudos to all ur efforts to sustain the world of crptocurrency, I am indeed motivated with your goodness, keep it up with ur good work. My name is fetuga, I am so much interested in investing in cryptocurrency particularly ripple and so called fathom but I dont know how to go about it.

Pls I will be so glad, if you can guide me through all the processes involve

Factom / FCT is the best cryptocurrency out there at the moment. Massively undervalued and the Factom team is awesome. Tim Draper’s team invested Four.Five million dollars recently also, and if it’s good enough for Tim, it’s good enough for me.

The fact that Tim invests is not good enough. His stiff DJV was a lead investor in Theranos, and that has proven to be a scam, no one in the scientific community was providing a dime for them, yet I heard him speak in person praising the CEO, and see where it all is now

Recall, VCs operate on a scheme where they only expect about 10% of their investments to succeed ��

Hi Alex, can I buy MaidSafe coins directly with USD without buying Btc? If yes how?

You need to buy BTC very first, then you can transfer to poloniex or shapeshift and purchase it.

Appreciate if you could advice some input for ETH Classic

Please which cryptocurrency should I invest in among these three

onecoin, Edinarcoin or Thebillioncoin…please I need guideline, thanks.

If the coin you want to invest in don’t have a repository where you or someone you trust can actually look at the code behind the coin, it means it is a scam.

All cryptocurrency have a github repository where other developer can look at the code. No code = fake coin

The three coins you mention here are well known scams. There is no blockchain technology behind those coins. It’s only a excel spread sheet and they add your name with how much money they stole from you. Do not get con into those scams.

You are very wise in your comments. good. I liked you too much

alex what do to think about zcash as an alternative to monero ? Also lovely coin which seems to have fine application for good -will it also be profitable ? Lastly what is your opinion of whether it is worth taking out genrsis mining contracts ?

ps meant cure not nice coin

I think that cloud mining contract is not a valuable thing to do. I would undoubtedly advise against it. You are better off buying your own equipments or just buy the coin itself.

Zcash has better privacy feature then Monero. Privacy is a enormous reason why Bitcoin got so popular. So yes, the future is looking bright for Zcash and Monero because of their superior privacy feature.

Hi Alex what about Coin Space. Due to launch in September 2017. My very first introduction to crypto currency. Thanks

Why the Zcash isn’t listed on the ? The coin no longer exist or what?

I have about $500 usd to invest but l don’t know how to go about it. Can you please tell me the digital currency to invest in.

Alex which of the currency is best investing in right now and how will I go about it, need ur guide thanks

“The Ethereum Platform rests on open-source software, and there is a risk that the Ethereum Stiftung or the Ethereum Team, or other third parties not directly affiliated with the Stiftung Ethereum, may introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructural elements of the Ethereum Platform causing the system to lose ETH stored in one or more User accounts or other accounts or lose sums of other valued tokens issued on the Ethereum Platform.”

That makes me rethink any strategy as the entire point to crypto currencies is security and anonymity.

There is a lot of hum around coinspace in U.K. And also Giracoin in Switzerland. What do you think of these two crypto currency.

Did you get a reply about coinspace , interested to see what he had to say

Hi, I truly appreciate your support, and I still want to know if virtacoin as a good future also.

Hello Alex. Do you know about Airbit Club? Do you recommend it? Thank you

One coin i see to make it big is Gulden (NLG) already has online merchents, offline merchents. And with their app you can pay to any gulden bitcoin and iban/sepa adress (no exchange). Its fairly unknown still. But the devs are amazing.

where do i buy bitcoin and make payment with either mastercard or paypal.

Coinbase, but it will be limited amount per week.

Jawacoin is good

Have you ever heard of Wow Coins? Need to know about its authenticity.

Fine work Alex !. Any one have an idea about “das coin” which will be out in next year and according to the coinleaders. com which has a combined features of bit coin and factum. Is it a scam ?

Good-day alex,pls I invested with LEO how reliable it is, tnx.

from where and how to buy crypto currencies only having blockchain technology and effortless to buy and sell ( encashment),

I know about bitcoin and there is bitcoin exchange in India

Please suggest me which cryptocurrencies is good for buy

Hello Alex. I agree with your predictions. I knew its a foolish question but you gave your price expectation for all of them a part of ripple ;). Can u predict a certain figure? Thanks

Hi Alex, its good to see that you guide people the right way. Please share your thoughts and suggestions about Leocoin ?

Appreciate if you could gladly guide whether to invest in Ether or Bitcoin ?

Can you give me about virtacoin. Are this cryptocoin is good

We all are on right track. Just avoid scammers. My top five is Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monroe, litecoin and Ripple.

Fine article. But what are your concerns regarding the maidsafecoin exchange process?

How can someone invest into these coins, bitcoin, ethereum, factom and ripple?

$600 for Maidsafe in a few years? That would give the company a market cap of $271,531,447,200. That’s a fatter market cap than General Electrical, AT&T, Alibaba, Procter and Gamble, Visa, and Wal-mart. Do you think you’re being a little ambitious?

Firstly don’t leave behind the S-curve in supply (it’s not likely to get much over Three.5bn coins) and the fact that safecoins are burned/ruined when used, then farmed anew with a higher velocity of money and utility than anything we’re used to in crypto – you HAVE to burn safecoins to store or serve data on the network, only surfing is free.

Secondly, even at your estimate that’s under 1/Three of a trillion. If SAFE Network is truly successful it could do a hell of a lot more than that given the number of areas it excels in – black market ($Ten trillion), internet ($15+ trillion), IoT (predicted over $7 trillion by two thousand twenty and $20 trillion by 2027, gold and silver ($8 trillion), serving the unbanked, remittances etc ad nauseum.

Truly, there is no limit to the potential for a secure, private, censorship resistant network (real digital freedom) that monetises spare resources, scales positively, and provides free infrastructure for developers, along with a coin that has intrinsic value to store and serve data securely, can be sent instantly with zero fees, no PoW, private by default, capped supply, big utility request blah blah blah..

Indeed, if it became very popular and worked exactly as described with no compromises made to the functionality it promises, then I think in the long term MAID/SAFEcoin could even dwarf that prediction – crazy as that may sound to the uninitiated. It can also do the brainy contracts of Eth, but it scales, so if you like Eth potential and you like upside and the chance to make crazy comes back then you should like MAID. It is by far and away my favourite pick and thickest hold in crypto, I have sold almost all my Eth in this latest bump ;). Sell optimism, buy fear and uncertainty.

My big pics for ROI in 2017/2018 are MAIDSAFE and PDC/Decorum.

I’ll be returning to quote myself here at some point with some numbers to display how right I was ;-p

well I just heard about crypo currency and doing some research. Looks like you blew it big time selling Eth in March. Early days I know but just telling.

Charles – what are your thoughts on Litecoin?
