Is there peaple following just in pump or they all dump to after ? Cuz if we keep them we can proof that bitcoin is not the only one potential (in facts is the only one to have more than 5 possibilities to die... And make all crypto untreated) , and stop the big drop in altos.
At that time I was chasing gains in all those coins you mentioned and now I’m just all in on ICX. I don’t think it will reach $10 ever again. I just need it to reach $2 and I will be very happy. My $5k investment became six figures in 2021. Here’s to hoping for another prosperous run to at minimum $2!
The article states: _The following trading pairs were officially removed from the crypto exchange as of Jan. 6, 2023: - APE/GBP - BLZ/ETH - CAKE/GBP - ICX/ETH - SHIB/GBP - ZEN/BNB_ Never reading anything crypto related on Forbes again.
I can speak only about those that i closely follow for some time now. First one is ICX, the company behind them (Iconloop) is building an NFT blockchain, big Korean names from gaming industry are supporting them, and the goal is to make it fully interoperable. (name of the blockchain is Havah) Also, they are transforming ICX into interoperable solution (it takes them a lot of time to develop, more than 2 years of building, but goal is to make it most secure solution). I associate slow and steady approach with security and risk mitigation. ICON has already established working teams to connect ETH, Near, Moonbeam, Polkadot and others. Second one is COTI. COTI is similar to other blockchains but is different as they are using DAG technology. Other projects with DAG technology are IOTA, Nano, Hedera…) COTI is building stablecoin for Cardano, and recently they have gone through hard fork transfering their network from single coin to multi coin. Mostly building solutions for enterprises.
This is the truth. Past sub darlings from 2017-2018 like Nano, REQ, EOS, ICX, XRP all never got close to previous ath. There’s a good chance for BTC and ETH to see ath one day again and that’s enough for me, it still beats the hell out of many other opportunities
• When you start to see rate my portfolio threads, it’s time to sell to fiat/stablecoins. • DCA out may not let you time the top, but you lock in gains. Recognized gains >> paper gains not taken. • if you see a coin universally loved and shilled here, be very weary. There’s a good chance it’s a coordinated brigade or shill campaign. Even better is if you can’t read counter points or understand criticism of a shilled coin, then you have work to do. If you can’t refute these claims then it’s not just FUD, it’s genuine concern. • ETH killers come and go but none have actually taken it down yet. Be careful holding these throughout long bear markets. EOS, NEO, TRON, and ICX send their regards from 2018.
What do you guys think of enabling staking with Bitvavo? When I look at this text from Bitvavo, I have the impression that staking is not completely without risk: Staking By using the Off-Chain Staking Services, the Off-Chain Staking Digital Assets are no longer held and separated by the Foundation, but the Foundation assigns – with the consent of the User – its duties relevant for the Off-chain Staking Digital Assets to Bitvavo Custody and transfers the Off-chain Staking Digital Assets to Bitvavo Custody, who may transfer these Digital Assets to third parties to earn Rewards, while User remains the beneficial owner of the Off-chain Staked Digital Assets. Bitvavo Custody obtains a claim on these third parties, while those third parties may not be in a position to (fully) return the Off-chain Staking Digital Assets (in a timely fashion) to Bitvavo Custody. This could result in additional default and/or insolvency risks of Bitvavo Custody in which case Bitvavo Custody may not be in the position to redeliver the Off-chain Staking Digital Assets. This could result in a loss of Digital Assets belonging to a User. User is aware of these counterparty risks and should be wary of allowing third parties to hold and use their Digital Assets for any reason. It is a pity when disabling Staking means we no longer get rewards on ICX and WAVES, but I think it is better to be safe than sorry and therefore I have just disabled staking untill it is more clear what the situation is with DCG.
There are many good reasons to take risks right now. I don't care if the market collapses once more, but I'll make sure to prioritize my favorite assets, such as Geeq, which has practical uses. Since ICX has a huge market in Korea, I'm also including it.
