Note that minimum ETH is $3.49 USD with todays rate.

Here are some crypto coins worth testing with

50 Basic Attention Token = 10.345964 US Dollar (USD)

0.3 Ethereum Classic = 1.321691 US Dollar (USD)

0.03 Dash = 2.059079 US Dollar (USD)

3 EOS = 8.783713 US Dollar (USD)

0.1 Litecoin = 5.285820 US Dollar (USD)

0.1 Monero = 5.329867 US Dollar (USD)

30 Stellar Lumens = 1.862466 US Dollar (USD)

10 ChainLink = 22.990130 US Dollar (USD)

2.0E-6 Bitcoin Cash = 0.000433 US Dollar (USD)

0.03 Zcash = 1.081325 US Dollar (USD)

30 XRP = 8.513213 US Dollar (USD)

Based on the above coin conversion to USD, it seems the only ones worth live trading to test new bot strategies with are Ethereum Classic, Bitcoin Cash, ZCash (when it performs), Stellar, and maybe Dash.

Note that I used to convert coins to United States Dollar.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
