Project 2018 – Introduction

0

Welcome to Project 2018!

2017 was a fantastic year for investing in cryptocurrencies – but, will 2018 perform just as well? Or will it be even better, or perhaps worse?

To get the same sort of returns as 2017, some cryptocurrencies would have to increase their market cap by tens of billions – something pretty unrealistic. However, some haven’t had their time in the limelight yet and others still have room to grow. Additionally, there will be some huge cryptocurrencies that haven’t reached their ICO stage yet and some we won’t have heard of yet.

It is 2018 already; the start of a fresh year – and we fancy a little experiment! Let’s see how 2018 is going to turn out with cryptocurrencies by investing in some!


We’ve decided to put $2,500 of our own money into 25 different coins that we think could perform well in 2018 and we’re going to document our journey weekly for you to follow along. Whether you do the same or not is totally up to you!

The project is simple, we’ve bought $100 each of 25 different cryptocurrencies today (1st January 2018) and we plan to hold them until 31st December 2018. Each week we’ll post an update on how our portfolio is doing and you can see for yourself what sort of returns we get. There are a few simple rules to our project:

  • No selling high and buying back low or trading of any coins
  • No exchanging them for any other currencies
  • Forks that benefit us with free coins will be added to the portfolio, as they didn’t cost us anything.

Without further ado, here is the list of cryptocurrencies we have invested in. They were purchased either via Coinbase, Bittrex or CoinExchange.
