In my opinion, there's no better time to accumulate than now \[Use DCA, and don't forget to diversify.\] >Always looking for something new that has potential. CTSI isn't new, but it has potential. It's a Layer 2 solution that's integrating Linux to blockchain and enables developers to build dapps with traditional programming languages. L2s will blow up in the next bull, plus Cartesi is gaining momentum among the Ethereum developer communities via its participation in hackathons like ETHIndia.
>Knowing the differences, which one would you pick to survive the bear market? I pick staking over lending. I'm doing that mostly with ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS, and CTSI. I DCA into my long-term bags monthly and honestly? I would not take out a loan to buy crypto for any reason. \[Invest what you can afford to lose.\]
I already mentioned OCEAN. You can also earn passively by exploring veOCEAN, psdnOCEAN, and data farming. Other fundamentally solid web3 projects worth mentioning include GTH, CARD, AIOZ, DIA, CTSI, etc. Cardstack is working on releasing web3 tools that facilitate its mainstream adoption, with the likes of Card Space and Card Catalog already in the dev phase.
>So what is everyone buying and what are you holding through the bear market? I'm not buying anything for now. I'm holding BTC, ETH, ATOM, MATIC, EVMOS, DOT, OCEAN, and CTSI. I buy with DCA monthly. I believe my L2 bags \[Cartesi and Polygon\] will pay off massively, plus the projects are building despite the bear market, so that's a bullish sign, right?
FTX contagion isn't over imo (Genesis just halted withdrawals). But yeah- you can DCA slowly, as literally every altcoin is down 90% from their ATH prices. I've only added CTSI & MATIC recently. I also think bottom isn't far anymore, so it's not a bad idea to start scaling in slowly.
I certainly didn't expect yesterday's events after the market had such a good week, but the plan remains the same - DCA and stake my long-term assets. If I spot a good entry, I'll add more ETH, ATOM, and CTSI. Some of the biggest plays for the next cycle, IMO.
Best advice I've read today. I see OP, LRC & MATIC up the past days. Though, I think Polygon pumped due to Instagram news of minting & selling NFTs Sticking to DCA'ing in ATOM, CTSI & NEAR as I have been doing!
I'm investing in high and low mcaps. Low market cap projects: CTSI and OCEAN because developments have been consistent for them. CTSI is a unique Layer2 solution that integrates Linux and mainstream programming environments to blockchain, and it's gaining traction and adoption as it actively participates in big web3 events. OCEAN is focused on data. In the top 100: ETH, ATOM, MATIC, and DOT.
Yes to staking in the bear market. One of the, if not the best ways to earn passive income in these harsh conditions. I'm staking ATOM, EVMOS, JUNO, and SCRT on Keplr, CTSI on the Cartesi Explorer via pools, and a few assets on Binance for decent yields.
Going by this, you are an investor & not a trader. It's best to stick with the blue chips \[BTC, ETH\] and hold for a long horizon. Also, try to check if that exchange supports staking so you can put them to work & earn decent yields; in the case of Binance, there's tons of assets to select from \[GLMR, DOT, CTSI\] for staking. Coingecko & coinmarketcap are best aggregators to check a coin info & its community from which you can do your own research.
You can do both. I don't see why it has to be one or the other. While most projects will die in this bear market, there are still many fundamentally solid altcoins to accumulate. Gonna stack up on ETH, CTSI, OCEAN, MATIC, ATOM, etc while keeping an eye out for new projects.
You forgot to mention Google among the big players. There are surely more pros for crypto payments than the cons. Speed, 24/7 availability, and also the ease to mention a few are reasons why it will play a big role in adoption I remember paying via crypto for a flight easily using Travala, which is one of the most popular platforms for bookings & flights. And then, the likes of Utrust & NOWPayments make it seamless for businesses to accept crypto payment from a variety of options like BTC, ETH, CTSI & many other assets.
