My strategy have been decently simple on the way up or down I tend to stick to my guns and DCA into my favorite projects on a diversified matter with a slight bias towards oracles like LINK and DIA. Most of my holdings are still red due to the bear market we live on but I'm really glad to have projects on the green such as BTC, ETH and URUS
If the liquidity tap runs dry is always though so to deal with, hence the risk is high! But there's much more than this to DeFi, like the synthetic staking of DAFI or using economies of scale for lower trading fees on URUS
For the ease of use and convenience, I believe that Binance is a solid choice. ​ 'Not your keys, not your crypto' might make you consider something like trustwallet as a solid alternative. With embeded staking ​ Metamask is also a great alternative, specially if one's portfolio is concentrated on a couple of ecosystems. Also a great way to stake directly into the projects you are more involved with like I do with URUS and LINK and expect to do the same with some upcoming staking on DIA
You have some pretty decent points which I learnt the hard way with great "paper" profits during the bull run, thanks to the "HODLer" mindset & practice, namely on small caps like URUS, QTZ and GODZ, but a mix of the "HODLer" mindset and greed made me stick to my guns until deep red zone... A few exceptions like SAND and ETH where I actually took some profits balanced the boat a bit... On the flip side, trading is extremely difficult and a full time job on it-s own, in order to do it reliably and consistently over the time, and that-s where the "HODLer" mentality comes in and wins, because no one can consistently pick tops and bottoms, and trading is a complex venture. If you DCA into BTC as I did since 2018n with purchases on the 6k level but also above 60k level, never got my BTC bags on the red zone. Both strategies are valid, but there-s no solution that fits all
Crypto trading is pretty difficult and IMO a no no for beginners! Staking is nice, easy, low risk and hands off investment! This days on platforms like binance or kucoin one can stake hundreds of coins smoothly ranging from top 10 coins like BNB to smaller ones like ALICE. And as one gets more confident and want to dig deeper into the crypto space, staking can be done directly with the protocols like UNQ or URUS which might not be listed. Trading is another whole bull game... I don't say it's impossible to make money with it consistently, but it's extremely though!
DCA is the safest approach! Surely the not the most profitable but it's almost for sure profitable on the long term, special if there's a bias towards large caps!! My take is about 60% between BTC and ETH, 20% among large caps (DOT, ADA, XTZ, etc) and 10% among small caps (DIA, URUS, QTZ, etc). The remaining 10% I like to keep in stablecoins in case of a major dip!
I like to see mine as decently diversified, but I can't very well say the percentages because a good chunk is in real estate, which should account for about 50%. The remaining 50% should be like: 10% cash or similar (I include bonds here) 20% stocks - mostly global funds with monthly rebalancing and a few individual conviction bets specially gold/silver miners like McEwen Mining or Polymetal 20% in crypto which I manage my self with a clear bias towards large caps with around 60% into BTC and ETH, 20% large caps like DOT and ADA, 10% small caps like DIA and URUS and 10% into stablecoins (which migh be considered as cash, but I really tend to use this funds to buy more than to engage in defi activity)
Good to listen, on in this case read someone sensible to the situation, not with over dramatic BTC to ZERO or the bull is back at full steam, lets buy anything and easily make 100x... I'm not all in, but I'm not stopping my purchases, nor selling! Bought ETH under 300 and also bought it way over 3k and even at 1k I was on profit! This is the power of DCA! Now I'm following the same strategy hoping that on the next bear market I'll have tokens like DOT, KSM, QTZ, URUS that I'm buying now on the green!
I believe it's the safest way to profit from crypto on the long run, as an average entry price is safer than picking a time to go all in. It's all about averaging! Might not get the best entry, but certainly won't be the worst! The challenge is to take profits at decent times... that's what I'm working on and that I hope to apply specially on my low caps like DAFI and URUS, because I failed to do it with ETH back in the days, but I don't worry so much about it because it's one of the coins I aim to keep for the very loooong time alongside Bitcoin!
