Assuming I can gather 500$ a week from here and there,how much exactly should I invest.
I'm not that greedy and there is no time constraint.
Since you said that you are not greedy then probably you can invest $250 because it is a big money in our country. And make sure that you still have some money in your pocket for emergency case. Investing is kinda risky too but learning about bitcoins will help you a lot not get scammed by others.

its all about how much you can take risking your money, you can go all in and buy those coins which have a big development in the future, I think we do have our own position about how much we can take and how deep we can go in terms of trading investment. if you are a risk taker and you can take
the possibility of losing then you can go all in mate.

Just holding bitcoin is enough to make your $500 grow 25% in months time only or even faster and larger than that. Theres another feature that you can relax and rely on the time also just holding it from a secured wallet like blockchain.info,mycelium or for more safety measures trezor wallet or ledger Nano.

Day trading is a very good job it will give us good income but you need to have trading skills,if you just start the trading without any knowledge then you will lose all the money and your target for a week is very huge and it is hard to achieve even for a professional day traders.So you just start bitcoin trading by doing small trades like upto $100 then if you can find profit from it just carry on with it.
If you are able to invest big amount the you can go for long term bitcoin investment it will give good profit also but it take some years.
I am also pretty much not in favor of trading with bitcoin since trading is quite risky and there are sufficient chances of losing your worthy bitcoin in trading and at present prices of bitcoin, one really cannot afford losing bitcoin.

The prices are increasing gradually and it is highly predicted that bitcoin will go beyond 20, 000 dollars by next year. Bitcoin should be used as an asset than as a currency for trading.

I do try putting 100% on my allowance and it turns out good for me. I think it must be on your specification on what are your priorities, so take time to plan first before doing it. In most cases a 50% is enough if that is 500$ then 250$ for investment and other for daily needs. I think you should provide complete details about it, so other members can balance it out they’re answers.

If you aren't quite knowledgeable in bitcoin or cryptocurrency trading, I definitely suggest that you start with a very small amount. With your $500 a week income, I suggest that you start playing around with like $30-$50. Just so it wouldn't hurt you that much financially if you lose most of your trades. Also take note that not because you made profit on your first day, that you will gain profit on the following days. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose.

Yeah, sometimes too much expectations is not good. It can do only worst for that matter. As you've said mate we should start in a little, so we avoid regreting in trading. But profits grow day by day i think it also depends on our instincts and also we should read some news about the good things and bad things happened in bitcoin.

Assuming you have that $500 amount in a week and you want it to invest in crypto currency. My suggestion would be that think of a way or manage that amount on how much you invest and how much would be your pocket money. In that way you cannot compromise you daily needs and expenses and also think of the risks in investing due to volatility on cryptocurrency. A lot of people suggest to invest only the amount that would not hurt your daily expenses.

Just advice, Don't do it too often, actually its not wise.
Maybe you got luck, can you think what happen if when you put 100% for the alts and the bitcoin go to moon ?
Your alts price could be drop, and that's when patience is tested.

1. Divide all of your asset into 50:50 (For Alts Trading : Bitcoin Investment)
2. Divide your 50% of your alts trading into 5 or 10 coins
3. Just take profit 10% or more for each coins, if not possible, just take 6-7%

Your income is 500 dollars weekly? You should deposit 100 dollars in trading and start with that, with profit continue to trade and don't withdraw it, if you are good try with more or don't be greedy and stay on 100 dollars investment. Try to invest in different alts, at least 50 dollars every week, and rest keep in bitcoins. I'm doing the same for years and I have good results, try to not be greedy and you will see that you will be more successful, greediness is a killer I felt that.
Concentrate more on making small profit and save more, you will see how it going, don't forget to tell us what did you choose to do in the end.

The best thing to do is diversify always your investment. The 500$ amount is okay bitcoin trading so I will choose also to invest in bitcoin ofcourse because a big chance to grow my money. The rest will in altcoins those has a future coin.

I guess there is no percentage measurement that we should follow in trading unless you have a knowledge on how to trade your money. However, holding your coin also as a investment will also grow but if you really wanted go have some experience on how to trade then I guess just put only a small percentage of your earned coin.

Always the question about trading is how much money could you risk to gain or lose. I'm including lose because it is already part of trading. I advice to those who are new to trading to just put a small portion or small percentage in trading because it is not easy to recover to lose a big percentage of your money that is a fruit of your hard work.

$500 "It's a very small money".
I see Bitcoin is an expensive ctypto to invest.
Start with altcoin, which has more potential people than any other coin.
Below the falls,
Einsteinium 108.94%   
MonaCoin 89.06%   
YOYOW 82.95%
IOTA 63.92%
Streamr DATAcoin 54.82%   
Stellar Lumens 47.64%
This is a very good and comparatively cheap form of coin, her earning potential is higher in a crypto market.

$500 is too high to start in trading for a new beginner trader, and yes $30-$50 is enough at least you wouldn't be get too hurt when you failed to your trading and worst is when you lose. And while doing your trading just be relax and don't put too much emotions mostly set high expectations that you would get earn in your trading.

If I can get 500USD within a week then I will invest 300USD or about 60%, I believe if I can make an investment then I can get a much better profit than when I just stay and nothing I do. This is indeed an option because our decisions will affect what we can get. I'm optimistic when I can do it well then I can get a satisfactory result. I usually do trading because according to me by trading then I can get bigger result compared to other existing investment at this time.

Personally, I would invest in bitcoin. I waited for correction and invested. In occasion of: how much to invest? You always need to invest as much as you are not afraid to lose.
