How Much Bitcoin is Too Much?

Currency vs. Investment

Portfolio Diversification

Key Takeaways

  1. Have a clear understanding of what you intend to do with your bitcoin — are you purchasing bitcoin as an investment, for savings, or for use as a general currency?
  2. Consider the high volatility and general high-risk nature of bitcoin when deciding how much you should own.
  3. If investing in bitcoin, consider diversifying your portfolio to protect yourself against large financial losses. Remember the age-old saying; “don’t put in more than you are willing to lose”, as this applies to most investments!
  4. No one can tell you what is right for you — your financial situation and your personal tolerance for risk will be the largest determining factors in deciding how much bitcoin you should own.
