:thought_balloon: Personal Finance - Crypto Currencies Portfolio

- 2 mins

As the market for cryptocurrencies matures, Crypto Currencies should be part of one’s portfolio. I get that investing in cryptocurrency can be a volatile ride, but the basic principles of asset allocation and diversification still can be used to build a solid crypto portfolio.

Investing in Crypto Currencies is a lot like investing in Stocks. There are hundreds of coins/projects to pick and choose from. Make Crypto Currencies around 5%-10% of overall portfolio allocation.

Of that 5%-10%, use a suitable asset allocation & start investing.

Proposed sample allocation

Crypto Allocation %
BTC 30.00%
ETH 20.00%
ALTCOINs 35.00%
USD 8.00%
Stable Coins
Total 100.00%

Keep USD and Stable Coins for buying the dip or opportunities

A critical difference between crypto trading and investing is the time frame. Cryptocurrency investing is typically a long-term strategy. Cryptocurrency trading is a short-term strategy. Understand the difference between Trading and Investing & find out which camp you belong to.

The cryptocurrency market is still in its infancy stages and is in a constant state of evolution. It would be wise for you to only invest money that you’re prepared to lose. But don’t get scared at the sight of the word lose. As I said earlier focus on asset allocation and start with a small percentage to test your toes and find out which camp you belong to.
