In the context of crypto, “gems” generally refers to “gems projects” or “gem coins”, which are cryptocurrencies that have the potential for significant growth in value, or have unique features that make them stand out in the crowded crypto market.

These projects or coins are often considered “hidden gems” or “undervalued” and may be relatively unknown to the wider crypto community. They can also be smaller, newer projects that are still in development but have promising technology or potential use cases.

Crypto gems use to show a low market capitalization and trade volume at first, but with dedicated development teams and enthusiastic user communities. They are seen to have the ability to disrupt established markets and industries, which might result in a huge price increase over time.
