Top Crypto Investments That Will Yield 1000% by 2025

What will cryptocurrency be in the future? What will your crypto investments worth in about 6 years from now? In no particular order we will discuss the features & future of some “currently” top cryptocurrencies. And in no particular order our first cryptocurrency will be:
 

ZCASH

 
Its genesis dates back to 2013. Zcash was formerly known as Zerocoin and was invented by a team of scientists; Matthew Green, Ian Miers, Christina Garman, Aviel D. Rubin
Zcash (ZEC) is another Crypto currency like bitcoin but with a few different features. Just like Bitcoin, it is based on a decentralised blockchain but allows for anonymity behind all transaction amounts and the parties involved. In Bitcoin if you know someone’s address you can follow their transactions and you can see all their addresses and their transaction amounts. Its quite clear how much money is moving around, with ZCash all the information is encrypted.
 
Yes! Zcash has caused a lot of controversy with its cryptocurrency distribution methods but this is because the organisation is not set up as an open source community but as a Company. This is the first major difference between ZEC and other cryptocurrencies such as the ethereum. Another very distinct difference is how they plan on rewarding  investors and workers in the Company. They plan on doing this by a tax on mining rewards called “Founders’ reward.”
 
Currently, the Zcash is at about $449 but experts believe that Zcash has the potential to fill the void left by the declining off-shore banking sector and to gather much more persons across different financial backgrounds into its fold and not only wealthy elites. Some perosns have even posited that the Zcash price would reach $6,289 at only one percent of the global off-shore wealth. That alone is an over 1000% increase from its current price level. Following this predictions, the Zcash could reach a peak of about $62,293 or more by 2025.
 

DASH

 
Rated as the 15th most valuable cryptocurrency, DASH brings alongside lots of promises; it is noteworthy to mention the fact that Dash is not subject to the pressure of mining cartels or feuding core developers and this goes to show that its appreciation could as a matter of fact, stabilize in a couple of years. We believe that DASH would receive more acceptance in the 2020 and upwards especially for peer-to-peer transactions such as money transfers. We also believe that if DASH’s superior blockchain makes it easier to carry out transactions, it could see its price going up to the $1,000 range. As we know, one of the most interesting feature of the DASH coin is its ability to transfer funds to prepaid debit cards with much more ease as compared to other cryptocurrencies. For 2025, if the DASH coin can continue to be an investment commodity and enjoy greater circulation and stability, we certainly will see the DASH coin reach a high of over $1,500. That would be over 1000% of its current price level.
 

ETHEREUM

 
Ethereum was invented by Vitalik Buterin and is known to run on smart contracts and accelerates hash time and consequently reduces processing time for transactions. The smart contracts enabling system of Ethereum has been widely accepted and adopted. It is now the second most valuable cryptocurrency and its popularity is expected to increase as it becomes adopted by more and more persons.
If we were to assume that both bitcoin and ethereum represent half the worth of the crypto market each having 25% (1,137,500,000,000), and then we divide this amount into 100,000,000 (the maximum amount of Ethereum to be in circulation) we will find the value of one Ethereum to be $11,375. However, on the long run like in 2025, most experts believe that the value of ethereum will be $30,000 seeing that ethereum is for a non-profit initiative; and that Ethereum is regulated by the forces of demand and supply and the demand for Ethereum is steadily increasing. So by 2025, citeris paribus ethereum will be 1000% more than its current value now.
So there you have it. That’s our list of top cryptos that will yield 1000% and more, though we know that other cryptocurrencies can yield good investments within the said period, but this post solely focuses on those crypto investments that would increase the yield by over 1000% more.

HOW IS BINANCE FAIRING TODAY?

While Binance is one of the newest cryptocurrency exchanges available in the crypto market, it has quickly attained a high level of trust from its users and the digital currency community as a whole. Although the exchange fails to provide users with enough information on how the funds are being secured, we like to believe that security is treated on a serious note. The two-factor authentication (2FA) is available and it is always a reaffirming sight. It is however known that the platform offers a multi-tier system architecture.

Setbacks

Some hackers tried to pull off an audacious move which was detected by the automated systems in place at the exchange. For months the hackers had been said to be accumulating people’s logins via a phishing website and secretly installing API access on the affected accounts. After which they struck, converting all the victims’ altcoins to BTC and purchasing Viacoin, pumping the coin to a huge price and then selling their own supply of Viacoin at the high point. After which they withdraw the BTC to their own wallets. Luckily no one lost funds as the hack was detected on time and the only people to lose out were the hackers, whose funds would be donated to charity.
 
This hack was made possible by people entering their site logins and 2FA details into fake websites. Please, do well to always make sure you are on the correct Binance url before logging in. I recommend you bookmark the site and only use that to access it. Never click links from emails, Twitter, Telegram etc. As always, take safety precautions such as using a unique password for signing up, switch on 2-factor authentication and try not to hold a large balance on the exchange itself for too long – remember to withdraw your currencies to your own private wallet.
 

Aftermath

Nonetheless, this event has done a lot to instill confidence around Binance, not only did their automated processes detect the attempted hack before anyone lost any funds, they have since offered a $250,000 bounty to anyone who can help catch the hackers. Throughout this event, Binance acted exemplary and has been praised for their swift action in resolving this.
 