Interesting list, but already know something about all of them except QTUM which I plan to look into! I could easily add a few projects there such as DAFI (rewarding system and inflation controlling features) URUS (Crypto Bloomberg) or Unique Network (Next generation of NFTs)
It's nice to see the willingness to do so, but in two years so much can happen from a WW3 to a greater depression! Plus, 2 years in crypto is close to an eternity! I look for the long term on my DCA strategies but with close monitoring! I've been DCAing into SOL for a while but even at a loss decided to get rid of it: enough is enough! I moved some of it into DAFI to benefit from it's growing staking rewards and to URUS to accumulate, and most of it got into ADA!
I believe that DCA is like democracy: it's the worst regime (strategy) except all others! - Churchill on Crypto! ahaha I'm on the DCA team with greater focus on the big coins like BTC and ETH with over 50% of my DCA allocations finding my way down with about 30% into large caps like DOT, ADA and BNB (not SOL!!!) and finally 10-15% into small caps like DAFI and URUS
In hindsight it's easy! UST costed me a fortune, but at the time looked solid legit! I made the most money with ETH so far! There are projects like UNQ or URUS on which I expect a lot, because I actually believe in them, but just the future would be able to prove me right or wrong... Regarding your experience with VET, I feel the same with a little edge. I did a lot of research and it's price action have been a disgrace, but I still believe in it! It's very difficult to value a token because there are no profits to take into account... in the end of the day everything is almost purely hype based..
I believe that there are solid gems out there, and I like to think that picks like URUS, DAFI and JOE are solid choices on the DeFi niche, that will pay off hard on the next bull season, but just the future can confirm or deny our choices!
Solid pump indeed and shortening it's gap to BTC! I'm very curious if this is a reason to trigger an alt season at least for ETH tokens which I hold a few, namely ENJIN and LINK! But this migh also be the start of a much broader pump which I hope to throw to green my microcap investments in QTZ, URUS and DAFI!
It's all about panicking and selling your bags at an huge loss following the heard or sticking to your guns, HODL and even more buy the dip and use F&G as a contrarian indicator! I'm buying into stuff I believe in from the big boys like BTC and ETH to smaller solid stuff liek URUS or DAFI. I guess I have a bit of a DeFi bias...
Bottom we might already have reached! I don't think it will go much down from where we are... if it's going to go down at all is a good question! Either way I'm already buying some solid DeFi coins such as AAVE, DAFI, URUS and CRV!
My take is fairly simple: \-Diversify in size - BTC and URUS \-Diversify in niche - ENJIN and DAFI \-Diversify in chain - QTZ and DIA Look for project with solid use case (sorry meme crew) and buy them in regular intervals: monthly/weekly
That's the good old max: not your keys, not your crypto! Convenience is good as it's centralised perks, but we are handling control which is no different from regular banking and centralised systems! The problem if that for example Ledger (the one I got) doesn't allow many small cap tokens with more speculative and or trading potential such as (QTZ, DIA, DAFI, URUS, XTZ, etc), but for the big boys, namely BTC it's a must and it's where I store 70% of my crypto!
I'm done with selling! I'm actually buying now! The price can go down? Yes! Still carry on buying is the way to go with DCA into our favourite projects with long term prospects! ETH, DOT, DAFI, XTZ, LINK and URUS ticks all the boxes on a diversified way. Hope to get well on the other side of this bear market!
I believe that there is still more downside potential, celcius is another great systemic risk Certainly a lot of projects will fail and wont come back at the end of the bear market and LUNA was a great example showing that don't even a top10 project is out of risk! I'm just speculating about when will we be back to ATH, but I'd say there will be a long crypto winter that can last a couple of years! Meanwhile I believe it's the best time to learn and study properly into solid projects to invest and DCA into (I have a few under my radar like DAFI, URUS and UNQ) as on bear markets we have time to do all of this without being afraid of a pump on the next 5 minutes! The only good thing bear markets have is kicking the FOMO out of the system!
