I do an analysis into $1,000 invested in various asset classes and see the return on investment today.

Cryptocurrencies

Crypto 01-Jan-2020 24-Oct-2021 % 1 BTC 7,411.32 60,608.65 818% 2 ETH 136.28 4,051.47 2973% 3 XRP 0.20 1.07 547% 4 USDT 1.01 1.00 99% 5 BCH 224.10 614.92 274% 6 LTC 43.55 188.92 434% 7 EOS 2.70 4.73 175% 8 BNB 14.11 474.20 3361% 9 BSV 110.87 172.95 156% 10 XMR 54.10 285.84 528% 11 XLM 0.05 0.37 815% 12 TRX 0.01 0.10 722% 13 ADA 0.03 2.12 6106% 14 XTZ 1.26 6.41 509% 15 LEO 0.86 3.26 380% 16 ATOM 4.23 34.13 807% 17 HT 2.94 10.37 353% 18 NEO 9.07 43.20 476% 19 999 2.92 0.00 0% 20 LINK 1.81 29.32 1620%​

As can be seen, simply putting $500 into BTC and $500 into ETH gain a remarkable result at $18,953. Or if you put $1,000 into ETH now you will be sitting on $29,729.

Diversification doesn’t always work in crypto, though. The returns for top 5, top 10, top 20 are all lower than $18,953, hovering just around $10,000.

$1,000 invested in Crypto Top 2 $18,953.43 Top 5 $9,422.81 Top 10 $9,365.48 Top 20 $10,576.64 Best – top 20 $61,059.91​

However, it is worth noting that one coin in the top 20 actually returns $61,060 (ADA). Some significant returns are also observed with BNB (3,261%) and LINK (1,520%). There is also a coin that is worth $0 today (999). If I dig through for lower cap coins back in 2020, I’m sure I can find some even more jaw dropping returns, however chances are huge that you might pick up a lemon or worse, a 999.

Now let’s compare to another popular investment option.

Stock

Stocks of most major companies doubled in value in those 20 months. However returns on index such as NASDAQ or S&P 500 are lower (67% and 40% respectively).

The largest outlier is Tesla. The $1,000 invested in Tesla stock back then would be worth $10,572.

Commodity

Commodity performed the worst. The largest one, gold, only returns 17%. Silver and oil do slightly better (35% and 37%) respectively.
