This graphs is a few months old now, but still relevant.


It breaks down the Bitcoin bubbles and bear phases relative to the Bitcoin "halvening" (the number of Bitcoins produced every ~10 mins reduces by 50% every 4 years, this creates a massive supply shortage and a huge price explosion - almost like clockwork). The next halvening begins May 2020. Prices are already rising, possibly in anticipation of this event. Total Crypto Market Cap is just under $300 Billion at the moment. The last peak saw us reach $800 Billion. The next bubble could easily take us into the Trillion dollar range, I'd guess 1.5-2.5 Trillion at peak.

Investing in crypto continues to require some technical skill. Still no ETF available, although there are some stocks out there. If you can manage to invest in the cryptos themselves, some that should perform very well: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tezos (XTZ), Monero (XMR), Cosmos (ATOM), Chainlink (LINK). These will likely not be the highest performing but they are real projects, with unique characteristics solving real problems by skilled teams and likely to be around for years to come. Of course in a parabolic crypto bull market, almost everything goes up, and the Bitcoin halvening event may be a significant contributing factor to the next parabolic bull run.

if you are new, be sure to keep in mind the golden rule: "Never invest more than you can afford to lose". Why? Because crypto also goes down in price. Bear markets see most cryptos go down 80-99% ;-) But the investment opportunities are asymmetric for the good projects. Invest $10K, and yes you could lose almost all of it, but if you manage to sell during the parabolic bull run you could end up with $30K-$100K+ (2017 saw a handful of 100x and even 1000x returns, but these were quite rare). If you hang on to your crypto during the entire bear market, at bottom yeah, you could see massive losses. The good news is the bear market is highly likely behind us and a new bull market is likely to materialize as I said in the next 3months to 1.5 years.

PS. This is not investment advice. ;-)
Thanks Adeptus.
Your continuing comments on cryptos over the last couple years have been very insightful.
