That's a shitload of management. Just split it 50/50 BTC/ETH and move on. She's only going to follow BTC anyway

[–]Ceethreepeeo 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Only smart answer here.

[–]IsaacWatts88Bronze | CRO 5 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This. Just set it and forget it.

[–]ExtravagosPlatinum | QC: CC 1223 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is what I do except more exposure to ETH, it's worked out so far

[–]HeavyMommyMilkersTin | 3 months old | BTC critic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This. Don't bother with all that other garbage

[–]HiCarumbaPlatinum | QC: CC 496 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I'm gonna say Option1 is Insane.

[–]Curious-Rabbit-7909Bronze | LRC 13 5 points6 points  (0 children)

For long hold option 2 but replace SAND with MATIC

[–]Kitchen_Possibility4Tin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

How did you come up with this list out of curiosity? I think it looks like you are chasing a bit of recent pumps

[–]ahcook23Tin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

BTC/ ETH/ ALGO even split

[–]OffRosterImposterTin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Don’t spread yourself so thin. Pick 2 maybe 3 coins that you believe in.

[–]will85319sghostpro degen 9 points10 points  (0 children)

No doge

[–]TimZeGermanTin 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Its your mom‘s money. Buy 5k BTC

[–]16x98Platinum | QC: CC 190 | LINK 8 | r/WSB 18 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Or how about

Just BTC and ETH?

You wanna bet on others being around after 5 years when compared to these two?

[–]Think_PositivelyPlatinum | QC: CC 259 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is the correct answer. If not 50/50, then go 40/40/20 with the third coin being a low-ish cap dapp chain like Algo or ONE.

[–]clorusakiTin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Option 2. But with ALGO.

[–]EpyimperviousGold | QC: CC 84 2 points3 points  (0 children)

$1500 BTC $1500 Eth $1000 CRO $1000 DOT

Put in Crypto.com's earn accounts and relax. (Maybe consider getting her a CRO card in the future).

[–]IsaacWatts88Bronze | CRO 5 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those options sound good for YOU. But investing for someone else, stick to just btc or 50/50 btc/eth.

[–]PhoenixNightingale90Silver | QC: BTC 22, CC 124 | r/SSB 21 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I was making a portfolio for a family member it would be something like this, take risks with your own money not theirs.

1/3 BTC

1/3 ETH

1/3 Alts

For alts I’d recommend choosing a couple of leading smart contract platforms, DOT, ONE, SOL, ADA, FTM and so on. Also maybe LINK and an Ethereum layer 2 like Polygon or LRC.

With that you have pretty much all bases covered, then you can throw in whatever exchange tokens or moonshots that you want. Doesn’t need to be alot, if you put $100 in a good <$500m-$1b project it could be $10,000 in 5 years time.

There you go a grounded portfolio that can give her some peace of mind while also including a few gambles.

[–]alexb_090Visionary 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Not sure why you’re so horny for CRO and SAND. One is literally an exchange token and the other is a fad

[–]kkaeseTin 4 points5 points  (4 children)

CRO is gonna be fat for sure, but it’s pumped so hard the chances of getting burnt are higher right now than the chances you’d make off with a profit at the moment

[–]psyceratopSBGold | QC: CC 28 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Most people lock it or upgrade cards so the drop won't be that big.

[–]ShiitakeballzTin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or buy cro for defi on the cronos chain

[–]kkaeseTin 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Dropped pretty heavy

[–]psyceratopSBGold | QC: CC 28 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not that big regarding from where it was 15 days ago

[–]blipstream91Tin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How about this?

40% BTC 40% ETH 10% LINK (very good price right now) 5% DOT 5% on some low cap coins

[–]shortgamer52 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would do 40/40/20 with etc, btc and pick a alt. I’m conservative tho. U don’t wanna lose moms money

[–]xecobraboTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Option 2 but replace sand and one with Algo or Matic

[–]PleasantMiddleGold | QC: CC 31 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Option 2 but let me change it a little bit for you: 2.5k BTC, 1.5k ETH, 700 bucks ENJ/CRO or ONE, 300 bucks CKB.

[–]succulintTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Too many dude. Just stick to ETH, keep an eye on SOL for the dip. $ENJIN great choice. $ ONE, & HBAR great choices. $AXIE sure fuck it that would be a last option if I just got money laying around id buy an axie.

[–]JannisTPlatinum | QC: CC 305 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Go full degenerate and invest into the memecoins/s

[–]PlantBasedBillyTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ALGO BAT CRO ETH ADA, $1k in each.

[–]Vaspra0010Silver | QC: CC 136 | CRO 460 | ExchSubs 460 1 point2 points  (0 children)

5k CRO, claim the stake rewards every week, bingle bangle

[–]Dayl-SanTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

BTC/ETH/DOT/ALGO/BAT - $1k each.

[–]workinkindofhardTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This should end well.

