Both moves are significant steps towards crypto adoption, but I believe the ANZ bank's recent use of ChainLink blockchain for fund transfers could have a broader impact. ChainLink is known for its reliable oracles, but we should also keep an eye on newer oracles like DIA and Supra, who are introducing innovative solutions to the market.
The attention around oracles is growing as top oracle projects such as Chainlink, DIA and Supra oracles are consistently working towards seamless ways to connect real word data to blockchain tech. Supra oracles is taking it a notch higher by bringing bridgeless crosschain interoperability to blockchain tech.
I recently read that asynchronous backing will reduce the parachains' block time to 6 seconds and the entire TPS will be much faster. I love DOT, but quantity isn't quality. We need more quality parachains joining the ecosystem. One of my projects, DIA, has a quality case study on ASTR. I also like EQ, ACA, PDEX, GLMR, etc. We definitely need more crowdloans.
That's interesting. I often hear about the Alliance Block on Telegram too, and it's good to know that they're putting effort into marketing. An alliance with DIA would indeed be intriguing. Let's keep an eye out for potential collaborations in the future!
There are some that do offer that, but yeah, not many. Though usually etfs do not track asset value 1:1, they're usually at reasonable levels. E.g. Dow Jones index is at $34 624, yet DJE, an etf tracking it, is at 328 €, or SPDR DIA is at $346. Which is 1/100th the price, differences are usually due to tracking errors, fees, or currency exchange/hedging. Though there is no legal reason against having e.g. 1/500th the price (afaik). So they could make an etf where one share could be any arbitrary number (or fraction) of bitcoins.
Absolutely, communities play a crucial role in the success of projects. The larger the community, the greater the adoption rate tends to be. I've observed a few communities, such as RUNE and DIA, grow significantly in recent times. However, in my opinion, community size is not the only factor to consider. The utility of a project's token is also important because if there's no demand for the token, it becomes essentially useless.
I am very bullish on Chainlink for all the reasons above, plus being the backbone of DeFi, or how some call it, the Achilles Heel of DeFi as a possible single point of failure. LINK is still super cheap, and surely the go-to oracle, but eventually it should go up, and make other oracles follow the suit on steroids. I've been anticipating, and getting about $200 worth of LINK every month, which getting around $100 of smaller cap oracles, namely DIA and NEST as a moonshot attempt. We will see, but I hardly can see a better project than chainlink to make a bridge between the legacy monetary system and the crypto economy!
And not just that, we actually got several very solid new projects in this bear cycle. I apped in Weaver Labs a few weeks back and I think this one will make significant changes in our lives. The project is devoted to boosting telecoms and improving connectivity and it already made some seriously strong partners like Nokia, Cisco, Ericsson, Samsung, etc. Besides this, new one, I also keep DCAing in OCEAN, FET, DIA, ETH, BTC... The bull run is just around the corner and I will be ready this time.
Exactly. The problem is that so many people put their money in shitcoins or buy solid ones but sell too soon. I am DCAing in blue chips, and several low MC tokens like DIA and ADE. I have all the time in the world to wait for them to pump, that's the only sure way to make money in crypto.
To be honest, I didn't pull all my profits in the last bull and that's the biggest mistake of my life, but I am ready for this one. I can agree, buying cheap is the best way to make solid gains, and it's the most important part of a successful story. I keep DCAing in BTC, ETH, OCEAN, DIA, FET, and now the first new token I added in this bear market, the ADE. I can wait for several more months for a bull run to begin.
I am not familiar with Krest, but I know several projects that pumped fast and hard. TBH, none of my tokens, OCEAN, DIA, ADE, AIOZ... didn't do that lately, but I am not worried because I am trying to hold only solid tokens with real agendas and their time will come. In most cases, tokens that rise fast drop even faster.
I got interested in crypto payment projects (UTK) and oracle (LINK and DIA), at the beginning of my crypto journey. And I still think that their role is very important in the space and for adoption. Hope for greater exposure to these projects.