You can [run](https://medium.com/cartesi/running-a-node-and-staking-42523863970e) a Cartesi node & participate in the staking system. By running a node and staking, you will receive CTSI rewards from Cartesi’s mine reserve for each block you produce.
Staking is the best way to earn passive income in the best market and there are many platforms available for that. I’m earning decent yields by staking BNB, ATOM, OCEAN, CTSI, and EVMOS. Unfortunately, there’s not much that can be done about the downtrend of the market than to be patient and wait for recovery.
I'm not sure what yields you are getting on ZIL & CRO, but there are decent returns in the Binance earn section; DOT, BUSD, CTSI, etc are included You can also check the cosmos ecosystem as it has good yields for staking, but the only ish is that you need to wait 21 days to unbound which might not be okay should you need instant liquidity Providing liquidity on DeFi protocols; Pancakeswap, Uniswap can as well earn you passive income.
Bought more CTSI in anticipation of the Cartesi testnet launch \[scheduled to happen today\]. It's a huge milestone for the project and groundbreaking projects/dapps \[built using mainstream coding languages\] will be deployed on its rollups. It's a long-term hold. Also picked up more ETH and ATOM.
I think you have said it all. DCA and Diversification are important when it comes to investments. I have been focused on accumulating cryptos like ETH, MATIC, ATOM, CTSI, DIA, and others. I'm also keeping tabs on upcoming projects with good potential. Getting in early on such projects isn't a bad idea.
Well said mate & I fully agree. Not doing anything different from these tbh, but I will always have a lunch money set aside to buy microcaps, made cool gains with those in the last bull >Ensure my portfolio has diversity in use case: L1, L2, Oracles, etc That's what I've been focusing on in the past months. Most especially METIS & CTSI which are Layer 2s
I’m nearly done DCAing into ETH. I only got several more weeks to go assuming prices stay below 2K. After that, I’ll hit my goal. I already DCA into BTC. What coin should I target next. I like XRP a lot. I’ve also looked at ADA & ALGO. I want ATOM to get more utility on its coin, before I switch to that. I prefer to DCA Into Blockchain Operating Systems as opposed to Layer-2s, so I have an eye on QNT & FLUX. It’s also why I would consider starting with CTSI, if I were to consider Layer-2s. Any other recommendations?
Staking ATOM on Keplr. Stakers earn up to 18.93% per yer and staking makes them eligible for most of the airdrops that happen on Cosmos Ecosystem. I'm also staking CTSI on the Cartesi Explorer via pools and on Binance. The yields differ but are sustainable.
The [cosmos eco](https://tcnetwork.io/) probably has the best returns for staking. EVMOS really held its value despite its 3 digits APR, so you can look into that. But for less exposure to inflation, ATOM, NEAR & CTSI fits in for me.
Sentiments for Q4 are bullish. Let's see how that goes. I'm still holding my altcoins, and there's no reason to give up on them as long as developments are ongoing. If anything, it's time to accumulate and my focus remains on ETH, ATOM, and L2 solutions; MATIC, CTSI, OP, etc.
I'm invested in ATOM, CTSI, OCEAN, GMX... They're bringing different innovations to the crypto space. FLD is on the list too. I'm increasing my share in the FLD token pool by participating in FLUID's reward program while waiting for the launch.
No regrets for me. Despite my losses, the knowledge, opportunities, and profits I have gotten from the crypto space have been life-changing. Each month I put in a specific amount of money into ETH, CTSI, and ATOM. It's a simple strategy and might not seem like much but it works for me.
Since you've mentioned how you wanna go with your distribution then I'll suggest that the: - 40% high caps should basically be for BTC, ETH, MATIC and DOT - 25% low cap should include the likes of CTSI, AE, QANX, TOMO, etc. Please take note that all mentioned are top smart contract platform coins.
