Maps (MAPS) is a popular decentralized protocol that works similarly to Google maps but with the power of blockchain technology. The cryptocurrency has made it to our top gainers’ list of the week as it surged upwards by nearly 167% during the past seven days.

Top Weekly Losers

Where on one hand the cryptocurrency market is filled with coins reaching towards the moon, we also have plenty of coins that are tumbling downwards. Here are the top five coins that have lost the most value in the weekly timeframe:

Upfiring (UFR) is the top loser in our list as its lost 63% of its value during the week; however, the downtrend of the token has been effectively reversed and it has gained back by more than 60% during the daily timeframe. Upfiring was created to present an alternative to the traditional peer-to-peer file-sharing mechanism.

Alitas (ALT) has been on a steady downtrend and has lost 58% of its value during the past week. The daily price movement further reinforces the downtrend of the token as it continues to lose value. Currently, the token stands at a price level of $11.02. The network has introduced new technologies and aims to become the underlying infrastructure for the new generation of networks.

Router Protocol (ROUTE) is another loser of the week as the token declined by 53%. However, the daily price action suggests a possible reversal of the downtrend which will turn the current time period to be an ideal buy time if the trend reversal materializes effectively. Currently, the token stands at a price level of $3.92 with a minor positive change during the day.

AstroSwap (ASTRO) fell brutally as January ended and lost 52% of its value during the week. However, the market corrections may have ended for the token as it gained by 34% during the day. AstroSwap is the first interstellar DEX and is built on top of Cardano. Currently, the cryptocurrency stands at a price level of $0.079.

GameZone (GZONE) is the final loser of the week and like most other losers, GZONE token is also showing signs of a trend reversal. The cryptocurrency has lost 37% of its value during the week but the bullish day in the market resulted in a gain back of 10% of its value. The token is currently trading hands at $0.16.

Hottest ICOs to Watch Out

Active ICOs

The current bearish outlook of the crypto market cannot deter your crypto portfolio gains if you play smart. Investing in ICOs is one of the ways to do that. Here are some of the active projects that you should look into:

Stader Labs is a platform designed to maximize yields from the crypto market by enabling users to diversify their risk in an efficient and simple manner. It provides various financial products built on top of staked assets in just a single tap. The ICO of the project is expected to end during the current day and so far, it has raised $16,500,000 out of the total fundraising goal of $39,990,000.

As the metaverse realm has achieved new heights, upcoming projects in the segment possess good potential. LunaVerse is a new project to be launched soon that you may want to look into if you were looking for metaverse-based projects. LunaVerse is a metaverse built on the blockchain of Terra. The token sale of the project will end in six days and it has a fundraising goal of $3,100,000.

Anchor Protocol is another Terra-based project which appears to be good investment potential. The protocol essentially offers yields on the stablecoins based on Terra’s blockchain and since stablecoins are known for their stability, the yields are also said to be less volatile than what you usually find in the crypto market. The ICO of the project will end in 23 days.

Atlas DEX is a unique decentralized exchange. Apart from the usual functionalities of decentralized exchanges, it is also a cross-chain liquidity aggregator which ensures it will not suffer from the lack of liquidity that DEXs often face. It offers cross-chain swaps across Ethereum, Polygon, Binance smart Chain, and Solana. The token sale of the project will end in 24 days.

Brickken is a tokenization platform powered by blockchain technology. The platform allows a variety of products – including businesses and various assets – to be tokenized so that users can earn passive income through them. The token sale will end in a month’s time and the project has set its fundraising goal at $2,000,000.

Upcoming ICOs

While it is a good way to diversify your portfolio, ICOs are also high-risk investments so if you need time to think about the ideal projects, look into some of the upcoming projects.

Creaton is essentially a subscription-based platform for content creators but designed for the future of the internet. It is based on Web 3.0 and is regarded by the team to be the first of its kind. The platform truly empowers content creators. The token sale of the project is expected to begin on 7th February.

FuseFi is another highly-anticipated project and may turn out to be a good bet. The project is focused on the decentralized finance sphere and it aims to help the DeFi segment reach new heights by eliminating bottlenecks and enabling frictionless DeFi. The token sale will begin on the 18th of February.

ChainPort is working towards enabling interoperability in the blockchain market as the lack of interoperability is one of the pain points of the market. It is regarded as a next-generation bridge with high-level security and increased efficiency. The ICO of the project is expected to begin somewhere in February while the fundraising goal of the project is to raise $150,000.

Themis is a crypto lending project; however, what sets it apart is that it allows the lending of collateralized NFTs. Users can borrow, auction, lend and leverage through their NFTs and as the NFT market is growing at a high pace, Themis is tapping into a high-potential niche. The token sale is expected to begin in February with a date yet to be announced.

Muon Network is the final ICO of the week on our list. Muon is providing completely decentralized nodes as a service. Moreover, through its value proposition, it is working towards enabling the growth of the metaverse segment. The fundraising goal of the project is set at $2,940,000.
