We all know the "all eggs in one basket" story, but there are a lot more things to consider. There are moments in which you should be "brave" and listen to your guts. Smiley I hardly like any concept of a coin/token/whatever, because most of them lack the most important thing - usage (i.e. people). BAT is on a whole different level (though I hate the way they raised funds). Just imagine how many of you are using... browsers? And at the time of my first reply here the price was 4050 satoshi, now BAT is at 4370. I gave my "investment advise", because I'm following the market very closely and BAT currently is a 99.99% sure "investment". My best guess is that you can make 20-50% profit over the next few days (it already gained ~10% in 2 hours), not to mention what might happen in a few months/years.


You are naive as fuck. Prepare to lose money on a gimmick that no one will use.

I thought you actually knew something, clearly I was wrong.

You can't be farther from the truth. I started trading again in mid May after a long (probably close to 2 years) break. Sold part of one of my alts for 0.57 BTC (about $1000 at the time) and at the moment I'm sitting on about ~$7,000 worth of BAT (~$4,000, even at these prices), Aragon and SIA. Mind telling me how I can lose?

You see, I have a strategy when it comes to trading:

1. I'm always buying coins/tokens, which I "believe in"!
2. If I believe the given coin/token will worth a lot more in future, then I'm starting to accumulate. I'm putting (say) a 10-20% difference as a target (example: bought at 1000 satoshi and it reaches 1100-1200), then I'm starting to sell. Usually I go with 1/4 or 1/3 of my holdings. If I hold 1000 coins, I'm selling 250 at 1100 satoshi. Then if the price reaches 1300 - I'm selling another 250. If the price goes back from 1300 to (say) 1150, then I'm buying back with ALL the BTC I earned from the previous trade (at 1300). If there is some sudden dump to (say) 900 satoshi, I'm buying with the BTC I made from both these trades (at 1100 and 1300).

This way I can follow the waves relatively "safely" and my chances of losing aren't that big.

Jumping on me this way won't do you any good, because I may be everything, but when it comes to digital currencies (coins, scams, tradings (if you wish).. everything except the tech behind a certain coin (that's because I'd like to think as the average Joe and don't give a flying f*ck about the gimmicks and don't waste my time to research them)), then you are talking to a person from which you may learn a lot.

I've been here for long enough and I've seen more than you can imagine, so you may call me naive, or you may call out mining1 and Mindlesscache to help you "bashing" me with my haircut or profile picture, but this won't change the fact that THIS IS SPARTA!

P.S. BAT is now trading at 4500. More money "lost".

Cloud Mining is a nono, its risky

I would rather go POS if i wanted to do cloud mining which i pay for hashrate

Trading is really good if you have time to read through forums, analyse the trend

How does this even make sense?

So first - BAT was an ICO that raised 30 million in the first hour.  I tend to agree it's one of the only legit ICOs.  BUT

1.)  It's valued at 110 million which means original ICO purchases are already 4X in the green.

2.)  THIS is it's price chart.

3.)  It has gone down 10% today (maybe you are seeing upside down or something?)

Best option for me is Crypto Trading but for now at least wait for the 1st August and let the bloodbath finish which is going on from last few weeks and after the segwit then you can go on with crypto trading you can earn good amount of profit from trading but you need to learn it first properly if you play with your luck than more chances are of loss better to learn first than do good in trading and one more advice from me is that only trade with good coins which have good future and good development team and also a road map which will show how these coins will grow and only invest in those coins. Don't invest in Crap Coins.

Stick with your own mining setul and stay far away from cloud mining.  That shouldn't even be an option.

My own advice would be to invest in bitcoin and not these scammy icos, with which you're apt to lose money.  Frankly the crypto market is a bit overheated right now and it might be best to wait to invest that kind of money.

You can try to play on stock exchanges, but the Crypto currency is monopolized and regulated by the manipulator market, that there is 80% of what you lose your savings.
It is better to try to enter the waves as cheap as possible in bitkoyn and postpone it for a while, it will necessarily soar several times.

