I think there are two good rules of thumb to go for:

1- Only what you can afford to loose when trading in high riske, high volatility assets.
2- About 10% of you investments should be on high risk high volatility aasets.

Then after you decide the amount you should diversify. From my experience sometimes i go all in some asset or coin and if it comes down you are more pressure to sell in a loss if you want to keep trading. so i would diversify for sure so if im bagholding something i just keep it and keep trading with the rest so i dont trade ina  loss to many times

How much in percentage of your total bitcoin do you allot or invest to trade? Is it like 50% hold and 50% invest in tradings or how do you go about it?
Is it wise to invest all your 100% bitcoin in trading if you feel it is the right opportunity?
I only invest 2% of my whole BTC BR at first and then if the price drops 50% ( of what I bought ) then I will buy the same amount of coins again and sell when I get atleast 25% profit on whole.
For ex:
Buy 1000 units at 100 sats
Buy 1000 units if price drops to 50 sats
Average is 75 now and I will sell all 2000 units when the price reaches 85 .

I'm doing the same thing too. I always don't go all in so that if the coin I just bought will dump I still have more btc to buy again. I think averaging is the best and safest strategy in trading.

The game of trading and gambling is the same but when you have absolutely no proper / authenticate method to earn from the gambling, the other one i.e - trading gives more opportunities to earn profits through scientific research and proper entry/exit points. I used to spend my funds on gambling when I was new to cryptocurrencies but then I somehow reduced it to 0 and today I either spend 20% / 30% in trading and rest in investing or allocate the whole portion to investing.

Well I always I would say about 30% investment in trading and 70 percent to hold,
Since I am getting some alt coin in doing some campaigns like signature and social media campaigns.

i think i use only 40%-45% from the total of bitcoin i have because for me its better to use small percentage to trading altcoin-bitcoin so i still have most bitcoin in my account. beside that, if the bitcoin price is getting increase, i can sell it to make profit in fiat amount so i can buy bitcoin again if the price is getting down like yesterday. i think its not wise to invest all of our bitcoin to trading because we still need bitcoin in our account for another urgent that we could have in future. or we can buy back if the coins is suddenly gets down too deep.

Well you should only risk as much you can afford to lose really. Higher capital always comes with higher profits but you can lose a bigger chunk as well. If you feel comfortable and are able to afford the loss, go all in. If not don't.

I do about 50/50 trading and holding. Some of the holdings I lend to make a little extra. It just depends on your strategy and whether you are looking for long term or short term profits.

Even you feel the right opportunity dont really let your emotions do push you to go 100% and its always self to save some incase and unexpected things to happen since we do all know that all things doesnt have an assurance that it would go as we planned. Only spend on the amount you can afford to lose and making partitions or diversification is always advisable no matter how potential does a coin have.

I think 50% for trading investment and 50% to hold a good idea,
even though we have a good chance in trading but I think it is not right if all the assets we have entered into trading investment, because to anticipate if trading activity loss.