Good tips. Taking the responsibility for decisions is very important. I don't even think about blaming anyone, instead, I am focused on accumulating LINK DIA ARB & OCEAN. Anyway, I don't invest more than I can afford to lose.
I totally get you, man. I've also witnessed Thorswap's transition and it's had a huge impact on its price. I think DIA will be the next to go through this. They've been doing a lot to help grow the Arbitrum ecosystem and make their presence known on the chain.
This is a really interesting topic. I was just talking with a friend about how crypto payment solutions are starting to take off. Projects like DIA and LINK are integrating with more crypto payment and on/off ramp solutions too. It feels like we're still in the early stages of this space, in my opinion.
I think it isn't important if you are a small or big investor, the fact that DCAing is a rock-solid strategy is the same for all of us. My bags of OCEAN, FET, DIA, ETH... are getting bigger as much as I can afford and that's it. $10 or $10k, it's all the same to me...
>You Should DCA (Even If You're a Tiny Investor) I couldn't agree more! I've been doing so on a multitude of tokens since my early days in crypto, with early focus on BTC and ETH only, to some conviction bets these days, namely infrastructure with oracles (LINK and DIA) to L2s, mostly ARB. Overal the outcome have been great when it comes to accumulation. What I did wrong, was not DCA out too during the bull market. How I keep adding monthly a certain amount on my DCA strategy, I will also do the opposite when my bags double, taking profits monthly, accumulating cash/stables to invest on the following downturn
If BTC and ETH don't hold up, it's game over. But you know how it is with crypto, it's smart to buy in now 'cause these prices will be a steal in the long run. I'm really into LINK, MATIC, SOL, and DIA for a reason - they've got some amazing partnerships that have really proven themselves during the tough times.
So, it's not really about how long something has been around, but more about how many people are using it. The regular market is worth over 100 trillion dollars, while the crypto market is still just a little over 1 trillion. That's only 1%. But we believe that as cryptocurrencies and blockchain become more valuable, more people will start moving from the regular market to the crypto market. We'll also see shifts between different cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin used to make up 60% of the total market value, but now it's down to 48%. Other cryptocurrencies like ARB, MATIC, OP, DIA, LINK, Injective, and more will definitely gain a lot of value over time too.
The utility of the ARB token primarily revolves around governance voting at the moment, this could very well be a stepping stone towards more significant developments. Right now I'm using ARB the most. DIA has a program to support the development of the Arbitrum ecosystem through Oracle gas funding. I'm confident that we will see a price surge as the platform continues to expand.
Bitcoin will always move the market with or without ordinals. The ETF will be just another indirect demand factor, to get higher adoption! My top picks on the mentioned niches are: **2. GameFi/Blockchain Gaming** Sandbox (SAND) **3. AI & Big Data** \- Dia Data (DIA) **4. Layer 2 narrative -** Arbitrum (ARB) **5. DeFi** \- Dafi Protocol (DAFI) **6. SocialFi** \- Torum (XTM)
DIA is a great oracle, and it might become a strong competitor to Chainlink. They've done impressive work with blockchain data. I think new oracles like Supra might reach the same level of success with their unique bridgeless approach.
RWA Tokens have a huge potential! I always like to think about Real Estate as the pinnacle of RWA tokenizations. While a bit far and with an expected wall of regulation ahead, the right steps are being taken on the technical side, with top oracles like LINK and DIA making available tens of thousands of live NFT prices ready to be integrated in DeFi.
Nice thread. As for me, I got LINK really early, so I have a very nice profit since its ICO ROI is over 70x. There are some great bargains within Oracles below 0.5X like DIA and XYO. I like DOT, extremely undervalued, but I miss new quality crowdloans. LTC is one of the most used crypto for payments, so I believe it can be a great pick as well.
I'm engaging more with Liquid Staking, mainly rETH on Ethereum and stINJ on Injective. I belong to a community (DIA DAO) that compiled a nice list (Liquid Staking Map) of the most important LSTs. There are about 18 chains listed right now.
