Hello guys, I'd like to discuss with you about the strategy for investing cryptocurrency in 2018,
if your friend came up to you with $100,000 that he's willing to lose in the crypto market, how would you advise him to invest and why?

Here's the strategy I'm currently adopted in my own portfolio, I diversify in the top 30 altcoins and invested proportionally to their market cap,
it's basically a market cap weighted portfolio, and by this portfolio, I aim to achieve a better performance than just Bitcoin (benchmark.)

Update: I wrote an article about one of my favorite portfolios that I think it's a good start for the most average investor.



It yields 2160% in backtesting for the year of 2017 with the historical data, read here: https://josephyap.me/balanced-cryptocurrency-portfolio-average-investor/

If i would have that amount right now,i will split it to a 50% bitcoin 30% ethereum and 20% to trade with some shitcoins daily,it is depends on your trading style,i am scalper and my average gain is 10-17% daily.Ive been using this portfolio from the past 2years and i am sure most of you wont agree but this is how i play the game,also spare some BTC so you can buy alts when the market bleeds.

I would recommend that you invest in ICO, because most of the time people will say that ICO is a big risk and you need to be careful.
But in my opinion, investing in altcoin is more likely to lose money than it is to invest in ICO, because you can't hold altcoin for a long time, but you can't sell the ICO project of the investment too. Grin

That depends what he wants to do with his money.
Is he a careful type who wants a relatively safe investment? Then go for some of the top 10 coins. I prefer more to mix it up with mostly low-medium risk coins and one or two high risk high gain coins.

I'm pretty sure Bitcoin will go up above $20.000 this year, but that is only if Lightning Network solves its problems. If its current scaling problems persist, then I doubt we'll see $15k+ anytime soon.

I wish I could invest everything I have in COSS. But I hold other good coins (Waves, Shift, SunContract & SpectreCoin) and since my vacation is in a month, I'm passing on this dip and not spending any fiat.
COSS is a decentralized exchange like Binance and KuCoin, but gives 50% of the trading fee back to token holders (Binance doesn't do this, KuCoin does but I read they will lower this number). They will soon implement fiat trade (March) and I'm pretty sure we will see at least 5x by the summer especially because DEX are the future.
SunContract is a decentralized energy trading platform. They have relatively low market cap compared to Power Ledger which doesn't even have a working product yet, while SunContract released their product just recently (in January). So once it gets some recognizition, I'm expecting it to go 5x+ soon-ish (6 months).

COSS and SunContract are my big bets for 2018 where I'm definitely expecting at least 5x gain around the summer. Waves and Shift are more long term holds (2019), while SpectreCoin is the dark knight here. It could go 20x in 2018, but it could also die (although this is unlikely).

Firstly i will ask him what type of returns he will wish to see and the risk he is willing to take. In general wise i will advise him to invest a big percentage in ICO project and a minal percentage in BTC and ETH. The reasons that i am choosing this is ICO projects have more potential in earning more money, having BTC and ETH is more of a long term and safer approach.

100k is a decent amount so I would put like 80 percent in safe investments, 

I would do like
60 percent- eth
20 percent- btc

The other 20 percent I would do higher risk coins with higher potential returns:  Elixir,  Rebl, coss, gifto, etc

I would do 60% into the big three and the rest of it into IoT Chain (ITC). They have the potential to grow like NEO.

-chinese coin
-security for IoT
-expanding into Korea
-big backing from big funds
-stellar team
-known as the IOTA of china

I think the most important thing is too look at what is driving the market, last year privacy, Lending and masternodes tokens perform exceedingly well, but so far this year, I think AI and IOT projects will set the pace this year and others to follow so follow the trend and you will make huge profit
