We’ve probably said something to the tune of “set it and forget it” for the past four years now. Unless you’re a professional Bitcoin and cryptocurrency trader, you’re likely playing with fire if you try to time the market and get in and out and back in again with the various coins.
So, here’s at least a little evidence that an approach like this *could* potentially work for your portfolio.
Let’s, as they say, go to the videotape, which, as you’ll see, shows a real highlight in the Balance Portfolio…with one of the coins up 245%.
That’s a Spicy Meatball
Background: as opposed to the BRED Portfolio, we created this one to take advantage of the potential for asymmetric gains with a couple of coins that have (in our opinion here at HQ) tremendous potential to pop.
Last month, as you can see in our most-recent post about this portfolio, we benefited from some nice price movement in Bitcoin itself; the largest holding in this hypothetical account. Bitcoin has been stagnant in the past month but OH WOW LOOK at $VET.
The basic idea: have the bulk — in this case, 1/2 — of your holdings in the two biggest coins, Bitcoin and Ethereum, and have most of the rest in coins that could have a pop. (The exception: $PAXG, which is there as a hedge.)
VeChain: An Asymmetric Jump
We follow quite a few investment newsletters and people who tweet like they know what they’re talking about. One theme that pretty much all of them follow is that the best way to make a mint is to make “asymmetric” bets and, hopefully, one of them pays off big time.
It’s not uncommon in the venture capital world, too: VC firms will have 25 portfolio companies with the hope that 1 out of the 25 has a 100,000% rise to make up for the 15 that fail and the 9 that are just moderately successful.
VeChain has the signs of a coin that COULD have an asymmetric rise and reach insane heights. It has the backing of corporate types, or, in their words, the solution is “driven by enterprise adoption.” That means things like this…
…and it also means the application is potentially used in a variety of other ways, like helping track carbon emissions or driving autonomous cars.
This MAY explain this particular coin’s rise: people who are looking for the next Bitcoin or the next Ethereum and fear they may be too late to the party will often start looking for coins that fit certain criteria — call it, partially, the “Robinhood effect” — like a sub-$0.01 price, which is where VET was earlier this year. (One of the newsletters was specifically recommending a certain coin that had a sub-penny price and corporate relationships late last year; deduction brought us to VeChain as a result.)
How to Get Involved?
We need to stress that we don’t provide investment advice, you should only invest what you can afford to lose, and we’re not responsible for wins or losses. We hope you have plenty of wins, though.
Two ways we’ve recommended and we’ll provide CLEARLY MARKED AFFILIATE LINKS HERE:
- Sign up for a Coinbase account. You can get a bonus with qualifying purchase and we’d get one, too. *Note that $VET is not available on Coinbase just yet. To get that one in particular, you’ll need to…
- Sign up for a Crypto.com account. The bonus is potentially richer but the qualifying purchases are larger, too.
