My DCA is every month into ATOM, CTSI. EVMOS, etc from my paycheck, not minding whatever price the asset trades out. It worked for me in the bull, so doing same thing in the bear. ​ >Should I focus only on BTC now, and after market recover (1/2years imo) start moving investment to other projects like ETH? Not necessarily, but you could make BTC your major accumulation. The ETH Merge is coming most likely in August, which means its yearly inflation rate will drop from 4.3% to 0.43% after that
Honestly, no one knows what’s gonna happen because no one can see the future… yes, this is a game of probabilities but statistically DCA is the best strategy! So I’m continuing to add to my bags ETH, DOT, CTSI, ANKR, XYO to lower my previous entry and consolidate these for the next leg up (that it will come - just a matter of WHEN not IF).
I'm not only grateful for the money that scaling solutions saved me in fees but also for the size that Ethereum reached thanks to them! From L2 like MATIC and CTSI, to cross chain like Polkadot or Unique Network and even integration projects like ICP and BNB! All of those together clearly let ETH scale hard!
Totally got your point. After watching the global cap losing more than $2trillion in the past 7 months, I don't think buying at this price is a bad decision tbh. Though, there are arguments Bitcoin is following stocks which could crash more. My ETH, DOT, CTSI recent buys are with DCAs & I have no plan to sell soon, till the next bull; which by historically is after halving.
Lot of mess really ongoing with Solana. From the usual downtime on the network to the sh\*t that happened with Solend trying to take control of a whale liquidation position & hundreds of FUD posts. However, it's much different from LUNA as it doesn't have any death spiral mechanism like the latter. Still in beta mode, and there's much room for improvement & upgrades. Won't go to zero IMO, but I would be interested in buying around the $15-20 range. Was arguably the best performer in the last bull, though the likes of DOT, CTSI, NEAR did well too & it could still put up some decent run in the coming run.
I would go for DIA, OCEAN or CTSI right now. These are interesting projects and ones that are keeping their heads down and building right now. Tbh, I'm leaning more toward CTSI since it was born in the bear market and has enough liquidity allocated for developments.
Yes, ATOM definitely has a future. Been DCA'ing majorly that along with AZERO &CTSI the past weeks Its IBC \[Inter-Blockchain communication Protocol\] is one interesting feature allowing Cosmos sovereign blockchains to trustlessly communicate with each other You can even hold say 10-20 ATOM in your Keplr wallet & get airdropped some tokens from projects launching on the network. The Interchain security will be a game changer.
LINK deserves much more in terms of price action. And AVAX, too much of a decline in the last months - almost -10x.. But have you seen BAT - it pumped like 45% yesterday in the midst of the dip. Pretty crazy… DOT is holding strong as well and CTSI, too! I think they are next to pump nicely when the market stabilize a bit!
Most people are just focusing in BTC and ETH but I'm looking at projects with solid fundamentals that are building now (both established and upcoming ones). There are cheap entries everywhere and it feels wrong to pass up on them. I continue to do my research on FLUID and DCA into ETH, OCEAN, CTSI, DOT, BTC, and more. The bear market can make life-changing gains if one is patient.
Too many from this list are on my portfolio - ANKR, ALGO, CTSI, CRO, CRV, DOT, MATIC, NU, XYO… but honestly, this is nothing new. It sounds like the good old FUD that ends up in nothing new basically… I’m not worried at all! We’ve been through this many times!
Actually curious to see which projects will survive. However, I'm not worried about my favorite altcoin tbh. Cartesi has enough liquidity to continue building and survive the recession. Hype is gone, technology is the focus now and a Layer 2 solution integrating Linux and standard programming environments to blockchain sounds like some cool tech to me... My goal is to keep accumulating CTSI.
