Ultimate glossary of crypto currency terms, acronyms and abbreviations
tl;dr - This is the 17th monthly update on the 2019 Top Ten Experiment. Ethereum up the most in May, plus got a shout out from J.K. Rowling, so it obviously won the month. Overall, BTC in first place since January 2019, BSV in second place. Half of the 2019 Top Ten Portfolio is up at least +50%. XRP is worst performing. Total $3k (3 x $1k) investments the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten are up +3.5%, but similar approach with US stocks market would have yielded +10%.
Instead of hypothetically tracking cryptos, I made an actual $1000 investment, $100 in each of the Top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap on the 1st of January 2018. The result? The 2018 Top Ten portfolio ended 2018 down 85%, my $1000 worth only $150. I thenrepeated the experimenton the 1st of January 2019 with the new 2019 Top Ten cryptos, then again in2020. Think of the Top Ten Experiments as a lazy man’s Index Fund (no weighting or rebalancing), less technical, but hopefully still a proxy for the market as a whole – or at the very least an interesting snapshot of the 2018, 2019, and 2020 crypto space. I am trying to keep this project simple and accessible for beginners and those looking to get into crypto but maybe not quite ready to jump in yet. I try not to take sides or analyze, but rather attempt to report in a detached manner letting the numbers speak for themselves. This is not investing advice – as a matter of fact, the vast majority of the reports will show that the Top Ten approach under performs other strategies. This experiment is designed to be documentary in nature, describing a specific period in cryptocurrency history.
Buy $100 of each the Top 10 cryptocurrencies on January 1st, 2018, 2019, and 2020. Hold only. No selling. No trading. Report monthly.
Month Seventeen – UP 43%
Unlike April’s all green month, May was more mixed. That said, the gains outweighed the losses this month in the 2019 Top Ten Portfolio.
Question of the month:
In May, Reddit launched two Ethereum-based tokens on the Cryptocurrency and FortNiteBR subreddits. What are the Cryptocurrency token called? A) Moons B) Bricks C) Satoshis D) Cryptos Scroll down for the answer.
Ranking and March Winners and Losers
Besides Stellar (down two spots to #13) and Tron (down one from #16 to #17) every other crypto was locked in place. Speaking of Stellar and Tron, they are still the only two cryptos to have dropped out of the 2019 Top Ten since January 1st, 2019. They have been replaced by Binance Coin and Tezos. May Winners – Ethereum ended the month up +16% and got a shout out from J.K. Rowling, so it obviously won May. BTC came in a close second this month, up +14%. May Losers – A tight battle for the basement this month with BSV (down -3.9%) edging out XRP (down -3.7%) for the bottom spot. For nerds those keeping score, here is tally of which coins have the most monthly wins and loses during the first seventeen months of the 2019 Top Ten Experiment: Tether is still in the lead with five monthly victories followed by BSV in second place with three. BSV also holds the most monthly losses, finishing last in six out of seventeen months.
Overall update – BTC increases lead over second place BSV, XRP still worst performing
Ahead until just last month, BSV lost a lot of ground to BTC in May. Bitcoin is now up +168% since January 2019 compared to BSV‘s +116% gain. That initial $100 investment in BTC? Now worth $273. As was the case last month, 50% of the 2019 Top Ten cryptos are up at least +50% since the beginning of the experiment. At the other end, XRP continues to struggle, now down -41% since January 2019.
Total Market Cap for the entire cryptocurrency sector:
The overall crypto market added about $35B in May, and is now near August 2019 levels. It is up +123% since January 2019.
BitDom was steady again in May. This marks the third straight month it’s been stuck at around 65% For context, the range since the beginning of the experiment in January 2019 has been between 50%-70%.
Overall return on investment since January 1st, 2019:
The 2019 Top Ten Portfolio gained about $65 in May. After the initial $1000 investment, the 2019 group of cryptos is worth $1,431, up about +43%. Here’s a look at the ROI over the life of the first seventeen months of the experiment, month by month: Almost completely green for the 2019 Top Ten, a welcome change from the all red table you’ll see in the 2018 experiment. As you can see, every month except the first month ends in positive territory. At the lowest point, the 2019 Top Ten portfolio was down -9%, at the highest point, up +114% (May 2019). How does the 2019 Top Ten Experiment compare to the parallel projects?
