Thanks. Very exciting. I was just trying to recreate the numbers of someone who wrote an article about the returns of the Top 100 cryptos for a 1 year hold. 7/3/16 thru 7/2/2017. I noticed a large discrepancy between her calculations and the spreadsheets and trying to figure out the discrepancy.
Here is a link to her article.
Things to Note
The data is sourced from Coinmarketcap.com using historical snapshots from 7/3/2016 and 7/2/2017.
Qora was by far the best bet, #89 on the 7/3/2016 rankings and that $100 each would now be worth $436,418.
Past performance is not a guarantee or prediction of future performance.
The over total is $546,237, though over 80% of that is Qora gains alone ($463,418).
The volume for Qora is 0.08 BTC ($206) in the past 24 hours, so even if you owned that amount of Qora, you’d only have one option to offload it (OpenLedger).
There were 6 coins that do not have enough volume to establish a current price, were delisted, or have gone away (DAO, SCOT, BILS, RBR, XCR, VOOT). These have been counted as -100% (worth $0), since they are now worthless/nonexistent.
Taking into account that there is no reasonable ability to sell Qora at this price at this time and that it is an outlier, I have also given Qora a -100% (worth $0) for a new total of $109,819, or basically 11x/1100% with the readily available information.
She even removes Qora as an outlier and still comes to an 1100% return. Just as I was about to post this I noticed that the spreadsheet is only using the top 70 coins instead of the 75, 100 or more requested.