I'm buying the dip but I'm certainly not dumping ALL of my cash into anything right now. Using the DCA strategy is best. I'm focused on making my assets work for me, hence I'm looking at ATOM, OSMO, JUNO, EVMOS, SCRT, and ROWAN in the cosmos ecosystem as well as CTSI, which I'm staking on Binance. ...and to answer your questions: \- I don't think we're close to the bottom. More pain to be expected \- Tons of projects won't survive this bear market, especially the memes \- Nobody knows exactly how long that will take
I think these are some of the altcoins that will bounce back the most; BTC, ETH, OCEAN, SOL, CTSI, ATOM, BNB, DIA. I don't know if you have noticed but some, if not all of these projects are even more active in the bear market. CTSI and OCEAN especially are still showing strength in addition to the continuous building.
I'm expecting more pain. The plan is to hunt new gems, DCA, and accumulate slowly and just stake my long-term bags. I'm looking at ETH, ATOM, CTSI, OCEAN, FLD, BNB, and SCRT so far. Buying the top 20 coins is a good idea, although I'm not sure about the likes of SHIB, TRX, and XRP. Just a personal opinion.
Was holding 1000 ADA at about 90 cents give or take...saw that CTSI was pumping like mad and I switched all of it right at the top of the pump....CTSI started dropping like a hot rock and I basically missed out on the 3 dollar ADA pump....if only I just held it and wasn't so stupid and impulsive
Money comes with patience, indeed! We just need to stay longer in the market… this is still a young environment! Projects will real utility and a dedicated team will thrive - this is key! As long as they continue development, these are just market swings… I still HODL strong my ETH, ANKR, CTSI & XYO bags and I’ve been DCAing all the way down! Ready to add FLD too if it’s launching soon! This is a liquidity aggregator with some innovative tech behind! If they solve a real problem, the demand for their solution will pump the price! It’s simple!
I'm not going to throw my whole stack at once, but by buying via DCA at different entry points cos I won't know the bottom anyways Lost so much in ROWAN the past month, so will just hodl that \[it's also staked\]. I have been adding more ATOM, CTSI, NEAR the past weeks \[L1s & L2s will survive this bear imo\], will add FLD next; since it tends solving fragmented liquidity in the space. May be CAKE too, Binance invested in it, some weeks back. And 100x gains will be scarce due to diminishing returns, may be with memes if one is lucky or perhaps with new shining alts in the next cycle like we saw with SOL.
DCA, stake and wait! That’s my strategy! I’m happy I could load up more ETH and some CTSI & ANKR - my web3 blue chips. I don’t think we will regret buying at these prices! At least we can be sure we aren’t buying a top!!
Irrespective of what the market does, have a plan & stick to it. Could be monthly or fortnightly, and with a fixed amount you're willing to invest. One part of me will say buy the VRA dip now, or the NEAR or CTSI dip. But there's the other part that says there's still more opportunity to add to positions, considering what the 2018 bear market did to the likes of BTC & ETH It's only 7 months into the downtrend & most altcoins are already at -90% from ATH. Funny thing is they could go another -50% dump if Bitcoin continues to go down as we're aren't sure we hit the bottom yet. So do not rush the process, have a fix time & do it when they hit.
Given the title, I'd expected a list of unreleased cryptocurrencies here. I think more web3 projects like OCEAN, CTSI, and FLD should be added to this list as each of them are bringing their own innovative technologies to the crypto space and it's nice to see a new vote of confidence for Web3 projects despite the current market recession. We're still early in the month but June isn't exactly giving any bullish vibes. Now's the time to take advantage of the market, focus on the serious projects that are active with building, and accumulate their tokens. My opinion.
I think you just have to be intentional about it. Have a plan and set out an amount of money for buying the dips. Using the DCA strategy works. It's certainly helped me in my crypto journey as I accumulate blue chips like ETH, CTSI, OCEAN, DOT, and NEAR. It sucks to miss out on certain opportunities because you lack more funds but you can't catch them all.
I try to keep a balance, we still need to live meanwhile lol But happy I just added more today - got ETH at $1500 and some CTSI too and thrown in staking! I’m thinking at getting some AXS as well - that APY looks way too good on Binance Earn and we can compound pretty often (and not paying the ETH on-chain fees). Anyway, just set a monthly budget for crypto and stick to it… and if you have even more and prices are slaughtered like today - well, the more the merrier!
Cool article and great strategies, especially buying the dips and going for blue chips; ETH, OCEAN, CTSI, and DIA to name a few. If you have noticed, these projects are focused on building right now, I believe they will take off once we are past this bear market.
