What do you own?
Rather than mention specifics, I'd rather state consistent themes I follow (some choices include more than one). Some of you can guess these but I will not comment so please don't ask.
1. New technologies (supplementing blockchain or completely new).
2. IoT (several different applications, especially supply chain).
3. East Asia (China, Korea, Japan, etc).
4. Picks and shovels (exchanges...ease-of-use and/or decentralized)
Diversify, do your own research (DYOR), read white papers, view YouTube reviews, read Reddit, Slack, Medium and Twitter. Initially I subscribed to a couple of paid services but have since dropped them. I can learn as much reading the free stuff mentioned above. There's a huge amount of info available and you can quickly sort out who's providing good info vs hype (beware of Pump & Dumpsters).
Be prepared for extreme volatility which is simply part of the game. The risks are high but so are the rewards. Just since Jan 1, my portfolio has gone up nearly 100%, down 50% and today +12%...just in 20 days! However +250% (3.5X) since I started 6 months ago (mid-July). If you can't stand this volatility even in a small portion of your portfolio, stick with CDs, bonds or ETFs. It is the Wild West again like the Internet Bubble in the 90s.
Don't do this! (There were PLENTY of warnings about BitConnect BCC).
