What are the best cryptocurrencies to buy right now?

Let’s be honest, no one knows what the cryptocurrency market will do next. The best cryptocurrencies to buy will depend on what you’re looking for.

If you’re investing over the long term, then you may want to consider “blue-chips” like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) which have a relatively well-tested track record. These coins have been adopted by financial institutions around the world and have utility beyond speculative investing.

Short-term investments are much harder to pick. We’ve provided a range of metrics in addition to price to help you try and figure out if a coin has momentum and is likely to continue increasing in value. Use social media sentiment analysis and news to contextualize what price movements might mean and make an educated decision.

Keep in mind that most big run-ups in price are usually followed by a correction where the price comes back down after reaching a peak. So it is up to you to implement a strategy that allows you to exit with a profit before the market turns.

Each day we track and aggregate trending coins on the world’s largest exchange, Binance, as well as market data sites CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap.
