HODL Series – Week 4 – Holding 20 (18) Cryptocurrencies for one year

So I’m now 4 weeks into holding these 18 coins for one year. Its been absolutely hectic so I still haven’t managed to pick another 2 coins to add to the portfolio. Busy few weeks at work and BTC has been taking alts to the slaughterhouse. I’ve also been putting together a mining rig which I will post about shortly!

I thought I would do a quick update on the current price of these coins as compared to what I bought them at. Overall, things are going better than they were in Bitcoin, I’m only down around 5% in total now. But in FIAT, the difference is vast. So although this portfolio hasn’t yet outperformed BTC, its still making me money and I will be intersted to see how it fares against BTC in the coming months.

Without further ado, the summaries for the 17 coins (obvisouly BTC is irrelevant for this analysis) is as follows:

Bitcoin Cash (BCC/BCH)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.20001095

Current Price: 0.1338

It certainly looks like, for now, there won’t be any dragons getting slain! At least I didn’t get as rekt as Roger and Jihan. RIP.

Ethereum (ETH)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.04845403

Current Price: 0.04078004

Still down a bit on this one but not a disaster by any means!

Litecoin (LTC)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00932499

Current Price: 0.00872002

Again,  not too worried about this one right now., down a little but not a lot!

Dash (DASH)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.06537073

Current Price: 0.06685

After PC picked it, Dash went on a bit of a run and has managed to hold its own against BTC during the latest bull run. Up a little bit and going steady.

OmiseGo (OMG)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00115033

Current Price: 0.000843

Looks like this golden child is going through a rough patch at the moment. I may even pick a little up for my dy trading portfolio soon as looks udnervalued to me.

ZCash (ZEC)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.04153415

Current Price: 0.028359

Well that’s not gone well at all either. Right now, I’m mining ZEN as I believe it will be a strong competitor to ZEC. I wonder if this oen will die off over the next year.

Lisk (LSK)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00094732

Current Price: 0.00065865

This one I do have in my daytrading portfolio. With the rebranding coming up, seemed like a bargain right now to me. It was also recently added to Binance, which is great as I plan to start trading there more than on Bittrex.

Ark (ARK)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00045344

Current Price: 0.0003436

After its fall from 0.0009, ARK never ceases to amaze me with the new lows it can hit!

Neo (NEO)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00438585

Current Price: 0.003433

NEO did an OMG on us all, announcing major news and then producing an already know about dev competition. Well done guys. Won’t be day trading this one anytime soon.

Monero (XMR)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.01908998

Current Price: 0.0173

Quite a bit down but from a TA perspective, this one looks to be in a good place right now. might pick up a day trading bag soon.


Where to buy: Bittrex

Price I bought: 0.00002945

Current Price: 0.00002430

This one isn’t doing well but hasn’t had any major catalysts whilst BTC has been doing tis thing so let’s see how things go.

Cardano (ADA)

Where to buy: Bittrex

Price I bought: 0.00000392

Current Price: 0.00001186

Oh yes! Just over 3x right now and it was up a lot more. I had ADA in my day trade bag at 357 and sold on SL at 343 before it went to 1600. At least I had some here. This is definitely a “one to watch” for me!

Stellar Lumens (XLM)

Where to buy: Bittrex

Price I bought: 0.00000467

Current Price: 0.00000809

Another one that’s doing well, its fallen off the peak for now but still up more than 70%. Not bad going and another one to keep a close eye on.

Zencash (ZEN)

Where to buy: Bittrex

Price I bought: 0.00376809

Current Price: 0.00302678

Although its a bit down from my buy-in, I have high hopes for ZEN over the coming year and have just setup a six card rig to mine it. Post and all the deets to come soon.

Ripple (XRP)

Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00003083

Current Price: 0.00002173

Cripple strikes again.

Current Price:


Where to buy: Binance

Price I bought: 0.00169597

Current Price: 0.00112600

Again, not doing so well but hasn’t had a lot of news over the last few weeks.

Neblio (NEBL)

Where to buy: Cryptopia

Price I bought: 0.00060999

Current Price: 0.00034986

Hmmm, not sure about this one!


So, a couple of big winners, a couple of big losers, and most hovering around 15% down after the BTC bull run. I wonder what Christmas will have in store!

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A small number of of my blog readers have complained about the website of mine not operating properly in Explorer but looks good in Chrome. Do you have some tips to help deal with this issue?
