Spanning three floors, it featured captivating talks, engaging discussions, and exciting startup pitches.
Among the diverse topics, we were thrilled to be part of one of the biggest talks during the conference. Holger Rohm, the owner of Blockchaincenter.net, presented "I Buy a New Trending Coin Every Day for $100" one of the most visited websites not only in the German market but also in the English-speaking community in the crypto space.
What is the backstory behind this unique and exciting idea? From the website Blockchaincenter.net.net we can read the following:
The backstory behind this unique idea begins in early 2023 when our "Trending Coins" tool was developed. It identifies cryptocurrencies currently trending based on various metrics. Naturally, the question arose: Does this tool work as a trading strategy? Can one profit by buying the recommended coins? To find out, the plan was simple: Buy a trending coin daily for $100, track the results, and observe what happens.Buy a trending coin daily for $100, track the results, and observe what happens.
Showcase - Insights from Holger
During the conference, Holger from Blockchaincenter.net shared insights from this journey, which included ups and downs, surprises, and both good and bad moments during this experiment. The most significant moment came when he compared buying trending coins to the prominent cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. Through our graph tool, Holger demonstrated that although trending coins can experience significant value increases (+15%), in the long run, they never surpass an established, pioneering coin like Bitcoin. This comparison was an eye-opener for attendees, highlighting how a strategic plan can yield more returns than short-lived hype. It reaffirmed why dollar-cost averaging (DCA) remains a superior strategy to buying trending coins.
Why DCA is still a better strategy than buying trending coins?
DCA's regular, fixed investments over time minimize market volatility, reduce the risk of poorly timed trades, and promote steady long-term growth without the pressure of timing market fluctuations. Following this disciplined strategy encourages a steady investment habitat and keeps you away from one of the biggest fears in the finance world. FOMO (fear of missing out).
