#BTC & #ETH are down.

You need to take profits in #crypto so you can buy dips like this.

This year i made big gains on $GALA , $SOL & #Polygon but i always took profits & managed risk

Here is a simple 🧵 on how i do it 👇

Retweet + share + follow if you found it useful 🤝 Image
1/ UPDATE

A few people asked me to revisit this topic & had a couple of questions around my approach. So i hope you find it useful/ more detailed.

Any more Qs? Please comment at the bottom of the thread 👍
2/ PORTFOLIO - PT1

Whilst i made big gains on a number of riskier plays like $MANA $SAND $GALA & other #altcoins many of them are now down from all time highs.

However i am not worried because i de-risked myself and always took profits along the way. ImageImage
3/ PORTFOLIO - PT2

When i take profits i always aim to layer into blue chips coins and have the following portfolio split:

#bitcoin -40%
#etherum - 20%
#solana - 20%
#polygon - 5%
riskier #altcoins - 15% Image
4/PORTFOLIO - PT3

My hypothesis here is:
- #bitcoin is the most "stable" store of value & want to stack as many as possible.
-$ETH & $SOL/#MATIC IMO will be the dominent L1s
-IF $ETH does win it will be via $matic
5/ PORTFLIO - PT3

Outside of my portfolio i also have an additional 20% in stablecoin

SO if your total portfolio was $1M
You should have $200k in stablecoins ready to buy dips.
6/ PORTFOLIO - PT4

Others may have lots of #metaverse & #NFT plays, but i will never forget in the last bear market most went to zero.

I also think most #metaverse plays like $GALA & $SAND are massively overvalued right now.See the image below Image
7/ PORTFOLIO - PT5

I DO think projects like $GALA have huge future potential, but i would never aim to buy at the top.

Bigger money will be made by buying projects like that in the deepest of bear markets.

Remember: the price you buy is more important than price you sell.
8/ TAKING PROFITS

The trick is to always take profits & de risk on projects like $GALA & other alts.

But what is the best way to take profits? I tried many different approaches & i will now share with you my preferred approach.

This is what works for me, others my disagree.
9/ TAKING PROFITS - PT2

The key factor when taking profits is balancing risk/with having enough money left in to compound & make big gains.

You always need to balance Risk & Reward
10/ TAKING PROFITS - PT3

First i tried taking out 50% profit for every 100% gain against the original price

Whilst this approach lets you take back initial investment when price goes up 100%, there isn't enough money left in to get bigger gains. Image
11/ TAKING PROFITS - PT4

Second i tried taking out 20% profit every 100% gain against the original price.

The issue here is you have to wait for a 200% 🔼 to get near taking out your initial investment out & you have less accumulated gains at a 400%

Worst of both worlds. Image
12/ TAKING PROFTS - PT5

The ideal ratio i found was taking out 20% every 50% gain. Because:
-You get initial investment out by 150%
-You still have a decent amount of profits accumulating
-AND you have a decent amount of money left compounding if it moons. Image
12/ TAKING PROFITS - PT6
This is approach is flexible too:
-If its a #memecoin you can take out profits every 50% growth
-If it has good fundamentals, de-risk (take out initial investment) and let it ride high for big gains

BTW i dont buy buy meme coins.
But up to you.
13/ STACKING BLUE CHIPS
Once i take profits i always try and stack #bitcoin , #eth , #sol & #matic in the proportions/percentages i shared earlier.
14/ STACKING BLUE CHIPS - 2

When it comes to buying bluechips I NEVER try and time the market.

Instead i DCA (Dollar cost average). Setting a set amount of money aside to buy each month.

Taking a long term view (years not months) DCA almost always beats timing the market.
15/ #bitcoin DCA ON STERIOIDS - 1

When it comes to #bitcoin i also like to use a number of indicators to inform my buying each month.

I may increase/decrease the relative amount depending on the indicators in this thread.

16/ #bitcoin on DCA STERIOIDS - 2

Beyond these indicators, i cut out a lot of #cryptotwitter noise and listen to the best people around:

Many will be down bad in #crypto
Maybe you followed a terrible pick from an #Influencer & it dumped.

If you want to win in #crypto & you need to beat them.
You need to use the tools they do & find the best #HiddenGems first.

Here is a list of 15 essential tools you need 🧵👇
1/ MESSARI

Always try to spot the next big macro trend or 'narrative' in #crypto. Just because #play2earn or #DEFI was hot in the past, doesn't mean it will be in the future.

The thesis by @twobitidiot at @MessariCrypto
is 1 of the best tools 4 this:

messari.io/pdf/messari-re…
2/ #CoinMarketCap

Once you have found a narrative, time to find some great potential projects that could run alongside it.

(Eg if #Defi is coming back, hunt for small-cap Defi projects)

@CoinMarketCap is one of the best tools 4 doing this.

$50BN was wiped off the value of @netflix $NFLX this week.
To understand why I'd like to take a different perspective.

I will break down the #brand & #business failings that led to this loss.
In the simple & small thread below 🧵👇
#marketing #brand #Netflix Image
1/ PRODUCT-MARKET FIT pt1

We live in an increasingly impatient world.

We live in a world where we expect everything immediately. We can buy whatever we want, with one click. We can order a taxi, instantly. And stream endless content, whenever we want.
1/ PRODUCT-MARKET FIT pt2

In this increasingly impatient world, $NFLX had a great product-market fit.

-epic amounts of great content.
-content that dropped all at once, no need to wait, just binge it all straightaway.
-no distractions, 100% ad-free.
-very cheap monthly fee.

An important thing to master in #crypto.
Is understanding Tokeconomics.
It helps you eliminate bad projects fast.
And identify hidden gems 💎

After learning from years of experience in #crypto.
Here is a simple thread that spells out what you need to know🧵👇
1/ WHAT THIS THREAD WILL COVER

-Total circulating supply
-Total market cap & fully diluted market cap
-Token ownership
-Token unlocks
2/ TOTAL CIRCULATING SUPPLY (TCS) (i)

TCS is the max number of tokens that can ever exist for a project.

Think of it like shares issued by a company. The bigger the number, generally the worse it is.

Because each token represents a smaller % ownership of a project.

There is a lot of uncertainty in the markets right now.
IMO too many are embracing an ‘up only’ mindset.

But I have spent countless hours reading & learning.
To form my own hypothesis.

Here is a thread explaining what I think. 🧵👇
⚠️ many won't like what I have to say.
OVERVIEW

To be clear I am bullish long-term on #bitcoin & the #crypto market in general.

But if you follow me you will know I have been bearish for a while.

And before you scream FUD or attack me.
Just read the thread 👇
1/ BTC + STOCK CORRELATION

- $BTC is more correlated to the NASDAQ & SP500 than ever before.

-This is b/c $BTC is a much larger asset class + the relative increase in institutional investors.

-Once you understand this correlation you can begin to see some warning signs

Investing in #crypto isn't easy.
Most make big mistakes.
And many lose a lot of money.

I have spent countless hours reading & improving.
And learning from my mistakes.

Here is a simple thread with the 7 key things I have learned & you need to know 🧵👇
#cryptocurrency
1/ RESEARCH (i)
Despite being told to do you’re own research #DYOR most new investors don't! They APE in & let greed/emotions take over.

You NEED to do you’re own research & form you’re own hypothesis.

BTW watching an influencer Youtube video doesn't count.
1/ RESEARCH (ii)

Some of the most important things you need to research on a project are:

-Tokeconomics (market cap, unlocks & allocation)
-Brand story (a project many can get behind)
-Brand experience (is it easy to use + build upon)
-Does it play to a #crypto narrative

2/ CATALYST - 1

$ETH is struggling with high fees & slow speeds. And while there have been high hopes for $MATIC & other L2s...they are still not as cheap as $SOL
