Most digital currency investors know that the cryptography market can be quite ruthless sometimes. Errors are hardly tolerated and never truly forgotten. Altcoins who make the wrong move are likely to lose much of their support, which usually only leads further down the road until they are completely forgotten, and they never see the light of day again.
However, this is not always the case, and there are still coins that have managed to make a comeback even after everyone thought they were gone forever. Today we will examine our first 3 choices for these coins and see how they are today.
1) Dogecoin (DOGE)
Dogecoin is an altcoin that does not need special presentations. If you follow the news from the cryptic world, it is likely that you have already heard of the coin "joke" several times. The doge became a meme, but managed to survive in some of the most difficult periods in the history of the crypt. As he did – nobody knows. However, it probably has something to do with one of the strongest and most supportive communities in cryptographic space.
Dogecoin has never had an extremely high value, and even during the 2017 price increase, it has always reached the value of $ 0.016 per coin. However, after the market crashed in January, DOGE fell to only a fraction of that value. The lowest year this year was $ 0.002311, and it was reported just before Dogecoin had surprised the entire crypto world by returning in mid-September. Since then, the currency has been relatively stable, with small drops in the last days. However, he still managed to come back from the edge, which is why he definitely belongs to this list.
EOS is a coin that barely has anyone in the gray area: most people love it or hate it, with nothing in between. For EOS, 2018 was a year full of events, during which this altcoin made a lot of progress. However, it was not a particularly happy year due to some mistakes made.
The biggest problem related to EOS this year occurred immediately after the launch of MainNet in June. The launch was not only delayed, but the network proved to be defective immediately after completion of the process. So much so, in fact, that he needed repairs within the first hours of his "life". Although at first glance it's nothing scary, it has affected the way many people think of EOS, and the trust in the project has been lost.
However, the project itself has enormous potential. It has an ecosystem similar to that of Ethereum, but it is simpler and easier to use. It is also a great place for developing dApp and creating smart contracts, which has made it popular among developers. Furthermore, EOS is fast, economical, scalable and stable. This is the reason why the project managed to stay alive even after it made mistakes and why it should explode during 2019.
3) Ripple / XRP
The XRP could be the project that suffered most in 2018, at least when it comes to moves against it. He certainly attracted much attention, and made numerous titles because of the controversies surrounding him.
Due to its nature, the fact that the company that created it owns most of its funds and numerous irregularities with bad explanations, XRP has been a primary target of accusations, lawsuits and negative press for a long time. Throughout the year, we continued to read the company sued, the currency is a scam, a potential centralization, the fact that it can not be extracted and much more.
All this helped to create a very negative image on XRP, and many people believed that the currency did not last long. However, XRP managed to launch some of its long-awaited products and it turned out that they worked without problems. As a result, XRP is increased by 20% double over a few months. On both occasions, he managed to briefly overtake Ethereum as the second largest coin by market capitalization. However, it was also reported in third place both times, after only a few hours.
Nonetheless, Ripple has many potentials, and the company behind it has struggled to show that money is truly decentralized after all. Furthermore, the situation regarding legal actions has been partially resolved and XRP has achieved a very successful return.
In the end, there is a lot more that the XRP must do to grow to its full potential. However, it certainly is not going anywhere, and will probably remain high among the altcoins for a long time.
