10 Cryptocurrencies Reddit is Buying for the Next Bull Run

The past year was in many ways a defining one for the crypto industry. Bitcoin, the most popular coin, reached an all-time high of around $65,000 in mid-April before witnessing a spectacular fall in the summer that saw the price shrink by almost half to around $30,000. The coin had begun the year trading at near $29,000. Other coins like Ethereum underwent a similar high and low, highlighting the risks associated with investing in crypto but also underlining the resilience of the blockchain technology in the face of regulatory and trust hurdles. Institutional and celebrity endorsements of crypto reached a record high in 2021 as well.

Investors who want to take advantage of the explosive growth potential of the new technology should consider investing in crypto-focused companies. Some of the top crypto stocks to buy now include NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), Mastercard Incorporated (NYSE:MA), and Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG)

10. Loopring

Loopring is a cryptocurrency founded by Daniel Wang, a former software engineer at Google, which uses the Ethereum blockchain to trade coins. The main advantage that the coin offers over others that use the same network is the cost at which it makes trades. These costs are a fraction of what others like Uniswap offer for the same trades. Loopring aims to be the coin that will eventually lead the decentralized building of non-custodial, order book-based exchanges. It will leverage zero-knowledge proofs for this.

9. Fantom

Fantom has risen to prominence on Reddit as a cheaper alternative to Ethereum. The latter has become famous for the security and stability of the platform compared to peers like Bitcoin. Fantom, which uses the “aBFT Proof-of-Stake” consensus mechanism, is designed in a similar way, prioritizing security while aiming to maximize speeds of transactions. Fantom has quickly established itself among the 30 most popular coins in the world despite going live only in 2019. The coin has a supply of over 3 billion and more than 2.5 billion are already in circulation.

Polkadot offers a “distributed computing” of blockchain, a unique proposition in the fintech world where the new technology is still evolving.

7. Ripple

Redditors have been interested in finding high-quality investments in the cryptocurrency market given the volatility associated with the market in 2021. Ripple is often touted as one of the “safest” bets in the cryptoverse. This is because Ripple is the coin used on RippleNet, a cross-border money exchange platform designed by Ripple developers to act as an alternative to SWIFT payments.

In addition to building new networks, Polygon is also used to improve the transaction speeds and lower cost of transactions on the Ethereum network.

The Harmony network is powered by sharding, allowing the coin to market itself as a “secure and fast” blockchain solution. Harmony uses a Proof-of-Stake mechanism to validate transactions.

4. Solana

Solana is another potential Ethereum rival. The Solana blockchain is faster and cheaper than Ethereum. The Solana network uses a combination of Proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-History mechanism to achieve consensus, a method that the developers of the coin claim improves the overall “efficiency” of the network. The coin is often described by market experts as a “long-term rival” to Ethereum. Redditors have also been piling into the coin based on the capabilities it offers in the DeFi and NFT domains.

3. Stellar
