Let's Hope That This Crypto Dip is The Last One Before a Much Awaited Bull Run

in cryptocurrency •  4 months ago

If you are in crypto for some months now, and holding, there is every probability that you are exhausted much like I am. If you entered in December last year or at the peak of January, and still holding, I know your pain. It's been that kind of story for months now. Dip. Dip again. Another dip. Yet another dip. We have been dipping since the end of January and there seems to be no stop to it. But let's hope there is. Let's hope the stop is here and the good times are ahead.

Dip: The Time to Buy!

The best thing about dips is that you can buy more coins with less money. If your investment dips even further, you can buy even more to create an average price. If the dips don't stop, you can keep adding small positions. Adding positions on dips gives you many advantages.

  • Whenever the price rises significantly, you can sell whatever amounts are in profit while keeping those amounts which were bought higher.
  • If after you sold your coin, the price drops again, you can buy even more quantity by utilizing funds from the purchase. A rise again means an opportunity to sell again at profit.
  • If you wish to be invested in a project for the long term, a dip is a nice opportunity to add some more coins to your portfolio. Your gains will be many times after some months/years because of low buy price.
  • In the short to mid term, a dip is a nice way to put your fiat money into Bitcoin or altcoins and take it out when there is a significant profit in a few days/weeks/months. (Do this keeping in view tax laws and other considerations).

Too Many Dips Break Your Motivation

You may be a very good investor with a great mindset but when your investments go down regularly, it hurts. It can be very demotivating to see your coins being sold like crazy because there is FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) in the market. I have seen my coins fall upto 80 % (and I was wise to buy some at lower prices). Crypto was crazy in December and any coin could make anyone rich. That's not the case anymore. There are no more get rich schemes left. What's left is a dull market with far less volume than witnessed a few months ago.

However, it's not the time to get out of crypto. I think it's the best time to get in if you haven't already. Majority of newcomers in crypto got in in December/January period. If they got out with some profits, fine. But if they held like some of us, it was the worst time to get in.

I Think Market is Near a Bull Run 

And a bull run isn't 10, 20 or 30 % gains. A bull run is a massive influx of institutional money combined with the FOMO (fear of missing out) money which results in epic gains like 100 % or more in a few weeks in almost every coin out there. It's a frenzy.

I do think there is one around the corner. This dip may very well be the last dip before a happy time for crypto lovers. I strongly think so.

My Favorite Coins

I have exhausted all my current resources already so I can't buy anything for some days now. Except EOS, I have collected almost all of my favorite coins in some quantities. I am not a trader and have an emotional attachment with the technology and projects. These traits may harm my chances of making money in the short term but I do know that I am positioned well for the long term.

Here are the coins I bought during this ongoing dip.

  • CARDANO - I added some quantity to the already existing one.
  • Matrix AI Network - A recent project with interesting tech and partnership.
  • THEKEY - A digital identity on the blockchain project to be used in China. Interesting partnerships and collaborations.
  • SUBSTRATUM - One of my favorite projects working on decentralized web. Bought just before a further dip but glad to add some to an already held amount.
  • ICON - Korean blockchain project with a lot of backing and hype.
  • NEO - Neo Smart Economy is a thing to watch. Interesting project with seemingly great future.
  • NEBLIO - Blockchain platform being compared to Ethereum and other platforms.
  • SMART - SmartCash is an interesting project with a great roadmap. In it for passive income via Smart Rewards and a potential rise to prominence on the cards.

I will miss not being in EOS. I am still finding ways to get a stake in EOS. It should not be missed.

Not all dips are like this 😢😢

I bought my cryptos on the top, last December and January. I'm still thinking how to get rid of them to minimize the loss. I've got some ETH and XRP but it's very tough to be clever. Yes, you're right, 'too many drips break your motivation'. In order to avoid a bigger loss - at this very moment - I'm feeling that I'm forced to HODL. I'm not really anxious about ETH but XRP. I didn't have any experience before and I bought it at the highest price. I hope that it will reach the same level in this year again, and I will sell it immediately. :-)

Thanks for your personal and frank thoughts. Let's hope for a turnaround ;)

I started crypto september last year ,i was happy as crypto keep on going up in value so i made money then, you know ! As newbie , i did not have any knowledge of Elliott wave and fibonacci retracement. So during december when cryptos was crazy in value people were saying this and that and most of them were optmistic ,so i followed them and did not take the profit i suppose to take. Unfortunately, to me cryptos enter corrective phase and this affected me so much. But after that i learnt my lesson. Although, my portfolio is not all that much but i have been gathering crypto small by small since february crypto such as BTC, ETH SBD Steem ,binance coin,and others .i have been gathering cryptos since february in most dip we have experience since february. I am convinced that this dip may be the last dip before we enter a massive bull run.

I'm afraid you can hope till the moon and back. But it won't get you anywhere. I think we can be 99% certain there will be more dips. I'm even that convinced that I dare to bet on it. Would you like to do so?

I wonder what makes you think institutional money will flow into crypto currency?

Cryptocurrency is the future! It would Rise , anytime soon.

Resteemed! and Upvoted!

Hello Brother May i know where are you from In peshawar ?And are you pathan?

Ah bull run... now that's a word I don't hear for a lot of time.... one of the things that could spring some activity into Steem.

What's your take on Tron and VeChain?

·

TRON: I do not personally like it. The first whitepaper I read was a copy of Steem's model (Trx power and stuff).

VeChain: I love the project and what it aims to, can, and most probably will achieve. I invested in April 2018. It's in my top 5 holdings. I would love to have more but no funds.

And also Binance?

·

Binance coin? It's the best performing asset and has real utility. Binance is developing its own blockchain to move to decentralization based exchange business. BNB will be shift from ERC-20 standard to Binance's own blockchain. Will serve a similar purpose in DEX as well.

I had some (52) in Sep 2017 (at $0.96) but sold too early. Bad decision. Up an 1150 % even at this point of a bear market.

Thanks for those insights. I actually held 110 earlier in the year before selling a hundred for some pressing needs during the first bear run.
