How to Recession-Proof Your Portfolio: Oryen Network, Cardano And Fantom

Although it has been challenging for many to make money in the cryptocurrency market, there are still opportunities available for those who invest wisely.

The Oryen project, Cardano, and Fantom have all been identified as good investments with the potential to improve your portfolio.

Fantom (FTM)

Fantom created its decentralized platform for smart contracts with a focus on dApps and digital currencies as an alternative to Ethereum. The project has succeeded in offering a more scalable and secure solution that is still decentralized.

Oryen (ORY)

Oryen users see a guaranteed return on their investment of 90% each year, which puts ORY high up on the list of best cryptocurrency investments for the year.

The ORY token is ideal for investors who want to buy and hold because the Autostaking Technic of the project (OAT) automatically stakes and auto-compunds rewards directly from wallets. Consequently, Oryen’s Buy-Hold-Earn model provides great returns for all types of investors.

Oryen is an up-and-coming decentralized finance project that has been gain popularity among YouTube and Reddit users who are interested in cryptocurrencies.

The ORY token is being sold in its 7th presale round at a discounted price of $0.21. Once the project launches, however, the token’s price will return to its original value of $0.35 according to this presale schedule:

Presale Phase   Date   Price Increase   ORY Price   Purchase Bonus

Presale 7   09 Dec — 16 Dec   320%   $0.21   5%

Presale 8   16 Dec — 23 Dec   400%   $0.25   5%

Presale 9   23 Dec — 27 Dec   500%   $0.3   0%


Cardano (ADA)

investors have increasingly been attracted to the ADA cryptocurrency that is native to Cardano’s decentralized blockchain. Charles Hoskinson, one of Ethereum’s co-founders, open-sourced the project in 2017. Today, Cardano stands as one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency ecosystems.


Adding Oryen, Cardano, and Fantom to your investment portfolio is a solid choice for anyone looking to make some quick gains.
