How to Use the Crypto Core Strategy

  • To follow along with this strategy, an investor can mirror the proposed allocations to each selected cryptoasset. Subscribers will be notified of changes made to our allocations.
  • We will often allocate to stablecoins during periods of reduced exposure to crypto (bear markets). Note that investors should view this element of the portfolio as critical managing risk.
  • Visit the tools section of the FSI Crypto Core Strategy to calculate your proposed allocation to this strategy.
  • Example: A $10,000 crypto portfolio with 50% allocation to USDC and 50% allocation to BTC will have $5,000 in USDC and $5,000 in BTC.