Taking the three portfolios together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line: After a $3000 investment in the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, my portfolios are worth $3,104. That’s up about +3.5% for the combined portfolios. Better than a few months ago (aka the zombie apocalypse) where it was down -24%, but not yet back at January (+13%) or February (+6%) levels. How does this compare to traditional markets?
How does the 2019 Top Ten portfolio compare US stock market?
Excellent question, I’m glad you asked. And you’re in luck, I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of my experiment to have a comparison point with other popular investments options. Despite the fact that the world seemed to be on fire, May 2020 saw the continued rebound of the stock market. It’s now up +22% since the start of the 2019 Experiment. As a reminder (or just scroll up) the 2019 Top Ten portfolio is returning +43% over the same time period, which is about double the S&P 500. The initial $1k investment I put into crypto would be worth $1,220 had it been redirected to the S&P 500 in January 2019. But what if I took the same world’s-slowest-dollar-cost-averaging/$1,000-per-year-in-January approach with the S&P 500? It would yield the following:
$1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018: +$140
$1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019: +$220
$1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020: -$50
Taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for a similar approach with the S&P: After three $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, and 2020, my portfolio would be worth $3,310. That $3,310 is up over+10%since January 2018, compared to the $3,104 value (+3.5%) of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios. That’s about a 7% difference in favor of the stock market. Last month, there was only a 3% difference, the month before, the gap was 13% (all in favor of the stock market).
The difference between the 2019 Top Ten crypto group and the overall crypto market is stark. Since January 2019, the overall market has gained +123% compared to the 2019 Top Ten crypto group which has gained +43%. This is an absolutely massive 80% gap. A +43% return is solid compared to the stock market, but it also implies that an investor would have done much better picking different cryptos or investing in the entire market instead of focusing only on the Top Ten. There are a few examples of this approach outperforming the overall market in this 2019 Top Ten Crypto Experiment, but the cases are few and far between. The 2018 Top Ten portfolio, on the other hand, has never outperformed the overall market, at least not in the first twenty-nine months of that Experiment. For the most recent 2020 Top Ten group, the opposite had been true: the 2020 Top Ten had easily outperformed the overall market 100% of the time…until this month.
The BTC halving event came and went in May and crypto markets shrugged. As the world continues to change because of COVID-19, what will be crypto’s place when we finally emerge on the other side? Final word: Please take care of yourselves, your families, and your communities. Stay safe out there. Thanks for reading and for supporting the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way. Feel free to reach out with any questions and stay tuned for progress reports. Keep an eye out for the original 2018 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiment and the recently launched 2020 Top Ten Experiment.

List of bitcoin person-to-person (P2P) bitcoin exchanges (e.g., Bisq, HodlHodl, LocalCoinSwap, etc.)
Following is a list of P2P exchanges for trading Bitcoin. Common payment methods include bank transfer, cash deposited in the seller's bank account, in-person cash (face-to-face) trades as well as payment networks such as Zelle, Alipay, even Cash App and PayPal, for example. Any that I am missing?
I have asked this first on BitcoinBeginners and Bitcoin but my question was not well received there. I'll try my luck here. I would like to start trading BTC on Blade which, as many of you may know, currently offers zero-fee crypto trading. I have learned quite a bit about bitcoins and the block-chain technology, followed the market and designed a trading strategy in the past. Due to the high trading fees and 2018 bubble burst I was reluctant to start trading. To do that, here are the steps I understand I need to follow:
Find an exchange in order to buy BTC with fiat money.
Find a wallet where to store the acquired bitcoins.
Deposit BTC to blade.
Questions: (1) Which exchange would you recommend? My main (ordered) criteria are:
I'm currently considering Kraken and Binance. BitSquare was another option, but apparently it requires one to transfer BTC upfront in order to be able to buy BTC. (2) Something I don't understand at the moment: why do I have to use a wallet for my BTC, aren't they securely stored with the exchange where I buy them? (3) Besides Blade I have also heard that Digitex, Amplify, Shapeshift offer comission-free trading. Which would you recommend?

