100$ Split Into Top 10 Cryptocurrencies Every Week. Week #8 - Still No Green in Sight


All my holdings are down this week. A rough start of a year, and a rough start for my experimental portfolio. But I am still looking at this as a buy-the-dip opportunity. I will keep investing to see how all of this plays out in the long term. Last week's post here!

About the experiment

Follow along my journey of investing 100$ every week split equally into the Top 10 cryptocurrencies at the time. I will post updates about the overall growth of my experimental portfolio as well as some insights about the biggest winners and losers of the portfolio.I am not including stablecoins in my experiment, and will not be staking or earning interest on any cryptocurrency in this experimental portfolio. The purpose of this experiment is to see if investing weekly in Top 10 cryptocurrencies is a feasible long-term investment strategy and to measure it against other common strategies. For the purposes of this experiment, I will also not take into account trading fees, so I can invest an equal amount of dollar value into each of the cryptocurrencies.
