This is a simple idea I've been contemplating, specially appliccable for people using 1broker to trade, while holding BTC             . If you trade with no leverage, you can afford to have things move down quite a bit before being hard stopped (losing 84% of the position's value), so this lets you keep a 'cash' savings account, holding BTC             and some stock CFDs.
(This same idea can be applied to anyone using more proper brokerage firms, simply diversifying your holdings into some BTC             exposure as well, but the post is mostly meant for Bitcoin             users).

Holding this type of portfolio, you're hedged against fiat money inflation , but you have counterparty risk, since you have holdings at a brokerage firm, so do your due diligence. You can always find more secure alternatives for BTC             , like paper wallets, and the like. You can use this simple signal idea I share here, to add to your savings.

Hope you find this idea useful and inspiring, since I'm sure not many of the BTC             users, or the 1broker users specifically thought about this application (instead of going all in with leveraged bets).

ps: this idea is specially good for 3rd world countries, we have horrifically dangerous fiat currencies and general lack of confidence in institutions, and for good reasons.

This is a great idea. I would just add that I recommend people involved in altcoin trading and investment keep a separate bitcoin savings pile in their NON-MARGIN exchange accounts SEPARATE from their working altcoin investment opportunity cash (btc) pile. The effect of Soros' reflexivity theory will continue to drive btc price to the sky. If you hold long-term you'll have a huge, inflation-slaying, money-making pile of exponential-growth without having to lift a finger.

@Piptocurrency, in the very long run, yes. But following the trends is good for your active funds too. A bit of both works.
oh... that's nice concept

Hi Ivan, do you think this is something still worth doing?
@mostmon, always good, can find some long term setups and build a portfolio with them without any leverage. You will be able to tolerate bigger declines, and hold. I wouldn't go for a long term btc long now, I would be ready to exit once we hit the top, before there is a correction.

@IvanLabrie, Great, thank you Ivan! Appreciate you taking the time to look at the comments. Happy trading!
Nice and simple. I like it!
However, I won't be using 1broker but this has inspired me to find a more proper broker.
@maqpie, yes, this is just a simple example. You can get a xapo card and fund some other broker, or just sign up and go through more 'legit' means.
Ivan great work as usual. No I never saw this post before. So you just have this going long and let this portfolio breathe? Nice

@neverfollowr, I have been trading this actively since Dec 2015, at least. Before I was trading with lower amounts.
