A Cryptocurrency Trader and Investor:
“I can be very honest while sharing my journey, that even at the peak of my trading, I perceive myself as an investor first and always have,” Melker said in an interview with Insider.
“I tell everyone who asks me, that I’m an investor who trades.”
Melker, unlike many other famous crypto bulls, takes a much more balanced approach to investment by having some of their assets invested in traditional markets.
“I believe that people must have at least 60% to 70% of their assets in long-term investment, 15% in currency, and 15% for trading,” since traders, as we all know, appear to underperform the market
Crypto is only one component of a larger, well-diversified portfolio that includes everything from real estate to stock markets.
“In reality, until late 2019, I told the people that I’m not happy with getting more than 10% of profit in cryptocurrency,” Melker said.
That is no longer the case. Melker is now encouraging his crypto investments to expand to account for a much larger portion of his portfolio.
Crypto Asset Allocation
Melker follows a similar investing approach when it comes to his crypto investments. He invests 70% of his money in long-term holdings, mostly in bitcoin and ether, the native currency of Ethereum.The remaining of his long-term planning is targeted to trades that already have delivered extremely well.
In the cryptocurrency, you can earn 10/20/100 times profit on trade but ill recommend to dedicate the last 20 percent of that position to the investment account,and leave it for years to rise or let it go to zero because you had already pulled out your money, Melker Said
Because of the production of secure assets, Melker also mimics that 15% cash distribution seems to be in the traditional investment portfolio in his crypto holdings.
Stable coins are assets whose value is tied to an external currency, such as the US dollar or gold, in order to stabilize the price. Which are currently listed on a variety of sites, including Voyager and BlockFi, and give return up to 10% annual yield.
