100$ Split Into Top 10 Cryptocurrencies Every Week. Week #17 - Uncertainty Is Back
It's week 17 and uncertainty is back. Fears of inflation amongst the ongoing pandemic and military conflict in Ukraine have pushed the markets down once again. And we are in buy-the-dip mode again. At least I hope we are buying the dip. And although some view cryptocurrencies as a hedge against inflation, crypto markets are down. Of all the top10 coins only LUNA is up this week. Nevertheless, BTC is currently outperforming my overall portfolio. Last week it was the other way around, but the margin was quite thin. Check out the previous update here!
About the experiment
Follow along my journey of investing 100$ every week split equally into the Top 10 cryptocurrencies at the time. I will post updates about the overall growth of my experimental portfolio as well as some insights about the biggest winners and losers of the portfolio.I am not including stablecoins in my experiment, and will not be staking or earning interest on any cryptocurrency in this experimental portfolio. The purpose of this experiment is to see if investing weekly in Top 10 cryptocurrencies is a feasible long-term investment strategy and to measure it against other common strategies. For the purposes of this experiment, I will also not take into account trading fees, so I can invest an equal amount of dollar value into each of the cryptocurrencies.