VRA- Verasity; seals with e-Sports & Digital Entertainment. Promising Roadmap FLD- FLUID; liquidity aggregator for CeFi & DeFi. Adopted Polygon as its commit chain CTSI-Cartesi; Decentralized layer 2 scaling solution with Linux integration
Do your research on the platform you want to stake beforehand. Be careful if and when staking on centralized exchanges. Binance is the only one I'd suggest and you can stake assets like 1INCH, BNB, CHR, SAND, CTSI, DOT, and more on there.
Everything is literally risk in this space. Diversification is key & not putting all in a single place. I trust Binance the most when it comes to centralized exchanges, keeping some chunk of my CTSI stack there, while having most of them in the decentralized pools.
For POS assets, you can easily stake with validators via the supported wallet, like the case with Cosmos projects \[SCRT, ATOM, EVMOS\], I get decent APYs on those. I have CTSI staked in the decentralized Cartesi pool as well earning 20% APR Even though Binance is the safest centralized platform, I still feel good having control of the keys to my asset.
Well, I treat them as.. investments! Long term game, not needing the money and don’t really following the short term price action! Apart from BTC and ETH, my biggest alt bags are ANKR and CTSI - I’ve staked them and checking again next year!
Staking on Binance Earn is the easiest and most straightforward. But also the APY is way better (more than double if we are staking directly on chain). I stake CTSI in the delegated pools & ANKR - staking just went live and almost all types of wallets are supported.
According to recent reports which I saw, a wallet on Binance was liquidated on an ETH trades worth more than $4.4M, which is entirely a massive loss. But, aside from that, I believe now is a good time to utilize a portion of my stables that I have been holding to easily DCA and acquire more of my favorite tokens, which include YGG, RIDE, NGM, CTSI, and many more that are exhibiting a bullish stance.
I hold some BTC and working toward owning 1 Bitcoin, and that's it. My focus now is on altcoins. They'll give more ROI than BTC. Diversifying into OCEAN, MATIC, CTSI, ETH, PYR, BNB, and ATOM, are some of my favs.
Stay afloat? Lol. My portfolio has been underwater for months. I'm looking at the bear market as the opportunity it is, and I am accumulating some assets; ETH, DOT, CTSI, ATOM, OCEAN, and MATIC. How does the saying go? Generational wealth is made in the bear market.
Bitcoin was my first purchase. Sold for decent profits, then when the bull run became intense, I switched to altcoins for more gains. Diversification is key. I still prefer alts at the moment, but might rotate some gains from my ETH & CTSI stack to BTC back at some point & lock it for years.
What I did once is take a loan in Binance with CTSI as collateral just to buy more CTSI (there are a couple of coins that stay in staking for the loan duration, so the interest is minimum). Then on the pump, I paid my loan and bag the difference. Free money, when you have no money to invest :) But of course, do it carefully and avoid liquidation (that’s why I bought the same coin - to add it as collateral if things go south).
True, he might be right. I was also thinking Q4 2023 will be the time most alts will start crawling back to their previous prices. > The yields on Binance and Freeway are a good place to start. No doubt. I'm in the CTSI staking pool on Binance at 16% APR. Never used Freeway, is the supercharger still on?
It's highly recommended for beginners to start with buying either BTC/ETH & stake them. Trading is for the Pros. After 3 yrs in crypto in my case, I still prefer the buy, hodl/stake method vs trading. The incentive to lock ATOM, CTSI, SCRT & many others is still sustainable & rewarding.
Aside MATIC, most of my current holdings are below a billion mcap. So it's either they go to zero, be at the same price or better than current worth. A diversification between Cosmos eco & layer 2s \[CTSI, GMX, LRC\] forms my current folio.
$500k per BTC $20k per ETH $10 per CTSI $100 per DOT $1,000 per BNB These look like decent prices for me to exit. However, knowing myself, I'd probably stick around for a long time. Why exit when there are endless opportunities to take advantage of in the crypto space? Buy, take profits, rinse and repeat.
I'll be checking out the low caps mentioned here as I'm not exposed to them right now. 100x isn't written in stone, but in my opinion, FLD, APTOS, GMX, CTSI, and OCEAN can give massive profits to investors/holders in the long term. Each of them has good potential for growth and there are active developments too.