CFG is my favorite RWA project. Within DeFi, I believe that MakerDAO is the one that has advanced the most in RWA. I also like Oracles working to bring RWA information on chain like DIA. Gaming tokens are nice, but a lot has changed after the hype around AXS. AI Tokens are a great pick. I like FET, DAFI, and OCEAN. RNDR is algo a great pick.
I’ve been doing it using an app my buddy told me about that uses AI. Should I be worried? I’ve got nearly $1k in and I’m up to 2 trades a day for about $4 a day. It’s DIA so I figured it was low risk and Im enjoying returns.
Absolutely, NFTs are finding new uses all the time. They're being used in real estate, gaming, and even as collateral for loans as in the case of the DIA-integrated Zumer Protocol. There could be more undiscovered NFT ideas out there. Unfortunately, despite these advancements, we're still seeing a drop in NFT prices.
BTC rules, so most of my portfolio is based on it along with ETH. I like some alts like MATIC, DIA, AVAX, ARB, and FTM. There are some incredible altcoin projects, but they require a lot of effort and engagement.
Hard to say. Among the top 30, I'm focused on DOT, AVAX, UNI, and FTM. But I'm also holding low-cap projects (EQ, Polkadot parachain; DIA, Multi-chain Oracle; GLMR, another quality Polkadot parachain). And MOON! Of course.
TG bots are buzzing for sure. In Telegram sometimes the shilling about them is even annoying! When it comes to investing, I rather stick to overlooked, often undervalued niches, like oracles (LINK, DIA, NEST), NFTs & Metaverse (SAND, ENJ, UNQ). I tend to have better results on investing in value other than trend following strategies - that's why. When it comes to the bots, I haven't tried them yet, but it might be handy, specially for airdrop farming.
Absolutely, it doesn't always turn out that way. Greed often plays a role, driven by the desire to maximize returns with minimal investment. It's fueled by the numerous sensational stories of individuals making fortunes from small investments. I agree, luck is a factor. For me, I'm more inclined towards activities that generate passive income. With projects like Bankless and DIA DAOs, it's possible to achieve this. This way, you can earn and invest in credible projects gradually. But remember, this isn't financial advice. Everyone has their own strategy, and it's essential to stick with what works and discard what doesn't. It's an ongoing journey.
Of course, there is a lot of hype around it but isn't all about hype. I use a lot of AI, but I apply it to predict wind energy output. I believe that some stocks (e.g.: SMCI, OPRA, and NVID) have strong AI tools, but are being traded at crazy multiples. For crypto, I'm closer to RNDR, DIA, and OCEAN. I like what all of them are doing. It's all about separating the wheat from the chaff.
Moons and Donuts!!! I also think newer projects with utility will do better than older ones if we go by history. So in a category, I choose the newer and more undervalued competitor, if it's solid enough. Like DIA over LINK. Adeno over Helium. Whatever new strong meme comes up over Doge, Shib, Pepe. They usually have more upside i.e delivery more ROI without necessarily reaching the heights of the older one.
When a good project goes down without a reason (loss of fundamentals), then DCA is really king. I've been DCAing into API3, MATIC, DIA, and FTM recently. You really need $ to make $. I'm also trying to keep BTC and ETH at healthy levels and DCAing always.
My strategy is, I believe, the strategy of many who are not traders, but like me, they buy cheap and wait to sell more expensively. (Although mostly the reverse is the case, but we won't talk about that 😂). BTC, ETH 50%. Smaller MC coins are extra 30% for me, eg AIOZ, BUMP, FLM, OCEAN, ACH, UTK, DIA, CAKE. Surely some of them are your favorites, because they are all serious projects with high potential. I keep the other 20% in stablecoin for new projects that have yet to come out because that's where the biggest turnover is. My biggest focus is on FluidAI, it will be released in September, a top team behind it and a robust project, liquidity aggregator, signed a contract with one of the strongest AI companies. And of course, only long-term because I'm not a trader and I don't know how to do it well. And if anyone is, please investigate Bumper(BUMP). They have an innovative DeFi protocol ideal for traders where they save both time and money and a much easier way to make a profit. Tell me your strategies too, I would be happy to exchange opinions.
