Final Thoughts

Some cryptocurrencies look very promising, but unfortunately, they are all very expensive. My advice to investors is to wait for a massive correction before buying any cryptocoin. The market values at this moment are extreme and irrational. Projects that have cost 2-3 million dollars in 2016 now worth 350 million dollars. Many coins have seen a more than 2,000% increase in 2017, and that fact itself speaks of a bubble.

The demand for cryptocurrencies is increasingly high, but do not forget that the crypto market has no barriers to entry/exit. No barriers to entry mean increased competition (supply) in the future. There are more than 1,000 cryptocoins today but there could be 10,000 cryptocoins in the next 3 years. The demand is strong but the supply is unlimited. Nobody can stop the supply.

In overall, the keys to successful crypto-investments are:

  • Patience for a strong correction

  • Choosing coins based on their future technological superiority

  • Choosing coins based on their management background
