Low marketcap means the potential for bigger percentage gains, but also more risk. Don't invest in a coin just because it is low marketcap. You have to believe in the potential of the project.

It depends on your expectations, if you have very little amount of money, and want 10x gain you have to invest in low market cap coins but if you want 2x gain invest in high market cap coins which are not much risky.


Interesting chart. Source? Thanks.

I am looking for a new bounty campaign!

Low marketcap means the potential for bigger percentage gains, but also more risk. Don't invest in a coin just because it is low marketcap. You have to believe in the potential of the project.

Low market caps in most cases isn't really a good sign, unless the coin in question has just been launched. If that isn't the case, then from that point it will be a pure gamble since you then depend on the coin to get pumped badly. Everything with potential will get bought up due to the adoption picking up, everything else fits in the category of rubbish coins. If you are okay with the risks involved, and aren't afraid to swallow a loss as result of this risk, then you can go for it, but investing in something promising is a far safer and better option to go for.

A low marketcap doesn't automatically mean it will grow, there is always the chance of it going lower.

You need to find decent projects to invest in.

A low market cap can mean a new coin, or  a coin that is not widely used.

It is more speculative to buy a new coin that has almost no history on price/supply/demand and all that.

bitcoin has lots of history and is shown to be useful for many things. It is a lot less risky to buy and hold bitcoin as an investment thatn it is to buy altcoins.

That being said, some altcoins are filling a really good niche that they are better than bitcoin on. In that case they would be better to buy and hold if you think that niche is going to do well.

low marketcap = bigger chance of giving you higher multipliers on your investment but the risk that you lose everything because the project fails/there's no interest in it is rather high.
high marketcap = smaller chance of high multipliers but also small risk of a failed project.

Personally I like to invest in projects with 10-30 mln marketcap.
Wrong.
Coin fonder have over 99% of all coins and selling it slow. When new "investors" stop to come he will make new coin.


Well, bitcoin in 2010 had a very little cap and even though it is true that the coin founder had 99% of the coins, he has never moved them. Now bitcoin has the highest cap, but the coin founder still has 1 million BTCs, and if he'd decide to dump them his coin would tank to a few bucks...

I do not think it is wrong but I would agree that you have to take into consideration the ratio between circulating coins and the maximum amount of coins (the closer to 1 the better for investment) and also how long dev coins are locked after ico. Not all coins are like you said, in fact most are not. Veritaseum is like this though if I remember correctly.

No, not really!

low market cap also shows that particular altcoin has nothing to offer and nobody cares about it. in other words there is no demand hence low price and as a result low market cap.

the picture you posted is also 100% irrelevant.
Low marketcap doesn't really show the low demand. It does partially, but the coin can have a low capitalization because of there being not many coins around. I think trading volume is a thing to consider in such a case. If the coin is traded quite a lot, then even with low cap there's a rather high demand for it.
Even though it is true, I still wouldn't say low market capitalization is more beneficial than the high one, because the first one means there's more chance somebody is controlling the coin.

Better in what aspect? If you mean profit then yes it is. But the risk is much greater as it doesn't require a lot of people compared to high cap coins to change the price. I don't recommend investing huge amounts in these coins if you're new to this.

You shouldn't base your judgement too much on the market cap, even though it can be interesting to take in account.
I'd much rather get informations about the project itself, the teams behind it etc...
It basically means the lower the markect cap, the bigger the chances for it to go down.

So low market cap is better for investment?
It mean we dont have huge amount of coins ready for sell?

this is really very objective,
for myself, low market cap are good for investment with little money. and expexting with huge pump or huge dump
because in low market cap the risk is very high.

not always because low marketcap only carry lower risky but not means that is better as an investment, but it's true that they can increase a lot and give you a wonderful big profit like 100x sometimes

Yes and no. It is a lot more risky since it is not well established yet, but it is also the best bet to gain the most value. There have been some low cap coins I have invested in that went nowhere so far and a few I have made 15x already and they are just getting started. Frankly I only invest in low cap coins, but don't put too much in.

Yep, you can invest to altcoins have low market cap, but put many money into these coins just make you try gambling, not is trader.
Because you do not have any reason can convince you should put your money into them, then if the price of them never recover, how about your money Wink?

In short, lower cap means more risk but more opportunity too. It's much easier for a coin with $1million cap to grow 10x than it is for a coin with $1billion cap. But it's also easier for the coin to fail completely, and easier for the price to be manipulated.

Not always low marketcap indicates that an altcoin deserves to be an option in investing crypto. Because, indeed there are some altcoin made by developers just to gain a moment's profit.

Not always. You have to think in terms of the big picture. A low priced coin is easy to buy, but that doesn't make it a good coin. The same is true for market cap, there is very little backing that project, so it is easy to get but will likely show and produce nothing in the long run, you have to research everything.