Binance is a popular cryptocurrency exchange which was started in China but moved their headquarters to the Island of Malta in the EU. Binance is popular for its crypto to crypto exchange services. While the company is still fairly new on the market it has managed to gain a lot of popularity thanks to its impressive number of Initial Coin Offering listings, professional attitude and also due to its low trading fees.
 
Recently, Binance began plans to launch their own Decentralized Exchange (DEX):The BNB digital asset is now an ERC-20 token, which will migrate as the native token of that network and be used for paying the trading fees on the new exchange
More to that is the fact that BINANCE is partnering with Neufund to build the world’s first Decentralized Stock Exchange. Alongside the Malta Stock Exchange, they are aiming to create a regulated and decentralized, global stock exchange for listing and trading tokenized securities alongside crypto-assets.
 
On the 16th of January 2019, Binance announced the launch of a new Fiat to Crypto exchange named Binance Jersey. The trading platform is live and active and allows you to trade in fiat currencies such as euros and pound sterling, with Europe being their target market.
Currently, it is one of the fastest exchanges available in the market (1.4 million orders per second). Additionally, the exchange works on all forms of devices, including web, Android, WeChat, and HTML5. Even Non-English speakers will be happy to know that Binance offers multiple-language support in Chinese, English, Korean and Japanese.
 
Based on everything that has been outlined so far, Binance is undoubtedly the leading Cryptocurrency Exchange and offers great fees and awesome digital currency support. Not only do they have one of the largest selections of coins to buy, but they are also the largest exchange by reported volume. Binance reportedly has access to abundant resources and partners, chances are that Binance will continue to evolve and offer great digital currency exchange services to its clients. We are happy to recommend Binance and have added it to our list of the Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges.
Moreover, they are well regarded in the cryptocurrency community for professionalism and security. While hackers have tried on countless occasions to breach their systems, they have remained one step ahead.

These are websites that will enable you to buy, sell or exchange cryptocurrencies for other digital or fiat currency like the US dollars or Euro. There are two main types of cryptocurrency exchanges; fiat exchanges and cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency exchanges. The fiat exchange allows the direct transfer of fiat currencies in trading cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency on the other hand is a platform where cryptocurrencies are traded with each other. For this write up, we will be considering a cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency type of exchange; Poloniex.
What is Poloniex?

It shows that they are ready for business, so your first point of contact will be signing up. Depending on the country on which your internet proxy address is registered, the equivalent of some of the biggest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization will be in the local currency.
After you click on the ‘SIGN UP’ button, you will be directed to the ‘Register’ tab. The tab is made up of four different steps; Register, Activate, Profile, Identity and Complete. We will be taking these steps accordingly.

Step 2: Register

There you have to log in to Poloniex with your email and password. After logging in, security check will be carried out on your browser and generally, your computer system. The steps are as shown below;

 

Step 5 – Idenitiy Verification

The verification stage requires you filling in details like your phone number, street address, postal code among others. The most important however is the identity card. You can choose between international passport, driver license or any recognized ID card. Whichever you have, it must be an identity card with assigned number. Selecting a driver’s license makes things easy. All you have to do is use a phone with a good camera to snap the front and back view of the license and upload them on the ‘Front’ and ‘Back’ slot respectively. Verification process varies. Sometimes it takes few minutes and other times it takes days. Make sure you check the box on agreeing with the terms and conditions though – that is after you must have gone through them.

Prior to the final activation of your account, you can actually play around with some features of Poloniex, but you cannot trade. Remember that Poloniex exchange does not support fiat cryptocurrency purchases, you will have to buy cryptocurrencies on exchanges like Coinbase after which you will send it to Poloniex.

UPDATE ON BLOCKPORT

BLOCKPORT
With the emergence of cryptocurrencies as a global phenomenon over the past several years, with certain currencies like Bitcoin achieving phenomenal success, many people have become inquisitive around digital currencies. This follows with a dramatic rise of people who are interested in cryptocurrency trading, whether for the sake of active or passive income generation, or even just out of curiosity.

Blockport announced that the company is working with Bugcrowd to maintain and continuously improve the security of its platform.

Researchers can now submit vulnerabilities to Blockport which are then examined and validated by Bugcrowd and prioritized for Blockport to address in subsequent releases. Bugcrowd also provides remediation advice on submitted vulnerabilities which has further differentiated the company in the market. Coordinating disclosure efforts through a formalized channel minimizes the likelihood of missing important vulnerabilities, cyber attacks and public disclosure incidents.
“Our long term goal is to grow into the most user-friendly and widely-used decentralized exchange,” said Zowie Langdon, CTO, Blockport. “The security of our users’ funds is something we take very seriously. We see it as our primary duty to empower everyone in our community to assist in keeping Blockport and its users secure. Combining our private bug bounty with a vulnerability disclosure program helps us fulfill this duty with unsurpassed coverage.”
Blockport is a community-focused platform. The increased awareness that a vulnerability disclosure program provides Blockport helps improve security both for Blockport and the industry at large. The program provides security researchers within the community a channel of communication to become directly involved with Blockport’s security, while simultaneously rewarding them for their involvement.
“Blockport stands apart not only for its focus on user security, but also on the entire industry,” said Ashish Gupta, CEO, Bugcrowd. “Having run a private bug bounty program since the launch of its private beta, Blockport has demonstrated a real commitment to security, during a time in which we’ve seen an increasing number of cyber attacks. Awareness is paramount to overcoming these threats and Blockport is leading the way in building this awareness with their vulnerability disclosure program.
