Top 10 Cryptocurrencies

Join our growing community


We are currently in the most bullish moment in the crypto markets. We are talking about Bitcoin spot ETF inflows, Ethereum spot ETFs being approved, and China finally opening up to crypto, bringing huge liquidity events that could spark the next leg up in this bull run.

As several crypto projects stand out due to their innovative use cases, strong communities, and growth potential, let’s take a closer look at the top 10 cryptocurrencies to watch in 2024:

Bitcoin (BTC)

You could never go wrong with Bitcoin (BTC) as an investment. Bitcoin has a proven track record and the highest market capitalization in the crypto markets, making it a relatively stable investment for beginners and seasoned investors alike.

Moreover, many view Bitcoin as digital gold and a hedge against inflation and economic instability. Increasingly, institutional investors and financial institutions are already adopting Bitcoin through Bitcoin spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Ethereum (ETH)

With applications for Ethereum spot ETFs recently filed and expected approval soon, Ethereum (ETH) could become a more attractive option for investors seeking exposure to the cryptocurrency through a regulated product.

Ethereum is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap and the leading platform for Decentralized Finance (DeFi).

Additionally, investors believe that Ethereum’s price has room for significant growth, especially with the upcoming upgrade to Ethereum 2.0, which aims to address scalability issues and improve transaction speeds.

Binance Coin (BNB)

We all know that the Binance crypto exchange faced criticism from regulators worldwide for its loose compliance practices. This included issues like Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures and anti-money laundering (AML) controls. 

Additionally, news broke out in November 2023 where Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the former CEO of Binance, pleaded guilty as he failed to take required AML measures and stepped and agreed to pay $4.3 billion to settle related allegations.

With all of that settled, BNB remains a top 4 coin by market cap, showing strength amidst adversity. Additionally, with a new CEO running Binance, the company is shifting towards greater emphasis on regulatory compliance.

Solana (SOL)

After some network outages in the past, Solana has improved its stability this year. In addition, investor interest in the project is high, and the growth of the Solana ecosystem with DeFi platforms and other projects is fueling its popularity.

Solana also acquired significant interest from venture capital (VC) firms and institutional investors, and the backing provides a sense of legitimacy and stability, influencing its ranking and potentially driving future growth.

XRP (XRP)

Ripple Labs, the company behind XRP, offers a payment processing network designed for financial institutions. Communities behind Ripple and XRP believe the technology has merit and could be widely adopted in the future.

Despite the current SEC case with Ripple Labs, the XRP token still maintains a sizable market capitalization, indicating continued investor interest. Moreover, Ripple Labs has formed partnerships with numerous financial institutions worldwide. If XRP prevails in its case, these partnerships could also lead to widespread adoption.

Avalanche (AVAX)

AD 4nXd3 xubCZ78AiX82XUlSO G9vcPWBMmo aK62yHitTfp25Z0hG6ThHEQqJpMOofR zSZDYJN7l1YjBCxS2QuyjxRqQ

Ava Labs, the company behind Avalanche (AVAX), has partnered with major companies in the finance and crypto industries. These partnerships include Mastercard, Deloitte, and Amazon Web Services (AWS), making it a top project worth including in your crypto portfolio.

Avalanche aims to be a faster, cheaper, and more scalable alternative to Ethereum. Notably, the project has already led to a growing ecosystem of decentralized applications (dApps) built on its ecosystems, attracting developers and users looking for a smoother blockchain experience.

Render Network (RNDR)

With the Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks (DePIN) sector projected to add $10 trillion to the global GDP in the next decade, you should look for a DePIN project that has the potential to last a long time.

Render Network (RNDR) is a multi-narrative project that connects owners of idle GPU computing power with users who need it. GPU power is used in a wide array of tasks, from basic artist rendering to AI applications, and contributors are then compensated with the $RNDR token.

Projects like the Render Network could be an alternative decentralized solution to those of more expensive and centralized options like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud.

Toncoin (TON)

AD 4nXdQ2z MsMJ4MHYGZLYdDGKLD7PhKYZzGgNx927bR tBAZQk2nmHrswRE9an2YeZpzam5TGcn4

The Open Network (TON) is taking over Telegram, aiming to create a super app similar to what Elon Musk is trying to do right now with X (formerly Twitter) by combining social media with payments but through a decentralized structure.

Telegram has even given TON its stamp of approval, announcing it as its preferred blockchain. With over 900 million monthly active users on Telegram, this is a massive cheat code for TON to onboard all these users faster than any other blockchain.

Ondo Finance (ONDO)

Tokenization won’t just be the following narrative or a hot new trend; it is the future, as everything is currently transitioning to tokenized systems.

Notably, Ondo Finance (ONDO) recently hit $1.5 billion in the tokenization markets in terms of tokenized treasuries. However, Ondo Finance does not control all of that, but they did just reach $500 million in total value locked (TVL), which screams bullish.

Overall, we are talking about a project with 1/4 of the liquidity locked up, and investors couldn’t be more excited about it!

Artificial Superintelligence Alliance (ASI)

AD 4nXeqbNF6XohQpSwf 2leVhb J04hOnCoIPHRW15KPBG quZTFnIwQ Pfvdc5GYqnPBjVHtfXzvYNZ4MBcKCG9DFfw4gB8yb9E oFz4BdjsDF8tJgLEuLQgn iPCqvOK75j

Nvidia is continuously breaking market expectations as the artificial intelligence (AI) sector continues to get stronger. Most investors even agree that Nvidia would be a top company globally, reaching a $5 trillion market cap, and the crypto AI sector is expected to follow that path.

Therefore, getting exposure to AI cryptocurrencies would be a wise play for investors. However, the ASI token has yet to be released, as we are still waiting for the merger between SingularityNET (AGIX), Fetch.AI (FET), and Ocean Protocol (OCEAN) to happen sometime this year.

Final Thoughts

While the future holds no promises, this list provides a strong foundation for navigating the exciting yet volatile cryptocurrency market. However, it would still be wise to conduct your research to align your investments with your risk tolerance and long-term goals.
