Investing Insights

Each of the featured guests share insightful industry knowledge on how they got started, coins they think are undervalued, and many other tips and tricks for other investors.

What are the three coins you believe have the most potential?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

EOS – Ethereum killer/competitor. Raised over $2b in capital, another $1b in EOS VC funding. They are a big holder of ETH and can dump crash the price when EOS mainnet switches on in June.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

Bitcoin (first mover advantage, not going anywhere soon), Ethereum (first smart contract platform with the largest dev community), Monero (dark markets, man)

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

AION, NEO, ONT. I love the platform as they are working together to become an all in one interoperable chain.

What are your criteria when looking to make an investment?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

Infrastructure. We are still in the phase where blockchain platforms haven’t scaled. Its an arms race. I’m spread across all blockchain platforms hedging that several might win.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

Does the product actually exist on github

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

Team, token metrics, advisors, idea, hard cap.

Crypto Sally

Founder of Basic Crypto Trading

Market Cap, Supply, Team, Whitepaper (problem being solved? potential issues with that type of product addressed?), Prototype (working product?), Token Use-Case, Target Market Size, Partnerships, Roadmap/Events, Social Followings/”Hype,” Competitors, Price History

What do think are the most overvalued coins?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

Ripple and Iota

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

Tron – plagiarized garbage

Ripple – controlled supply with 90% of the market owned by banks or Ripple Labs

Cardano – neat idea, but still only a testnet

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

ARK, CVC, BTC. Too over valued.

Crypto Sally

Founder of Basic Crypto Trading

Probably 95% of them. If you look at the fundamentals, you can quickly start to see which projects fall short.

What are the coins that you believe are the most under the radar?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

Zilliqa. They are a Singapore Blockchain project with Sharding.

Icon $ICX – Korean Blockchain project that is moving onto mainnet end of April.

Airswap – Can beat the issue with DEX with greater usability and is launching a new peer to peer trading platform end of month.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

MakerDAO and Dai – stable cryptocurrency without institutional risk. Has the potential to replace centralized banks with CDPs, too complicated for most to understand.

NEO – Chinese Ethereum. The People’s Republic will always want their own version of the truth.

Hashgraph Hedera – A public DAG with possible throughput of 250K tx/s. Enough said.

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

AION, BLZ, BNB. They are undervalued.

Which projects do you feel have the most real world value?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

$BAT has the greatest utility.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

0x, MakerDAO and Golem (Ethereum projects)

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

Bluzelle

If you had to hold one coin for the next five years, what would it be?

Justin Wu

Bitcoin.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

Ethereum

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

Cardano

What is the biggest advice you would give new traders or investors?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

Always do your research. Ask multiple opinions. Don’t even trust a single source – ever. Be it influencers, your best friend etc. Collect data points then make your own decision.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

Don’t buy ICO’s. It’s tough enough for crypto veterans to try to value.

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

Don’t FOMO, do your due diligence.

How did you first get involved with the cryptocurrency industry?

Justin Wu

Blockchain Growth

Going straight into providing services such as community building, brand and marketing to blockchain related companies.

Michael Lewellen

Founder of Cryptocurrency Consulting

Started mining Bitcoin in 2012. Been doing crypto ever since.

Vincent Lao

Founder of Cartel

I got involved in 2012, and dabbled in it until the DAO got hacked
