[Experimental Consensus ’18 Portfolios] Altcoin Sponsors vs Big 5

[Experimental Consensus ’18 Portfolios] Altcoin Sponsors vs Big 5

by SmartOptionsMay 13, 2018

Everyone’s aunt and his dog Chewy are so convinced that the next Bull run will begin with the Consensus conference, starting in a few hours. Bitmex junkies sit in front of their monitors, waiting for the “PUMP” with their nerves to become caressed by the neat “system overload” feature of the trading exchange.

We, at, would love to see more of a slow and steady growth, but what does Bitcoin care? Exactly.
As most Altcoins are still in shock from the last dump Bitcoin has issued, there are some opportunities to grab some red-hot items – not because of Consensus, but with Consensus in mind.

Many crypto blogs and websites hyping Consensus across the place right now.  We thought this might be an interesting chance for a nice experiment. Will an altcoin portfolio of Consensus sponsors perform better than a Big 5 portfolio of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, BitcoinCash, and Litecoin? Let’s go shopping and run these against each other!

CONSENSUS Telegram Updates:

While we cannot simply take the past results to conclude the outcome of current events, the last years have shown some nice moves in the following months after Consensus. Keep in mind, that there is no clear connection and there are several other reasons in play, why the markets have moved after the event, it is always a mix. One should not go all-in due to a vague thought, based on past happenings.

Despite these thoughts, it is interesting to see, what our friends from Bitmex Lifestyle recently published:

Or this one Twitter:

So based on the exposure a coin or token experiences with the Consensus, it might move in the right direction. We will now create several altcoin portfolios and one Big 5 Portfolio, let’s check them in ~30/60 days. Please keep in mind, there has always been a so-called “Consensus – Dump” short after the event has ended – therefore the longer timeframe for the observation. We don’t care too much about the perfect entry, we will just throw a hypothetical 32K over the following altcoins and observe what will happen. This is more of an experiment to see and learn what happens. The portfolios are created by the size of the sponsorship to see how strong the relation between bigger exposure <> price increase of the token/coin will be:
