How to build a crypto portfolio

When building a portfolio in trading, investors have a lot of factors they must consider before starting to trade.
Before we get started, a few basic rules should be in place:

The first rule of thumb is never to invest or trade any capital that you cannot afford to lose (don't borrow, this market 90% of newbies will lose before they learn the lesson.
Second, only about 2-5% of your total investment should be spent on cryptocurrencies because this market is very harsh. The rest of you should invest in safer areas that you can grasp.

Third, divide the capital into 10 times, each time you invest in coins you only use 1/10 only. Absolutely not see it increasing strongly, but put it all in and you will swing.
And finally, if you are new to cryptocurrency trading, you will want to start small ($ 50- $ 100 per transaction is more than enough) to get a feel for the market, the interface of buying and selling. moving.
Investors should have a certain understanding of the returns and risks, the rate of return and risk, the margin per trade, the time frame of each individual trade, the current market conditions. and the phase of the market cycle they are trading with.

Profits and risks

Profit - Risk basically measures how much your potential return is for every dollar you are willing to risk. Investors should carefully choose the best profit - potential risk transactions.

Rate of return and risk
The risk / return ratio measures the difference between an entry point and a stop loss (stop loss) and a sell or take profit. Comparing these two offers ratio of return to loss, or reward for risk.

The ideal traders should have the most favorable rate of return to risk when choosing a trade because we ideally want to be paid more for taking great risks in the market.

For example, traders should make twice the amount they want to risk. This gives them 2: 1 return-risk.

A 2: 1 risky return is considered normal, while a 4: 1 risk return is considered good. For example, a trader could risk $ 10 on a trade hoping to make $ 40 back with a 4: 1 risk-on rate.

Time frame
Investors can use different timeframes to achieve the best investment results. These timeframes are categorized by short, medium and long term.

Short-term framework
Short term trades usually take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Therefore, investors can take advantage of short-term movements in the market.
The returns and risks for short term trades are usually lower than medium or long term trades.
Short-term trading is considered more risky than medium or long term trading because individuals are more exposed to market volatility with smaller margins of error.
This type of trading suits traders because of its higher risk tolerance.

Medium term framework
Medium-term trading is less risky than short-term trading, and is based on transactions that take weeks to months to work. This type of trading is perfect for traders with moderate risk exposure and less time on their hands.
The risk reward for medium-term trading is usually lower than long-term trading, but higher than short-term trading.

Long term framework
Long-term trading is less risky than short- and medium-term trading, and helps traders align themselves with the current market trends to get the best results.
Usually long term transactions take 4 to 6 months. Long-term trading is suitable for transactions with a low level of risk tolerance and for investors with less time on hand.
The risk return for long term trade is usually higher than short term or medium term trade.

Margin trading
Margin trading (MARGIN), also known as leverage trading, is a form of transaction that uses borrowed capital to trade a larger amount of a particular asset. For example, if you have 1 Bitcoin on Binance, you can borrow up to 2 more Bitcoins and transact as if you have 3 Bitcoins.

However, if the profit is 3 times, the loss is 3 times. And not for the inexperienced in the crypto market.

Margin Calls
If margin trading goes in the wrong direction, a trader will be required to add funds to their account in order to avoid order liquidation. This is called a margin calls. If a trader is unable to provide additional funds to secure an order, it will be automatically closed, you lose all your money.

Using too high trading leverage is both profitable and risky. It can increase profits, but can also cause you to suffer from margin calls or liquidation during relatively high price movements.

Market conditions
Traders should have a complete understanding of the current market conditions before they start trading.

For example, the overall crypto market is bullish (bullish or bullish) or bearish at a time (bearish or bearish).