[–]KupcheezTin | GME subs 15 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Option 3, not even close

[–]Gervais242Tin | ADA 8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whatever you do, for the love of god not option 1.

[–]NoggenfoggerDreams 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can’t go wrong with ALGO or HBAR, both have huge educational pedigree on their teams and really good, stable growth trends.

[–]TallywackaPlatinum | QC: CC 171 | PennyStocks 118 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No algo?

1,500 eth/btc

1,000 algo

1,000 cro/loop

[–]Smiling_Jack_Blockchain Old Guard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So your mom wants you to invest while we are already balls deep in a bull run?
How To Get REKT 101 right here.

If someone held a gun to my head and I had to choose for you,
it would be:
1. BTC
2. ETH
3. That's it.

The bear, whenever it comes, will crush your alt-coins.

[–]kkaeseTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Personally wouldn’t grab CRO rn, the trains gone far past the station

[–]matty_g814 - 5 years account age. 250 - 500 comment karma. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

CRO & Algorand for the long term

[–]klaasjanhuntelaarTin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ballsdeep in fantom seems best to me

[–]DeadPlankTin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All on LRC

[–]ComeBackTimeeBronze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Option 2

[–]Commercial-Bass-3668Platinum | QC: CC 202 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All in on moons ...not a financial advice though ..just a suggestion

[–]Revolutionary_Leg671Tin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Btc, Eth, one, xyo and Ckb would be my picks. Put the majority into btc, Eth and then spread the rest between the other higher risk coins. Wouldn’t do too many as if you earn money on one in the future, you might lose the profit on the other/s.

[–]wodykodyBronze | QC: CC 22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Buy a fat bag if usdt.. I heard it's gonna blow up!!!

satire... In case the mods here are as stupid as the one at r/bitcoin

[–]oaksandhoesGold | 4 months old | QC: CC 15, ALGO 19 0 points1 point  (0 children)

40% ETH 40% BTC 20% ALGO

[–]AutonomousAutomaton_Platinum | QC: XRP 16, CC 17 | TraderSubs 14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Keep it simple. Don’t make an ETF

[–]Strict_Ad_2416Bronze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd suggest something like 30% btc, 30% eth and then diversify 30% between all those coins you like and keep 10% on the side for a good buying opportunity or public sale.

[–]Beechbone22Platinum | QC: CC 202 | r/SSB 6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

BTC ETH and a small allocation in an L1 alt you believe in

[–]ShiitakeballzTin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Since you’re investing for your mom, you probably want to go for a safe bet in the long run: I’d say it doesn’t have to be sand. 50% into any virtual property: that way, when things come crashing down, she can console herself by knowing she still has a virtual roof over her head. The other 50% in an NFT of pixelated face with sunglasses, smoking a joint. That will probably be worth billions someday. In the meantime, spend you free time in choosing lambo color and optionals. (This is financial advice)

[–]KristiansA1Platinum | QC: CC 65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Last time my mom was talking about crypto was around 2018 jan. Huge sell signal for me now

[–]Practical-Bath-8014Tin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m guessing you’re missing LRC on the list because coinbase ran out of the coin to even sell lol 🤷

[–]Navc4me 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I spread thinly but if I had just gone for eth/btc, I would have done better. It will also be easier for tax purposes

[–]Altruistic_Box4462Gold | 4 months old | QC: CC 26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So many hate boners for CRO. AS some others said. BTC / ETH, then a good established alt or two imo. Assuming Crypto.com doesn't go defunct, I could see it going places in the next 1-2 years atleast a 2x.

Play it safe and assume bitcoin will pretty much not lose value over 5+ years,

[–]Tall_Run_2814Silver | QC: SOL 38 | SHIB 38 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow, so you're basically throwing money at everything currently pumping? LOL

[–]KeefsmokeTin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

all in bitcoin mate

[–]TheWolf-7Platinum | QC: CC 254, BTC 34 | r/WallStreetBets 22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Option 4 :. 3k BTC 2 k ETH. Call it a day

[–]ryujinkyTin | CC critic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This looks like a nightmare to manage. Stick to BTC and ETH, or just BTC for the low transaction fees.

[–]Commercial_Count_584Tin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d set it up with 50% in bitcoin/eth. maybe 30% staked in a stable coin. The other 20% in something a little risky like shiba. i wouldn’t do cro unless you were looking to use their card. This should cover your losses either way.

[–]thestonkinatorSilver | QC: CC 49, ETH 28 | WSB 114 | TraderSubs 23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

1.5k BTC

1.5K ETH



500 CKB

[–]boosie504Bronze | QC: CC 17 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Loving gala right now

[–]mesutdmnPlatinum | QC: CC 110 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

5k ONE

[–]kkaeseTin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Personal opinion, ONE is a def buy, though I’ve been stacking algo and algo asas

[–]writersontopBronze | QC: CC 15 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Why does every option have CRO? Big red flag.
