With the fourth quarter of 2023 underway, crypto investors are looking ahead to see which digital assets have the potential to outperform the market in the coming months.


Major altcoins like XRP and Solana look poised for gains based on their technicals, while lesser-known tokens like Loom Network could also be set for a fruitful end to the year.

There are even some hot new altcoin ICOs taking place boasting high price potential – with Bitcoin Minetrix grabbing significant attention in this regard.

Ripple’s legal troubles continue to limit XRP’s price potential

First up is XRP, which has experienced a wild ride in 2023 thanks to Ripple Labs’ ongoing legal battle with the SEC.

Although Ripple Labs has scored several victories over the SEC in court, they have yet to translate to the bullish momentum that XRP holders had hoped for.

Currently, XRP is trading around the $0.489 level, having fallen below the vital $0.50 zone last week.


Many analysts now see XRP testing support around the $0.470 level before any sustained upside move can occur.

However, if investor sentiment begins to improve towards the end of 2023, then there’s a chance that XRP could spike back to August’s high of $0.558.

XRP trading volume has sunk 25% in the past day, so the decreased trading activity suggests that investor interest may be waning

Regardless, while inherently unpredictable, XRP remains a top altcoin to watch through the end of the year.

Solana builds momentum into Q4 through new partnerships

Next up is Solana, currently ranked the world's seventh-largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $9.9 billion.

Like XRP, Solana has experienced a volatile year so far, with the SOL price soaring over 151% throughout June and July before retracing 46% in the following months.

SOL is valued at $23.93 at the time of writing – roughly the same as in mid-January.


Price is creating higher highs and lower highs on the daily chart, indicating that an uptrend could be on the cards.

Many analysts see upside for Solana in Q4 as the network continues to onboard new projects and form global partnerships, like the one with the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).

Key support sits around $21.00, with the most prominent resistance zone at $25.00.

If SOL’s current bullish momentum persists, the token could retest resistance in the coming weeks and potentially break above for the first time since July.

Loom Network’s fundamentals crumble along with its price

Loom Network’s native token, LOOM, has seen a rough couple of days, with its price falling 65% since Sunday.

This price drop has surprised many investors, as the broader crypto market has been rebounding from recent lows.

LOOM saw an incredible rally over the past few weeks, gaining over 930% between September and its peak.


However, this surge lacked a foundation in strong fundamentals, with on-chain data showing that developer activity on the Loom Network has slowed over the past few years.

With many LOOM holders now opting to sell their tokens and take profits, the sudden departure of investors has furthered the token's sharp decline.

As interest in LOOM dwindles, the token's prospects for Q4 look increasingly bleak, with the nearest support zone around $0.1125 – a further 35% drop from today's price.

Bitcoin Minetrix presale draws attention for passive income potential & raises $1.7m

Lastly, Bitcoin Minetrix (BTCMTX) is an emerging token that has been attracting attention in recent weeks.

Bitcoin Minetrix introduces a novel “Stake-to-Mine” model that provides passive income opportunities for everyday investors.

Using this model, BTCMTX token holders can stake their tokens to earn "mining credits," which are then exchanged for cloud mining power to mine BTC.


This eliminates the need for expensive computing equipment, opening up the mining process to everyone.

BTCMTX tokens also provide staking rewards of 346% per year, with over 120.4 million tokens staked already.

These factors have helped create an early buzz around Bitcoin Minetrix’s limited-time presale, which has now raised $1.7 million in less than one month.

Currently, BTCMTX tokens are on offer for $0.011, although since the presale will take a tiered approach, this price point will only be available for 11 more days.


Analysts are bullish on BTCMTX’s outlook once it debuts on major exchanges later this year.

Joe Parys, who boasts a YouTube audience of over 383,000 people, even described it as having “big potential” in Q4.

Fellow YouTube analyst Michael Wrubel also commended Bitcoin Minetrix, highlighting its potential for passive income as a key reason to keep an eye on the project.

With presale momentum accelerating, many early backers believe now is the ideal time to buy BTCMTX tokens at the lowest price possible.
