I'm new to bitcoin and I like everything about it, except for the fact that I wasn't mining coins 1 year ago, which leads to my question; Should I be mining any of the alternative coins?
I do not want to undermine bitcoin, but I do want to "hedge my bet" so to speak, so I am wondering which other coin system should I have alongside bitcoin?
Think of pool-hopping, but now with chains. If you want to maximize profit you should chain-hop. Hop to the chain with the highest BTC profit. Then when it drops, exchange your other coins to BTC and switch to the next chain.
