Analyst Austin Arnold on his YouTube channel (945 thousand subscribers) named five altcoins, which, in his opinion, will rise in price in September.
Arnold considers Ethereum (ETH), Cosmos (ATOM), Cardano (ADA), Tezos (XTZ) and VeChain (VET) to be the most promising tokens for the next month. Writes about this RBC Crypto.
On August 24, six organizations at once donated to the Ethereum Foundation $ 250 thousand each for the development and implementation of the Ethereum 2.0 update. According to the analyst, this shows that the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem is awaiting an altcoin update and is ready to donate funds for this.
Another event supported by Ethereum, Arnold called the purchase by the Visa payment company of an NFT token from the CryptoPunks collection for $ 150,000 (payment was made in ETH).
Ethereum (ETH) has gained 35% since the beginning of August. On August 27, the altcoin is trading at $ 3.1 thousand, and its capitalization is $ 366 billion, according to CoinGecko.
On August 23, the Cosmos developers announced that in the near future it will be possible to use bitcoins in the Cosmos ecosystem using the interBTC interchain. The analyst claims that this will significantly increase the liquidity of the Cosmos ecosystem.
Since the beginning of the month, the Cosmos cryptocurrency has risen in price by 83%. The price of the digital coin reached $ 23.8. On August 27, the cost of Cosmos is $ 18.5, capitalization is $ 5.1 billion.

According to Arnold, the adoption and popularity of Cardano will grow even more after the asset has received permission from the Japanese regulator and can be traded on Japanese exchanges. The analyst also noted the low fees on the Cardano network compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum.
In August, the price of the Cardano cryptocurrency (ADA) rose 132%. The market valuation of the asset increased to $ 83 billion. The digital coin took the third place in the list of the largest cryptocurrencies in terms of capitalization. Cardano is trading at $ 2.59 on August 27.

The second place in this indicator is the city of Moscow, the third is the Nizhny Novgorod region. Queries “cardano forecast” and “cardano rate” are also popular.
Tim Harrison, Marketing and Communications Director of IOHK (the issuer of Cardano), announced the release of the Alonzo hard fork on September 12th. After that, the altcoin network will receive support for smart contracts and the ability to create decentralized applications (DeFi).