I am glad for the pills clarification, already had a handful of them while reading your post! Ahaha I am not panicking, sadly lI didn’t took as many profits as I should but I am in peace with it even though a lot of projects are 50% underwater on my portfolio! My take is to keep my DCA strategy into my favourite projects and taking advantage of the current prices. If it dips further I’ll get further ETH DIA URUS & friends. If it carry on going up I’ll do exactly the same, and that’s the magic of DCA!
True diversification should be the path chosen more often than not! I could tell you million projects that I find interesting or even I'm invested in, but I'l pick a very few which in my opinion are worth checking! 1. DAFI - an synthetic derivative protocol with the aim of fixing other project's poor tokenomic through it's synthetic staking 2. URUS - a defi protocol which uses economies of scale to save it's users fees. Aims to be the crypto Bloomberg 3. Polkadot - a very strong L1 and L0 protocol, solid and sustainable which IMO is really undervalued
Well it’s a lot due to the hype around projects, yeah I’m talking to you memes, but it’s not just on the crypto market the stocks aren’t different! Or even the going and coming Ponzi schemes with appealing narratives in real life! This said there are a LOT of interesting stuff happening on the space starting with Bitcoin! A lot of smart contract protocols like ETereum Polkadot Cardano that are really interesting! And even solid smaller stuff like DIA (oracle with transparent data feeds) or URUS (a defi platform which can save users a lot of fees through the use of economies of scale) that should get way more recognition then all the Shibas and Doges around… Long story short, it’s better to make the most of the market than trying to change it, because the problem isn’t crypto it’s the world, it’s the people!
Can't stop noticing LUNA there... which is funny now... even for me that lost a good chunk on UST (didn't have any LUNA)! I'd add a few tokens there like URUS (defi), DIA & BAND (oracles), Unique Network & WAX (NFT) SAND & MANA (metaverse) but of course those are mostly small caps and if you would consider all the little suggestion your list would be infinite! Would be interesting to compile a list with the % of each answer for relevance
It's never different this time! And we can't know, NEVER, what's going to make it and what will not, and the safest way I know to protect myself and even profit along the way is simple: taking profits! Easier said then done indeed! But i'll make the most to make sure the (IMO) great projects I'm buying now like WAX, Unique Network, DIA, ChainLink, URUS, Polkadot, etc will grow and I'll take profits along the way. If they keep booming, great! If not... I already took out my profits!
I believe that a good plan has to have a strong DCA component to average down your entries into the market! I'm doing it myself with about 3 projects weekly with at least twice a month reviews! There are great value in ETH, DIA and URUS. My most recent purchases! Not letting assets idle is an important aproach also! Defi, staking whatever you can do, with proper research to don't increase the risk (yes I'm talking defi mostly) too much!
The Aurox terminal with it's Aurox indicator might help you with that. It's free to use and combines multiple indicators into a single buy or sell indicator. It actually triggered a sell for Luna a day or two before the crash. Just look URUS and the Aurox token up.
It’s as simple as: higher the risk, higher the reward! My take is be risk on with a diversification strategy! On the crypto side I got some stable coin farms on Kalmar going on with about 30% of my portfolio. I’m not getting rid of them, instead I’m drip feeding a DCA strategy into my favourite coins (due to the high risk) with a bias to the large caps with focus on BTC and ETH! But also smaller projects in NFTs like WAX and QTZ, defi like URUS and ACA. I know the risk I high, but being in cash is also high, specially with the ongoing inflation numbers…
The risk is always there and it's impossible to know who sinks and who swims... This said, I believe that the hunt for gems should go on, as the best entries are in this times, but to avoid excessive risk, IMO just smaller amounts should be invested in those coins and stick the chunk of our pot on BTC, ETH and stablecoins. A few large caps are obviously a good call, as here the key is diversification! I'm DCAing into QTZ, URUS and KALM as I believe in those projects, but I just have 10% of my pot on micro caps.
