2017 created massive returns for crypto investors

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies began to dominate the news in late 2017, but what about if you had been a savvy investor and invested $5,000 into 5 popular cryptocurrencies back on January 1st 2017?

Well, you’d have made a staggering 11183% return on your investment in just 12 months! No stocks, bonds or shares would have managed anything like that!

Let’s look at the details – all you would have needed to do was invest $1000 each in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Dash:

That’s a total profit of $559,152.43 from $5,000 – absolutely amazing! What will surprise most people is that Bitcoin wasn’t the big winner here – despite the massive price increase, it gave the smallest return out of the all the cryptocurrencies in the portfolio! The best return was Ripple, which increased a massive 32093% in just twelve months.
