This week, we asked the Invstr Community which cryptocurrency they wanted in Fantasy Finance. The poll had a major plurality, with 44 percent of Invstrs wanting access to USD Coin. USD Coin is essentially a digital dollar, which makes it a very stable crypto that people are interested in, and it has the 9th highest market capitalization out of all cryptos. However, that is also a downside as many use cryptos for high-growth investments, which makes this a surprising first place finish. In second place is the addition of Filecoin. Filecoin provides a decentralized storage system where users can store information, and it is not mineable. It has the 25th highest market capitalization, and it is volatile while having a use for the future, which justifies its case as second place in the poll.
For last place, we have a tie between Orchid and Algorand, with each taking 14 percent of the vote. Orchid works as a decentralized VPN, once again taking a digital twist to a daily norm. Orchid does contain some volatility, but it is a pretty small crypto, which could be the reason for its finish in the poll. Algorand, however, has the 40th highest market capitalization, and it contains some potential. Algorand is a competitor to Ethereum and Cardano, and it contains enough volatility to interest cryptocurrency investors, which puts its last place finish very surprising.
