3 Tokens to Watch in 2018
Beyond Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple, the “crypto world” is comprised of a multitude of tokens supporting diverse blockchain projects. There is literally something for everyone. Here are three tokens that caught my attention in recent times.
Market Cap as of 01/15/2018 ($912,298,386 USD)
Dentacoin is a blockchain concept aiming to improve the dental care industry. The associated Dentacoin ERC20 token was conceived to be used globally by all individuals.
The Dentacoin team launched its first tools last year:
Trusted Review Platform: this framework rewards patients for posting unedited reviews of the care they have received onto a blockchain.
Dentavox: a customer intelligence platform which seeks users’ opinions on dental health topics.
Dentacare: a mobile app that rewards people for establishing healthy dental care habits.
Market Cap as of 01/15/2018 ($224,683,933 USD)
VIBEHub is aiming to become a substantial VR and AR marketplace and hub. VibeHub’s initial token offering (ITO) recently made a lot of noise, becoming sold out in less than 5 minutes, raising $10 million (USD) in the process. Furthermore, the value of its token “Vibe” increased by a staggering 400% on January 10 (which put the price per coin above Ripple).
The project’s FAQ provides some insights on what users can expect in the future:
“You will be able to attend concerts, education seminars, play games and go on virtual dates all in VR on the VIBEHub application. VIBEHub will also focus on AR (Augmented Reality) as well, and will be available as those device become mainstream. You will also be able to access the platform without a VR or AR device, in a less immersive experience through modern browsers, Allowing everyone to participate.”
Market Cap as of 01/15/2018 ($167,413,783 USD)
CyberMiles is a new blockchain platform designed for commercial applications. CyberMiles has announced its first strategic partnership with peer-to-peer marketplace, 5miles. The platform aims to empower the decentralization of online marketplaces, it recently concluded an initial coin offering, raising close to $30 million (USD) from more than 100 countries.
2018 is a promising year for crypto tokens and I’m looking forward to learn about new exciting blockchain-related projects.
