3 cryptocurrencies to avoid trading in April

3 cryptocurrencies to avoid trading in April

Although the cryptocurrency market has plenty of digital assets that have every reason to become a valuable investment for those ‘hodling’ it, sometimes it might be worthwhile to refrain from trading certain cryptocurrencies, at least for the time being.

Based on indicators such as ratings (such as the Weiss Crypto Ratings), historical performance, and recent developments (as well as their absence) in connection with certain crypto assets, Finbold has arrived at the list of three that crypto traders might want to avoid in April.

Kusama (KSM)

A pre-production blockchain version of the Polkadot (DOT) ecosystem using nearly the same codebase and branded its ‘canary network,’ Kusama (KSM) aims to be the experimental and developmental environment for new features that will eventually be deployed on Polkadot.

That said, KSM’s adoption and technology development have both been rated as ‘very weak’ (E-), with hardly any news in the past month, as well as receiving a ‘weak’ score (D+) for the coin’s market performance, which has seen declining trading volume, while its price lost 0.51% on the day, 9.91% in the last week, and 13.4% on its monthly chart, currently standing at $33.14.

Another coin with poor technology and adoption (E-), as well as the market score, is ABBC (ABBC), a blockchain platform that aims to allow secure transactions using integration with facial recognition, as well as offering crypto services like Aladdin Wallet and Aladdin Pro. 

Despite these promises and the launch of a new staking portal on Aladdin Exchange, CoinMarketCap data shows there are currently only 62 holders of the ABBC coin. Moreover, in spite of gaining 2.65% across the week, its price has declined 2.27% in the last 24 hours and 6.22% over the past 30 days, currently trading at $0.07.

Mina Protocol (MINA)

Meanwhile, Mina Protocol (MINA), which is building a privacy-preserving gateway with an aim to become the world’s first zero-knowledge (ZK) blockchain, has received a better market performance grade than the two previous assets due to its fair market momentum.

On the other hand, its technology and adoption grade is only slightly better but still with a ‘very weak’ score of E+, despite the continuous chatter around ZK technology. At press time, MINA was trading at the price of $0.78, recording a daily decrease of 2.71%, in addition to falling 10.47% over the week and 17.63% in the last month.

Having said that, the crypto market often throws in some unexpected twists, such as losing tens of billions to its market capitalization in a matter of hours, so even the above-mentioned cryptocurrencies could show progress in the future, despite it seeming unlikely for the moment.

This is why it is important to have patience, observe the market movements, developments, and sentiment carefully, as well as do due diligence in studying each digital asset before investing any significant amount of money into it.
