low value scamcoin.... that's new to me.. LOL. sort of new.. not really. There's a new ICO every day, and this will last for awhile, maybe a year or two or more, then it will just change names or something.

The ones I've invested in aren't that low value anymore, just about enough to cover close to the average annual salary for the typical middle class above minimum wage worker earns. More or less.

If you're in the Philippines like me, forget mining. Meralco (Manila Electric Company) will suck out all your earnings, or whatever electric company is in whatever province you live in, and of course theft of electricity is not recommended. Learn it and have fun, for educational purposes only. But you won't turn a profit. You can certainly try.

The fix is in folks. It looks like a lot of bitcoin users have discovered this great currency called the dollar and are buying it all up. I heard that this dollar thing has a feature where it is made from paper. Bitcoin doesn't have that. Should we upgrade to get more users?

How much alt coin diversification is needed? 0%?

Ugh so i got a new account, lost my old one years ago.
Been out of the bitcoin world for a few years as I had to sell my stash about 1.5 years ago as I needed the money, knew I would regret it but thats life.
Anyway Im back now and have a small stash of about £300 in various altcoins. My aim is to get back a nice BTC stash.

Just wondering if there is any point in trying to daytrade (not that I ever have, need to learn) with this small amount or am I better to wait until I have thousands in FIAT/coins?

Any feedback would be much welcome

Welcome back. If you want to daytrade crypto, and never have? That is an easier way to lose, than SODL.

Thanks. So are you suggesting to not bother trading crypto and to just save up and buy btc, preferably on the dip?


The best strategy is to engage in a plan to accumulate coins by dollar cost averaging and buying on dips.  Accordingly, if you have  £10  per week that you can invest every week no matter the price, and then maybe  £300 that you hold in reserve and try to time when to buy on dips and figure out how large of a dip that you want to wait for and how much you expect it to dip.  After a while you continue to accumulate and then you can sell very small portions as the price goes up and buy back as the price goes down.  And, maybe in the longer term after you accumulate more, then you can dedicate a certain portion of your stash towards a form of trading that does not involve gambling.  A problem with a large number of traders is that they gamble too much with their stash and then end up losing it through a kind of martingale type system that ends up losing.

Ok thanks great advice, I had to google martingale type system (learn something new everyday) but I get your point. My idea at the moment is save £200 per month, put £100 into BTC, put £25 into a random (with a bit of research) low value scamcoin (ripple/verge/antshares...) and save the £75 per month until it accumulates and buy btc/eth/ltc on the dip.


O.k.. That sounds like a pretty solid plan, and I hope that you are able to stick with it.  After a few years, you should have a pretty decent accumulation.

Since most exchanges do not seem to penalize for smaller orders, I think that it is better to invest your £50 per week rather than £200 per month ... or if you want to compromise, you could do £100 every two weeks.

Yes well I made a slight profit a few weeks ago when I changed some LTC and ETH for Iconomi which rose in price, so I sold some of them and changed them back into ETH and LTC. But yeah thats what Im talking about, exchanging LTC and ETH for some scamcoins as well as some monthly savings, little by little.

And yes well I mined btc years ago in the UK but I am in Manila and so dont really see that as a viable option. Good to know your living here. I recently joined coins.ph as you can top up using php for btc, although ive not tried it yet. Have you used that app?

But I can buy lots of papers with 1 dollar, why should I hold them when there are cheaper papers around?

thank you. now I understand who is buying the alts and why. it is not only new guys. it is guys who want to recover their bitcoin stash they once had. if one´s resources are limited (who´s aren´t?!) your approach makes perfect sense. buy some alts and hope there is a winner.

isn´t it ironic that bitcoin experiences heat from altcoins ("loosing" it´s "dominance") because of people trying to get more... bitcoins?

it is always the same: bitcoins biggest problem arise from its success.  Cheesy

good luck and welcome back.

HAHAHA thanks yes good point there, I mean if I had to choose only one coin to have everything in then of course it would be Bitcoin. I just see altcoins mostly as a pump and dump scheme although im sure there are a few with valid real world application which is owrth having a long term stake in, but for me personally my priority is to get to 0.5btc, then 1,  then 5 etc

Those of you who know MasterLuc, he has been accurate in the past. Here is his prediction. If this is true then no need to panic.


I don't believe a lot of predictions but for some reason I am drawn to his posts and opinions.

Totally true.
People trading altcoins mostly see this as a way to earn BTC
At least that's how I see it. My trades in altcoins are all from a BTC perspective.
Proof is that I measure how much I earn or lose in BTC. I never tell myself "I made a trade and earned 10 SC" or "I lost 3 dollars" but only think in BTC, and I bet I'm not the only one xD

No you're definitely not the only one. Most traders use altcoins to increase their BTC stash! That's what altcoins are mostly good for.
And of course some speculate to get rich quick with these tier3, tier4 coins due to extreme volatility and 20x price breakouts.
I don't know any serious trader or investor who is longterm interested (meaning holding) in altcoins! There may be a few. But I'm sure these guys are an exception and not the standard.

Me too.

I project my cash flows and accumulation in BTC and project ahead to maintain a certain quantity of BTC - and at the same time hoping that the minimum quantity of BTC that I maintain is getting built up with the passage of trades...

Of course if BTC prices shoot straight up to $10k, for example, I would have fewer BTC projected in my holdings as compared with if the price goes up and down and up and down before reaching $10k...

So, it seems that one thing that we can count on is having up and downs along the way to $10k and beyond..

And Alts are indeed dropping insanely fast right now.
