I'm not tapping yet.  2/3 of my money is in ETH right now.  I've been buying small bits of TRX as it continues to plunge.  It had a quick 21% dip vs ETH earlier that I missed b/c I was working on homework.  Oh well

Start by buying Bitcoin before you touch any alt unless you plan to buy the alt and trade for a 100% plus profit quick to buy Bitcoin.

 

Always start your portfolio with BITCOIN!!!!

 

At the time of this call BTC was 18,022 today 14,000 so you would have lost -22% on investment. lol.

tbh, most crypto coins are either way overpriced right now or already at 'fair' value.....short term run up is over....take some profits and keep some for long term hold just incase.

idk man...i think we are early still...remember, multiple major exchanges closed themselves to new signups b/c their sites couldn't handle the volume....I think there is still time to get in now and see major gains, especially once exchanges allow new signups....but taking out some "initial investment" is always a good idea.

That was a unfortunate misstep by exchanges not being able to keep up with demand....I think we could have seen much bigger gains...who knows if that loss of momentum can be recouped....I really dont think you will see the massive gains in 2018 vs 2017 across the board...from here on out I ony see big gains for  new coins or coins that can actually produce actuall progress towards making money.

yeah i'm currently focusing on coins that bring real-world solutions (mod/wabi/amb) and taking some fliers on coins like ETN/QSP/LEND/BAT

That sounds like a good idea. In addition to the coins focusing on logistics I was thinking of putting a little on one of these coins for exchanges(Ie. COSS) because with all this trading they are making money I would imagine but not sure how that would benefit the coin the represent....and there is always the risk they get hacked and go bankrupt overnight lol.

Bear market bro...take profits where possible or leave whatever on the table and think long term....short term this market will be corrections where coins were overpriced(IE ripple, tron) and sideways movement where coins are already priced accordingly.

CMC ditched Korean exchanges, seems to have fooled people in to thinking that market cap just vanished.

Just makes me chuckle when 'investors' say crypto is the future but you have 'smart money' showing their true colors in these actions.

 

Also like I said im willing to bet that BTC will hit around 8-10k range before we see it hit >20K. If I get this prediction right Im moving myself up like 5 slots in our board ranking.

everything i'm reading is saying tron is ready to make a hard run up....they are making a lot of partnerships, just opened or is about to open a USA office which could bring further US connections....hoping to see a big run based on these new deals

i'm not sure i understand...the guy made a ton of money on crypto (supposedly), and bought a house with the only option he had...not only that, but USD value declines, crypto is rising exponentially, why would anyone WANT to use their crypto at the moment?

 

What's smart money have to do with this?

I just laugh at the hipocresy in some traders/investors vs the ideologies they are pumping to the masses...if it is going up exponentially and its the future...why cash out and invest in tangible assets? Which I think is a brilliant move btw.

i guess I just view it as a guy wanted to buy a mansion...not necessarily an investment, but you know even a guy thinks crypto is the future, i'm not really gonna fault him for diversifying...those principles don't really disappear just b/c you believe something is the future.

If they guy knew well enough to put thousands in to TRON while it was worth fractions of a penny then Im willing to bet this is not true. lol

tbh with the volatility in coins its prob negligible gains if you compare...but I guess if you are long term holding a particular coin over time it could give decent interest I guess. I'm gonna try it with one coin I have and report back to the board at some point.