I rode last bull market well on the way up with great buys ranging from blue chips to some shits I bought that made me blue! If you know what I mean... The lesson was simple: take profits! I missed taking profits in big projects like DOT XTZ BNB IOTA VET and now I'm on slight profit on average with a fez still underwater, but the worse happened on micro caps like BATH GODZ XTM etc. I won't let that happen to me again neither on the big ones I hold now like DOT and BNB, neither on the small ones like URUS and QTZ!
I believe is broad diversification in and out of crypto both in assets and in income generators! Let’s start with the income generators: A job (or more) - I have 2 Rental property - I have 1, and hopefully on the next crypto bull market I’ll get another one Divididend paying stocks - also diversified, have a few, because have been focusing more in crypto lately Bank investments - from saving accounts to bonds - also have a few but the bad returns made me move heavier into defi. Staking - I stake everything I can! Being BTC one of the few exceptions Defi - here I mostly provide mostly liquidity into stablecoin pools on pancake swap using kalmy.app Then in terms of a assets: Real estate Stocks - diversified portfolio, I have a world fund with trend following strategies to take care of my leg work Crypto - here I tend do diversify something like: 50% between BTC and ETH 30% in stables 15% in large caps like DOT, BNB, ADA, etc 5% in micro caps like URUS, UNQ, QTZ, etc Gold & cash - I’d say between those 2, 10% of the broad portfolio should be the bare minimum
I am a believer of true diversification to secure a lower risk towards the downside and keeping a good variety of vectors or growth to the upside. I’ll share what I try to do with my portfolio (sometimes needs rebalancing): 50% of allocation on super large caps, and those are Bitcoin and Ethereum. The allocation between those I try to keep 60BTC/40ETH, but whatever numbers you choose between them IMO should be fine. I would have it yielding the maximum we can in one of several platforms like crypto.com yield.app celcius blockfi nexo, etc (the more money we have invested the more the diversification would matter) Sort of 5-10% on this assets are easily reachable with those platforms. This is the core and long term core of the portfolio 30% of your assets in stablecoins powered by DeFi on one of the protocols mentioned above and diversified between a few of them as well. For the brave and knowledgeable ones yield farming of stablecoins could be a good option with the ones like Kalmy.app or beefy finance. This part of the portfolios is where is the safe net which will buy the big dips! Big is 20%+ dips IMO. Once a dip is bought, eventually profits have to been taken to rebalance the portfolio and keep some cash available on the right proportions 10% allocation should be on large cap projects like Solana, Polkadot, Cosmos, Cardano, BSC, Tezos, etc and as possible locked in long term staking to max out the staking rewards. I use Binance for ease of use and plenty of assets under the same roof for convenience, but clearly I could and should have them on my own wallets and staking them there… always room to improve! 10% (could be a bit more or less depending on your risk appetite) should be invested in early projects if you have the time, will and can sleep at night with long vesting periods and or high fluctuations in prices. Here is where a bit of fun and subjectivity comes into place. I like serious long term projects with good prospects ideally following a trend, like Unique Network, RMRK, URUS, etc. A brief note on memecoins which I personally just want distance from, as I see them more often than not as pump & dump schemes, because besides the possible huge gains, it's ultra risky. Sorry if it got to long, but it’s how I would invest anything above 10k! TL:DR 25% BTC 25% ETH 30% CASH 10% Large caps 10% micro caps
URUS from Aurox is a hidden gem. Did a nice run last year, pulled back to a great buy in spot, and now revving up again with some great developments coming very soon. Also soon to be one of the first crypto token companies to be listed on Nasdaq, and will cross-chain between DEX's, CEX's and Stocks.
