Bottom Line

Cryptocurrency assets have provided class-leading and extremely high returns on investment. The same is more than true for the last three years also. However, like all good things, they do take time to mature. All savvy investors who bought all these crypto-assets and kept them for only around 3 years, netted life-transforming amount of money and financial independence. Since the blockchain development is on-peak, technology is maturing and the current market prices are low, the coming year 2020 might be the best time to invest.
