Long time readers would know that as an investor, I rarely change my investment philosophy. Once I have decided on a curated portfolio, I would build automated processes to streamline the investment and stay mostly hands off for multiple years.

In December 2021, I decided to do a full revamp of my core investment portfolio and during that process, I relooked at the potential of adding cryptocurrency into the mix.

After a month of intense reading blog articles (special shoutout to Gideon from thefipharmacist.com), scanning through subreddits and watching Youtube videos like most rookie investors, I think I have an up to date understanding of the cryptocurrency space today and what has changed over the years. While there are many different ways to make (and lose) money through cryptocurrency, I felt more comfortable going using money to earn yields through Decentralised Finance (DeFi) projects instead of betting on which cryptocurrency is going to moon.