I bought $1000 worth of the Top Ten Cryptos on January 1st, 2019 (Oct. 2019 Update)
EXPERIMENT - Tracking Top 10 Cryptocurrencies of 2019 - Month Ten - UP 39% Full blog post with all the tables tl;dr - Every 2019 Top Ten crypto gained in October and the group is up +39% so far this year. BTSV and Tron have a strong month while Bitcoin leads overall followed by Litecoin up +145% and 95% respectively. Take the two Top Ten experiments together, I'm down -21%. **NOTE** I'm not usually one to name and shame, but since you haven't responded to my message in a week u/cryptosyringe: I noticed you took my post without permission, posted it on your website, removed my links, claimed it as your own, without giving me a mention let alone credit. Stop it. The Experiment: Instead of hypothetically tracking cryptos, I made an actual $1000 investment, $100 in each of the Top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap as of the 1st of January 2018. I then repeated the experiment on the 1st of January 2019. Think of it as a lazy man's Index Fund (no weighting or rebalancing), less technical, more fun (for me at least), and hopefully still a proxy for the market as a whole - or at the very least an interesting snapshot of the 2019 crypto space. I am trying to keep this project simple and accessible for beginners and those looking to get into crypto but maybe not quite ready to jump in yet. I try not to take sides or analyze, but rather report and document in a detached manner letting the numbers speak for themselves. The Rules: Buy $100 of each the Top 10 cryptocurrencies on January 1st, 2019. Hold only. No selling. No trading. Report monthly. Compare loosely to the 2018 Top Ten Experiment. Month Ten - Up 39% With each of the 2019 Top Ten Cryptos finishing in the green (except Tether of course, which was flat), October decisively snapped the downward trend we had seen over the three previous months. When Tether finishes last, the portfolio is having a good month. Overall, the 2019 Top Ten portfolio is up a strong +39% on the year, but no where near the +114% peak this same portfolio achieved at the end of May 2019. Tied last month with the stock market (as measured by the S&P 500), the 2019 Top Ten Portfolio has regained a healthy lead (see below). Ranking and October Winners and Losers It's almost as if the rankings were reset in October: despite some internal maneuvering (Bitcoin Cash back into fourth place, EOS and Tether both slipping a spot to #8 and #5, respectively), the players remain almost exactly the same. Even Tron, which has slipped out of the Top Ten, is almost back in its original position thanks to a very strong month where it climbed from #14 to #11. This is quite different from the 2018 Top Ten Experiment where after 10 months four cryptos had convincingly dropped out of the Top Ten. It's only gotten worse as those four have continued to fall as the 2018 experiment rolls on. Again, despite its strong October, Tron stands alone as a Top Ten dropout, replaced by Binance Coin. October Winners - BTCSV gained a massive +50%, easily outperforming the field. Second goes to Tron, up +36%. October Losers - Tether alone was in the red this month, followed by Ethereum which gained a modest +4%. For those keeping score, here is tally of which coins have the most monthly wins and loses during the first ten months of this experiment: a three way tie between Bitcoin, BTCSV, and Tether all with two monthly victories each. Bitcoin SV also has the most monthly loses, finishing last in four out of the first ten months of 2019. Overall update – Bitcoin with a sizable lead followed by Litecoin. All cryptos in positive territory except Ripple and Stellar. BTC and Litecoin are still far ahead of their peers, up +145% and +95% respectively in 2019. My initial $100 investment in Bitcoin is now worth $250. All Top Ten cryptos are still either flat or in positive territory except Ripple and Stellar. Although each increased in value in October, Stellar remains in the basement down -40% so far in 2019, followed by Ripple, down -18%. Total Market Cap for the entire cryptocurrency sector: After three straight losing months, October saw a bounce. The total crypto market cap increased about $26B in October. The overall market cap is sitting around the $248B mark, a level we last saw in September 2019. Still, it has been a very strong year for crypto: we've seen an increase of +95% in total crypto market cap since the beginning of 2019. Bitcoin dominance: Bitcoin dominance ticked down slightly in October, down about -1/2% to 67.2%. The month end high in 2019 was 70.5% in at the end of August. Overall return on investment from January 1st, 2019: If I cashed out today, my $1,000 initial investment would return $1,386, a +39% gain. I'm down significantly in my 2018 Top Ten Experiment. If I cashed that group out today, the $1000 initial