No giving up. It's diamond hands on ETH, DOT, CTSI, OCEAN, NEAR, ATOM. The plan is to accumulate tokens of real projects slowly in this market, stake and hold and also look into promising unreleased projects like FLUID. Price is shit but fundamentals are still strong. The market will recover eventually, solid FA projects will bounce back and millionaires will be made.
Losing your keys sounds like an excuse to me because you can store them in a few ways and be intentional about their safe keeping too. The ones left on exchanges are mostly because I'm staking them there. For example, staking CTSI and BNB on Binance or because they're short-term picks. Loosing your keys sounds like an excuse to me because you can store them in a few ways and be intentional about their safe keeping too.
Mostly in stables and waiting to pick up FLD when it hits the market. Doing more staking on Keplr Wallet with ATOM, ROWAN, JUNO, SCRT, OSMO, EVMOS. Recently started staking CTSI on Binance. The returns are decent for each of these assets.
I’ve seen DIA in green when most of the market was in red and recently pumped nicely as well.. They must be doing something good! Glad you’ve heard about IMPA. Cartesi is a Brazilian project indeed and there are also somehow related - some of the funding members of Cartesi come from IMPA (researching or teaching there) - the core team has academic background. They reached out to Erick de Moura as he was more of a management profile and they wanted to have a CEO more business oriented… I listened all this in an AMA. Let’s see! I am actually pretty bullish on CTSI!
I think what people have not yet realized is that luck plays a part in investing. There's every chance that you buy Doge and Shib and still not make profits or vice versa. Another important factor here is your entry point. It's a good idea to get in early or buy into a solid FA altcoin when it dips. I'm using the bear market as an opportunity to accumulate gems like CTSI, OCEAN, DOT, FLD, ATOM, ETH, and NEAR. And to be fair, we were all blindsided by LUNA. If you ask me, nobody is an expert investor in crypto, just buy low, sell high and remember to take profits from your long-term bags on the way up.
Sometimes, it takes some bit of luck to really make it in this space. No one would have thought LUNA will go to zero, or SHIB would be top 20. In the end, we're all speculating Continue to spread your risk & accumulate strong projects that are still building; ETH, CTSI, DOT, EVMOS just to mention a few.
Just projects that I know are coming from this ‘science background’ willing to offer grants and solve problems for the entire space - Cartesi founders are academics actually, well focused on research and innovation. I also have ALGO and LINK (although the price action of LINK was pretty disappointing, I’m still in because of their approach). I sold MATIC tho awhile ago, I’ve been in since 20 cents and took profits. Nowadays I’m putting funds in CTSI because of the lower cap and staking rewards. But that’s just me! Happy to add more projects that are in the same niche of research if you let me know!
Truth be told and speaking personally, I am not mentally prepared to watch my portfolio dwindle, I'm not even looking at it right now. All I'm doing now is taking advantage of this market to DCA into the altcoins that I have convictions on and that includes ETH, OCEAN, CTSI, DOT, NEAR, FLD, ZKP, ATOM, to name a few. I'm optimistic but I have it at the back of my mind that things could go in any direction, so I try to prepare for that.
Anyone holding or buying alts that they think will come out the otherside of the bear market and still have a promising future? I have some CKB, CTSI, INJ and LTO that I'm unwilling to let go of. Partly because they're already down so much that it's hardly worth selling and partly because they seem like the kind of tech driven projects that might still have a future.
Alts are so cheap right now, it's an opportunity to accumulate the ones with long term viability. DCA and staking is my strategy at the moment, I just got some cash and will be picking up OCEAN, CTSI, EVMOS, JUNO, ETH, and DOT. I'll be adding FLD as well when it hits the market. I don't mean to sound like a broken record but solid projects will do really well in the bull run.
CTSI, EVMOS, and FLD are not on the list. I plan on holding these three, among others through a potential recession and bear market. I'm a strong believer of ''solid project with real potential and active teams /tech will bounce back harder''
CTSI - they are building the BlockchainOS - tech solution for building all the complex dapps of the future using any of the mainstream programming languages we have today! Look into it! Low cap and price in the cents territory!
