Too Long; Didn't Read

The crypto world was filled with a single word in 2017: HODL. That’s all we heard about. “You can’t lose if you HODL!” They shouted. “You can’t beat the HODL!” They claimed.

The crypto world was filled with a single word in 2017: HODL. That’s all we heard about. “You can’t lose if you HODL!” They shouted. “You can’t beat the HODL!” They claimed.

They were wrong. Maybe HODLers didn’t lose, but they didn’t win. Maybe you weren’t able to beat the HODL, but I was. Now, I’m going to tell you how I did it. Without any magic, insider knowledge, or illegal trading tactics, I beat the HODL. I didn’t beat it by only a little, I demolished the HODL. The best part is I didn’t make a single manual trade the entire time. I just watched the value of my portfolio grow as I enjoyed the gains.

Portfolio Rebalancing

Yup, this is what I did. I balanced my portfolio every day. Each morning, I traded my assets so I had an even distribution of each. This originally started with manual trades when I first started, but not for long. Once I saw how quickly I was outperforming the HODL, I automated the process. I wrote a simple script to balance my portfolio once a day. This simple script was eventually expanded into an entire desktop application. Then, some time later, that desktop application became a website. Now, I have opened up the website to the public so anyone can take advantage of these free returns. That’s right, I’m not even charging for you to get these free returns. So, you’re basically losing money if you aren’t using the website. It’s as simple as that. All you need to do is create an account on Shrimpy and add your API key for Bittrex or Poloniex to start balancing your portfolio. Shrimpy will take care of the rest. No extra work and no manual trading. You can learn more about rebalancing here:

Oh, I know you don’t believe me. You think there is no way such a simple strategy could provide the kind of returns I’m talking about. I expected that kind of reaction. HODLers aren’t that easy to persuade. I know I wasn’t. That’s why I made a simulator for you. The simulator uses the exact data from exchanges to construct a backtest over the last year. It can tell you exactly how much money you missed out on had you simply rebalanced instead of HODLing. Now, I didn’t just stop at creating a simulator, I also compiled a complete analysis. You can experiment with the simulator and see my complete analysis here:
