My attempt at a 100x portfolio for 2018

As you might remember, last month, I took all Top100 coins and categorized them into their 12 markets. https://ift.tt/2HGPacI was all done with the goal in mind to find a portfolio that can return 100x in 2018.The assumption for this portfolio is that Bitcoin will go up by 4x ($32,000) until the end of 2018 amassing a total market cap of 3$ trillion as a conservative estimate in comparison to our 6 last bull runs, which wereNumberMultiplePeriodYearPriceCorrectionCorrection period19x5 days2010$0.008-$0.080%-210×5 months2010$0.08-$1-30%2 months340x2 months2011$0.07-$30-90%5 months414x3 months2013$15-$213-65%3 months512x2 months2013$139-$1132-85%13 months620x7 months2017$1000-$19,800-70%3 months717x4 months2018$5,800-100,000?-70%5 monthsSource: https://ift.tt/2jrWRcu you can see, a 17x bull run on Bitcoin happens on average around once a year. Many altcoins went 100x in the last bull run, since altcoin always grow much stronger than the behemoth Bitcoin.Building a strong portfolio always boils down to the following 3 factors:Pick the best assets. In order to do that, I analyzed all top 100 cryptocurrencies, and picked the best ones within each market. Then, I looked for other coins that are within the Top1000 and that are actually better than the leaders in each market from the top 100, due to their short time in the market and being underdogsDiversify The whole portfolio is designed to catch 2-3 really good coins that return 300x-1000x. The rest of the coins will probably return 20x, 50x or some even only 2x. That’s why you need at least 10 coins to make sure you to catch your top performers. 5 coins would be too few, since you might only catch 1 top performer if at all.Centralise You need to diversify, but also don’t diversify too much, because then you are spread too thin. That’s why 20 coins would be too many, because even if if you catch 3 top performers, you would only have 15% of your money in it.For these 3 reasons, the number of coins is set at 14 and is divided into26% High risk high return coins50% Medium risk medium return coins24% Low risk low return coinsPortfolioAll coins are listed on Binance or KuCoin and their weights are listed on the second tab of my excel spread sheet: https://ift.tt/2qOap59 risk high return 26%:The point of a high risk high return portfolio is to catch one 1000x-coin among them.

As you can see, a 17x bull run on Bitcoin happens on average around once a year. Many altcoins went 100x in the last bull run, since altcoin always grow much stronger than the behemoth Bitcoin.

Building a strong portfolio always boils down to the following 3 factors:

  1. Pick the best assets. In order to do that, I analyzed all top 100 cryptocurrencies, and picked the best ones within each market. Then, I looked for other coins that are within the Top1000 and that are actually better than the leaders in each market from the top 100, due to their short time in the market and being underdogs
  2. Diversify The whole portfolio is designed to catch 2-3 really good coins that return 300x-1000x. The rest of the coins will probably return 20x, 50x or some even only 2x. That's why you need at least 10 coins to make sure you to catch your top performers. 5 coins would be too few, since you might only catch 1 top performer if at all.
  3. Centralise You need to diversify, but also don't diversify too much, because then you are spread too thin. That's why 20 coins would be too many, because even if if you catch 3 top performers, you would only have 15% of your money in it.

For these 3 reasons, the number of coins is set at 14 and is divided into

  1. 26% High risk high return coins
  2. 50% Medium risk medium return coins
  3. 24% Low risk low return coins

Portfolio

All coins are listed on Binance or KuCoin and their weights are listed on the second tab of my excel spread sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1s8PHcNvvjuy848q18py_CGcu8elRGQAUIf86EYh4QZo/edit#gid=1597706888

High risk high return 26%:

The point of a high risk high return portfolio is to catch one 1000x-coin among them. These 3 coins give a 1000x return when going to a $10B market cap for BNTY and Elix. These are the best <$10M from my research. Other contenders were Xspec, Sumo, Snovio, DeepOnion, Masari.

  1. 10% BNTY is a platform where you can earn money through finding bugs, a bug bounty. BNTY soon wants to expand into “bounties” for gigs, to become the new fiverr/freelancer.com.

  3. 6% Havven is a stable coin. There are already 3 other stable coins with higher market caps, Maker, DGD, Bitshares, however, Havven is the 4th one with a 30x smaller market cap. Investing in a stable coins isn't investing in the coin itself obviously, since it is supposed to stay stable, but in the company that launched the stable coin.

Medium risk medium return 49%:

These coins are the backbone of the portfolio. They are all legit projects with a product out already, a strong team, strong community and a potent market. All of these coins will probably make a 20x return and some a 100x-200x return, possibly PRL, GAS and ENJ, that’s why they have more weight than the others.

  1. 10% PRL is in the decentralized data storage market as Siacoin, Gbyte, Maidsafecoin, Storj, only that it has a 5x smaller market cap and that it actually makes the storage useful by allowing people who store other people’s files to renounce ads and instead make their money through storing files.
  2. 13% It has been rumoured that GAS market cap will surpass NEO’s. For that reason, investing in GAS it is the same as investing in NEO, LISK, ARDR, etc. only that is has a 20x smaller market cap. If GAS ever only to 50% of Neo's market cap, it will have returned 7,5x more profit than NEO.

  4. 6% Enigma is privacy for smart contracts on Ethereum
  5. 2% PIVX is privacy with slightly superior technology to Monero, but at a 10x smaller market cap.
  6. 5% Req is in the currency and liquidity exchange market just as QASH, Loopring, Cryptonex, Bitshares, Kyber network, Bancor, ZRX, Achain, only that Req has probably the strongest community of all, best partnerships and is also more feature rich

Low risk low return 25%:

These are the safest bets with a working product, a large community and among the most potential within the Top100. Out of these, BNB is probably the safest bet of all, because it is directly tied to Binance, the exchange that has made it as the undisputed number 1 exchange due to excellent professionalism, transparency and intelligent leadership.

  1. 8% Vechain is a supply chain platform and the coin with the most and strongest partnerships closed within the cryptosphere.
  2. 4% Nano is probably the fastest and most lightweight cryptocurrency right now with instant transactions, zero fees and one millionth the energy use of Bitcoin due to it’s 3rd generation blockchain, the block lattice.
  3. 8% IOTA is similar to Nano with instant transactions, zero fees, very low energy usage thanks to its 3rd generation blockchain, the tangle. While it has bigger potential than Nano, it also still has some bugs and security issues to work out.
  4. 5% BNB, is probably the safest of all bets. It is among the only 5 cryptocurrencies that have turned a 10%+ profit this year. https://www.cointimemachine.com/top-100-best-cryptocurrency-list-2018/
