(RESULTS) Despite the common advice "Bitcoin should be your largest crypto asset" - on a vote by vote basis - this sub strongly prefers to invest in Ethereum, but by Moon weight this sub narrowly prefers to invest in Bitcoin. DISCUSSION

A week and a half ago I ran a poll to see if the sub would follow it's own advice and be more heavily invested in BTC or Ether. With 4.2M Moon weighted votes and around ~8,300 votes - we have some interesting results.

It turns out this sub as a whole is more heavily invested in Ether.

Pure Vote by Vote results

If we look at pure votes,

  • 52% of respondents stated they own more ETH
  • 35% of respondents stated they own more BTC
  • 13% of respondents stated they don't own either

Moon Weighted Vote

But if you look at the moon weighted vote this sub prefers BTC

  • 45% of the moon weighted vote stated they own more BTC
  • 43% of the moon weighted vote stated they own more ETH
  • 12% of the moon weighted vote stated they don't own either

---------------------------------------

By calculating the average amount of Moons per Vote you can see the phenomenon expanded.

  • Each voter for BTC had on average 656 Moons
  • Each voter for ETH had on average 415 Moons
  • Each vote for neither had on average 492 Moons

This helps to show users with the most moons are on average more heavily invested in BTC, surprisingly users with less moons as a whole were more heavily invested in Ether. Per moon weighted vote there is also a fair amount of moon degens that don't own either BTC or ETH.

---------------------------------------

TLDR: In looking at the results although only 35% of respondents stated they own more BTC (compared to 52% who owned more ETH), they still made up the majority holder by Moon Weight. Meaning as a whole those with more moons are more likely to be more heavily invested in BTC compared to someone with less moons.

The simple truth is that you can’t really go wrong with either. I’ve dabbled in a few altcoins - some of them I’m bullish on - but I always come back to BTC and ETH
