its always a good time to get into crypto in the long term. A mixed portfolio is always better then one investment, it may reduce returns but it decreases risk. For BTC I would wait for the fork and watch the trend after that.

Bitcoin will bring youthe most profit from all those coins, but it is expansive to buy now. If you would be on your place I would share my money between all those coins. The remining one really cost not so much now and you easily can buy big amount of coins, which are also popular nowadays and can bring you good profit in the future, but I would more say that it is long term investment.

You're probably best of waiting after the fork. Many people here and others on other forums are predicting a small crash after the fork, just as we saw with BTG. Now, don't take my word as truth -- It's a suggestion that I will probably follow as well.

Bitcoin's rise is similar to a bubble (at least for the time leading up to this fork). People are buying in order to get more of that forked coin. Keep this in mind when you purchase!

You might be able to buy bitcoin after the fork at discounted rate, so yeah wait until the fork(i want to buy some too after the fork Smiley). also buy only BTC and ETH, stay away from BCH/ripple(just my suggestion).

The best thing you can do is just try to use that money only to buy bitcoins, that is the best desicion that you can make at the moment. It has been prooved that bitcoin has been the only one who rised a lot during the last few months, and you can check it by yourself.
It was below $600 at the beggining of this year, and now it is between $6900 and $7000 each bitcoin, isn't it very crazy? buy as much as you can, it will go up by a lot of money as soon as possible.

Nobody can tell you what to do definitively. But what we can advise is to spread your funds over multiple investments. It’s better to play safe unless you’re solely opting for higher gains which involves higher risk.

id say that its better to buy altcoins now such as bitcoin cash, etherium, ripple because they are pretty cheap these days but dont buy bitcoin yet rather wait for it until the fork subsided for a possible dip then buy if there a significant price drop. its better  if you can mixed or dived your capital to each of them for a better profit. dont put your eggs on one basket to avoid lossing it all in a single wrong move.

Here's how I see it:
  • An investment in BTC is (right now) a bet that transaction scaling can be solved mostly off-chain, and/or a bet on the power of network effects (more likely to be adopted?) and mature code (less buggy?).
  • An investment in BCH, by comparison, is a bet that transaction scaling can be solved mostly on-chain, but that Segwit2x will fail.
  • An investment in ETH is a bet on Proof of Stake (by way of Casper), and/or on smart contracts.
  • An investment in XRP is a bet that major stakeholders can be prevented from flagrantly misbehaving by social - rather than technical - pressures. (Ripple's double-spend protection works based on individually-curated "these stakeholders wouldn't collaborate to defraud me" whitelists.)
   
I think energy scarcity and global warming mean the coin of the future will have to be Proof of Stake, one way or another, and smart contracts have always excited me. So I like ETH as a long-term bet.

But I also like BTC's first-mover advantage.

Your priorities, and your beliefs about the outcome of those "bets", may be different from my own. Smiley

is it good to wait until bitcoin fork ( 15 november ) or not ?
If you are going to buy into BTC, I would recommend getting in before the fork, mainly so that you don't have to guess whether Segwit2x will be adopted or not; you'll get your coins' value either way.

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

Your choices is great, i recommend that put much higher capital in bitcoin because it can be used like as fiat and you can easily withdraw if you need money for emergency cases. And then divided it to remain coin you want to invest i am sure you will get good profit in the future.

It is good, as long as if you are believe there will be a correction after the bitcion fork. But in my speculation if that was actually true. But to buy the bitcoin will become an important reason for the majority of the crypto users caused by we will be getting the b2x coin from the segwit2x hardfork. You will get free money and you will be able to increase your portfolio amount.
Sorry for your loses to sold all of your bitcoin @$300 for each.

in crypto-currencies? yes
in bitcoin? no.
since you want a long term investment then invest all of it in bitcoin. you can buy slowly not all at  once. buy the dips for example.
the time is always right to buy bitcoin and hold for long term.

Quote

you said you want long term so only bitcoin.
all the rest are good/excellent investments for short term or in other words if you are a trader. if you look at their histories, they get pumped in a month or less then it is all downhill from there. so you may buy now, they get pumped 3x and since you are holding long term they come down in next 6 months and in a year the price will be lower than what you bought again and you lose money.

Quote

hard to say. it can go both ways. you can wait for a dip and buy some now, wait for another dip and buy some more and wait for the fork and the possible dip and buy some more until you are out of money and then hold.

i would stay away from Ripple and Ethereum if i were you. at least for a while until their dumping stops and the pumps begin. but i am mostly an altcoin trader and i'd like to think i know what i am doing when i buy these altcoins. if you are new, it is best that you stick to bitcoin only and not to think about investing in any altcoins at all. try sticking around and watching the charts of these altcoins in long terms and see how long does it take for them to go up and how long to come down. then think about investing in them.

i excluded BCH intentionally because BCH is currently on a pumping spree which can become even bigger soon as the SegWit2x fights heat up. and in that case there would be a lot of short term profit to be made Grin

its always a good time to get into crypto in the long term. A mixed portfolio is always better then one investment, it may reduce returns but it decreases risk. For BTC I would wait for the fork and watch the trend after that.

Investment could differ from person to person. Priority needs to be that first is your country supporting it if yes then only invest. Because you may be investing for along term and say in between your country decides to ban it and you have to sell it might e value of btc would be down at that time so you end up making a loss. So ideally its a good investment for long run but based on various conditions for you it could be deiced if it was worth or not.

You can start investing to some alts because their value drops few weeks ago and may soon goes up after the hard fork Ethereum is good you can also try ICO's if you want it is believe that these tokens will have a good pricing after the fork. You can still choose to invest in bitcoin because it is always a good choice and surely will give a higher chance of success either you choose from this things one thing is sure crypto currency investment will give a promising return.

Mixed it between Bitcoin, Ethereum, and BitcoinCash, (50%BTC, 30%ETH, 20%BCH) I think this is better to get a profit opportunity and be able to cover each other's risks. It's better spreading it (make some investments) to stand guard on the risks to be gained rather than just focusing on just one coin till be overconfident to gain profit just in one coin only. Just doing it now do not wait fork I guess, but it's all up to you friend and I just give little suggest to you about that, Good luck to you!

OP, just buy and hold Bitcoin. There is no other cryptocurrency that has good prospects for long term investing. But as always, wait for the dip before buying.

I believe the dip will come after the hard fork when the short term traders start taking profit, around November 15.

Now is the best times to buy any coins including bitcoin that many people are thinking it is at the overbought angle of the trading circle. We have to accept the reality that bitcoin and others crypto currencies are still at the accumulated face of  the trading if you study the chart very well and using volume indicators to know the mind of traders. Ripple is good and if you buy ripple now the assurance of get millionaire of dollars from you investment of $25,000 in the next 10 years from now is there.

The investment we are doing right now I think it's best to look at the Conditions. currently Bitcoin has a very good growth rate so I think choose Bitcoin if we want to make a profit. Many people believe that Bitcoin can change his life much better. conclusion that Bitcoin is currently much better than other Coin. Make the best of it as soon as possible because the momentum will not come again.
