Cardano, Pokadot and Chainlink Technical Buying Levels - My Crypto Market Investing Strategy for 2021

Currencies / cryptocurrency Aug 20, 2021 - 10:28 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Currencies

1. BTC & ETH - My primary focus will be on building positions in BTC and ETH that will target approx 80% of my crypto portfolio, the balance spread between a number of Alt Coins such as Cardano and Pokadot.

2. Hold BUSD and USDC - In advance of buying crypto's I am funding my accounts (mainly Binance) with approx 50% of my target position size to as to capitalise on a high GBP exchange rate, converting into BUSD and USD whilst also correcting my initial error of holding USDT.

3. Place limit orders on approx half of the funds on account across the target crypto's in relatively nearby levels compared to the more distant levels i.e. BTC $21,500 and ETH $1400. Whilst my initial limit orders are far distant from the actual crypto prices as I am anticipating a decline in prices. However over time my orders will gravitate towards being nearer to the actual spot price i.e. over the next 6 months and where I could even be buy crypto at spot rather than with limit orders depending on what transpires over the remainder of this year due to various dynamics such as the Ravencoin halving due in Jan 2022 etc in advance of which I want to have a significant holding of raven coins.


4. INTEREST - With the remaining 50% of USDC and BUSD placed in short-term 7 day fixed deposits that earn 5.31% (APR) with Binance, re-evaluating every 7 days whether to continue fixing or place more limit orders with i.e. as crypto's begin to sell off.

5. Account Funding - As the limit orders are triggered I will then look to fund my accounts with more fiat.

At the moment my focus is on using Binance, however I hope to eventually be able to fund Coinbase so as to spread the risk between exchanges, else it is likely Binance will remain the primary means of building my crypto portfolio.

Crypto 4 - Cardano $1.59

Cardano (ADA) is a third gen blockchain, a competitor and backup to Ethereum that is a 2nd gen blockchain. Cardano looks set to create it's own ETHesk ecosystem and currently has obvious advantages in terms of gas fees i.e. about 16 cents per transaction. Therefore I will be looking to invest 3.5% in ADA. I aim to place 90% of my limit orders between $0.46 and $0.17.

Crypto 5 - Pokadot $25

Pokadot / DOT about to be listed on Coinbase Pro so a coming of age alt coin, another Ethesk eco system such as Cardano. Price rise from $7 at the start of the year to a high of $50, currently trading down 50% at $25. I aim to invest 3.3% in DOT, with 90% of limit orders in the range of $8 to $4.

Crypto 6 - ChainLink $26

An ERC20 token that attempts to bridge the gap between the blockchain and the rest off the world. Proponents of Chainlink expect the crypto to literally skyrocket to the moon with daft targets of $1000. The crypto peaked at $52 and has fallen by about 50% to currently trade at $26. I am aiming to invest 3.1% in a price range of between $4 and $10 for about 90% of holdings.

The breakdown of the remainder of my target crypto holdings is -

  • Lite coin $178 - 2.4% - at sub $84
  • Nucypher $0.31 - 1.7% - at sub $0.19
  • Stellar Lumens $0.34 - 1.1% - at sub $0.25
  • GRT $0.71 - 1% - at sub $0.45
