If you had invested $10,000 in Bitcoin a decade ago, it would now be worth $2.28 million, more than doubling if you sold at the all-time high of $69,000. These gains are too appealing to pass up, so more people are investing in cryptocurrency. Should you invest in crypto, too?

There are over 20,000 cryptocurrencies available, including Ethereum, Cardano, Ripple, Binance Coin, and the well-known Dogecoin. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum, help developers create DApps (Decentralized Applications), whereas others, such as Dogecoin, are just for fun and speculation. Critics deride cryptocurrency as "playing poker," whereas crypto enthusiasts believe these are future currencies that provide freedom.

If you want to invest in crypto, first you should learn about this insanely volatile market, where some people have made a fortune overnight while others have lost their hard-earned money. Terra Luna is a recent example: if you invested $1,000,000 in it a month ago, it is now worth $1. 

As a result, the first rule is to invest only what you can afford to lose. Only a few coins perform exceptionally well, offering 100x, and you'll have to be extremely lucky to pick the right one out of the 20,000 available. Enter the market with realistic expectations.

Portfolio diversification is essential; invest a calculated amount in each type of asset. To always be in a better position, be curious as well as cautious, and keep learning about what's going on in the cryptocurrency world. Cryptocurrencies are the future, and if you plan to invest, do so with a long-term view and in coins that serve a purpose, such as Ethereum. 

Bitcoin has attracted billions of dollars in investment from major corporations such as Tesla and MicroStrategy. So let’s take a look at why you should get into this market.

Reasons to Invest in Crypto

  • The core idea of cryptocurrency may appear complex, even esoteric, but the truth is that it is very simple to get started with this mode of investment. Before you do, there are a few ground rules you should follow. To begin, cryptocurrency should only make up a small portion of your investment portfolio, especially if you're just getting started. 
  • Second, there are numerous tokens to select from. Do your research and learn about those that pique your interest, but keep in mind that many have historically attracted speculation and spiked in price before flattening and disappearing entirely. This is a good reason to start with Bitcoin—even if you only have a fraction of a single Bitcoin. 
  • Take a look at Bitcoin to get an idea of how much money can be made in crypto space. According to Coinbase, a single Bitcoin was worth more than $112 in August of 2012. A single Bitcoin is worth more than $22,000 at the time of writing in June 2022. Naturally, as the first entrant into an area of tremendous and rapid innovation, Bitcoin is unrivaled in the market in terms of both its value and its long-term feasibility.
  • Only a few years ago, cryptocurrency appeared to be a fraud, incomprehensible to the general public. How could this intangible, virtual form of currency have any real-world value? Even today, those with interests in centralized financial markets question cryptocurrency's legitimacy. The fact that a growing number of merchants accept cryptocurrency may be the reality that most drives home the actual value of cryptocurrency.
  • Cryptocurrency's real-world value is being reinforced by more than just the retail and service establishments that now accept Bitcoin. Adoption is also taking place in broad and institutional ways, with the potential to incorporate blockchain technology into fundamental infrastructural aspects of our financial markets.

Cryptocurrency is held by less than 5% of the total world population, so you are still not too late. Cryptocurrencies can be extremely profitable if you learn to hold good coins for a longer time.

Bottom Line

Cryptocurrency will be the right investment for you or not depending on several personal factors. The best way to determine whether this is the right opportunity for you is to stay informed and experiment as much as possible. You will eventually discern whether or not the space is the one you want to be in.