The majority of my portfolio is the duo BTC-ETH, but I also have AVAX, AAVE, DIA, DOT, DAFI, MATIC, and some others. There is no way to know for sure if we gonna make it in the next bull run. I just hold, follow my projects, engage with the community, and wait.
I boarded crypto with ETH, at its price of $30. :) At that point, I bought a mining rig and I mined around 10 tokens monthly. Later down the road, I got more rigs and I got a sum of around 250 ETH but I kept only 10 or so because I was selling to pay the electricity, bank loan for equipment, etc. Lesson learned, so later on I kept searching for solid projects with real agenda and team behind it. Now my portfolio consists of around 80% of BTC and ETH, and added some rock-solid alts like FET, OCEAN, DIA... This time I am not selling anything, at least before I reach x10 on my entry prices.
I'd comfortably say that I'm doing both! Stocks and even more Real Estate take me many, many hours of research before I invest into anything. Now the same is true to (some crypto) - I've been putting a lot of time to learn more about defi in general and oracles in particular, making me more comfortable investing in those (LINK and DIA mostly). When it comes to many crypto projects I have to admit I tend to gamble into those, without knowing much about them, if the trend is right I have made many punts (trying to reduce this number) which had all sort of outcomes, from rug pulls (GODZ), to great performances like SOL back in the days (don't hold any now) or to many stallers.
I think staying in ETH and BTC is all but gambling, mate. My portfolio is with these two tokens in majority, around 80%, and the rest is in a few solid alts, OCEAN, FLD, FET, DIA... My idea is to avoid adding new tokens every few days and focus on these solid ones I already found. Actually, the first new token I will add in a few days is ADE, Weaver Labs ticker. Next year we will probably see an enormous rise in the market because ETF approval and halving will come at the same time or very close to each other...
You're absolutely right. This is a moment to stay composed, reevaluate the situation, and consider strategic entry points or DCA into the market over time. I'm personally looking forward to taking advantage of this dip by acquiring more VRA, TOMO, DIA, and LINK tokens at these lower prices. It's a great opportunity to seize advantageous prices and observe how the market evolves.
I'm familiar with Ocean in the AI sector as well. I also hold DIA and FET, which are in the same category. When it comes to decentralized exchanges, UNI is my preferred choice. Investing in data oracles like LINK, Injective, and Trellor seems like a solid option too, in my opinion.
I always buy when I can... I think I'm ready for what awaits us. From my portfolio, BTC is definitely the strongest, followed by ETH. Those are my safe options. But I expect the biggest turnover on projects with low MC and high potential, such as ACH, OCEAN, BUMP (Bumper), DIA. Of the projects that have yet to come out, FluidAI seems the most interesting to me. EOS is also a dinosaur that should wake up. Your thoughts? Have you researched these projects?
Don't worry mate, this is just a short drop. In a few months, you will be happy that you bought it at 27k. :) I also keep DCAing in my bags, especially ETH and BTC, but also in alts, OCEAN, FET, DIA... Also, I am waiting for Weaver Labs ticker ADE to be released in pre-sale in 10 days from now. This one will be the first new token in my portfolio in 2023. :) Just chill and wait, that's the best way to make money in crypto.
As I understood, this drop happened because the Chinese Evergrande Group filed for bankruptcy in New York. I don't think these levels will stay for a long time, the market will recover fast. Anyway, my bag stands and I don't care much if the bull run starts in March or in November because all the tokens I hold for years, OCEAN, FET, DIA, CARD, FLD... will survive and make me solid gains for sure.
It's refreshing to come across a positive article about NFTs. Most recent discussions on NFTs have been bearish, but there's actually been substantial progress in the space for those who delve into thorough research. Several NFT projects have taken steps to integrate with data oracles such as DIA and Chainlink. For instance, Zummer protocol enables users to obtain loans using their NFTs, provided the NFT is recognized on the platform. This is just one example of how NFT platforms are pushing the boundaries. Personally, I have a bullish outlook on the NFT space.
The rise of the dollar led to the drop in these assets because they're tied to the dollar. It's a common occurrence. So, you're not alone in this situation. My holdings of BTC, ETH, DIA, FIL, OCEAN, and ALGO also took a hit, but I saw it as an opportunity to buy at lower prices. I don't anticipate this situation to become too extreme.
True 100%. If you just buy any new low MC you find on Twitter or any meme shitcoin, you will end up sleeping on a bench in the park. I think I didn't add any tokens to my portfolio for years. Hodling solid ones, OCEAN, DIA, FET, BTC, ETH, and will add ADE once it is listed. This will be the first new token on my portfolio in 2023. I set my selling targets and chilling until I reach them!
TBH, I think my portfolio structure is the best kind for these bearish times. I hodl around 80% BTC - ETH and the rest of my money is in solid tickers from projects that worked hard on development during the bear market, OCEAN, DIA, LINK, FET... If any of these alts explode during the bull run, which I believe will happen to all of them, I'll be happy, but the anchor of my portfolio, these blue chips will make me some decent profit for sure. Maybe not millions, but some x3 or x5 from my entry point for sure.
Because I'm not quite an expert at this point. Even if I were to have substantial holdings in cryptocurrencies, I wouldn't necessarily opt for the extravagant "crypto millionaire lifestyle" either. It's more about personal preferences. I've invested significantly in ARB, MATIC, DIA, LINK, and I'm confident that these investments will eventually pay off, regardless of any flashy lifestyle. Holding onto them tightly is my strategy.
>Imagine the ease and the rapidness of trade/transaction/verification one can do with RWA when real assets such as lands, building... I can't agree more with you! And I believe that day is closer rather than further as there are already thousands and thousands of NFTs with live prices on multiple outlets. DIA, a mid/small cap oracle already have live price feeds on over 18.000 assets. DeFi demands and oracles deliver! RWA is a big thing, which IMO is almost there in technical terms. I believe that logistics and curers for objects might be a little challenge and obviously that for real estate, the regulations in multiple jurisdictions will be the big challenge! Exciting times to live on without a doubt!
My plan is exclusively long-term. I am creating a portfolio that will be much stronger in the coming period. Many talk about some 100x, 1000x, but let's be realistic, it's really hard to do. My idea is to keep it safe, with a small fraction of risky meme projects that can unexpectedly and without reason jump very high. But, BTC, ETH the most (30-40%)... After them, projects that have been on the stage for a long time but are not in the foreground, such as OCEAN, DIA, EOS... Then new projects with great potential that are just coming out like FLD from FluidAI. And finally, a small stake (5%) in some kind of meme coin, something like roulette. And you?
I hope DeFi will overcome traditional finance but it seems to be a long path. Since it is an inevitable process I think it smart to be part of modern systems and follow their development. Concretely, through Oracle ecosystems ( LINK & DIA), one can find numerous DeFi projects which provide many benefits and innovative products to attract users. Let's see how it turns out.
I regret that I didn't take more crypto, and that I didn't take more new projects that were just coming out and made the biggest jumps and some were underestimated at the time. This time, I won't miss OCEAN, DIA, EOS, or the new ones coming out like FLD from FluidAI. Now I will be maximally ready for the next cycle. And you?
People will always talk, and many of them who are skeptics will invest later at much higher prices. My logic is this: 50% goes to BTC and ETH 30% goes to well-researched tokens, such as OCEAN, DIA, BUMP, ACH... The other 20% I am chasing new projects that have yet to come out, currently I only see FluidAl as promising, but I will investigate further. As far as I can see, a lot of projects are announced for September. And people, this is the promised branch, think wisely now and enjoy the rest of your life. Tell me your opinion too.
I keep my portfolio with 80% blue chips and the rest in solid alts, OCEAN, DIA, CARD, DFI, etc. and soon I plan to buy as much ADE as I can. There is no way to disconnect BTC from the alts. Its movement will always push bull or bear market, no matter how solid the alt is, it will fall down with BTC...
No doubt that the Shanghai upgrade for Ethereum transformed the staking landscape. I didn't know where to look, but DIA DAO contributors (me included) did a nice job compiling several LSTs on their Liquid Staking Map. stETH on Ethereum and stMATIC on Polygon are nice options from Lido (which has over 30% of all staked ETH).
