- Make a plan to be profitable
Where the last bull market was a parabolic curve of madness and participants were HODLING, this time you need more of a plan. Between capital gains, staking rewards and yield farming in full swing, picking projects and ploughing the right fields will allow you to maximise your yields.
- Use Portfolio Theory
Modern Portfolio theory was developed by Harry Markowitz and first published in the Journal of Finance in 1952. The idea behind the theory is that assets have different risk and reward characteristics and that an investor can optimise their own portfolio by understanding the risks and rewards of investments.
Risks are understood as either systematic or unsystematic and for cryptocurrency, systematic risks affect the digital asset industry and could be thought of as things that influence the total market capitalisation. Unsystematic risk includes more nuanced risk of individual investment, such as Vitalik’s ability to deliver Ethereum 2.0.
A well diversified portfolio would reduce the effect of unsystematic risk through the most effective deployment of risk capital (i.e. your money).
At the least, framing your investments in terms of risk/reward is one of the strongest ways to look at them.

The money has never been made until you have exited your positions!
To decide on how to take profit, you should consider whether your position is a trade or investment. Trades use more leverage, have more pre-determined exits (the market will always change this) and you are trying to capture the move in the market as opposed to having a fundamental view of the asset in question.
Investments are more likely to be bought and sold with less market timing, although each way of looking at assets will often instruct the other.
The Warren Buffett method rarely fails ‘Buy when others are fearful and sell when others are greedy’.

- Decentralised Finance
Decentralised Finance, has exploded in 2020, capturing huge amounts of value for investors as well as providing very high risk/return profiles in some assets. DeFi investing has mostly been about capturing yield from different mechanisms such as posting assets, minting new assets with those and reinvesting them in other places.
Some of these are novel approaches to markets and we have seen new assets that are not clones of previous digital assets but act as a new layer of tokenomics over an already successful project. Some examples of this are Based over Ampleforth and Sushi over Uniswap.
The majority of these projects are built on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain and require ETH to make the transactions. Sign up to Mine Digital to ensure you have enough ETH to not get caught out.
So with these killer tips, you’re now ready to keep your ear to the ground and shoulder to the grindstone and to take full advantage of this and each new bull-market in these assets of the future.
