CHRG Portfolio

CHRG has developed its own investment framework, a systematic approach for analysing digital assets.

Portfolio Inception

December 1st 2017

Initial Capital

$10,000 AUD

Details

In the Coin Hunter Portfolio, we provide a hypothetical portfolio that we track. We started with $10,000 USD on December 1st 2017. The portfolio is not real, does not take into account any fees and does not constitute investment advice. We use a core and satellite investment approach to create wealth over the long term. Head to our blog section to find our latest Portfolio Update report, along with past update reports.

Coin Hunter Approach

At Coin Hunter, we use a similar strategy to the traditional core and satellite approach used commonly amongst wealth managers. For us, this involves building a core portion of stable, strong fundamental coins and two satellite portions which are inherently riskier but provide much more upside potential.

​Millennium Falcon

​Our Core portfolio is made up of 10 coins which we believe have strong fundamentals. By investing in only premium coins we hope to preserve our capital in market downturns whilst add value over the long term.

Catch Me If You Can

Our first satellite looks for strong fundamental coins outside the top tier that are moving up the coin rankings quickly and have price catalysts within the short to mid-term. These coins are considered mid-cap coins and have the potential to have significant swings in price.

Ricky Bobby

​Our second satellite is our smallest allocation and looks to gain exposure to small market cap coins that have the potential to realise explosive returns. Here we are looking for early-stage projects or under the radar projects that could add significant value to the core portion.

Current Portfolio Coins

Behind the scenes, we conduct thorough research on each coin by applying our framework and attempt to have a diverse portfolio of coins that give exposure to varying asset types, industries and consensus mechanisms.

Bitcoin is the first decentralised peer-to-peer currency and its inception birthed the blockchain. It allows the transfer and store of wealth without the need for any intermediaries of central authorities. Its proof-of-work consensus mechanism enables this function where distributed and decentralised computers (miners) solve mathematical algorithms to validate transactions. Bitcoins rules and economic system is transparent and its open-source nature provides anyone to innovate and build upon the network. By being the oldest and most valued cryptocurrency, the bitcoin network has become the most secure, well recognised, and established cryptocurrency.

Ethereum is the industry standard and market leading decentralised blockchain platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference. Initial Coin Offerings for decentralised apps has revolutionised venture capital models and Ethereum is the go-to platform for developers to build and raise on. These dapps run on the Ethereum blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. Similar to bitcoin, Ethereum has the first mover advantage for a smart contract platform and it, therefore, is supported by big businesses, has one of the biggest development communities and has become the industry standard for capital raising, exchange trading and dapp development.

Ripple Net delivers a frictionless experience for global payments. Rather than a constellation of disparate technologies, unstandardized communications and centralized networks, Ripple Net is a single, global network of banks that send and receive payments via Ripple’s distributed financial technology. XRP is used to pay network fees in the Ripple Protocol, and can also be used as a bridge currency between institutions. In theory, the Ripple Protocol has the ability to displace legacy inter-bank networks, which would impact trillions of dollars of economic activity. XRP has firmly placed itself as one of the largest cryptocurrencies since its inception in 2012, picking up an impressive list of partners including; Accenture, American Express, Deloitte, Royal Bank of Canada, MoneyGram, National Australia Bank, Western Union and Westpac. There are questions over the centralised nature of their consensus mechanism and the need for the XRP token itself. Our position is to leverage currencies across all forms of distributed ledger technology and with Ripple currently servicing banks rather than disrupting them, XRP is hard to ignore.

EOS is a smart contract platform designed specifically for decentralised apps. Although this sound exactly how one would describe Ethereum, there are several large fundamental differences that makes EOS “bespoke” for Dapps and more a ‘Decentralized Operating System.’ The main differences stem from EOS’s governance and consensus model. EOS works via a consensus mechanism known as Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS), which simply is a voting mechanism where entities known as ‘Block Producers’ are voted in by the crowd to ‘produce blocks’. They are elected based on whatever criteria you as a token holder find valuable. With ongoing voting should a Block Producer not perform their duty to the highest standard than they can be voted out by the network. DPoS may sacrifice some decentralisation for high throughput (transactions per second), but this allows Dapps that require large transaction volumes to be financially viable to the users. In fact, the users of the Dapps do not directly pay transaction fees – unlike gas on the Ethereum blockchain – but the ‘fees’ are paid via an inflationary token release to the Block Producers at a rate of 5% p.a. Also, Dapps looking to use to harness the network must own a corresponding amount of EOS tokens and/or RAM to gain access.

Eventually, the ‘digital economy’ will simply become the economy and Wanchain aims to build a distributed “bank”. Just as traditional banks are the infrastructure of the current financial framework, Wanchain seeks to build a new, distributed infrastructure of digital assets to form an improved, modern framework – an ambitious goal indeed. Wanchain connects and exchanges value between different blockchain ledgers in a distributed manner. It uses the latest cryptographic theories to build a non-proprietary cross-chain protocol and a distributed ledger that records both cross-chain and intra-chain transactions. Any blockchain network, whether a public, private or consortium chain, can integrate with Wanchain to establish connections between different ledgers and perform low-cost inter-ledger asset transfers. The Wanchain ledger supports not only smart contracts but also token exchange privacy protection using Moneros ring signatures, which will be an important tool for financial asset management.

Bitcoin Cash is a hard fork of bitcoin the bitcoin network and is similar in every respect way except one fundamental difference. Bitcoin Cash aims to improve on-chain scalability by increasing the block sizes, whereas the original bitcoin aims to introduce second layer technologies such as segregated witness and the Lightning Network. This ideology around scalability created a divided community and has forced many not to choose a side.  Bitcoin Cash simply believes larger block sizes will result in lower transaction fees, thus encouraging the development of on- chain applications and increasing utility. In that way – – they perceive – Bitcoin Cash will fulfil the original promise of bitcoin being a peer-to-peer electronic cash rather than a store of value (Bitcoin).