investment would return about $192, down nearly -81%. So, taken together, here's the bottom bottom line: after a $2000 investment in both the 2018 and the 2019 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, my portfolios would be worth $1,579. That's down about -21%. Implications/Observations: With the market as a whole up +95% on the year, how have the 2019 Top Ten cryptos performed? Up a respectable but still much lower +39%. As a reminder, in May 2019, the gains from the Top Ten and the entire market were both exactly the same: +114%. The last few months have seen that gap widen: for five straight months, focusing only on the Top Ten has been a losing strategy. This is reminiscent of last year as at no point in the Top Ten 2018 Experiment did the Top Ten strategy outperform the overall market. I'm also tracking the S&P 500 as part of my experiment to have a comparison point with other popular investments options. The S&P 500 is up a very healthy +23% since the beginning of 2019, but still much less than the Top Ten of 2019, up +39%. For reference, the gap has been extremely wide at different points during the year. For example, the Top Ten portfolio was up +114% compared to +10% for the S&P in late May of this year. The initial $1k investment I put into crypto would have yielded +$230 had it been redirected to the S&P. Conclusion: Probably due to the news out of China, October saw a welcome reversal of a multi month slide in crypto. The last few months of the year have been busy in recent history. Around this time of year two years ago, the market started skyrocketing while last year it started to slide. We'll soon see which of these histories repeat itself or if crypto has something altogether different in store. If you're just finding this experiment now, here's the backstory: On the 1st of January, 2018, I bought $100 each of the Top Ten cryptos at the time for a total investment of $1000 to see how they would perform over the year. I tracked the experiment and reported each month. The result? I ended 2018 down -85%, my $1000 worth only $150. After last year's experiment ended, I decided to do two things:
Extend the Top Ten 2018 Crypto project one more year. The experiment is now in its 22nd month. You can check out the latest update here.
What you're reading now is the 10th report of a parallel project: this year I repeated the experiment, purchasing another $1000 ($100 each) of the new Top Ten cryptos as of January 1st, 2019.
Thanks for reading and the support for the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way. Feel free to reach out with any questions and stay tuned for progress reports.
Hi Guys, I am wondering if you can help me please, I am currently building a website where I can teach people about Bitcoin. This will be mainly for beginners; where new users can educate then self about bitcoin and the basic on how to open account, secure the account and mail using 2FA, buy, sell, choosing the right wallet, hardware wallet and more, etc. The website will be in Spanish as I find out that here in Spain people don’t know much about Bitcoin and many believe it is for criminal and terrorist. I don’t want to make it complicate for the users as the idea is to help then understand why it is important to embrace this technology in which is here to stay. I do have a lot of material already, but I didn’t realise when you are building something there are many little pieces that you learn on the road that you didn’t even remember. I would like your advice for example, I am planning in creating two tutorial on Trezor T and Ledger Nano S for the serious people who really want to invest and explain why it is import to use hardware wallet but what will be yours advice on daily wallet?. I do want to take only 1 possible 2. I do want to take into consideration users on Android and Apple. I been using for a long time BreadWallet and Exodus is great, but I want your opinion. The idea is to provide quality content, make it easy for the new people so they don’t go crazy download wallet and keep the 12 words etc, open accounts with exchanges, I do use Binance but I want your opinion in what work and what doesn’t work. I do have some idea, but I would like to hear your opinion in anything, video tutorial, top exchanges, best wallet, anything that can help me to make it easy to them. Any information will be welcome and really appreciate, bitcoin help me a lot to understand Bitcoin and now I would like to do the same but in my mother tongue. What I really want is give back to the community here what I learn here on reddit and other places. Please note that I do not want to be another website with news and daily info on BTC, I do want people to understand bitcoin and blockchain and this can be using video tutorial or anything else. Thank you so much for your time. Please forgive my broken English... Don't be hard...
