This is NOT the
Perfect Portfolio. But it does work great for us at EnergyMe333. We hope it gives you tips to create your own perfect portfolio!
EnergyMe333 does NOT provide financial advice. EnergyMe333 provides Self-Education Tools. This is a starting point for your own research. The following information is intended for educational and informational purposes only. Please understand that cryptocurrencies can be volatile. What risk level are you comfortable with?
Buy low and sell high. Do the opposite of the crowd. Buy at market lows / crashes.
Sell some of your coins close to market tops. During a bull (upwards) market, take profits. Take profits into USD, precious metals, or other cryptocurrency. Be cautious with the stablecoins. More on the Terra Luna/UST attack. At the next crash low, use those profits to buy more coins. Repeat this cycle. Always keep (HODL) a comfortable percentage of core positions. Try to keep a reserve so you can buy at market lows or cash out as needed. Pay off your debts.
What is the function? Where is the value? Some parameters for choosing: use case (functions/services/benefits), open source code, liquidity in a bear market, solo blockchain, market cap, community benefit, mineable, governance, understandable website.
Note: These are non-ETHEREUM selections because ETH is frustratingly expensive and slow. Most of the coins below are available on Atomic Wallet, Metamask and Osmosis.
Barbell Portfolio Structure. Large amounts of steady and reliable coins. Smaller amount of high-risk-high-reward coins.
Some key investment tips from Crypto Empire: Don't invest more than you can afford to lose. Keep core safety positions in high-volume, high-liquidity coins. See link above regarding stablecoin caution. Don't get overly attached to a project. Research your projects. Position yourself for future trends. Know when you want to ride out a crash.
This portfolio avoids crypto
fashions. So currently there are no DAOs, no Game Coins, no NFT coins, no Wrapped coins* and no AI coins on the list. Pursue these with extra money that you can afford to lose. * Where does the wrapped coin live (whose address?) and who controls it? Is it on an exchange? Most of these coins are still in development phases and need refinement.
Be sure to keep a
moon bag. What is a moon bag? Let's say your crypto goes up in value. So you take profits into USD, precious metals, other cryptos. But you keep just 10% or 20% in reserve. Why? What if suddenly the crypto goes up in value 1000x or more? You still have the reserve that you can cash out. This is what cryptocurrencies are famous for. This is why you need a moon bag.

__% **** Binance (BNB). High liquidity. We are cheering on Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ). We have a lot of respect for CZ and don't want him to be the scapegoat for current SECpurge. SECaccuses Binance of everything they (SEC) are doing! We love the exchange, but move your coins to your own private wallet. Be cautious with all the stablecoins, including BUSD. Product: reliable, highly liquid, centralized crypto exchange. BNB HQ: Malta?
__% **** Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP). Centralized (BigBank) Payment Systems. Liquid in a bear market. Caution: be sure to take some profits asap on these coins. XRP and XLM HQ: San Francisco.

__% ** Titano (TITANO). Runs on Binance Smart Chain. TITANO HQ: Private. Product: Auto-Compounding Protocol. HIGH RISK - HIGH REWARD. Careful with this one.

Product: Passive-Income-High-Risk-High-Reward Compounding-Staking Coin that compounds in your own wallet. For those with a strong stomach.
This is a just-so-you-know caution: Bitcoin and Ethereum are SLOW and EXPENSIVE. BCH is still slow. This is why we prefer the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Check out this Summary of BTC by Richard Heart, the founder of HEX. However if you love Bitcoin, check out the Contrarian Dude.

Shiba Inu (SHIB), Doge (DOGE), Floki (FLOKI), Dogelon Mars (ELON). Caution: be sure to take some profits to cover your initial investment on these coins. Do not underestimate the Meme Coin Category. Remember that bitcoin started as a Fantasy Game Coin.

***** We are all for the Beneficial-Whales that take profits in steps over time. It's the Rug-Pull-Whales that are problematic. Screen for anti-rug-pull-mechanisms such as: sell fee that benefits holders, liqudity locks, time-locks, maximum-sell-amount-code that prevents massive sell offs where max sell volume is limited to a percent/ratio per wallet address or treasury holding or time-lock. Screen treasury holdings for high liquidity coins. DAOs: The authors are pro-DAO but also realize they are in a rapid-development phase. So screen carefully and avoid the rug-pulls.
**** Please be aware that the Ripple (XRP) blockchain is private, centralized, and manipulated. Hold XRP for short term gains (1-3 years) and translate profits into decentralized coins. Ditto for Binance. Binance is a centralized exchange.
**** Binance (BNB). Binance programming runs on Cosmos (ATOM). Be aware that Binance is also centralized, but is supportive and transitioning to decentralized projects.
*** Hex (HEX) is a Certificate of Deposit vehicle on the blockchain. HEX is currently on Ethereum, but will be moving to the new PulseChain (MetaMask) in 2022.
** Small coins with high-risk, high-reward potential. Titano (TITANO) and PALLAS are high risk rebase/compounding coins. Titano is keyed to Binance (BNB). Pallas and Poseidon are keyed to Fantom (FTM). These coins can be highly profitable and highly volatile at same time! Withdrawal fees. Make withdrawals in steps.
* LTC will be slow compared with SOL. Digibyte will be faster than LTC or SOL.
