1/ If you have a $50k portfolio and your goal is to “make it” to $2-5m. You can’t go 2-5k into 25-10 projects. You need to make concentrated bets and unfortunately will have to flip 2-3 of those winners into something that wins again.

The above tweet by DefiGod, recieved a lot of traction – a lot of users disagreed and said that it is impossible to do so. However, it isn’t true, it is possible to flip $50,000 into $2 million but it isn’t simple.

$2 million is basically 40x of $50,000, ie., one would have to 40x their initial capital to do so. 40x isn’t a big deal, especially in the land of crypto. With bubbles like ICOs, IEOs, STOs, defi, etc, 40x doesn’t seem a daunting goal to reach.

The tough part is, however, finding a diamond in the rough

Hence, investing based on one’s style would help reach the goal much easier.

Take, for example, bitcoin – although a lot of people missed the initial rally, a lot of people still did more than 40x on their investment and are still profiting. These are long-term hodlers and look mostly for fundamentals and belong to the passive investing camp.

Traders belonging to the active investing group, where they can choose assets on a much shorter time frame, disregarding the fundamentals. While selecting coins for traders is a different task, a common example is shared below.

Altcoins and their ROI

Approximately, form 2019 to the present time, these altcoins performed the best and could easily help reach their $2 million goal.

Chainlink has seen a 6826% surge since 2017. From 2019 it is still above 6000%.Aave’s Lend token has surged more than 9000% since 2019.Synthetix token has seen more than 10,000% since 2019.

Hence, it all boils down to finding the right gem and doing the initial and fundamental research. However, investing all the money in one project does come with a high risk.
