Find out what our Top cryptos to invest in are!

There are over 8,000 digital assets in the world and they all come with a high risk. Coinhouse offers you a selection of over 40 of the most promising crypto-assets as recommended and analysed by our experts. We also list our Top 10 cryptocurrencies for you to look into as part of our efforts to guide you through this complicated space.

Why make a TOP 10 cryptocurrency list?

The cryptocurrency market is an enthralling world that offers huge opportunities for investors who want to make significant gains or set up an income stream as part of a long-term plan. However, the risk is also great and the market can be highly volatile. Like any other investment, you should only invest the amount that you can afford to lose. To protect yourself, you need to get as much information as possible and learn about the fundamentals of cryptos before diving in.

Be sure to talk to a financial adviser before taking a significant decision in this area; your adviser will be able to give you relevant support on the options available to you. You should also only use trustworthy brokers that abide by the French regulations, like the Coinhouse platform which is duly registered by the French Financial Markets Regulator. Our experts are also on hand to lend you support when deciding which cryptocurrencies to choose.

Coinhouse wants to help you as much as possible as you seek financial success in decentralised digital currencies; for this reason, we have listed what we believe are the Top 10 cryptocurrencies to invest in. Our choices are based on various factors, including the performance of the crypto’s price in recent years, market trends, its market cap, the pros and cons of the currency and many others.

Working from these criteria and others, our Analysis & Research team (comprising specialists in the field) have selected ten crypto-assets. Each one has been graded in two distinct aspects: how developed the cryptocurrency’s ecosystem is and what its long-term potential is as an investment. Each cryptocurrency is briefly described with a professional opinion from Coinhouse’s experts to give a better idea of the asset.

Note: stablecoins, like Tether, have been excluded from this Top 10 list. Not because we advise against them but rather because we recommend them as part of a Crypto Savings Account due to how they operate. The top 10 listed below are aimed more at retail investors and businesses looking to know more about the best cryptos out there at this time.

Find out what our TOP 10 cryptocurrencies are!

Our Research & Analysis team have examined in detail all the cryptocurrencies that we make available to you. You can invest in these digital assets but you must keep in mind that the crypto market is highly volatile and can fluctuate sharply both up and down. You also need to remember that a cryptocurrency cannot succeed over the long term if its ecosystem is bereft of meaningful projects that can deliver added value to all stakeholders. For this, we have made the oft-neglected ecosystem development (all functions provided by its developers and the opportunities created) a key criterion.


Bitcoin (BTC)

  • Commissioning: 3 January 2009

Bitcoin is a global network, with no central authority, operating 24 hours a day, transparent and censorship-proof. It can be used as a payment network, a store of value, and even as an unalterable information storage solution. Bitcoin is the first, most valued, most secure and most transacted cryptocurrency in terms of volume..

Only 21 million units of Bitcoin will eventually enter circulation, and 18 million have already been issued on the market. This hard limit has earned Bitcoin its rarity and its nickname of digital gold

  • Our take: This is the most established asset that often forms the basis for building a cryptocurrency portfolio.

Long-term investment potential


Ethereum (ETH)

  • Mise en service : 30 juillet 2015

Ethereum is the second largest project in terms of value and the first in terms of usage. Several thousand tokens, including some very large projects, run on its blockchain. Ethereum allows the creation of autonomous software called “smart-contracts”. They can, among other things, receive and send payments, hold funds, manage voting systems, or store information.

IInvesting in ether therefore means betting on the development of the Ethereum ecosystem, which is behind the creation of numerous projects and applications built on its network.

  • Our opinion: The richness of this ecosystem justifies the value of Ethereum and its current valuation. Given its current momentum, its long-term investment potential may be particularly attractive..

Long-term investment potential


Uniswap (UNI)

  • Commissioning : 2 november 2018.

Uniswap is a service that allows its users to exchange crypto assets for other crypto assets. Unlike a traditional exchange site, Uniswap has no servers, wallets, and operates solely through a restricted website that connects to the Ethereum blockchain to perform all transactions.

On Uniswap, the liquidity for the transactions is provided by external investors, who thus receive an income for providing this service.

  • Our opinion : A secure and decentralised platform allowing exchanges between thousands of assets, and an interesting remuneration model

Ecosystem development

Long-term investment potential


Aave (AAVE)

  • Mise en service : 2017

Aave is a site where it is possible to make deposits and loans, as in a traditional financial system, with interest rates. The project is gradually establishing itself as a leading and innovative platform in the Ethereum ecosystem.
In 2021, Aave is already a market leader, with funds under management exceeding $10 billion and innovative products such as “flash loans”, very short-term loans.

