I’m going to be accumulating the majority of the coins below over the course of 2018 Q1—I’m a big believer in a diversified portfolio.

Especially in crypto.

I split coins into 3 tiers. Coins in tiers 1 & 2 I will be continuously adding to my holdings throughout Q1.

I based these tiers on my investment strategy, I highly suggest creating a strategy before investing in anything.

You need to have a goal that you’re working towards, and a framework for how you want to reach that goal.

My goal is to increase my holdings of Tier 1 & 2 coins, by trading coins from tier 3 on a short-medium time frame (2–6 months).

I also margin trade Tier 1 & 2 coins and use profits to increase my overall $BTC position.

Don’t margin trade.

It’s bad.

Not margin trading is rule #8 in my “10 Crypto Commandments”.

Some of these coins I don’t believe in as long term investments.

Most of the time, the criteria I use to pick coins starts fundamentally with the team, roadmap, and community.

Once I’ve deemed a coin as “Fundamentally Strong”, I then go into the charts and apply Technical Analysis to determine if I can get a solid entry point.

Sometimes, I’ll see a coin I don’t think will last in the long run, but the chart is just too pretty to say no. I will denote these coins with an [X] by their name.

Cliche Disclaimer: none of this is financial advice, don’t even listen to me, I’m a random person on the internet — I could be full of sh*t and you wouldn’t know it.

Do your own research and only ever invest what you can afford to lose.

Tier 1

Bitcoin ($BTC)

I always hold at least a little BTC. Bitcoin is the market leader, and until that changes, I will always hedge against my Altcoin investments with Bitcoin. I typically have any where from 10–30% of my portfolio in Bitcoin depending on Bitcoin dominance at that time.

Bitcoin dominance refers to the percentage of the total cryptocurrency market share which is held by Bitcoin. You can check the live stat here.

The link also shows the market dominance of the other major coins on the market- spend some time getting to know the chart and notice how coins market caps correlate negatively or positively with each other.

Understanding the market cycles of crypto is pivotal to successful investing.

Tier 2

Neo ($NEO) & Ethereum ($ETH)

ETH and NEO are competitors. They solve the same problems, are both serious coins with large market caps, and I hold both as long term investments.

I’m not hedging against my bets by investing in competitors. It’s feasible to me that these two entities could co-exist in the future in a fashion similar to how Apple and Samsung coexist.

Have you looked at EOS ? You will have very different structure of projects build on Ethereum vs EOS... Hence, I request you study both the structure and then decide which one appeals you more.

I think the crypto you picked is perfect, your analysis and research is very good, if you want to add your portfolio list you can add Eos, Litecoin, Dash and Monero, try to observe and analyze the coins.

This thread belongs to the "Trading discussion" forum board.
OP,just make your own technical and fundamental analysis and don`t ask other people about what to do with your own money.I see that you have some sort of a trading strategy,which is good,but nobody can predict what altcoin will skyrocket soon.I like Vechain and GRAFT,but that`s just my opinion.

Well there is a lot of coins to look for,of course every one will have different opinion and might all be true at the end. You have EOS which a lot of people think it will boom,but to be honest I think it lost the HYPE of the maintnet and we wont see big pump at least for now . You have QLC AND MTH both are gonna launch mainnet at the end of this month and they are at really good price right now . Why I talked about this coins only ? Because simply those are the one I am interested in , there might be more important coins/token but I am not currently follow thus, can not really talk about .

He might find a lot of different opinion and all are legit , they are just different interest .

I prefer to invest altcoins for a short term due to market dipping too much.

I think NEO, ETH, BTC is always prime portolfio in the crypto currency and it has to be there. Yes, your strategy sounds good but Q1 has already passed and you must be starting this with Q2 !

Well there are also some of the coins which has started heads up this year and must have coins. This includes ADA, SCL, JNT, and IOST. These coins are really something and with good team around the project I do feel that they will have amazing path ahead.

So the advice I will give is that any cryptocurrency that is not just there to serve as a coins or a trading asset but provides more services is bound to survive and you can invest in it in the long term. Such cryptocurrencies are springing up everywhere like Bitcoin because it is the first every peer-to-peer network, provides coins and trading platforms, also has its own blockchain, the current market cap, it’s price, its scalability, and popularity are hard to ignore and so will stay for a long time.

I totally agree with your lineup, those coins are my ideals too.
I agree to only invest on the most popular of cryptocurrencies as they are popular for a great reason, more people believe in its great potential and future obviously.

Please stop with EOS majority of the coin is owned by the team. Just short it in finex!

Cryptos invest in bitcoin because they believe that 2018 is the best time to have the promising price of bitcoin that will hit $100000 this year. And lm one of the believers of bitcoin l will monitor the price to surprise me in this coming few months. That bitcoin will give hope to the many.

There has been the speculation of which coin will spike in the year 2018 by bounty hunters. I have come to realize that upon the countless  number of coins on the market, EOS and lympo will be my priority. Most people have diverse opinions that neither of these coins will spike but they prefer BTC and ETH. I wouldn’t give doubt to these coins because they will spike though the market is poor now. I categorise Lympo and EOS as my most dependent coin and I will invest in them lolz.

it has always been bitcoin and it will always be bitcoin that everyone will aim for. only the advertisement on the internet will tell you otherwise and some people think like that after a while of being told to invest in X and Y altcoins.

back in 2017 everyone knew this but we had a couple of months of serious spam attacks against bitcoin and also a lot of drama and FUD was spread about bitcoin which meant a good opportunity for altcoins to swoop in and get pumped. but surely enough as the pumping craze ended so did the altcoin season.

You can find information about ADA or XVG coins. These are the very well-known currencies in the electronic money market. Trading volume in 24h is huge. I think it would be a right decision if you invested in this two pennies

I like this opinion, asking for an opinion to invest will create confusion while your capital is not possible to try all that opinion. Make a smart decision yourself in choosing a coin to invest. All these speculations may not necessarily end in truth. Uncertain market conditions.
And the important thing is, If you experience failure or loss, you will experience and learn until you become more sensitive to the situation.

Bitcoin is the best answer. Then you can invest in NEO or EOS. I also heard SKRAPS is a good token for investing in 2018. Current price is low but will increase soon.

I think the all-time best currency for investing in crypto currency is bitcoin there is no other doubt that if you want to more time then there are many choices available for you it also be profitable make sure it will not affect your profit and hopefully it will be profitable in your future .
