Should you invest in crypto and is cryptocurrency the right investment for you? My name is Kiana Danial, CEO of Invest Diva and founder of Wealth Diva. I’m here to help you take control of your financial future and make your money work for you. Today, I want to discuss both the reasons why you may not want to invest in cryptocurrencies and why I personally have chosen to invest in some cryptocurrencies. So let’s dive in and find out more.
If you want to give yourself the best start with crypto education, I even wrote a best-selling book about crypto called cryptocurrency investing for dummies and its second edition just came out. You can grab your copy here. However, despite all of this, I’m here to tell you that crypto is not right for everyone.
Before we get started, I want to emphasize the importance of having a clear investment strategy. At Invest Diva, we use the IDDA (Invest Diva Diamond Analysis) method, which consists of five points of analysis to determine whether an asset is suitable for your portfolio. The first point is capital analysis, where you assess your financial situation, risk ability, risk willingness, and confidence in the asset you’re considering investing in.
Let’s explore three reasons why you might want to think twice before investing in cryptocurrencies.
The first reason is if your risk tolerance is low. This could be the case if you lack an emergency fund, have a negative cash flow, or a negative net worth. It’s crucial to assess your ability, willingness, and confidence to take risks before diving into any investment, especially volatile ones like cryptocurrencies. You can calculate your risk tolerance using my free risk management toolkit, which I’ll link for you here.
The second reason not to invest in cryptocurrencies is if they don’t align with your values. Investing in assets that go against your moral values can lead to conflicts and regrets down the line. Take the time to learn about different cryptocurrency assets, their use cases, and the underlying blockchain technology. If you find that a particular cryptocurrency goes against your values, it’s best to avoid investing in it.
The third reason to reconsider investing in cryptocurrencies is if they don’t align with your financial goals. Setting clear, measurable goals is essential in creating a strategy that will lead you to financial success. Your goals should feel realistic and challenging, but not unattainable. Additionally, it’s crucial to set deadlines for your goals to stay focused and committed. If cryptocurrencies don’t fit into your long-term financial goals, it may be best to explore other investment options.
Now, let’s shift gears and discuss why I decided to invest in cryptocurrencies and which ones I personally own. My decision to invest in cryptocurrencies stems from both my past experiences and my long-term financial goals. As someone who was born and raised in Iran, where conflicts related to oil have impacted my country, I choose not to invest in the oil industry due to my values. However, cryptocurrencies present an opportunity to diversify my portfolio and align with my financial goals.
