OmiseGO (OMG) is a token-based digital currency backed by the Plasma decentralized exchange and a digital wallet provided by Omise.
The technology behind OmiseGO revolves around providing super-fast payments and linking e-wallets for different types of fiat and digital currencies.
It’s designed to facilitate payments for goods and services on the web to and to enable the cross-border transfer of assets. Backed up by the Ethereum Foundation, the project’s extremely successful ICO held in June sold out before it had even gone live to the public.
OMG has been one of the year’s best performers and currently trades at around $7.00 after launching with an ICO price of just $0.24. Most OMG observers have been waiting for a suitable entry point and now is as good a time as any. Prior to the downturn experienced by altcoins because of Bitcoin forks, OMG was generally trading at around $8.00. Since that time, the price has dropped to $6, but has recently bounced back above $7. However, OmiseGO is a popular project with both Western and Asian investors and the OMG token has recorded returns of over 2000% since its ICO as well as recording an all-time high price of over $12. Many feel that OMG provides great value at its current market cap of around $640M so look for significant positive price action in the months to come.
Komodo (KMD) is both a cryptocurrency and decentralized ICO platform that is designed for maximum security and privacy.
The Komodo platform is intended to provide smart contracts as well as blockchain-based solutions.
Komodo is linked to Bitcoin, and uses a consensus mechanism that is backed by the Bitcoin hashrate. Komodo also allows anonymous transactions via zk-SNARKS technology and KMD is a currency on the rise.
Komodo is a technology that has been attracting a lot of interest in the crypto community thanks to a number of unique and this looks set to increase with its hosting of the Monaize ICO in mid-November.
Komodo Platform is expanding into an entire ecosystem, starting with our strategic banking partner Monaize. On November 10th, we will perform the world’s first Decentralized ICO (“dICO”). Future entrepreneurs choosing to build on the Komodo platform will receive an entire blockchain package, capable of performing a decentralized crowdfund and acting as an independent blockchain.
The Monaize ICO will be the first to utilize cross chain atomic swaps and investors who donate KMD will automatically receive the MNZ token in return. Komodo has been one of the few altcoins to actually increase in value during the Bitcoin fork period and traded at just under $2.00 leading up to November. Since then KMD has continued to rise in price and currently trades above the $2 mark.
With its innovative use of technology and ability to host blockchain projects on its platform, Komodo is a cryptocurrency to watch for the rest of the year.

EOS is a new blockchain operating system designed to support commercial-scale decentralized applications. EOS is going to be one of the hottest ICOs on Ethereum network. Even though, Ethereum is just a place for EOS to fund (EOS will have its own blockchain). I expect EOS market cap position to clime in the list because EOS will conduct its crowdsale for the whole year!
I have participated to ICO 29.-30.7.2017 (round #30). I got EOS Tokens 6,4% discount compared to Exchange price (0.008673023 ETH/EOS).
Seven hundred million additional EOS Tokens (representing 70% of the total EOS Tokens being distributed) have been split evenly into 350 consecutive 23-hour periods of 2 million tokens each and will be distributed at the close of each period. The remaining 100 million EOS Tokens (representing 10% of the total EOS Tokens being distributed) have been reserved for block.one as founder’s tokens pursuant to the feedback received from the community to ensure that block.one has aligned interests with those participating in the EOS Token distribution. If a blockchain adopting the EOS.IO software is launched, these founder’s tokens will be locked and released over a period of 10 years.
Brendan Blumer, CEO of block.one said:
“We felt an approximately year-long token distribution was the best method to ensure people receive fair market value for EOS Tokens. We anticipate that strong interest will continue throughout the year as the community continues to learn about the EOS.IO software and the benefits it can bring to their business.”

It’s the fastest and most scalable digital asset, enabling real-time global payments anywhere in the world.
Built for enterprise use, XRP offers banks and payment providers a reliable, on-demand option to source liquidity for cross-border payments.
Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.
These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middle man or counterparty risk.
The project was bootstrapped via an ether pre-sale during August 2014 by fans all around the world. It is developed by the Ethereum Foundation, a Swiss nonprofit, with contributions from great minds across the globe.
