Crypto trader Aaron Arnold is naming his top altcoin picks for the month of November.
In a new YouTube video, the Altcoin Daily host says he anticipates Polygon (MATIC) to surge as companies like Twitter work on projects that require Ethereum layer-2 scaling solutions.
“Polygon is breaking out, targeting new record highs. MATIC looks ready to set new all-time highs, and this matches what we see going on on-chain.
Polygon just crossed one billion transactions that have all been processed on the Polygon proof-of-stake chain. An amazing milestone, an amazing achievement.
Ethereum layer-2 scaling solutions could not have come at a better time. There’s demand for this, especially with all the adoption that we see.”
The trader is also optimistic about the smart contract platform Avalanche (AVAX) after one of the original rebasing tokens, Ampleforth (AMPL), launched on the network.
“Avalanche is providing a lot of incentives for different DeFi [decentralized finance] protocols to come on the Avalanche blockchain and it’s working.”
He points to Avalanche’s growing numbers in terms of addresses and transactions, adding that the network’s daily active addresses just hit a new high of nearly 70,000, representing a weekly increase of over 100%.
Arnold says that he is also bullish on the decentralized oracle network Chainlink (LINK) and decentralized peer-to-peer file storage protocol Filecoin (FIL).
“I’m adding them just because they are interoperating with a lot of the leaders in this space. I think the future is multi-chain, the future is interoperable.”
Arnold says that the decentralized cross-chain liquidity protocol THORchain (RUNE), which recently broke volume and liquidity all-time highs, is also on his list.
He says the platform is now being viewed as a favored venue for KYC-less (know your customer) and borderless trading of Bitcoin (BTC) for Ethereum (ETH) and ERC-20 tokens. Arnold cites a forecast that the network will have more real Bitcoin than Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) on the Uniswap exchange by the end of next January.
“THORchain is doing some impressive metrics.”
