The Top 5 Currencies for 2021

The Top 5 Currencies for 2021

Ethereum (ETH)

This blockchain is relatively new. It has the ability to create "smart contracts." The cryptocurrency from this blockchain is called Ether and is considered an advanced version of Bitcoin. Currently, it’s growing faster than Bitcoin.

Ethereum is not considered a "digital gold" as it runs on a series of contracts. Because of that, it can be compared to Google Wallet or Apple Pay. The whole deal depends on real-world events. Buyers and sellers set up particular situations when the trade takes place. 

In comparison to Bitcoin, these blockchains are much faster. Instead of 15 minutes, transactions take 15 seconds. This makes it a good choice for real-time users. Yet, it is still pretty expensive in costs. It also has widespread usage and is relatively safe in comparison to other new cryptos. 

This crypto can be considered number one when it comes to risk-to-reward potential. 

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is one of the most known cryptocurrencies. Even though it is not so technologically advanced, it is a still great investment choice for 2021. 

Because of its popularity, this crypto is considered a good choice for mainstream investors. Even if you don't know much about crypto trading, you can use Square or Paypal to buy bitcoin for $1. It doesn't mean bitcoin is just for small investors. A big investment can proceed with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). 

The liquidity of this crypto is sure, as it holds around two-thirds of the entire cryptocurrency market. It is also resistant to various attacks by people who want to manipulate the blockchain. 

Even though it’s so popular, Bitcoin has its downsides. First of all, the transaction is pretty slow and can take up to 15 minutes. Additionally, it can cost $12. That's all right if you consider this crypto "digital gold," but is not going to work well if you want to use Bitcoin as a day-to-day currency. 

This crypto is also exposed to macroeconomic movements. It can lose a lot of value with just a stock market downturn. As the economy in 2021 is not stable, Bitcoin can lose even 50-80% of its value. 


This cryptocurrency is centralized, and because of that, it can limit the high costs of transfers between banks. 

XRP is the currency that is predicted to have the highest potential in 2021. This crypto is managed by Ripple Labs instead of the crypto community. Thanks to centralization, you can use Visa and other centralized payment methods. You can also negotiate with banks, receive more security thanks to control policies, etc. 

However, if you reach for the centralized institution, why would you use a cryptocurrency at all? Ripple controls more than half of the XRP supply, and it's registered to have some accounting issue. 

However, XRP can have great potential and bring a change into the cryptocurrency scene in 2021. Some financial institutions use it as an alternative to the SWIFT network. Thanks to this, it has a real-world application. 

It also has a low price-per-coin which makes it easier to see a higher percentage grow. 

Stellar (XLM)

This crypto grew 200% in the first week of this year. Because of that, it is a very promising choice for 2021. 

XLM was created to facilitate cross-border transactions. When the XRP started to have issues with this, Stellar filled the void. Thanks to that, it became more popular. 


The Cardano network created ADA. So far, it's one of the most technologically advanced cryptos. It can handle payments like Ethereum but keep track of transactions just like bitcoin. That means this new crypto is one of the best choices that might overcome its predecessors. 

However, if people are not going to adopt ADA, even the newest technologies are not going to help it survive. 


The cryptocurrency market is speeding up. While throughout the world the idea of crises hovers, people are turning even more towards cryptocurrencies. While Bitcoin is still in the game, there are new players, such as ADA or Stellar. Are they going to turn the whole market upside down? We are going to see soon.
