          Any crypto investors have insight into Chainlinks token value as a long term investment into the crypto space?

                  Who will win the proof of stake design challenge?

                  1) ETH 2.0: transition will go smoothly.
                  2) ADA: methodical research will pay off.
                  3) SOL: proof of history is needed.
                  4) DOT: parachains make sense.
                  5) BTC: proof of work still works.
                  6) USD: love my printed dollars.

                  I didn't realize that wci was allowing another crypto thread other than the mega btc thread.

                      Speak for yourself - I have made much much larger returns in shitcoins this cycle than Btc. Not even close, % wise. But the key thing is to take your shitcoin winnings and put them into Top 2 for the end of this bull cycle. Sell majority (50-75% of holdings) near peak hopefully is the plan.

                      My current breakdown is: 50% BTC 40 ETH 10 Alts

                          I'm 'into' them insofar as they provide highly asymmetric speculative returns.

                              Excluding the straight up meme coins, I’m actually a fan of chainlink as well as ADA and DOT. Depending on how defi plays out, regulatory environment, and network effects the relatively unknown Radix could blow up (long term play for sure)
