The ‘Blue-Chip’ Cryptocurrencies List

Even though there are thousands of cryptos on the market right now, 70% of the market capitalization has actually been taken by Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), which enjoy a high reputation and market recognition.

Other potential crypto projects that maybe the next “Blue-Chip”

Similar to a football match, BTC and ETH are in the first division of crypto. Even if other cryptocurrencies have no big market capitalization like them, it doesn’t mean they have no potential or value. The development of crypto is still at a beginning stage.

In the following, we will introduce two potential cryptocurrencies which are among the top ten most valuable cryptocurrencies in the world.


Solana aims at becoming the fastest blockchain in the world. Popular Blockchain networks like Ethereum require higher operation fees, as more and more transactions are processed across the network.

It leads to D-Apps developers looking for substitutes with a lower operation cost and higher efficiency. Solana’s creators claim that they believe they’ve created a solution which makes them the “fastest growing ecosystem in crypto.”


ADA is the crypto of the Blockchain network Cardano. Currently, Ethereum can process 15 to 30 transactions per second. Meanwhile, the estimated speed is over 250 transactions per second on Cardano. Cardano is working on a Layer 2 (L2) solution called Hydra, that may process 2,000,000 transactions per second.
