Key takeaways about the analysis


  1. Analysis was done using the data from 28th of April 2013 to 5th of December 2022
  2. Investing $1 each Sunday in each coin, totaling $10
  3. CoinMarketCaps historical snapshot was used, also the prices of the coins were taken from it
  4. Sorting was done by total ROI in %
  5. For coins that had equal ROI in %, sorting was done by total invested $
  6. For coins that had equal ROI in % and equal total invested $, sorting was done from A to Z
  7. Tickers that have another ticker inside the parentheses () are the changed ticker of the coin. For example, Golem changed its ticker from GNT to GLM -> GLM(GNT)
  8. High Volume = +$1 million, Moderate Volume = $100K-$999K. Low Volume $1-$99K
  9. High exchange confidence = positive reviews + positive reviews on social media + 7+ exchange score on CoinMarketCap + high confidence on CoinMarketCap
  10. Moderate exchange confidence = controversial reviews + controversial or positive reviews on social media + 4+ score on CoinMarketCap + moderate or high confidence on CoinMarketCap
  11. Low exchange confidence = negative or controversial reviews + negative reviews on social media + 0-3.9 score on CoinMarketCap + low or moderate confidence on CoinMarketCap
  12. The most important sorting was by color from best to worst
  • Dark purple (#7030A0) – high volume and high exchange confidence 
  • Lavender (#B17ED8) – moderate volume and high exchange confidence
  • Green (#70AD47) – high volume and moderate exchange confidence
  • Pistachio (#A9D08E) – low volume and high exchange confidence
  • Very light green (#E2EFDA) – moderate volume and moderate exchange confidence
  • Yellow (#FFC000) – low volume and moderate exchange confidence
  • Orange (#ED7D31) – high volume and low exchange confidence 
  • Light pink (#FDCFCF) – moderate volume and low exchange confidence
  • Light coral (dark pink) (#FB8D8D) – low volume and low exchange confidence
  • Red (#F84646) – 0 volume and high exchange confidence
  • Dark red (#C00000) – 0 volume and moderate exchange confidence
  • Grey (#686868) – 0 volume and low exchange confidence
  • Black (#000000) – dead coins

High exchange confidence is more important than high volume, because if you can’t withdraw your money from the exchange due to their “server problems”, then you technically lost your money. 

Yellow coins (low volume and moderate exchange confidence) and below (black (dead coins)) are considered as lost money
