Often people ask me if it is a wise decision to invest in digital assets. While the risks that coming with investing in cryptocurrencies are always higher, but so are the profits. Significantly, everybody who is a little conversant with the crypto space has witnessed the revolution of an entirely new economy in less than a decade. Therefore, buying the virtual currencies could be the best decision in one’s life. However, the question to ask yourself is, which coins should you buy to hold. This article will dive into two altcoins with great potential in 2018. And as always, I will advise you to carry out more research before buying any of these coins.
This cryptocurrency project was designed to allow people to take advantage of the blockchain technology when making financial transactions. The official website details that the protocol enables “easy and simple identity management and verification services including secure voting, file signing, and proof-of-ownership.”
The platform is made up of the Radium SmartChain and the Radium Core. Users on the platform use the Radium SmartChain to tap into blockchain technology’s power of distributed irreversibility. It is designed with the newest software and protocols in the industry and with it users have access to advanced functions and features of the blockchain. It is also decentralized and works on the concepts of Proof-of-Existence and Proof-of-Ownership.
Radium Core, on the other hand, is the foundation of the Radium SmartChain. Radium Core allows users to seamlessly interact with data coming from the SmartChain using standard RPC connections. The radium wallet is also connected to the RPC.
The Radium Core team is delighted to announce a hard fork scheduled to take place on August 29, 2018. This event is in line with the rebranding process that has been happening since the beginning of the year. It is a big event for the project and is expected to escalate it into the spotlight. A new website has been launched already and the latest weekly update says that the development team is exploring mobile app integration and end-user experiences.
Radium is trading at $2.17 at the time of writing. It has a market cap of $7.6 million and is ranked at 499 on CoinMarketCap.
FoldingCoin, on the other hand, is a cryptocurrency token that “compensates participants (folders) for their Folding@home (FAH) computational power.” The platform allows users to not only earn FLDC tokens, but also other digital assets. The coins can be earned using the Folding Browser developed by the team at FoldingCoin and works properly with Windows devices.
The crypto project is inclined towards ensuring that the world has a better chance of fighting against cancer and Alzheimer’s. It reduces the work researchers have to put in when doing medical research by dividing it into sub-units run on users’ computers from anywhere in the world. In return for their computational power, the users are rewarded with FLDC tokens. The research is conducted by Stanford University.
FoldingCoin price is trading at $0.0053 according to CoinMarketCap. It has a market capitalization of $3.3 million while it is currently ranked 666 in the market. Its current trading volume is $522,222 in the last 24 hours. It has a circulating supply of $619,675,199 FLDC, similarly, the project has a total supply of 1 billion FLDC tokens.