  • Our opinion :the richness of this ecosystem justifies Ethereum’s value and current valuation. Given its current momentum, its long-term investment potential may be particularly attractive

Long-term investment potential


Polkadot (DOT)

  • Commissioning : 26 may 2020

Polkadot aims to create a ”metablockchain”, which can interface with several existing blockchains simultaneously. The idea is to bring liquidity and facilitate access to new projects to the entire cryptoasset ecosystem.
There are several competitors in this market, but Polkadot is currently the most advanced.

  • Our opinion : A secure and decentralised platform allowing exchanges between thousands of assets, and an interesting remuneration model

Ecosystem development

Long-term investment potential


Chainlink (LINK)

  • Commissioning: 19 September 2017.

Chainlink is a decentralised oracle system. Its main use is to secure data brought to decentralised applications. This can be any type of data, such as prices of other assets to Ethereum applications that require it.

Chainlink is currently the leading oracle system.

  • Our opnion An essential project for the Ethereum ecosystem, but the value of the token is not necessarily representative of its interest.

Ecosystem development

Long-term investment potential


MakerDAO (Maker)

  • Commissioning: 18 December 2017.

MakerDAO is an accessible, untrusted credit system. Borrowers deposit their ethers as collateral to obtain a token called the Dai (DAI), which is a stablecoin backed by the dollar and widely used in other decentralised finance projects.

The MKR token allows the management of the global functioning of the platform, so there is an interest in holding it that is not only speculative.

  • Our opinion: This project represents the heart of decentralised finance.

Ecosystem development

Long-term investment potential


Tezos (XTZ)

  • Mise en service : 20 juin 2018.

Tezos is a project that aims to compete with Ethereum with a protocol that is more reliable, more secure, and less energy consuming. A number of companies, particularly in France, are turning to this protocol for these reasons, to the detriment of Ethereum. Despite this, its ecosystem remains very small compared to its competitor.
However, some projects based on the Tezos blockchain are very interesting, such as EURL: the euro-backed stablecoin offered on the Coinhouse platform.

  • Our opinion:Tezos has strong technological qualities, but is a competitor to Ethereum, which will be difficult to dethrone.

Ecosystem development

Long-term investment potential


Cosmos (ATOM)

  • Commissioning: 13 March 2018.

The Cosmos project (ATOM) proposes the establishment of an ecosystem of independent blockchains to lead to the concept of the “Internet of blockchains”. Its managers are very ambitious and want to create total interoperability between the various blockchains.

The ATOM token is the native cryptocurrency that powers the Cosmos ecosystem and its development is funded by a private entity..

  • Our opinion: Very ambitious project, but has not yet put anything into production

Ecosystem development

Long-term investment potential


Avalanche (AVAX)

  • Commissioning: 21 September 2020

Avalanche is a project that aims to build the internet of finance using smart contracts, thus competing directly with Ethereum. Avalanche relies on a relatively complex infrastructure to offer an extremely flexible protocol. It allows the development of decentralised applications (Dapps) and even new cryptocurrencies.
However, some projects based on the Tezos blockchain are very interesting, such as EURL: the euro-backed stablecoin offered on the Coinhouse platform/span>

  • Our opinion: AOur opinion : Very interesting project, with many partnerships, but still in the development phase

Most promising cryptocurrencies of 2022

Coinhouse’s experts have also prepared a list of 14 of the most promising cryptocurrencies for 2022. This list identifies the most interesting cryptos of the moment, whether due to recent price action (and where we see it in the future) or recent developments within their ecosystem.

It is of course impossible to know what the most profitable cryptocurrency for the year will be, and even more impossible to guarantee enormous returns if you do invest. Such promises are the remit of unscrupulous people, it’s not for us. Especially at a time when circumstances have been highly uncertain for the last several months: pandemic, invasions, supply chain bottlenecks, economic turmoil, rising interest rates, increased governmental scrutiny, etc.

However, this does not preclude drawing up a list of decentralised currencies likely to create added value over the coming months thanks to their specific features and the socio-economic utility of the projects built onto their blockchains. Without further ado, find out what the 14 most interesting cryptos at the moment are!
