Ethereum, NEO, EOS, Qtum, Tron and the Battle for Decentralized App Supremacy

In the friendly fight for crypto supremacy, decentralized applications are a crown jewel.

DApps are essentially software platforms that don’t rely on a central authority to bring the user and the app together. One way to think about them is to picture an alternative to apps on Google Play and the App Store, which rely on third parties and centralized databases to function. In the crypto version, the apps utilize data that is decentralized by design.

In the world of crypto, DApps are often built on top of networks like Ethereum, and can take the form of a simple game like CryptoKitties, or a fully-fledged blockchain platform like Augur.

Top 10 “Winners” and “Losers” in April!

April was an interesting month in the cryptoverse: prices have picked up pace from their bear run of the first quarter of this year, Tax Day in the US had crypto as an additional stress factor, and Malta established itself as the crypto country of Europe. Let’s take a look at how coins fared during this bull run.

TOP 10 WINNERS

From a total of 50 biggest coins by market cap, the top ten winners are mostly from the lower part of the set. This may be attributed to the fact that they are less established than the upper half of the list, and so prone to more variation in price. Still, those HODLing these coins will love seeing them at the top of our list.

TOP 10 LOSERS

With how often we speak about the merits of April’s bull run, the data listed below may not come as a shock to our readers: only one coin has a net decrease in value, and that is Tether (USDT), sitting at exactly USD 1 at the time of writing – which is exactly where it wanted to be, as their endgame is becoming the crypto replacement for the US dollar. The others are not losers in the traditional sense – they simply increased the least.
In the light of mostly positive changes for the crypto space, a bullish, optimistic summer may not be too much to hope for.

Crypto Coins: Top 5 Losers!

While some cryptocurrencies were soaring in 2018, many others have not had the same story to tell.

Bitcoin Diamond (BCD)
Bitcoin Diamond was forked off from Bitcoin blockchain on 24th November 2017. The Bitcoin Diamond sets to solve problems such as lack of privacy, slow transaction confirmations, and a high threshold for new members. The pseudonym names of the Bitcoin Diamond are Team Evey and Team 007. BCD was selling for as high as USD 109, but the story seems to have changed in 2018, as the price has plummeted to USD 2.56 and its fall is mainly due to Bitcoin’s dip.

Bitcoin Gold (BGD)
Bitcoin Gold is a digital currency and a hard fork of Bitcoin. The hard fork occurred on October 24th, 2017. Bitcoin Gold once traded at USD 500 but as at 2018, it is well in the red at USD 52.14. Bitcoin Gold was created to “return to the decentralized nature” of the BTC, and give ordinary users an opportunity to mine the new digital currency.

Qtum (QTUM)
The cryptocurrency, Qtum, is a hybrid of Ethereum and Bitcoin. While Ethereum is primarily a smart contract platform, Bitcoin was designed to be a value transfer tool, and Qtum is a bridge between these two. Qtum was launched in March 2017, with a crowdfunding campaign that lasted 30 days. It sold over USD 10 million worth of its token in the first 90 minutes, raising a total value of USD 15.7 million and stopped the campaign after five days.

Ripple (XRP)
Released in 2012, Ripple is a technology that acts as a cryptocurrency and digital payment network for financial transactions. The digital currency, XRP, acts as a bridge to other currencies, as it does not discriminate between one crypto and another. This makes it easy for any currency to be exchanged for one another. In 2017, Ripple was one of the best performing digital assets, but they are not having it easy in 2018, as the price has nosedived, despite the hype in 2017 and the announcements of new partnerships and projects.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Bitcoin Cash developers aims to “increase confidence in cryptocurrency”, as Bitcoin was criticized for slow transaction times, high mining fees and high energy consumption, factors that BCH’s supporters feel it combats. The fork from Bitcoin occurred on August 1, 2017.
