‘Long-HODL’ Crypto-Basket (Jan 2020+)

Welcome to the Ade’s (Crypto) Press Portfolio here in January 2020.

[Started in January 2019…]


‘Long-HODL’ is an ideal. I adapt where projects may not be turning out as expected, or if roadmaps change course in weird new directions(!)

2019 was pretty tough on altcoins, but that keeps the pressure on them to succeed.


Simple trades for accumulation, or unsustainable spikes. Due to infancy of market: invest and diversify in underlying tech, staking/passive income, personally useful (creative-focused), plus projects embedded into the space.

A more simple, 2020 portfolio focus:
– Bitcoin, Ethereum, VeChain, Tezos, Chainlink, Cosmos, Binance, KCS, iExec, Enjin, BAT.

Let’s see how we go in 2020… A good article/overview as reference can be found here on Money.com.

You can also view a virtual portfolio on CryptoCompare, where in July 2019, I added some projects with just 10 quid worth each, for easy comparison. You can see which ones have fared well at a glance.


If you’re interested in starting your own portfolio, or joining my private ‘fund’ (3% management fee) on Iconomi (started in June 2019) please get in touch.
