Disclosure: No project featured below has paid me anything to write about them, I do however, put my money where my mouth is and as such currently hold most of the tokens/coins featured in this article. This is not investment or financial advice. Please always do your own independent research (DYOR). Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, so only invest what you can afford to loose.
With the recent market correction causing drops in every single cryptocurrency, opportunities have arisen to pickup undervalued coins and tokens of solid projects at bargain prices. After much research, below are some of my favorite undervalued cryptocurrencies for February 2018.
IMPORTANT: This list and the market caps were written as at February 7th 2018. I will write and publish my next undervalued crypto article in July 2018. Sign up for Dapp.tech browser push notifications and our email list to be notified the moment it’s published.
Undervalued Small Caps ($20m USD or less)
Sumokoin (SUMO) ~$8m cap
UPDATE JUNE 2018 - ATTENTION : Sumokoin has hardforked and split into two chains: Sumokoin & Ryo after a controversial dev team split. After extensive independent research, I've concluded that RYO is the new decentralized community driven Sumokoin, and almost all of the old Sumokoin community are now dropping support for Sumokoin and getting behind and supporting RYO instead. If you're interested please read about what happened in the recent Sumokoin RYO Fork. Holders of Sumokoin private keys will now have the ability to claim the same amount on both chains, so you'll get both coins. Read this Sumokoin / Ryo Currency Update for further details and instructions on how Sumokoin holders can claim their free Ryo coins.
Sumokoin is a fork from Monero (XMR) with a few key improvements and an even higher level of privacy in mind, setting Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT) with minimum ringsize (mixin) of 12 to conceal sources/amounts transferred, providing it the highest resistance to blockchain analysis. The POW mining “camel distribution” emission schedule means block rewards grow until 2021 before declining every year til 2033, this allows a fairer and more decentralized distribution of mining rewards for new miners that enter the industry over the next few years of mainstream cryptocurrency adoption. Sumokoin is untraceable and I consider it the most private privacy coin in the world right now. The Sumokoin dev team have achieved so much in such a short time; they’ve released multiple original GUI wallets that have been forked by many projects, and an easy-to-use GUI SUMO miner, which has also been forked by other dev teams.
Aigang (AIX) ~ $10m cap
Aigang is a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organisation) Insurance Protocol.

MyBit (MYB) ~$19m cap
MyBit is a peer-to-peer investing dApp which looks set to unlock billions of dollars in IoT revenue.

Examples of initially planned IoT revenue making devices are: Solar Installations, Bitcoin ATMs, Drones, Driverless Cars and Decentralized Cryptocurrency mining. MyBit’s platform will also offer the game changing liquidity to these crowdfunded micro-stakes, so we could very well soon see the flood gates open for IoT, Crowdvesting and Solar. The team seem focused on building a great platform rather than focusing on hype. MyBit are looking to also introduce crowd-funded property investing utilizing SlockIt automated door locks to minimize the costs of property management. The Alpha is scheduled for release Q2 2018, it’s imminent, in the meantime if you’re interested to learn more about MyBit I’d suggest you read their whitepaper (v3.0).
