The Great HODL Challenge

Late last month, an image circulated in the Web containing a scenario where... if you buy $100 worth of each of the top 10 cryptocurrencies on the 1st of Jan 2017, they are worth more than $47k on the 15th of December (a few days before Bitcoin had a correction).

Many cryptotraders, I myself included, wanted to duplicate that method, and in this thread, I would like to invite everyone to share updates on the HODLings as frequent as you like.

Rules:
- Can have several updates per day especially if there is substantial movement since last update
- It doesn't need to be $100 worth for each coin, as some might have less than the amount, or some might have bought more
- Initial amount per coin (in USD or any fiat you measure) doesn't need to be the same
- Doesn't need to give the actual amounts of portfolio
- As you go along, you can buy more coins/add another type of coin and just give the overall update afterwards

Format:
Start date: Month you started
Exchange(s): Can be just one or more depending on your hodlings
Coins: How many types of coins
Timestamp: Time your updated movement is taken
Movement: Rate of increase/decrease for the whole portfolio
Notes (if any): Ex. Coin X takes a massive dip etc.

Notes: Still on the negative side after a number of days

Exchanges: Gdax, Binance, Bittrex (Used to have some in Kraken, but moved them out to Binance). Since my list has some stocks on NYSE/NASDAQ, all of my stocks transactions are on Ally.com
Coins: 9, but may add one more soon. (Note my portfolio numbers have 2 stocks included)
Timestamp: 11:25 PM 1/11/2018 (Tip on the timestamp, open Notepad in MS Windows. Then press F5, it will paste in the timestamp.)
Movement: Overall +27.51%. Today +2.61%

Changes to come.
- Still waiting on some cash to be cleared on Gdax which I will use to buy ETH, then will transfer some to Binance to buy another coin. Still deciding which one.
- I do have 2 stocks in my portfolio, buy I am planning to buy some DIS stock in the next few days.

My next step is to replicate my experiment and create a new list on Binance and other exchange I can move into

A day has passed, and I have no plans of updating this daily. But I just wanted to update my post since I added a coin to fill out my targeted 10 coins. And since my portfolio tracker has stocks in too, and I bought some 10 Disney stocks, I am updating my post, maybe I'll update this at least once a month and/or when I buy or sell a coin.

I unblocked my numbers. Who cares. Private ba ito and hindi nakikita ng public pag hindi naka login? Kasi if I show % gain only, and tigas ulo ako, hindi ako nag hodl lang. I sold everything like 2 days ago, and went back in yesterday. The % gain numbers now change from the day of my first buy for all open orders, and if sobra ang pera, or kulang, mapupunta sa portfolio value na lang sya.

So let's say if I have $10 with a gain of $2, my portfolio value is $12. Then I sold everything, then went back in, then I have a gain of $1 but my whole portfolio value s still $12. Bottomline, hindi nagbago pera ko. But my gain looks smaller though than it did before.

So I am exposing my numbers just so i just have something to look back to. I do not only look at my gains but also looking how my portfolio value changes over time.

Aside form that, check ko din changes in the distribution of my coins, I shift things around, change amounts.

So what I am doing, I feel no longer qualifies for the rules of the great hodl challenge, but what I will maintain is still ownership of my 10 coins until the end of the year. I may sell it from time to time, but I will still go back in and try to maintain all owners by the end of the year.
