So far it's going really well, but we are in a bullish phase so It's normal. From my understanding, what's good about it is that the cryptos compensate each other. Today the gain is of $3k, will post later about it.

Hello Everyone,

I started an experiment on cryptocurrencies and I will be posting on this thread the updates.

As the title says the experiment consists of buying the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap and holding them for 5 years. I spent $1000 and bought $10 of each.

You can see the main article about the experiment from https://buyandhold100crypto.com/buy-and-hold-100-crypto-for-5-years-the-experiment/

The latest article was made yesterday, where after 10 days the gain on the initial investment was doubled Day 10

Feel free to suggest me anything

Thanks a lot
Are you going to adjust your portfolio or are you just going to hold, what if in a year the coin at the spot 100 is now 273 in market cap, and another coin took its place at the 100 spot, for what I understood it seems you are going to hold no matter what but it could be nice to hear from you an explanation about your strategy to deal with this since the market is not static at all.

I will just be holding the 100 cryptos I got, no changes will be made, no sell or buy or whatsoever Smiley

These 100 coins are here to stay  Smiley

Vechain!

I think this is a really interesting idea. I actually wrote a little CLI to help compile the coins and exchanges.

I think he can do this but he cannot buy coins which have an expensive price because he only has $1000 to invest. but he still has a chance to cheap coins with only $10 and he can keep it in other wallet and not keep it in the exchanges. this idea is good to follow for every people and they really use cryptocurrency as their investment only and not going to sell in the short of time. maybe later, I will follow this idea and see how much I can save my money for making another investment like him.

It will be interesting to see how your experiment pans out, especially considering that an analysis of the market prices of all cryptos over the last 2 years shows that the top 30 had the most stable growth (compared for example to the top 10 and 100). It will also be interesting to see how transaction fees impact your experiment, and perhaps more specifically, which are the ones with the lowest transaction fees.

Ok thanks for the clarification, I'm bookmarking this since it will be very interesting to see the result of your experiment, by what I know you are going to do great obviously some coins are going to underperform but you will obtain great profits since many coins with lower market cap will grow several times its current value, do you have any plans to invest more each year? Or this is all the money you are going to put in the experiment?

Week 9 – $761 USD / 76.1% Gained

It’s the 9th week since the experiment started, and the rollercoaster is not over 🙂

Been hearing the feedbacks of all the people who are following the experiment and I changed a few things around, from now on I will write about the best performing coins for the week and do a recap for the overall gain.

Bitcoin (BTC) after hitting the lowest price since months of $6048.96 USD recovered to $8,011.65 USD. The dominance at 34.5%, a bit lower since last week.

The overall unrealized gain of the experiment is $761 USD, 17.10 % minus compared to last week.

80 Cryptocurrencies are in minus since last week, this makes me understand that we haven’t fully recovered.

With an overall gain of 76.1 %, the 100 cryptocurrencies together (CryptoETF100) performed better than 62 cryptos from the ones I have.

Let’s talk about our Top3 cryptocurrencies.

Revain (R) with a gain of 74.04 %  since the last week is the best performer. A few days ago It was listed on OKEx and also been implemented Bitpie, №1 wallet service in China. These good news definitely brought a lot of attention to it and made the price recover well.

Status (SNT) is at the second spot with a gain of 22.97 %, a lot has been happening, from the collaboration with True Bit Protocol to winning the Nextplo Award.

Decentraland (MANA) with a gain of 19.74 % is the 3rd best coin of the week. The latest project update looks very promising and the release of the LAND management a lot of investors jumped in.

Week 10 – $1170 USD / 117% Gained

It’s the 10th week since the experiment started, and it looks like we’re going to have fun 🙂

Bitcoin (BTC) recovered amazingly this week, went from $8,011.65 USD to $11,288.21. The dominance at 39.2%, almost 5% increase since last week.

The overall unrealized gain of the experiment is $1170 USD, 53.74% more compared to last week.

96 Cryptocurrencies gained since last week, showing how bullish the market is at the moment.

With an overall gain of 117 %, the 100 cryptocurrencies together (CryptoETF100) performed better than 75 cryptos from the ones I have.

Let’s talk about our Top3 cryptocurrencies.

Verge (XVG) With a gain of 34.42 USD (55.85%) is the best gainer since last week, the value of the stash we hold went from $61.63 to $96.05. XVG is also on the 3dr spot as best gainer since the beginning of the experiment.

Vechain (VEN) whos performing incredibly well gained $29.03 (42.16%), following the steps of XVG it’s also on the top spots, 2nd one as the overall gainer.

Revain (R) with a gain of $27.23 is the 3rd best performer. The implementation on Kucoin has definitely brought more interest from the investors.

Top 5 cryptocurrencies so far :

Tron (TRX) + 1140.07 %, from $10.04 to $124.46 VeChain (VEN) + 876.83 %, from 10.11 to $98.8 Verge (XVG) + 898.47 % , from $9.62 to $96.05 Revain (R) + 748.80 %, from $9.61 to $81.06 Ox Protocol (ZRX) +383.05 %, from $9.99 to $48.24

Worst 5 cryptocurrencies so far :

Pura (PURA) -46.86 % , from $9.62 to $5.11 Mona (MONA) -53.97 % , from $9.76 to $4.49 Next (NXT) -57.82 % , from $9.89 to $4.17 Einsteinium (EMC2) -79.73 % , from $9.51 to $1.97 Bitconnect (BCC) -98.99 %, from $9.93 to $0.01

Another interesting experiment would have been to add a second portfolio of coins from position 100 to 200 of coinmarketcap, and possibly also a third one from 200 to 300 - all with 1000$ investments and to see which of the three groups would perform better in time. That would actually be really useful so as to understand if it is statistically more profitable buying the big stars or the underdogs in cryptos.

This gives us a different portfolio concept, and maybe we can try to make some interesting investments. Watch their development.

 What a great idea! some of those coins could go up massively and give you massive returns.. especially the ones which are sub $1 as you'll have more coins whereas up the tree you'll have little parts of the coins. But looks good and ill keep an eye on this. As McAfee will always say,  it is easier for a coin to move move from $1 to $10 than for a coin to move from $10k to $200k.

I really believe that your experiment will give you a huge profit. However, no one knows what is going to be in 5 years. My suggestion is to buy top 10 coins. Especially NEO, Ripple and ETH.

I’m looking forward to your experiement, 100 tokens or coins are a lot of coins to look out for but I am quite interested what the result will be after 5 years. I think you will gain huge profit based on the initial amount of investment you started with, 5 years is not that long and I wish you good luck with your experiment. Just keep hodling!

I think 5 years is too long I guess we are all millionaire but we can try that as a test and a challenging part for us as a crypto holders and traders. Maybe 2 to 3 years is good enough as long as you hold your coins and when the time that the market is high you can sell it in a higher price to get a good profit. And 5 years is a life killing to wait and you have to risk everything and anything for that year. And also hold your crypto coins for a better future.

Lol is a good experiment) I will follow with interest. Think, at least you will increase your capital five times. The best strategy is long-term holding.
