The value of cryptocurrencies has been a hot topic for some time now. The biggest question is how to get the most from them in order to maximize your investment. In this blog, I will be talking about the top 10 biggest cryptocurrencies of 2018.
Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, with an estimated market cap of $150 billion and a circulating supply of 16 million coins. This makes it the highest-valued digital currency in existence today. The second biggest cryptocurrency is Ethereum, which has a market cap of roughly $66 billion and a circulating supply of 97 million coins. The third largest cryptocurrency by market cap is Ripple, which has a market cap of approximately $36 billion and a circulating supply of 99 million coins.

The cryptocurrency market is booming, and if you’re reading this, you’re probably interested in dipping your toes into the crypto waters. However, before you do so, you should know exactly what you are getting yourself into.
There are tons of opportunities with crypto currencies and blockchain technology, but also a lot of risks. If you want to make good business decisions, then it’s essential for you to understand the market as much as possible.
To help you out with that, here are the top 10 biggest cryptocurrencies of 2018:
You would have to be living under a rock to not hear about the cryptocurrency mania. The most popular coin, Bitcoin, has been making news almost every day. It’s value is up over $1000 in the last month and currently trades at over $10,000 a coin. While Bitcoin is the star of the show right now, there are many other coins that are up huge as well. Here’s a list of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap in January 2018:
1. Bitcoin (BTC) $255B
2. Ethereum (ETH) $98B
3. Ripple (XRP) $45B
4. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) $23B
5. Cardano (ADA) $16B
6. NEM (XEM) $11B
7. Litecoin (LTC) $9B
8 Stellar Lumens (XLM) $7B
9. IOTA (MIOTA) $6B
10 Tether (USDT) $6B
10. Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Bitcoin Cash is the result of a hard fork in August 2017 from Bitcoin. The split was the result of the long-standing dispute in the community about the scalability of Bitcoin, which was addressed by increasing the block size to 8MB. The split resulted in a new cryptocurrency that has taken over the 10th largest cryptocurrency spot by market cap.
9. TRON (TRX)
TRON is a blockchain-based decentralized protocol that aims to construct a worldwide free content entertainment system with the blockchain and distributed storage technology. The protocol allows each user to freely publish, store and own data, and in the decentralized autonomous form, decides the distribution, subscription and push of contents and enables content creators by releasing, circulating and dealing with digital assets, thus forming a decentralized content entertainment ecosystem.
8. Cardano (ADA)
Cardano is a technology platform that runs smart contracts: applications designed for cryptographic protection which cannot be modified or censored. It is similar to Ethereum but aims at solving issues of interoperability and scalability that are currently holding back blockchain technology from mainstream adoption. It’s also superior to Ethereum because it uses multiple layers for different functions – one for payments, one for computations and one for governance – rather than
Bitcoin had a stellar 2017. It started the year at less than $1,000, and reached nearly $20,000 before the end of December.
Last year saw the emergence of a cottage industry of predictors, prognosticators, and forecasters who spent much of the year attempting to guess where Bitcoin would go next. (For a few of my own predictions for 2018, see: “Bitcoin at $50,000 Is Within Reach.”)
With all the talk about the Segwit2x fork (that has now been postponed), I decided to get out my crystal ball and try to peer into the future once more. Here are my predictions for 2018.
1. Ripple ($XRP) will be the top performing cryptocurrency in 2018
2. Ripple ($XRP) could replace SWIFT and Western Union
3. Bitcoin will not reach $50,000 in 2018
4. Litecoin will outperform Bitcoin as transaction fees rise
5. Bitcoin’s market cap will surpass that of Facebook by 2020
