It depends on how much money will you use. If you have small amount of money to use then you need to buy few coins (like 2-3 will do) then if you gain some money, invest it on another coin. You can buy a coin one at a time if you want. I recommend to buy like 4-6 or 7 coins max for long term maybe. That is what my mentors said so I will say it to you also Smiley

There is no limitation on your portfolio, you can add as much assets you can. As a in the above quote it is upto you, you decide upon the amount you have to make a perfect portfolio. If you go through the portfolio of different users, almost everyone has got bitcoin and ethereum within it, apart from that based on the research they hold other assets.

I would keep most of my money in BTC and ETH. Be careful with altcoins. They are more volatile than bitcoin.

Investing in crypto well depends on you on how many coins you can diversify. Just invest that has a great project 3-4 coins is good. As long you can manage to monitor all that is okay.

It depends how much money you're working with.  Ideally I'd say you want to work with around 10+ coins at least at a time.  But if running 10 or more tokens means you're only putting $20 in each then maybe consolidate that into 3 or 4 maximum.  Working with smaller amounts will get you eaten alive by fees.  Diversifying is very very important though.  Where one coin is dropping another is probably rising somewhere.  As the saying goes don't put all your eggs in one basket.

It depends on how much money you will use. If you have a little money to use, then you need to buy some coins (like 2-5 will do) then if you earn money, invest in another coin. You can buy coins one by one if you want and better than the results you develop again do not immediately taken.

Buy more cheap coins as many as you can there is no limitation in investment in cryptocurrency so its up to you if how many different coins you will add in your portfolio and from my own experience buy as many coins which is valued atleast $0.02 as the now it will eventually increase the value if it is a good and trusted project and team.

I think you can choose 4-5 coins according to the money you have, if you have a lot of money, you can buy Eth, Monero, Litecoin, Dash, if you have a little money, you can choose cheap coin, you can buy Gems, ADA or Stellar Lumens.

cryptocurrency market is still small and heavily influenced by Bitcoin, so it is better to add the following to your portfolio:

  1. Bitcoin: As I mentioned above
  2. ETH: most of the tokes depend on it so it will have value in the future.
  3. Monero or Dash: High privacy.

The rest of the cryptocurrencies are just duplicate versions of the above list, useful in the case of short investments but will lose their value mostly

If you are not yet feeling confident that you will succeed for having so many alts then why don't you start first in two: btc and eth. Those are two of the most trusted crypto and both reliable also. It seems that you are still a beginner so just set these as your practice ground for now and continue to expand your portfolio once you already familiarize the field you've chosen. Good luck. Smiley

I myself started with just 1, that is the ever king of cryptos BTC. Then as i move on from it, i go to ETH. After a while i went in to NEO and LTE. Now, I'm purchasing coins that allows me to have 100 shares for only a buck. I've veen very successful in some but most of it flopped. It's all about reading the market. But i think 4-5 strong coins is a good way to start.

This depends on quite some factors.
1) How much money do you have available? Is it enough to split? Or just a small starting investment?
2) What is your plan? Do you want to make short-term profits or rather long-term ?
3) Did you already read into projects? Choose those you have trust in. Those who seem to be legit and useful.

You should try to balance your whole portfolio.
Choose 1 or 2 low risk / low reward coins for stability, a few mid risk/reward coins and a few high risk / high reward coins (potential moonshots).
How exactly you balance those out, depends on you. For a more 'conserative' portfolio choose 50% low risk/reward, 35% mid risk/reward and 15% high risk/reward coins.

If you like the risk, suggest you buy some cheap cryptocurrency, then wait for the rise!

If you are a conservative investor, you can buy some BTC,ETH.LTC, etc. These COINS will grow slowly!

Beyond Bitcoin, you don't really need to diversify. Altcoins still follow Bitcoin's growth for the most part, so diversifying with them doesn't really work. This, of course assumes that by diversification, you mean spreading assets around to mitigate risks. The way things are going, every altcoin will die before Bitcoin does, so "diversification" actually raises your risk.

If you want to grow your portfolio though, everything is off the table. As I've said, the markets generally follow Bitcoin's price movement, but a few coins here and there could do better than it in short bursts. Since you're essentially gambling at this point, there's no ideal number -- go for things that are doing well or are projected to do well, etc.

You should have more than one coin, cause it's not wise to put all your investment in a single coin. But there is no recommended number of coins or any specific coins that you should/must have in your crypto currency account. If you have the time and money, I suggest you to have 3 Altcoins along with Bitcoins, means 4 coins in total.

Crypto is really new and there are no crypto investment theories created yet. However, one can learn from general investment theory. According to some old corporate finance textbooks I read in the past, professional investors should create a portfolio of investments that have limited inter-correlation.

This means that if you have 4 investments, ideally, if one investment goes south, the other 3 do not follow the same pattern.
Hence, you want a low correlation between those assets.  For example, if you invest in real estate and suddenly the economy turns into recession and it's difficult to sell your property, its good if you have an investment which is not affected by the same industry forces, such as a bond that is given out by the government of a country.

From an upside perspective, sure, it's possible to diversify in different user cases of cryptos; you can invest in security tokens (verge), payment tokens (litecoin), platform tokens (ethereum, neo). The returns among these different user cases could differ which helps to compensate if one of these tokens doesn't generate optimal returns.

However, from an overall risk management perspective, its very difficult to select different coins that do not correlate. I have done several analysis and found a very strong correlation of several coins and bitcoin prices (over 60%, often between 80-90%). Hence, if you buy a mixed portfolio of different tokens, although you can differentiate based on type of crypto (like security tokens, payment tokens, platform tokens), all tokens are still very correlated with bitcoin. So if bitcoin goes bearish, your entire portfolio will be affected negatively.

It's therefore smart to take a broader perspective; if you invest in crypto, you can diversify among different user cases for the tokens, but make sure you also invest a part of your other assets into non-crypto related asset classes (real estate, bonds, stocks, etc.). In addition, it's important you are aware of your own risk appetite. If you are a risk taker, you can apply less diversification in your crypto portfolio. If you want to minimize your crypto risk, you can consider investing only in bitcoin. In the near future, there probably will be bitcoin ETFs, which could lower the risk even more. ETFs are synthetic investment products that follow the price of for example bitcoin. So you can make profit if bitcoin goes up without you requiring to buy actual bitcoins so you don't need to worry about being hacked etc. It's not like a future which has a fixed end date, so it's more flexible as well.

There are no specific and exact numbers of coins that will be put on diversification.

It will depend on how will you managed all coins on your portfolio. Why limit yourself in a specific number of coins if you know to yourself that you can properly managed it and you afford it.

You know yourself better than ours so analyzed what you think you can managed. It's all in your own hands to decide.
