I just read the previous thread, and I did see that you raised some similar concerns.
I do agree that the surplus should be converted into a TKN which we believe will outperform the market. If the trend was bearish, then I would vote stables, whereas now, I am more leaning to sideways up and down and eventually turning into a bull market. Therefor it makes more sense at the present time to spend the surplus on TKNs rather than stables ( if you agree on this market outlook )
Then then leads to the question of, which TKN will give the greatest performance, which also comes with the least amount of risk. To myself, there are only 2 options here, BTC and ETH.
Before we begin on discussing any strategy, it is appropriate to first determine which TKN will have the greatest gain in price, as the gains here will likely…or certainly… outperform any trading strategy over a 2 year period. Bitcoin is the safest coin from a regulatory standpoint. Ethereum % wise, given past cycles, should $ outperform BTC. However with each passing cycle, the difference between the two closes.
Every market cycle will differ from one to another. And if this market cycle, at any point, is fueled by a spot BTC ETF, then I am suggesting at that virtually no alt will be able to keep pace with BTC, at least initially. But the spot BTC ETF is a big “if”. No guarantee here.
I do not feel that throwing all of our eggs into one basket is the right way to go.
Splitting the surplus into both BTC and ETH is IMO the way to go. and if we put those funds to work via Carbon afterwards, they should be done so in the safest way possible.
I don’t think that the surplus funds should ever be put into a btc/bnt or eth/bnt strategy… unless we are betting on BNT losing value to either TKN pairing. if anything, these 2 strategies would likely earn $, but we’d also be shooting ourselves in the other foot by doing so. I’m not going to pretend to be some master trader, but the person or persons who choose to take on the responsibility of actively managing the surplus should be. Things aren’t as simple as buy low and sell high. What happens when you sell high and the prices keeps going higher? We’ve all been there.
to sum things up
- the surplus should be converted into a TKN that will be safe and outperfom the market. If the TKN won’t outperform BTC, then the funds should be placed in BTC. I vote for a split between ETH & wBTC
- if the funds are placed into a strategy, a real pro trader should be actively managing these ensuring they are outperforming simply buying and hodling btc or eth.