Question for all of you responding to this post saying "don't touch it": OP said this was sent to his **Coinbase account**. What difference does it make if he touches it? I'm sure the URUS has already been swept from the Ethereum address into one of Coinbase's treasury accounts, and if it hasn't yet, it will be when OP sells it. In either case, the most that de-anonymization could reveal is that the address belongs to Coinbase. So what could an attacker possibly learn from dusting *this* address? What's the risk to OP in selling this dust?
Great thread calling for caution! No need to panic, no need to FOMO! Have a plan and stick to it! That's the best advice I can give to anyone! Crypto grows more when people use their brains instead of their emotions! My plan is mainly through real diversification, like: 50% of assets on super large caps, and those are Bitcoin and Ethereum. Since the assets are idle, and the goal is long term, I would have them yielding the maximum we can in one of several platforms like crypto.com yield.app celcius nexo, etc. This is the core and long term core of the portfolio 30% of assets in stablecoins powered by DeFi on one of the protocols mentioned above. This is the pot of money where profit taking would go, and where the money will come to buy the dips! 10% of your assets should be on large cap projects like Polkadot, Cosmos, Cardano, BNB, ATOM, etc and as possible locked in long term staking contracts to get the maximum returns on those idle assets! 10% are aimed at early projects (if you have the time and the will, it could be a great fun activity & extremely rewarding) I like serious long term projects with good prospects! Ones like Unique Network, RMRK, URUS, ATLAS and Ocean protocol are a few of the projects I'm investigating/invested
The influencers are the kings of FOMO and FUD! What's to learn here? DYOR, think with your own head, thread carefully! You name it! Personally I thank influencers as a gateway to get me introduced and get my head around crypto, but that's it! There are a few good ones, of course, but there is so much rubbish around with the to the moon, predictions, aping, etc! This days I'm focus on spends some time daily actively looking for gems! I had great experiences with huge gains with URUS of example, and huge losses with GODZ, now looking forward to Unique Network public sale! There is everything and I can and I miss my forecasts and predictions even actively dedicating myself to this! My point is thinking with my own head and be critical about the outcomes and trying to improve! Aping into whatever an influencer tells you to do is a bit of gamble! I'm not a gambler, for the same reason I skip all meme coins...
Very nice and empowering thread! Something rare this days! I agree with most of it, have made my mistakes, some expensive some not that much, lost countless hours getting my head around all sort of crypto projects and after almost 3 years the outcome is definitely positive, i did about 5-6x in this time! Very far from all the crazy lambo moonshots around but in the end i'm happy with it and proud to be honest! Next year there i have a few objectives I would like to achieve! Growing my portfolio at very least 10% Looking forward to spend more time exploring defi in general, just started a couple of month ago with yield.app and I'm amazed with the possibilities in the space! Maybe my biggest goal is actively spend 1-2h per day looking for new gems on early days. I have been doing it on and off for about an year not and found great projects like URUS token which I got great returns even with a small investment and high eth fees! And I had bad experiences with GODZ where I lost like 75% of my investment… still holding with a bit of hope with its game new updates. I’m looking forward now for Unique Network which I have been following for over 2 month… Experiences for all tastes: gains, losses and the unknown Long story short my biggest new year crypto resolution is to study and get to know the crypto better, understand it better in order to be able to take chances more informed looking for better returns. This said... WAGMI
There are so much to say! I'm bullish/invested on so many projects... i'll try to point out just a few top ones! On DeFi projects: 1.I believe [Yield.app](https://Yield.app) is a great entry point to the defi world with great APYs and super easy and cheap to use (low fees) 2. URUS token/getAurox aims so high and just had a massive dip, I bough it on early days, 5x less than the current price and just topped up! It will be the crypto Bloomberg! On Smart-contract projects: 1. ADA/Cardano I agree with your analysis, and it dipped so low! I see it as a great entry opportunity! 2. DOT/Polkadot the whole cross chain narrative on substrate is just too big to be ignored! 2.1 Polkadot family, where I include smaller projects on it like Unique Network (NFTs) Clover Finance (DeFi) and Kusama, the polkadot "testnet" General. 1. Can't stop accumulating Bitcoin! Might and probably will underperform all the others but I see it as the anchor of every portfolio!
