Cryptocurrency trader Poppe, who shared his analysis with his subscribers on his channel "Crypto Michaël" on Youtube, gave the following information to his subscribers in his content titled "Best Altcoins for December 2021". "I'm not going to give specific altcoins today in this monthly 'best altcoins of the month' – update, but I'll explain how you can derive which altcoins are best to buy."

In the video shared by Michaël van de Poppe, first on the list is Ethereum (ETH), a smart contract platform for building decentralized applications (dApps). It developed its own programming language for smart contract robustness. At the time of writing, ETH is trading at $4,345 with a 24-hour trading volume of $19.9 billion.

The second is Cardano (ADA), a proof-of-stake blockchain platform that enables visionaries and innovators to bring positive global change. At the time of writing, ADA is trading at $1.39 with a 24-hour trading volume of $1.7 billion.

Third, Aave, a decentralized lending platform that offers higher interest rates than centralized lending, with better security and anonymity. Aave is called one of the leading loan protocols today. It offers borrowers a higher collateral to the loan smart contract than the amount they borrowed.

In addition, Aave offers a 10 percent annual return on certain stablecoin loans that do not require a customer recognition (KYC) procedure, a product truly unheard of in traditional finance.

Fourth, Chainlink (LINK). This cryptocurrency brings outside data to smart contracts. With this network, Ethereum smart contracts can now work on other asset prices, global events, and make calls to other APIs. Chainlink makes smart contracts really smart. It also includes real-world data.