Not sure if i regret it, but the list of people i got into crypto is too big 😅 First, i convinced a friend of mine who knows nothing about how banks work, imagine how much she knows about crypto. She understood the risk, and gave me 100$ to put into something. That coin is dead now. Not too bad. Then i convinced 4 friends to invest 500$ each, around the bull time 2017 (neo, dash, stellar, tron…) they didnt reach that ATH yet 😅 Then, around 2020 i convinced a colleague to invest, so he added 1000$ into ICX, then i met his brother and his best man. And then a friend of a best man… Man, none of them made any profit 😅
I'm happy using Icon myself (I am a node on the network too). ICX transactions happen in 2 seconds and cost basically nothing. I also can use ICX in DeFi/gaming/NFTs etc. I'm also not hating on Nano myself, those fast and cheap TXs are awesome. Just no need for me personally.
>Looking back at its performance over 2021, the highest it ever got during the last bull run was only $12 a coin It actually went to around $16. I actually wanted to take some profits on mine at that point (my target was to sell some at $15) but it was during the spam attack and Binance had disabled deposits (plus I might not have been able to send it out of my Natrium wallet anyway). To answer your question - there were so many! These are the ones I held: Nano, Iota, ICX, Neo, OMG. The most shilled coins of yesteryear
I'm pretty relaxed tbh, I've got some trips, but come November payday, I'll be dumping a bit of cash into crypto at the end of each month until the prices rebound. Bit of Eth, chunk of ADA, maybe some BNB or ICX or ERGO and one or two others
Just send 1 ICX on the Icon network. Transaction took 2 seconds and cost a fraction of a cent (0.0003 USD to be specific). https://tracker.icon.foundation/transaction/0x116791951f787336231d6c6a55e14924aa61132a2bb641c5a34f5acd1f8afcc2
Best: Kinda embarrassing but probably HEZ. I didn't RTFM and thought Polygon-Hermez was gonna use it instead of MATIC token. Somehow still made a profit when I sold it. Also kinda feel bad for selling it, oh well. Worst: idk, maybe ICX. Or maybe when I opened a ETH-CRV uniswap LP and lost ETH when the ratio didn't move in my favour.
Nice explanation! I bought some Kdx on the zero gas fees dex Kaddex and going to buy a ledger hopefully I will be able to keep it there as my ICX. Hardware wallets are the safest way to keep cryptos and many users are sleeping on it, it's way secure than keeping our cryptocurrencies on Metamask or Trust Wallet of course.
The project i am following since 2017 and still believing it will go to top 10 😁 is ICX. Its not dead, quite active on Github with big things to come. Just a lot of course changes over the time that slowed down the implementation.
ICX launched in 2017 and is still going strong. Dozens of different sub communities within the Icon ecosystem building dapps, games, NFTs etc. * 2s transaction time/finality, * Cheap transactions, * Smart contracts, * On Mainnet & Decentralised, * Decentralised funding grants, * Bridging/Interoperability, * Decentralised ID, * Partnerships with Korean government, * Partnerships with Korean banks, * Partnerships with Korean conglomerates, Just no solid price action or trading volume. So we're apparently a 'ded' coin as well.
This sub is the inverse signal for everything related to defi or crypto. Most of the users here were fudding USDT and shilling LUNA. Half of the sub is still bagholding ICX, VET or NANO. Absolutely 0 people should be here for financial advice or economic philosophy.
Bitcoin and Ethereum were (and still are) my two largest holdings, but I also added to my alts (XMR, Nano, NEO, ICX, IOTA, VET). My best profit was actually from VET which did a 3000%. I didn't sell all of it though, but about half. Nano, Neo, Iota and ICX did turn green for me during 2021 because I bought some right near the bottom (having previously bought the very top in 2018), but they never came close to their ATH. Atom and ADA were 2 new coins I added later (eoy 2020) that performed really well. I didn't start taking profits until things were really flying, and my strategy was to sell about 10% at a time on the way up. That way if it crashed I had some profits to reinvest, and if it kept on going up there was no sellers regret as I still had plenty more to enjoy the ride with. It wasn't a perfect strategy, but it worked out pretty well and I plan to do a similar thing if/when we get another bullrun, most likely a couple of years from now in my opinion
ICX we're in our second bear market and hanging in there. In 2018 we were looking forward to mainnet, decentralisation, decentralised ID, and public-private chain bridging (ie Korean conglomerates to our oublic chain). This time around we've got lots of dapps/defi/NFTs launching/running. The Icon Foundation itself is focused on trustless public-public interoperability. So development wise things are growing and improving constantly, but the 90% drawdown in a bear is rough.
