Top 100 Altcoins—Which Will Survive Through the Bull Market?
Only 11 will make it to the "next round"
Since I started covering specific altcoins in my updates to premium subscribers, a few people have asked me to put everything into a list.
Hopefully, this does the trick. My take on each of the top altcoins as of December 2022, with the following information for each:
What problem it tries to solve.
My brief thoughts about the project.
Its performance against bitcoin over the past year or two (also previous history as applicable).
Video commentary when available, from the updates I published for premium subscribers between September 2022 and December 2022 (soon, January 2023).
Survivability score—how likely will it stay in the top 100 through the bull market. Not price or return on investment. Performance/returns depend on tokenomic design and whether you stake, mine, validate, delegate, lend, and do other things to grow your portfolio.
As you’ll see, Aptos (APT) is listed below but does not have a survivability score. It’s too new to rate.
(FYI any time you want me to share more about something, you can comment on any post, you don’t have to reply directly to the email 😀)
Only 6 altcoins from 2013’s top 100 stayed in the top 100 through December 2017. Can you guess which ones they are? Leave a comment with your guesses!
Not survive like “stay alive,” it’s just a catchy way to guess about future growth.
For example, of the 26 altcoins that stayed in the top 100 from 2017 to 2021, 21 slid down the list and only 14 ever made it back to 2017 levels—but many of them didn’t die (yet).
This table captures the likelihood of an altcoin staying in the top 100 through the bull market. You’ll see the score repeated for each altcoin’s entry below.
