Cryptocurrency will eventually just be “currency”.-Det V Cader
• Bitcoin BTC
52 percent of portfolio, up from 30. After further research and analysis, I’ve leaned even more heavily towards this coin. Selling / exchanging some or all of XRP, ADA and LTC. About half of these coins are in cold storage, a small amount in a hot wallet and the rest with Nexo, earning 6 percent interest.
• Solana SOL
20 percent of portfolio, up from 3. I rapidly DCA’ed into SOL as I saw my initial holdings of these coins rise hundreds of percent. Now I’m confident this will be the best performer, thus now my second largest holding and biggest portfolio increase. All my SOL is staked through a hot wallet, earning 6 percent.
• Ethereum ETH
11 percent of portfolio, down from 25. Took profits on some of these coins then used the proceeds to top up on Bitcoin and Solana. About half of these coins are in cold storage, various amounts in several hot wallets and the rest with Nexo, earning 6 percent interest.
• Monero XMR
7 percent of portfolio, down from 15. This is still my favorite crypto and also the only one I use as “money”, which is my holdings have decreased. Some of these coins are in a cold wallet and various amounts in specialized hot wallets, most notably Cake Wallet.
• Cardano ADA
3 percent of portfolio, down from 6. Exchanged some ADA for SOL when the prices were favorable (when Cardano was up, Solana was down). Most of these coins are in my Exodus (hot) wallet earning 5 percent and the rest with Nexo at 6 percent.
• Algorand ALGO
2 percent of portfolio. A stack of these were given as payment for a VIP membership to TRDCRFT instead of Bitcoin from a member on the condition it was for over the USD price. Regardless, it seems like a promising crypto and blockchain. I have these staked in my Exodus wallet earning just under 5 percent.
• Polygon MATIC
2 percent of portfolio. These were also given as payment in lieu of Bitcoin under the same condition. Interestingly, if it wasn’t for Solana, I would have most likely went big with MATIC. These are also staked in my Exodus wallet earning almost 10 percent.
• Stellar XLM
1 percent of portfolio, down from 2. Although the percentage has gone down, the amount has been unchanged, except for the interest received from lending to Nexo, earning 6 percent.
0 percent of portfolio, down from 7. I’ve exhausted my supply of these coins (USDC, GUSD etc.) to up my Bitcoin and Solana holdings while the prices were low.
This portfolio is accurate as of October 15, 2021. My focus is to hodl, to hold on to these assets as a long game – with some cryptos indefinitely. As well as to collect interest for passive income and compound, trading on rare occasions to realize opportune profits.