Surprised to see so many coins here that are far from dead, for example LSK, NANO, IOTA, ICX, NEO and POWR. I mean they might not be doing so great in terms of price but they are definitely not dead when you look at their development, community and exchange listings. Opposite even, some of them are very active and have even gained new big exchange listings last months. Anyways one of my old fallen darlings is XEM/XYM.. looked so promising. I've held a sizable portion since 2017 and it's recent death still confuses me. Weird too since it's really hard to find any information about it.
I started during the 2017/2018 cycle right before the crash, I'm talking late-November/early-December and watched it all go down as my first experience in crypto. What I'll say is to focus on strong projects, your crypto portfolio should have 50% bare minimum in safe assets(BTC/ETH). If you're trying to get into alts during a bear market, locate diversified ones with strong teams/communities. Half of the alts I went into in 2018 are nowhere near their ATHs(XVG, NEO, ICX, WAN, XRP, XLM, NANO, REQ, QSP, etc.) Once you find ones you have a strong conviction in, DCA downwards on them as well as ETH/BTC. Seeing BTC down to 3500 and ETH down to 85, you'd be screaming at yourself that you didn't go in harder. Never put in more than you're willing to lose. This cycle has LP farming & staking, so you can use those to hedge a bit. Lastly, HODL and stop staring at your portfolio every 15 minutes.
I most definitely use the Icon ecosystem the most. There I am: * Part of a DAO bonding ICX and running a node, * Staking ICX, * https://cps.icon.community - Decentralised funding grants, * https://Balanced.Network - DeFi loans, DEX, * https://OMM Finance - Money Market, * https://Optimus.Finance - Yield Optimiser, * https://Craft.Network - NFT Marketplace, * https://ProjectNebula.net - NFT Spaceship game.
Haha, same bro. Proud ICX, NANO, NEO and IOTA buyer here. Made a binance account to buy those coins, and the BNB I got for reduced trading fees is now worth more than all of those would be. Learned some hard lessons and axed everyting I got back then and now hold mostly BTC and ETH.
Not any that didn't survive, but many that never came close to hitting their previous ATH. Nano, IOTA, ICX and NEO (actually Neo came *fairly* close to matching its ATH, but didn't get there). These were all coins with good tech that were very popular in here, similar to the likes of ADA and ATOM this time around
**It often takes 2 cycles to kill hypecoins.** After the 1st one, they linger as zombies for the second one as its bagholders still wait for a prophesized comeback and new ATH. Then they slowly slip into irrelevance and disappear for good as they slowly give up in silence. Hypecoins of the 2017 class in no particular order: XRP, XML, IOTA, ICX, NEO, DASH, NEM, EOS, LISK, OMG, WAVES, VET... Now that the 2nd bear is here, these will finally fall into obscurity, little by little, and most are now well beyond the top 60. I bet most of the 2021 class people have never even seen half of those ever mentioned in here. And believe me when I tell you each one of these shitcoins was once obnoxiously shilled in here for weeks or *months* on end. Now you're not gonna want to hear this, but the same fate awaits the hypecoins of 2021. They will be replaced by new ones in the next cycle, and its bagholders will finally give up as they FOMO during the bull or capitulate in the bear. 🐷
To be honest I don't have any regrets about any of my 2017/18 holds. But my 2 worst performers price wise from back then (buying at the ATH in January 2018) are: Neo: Bought at $160. Current price $13. ICX: Bought at $9.30. Current price 40c. Despite DCA on those 2 during the previous bear market they are still well in the red, although they did turn green briefly last year, but not green enough to make me want to sell. I did take profits this time around on a few of my other holdings during the bull run (made some good profits on ADA and VET), so although I have a few things I would have done differently in hindsight, I don't really have any big regrets. It's all a learning experience. But here's one that hurts a little: I received a Neta airdrop on the Juno Network that was worth 30k at it's peak, and didn't sell. Today it's worth $700. So for that alone I feel I've earned my *moron* badge, lol.
