I receive many messages via YouTube, Twitter, and Steemit requesting advice on which cryptocurrencies are good investments. Although I appreciate the trust the crypto community has placed with me, I am not a financial adviser. Therefore I can’t give individual financial advice in regards to which cryptos you should buy. I can however share my own personal cryptocurrency portfolio with you here. Below is a comprehensive list of the cryptocurrencies that I personally currently hold.
My Cryptocurrency Portfolio In Depth
Now let’s take a deeper look into the individual cryptos that I hold. These are the cryptocurrencies that I personally find worthy of holding in my portfolio. It is always important to do your own research when it comes to cryptocurrencies. The crypto market is currently very volatile. Just because a coin is up one day doesn’t mean it won’t be down the next day and vice versa. I’m sharing my portfolio here so that my personal crypto investments are clear and open for the community to see.
