Another day, another coin (or two!)
Bitcoin was the original cryptocurrency when it launched in 2009. Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper was groundbreaking at the time and heralded the dawn of a new era.
Fast forward to 2018 and now there are new cryptocurrencies being launched every single day. There are literally thousands of cryptos to choose from, but the problem is only a small percentage have a legitimate use case and a reasonable chance of succeeding long-term. Some are outright scams and others may have a genuine development team but will still fail, just like most start-ups do.

Do Your Own Research is an essential concept for all facets of cryptocurrency, but is especially important when it comes to altcoins. Everyone has heard stories of 10x and 100x returns, but there’s also massive risk with many altcoin projects. Make sure you have done your due diligence and if you do decide to invest, it is important to use a conservative approach to risk management. Unless you have a tolerance for risk, don’t invest a significant percentage of your portfolio in speculative projects.
