2019 is near to the end.
2018 and 2019 were not bright years for many cryptocurrency investors.
What I expect for 2020 ?
1- Cryptocurrency projects with financial problems.
Many cryptocurrency projects have already financial problems. They are struggling for pay team salary or budgets for marketings.
Some projects pay team salaries with own token which makes negative impact on token price. Some projects will exhaust in 2020 and not have more token to pay salary of team. I expect that many projects will collapse in 2020 and become total loss for its investors / hodlers.
2- Closing of Exchanges
in 2016 & 2017, it was good business as open a cryptocurrency exchange and create income from trading free and listing fee.
Recently near 500 exchanges now but market volume is not enough to support so many exchanges. Tightening regulations and forcing close doors to U.S investors will caused as many exchanges will shut down in 2020
3 - Utility tokens.
some projects have brilliant ideas about utility of tokens. possibly few of them will create demand from non-crypto sphere to use their utility token in its app. On the other hand, bulk of utility token projects will not exist anymore in 2020. I expect that their GitHub will be same ghost town without any development or marketing.
4- Rise of security tokens.
Many crypto investors suffered by misleaded projects or invest to scam projects. Curretly very limited cash flow to markets. All new cash flow to market will go to major coins such as BTC and will go to security tokens because investors will not willing to invest more to utility tokens.
5- Massive using of blockchain
Some countries will adopt blockchain massive while some others stubbornly resist. I expect that we will see crypto friendly countries lists in 2020.
6- Advanced DEX exchanges integration to messaging / social media apps.
Recently have many DEX ( decentralized exchanges ) but they are mostly not user friendly , slow and some limitations for tradings.
WeChat or Line or some other messaging apps already have features for send fiat money and mobile pay.
I expect that we will see in 2020 that some messaging / social media apps will integrate advanced and more user friendly DEX exchanges in to their apps for crypto trading. it will eliminate hack risk of conventional crypto exchanges and i will help mass adoption to crypto.
