What led you to become involved in the crypto ecosystem?
- Long story short, I used to mine ±15.000 BTC in 2010, lost it all, and realized what a huge mistake I made only at the end of 2016.
- Once I understood how cryptocurrencies work, there were three main facts that made me invest in anything related to crypto & blockchain:
- – peer-to-peer, there is no middle man, you can be your own bank.
- – cryptocurrencies can not be controlled or shut down.
- – a fixed supply, you know how many coins are going to be created, minted or mined.
What’s your asset allocation strategy?
- Since 2017 I have been fully invested in cryptocurrencies. It is very risky, and I do not recommend it, your asset allocation strategy should reflect your goals and your risk tolerance.
What is your opinion on bitcoin? Is it still a good investment?
- I believe Bitcoin is still a good investment. In my opinion, it will continue to be the leading cryptocurrency, with time the market will get more mature and the volatility will flatten, hence it will be more desirable for all types of investors.
If you could hold only 3 crypto assets for the next 5 years, which would they be and why?
- Bitcoin, Cardano and Zcash.
- Bitcoin because it proved its reliance in time – Cardano because their approach is different, it is one of the most researched blockchains and they delivered all the features on their roadmap.
- Zcash because it is privacy driven, there will be a time when privacy coins will be very desired.
How do you see blockchain impacting the world moving forward?
- Blockchain will accelerate the world’s technological advancement, and it will make our life easier. I believe what we are witnessing now is part of the Digital Revolution, and it will be a huge leap in history. It will take a couple of years until we will figure out where and how to implement it in our daily lives.
What are your top 3 tips that you would give to an inexperienced crypto investor?
- 1. Do not start trading, 1% of the traders are profitable. Ignore the volatility and DCA.
- 2. DYOR and focus on something, it could be NFTs, Metaverse, Gaming, but don’t be all over the place.
- 3. Do not try to time the market, you can not perfectly buy at the bottom or sell at the top. DCA and just try not to lose money.
