7Up! Seven Buy-Before-Fork-Coins
There is much hope out there, that the volume is flushing back into the alts after the hard fork is officially finished on the 25th of October and the folks have received their oh-so-great Bitcoin Gold. We already started our six sexy coins we are going to invest in (or did already as the price targets were hit) before the fork date. The discount in alt-mart is somewhat teasing, so we extended the list to seven more coins in this post. We want to hold these coins before the money hopefully comes back and revives the altcoin market. We have carefully chosen 7 very promising coins/tokens, that is rock solid and might come back up to where they have been or even higher. We set up a live portfolio on coin compare, so you can watch the show and the amount of growth we have been able to achieve post-BTG fork. In this portfolio we have thrown $100 at each of the items, you find the link at the end of this post.
Let’s see how our selection will turn out!
7. $DNT – district0x
The district0x network consists of decentralized markets and communities called ‘districts’. Ethereum, Aragon and IPFS make it possible for the users to create, operate, and govern each district on the network rather than a centralized company. The district0x network lowers the bar of entry to creating a marketplace app or community similar to Upwork, Etsy, Uber or Airbnb, even if you aren’t a developer.
We think that district0x offers a great infrastructure for the sharing economy. It becomes slowly adopted with more and more projects that make use of it (like ETHLANCE for example). The price is very low right now and has much room to go north. The project is more than legit and far away from a shitcoin.

6. $UBQ – Ubiq
Ubiq is a decentralized platform which allows the creation and implementation of smart contracts and decentralized applications. Built upon an improved Ethereum codebase, the Ubiq blockchain acts as a large globally distributed ledger and supercomputer, allowing developers to create decentralized and automated solutions to thousands of tasks which today are carried out by third party intermediaries.
UBIQ is often referred to as Ethereums little brother and is currently so undervalued that it physically hurts. The project is one of the most promising and versatile ones, and with the growing success of Ethereum, UBIQ will grow as side by side. Currently, trading in a downwards channel, near the lower Bollinger Bandit is a great time to enter, especially with the upcoming Ethereum forks in mind.

5. $ADX – AdEx
AdEx is a blockchain-based ad exchange aiming at disrupting the existing online advertising landscape and address its significant problems: advertising fraud, privacy and consent to receiving sponsored messages, etc. AdEx is completely transparent and built on top of Ethereum smart contracts. We believe we can empower advertisers and publishers with a platform that is secure, transparent and beneficial for all the parties involved in the process, consumers included.
Adex has been a rollercoaster within the last weeks. 100% gains are not rare with Adex, though the drops come in after those rises, so you want to have a close eye on it. Is Adex a Pump and Dump coin? We don’t think so, its way is upwards, although in a volatile manner. If you want to get in at discount rate, you have to hurry, as it seems to climb already for the next round.
4. $KMD – Komodo
Komodo presents its decentralized ICO platform (dICO). This technology guarantees coin developers to launch a transparent coin offering while maintaining investors’ privacy through Komodo’s built-in privacy features. For the first time in crypto history it’s possible to issue and distribute native cryptocurrencies without a trusted third party. So a dICO doesn’t differentiate itself from other ICOs by decentralization only, it also needs Komodo Platform’s Jumblr technology to guarantee complete privacy for all ICO parties. Furthermore, dICOs on Komodo Platform don’t require high fees as each asset chain is an independent blockchain secured by dPoW, enabling all dICO transaction fees to be paid with the dICO coin.
We like everything Komodo! The ICO market is still growing and has much room to peak – Komodo with its an approach to decentralize ICOs might be an important step into reviving/maintaining investors’ trust in this form of crowdfunding. A new website is coming up and the tokens have real use on their platform. Looking good to us!
3. $NEO – NEO
NEO, formerly Antshares, is China’s first ever open source blockchain. Founded in 2014, NEO’s mission has been to reinvent the way commerce is done. We believe technology drives progress and together we can create the future. Motivated by this, NEO has been created to shift our traditional economy into the new era of the Smart Economy.
We are pretty sure: NEO Smart Economy will play an important role in the mass adoption of crypto in China. Once their ban things have completely settled the “Chinese Ethereum” will soar more and more. By the time writing this NEO trades at 0.00739 sat, which is already a good entry price for what is about to come. Please think of holding NEO in a real wallet (not on an exchange) to have it generate GAS, which can be traded separately. Some people think it is too late to get in, as it reached already 100x growth, we think we should use the current blood bath to get some more.
(Please remind that NEOs are traded without any decimals, so be sure to enter the amount of NEO, not USD to see its lowest price.)
2. $OMG – OmiseGo
OmiseGO is the answer to a fundamental coordination problem amongst payment processors, gateways and financial institutions. By enabling decentralized exchange on a public blockchain at high volume and low cost, OmiseGO provides a next-generation value transfer service operating across currencies and asset types. Through the OmiseGO network connected to the Ethereum mainnet, anyone will be able to conduct financial transactions such as payments, remittances, payroll deposit, B2B commerce, supply-chain finance, loyalty programs, asset management and trading, and other on-demand services, in a completely decentralized and inexpensive way. Further, millions of mainstream users in the largest growing economies in the world will be enabled to make the transition from using fiat money to using decentralized currencies such as ETH, BTC, and others. The OmiseGO network is intrinsically agnostic between fiat and decentralized money: as far as adoption and usage go, the system is constructed so that the best currencies will win.
Pardon me the stupid comment, but OMG, this is a real bargain! $OMG has true potential, many important partnerships are waiting in the next months and right now you have a good chance to get in pretty cheap. Omisego will play a major role in crypto mass adoption in the Asian market, so we don’t want to stay behind. It is trading right now outside the Bollinger Band on the daily chart – with the hard fork release coming, it won’t get much better, we guess.

1. $ETH – Ether
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.
“Ether? Come on, guys – get creative!” Yes, we hear you. We would have wanted a coin on #1 that nobody knows and has huge potential, but hey – look at the price of it right now? It is THE coin to be said, to outgrow Bitcoin over time. It is the money of smart contracts and still has a bright future. This could be our last chance to get into ETH that cheap – We will use it to fill our bags!
