In a bearish and low volumes market like crypto at the moment, it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. That’s because, out of the desperation of holding heavy bags, one can easily find themselves chasing whatever pump and dump scheme that comes along, in a bid to minimize losses. But that’s the wrong way around it. If anything, this is a good time to focus on strong projects with a target of 2020 and beyond. That’s the only way to make any meaningful returns in the long-run. But then comes the question, what makes for a good project? When looking for good projects, there is a tendency to focus more on the price, and where it will be next week, next month or whenever. However, the best way around it is to focus on the potential use cases. Centralized systems are at their lowest point, and there is a monumental shift taking place towards decentralization. Once decentralized systems gain acceptance, cryptos whose use cases outperform existing systems will gain by a huge margin. These are the cryptos that have what it takes to gain in value in the long-haul. Two of them are Digibyte (DGB) and Vechain (VET).
Digibyte (DGB)’s core strength is in cybersecurity, and it’s one of the areas where decentralized systems have a strong use case going into the future. With the security systems of major corporations getting compromised every so often, it won’t be long before the need for unbreakable security systems emerges. This will place Digibyte (DGB) at a good position for growth going into the future. That’s because it is pretty much the most dominant player in terms of cybersecurity. The Digibyte blockchain is secured with 5 mining algorithms that makes it almost impenetrable. Digibyte-based security systems are slowly emerging, in terms of adoption. Just yesterday, Antum-ID, which already adopted Digi-ID announced that it would be making improvements that will make it easier for companies to integrate Digi-ID. This is a use-case that may look minor now, but one that has the potential to push up the levels of adoption of Digibyte going into 2020 and beyond. Once this use case gains traction. Digibyte could be the blockchain that secures the systems of major corporations going into the future, and significantly push up its price.
Vechain is another project that is looking to corner a high-value market. At the moment, lots of companies are grappling with the issue of counterfeits. Counterfeits have become so good that sometimes it is impossible for the end-user to tell a fake from the real thing. Big brands are losing billions through this, and it’s a real problem. Vechain looks to solve it by making it possible to track a product from the manufacturer all the way to the end consumer. This is a use case that will propel Vechain to new heights in the future. It may not push its value much in the short-term, but once it is accepted universally, Vechain (VET) investors, that can see the big picture in this bear run, stand to gain the most.
