In the first three weeks, three staggered purchases were made in all ten coins, resulting in a negative performance of -13.8 % since the beginning.

 

We can see that by not investing the whole cash amount at the beginning, we could save another 15% of performance, so Initial rules such as the staggered portfolio construction strategy have already paid off. We also see the benefits of portfolio diversification with the selection and investment in ten different coins.
