21 Hot Cryptocurrency Apps for 2019 – Hacker Noon

Crypto-currencies are virtual, private currencies that allow their holders to purchase certain types of goods or services without having a bank account.

The first crypto-currencies were created as soon as the advent of the Internet but their use only developed with the bitcoin, designed by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. Bitcoin records every minute nearly 80 transactions in the world. Nevertheless, this figure remains far from the number of transactions made with Visa and Mastercard payment cards, of the order of 100,000 transactions per minute each.

The crypto-active ecosystem is increasingly attracting public scrutiny as to how their use can be diverted. Anonymity guaranteed by the absence of an account would encourage practices related to money laundering or other criminal activities such as the financing of terrorism. However, this surveillance comes up against the desire to encourage technological innovation, of which crypto-currencies have been one of the representatives in recent years.

In this article i am going to list some Crypto-Currency Apps and Websites which I personally like… Let’s Begin.

Hot Apps for Crypto-Investor

When you take your first steps in the world of cryptocurrency, it can be practical to get some smartphone applications that allow effective and permanent management of your funds.

Indeed, you do not always have the means to be on the computer all day, and this is the strong point of applications on mobile phones: they allow you to manage everything remotely, via your smartphone, anywhere anytime!

Today, I will advise you some applications, classified by features, so that you can choose the one that will be most useful depending on what you want to do. These apps are all available on Android and iOS.

They allow you to manage your crypto-currencies and store them in wallets. The most famous are:

Jaxx

With this application, you own your wallet with your own private keys, and this wallet is compatible with several different crypto-currencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum. Thus, you are totally free of your operations and the management of your funds. In terms of security, Jaxx has some advantages, thanks to its phrase recovery system (12 words!) To restore your wallet. However, you are the only real guarantor of the security of your funds (as always with cryptos), and it is up to you to pay a lot of attention.

With Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet, you can send and receive Bitcoins using your mobile phone. The unparalleled “cold storage” feature allows you to secure 100% of your funds until you are ready to spend them.

It is also a way to simply obtain, with the help of your credit card, some cryptocurrencies.

Most of them allow you to track the status of your portfolio in real time.

As it is a tracker and as this name suggests, this app tracks investment prices and sets price alerts.
