# ALTCOIN ANALYSIS

## INTRODUCING COINROT

THE PREMISE IS THAT MOST ALTCOINS WILL HAVE A PRIME PEAK, usually early in its career... then slowly fade away, in comparison to Bitcoin (BTC). This is called

*coin rot*, and is caused by the constant creation of new altcoins. Some, like

Ethereum, might maintain a steady value over time, due to the auxiliary functions that they carry out. In fact, the stabilization of Ethereum's value to Bitcoin (between 0.06BTC and 0.08BTC) is proof that Ethereum is finding its place in the scheme of things. The same, perhaps, is the case with Ripple.

Given the high transaction fees of spending Bitcoin, there will of course be use value of certain altcoins. With a coin like Namecoin or Steem, however, the coinrot is very high. They decay so fast the chance of making a profit trading them is slim.

Bitcoin will always be around, and one day it will find its value relative to gold and other stable assets.

## EXCHANGE ROT

Let's assume that the average lifespan of an altcoin exchange or a wallet is 5 years (before it is hacked, or lost, for example.) There are of course decentralized exchanges for the Ethereum tokens, but they are not as liquid, making them unreliable for fast trades. Coins can be dislisted, or it might be impossible to withdraw them...

What defines a rally? A retracement necessitates at least a 250% rise over the deepest part of the trough. On average, they are much steeper.
Using logarithmic charts can make it easier to spot the patterns.

## RALLY CLUSTERING

Why did so many altcoins peak in mid 2017 compared to BTC, and then drop? Could it be that investors dumped their altcoins, to take part in the BTC boom? Thus, could it be said that BTC started to become overvalued, around June 2017?

Imagine that in December 2017 I exchanged 1BTC (then at its peak) into

Ripple, which was at the deepest part of a brief trough? I would have been able to buy 60,000 Ripples with that one Bitcoin....

## CASCASING SELL ORDERS

Here is a table showing the 10 grades of sell opportunities for altcoins, for all three fund components:
1. 10%.

2. 25%.

3. 50%.

4. 75%.

5. 100%.

6. 200%.

7. 500%.

8. 1000%.

9. 2000%.

10. 5000%.

In the previous 2 weeks (since November 21, 2017), I have invested in roughly 5 altcoins.

One of them (Potcoin) has recorded 100% in growth (although I sold my portion at 10%).

ACTUAL PROFIT: 2%.

POTENTIAL PROFIT: 20%.

After one month (since November 21, 2017), I have invested in roughly 9 altcoins.

In this time, I have sold 6 of them. This is a monthly clearance rate of 66%.

Between December 21 and January 20, 2018 I bought 13 altcoins (including dApps).

Between January 21 and February 20, 2018 I bought 5 altcoins (including dApps).
Compare angle of growth leading up to Prime Peak, and coin rot after that time. Could that provide us any clues about the degree of coin rot?
