@OP, been here for about close to 2 years now and thanks 🙏🏿 for the bowl set up. QQ - based on trends and it seems trends have been fairly accurate...

1. When do you think there might be a tank?

2. How do you prep for it? Do you sell all your positions prior to greed or hold some?

I have always been hodler. So news doesn’t affect me much. I sold some earlier this summer to buy some nice rental property in Jacksonville - but the sell timing wasn’t impacted by news. I used to actively trade back in 2017-18, but it takes a lot of time and more often than not the returns weren’t that much better had I just held (ppl also forget about short term tax obligations). Yes there will be a market correction in 2022 for sure but i don’t think it’ll be that severe given the institutional cushion this time around.

like

I think I read that the BTC community started addressing some of the s/w issues (eg performance issues, etc) with some updates and new releases. IE, some of the issues that were addressed later by hard forks and ETH/XRP. Which made me happy.

Do you think it’s possible the BTC community can get to software quality par with some of their peers? More fundamentally do you think it would ever be possible to shift the basic proof of work process to something more, umm, sustainable?

(I’m a BTC HODler, with a relatively smaller XRP bag. And it’s now kinda bugging me about the energy consumption and other issues)

like

EA1, this was the reason I swapped about a meaningful BTC chunk to ETH in my early days - I just didn’t see any meaningful innovation / scope of use case on BTC, but rather a lot of insularity and toxic chatter. I think it’s a matter of time that BTC and ETH swap positions in terms of market size. Now I know I sound biased, but thought I share my genuine POV

OP, just wanted to say I have been thinking about buying crypto for years now but never pulled the trigger. But this post put me over the edge and I just bought my first crypto (eth) on coinbase. Thanks for all the advice.

Is a wallet necessary? I’ve just been keeping everything in CB Pro after buying.

SA1 I messed around looking into wallets a while back, but I understand CB has offline storage (vault) so as long as you are transferring from your CB wallet (checking acct) to your vault (savings), they are storing your holdings offline, in physically protected spaces, where they are not connected or hack able. This is also what XAPO started, and I think I read that CB literally pays XAPO for the vault service. I may be wrong, but that’s what I read.

I have 1k in eth right now, and 25k in btc. I’ve mainly been investing in the traditional market.
Is it too late for me to get involved?
Should I be investing in newer cryptos (SOL, ADA) or ETH?

like

Never too late if you’re in it for the long term. Also one big delta in traditional be crypto is the meaning of “diversification”. In traditional markets, it’s very evident as it’s cleanly cut by sector, size, and proven financial metrics. In crypto, it’s not as standardized so you’re really going after your gut feel in 99% of the “buzzy coins”. I would say invest 60-70% in a combination of BTC and ETH and throw the rest in well-researched newer projects. If you read about the next meme coin at Reddit or fishbowl, know you are already late and will be at a higher likelihood losing money.

Wait for the next major bear market that’ll change your perspective. The highs are euphoric but the lows are catastrophic. In Feb, 2018, crypto tanked 90% and ETH went from a high of $1400 to a low of $70 in a span of 2 months - I was very glad to see my boring stock portfolio then 😌

My thoughts exactly. In the process of moving more of my investments towards crypto and ETH appears like a clear front runner because of this. Hard to make sense of the current crypto market, over speculation and hype are doing some wild things. Appreciate the response and happy thanksgiving

M1, if you’re in all cash, I would take 75% of it and put it in VOO or VTI - just open a Schwab or vanguard account. Take the rest and open a coinbase account (use coinbase pro when u get signed in etc) and then buy 75% eth and 25% btc. Godspeed. For someone who has all liquid, I wouldn’t advise to put it all in crypto