If we talk about long-term investments, OCEAN, DIA and CAKE. BNB is also great, but I don't think it's a project for a big turnover because it's full of money. I think FluidAl will also do a good job, it will be released soon. And the BTC ETF can also happen, and there will be an explosion of money flowing into the market, then everyone would be in the profit whatever project you are in. What do you think?
I hodl 80% BTC and ETH combined, around 15% of solid alts like OCEAN, DIA, CARD... and with the rest, I gamble a bit... :) TBH, I don't expect to gain anything from these low MC unknown tokens, but if one hits it could make me more gains than all the rest. If it dies, I don't care much because I know blue chips will make me solid gains also...
Hodling BTC and ETH is like a must in my books, and I hodl several solid alts to try to hit the jackpot! In my portfolio, there is around 80% in these blue chips, and the rest is in OCEAN, DIA, FET, CARD... I don't buy meme coins and gamble with the rest of the P&D schemes...
Absolutely, I'm thrilled about Coinbase's significant achievements. It's also incredibly satisfying to witness DIA's rise as a prominent oracle integrated with Base. The team's dedication and the project's value have truly paid off in establishing such strong partnerships.
It's common for newcomers to experience this. Over time, I've shifted my focus from percentage gains to the actual usage and utility of the tokens. I'm holding BANK and DIA mainly for their utility rather than just their price. Even during market dips, I've continued to buy more of these tokens.
5% to 7% of my portfolio is on LINK. From Oracles, I also have DIA (available on Base as well) and API3. Even the fact of LINK being traded at over 60x ICO ROI isn't a problem for me. I'm bullish on Oracles in general.
Sure thing! If Bitcoin hits that high, it could lead to big price increases for other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ETH), LINK, ARB, DIA, and MATIC. Just remember, the crypto market can be really unpredictable and risky. While big gains are possible, there are many factors that can influence prices.
From all the options you mentioned, I used 1. Simple Stacking - (DCAing in BTC, ETH, OCEAN, DIA...) 2. Technology - (Following closely new tech in crypto and trying to ape in the most solid project I find. At the moment I am aping in Weaver Labs, the first one working on reshaping and improving telecom infrastructure.) 3. Miner or Validator - (Mined ETH for 5 years and now I stake it. I also participate in data farming with Ocean Protocol and staking ETH on Lido.) I must admit I am pretty satisfied with where am I now in comparison to the pre-crypto time and my strategy looks solid and healthy enough to stay with it. :)
Hmmm, one successful prediction doesn't make anyone infallible in the financial market. The sentiment that we are approaching the bottom and a new bull market is imminent is indeed prevalent. If this scenario unfolds as anticipated, we can expect BTC to experience a significant upward movement, with altcoins following suit gradually. I'm particularly optimistic about altcoins like Arbitrum, Matic, LINK, DIA, and XRP. The recent partnership between DIA and Osmosis Zone further enhances the potential of DIA. Overall, I share your bullish outlook.
Very well said, my friend. I have been in crypto for 8 years now and like all of us, I made some bad decisions in the beginning and learned that no one can help you if you screw yourself. These days I tend to avoid sending tokens without important reason, researching for days and weeks before I pick the next gem to ape in and my portfolio is almost the same for years. ETH, BTC, OCEAN, DIA, and I will add ADE tokens soon. I believe this is the pack I will be waiting for the next bull run with.
Hmm, that's noteworthy. I believe we might see more dumps in the coming days. Out of my watchlist, UNI took the biggest hit with a nearly 8% drop. DIA is down 1.4%, and LINK is down 3.30%, which I still think are great opportunities to buy.
Considering the bad events that happened last year, I can't say this year is that bad. Many of us expect an upside trend next year so let's take the opportunities that we can and wait patiently. I'm focused on getting altcoins cheap such as LINK OCEAN DIA & INJ, but I am running out of funds. But don't want to think about that lol.
