As much as I like to take a risk in relative terms being in the crypto space is risky by definition, I want to believe I don't take too many unwanted risks and I calculate my positions to try and remain conservative. I focus more on managing my downside then looking to the upside, in a world where locally I can only pull out around 2% APR in the traditional financial world, skimming anything above that is pretty handy in these times.
But as investors, we are greedy; we're not happy with 4 or 6% we want MORE! We want our little nest egg to grow exponentially, but you can only do that with either more time or more capital.
This is the game we have to play and the toss-up we make to try and secure more PURCHASING power in the future.
I have no clue about the project; it's some next-gen ETH competitor when I hear that as the description I hear we are another shit coin. As you know DE-FI is so hot right now, and Matic wants to get some of ETH's DE-FI dapps to migrate to their platform, not innovative, but hey competition is the mother of invention.
They're already listed on Binance and a few other exchanges but what really caught my attention was that they were listed with Celsius Network with a staking APR of 16.16%, hello now we're talking. You never had my curiosity, but now you certainly have my attention.
I would encourage you to do more research than I did and find out more about Matic, also if you do a review of the coin, please tag me or drop it in the comments so I can check it out.
According to @coingecko, Matic is 104 in their listing and has a
- Price of $0.02592977
- Total Market Cap $97,028,649
- Circulating supply 3,762,794,752
- Total supply 10,000,000,000
- ATH $0.04490755
- ATL $0.00314376

About my trade
- I went to Binance, and I purchased 4000 coins at a price of or $104 in fiat terms
- I then sent my 4000 tokens to Celsius Network and staked them at my APR of 16.16
My plan is to HODL for a full year at least.
Since Celsius pays out compound weekly and if the APR remains the same or close by I would net around 4,700.38 for the full year.
Which would leave me with $121 at the end of the year that's without the price of the coin moving up for an entire year. In crypto, pretty much impossible, especially when getting in early on a bull run coming our way.
Regarding the downside, if I end up with 4700 tokens, it would mean after a yea of HODL'ing the tokens price would need to fall to 0.022, and I would still break even in fiat terms.
Could it happen yes, but that gives me a 12% in relative value wiggle room before I start taking on losses.
I don't only want to bank on the price of an asset going up or down and I like to get dividends so to speak. Adding to my stake passively and reinvesting and compounding, that's the game I like to play, reduces my downside with each passing week and if we do get some price action, who knows where it could go.
Celsius also has adjustable rates, so if it does drop below my buy-in price, we could see interest rates increase to drive up HODL'ing but just me speculating.
Remember this is not financial advice, it's only what I am doing with MY Money! DYOR
