After reading about various cryptocurrency investing success stories, retail investors in India are waking up to the potential returns that digital assets offer. However, it is advisable to approach this new trend with extreme caution. 

  • A measured approach  

If you have been investing in the stock markets for a while, you may have an edge over other newbies in the cryptocurrency space. This is because some of the principles overlap in these two markets.

For a balanced approach, you can go for a strategy of investing majorly in cryptocurrencies which are established “large caps”, some amount into “mid cap” cryptos and some amount into “small cap” cryptos.  Also, given the volatility of the crypto market, it pays to have a long term mentality unless you are an expert trader. Although many people want to know which is the best coin to buy now, it is advisable to take a diversified approach. Below are some of the Best Cryptocurrencies To Invest In 2022:

As an investor, it makes sense to ensure that your future financial security is taken care of via investments in more trusted and proven asset classes. You can do this through prudent asset allocation across stocks, equity mutual funds, debt funds, gold and more. You can also have an emergency fund and necessary insurances in place. Post these measures, if you have a surplus amount left, only then should you consider investing in digital assets, because this is money you can afford to lose.
