Portfolio Contest

Check out the Staff coins and pick your favorite portfolio at the links below! You can always follow along here and keep tabs on your team member's picks.

Brent decided to go big or go home with his portfolio. He avoided any and all Proof of Stake coins, focused on some projects that he liked that were also hyped up heavily on Twitter. This is just to win the game, and these coins are not necessarily his personal holds. 

Brent's Coins: Stellar Lumens (XLM), Bitcoin Private (BTCP). GAS (GAS), Nano (NANO, Formerly XRB), Icon (ICX)

Michael took some chances, but in the end his portfolio is all coins that he either personally believes in, or personally owns. He's the happy medium between Brent and Karim. 

Michael's coins: Bitcoin (BTC), Neblio (NEB), Divx (DIVX), COSS (COSS), Dragonchain (DRGN)


Karim's portfolio is no surprise to longtime listeners. Even for the sake of the game, Karim is unwilling to do anything but be boring...why try to predict the next six months when you can just pick the best coins? These are the projects he believes in with all his heard and soul, gamesmanship be damned. 

Karim's coins: Bitcoin (BTC), Cardano (ADA), NEO (NEO), Ethereum (ETH), Dash (DASH)
