1/ If you have a $50k portfolio and your goal is to “make it” to $2-5m. You can’t go 2-5k into 25-10 projects. You need to make concentrated bets and unfortunately will have to flip 2-3 of those winners into something that wins again.— DeFiGod (@DeFiGod1) September 26, 2020
The above tweet by DefiGod, recieved a lot of traction – a lot of users disagreed and said that it is impossible to do so. However, it isn’t true, it is possible to flip $50,000 into $2 million but it isn’t simple.
$2 million is basically 40x of $50,000, ie., one would have to 40x their initial capital to do so. 40x isn’t a big deal, especially in the land of crypto. With bubbles like ICOs, IEOs, STOs, defi, etc, 40x doesn’t seem a daunting goal to reach.

Hence, it all boils down to finding the right gem and doing the initial and fundamental research. However, investing all the money in one project does come with a high risk.