I have a few! Get a growth of 10%+ of my whole portfolio is the bare minimum goal from defi and staking yields plus capital gains plus DCA. Looking forward to spend more time exploring defi, just started a couple of month ago with yield.app which is a great point of entry with great yields and super easy to use. But I actually want to get to learn defi in a deeper level and being able to do the whole process my self and hunt the best farms for too yields with a small portion of my portfolio (I’m quite conservative) Maybe my biggest goal is actively spend 1-2h per day looking for new gems. I have been doing it intermittently for about an year not and found great projects like URUS token which I got great returns even with a small investment and high eth fees! And I had bad experiences with GODZ where I lost like 70% of my investment… still holding with a bit of hope with its game new updates. I’m looking forward now for Unique Network which I have been following for over 2 month… Long story short my biggest new year crypto resolution is to study and get to know the crypto better, understand it better in order to be able to take chances more informed looking for better returns
For his defense: the year haven't finished yet! This said, I'm not a fan of moon boys and even less fan of him to be honest! I just have to thank the moon boys for getting me on board with crypto! I guess that's their main job, to promote and bring crypto to the masses! Apart from that they are full of rubbish IMO. I started having better and better results on my crypto investing as soon as I stop listening to them! And to be honest I tried a bit of everything, from swing trading to day tradings, early projects, defi, holding staking, etc etc I don't consider myself a genius, or even a great investor, but for the last 3 years I have been able to double my stack every year with a mix of different strategies. Currently I believe the best option is to have most of my crypto invested in large caps like BTC ETH ADA DOT BNB and earning staking rewards on ADA DOT XTZ BNB etc and getting good yields on BTC ETH and stable coins on yield app. That's for 80-90% of my stack. The remaining 10-20% are to be invested in great promising projects with a strong use case on it's early stages looking for a 10-20x maybe more, but with the risk of losing the investment, that's why the relatively small allocation. I had great success with tokens like URUS and lost a lot of money with tokens like WeYu. Now i'm looking for Unique Network as my top micro cap investment. TL:DR Thank the moonboys from bringing you to crypto, but then sort out your plan and ditch the moonboy noise
My best experience was with URUS, I got in on the first days at around 13$ and it's now close to 200$, and had been over 270$. Never sold neither plan to do it anytime soon. I was following the project even before the launch and I deeply believe in on the long run! Currently looking for a great cross chain NFT projects which will lower massively the barriers of entry to new players and also will up the programmability and customizability of NFTS. It's super early stages and there is no token yet also... I won't shill, but I also deeply believe in it for the long run!
The problem is blindingly following the indicator. The Aurox team them selves even say the indicator is NOT to be used as a buy/sell signal. If your are trying to buy/sell strictly based on the indicator, you WILL lose. It's a great piece of the puzzle, but don't follow it without looking at the rest of whats going on.. For the record, I'm not trying to bash the URUS. I've been in AUROX for quite a while... Its great. I rode the Aurox URUS token with a good bag to a 1800% increase this year, culminating last week w/ Georgi at the conference. The team is doing great things, just don't trade blindly with their tools.
My browsing of their token info makes it seem like it’s early. Especially since they’re featured by CMC right now. Usually that makes coins take off right away. Any idea why the market cap is so low right now or am I actually looking at a project that I’m considering early? Also I think people are daunted by the couple hundred dollar price per token before seeing that it has a max supply of 1 million URUS.
My best performing coin is $URUS (Aurox). I’m up 24x now, which is partially because I got in early- but the trajectory of growth has been so damn consistent, it’s now paying more than my daily wage. It’s tied to a new crypto trading platform and the team behind it are so communicative and proactive with the community. I’ve recommended it to friends which I haven’t with my other less reliable coins. Obviously things change, but look at the chart!
