As we're entering the month of May, we are sharing with you our insights on the best cryptocurrencies to speculate on in May 2018.  

We used Finstead screener to generate the list of top altcoins by 1-month return, and we sorted them by market cap.  We also included a 3-month return in our table, and then selected those cryptocurrencies that have both long-term and short-term momentum.  

Among the top 10 cryptos, here are the 3 that caught our attention.   

1.  OmiseGo (OMG.X) is one of the most prominet Chinese blockchain projects.  It is a project backed by a team of blockchain experts including Ethereum chief, Vitalik Buterin and is aiming to solve some major financial challenges.  

Why invest in OmiseGo?  Their team is unstoppable.  In Q1 alone, they had a number of successful releases, and the progress they made since launch has been amazing. 

2.  EOS (EOS.X)--in our article on EOS' bull run, we noted that one of the reasons speculators are betting on it is Dan Larimer, who is leading EOS development efforts.  

Why invest in it?  The crypto community believes that EOS can be a real competitor to Ethereum, and can still go a long way in terms of growing the market cap.  EOS also demonstrated a ton of progress in Q1.  

3.  Finally, investors are excited about Verge (XVG.X) because of its commercial prospects.  Verge has a deal with TokenPay, which signed a deal with a major German bank. Thanks to this deal, consumers are going to encounter XVG debit cards--and that's making altcoin speculators really excited about Verge.