Man Dies on Mount Everest Over Crypto Currency?
ASKfm, the site that lets friends ask anonymous questions, decided to launch their own cryptocurrency. To celebrate the launch, they planned an elaborate promotional stunt involving four climbers and the highest mountain in the world. Theysent a team of three crypto enthusiasts on an expedition to climb Mount Everest. At the top, they would bury a small USB drive containing $50,000 worth of ASKT, their new cryptocurrency they have planned an Initial Coin Offering for. Why? They wanted to send their currency “to the moon.” The climbers reached the summit on May 14 and successfully buried the USB. In a Medium post, the company described the expedition and the intentions behind it. “While others try sophisticated marketing techniques, these guys went out there and put themselves right on top of the highest mountain on the planet. An elegant way to boast ideological superiority to every other crypto. A way quite strangely unexplored before. Even memes-wise, think about the closest starting point to reach the moon. It seems so obvious, yet no one has done it.” What the company failed to mention, however, was Lam Baby Sherpa: the Nepalese mountain guide who helped carry gear and lead these otherwise-inexperienced climbers to 29,000 feet. The sherpa, a veteran of three previous Everest climbs, was left behind by the group and is presumed to be dead. One of the climbers was reported as stating: “At the top of Everest the weather was very bad, and then we were coming down. We were going down to Camp 4, which is at about 7900m, and one Sherpa was dying. That’s all we know. He was behind us, so we don’t know what happened to him. We were going fast and the Sherpa wasn’t coming with us. He was coming behind so we didn’t see him.” Upon reaching Camp 4, one of the crypto climbers had developed altitude sickness. They descended to Camp 2, where they called for a helicopter evacuation. As for the $50,000 worth of cryptocurrency? There’s no word as to whether or not it’s been retrieved yet, but with climbing season in full swing and an average of 600 summits each season, it’s sure to turn up soon.
Cryptocurrencies Are Making It Impossible To Afford A Great Gaming PC
"This wasn’t entertainment, this was an investment." Let’s rewind the clock a little bit to the Autumn romance of 2013: Bitcoin is showing itself to be more than a passing fad and things are starting to feel real.2013 was the year that you could buy things with cryptocurrency with retailers like Newegg stepping in and giving the strange idea a special kind of legitimacy. 2013 was also the year that AMD made a desperate bid for market share at the high end of the gaming GPU market with the R9–290X The result was a rush on AMD GPUs as people desperate to get on the cryptocurrency bandwagon scrambled to find their piece of the pie, California gold rush style. The price of AMD GPUs soared as retailers marked the cards up significantly over MSRP, selling a product once targeted at PC Gaming enthusiasts to a new class of customer who was willing to reach into deeper pockets because this wasn’t entertainment, this was an investment. Eventually that bubble popped, but we're back in 2017/2018 and this bubble doesnt look like its popping soon. You have to remember that part of the appeal of cryptocurrency mining is that it was an ‘everyman’s’ chance to make some money. A little consumer hardware, your home computer crunching away while you were at work or sleeping… People want that dream of striking it, well, maybe rich, but if not rich, making money for doing effectively nothing other than watch the mining rig do its thing and not letting it catch fire. On that dream, the market has delivered and the GPU is once again king of a new generation of cryptocurrencies. Read the full piece here.
A Cryptocurrency Crash Course for Beginners
While I'm still pretty baffled by the world of cryptocurrency, this piece by the New York Times really laid it out in layman's terms. Hope it helps you out too! Basic Run Down: 1. Digital money that is bought and sold online 2. Doesn't go through traditional institutions like banks 3. Is not linked to any concrete substance like gold Example: Alice wants to buy a bike from Dan using Bitcoin. Alice logs into her Bitcoin wallet with a private Key (pin, series of numbers unique to her) Now usually, the money she's sending would first go to a bank who would record the money being moved and transfered, but with Bitcoin, there is no bank or middle man. Instead, her transaction is added to a public list of transactions called a Block. Every ten minutes a "Block" of transactions is added to the list of all other previous transactions, creating a Chain. A Blockchain. Now, in order to verify that the transaction was legitimate, without having a bank check it, the Block is sent into the Bitcoin network, where various network members are racing to finish a very hard math problem (more on that later) The one who finishes the math problem first gets to have their record of the transaction be known as the official record, the verified record. For their efforts, they are given Bitcoin for each transaction they verify. This action of verifying bitcoin is called Mining. Because so many people are mining, this is meant to ensure that no one computer will monopolize the market, like banks have done in the past. As for the math problem, the more computers that join the race to solve it, the harder the math problem is. This is why people are fighting for the fastest computers and huge servers to help them become first. Apparently, Bitcoin is set to be available for mining until there are 21,000,000 Bitcoin in circulation. Right now, that's set to happen in 2140...
