As of today, Ethereum has now fallen more than 50 percent since registering all-time highs of over $400 in early June

Entrepreneur and business expert David Siegel, whose business Twenty Thirty is about to launch a Pillar Token sale, offers ten simple rules for Crypto-investing.

David Siegel says, “So you’ve heard about the explosion of bitcoin, ether, ripple, and other cryptocurrencies? You talked with someone who ‘got in early’ and is making a killing? Is it too late now? How can you participate in the upside of this new blockchain crypto-economy?

“I’ve been involved for two years now, and we have seen explosive growth in these currencies, along with tremendous volatility. As of today, Ethereum has now fallen more than 50 percent since registering all-time highs of over $400 in early June, which is a reminder that it is always best to have a diverse portfolio.

“We currently have about $100 billion in assets on blockchains. I believe that within five years, we’ll hit $1 trillion. My thesis is that we’ll continue to see very volatile growth of most of these assets, so that if you’re exposed to many of them, your portfolio should do quite well.

“As always, don’t talk to qualified investment consultants or advisors - their job is not to help you but rather to help themselves. Talk with a qualified statistician to build a smart portfolio.”

Here are David Siegel’s ten simple things you can do to learn and get started.

1. Put a small amount of money, like $100, into an exchange account. Use a reputable exchange like Lykke, Coinbase, Kraken, etc.

2. Buy some cryptocurrencies to learn about them.

3. Go to YouTube and watch videos on crypto-investing, cold storage, security, talks at recent events, etc.

4. Read about new developments on Bitcoin Magazine, CoinDesk, Brave New Coin, etc.

5. Dedicate no more than ten percent of your entire investment portfolio to crypto-investments.

6. Diversify! Plan to buy at least ten coins/tokens. Learn about index investing at

7. Carve out about one third of your money. Put this third into bitcoin, third into ether, and one third into 3-5 other coins/tokens you like.

8. Wait and watch. The volatility will almost certainly present buying opportunities.

9. Work your way into your portfolio over time. If prices go down, buy more. Plan to be fully invested within 12-24 months.

10. After you buy, put your coins into cold storage. Don’t trade. Buy and hold for the long run.