Why is there so much panic about prices, I though we were all here for the tech lol. Just kidding Solid projects are using this time to focus on building and development. I like to go for projects that are doing something unique, like FLUID Liquidity that's building an AI quant based crypto liquidity aggregation system or TEAMDAO that's building the first DeFi eSport gaming dao or OCEAN that's building the Web 3 data economy or CTSI that's building the first blockchain OS. I could go on but you get the point. Indeed, tons of development are happening in the crypto space on a daily basis, we really just have to pay attention to see that and stop crying over short term prices, for those that believe and are invested in real projects with long term viability. Giants like Apple and Gamestop coming into crypto is just the tip of the iceberg, imo. We are damn early.
Everyone & their moms shouting Doge to $1, only to top below 80c in Q1 2021 Shitcoin ponzis getting sent 10x-50x overnight while FA coins suffer in price action CTSI pulling a 60x was great to see. Now down -90% just like the rest of other altcoins. May be its next run will be interesting, if L2's gain traction
I intend to hold my bags to zero or financial freedom. They're mostly long term picks and I'm staking most of them; ATOM, SCRT, CTSI, OSMO, ROWAN. Asides holding, I plan to add a few new gems to my portfolio; AZERO, JUNO, TEAM, FLD. The latter two are actually new and upcoming (for clarification sake), you can check them out. It's only diamond hands here but I also believe in 'taking profits on the way up'.
Of course I’m holding! Wouldn’t make sense to sell now.. and fundamentals didn’t change! I’m in for a long ride, not always a nice ride! Happy to see ANKR mentioned! That’s one of my biggest bags alongside CTSI & XYO! I always watch if the team is dedicated and continues with the progress - only when these criteria won’t be met, I’ll sell in a loss! Till then HODL, stake and wait!
I think it's worth it. Could remember cutting a loss on a play sometime last year & putting it entirely on ETH which worked pretty well. Later sold the ETH at $3k, a good trade. Though, I believe if one could continue to DCA on alts \[especially with low FDV\], they will outperform potential blue chips eventually in terms of ROI. ATOM hasn't really done much for me, the likes of SCRT & CTSI were much better in returns.
<<..AVAX since it launched, LUNA till it crashed>> lol this is so crazy! But great mentions for scalability - Polygon and Cartesi will carry the torch forward. First rollups of Cartesi will run on Polygon actually.. so we can call CTSI a layer3 basically. Also, when their BlockchainOS solution will become fully functional, the adoption will see a real boost - more and more regular software developers will jump onto the blockchain…
MATIC it is.. and CTSI for me! Bought MATIC at 20 cents first time at the beginning of 2021 and made nice profits, to be honest! Hope the history will repeat for CTSI, as it’s hovering around the same price now! I’m staking and waiting on them now! I think they’ll do great in the next bull run! They even built a dApp together - TEXAS HODL’em - both MATIC and CTSI tokens can be used to play! Cartesi can be seen as a L3 compared with MATIC, as the first rollups will be deployed on Polygon (L2), so it will basically help scaling it! Let’s see…
Here's what I plan to buy in terms of weighting: Biggest bag: ETH Medium sized bags: ADA, DOT Haven't yet decided between medium or small: LINK, SOL Smaller bags: BAT, CTSI, ENJ, EFI, GRT
CTSI - market cap around $100M. I bet on it for the next bull run! Cartesi is a layer2 solution combined with an entire BlockchainOS - the framework for developers to build dapps using any programming languages and mainstream coding libraries in a Linux environment. If the execution is right it will give a boost of adoption and manage the onboard a new wave of developers to the blockchain! Let’s see!
Well, too late for the debate.. I already bought ETH, CTSI, ANKR & XYO. And if I would have had more liquidity, I’d have bought even more lol.. Up 20% since yesterday! I’ll take some profits to DCA after in case we go even lower, but honestly I don’t think so! There is enough panic and extreme fear already in the market! Either way, long term is key, like always! These prices will be laughable in a couple of years! But remember to diversify in case one bag disappears..