There's no certainty that all the possible bad news has come and that the dumps are done are over with. Expect anything in this market and be prepared for all scenarios. If the market pumps from here, I've been buying dips on ETH, OCEAN, CTSI, MATIC, ATOM, DOT, and others so I'm definitely seeing good profits and if the market dumps, I have funds to buy more... Win-win. At this point, I'd love an up-only market tho :)
No one knows, and anything could happen. I'm looking forward to how Q4 would play out. > Looks like 23k BTC and $1700 ETH are the new good prices to buy at. Thoughts? It was a good time since 20ks & now it's also a good time. Find it funny when people say they're waiting for a bigger dump when literally all alts are still at -80-90% from ATH. Added ETH, ATOM & CTSI recently, good discount I'm taking.
Check out Cartesi. That's another revolutionary and innovative project that's offering a Linux operating system in addition to a blockchain infrastructure, which allows decentralized applications to be developed in familiar programming languages without the need to write Solidity code. Heard of QAN recently, yet to research it... could be a competitor for CTSI
If you ask me, it's always a bad time to buy shitcoins, even more so in the bear market. However, for projects I believe in, It's the best time to buy. I have been DCA'ing into ETH, BNB, CTSI, OCEAN, ATOM, MATIC, etc since the bear market hit.
Yes. DOT is one of my biggest bags. Alongside CTSI & ANKR. Don’t mind HODLing long term (as long as the ecosystems are developing, of course). And so far so good, lots of things going on for these projects! Patience will be rewarded!
It's not really new but CTSI is my hidden gem. It's the first decentralized blockchain OS allowing devs to build with Linux. This is great because Linux is the most well known programming language, and very few (if any?) cryptos operate with it.
Pooling liquidity of volatile tokens in a bear market doesn't really sits well with me. I would rather do that for stablecoins tbh. But single staking is good, especially if the token is down 90% like most altcoins are. You get about 18%-20% APR staking either of VRA, CTSI or ATOM. Might not be much to some people. but it's still a good strategy to grow your holdings, apart from outright accumulation.
My conviction play is ETH, OCEAN, and CTSI. My FOMO play is ATOM \[just a little more before I have my target amount\]. I don't have a 'wtf, why not' play right now. In this bear market, I'm being intentional about where I put my money.
As long as it has solid fundamentals and a team that consistently delivers on milestones, then the probability to survive this bear market is high. You have some solid alts in your portfolio, ATOM, CTSI, OCEAN, and BNB would make good additions in my opinion.
I'd rather do my own research than rely on an influencer's words. Back then when I always listened to these influences, 90% of my purchases ended up in a loss. Since I started making my own findings, I've discovered projects like OCEAN, DIA, CTSI, FLD, and SCRT and I've made and am still making good profits from them.
My major hold is ETH, followed by CTSI, OCEAN, MATIC, and ATOM. I'll be adding FLD in the coming months. Fundamentals and utilities are solid plus I really like the idea of the OS for blockchain which Cartesi is working on. The concept of FLD's cross-chain liquidity aggregator leveraging AI quant-based strategies is viable too.
Great picks you've mentioned here. Accumulating and holding them in the bear market is a good idea, I'd add DOT, EVMOS, SCRT, CTSI, and GMX to the list. For research, I would also look into unreleased projects like FLUID and Mystiko.
I’m starting to see NEAR more and more lately… they are becoming quite popular and they are pretty vocal about their developments. It will see some upside from these levels, that’s for sure… Other 2 that I like are ANKR and CTSI - both important for Web3 and onboarding new developers onto the blockchain.
I don't see how it's a good idea to ape into anything right now. The best time was when the market was red not when almost all the altcoins are pumping. That being said I do have the likes of METIS, BNB, ATOM, CTSI, MATIC, and EVMOS on my watchlist. Go for solid fundamentals, long term viability and utility.
