A lot of people getting into crypto investing follow one simple rule: "Buy Bitcoin, or buy Bitcoin and some Ethereum."
As we know by now, that's not the way to go - and the people who've done that probably aren't happy after this past week. Bitcoin was down around 17% for the year as of Friday, which included a huge tumble down to about $34,600 in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ether was down around 27% for the same time period.

These cryptos have outperformed BTC by as much as 5,567X in the same time period, and experts are saying that as much as $10 trillion in new wealth could soon be up for grabs for those who get in now.