I think it's currently about 2.5 times over the ICO price, but this doesn't mean anything.

EDIT: And I think they raised $36 Million... in 20-30 seconds...

Some combination of bitcoin, litecoin, monero and ethereum. They are all legit and have their place in the cosmos. They all also have serious developer teams and strong communities.

Am I? That's the main problem with people nowadays - you "can't easily have them". If now some guy like John Atanasoff comes to you with a basketball court sized machine and tells you: "This is a Time machine", you won't believe him, until it is shaped as a laptop, or an IPhone with a shiny bitten apple on the back.  I asked one simple question:

Just imagine how many of you are using... browsers?

Some may say IE is shitty, others Chrome, Mozilla, Tor etc... you'll hear millions of opinions, but guess what? It really doesn't matter what they say, because all of them have its huge market niche. How about the ads market?

We Bulgarians like to say that there's no need to invent the hot water. All you need is to work for you (whatever you're trying to start). And if you don't see the potential here, well... nothing I can do about it.

P.S. I can agree with these 99.9% I mentioned, but that's probably because I hardly see BAT to fail any further. Their main problem is... Ethereum. I am sure that they will reach a lot of their goals, so yes, it may not work as they are planning, but they have a potential... a big one. And isn't all because of this after all? Potential? I'm sorry that this is not the ICO, which made a 15000% ROI in 2 weeks, but the way I see it is a bit different.

Cheers!

split your fund with several kind of coins and don't ever putting your money only for one basket to avoid huge loss if you're had wrong step however i suggest 50% for bitcoin and 50% for altcoins or if you have good knowledge for trading and had good results during your trading activities maybe you can spend 50% from total of your funds for trading capital

i would like take your advise and put it them all.

Thank you for all. I decided to do day trading. I already have some rigs. And i think the price of a coin determines the profit whether you POS POW or cloud mining. So pricing is very dynamic in the market to make some profits.

If you don't want to do all the work on finding trading opportunities or mining why not invest in a fund that does the work for you? For example iconomi or taas or there is DDF with an ICO coming up on Monday.

My best guess is that you can make 20-50% profit over the next few days (it already gained ~10% in 2 hours), not to mention what might happen in a few months/years.

I'll tell you what I did with 7000€ Approx. 3 BTC worse of cryptos (I started knowing/investing in BTC and others in october 2016 with 700€. I had x10 my stack in june 14th 2017 and I could have done better)  Cool

As you said. Not all your eggs in the same basket. I think this too and I have already other baskets than cryptos.
So I'll keep everything in that basket and try to make it grow. With so many stuff it is hard, and I sure had a lot of luck within my good choices.
I am realistic.
But at the same time you think doing the same 9 month would result in 70000€. You think about that king of stuff when you did it once...  Grin

But after a long reflexion I went for the secure long term investment on june 14th.

I took 2.25 BTC and invested it into 1 Asic L3+ (September Batch) 1 Asic S9 (August Batch) and 2335 Giga Watt Tokens.
Giga Watt in Seattle USA will be hosting my miners at an incredibly low electricity rate.
I wanted to do it but it is kind of hard here in France and you need time, knowledge, and place etc... and I never wanted to invest in cloud mining type genesis or other scams and I never did.

I have now only 0,75 BTC worse of cryptos to manage and I am trying to do the same as I did the first time. x10 this stack. But from the end of the summer I'll be on top of that receiving some BTC and then in september some LTC everyday.

Time will tell if I did a good choice. I am happy with it. I am a true beginner in this world and it is only worse 700€.  Tongue

Hope this will help you make your investment choices.

I would suggest you to wait on investing until post Bitcoin Fork.

I'm thinking PlexCoin for my first investment. They aim to make crypto's available very easily. They plan to make a Visa Card called PlexCoin Visa that is directly connected to your PlexWallet and can be used in stores and ATM's.

MyBit also sounds good, they want to tokenize revenue streams. Investors can send money to anyone for anything and after that they get revenue from that investment.