It is always better to invest in strong foundation tokens. My bag consists of around 80% blue chips, ETH, and BTC, and the rest is in solid alts, OCEAN, DIA, DFI, NMR, etc. I will also add the ADE token to its pre-sale in a few days. I believe this is the pack I will hodl for years without adding a new token... I will probably only boost the amount on existing ones.
My strategy is to wait for a 3x return, then I withdraw 50% of what's there. At this point, I've taken out my initial investment plus some profits. I let the rest ride for as long as I think it can. I did this with PEPE, among others. But for projects I have more confidence in, like LINK, DIA and so on, I leave everything in for a 10x gain, if I see the potential.
It's possible that Twitter's rebrand has influenced Doge's surge in some way, though I could be wrong. But it's really great to see. What's even more interesting is DIA's surge over the past week. It's performed well even when other assets have fallen, and I think it's only a matter of time before we see a parabolic upward move.
You can try to win the lottery with shitcoins like Pepe, or you can start by researching solid projects and their tokens. We were all in your position once and we all dreamed about hitting x10000 token with a $20 investment, but TBH that's a fairytale. Someone, somewhere might hit it, but that's one in a million. I would suggest you to DYOR on several solid projects: Ocean Protocol, the first data marketplace for tokenizing and sharing data sets. Their token OCEAN offers several passive and active income options, and its one of the solid tokens I mentioned. DIA data, the one of the best Oracles projects with great potential in ROI. And the last one, if you want to be early, is the Weaver Labs. This is the first project oriented on Telecom infrastructure and its token isn't launched yet, so you are super early with it... That's my advice, but if you still want to gamble with ugly frogs memes, I wish you all the best. :D
If by crypto you mean on meme shitcoins, then yes. You can't expect x10000 ROI in solid projects, but these projects will be here in 10 or 20 years. I don't like to gamble and risk my money, so my bag is full of DIA, CARD, OCEAN, ETH, BTC, BNB... These tokens won't go x100 or more, but I expect them to grow in time steadily and safely. I will also invest in one more solid project I stumbled upon, the Weaver Labs and their ADE token. Weaver Labs is disrupting the telecom industry with its cryptocurrency token and I will ape in its pre-sale strongly. None of my tokens ever went to 0 and I plan to stay on this track. :D
Big wins indeed for XRP. I've also heard that many financial institutions will be integrating Ripple's XRP. Another one that I believe will gain a lot of trust, fundamentally, is DIA. I have no doubt we'll see a DIA surge, especially after seeing its partnerships on zero knowledge and Arbitrum. Fingers crossed.
Patience will always be the key. I have a concentrated bag of alts (UTK, AR, DIA, MATIC, FTM) followed mainly by BTC and ETH. Since the big ones represent almost 70% of my holdings, I'm having good returns this year, much higher than my stocks. I'm certain that you didn't invest too late, bro. We are all too early. Some tokens are considerably undervalued. It's a matter of time until crypto tech takes over the main industries for good.
About 5 to 6 years. I started because of the tech (Python, Solidity, Substrate, etc). I'm actually building my first smart contract with the help of DIA DAO (which I contribute on a daily basis) and some friends of mine are also building on Substrate (Polkadot and its parachains like Moonbeam and Acala - just a few examples). I had the opportunity to get with some great devs and jumped into many projects. Now I'm focusing on arrays, structs, hardhat, ether.js, web3.js, and so on. AI has changed the space a lot and I'm following this close.
Are they building on Polygon? I'm going through Immunity's tokenomics right now and it seems interesting. But I found the information that they are building on the Cardano Blockchain, even though there is a target raise of 100,000 USDC on Polygon. If they are also building on Polygon, then I believe that the devs will be able to leverage the DIA's Oracle Suite that is already available there. Do they have a Discord where I can get in touch with the devs and community?
FET OCEAN & MATIC are on my radar too. I have several areas on my list! LSD- LIDO & STADER are solid issuers. Oracles- LINK & DIA are quite affordable with huge potential. L2- ARB & CTSI I'm quite obsessed with DAFI lately because Hybrid Exchange is set to be launched soon. Let's see how it plays out.