And still around. I believe their new tech on interoperability will be the key to their succes. The wondergame use case demonstrates that. Minting with ICX and it shows up in the Harmony One wallet. I know this coin resides in the shadows, but I think this will change.
ICX - icon bridge is launched and BTP is around the corner. This interoperability beast will shine! ONE - already partnering with ICX in the Alice in Wonderland inspired NFT game: Wonder Game! JUNO - a lot of building is happening, also projects from Terra coming over ETH - you need a ‘safe’ coin, right?! GM - Ghostmarket! A wonderful interoperable NFT marketplace, this is truly a gem. Blockchains available are: ETH, NEO, Polygon, Avalanche, Phantasma and BSC! How about that!
ICX Definition of talk the talk but never walk the walk. They brag about being the biggest interoperability project in all of crypto and 5 years later, it has zero chains connected. They claimed all these partnerships like Samsung, South Korean government, etc and they're all vaporware. They also got investigated for tax fraud last year and had another bug where it allowed users to mint ICX tokens indefinitely. Owner only tweets about LUNA to desperately distract the community about his own failed chain and shift the focus elsewhere. He says the chain is "alive" even though transactions are down to a 1/3 of past couple years and the supply has only tripled since ICO. Their only working use cases are literally some knock off DeFi and NFT's.
When people they will wake up u guys repeating the same thing from 2017 ICX etherum killer fast and cheap bla bla and what happened died NEO Chinese Ethereum - dead Qtum - second Chinese ethereum dead too EOS - Dead U have to accept the truth all these "ethereum killers" are killing one thing theh are killing their bag hodlers 😁 Now we will have new coins to be added to the list Fantom Solona Avalanche
You can't say that about BTC ETH Nano or ADA However I agree with you that meme coins, 99% of defi, Gamfi etc are all scams since their coin is useless and got no usecase Take for example trash defi coin it will say The usage of coin is to stake it in order to mint more coins then you can dump it on the market They made $$$ selling something useless Now hodlers they will have hard time waiting for last year prices and these prices might not come same with what happened in 2017 if u remember ICX and other over hyped projects So nothing bad about following the trend and cash out Luna before the rug pull it did 370x in a year! So high risk and high reward Most of crypto trash true The value & the future in BTC and Ethereum
>I think this is a fine list, but projects like ICX and WanChain are likely over with. Not so sure about ICX, they are still trying to push adoption in S. Korea and S. Korea itself is also pushing blockchain tech a lot. Trading volume by Koreans is also way more percentage wise than it was in 2017/2018, which means they may actually like it. Sure the chain itself doesn't have much active dApps, but tbh after this bull run I realize most activity on smart chains was from ponzi like DeFi and some weird ass P2E games anyway.
True u should believe in the tech and other fundamentals to invest in the project But I can't imagine how people make 370x in a year like Luna or 800x in FTM They had long time to sell but no we are undervalued compared to ETH wtf Greed is unbelievable And most of alts hodler they will hodl for years to recover last year prices And might not happen! Remember ICX iota etc same story
I think this is a fine list, but projects like ICX and WanChain are likely over with. They are remnants from a previous cycle that never achieved what they set out to do after 5 years. The price action reflects this. We’re in a bear market. Any alt projects you’d like to invest in today will likely drop another 50% or more over the next few months. Even if you’re fine with that, their is no guarantee that a newer, shiner project shows up in 2023/2024 to steal the thunder from a current favorite alt. I’d only start investing in alts if BTC goes below the 200W moving average, and even then I’d be wary.
The thing is even if nobody gives a fuck about ICX today, it still managed to do a 16x from bottom to ath in last bull run. I'd say if you can get some cheap prices on alts in the next couple of months/quarters, investing in the top10 is a pretty good deal.