Lisk is a blockchain platform that was established in early 2016. Lisk will enable developers to create, distribute and manage decentralized Blockchain applications by deploying their own sidechain linked to the Lisk network, including a custom token. Thanks to the flexibility of side chains, developers can implement and customize their Blockchain applications entirely, this makes Lisk more scalable then running all applications on the main chain. The side chains are secured by a group of 101 masternodes elected by the app’s owner. Further, by utilising a more common language (Javascript) as the base of its framework creates a compelling argument for developers and entrepreneurs alike to use Lisk. Lisk ultimately are aiming to make developing and distributing decentralised applications much easier for the average developer. Their focus is on building resources, tools and software developer kits to rapidly advance this vision. Given the fact that the sidechains can interact with each other means that Lisk developers will be able to leverage the good work achieved by other developers and in time become more and more valuable to end users.

NEO is a Chinese non-profit community-based blockchain project that utilizes blockchain technology and digital identity to digitize assets, to automate the management of digital assets using smart contracts, and to realize a “smart economy” with a distributed network.

NEO’s Founder Da Hongfei has taken a long-term view of building out a ‘Smart Economy’ where the platform can digitize real-world assess, bring identity onto the blockchain as well as the revolutionary smart contracts to house dapps and has many projects building on its blockchain. Reports are NEO has been working closely with Chinese regulators, for those reasons, it’s often called the “Ethereum of China.” If China were to follow their own history with technology and companies, they would likely come out with a Blockchain that they somewhat controlled and NEO is currently that blockchain. Not surprising, NEO uses a more centralised consensus mechanism: Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (dBFT). In dBFT, you elect bookkeepers (nodes), and 2/3 of the bookkeepers will agree on what goes in each block. The NEO Council currently controls all the Bookkeeping Nodes and are beginning to roll them out to trusted parties. ‘The City of Zion’, the thousands-strong NEO developer community have received first honours.

Dash is attempting to solve the ‘crypto for Grandma’ issue, i.e making a ease of user interface and wallet (Evolution). Dash’s point of difference to major currencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin is that the network can make transactions in a more private and speedy manner because of these three features: Masternodes, PrivateSend and InstantSend. These features, privacy and instant payments are not leading the pack as other projects focused solely on privacy, but analogous to DASH’s vision, they are offering enough for the everyday user to switch on and off certain functions. DASH has implemented a transparent and strong governance model, where the project can fund ongoing work on the network through a coin emission (%p.a) paid to Masternodes. The governance model allows anyone to submit and vote on how to grow the network. This model can be argued to more sustainable.

Holochain’s tagline read’s “Think outside the blocks”, which is an astute aphorism of their project, as Holochain is not a blockchain. Holochain harnesses distributed ledger technology, except it’s not made out of blocks but rather distributed hash tables (similar to BitTorrent), and it’s not one huge chain but lots of small interconnected ones, because “local” nodes don’t need to know the global state, so consensus is reached only where needed. Put more simply, Holochain moves away from data-centric to an agent-centric model. The effects of doing so provides the underlying cryptographic fabric to maintain data integrity across unlimited peers without requiring consensus of a main chain. The aim is that Holochian provides scalability, becomes exponentially faster, more energy efficient and vastly cheaper to use and interact on. Holochain provides toolkit that produces stand-alone programs but for serverless high-profile applications, where the app user actually becomes the node themself. HOLO is the flagship App built on Holochian and is a distributed app hosting platform, aiming for ease of use of adoption of Holochain apps, and build a bridge between the centralized and decentralised web.

The AION network is a multi-tier blockchain network designed to support a future where many blockchains exist to solve unique industry problems and to power the services of the modern world. For this to happen, blockchains need to work with one another – interoperability. Aion could become the common protocol used for these blockchains, enabling more efficient and decentralized systems to be built. The Aion protocol enables the development of a federated blockchain network, making it possible to seamlessly integrate dissimilar blockchain systems in a multi-tier hub-and-spoke model, similar to the internet. Think of AION much similar to TCP/IP in terms of the internet. i.e we need all these blockchains communicating with each other in a common language if we are truly going have a decentralised future. This problem of interoperability is being solved by multiple bottom layer protocol in order for them to “win” the protocol war. The reason we like AION is its sole purpose is to build bridges between all blockchains and is run by an open source community. If AION becomes a leader in interoperability, it could see a significant market share of the entire space. They have a token model to back it up that requires staking and using of the AION token to reach consensus, build upon and payment to interact with this interoperability feature. They are also looking at network pegging to AION tokens and creating new tokens backed by AION.

Ravencoin aims to implement a blockchain which is optimized specifically for the use case of transferring assets such as tokens from one holder to another. Ravencoin is built on a fork of the Bitcoin code, but unlike bitcoin, its design is to be more than merely a transfer of wealth, but it allows others to tokenize any asset they want. Ravencoin is a genuinely open source project (No ICO or Masternodes), has no private, public, founder, or developer allocation set aside and is intended to prioritize security, user control, privacy, and censorship resistance. Anybody can create their own customised tokens (choosing own name and denomination etc.) These can be for ownership of even fractional ownership of art, to houses, collectibles, custom profit sharing systems to even potentially shares in a company. These tokens will be transferable to any Ravencoin address between users. Ravencoin holds truer to the decentralised tenants of blockchain and this is reflected in their strong community support, especially their miners. The network employs a mining algorithm that disrupts high powered ASIC powered miners by continually flipping between 16 different mining algorithms.
