If you have to pick 3 projects that are not ETH or BTC to buy for next 2 years, which one will it be and why? and how much coin will you buy? and do you think you will end up rich by next bull market or you think you need to wait until 2025 or 2026 to see some good gains. how much will you sell it?
I like to do what if calculations to put me to sleep, so if NEAR was to reach market cap that SOL had at its ATH, price per coin would be around 100 USD. Regardless of this, NEAR is one alt that I plan to start stacking when I eventually decide its time to expand my portfolio from BTC and ETH.
it was dead before it started mate. please stop with these uber shit coins lmao! literally if you're not IN at LAUNCH, like absolute NEAR bottom, do not even bother with them. and you bloody well sell if you're up, cause ALL of these ALWAYS DUMP. ALWAYS.
Secret has great tech but their bridge to other chains only supports a very small number of assets, which does not make it a suitable solution for privacy on EVM chains. It's gated basically and like Tron and Tomo, projects with gated bridges won't grow like ones with open bridges i.e. NEAR, Aurora, Fantom, Polygon... 0xMonero mixes on Ethereum and has a private bridge to BNB chain.
I invest in several, as no one knows which ones will succeed. Big positions:ETH, SOL (40% total) Medium positions:ADA, DOT, ATOM, MATIC, AVAX (50% total) Smaller positions: NEAR, ELROND (10% total) I usually only Invest in L1/L2 ínside Top 50 projects by market cap
Ethereum has the worst staking system of all POS cryptos. Most people can't technically stake or afford the Ethereum required to self stake and have to rely on Coinbase or Binance to stake for them, which centralizes control and opens up Ethereum to government control because Coinbase for example, is a regulated and compliant exchange. Are you ready to have your transactions censored or worse? What people need to do is self custody stake something like NEAR or ICP in their wallet. You get higher rewards, it's more decentralized, and safer for investors.
The [cosmos eco](https://tcnetwork.io/) probably has the best returns for staking. EVMOS really held its value despite its 3 digits APR, so you can look into that. But for less exposure to inflation, ATOM, NEAR & CTSI fits in for me.
First of all, great picks you have there. From the list of altcoins; NEAR and OP. I think you should also consider investing in new, high-potential projects that haven't been released yet. Pooky, a unique football results prediction NFT game building on Matic, FLUID, a crypto liquidity aggregator leveraging AI tech and strategies to address fragmented liquidity, and Aptos, a new L1 blockchain, are some you can look into.
Bullish on NEAR, SOL, EGLD and looking forward to THOL listing, real early tho, not listed yet..I also think that ALGO could come far in the next run, but most of the gems that will shine bright are still in early phases..every bull run has similar picture to it
Also, are you staking on AAVE? I was using that initially but moved to SPOOL because I heard middlewares are less risky than just a single yield generator. And they're plugged into it in any case amongst COMP, IDLE etc. You mentioned NEAR too. OCT is a good one on their ecosystem too.
Yeah. And so far you are doing better than me as I started investing earlier. :-) I accumulated DOT/XRP/LINK so far. Oh and Moons of course. I will add some other projects later if I get the time/desirable prices, like ATOM, NEAR, Arweave, and/or SOL. Yourself?
Well, that's awesome but the game can easily be adopted on any EVM compatible chain, why not expand into NEAR or VLX as well, or even Algorand when their L2 comes out for compatibility seems like an okaysh game but needs more platforms
I'm not bullish on cardano or ethereum long term. Neither one can scale to be used as a worldwide platform by billions of people, for that you need sharding/subnets like NEAR and ICP have. Each shard can do 1-2k TPS and can scale infinitely. The only problem would be if a DApp required over 2k TPS itself, which in that case it would require an appchain, which NEAR has with Octopus. Solana can do tens of thousands of TPS, so can Candle chain, but that is shared with all DApps, so one big DApp like a facebook on chain would make the chain unusable for all other DApps if there isn't any sharding.
tldr; Tether has launched USDT on the NEAR blockchain to help the DeFi ecosystem thrive, according to Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino. NEAR is a layer one smart contract blockchain that runs roughly 700 decentralized applications and processes 300,000 to 400,000 transactions per day. USK, a new algorithmic stablecoin, has also launched on Cosmos. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*
tldr; Solana (SOL) climbed to a three-week high to start the week, as the token moved towards the $40.00 level. Near protocol (NEAR) was also in the green, as prices rose by over 10% on Monday. Monday’s rally came as the 10-day moving average crossed its 25-day counterpart. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*
>In a bear market you can go shopping and find any project at 10-20% of former ath. Even stuff like AVAX, NEAR, ETH, ATOM, which pretty much every crypto enthusiast is bullish on long term. You new here? No reason why those coins couldn't be dead next year, look at the top 2017/2018 coins and where they are now.. NEO, XRP, TRX. Many coins will never go back to ATH, even the top long term coins from now.
tldr; The NEAR Foundation announced a $100 million venture capital fund with Caerus Ventures. The NEAR Protocol is a scalable blockchain with a globally distributed community that consists of 550,000 members and a total of 18 million accounts created. The second annual NEARCON is currently taking place. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*
The Swiss non-profit behind the NEAR Protocol is to collaborate with Caerus Ventures in launching a $100 million venture capital (VC) fund and venture lab. The NEAR Foundation said it would cornerstone the VC Fund, with an initial closing of $50 million and a target of $100 million for seed to series A investments. The proposed venture lab intends to attract the leading engineers, developers, and venture builders in the Web3 space, and will also offer cross-functional support to portfolio projects. The development comes on the heels of Swiss investment firm 21.co raising $25 million in its latest funding round last week, putting its valuation at $2 billion. What is the NEAR Protocol? Founded by Alexander Skidanov and Illia Polosukhin, the NEAR Protocol is a scalable blockchain with a globally distributed community that consists of 550,000 members and a total of 18 million accounts created. “Our cultural passions for live sport, film or music have historically been leveraged to on-ramp billions of consumers to new technologies,” said Marieke Flament, CEO of the NEAR Foundation. “The creators, talent, and franchises with reach and influence spearheaded that growth and will now drive the adoption of blockchain at scale,” she added. “But this time, they and their fans will have greater access to the value created.” NEAR has received funding from some top VCs including a16z, Pantera Capital, Electric Capital, Dragonfly Capital, Coinbase Ventures, Blockchain.com, and Baidu Ventures. Meanwhile, the second annual NEARCON convention, considered the flagship event of the NEAR Protocol, is currently being held in Lisbon, from which its native token has seen a significant jump in price. Caerus puts content creators first Caerus was founded by IMG/Endeavor talent executive Nathan Pillai, who said it would back projects that put creators, talent, IP owners, at the center of new enterprises. “We’re creating this partnership to help revolutionize the existing multi-layered entertainment ecosystems, growing the market size while promoting greater equity,” Pillai said. As many “use cases for how Web3 technologies will change how culture is experienced, entertainment is consumed, and value is distributed,” Pillai said Caerus hopes “to be a catalyst for innovation” for projects in sport, music, film, TV, fashion, art and gaming.
I am glad that NEAR is picking specific areas to use the fund. These funds are great at helping drive growth on an ecosystem. NEAR is a top 30 crypto that is rarely talked about. It recently got native Tether support which is a big deal in terms of potential growth.
USDT is not my preferred stablecoin, but I think it is great news for NEAR that they are getting stablecoins released directly on the network. Most stablecoins are bridged from Ethereum and this puts in place another area where hackers can attack.

It's funny because in a bull market of you want to get long, you are buying the "quality" projects at 10-20x their previous ATH. Or you buy some shitty abandoned project at 2-3x ATH. In a bear market you can go shopping and find any project at 10-20% of former ath. Even stuff like AVAX, NEAR, ETH, ATOM, which pretty much every crypto enthusiast is bullish on long term. That's how you make yacht money. You go in with conviction on a good project in a bear market. I mean I think we could all see those coins doing a 10X or better if we go back to a bull market in the next few years.
Right, but I'm saying theoretically, let's say algorand or NEAR implemented IBC; would bridging between algorand/NEAR and, say, OSMO be as secure as bridging between two cosmos native chains, say OSMO and JUNO? What about bridging between algorand and NEAR via IBC?
I’ve been waiting for this sub to get on-board with Cosmos for some time now and I don’t think it’s long until folks will be. Whether you realize it and whether you like it or not Cosmos is slowly taking over the blockchain space. Polkadot and Kusama have cross-parachain communication thanks to Composable Finance building IBC support. NEAR is nearing completion of their IBC connection. Algorand has decided it’s worth discussing IBC implementation now that they have state proofs. Cardano will be bridged to Cosmos via Milkomeda EVM chain and Sifchain Peggy bridge. Even the long forgotten EOS is now looking into how they can implement IBC. There are also more chains than people realize that run on Cosmos tech; like Binance Chain, Crypto\.com/Cronos, Polygon, Thorchain and more. Cosmos is everywhere.
Her name was LUNA. Or maybe it was DOT… Saw her at the GALA.She WAVES at me and I DASH to her. I take out my 1INCH BAT and she says OMG. I go APE and am NEAR and tell her she better not DOGE.
>Aurora community is dead. Ergo subreddit scores in the top ten (above SOL, actually) for activity among L1s. Never heard of it but looks like it's solidity compatible and tied to NEAR (Ie, lots of funding, and the heavy lifting was already done). I literally don't give a fuck about your subreddit stats. I want on chain stats. And every stat I can see says Aurora is doing better. >We build permissionless systems so we don't need proof. Ergo has that, ETH does not. It's really that simple. You need proof that a system is permissionless. What are you even saying? You're actually just putting buzzwords together. ETH's distribution is way better than Ergo's. ETH's top 10k holders hold about 56% of ETH. Ergo's top 10k hold 74%. Also there's literally a dev fee built into Ergo. I don't want to hear about unfair. The devs should have to mine just like anyone else for it to be "fair" according to your logic of fair. Or would it have been alright for ETH devs to have put in a dev fee then sell the ETH after? >Show me a smart contract platform built from scratch with a fair start that's doing better than Ergo. What do these parameters even mean? eUTXO isn't unique to Ergo it was in Cardano first so by your own logic even Ergo wasn't built from scratch. So I guess I'll go with Cardano.
