Nobody could have imagined how the market would develop when Bitcoin was initially made available to the public. There are currently several cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, which the market is worth more than a trillion dollars. Every day, billions are moved, and the applications that blockchain and cryptocurrencies have given rise to are astounding.

More than 10,000 distinct cryptocurrencies were available on the market as of 2022. It may take a full-time job just to keep track of all the pennies. However, many of those won't ever get big enough to demand your attention. Only a small portion of that total has actual potential and effects on the real world at any time.

The Top Cryptocurrencies to keep a close eye on in 2023


The price of XRP has remained down as investors grow concerned about the future of Ripple and its owner, Ripple Labs, as the protracted SEC vs. Ripple case continues to drag on.

Ripple, a payments network for banks and financial organisations, uses XRP as its native cryptocurrency. Banks and other financial institutions utilise Ripple, a platform built on its blockchain, XRP Ledger, to settle transactions rapidly and affordably. Some of the biggest banks in the world have accepted XRP due to its practical applicability to financial organisations, which could prove vital in the asset’s price as more trust will automatically lead to good market performance.

If Ripple Labs prevails in the legal battle, the price of XRP will probably rise. Not just because investors view this as a very favorable indicator for the coin, but also because it may allow Ripple to pursue its initial objective of challenging the SWIFT banking system and altering the status quo of finance. If this occurs, prices would probably soar, like they did in April 2021, reaching somewhere between $1 and $1.50.

It may be devastating for XRP if they lose, though. According to Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple Labs, losing the lawsuit is "priced in" and would merely maintain the "status quo." Wishful thinking, this. Investors who were betting on a victory would sell off their tokens in the event of a favorable decision since Ripple Labs would no longer be a cryptocurrency token but rather a security. It is conceivable that XRP would lose the confidence of the whole crypto market and fall much worse. It's possible to anticipate that XRP might decline as much as $0.10 to $0.20.


Given that millions of former FTX customers are expected to migrate to Binance for their new exchange following the recent bankruptcy of FTX Global, investors are now searching for a BNB price forecast.

While a significant number of investors flooding the market in pursuit of the next great coin helped propel the growth of cryptocurrencies in 2021, the bulk of the euphoria will likely have worn off as word spreads about the frequency of frauds, rug pulls, and dishonesty. On the surface, this may appear to be a bad thing, but it may really allow deserving assets like BNB a chance to shine.

Binance, one of the most popular marketplaces for buying, trading, and transferring cryptocurrencies, has BNB as its native token. On the Binance platform, fees can be paid with BNB. These costs are frequently less than what you would pay if you paid them in another currency. On the Binance platform, it may be used to purchase other cryptocurrencies giving it an added advantage, especially when the bull market returns.

With its BUSD token, Binance may wind up controlling the stablecoin market. There is no doubt about the liquidity of BUSD given that Binance is the largest exchange by volume and is said to have about $70 billion in cash on hand. As a result, the stablecoin may gain prominence as investors look for a secure place to keep their money.

Cardano (ADA)

One of Ethereum's co-founders, Charles Hoskinson, developed the Cardano smart contract platform in 2015. Its use of a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm rather than a proof-of-work approach distinguishes it from other coins. As a result, it uses less energy than other blockchain technologies. To put things in perspective, processing Bitcoin transactions use about 110 Terawatt Hours annually, comparable to the energy use of tiny nations like Sweden. Cardano is claimed to be 1.6 million times more energy-efficient than Bitcoin.

They are now aiming to include Plutus, a new programming language that will facilitate the creation of smart contracts. With the already done and more anticipated developments on the ecosystem, ADA could see itself fetching desirable prices in the coming days.

Dogecoin (DOGE)

In 2013, Dogecoin was created as a joke. Although it might have started as a joke, it has now developed into one of the more well-known cryptocurrencies. This is primarily because it is affordable and available to everyone.

It's a coin for the people, and it's been used for good deeds like sending aid to Kenya to fund the construction of water wells. Dogecoin has seen recent surges in prices due to remarks made by one of its biggest fans, Elon Musk, and could soon see more of them as Elon recently acquired Twitter and reportedly is working on crypto payments for the platform.

Ethereum (ETH)

The second-largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, was launched in 2015 and swiftly climbed to prominence. It was created with a different purpose than Bitcoin and is utilised for several intriguing decentralised applications (DApps).

The decentralised platform Ethereum is where smart contracts are executed. These are the kinds of programs that the Ethereum blockchain can support. These contracts are computer programs that function exactly as intended, with no chance of fraud or outside influence.

Smart contracts make only a few games and financial applications possible. NFTs first appeared on the blockchain with Ethereum. NFTs might be made, bought, and programmed in several intriguing ways using smart contracts, enabling artists to get royalties or NFTs to have special utilities. These tools allow players to purchase items and equipment with ether and utilise them in the game. With the induction of all these specs to the ETH ecosystem and its market stand, Ethereum remains a coin to watch all through.

With cryptocurrencies currently plunging hard due to the hyped FTX saga, these coins are ones to watch out for as crypto markets will be looking to recover amid the market crisis.
