  1. I believe that the crypto-world is still in its early days and that it will need to undergo several structural changes before being self-sustainable. Of the 1500+ coins available in the market, the majority of them will disappear. It is important to understand that all these tokenized blockchain companies are still early-stage startups that still need to prove their true value. With this being said, I believe that there are numerous project which will be world-changing in the longer term. These projects are worth investing in, always keeping into account that they come with the same risks as an early-stage startup. I would invest an amount you are willing to loose in projects you truly believe in, rather than just for pure speculation purposes.

  2. Awesome stuff!
    Blockchain technology not only helps in the secure transaction, it will also help in many different fields of life i-e voting, Content Managment system and many more.
    Different countries are going to establish rules and regulation for cryptocurrencies.
    Earlier today I was reading an article, in which author has mentioned that Venezuela has launched its own cryptocurrencies and many other countries are going to launch state-sponsored currencies.
    Thus we can say the future of cryptocurrency is secure, all we need is to invest the right amount at a right time. Because investing in crypto is like playing a game, you need to understand the technology from different angles.
    Good luck on your journey of crypto!