Cosmos(ATOM) and polkadot(DOT) appear to have their own path. They mostly are separate from the rise and fall of bitcoin. At a stretch, Cartesi(CTSI) appears to be weathering it so far.. but i wont put any money on it. Its just eth/btc or periodically ATOM/DOT. Before this crash i woukd have said harmony(ONE) but bot now.
I think Polygon still wins as the most adopted at the moment. Over 10k DApps, recent partnership being with FLUID Though, took it years before gaining traction. Probably when CTSI gets on Mainnet, with a bug-free product. Others like Arbitrum & Optimism are growing fast too, and gaining developer's interest.
Compounding is it! I staked CTSI for 23% APY 30 days on Binance, so the beauty of it, is that every 30 days I get to compound and stake again! It’s almost 2% / month, but compounding monthly in 10 years gets you closer to 10k tokens from 1k tokens. That’s the real ‘wonder’ and the more frequently you get to compound the better! In the delegated pools, staking directly on chain, the APY is even greater (sometimes even double) but on ETH chain fees will not make it worthy to compound monthly unless you have a really big bag! The power of compound interest is what makes a single penny to get to more than $5 million in 30 days, if it doubles in value every day! We should all acknowledge this power, in time it really pays off!
I’m not worried at all, as I always try to pick coins that actually solve a problem and the more I hold and follow the team’s progress, usually I become even more convinced that I made the right choice. Price is temporary, but what eventually drives the project towards success are the fundamentals and the team behind - like any other startup! And here I can relate to Cartesi - I’ve been holding CTSI since last year. And even if the PA has been in a downtrend I kept accumulating, cause I know what they are building and how dedicated the team actually is to their mission!
Because I'm invested based fundamentals and utility. My portfolio is made up of coins like ETH, DOT, OCEAN. NEAR, OIN and I will be adding TEAM, FLD and CTSI. Of course there's no guarantees but I'm pretty confident in these cryptos.
Well, when ETH was “a rather new technology and nobody knew about it”, I guess this sub wasn’t around either and neither the concept of shilling lol But the coins you’ve mentioned are pretty strong projects with serious fundamentals, so I prefer seeing discussions about these.. rather than memes or other ponzis. It’s just up to us to decide our portfolio - I had CRO since it was 2 cents and no one knew about crypto. com (the token was MCO and the app had the doman “getmona”). I also have CTSI and I’m pretty confident in their efforts of building the Blockchain OS. But to answer your question, no one knows the future, so we can only guess and bet on some projects.
Mine looks about the same but even 20% worse. Worst performer: SOL -56% (was even way worse a week ago or so, glad it's up a little). I wish I gotten into crypto sooner.. or later, and not near the top... Did make small profits on LRC, HNT, INJ, CTSI, MATIC though. Only coin that I'm currently holding that is in profit: LUNA.
You can have a high apy but also need to look at issuance and network inflation. The highest apy I currently get is on KAVA (20%) but it’s issuance means your apy in real terms is actually a negative. I jump in and out of it but CTSI has some crazy rates from memory of around 45% without the same network inflation issues of something like KAVA. But I’ve not looked into that one for a while. My biggest staking bag is in DOT and I get 14%. It’s around 5% when adjusted for network inflation I believe.
Taking profits never left anyone poor lol But I think now it’s not the moment to talk about the profits - it’s just the beginning after months of downside and we shouldn’t sell too early.. I hold ETH, CTSI, ANKR, XYO and I expect at least 2x from here. CVX was pumping nicely these days and I might even sell something soon.. but scaling out, not exiting entirely!
You should be looking at CTSI as well if you got to MATIC… L2s will be making moves, even Vitalik confirmed that they are important for ETH success. Cartesi sits at a lower market cap, but fundamentally is very strong - it offers scalability + accessibility through its Blockchain Operating System! But kudos you’ve got DOT & AVAX in there - huge ecosystems with lots of developments. Impossible not to thrive!
Absolutely! If they have a working product - the work is half done! And a real indicator is the project GitHub activity - I always see XYO first there, and ANKR & CTSI very active, too! Web3.0 projects with constant developments are my go-to ones!
