Popular cryptocurrency trader and strategist Austin Arnold has published his top 10 assets that could go mainstream next year. 

According to the latest edition of the Altcoin Daily YouTube series, Arnold highlighted bitcoin as the number one crypto-asset to take off in the coming year. He pointed to increased institutional demand for BTC, including MicroStrategy’s eye-raising purchase of $50 million bitcoin at the near all-time high of $19,427.

He said: 

This is the first cycle where smart money and corporate treasuries become the cheerleaders, become the educators for Bitcoin.

Arnold, who has more than 287,000 subscribers, called cardano second on his list of top performers in 2021. He noted cardano’s upcoming fork and token locking feature as positive developments for the altcoin. 

The popular trader featured Trustswap in third place, saying the platform intends to become number one in the marketplace of non-fungible tokens by returning community fees.

He also predicted XRP to be a strong performer in the coming year, thanks in part to the efforts of Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse. 

He said: 

[Brad] Garlinghouse actually donated to the Biden for president campaign earlier this year… And also last year, he donated to the Kamala Harris for the People campaign when she was a presidential candidate.”

In addition, Arnold added Tezos, VeChain, Ethereum, Injective Protocol, Binance Coin and Uniswap to his top assets for investors to follow in 2021.
